I wonder as I wander

By LOTTIE BOGGAN,

‘Twas the week before Christmas and I went to my church,

But I felt lonely, so turned away with a lurch.

And that’s when I felt a soft tug on my sleeve.

You’ll miss next Sunday, and that’ll be Christmas Eve.

A Christmas service, I didn’t think I could face;

Too soon I’d drive alone on up the Natchez Trace.




Gardening Glimpses

By MRS HERMAN MCKENZIE,

Dear Editor:

As a psychotherapist, I am glad to see the Harris County, Texas sheriff’s department implementing a program that lets psychiatrists guide law enforcement officers through crisis situations. Crisis Incident Response Team members of the Sheriff’s Department carry tablets in patrol cars when responding to crisis calls.








The undead Yazoo pump Project

By KELLEY WILLIAMS,

The Mississippi Public Service Commission finally drove a stake through the gasifier heart of the Kemper County Lignite Plant. So customers won’t pay for most of its $7 billion cost. But the PSC may allow $300 million more in gasifier collateral costs for its turbines running on natural gas. These toes are still sticking up.
