Iron eyes

Keep America Beautiful recently presented Northsider Ron Aldridge with its Iron Eyes Cody Award in recognition of his decades of community service devoted to advancing Mississippi as a cleaner, greener and more beautiful state. The Iron Eyes Cody Award is given to a man who demonstrates exceptional leadership in raising public awareness about ending litter, improving recycling and beautifying communities, as well as the need for citizens to participate in activities that help transform public spaces into beautiful places. Shown are (from left) Keep America Beautiful President Helen Lowman and Aldridge.


The Home Place has been a part of the Northside community since 1946, but Lucille Nichols is who really makes it feel like home.
