â€śEveryone loved Tommy Terrific last year,â€ť Dawn Richardson, childrenâ€™s librarian at the BPL said.
â€śWe were pleased to be able to invite him back to the library again. He is a wonderful entertainer who keeps the childrenâ€™s attention with his non â€“ stop brand of wackiness. He was a favorite performer last year.â€ť

A local youth group took the time Saturday to travel to Louisville and assist those affected by April 28 tornadoes.
Seven youth and seven adults from First United Methodist Church in West Point cleaned up debris at two homes in Louisville, according to FUMC Office Manager Julie Gray. She said the first house belonged to an elderly couple, and the second belonged to a resident who ran an antique shop out of her shed. Gray said the sheds of both homes were demolished and the yards were littered with debris.

Clay County residents looking to purchase a firearm may want to wait until September, when Mississippi will offer a tax-free holiday for the purchase of guns and gun accessories.
Gov. Phil Bryant signed Senate Bill 2425 into law April 2, which will take effect July 1, giving Mississippi a tax-free holiday the first weekend in September every year going forward.
The Mississippi Second Amendment Weekend will include tax exemption on individual sales of firearms, firearm accessories, ammunition, archery equipment and certain hunting supplies.
