Former longtime West Point residents James Lewis and Bennie Faye Keller, celebrated their 60th Wedding Anniversary in their home in Collinsville, March 7, with family and friends. Captain Keller retired from the Mississippi Army National Guard in West Point, after more than 22 years of service and can also be remembered from Keller Construction Company, which he ran for many years in the local area. Most West Point residents should still remember Bennie Faye Keller for her more than 47 years of work at the Bryan Public Library where she retired as the longest working employee to date.

A few weeks back, we discussed how thousands of jobs, mostly those in the areas of defense and military, would be cut as of March 1 if no deal was reached to avoid the cuts.
Last Friday, these cuts went into effect and were signed into law by our President. Nearly $1.2 trillion dollars of cuts----over 750,000 jobs----all cut over night. Not only were defense employees, budgets, and the military cut back, but so also were thousands of dollars in grant programs, which will affect many of our colleges and universities across the nation.
The Green Wave are coming off of a 7-6 win over rival Starkville Tuesday night. Senior Freddie Reed hit a RBI single giving West Point the lead in the bottom of the sixth, and Tony Reese finished off the game on the mound to secure the victory. The Wave currently hold a 3-1 record on the season and hope to better their record against Columbus this evening.
