Deputy sheriffs helping keep Ridgewood traffic flowing

IT’S TAKING three sheriff’s deputies to deal with traffic following temporary lane closures on Ridgewood Road, but officials say everything is under control.

The two southbound lanes on Ridgewood were closed last week so crews could begin repairing a sewer main under the street.

Mississippi's racial reconciliation is destined

We hear so much bad news, but Mission Mississippi’s march through every county in the state is great news.

The statewide organization has arranged students in each of our 82 Mississippi counties to carry a lighted wooden cross from one end of the county  to the next.

At each county border, the students, members of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes (FCA), will hand over the cross to students in the next county.

Education should help prepare most graduates for work force

Education leaders in Mississippi and elsewhere continue to belabor under a false belief: namely, that all students should be college material.

The truth is, that’s never been the case and probably never will be. Some people are born more naturally gifted academically than others. Some people are willing to work harder in school than others. Some like being in a classroom more than others.

Why are we meanest to those we love?

“And a little child shall lead them,” said the prophet, and I can testify that he knew whereof he spoke. Years ago my then-elementary-school-age daughter, Mary Adelyn, responded to my assertion that I planned to write an article in the Northside Sun about her great soccer game performance by saying, “and could you also write about my teammates?” She thus reminded me of the great truth that it’s not just about our own families, but also about our communities and the greater human family.

Trash makes Jackson trashy

Bet you've had a jaw-dropping experience when you watched an event unfold and thought, "I see it but I don't believe it."

That's the way I felt when I pulled out of our Northbay neighborhood onto St. Augustine Drive one Sunday morning. I was on my way to church. There was a nice late-model car ahead of me.

I was dumbfounded when I saw the occupants of the car throw garbage from fast-food meals out the windows. Bags, boxes, napkins and cups went flying all over the place.

By ANTHONY WARREN

Sun Staff Writer

Engineers are still in the design phase and right-of-way acquisition phase on the Museum to Market Trail project.

However, officials involved with the trail say work is moving along as expected, about four months after Neel-Schaffer Engineering was hired.
