Raiders fall twice over weekend

January 28, 2013

Sometimes it takes a little luck when it comes to winning basketball games. After winning three of their previous four games, the Raiders dropped two contests over the weekend in a 48-53 home loss to Canton and 47-56 on the road to North Delta, continuing Oak Hill’s streak of very close losses. The second loss to the Panthers will place the Raiders in the third seed of the district tournament to face Winston in a go-home game.

January 28, 2013

When Aberdeen native Roderick Van Daniel was a 17-year-old senior in high school he wondered curiously of what it would be like to one day serve the people of his hometown as a leader for the state of Mississippi. And fortunately for him he got a rare, up close and personal experience of the role of a state leader while gleefully serving as a page for former District 36 Representative David Gibbs.

January 26, 2013

Right now, we as a nation are 16 trillion dollars in debt, the current administration has not submitted a budget since it took over in 2010, there is no job creation, gas is over $3 a gallon and continuing to rise and everyone’s taxes just went up to support a presidential mandate that nobody wanted. The main thing that seems to be bothering the media is....Beyonce was lip syncing when she sang at the inauguration. Really people? Really?

After two years, Harris still remembered fondly by friends and family

January 26, 2013

When Wayne and Loretta Vice said goodbye to their friends of 41 years Sherree and Carl Harris after a New Year’s visit in 2011, they had no idea it was the last time they would see Carl alive.
On January 26, 2011, the dedicated husband and Air Force veteran suffered a massive heart attack and died.
It was sudden, and the pain is still with all of the friends and family he left behind.
“I still miss him today,” Wayne Vice said in a phone interview from Louisiana on Friday. “My kids still miss him. They probably loved him as much as we did. He’s still here in our minds.”

The office located by the 4-H Extension Service and the county jail has been closed until further notice.
