New school security measures nearly complete

January 15, 2013

There’s nothing like having the peace of mind in knowing your beloved children are safe in someone else’s care, especially if they’re in someone else’s care for more than six hours each day.

BREAKING: Daughter of late Senator Bennie Turner carries Clay County and District 16 election

January 15, 2013

With 63 percent of votes cast in her favor from residents of Clay County, West Point native Angela Turner-Lairy was victorious Tuesday night in Clay County during the Special Election for Senate District 16.
Turner-Lairy, daughter of the late Sen. Bennie Turner, gained a total of 2508 votes from Clay County residents, not including absentee and affidavit ballots. By press time, tallies from Lowndes, Oktibbeha and Noxubee counties, which are all represented in District 16, could not be determined.

VOTING UPDATE

January 15, 2013

Voting in West Point got off to a slow start on Tuesday morning.
Clay County citizens were spared the ice that has accumulated in many Delta communities this morning, but the county was not spared the hard and steady rainfall that has been here since last week.
This makes for poor driving conditions on a day when Clay County, with the help of portions of Oktibbeha, Lowndes and Noxubee Counties will decide who will fill the vacant seat for State Senate in District 16.
The race is between Angela Turner Lairy and Kenny Fowler.
