State eyes undeveloped land in attempted takeover
The city of Jackson should be very proud of the Murrah High School Concert Singers. I have heard this outstanding group on two or three occasions, most recently at our church Christmas concert. Their a cappella renditions were fantastic, and their accompaniment of Guy Hovis' solo “Mary Did You Know?” blew my Christmas socks off.
This was my 19th year volunteering for the local PGA golf tournament, now called the Sanderson Farms Championship at the Jackson Country Club. For my first two years I worked on the major scoreboard which, back then, was displayed behind the final hole at Annandale.
At first sight the aircraft on the first leg of our flight to Colorado appeared to be brand spanking new. The overhead bins and seats were pristine. However, the pilot told me the plane was 11 years old, but the interior had been renovated using the latest technology from the sardine factory (my observation).
Maybe I'm getting a better perspective, or perhaps getting worn down. I don't know. But I'm pretty neutral when it comes to the state flag. If I had an ancestor who had died in the Confederate army, or one who was a slave perhaps I would feel differently. Let's review. The flag was officially adopted after the Civil War in April 1894.
