Sometimes things just don’t make sense

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.”

January 26, 2013

If your driver’s license is close to expiring, or you’re planning to get one for the first time, you’re going to have to get it somewhere besides West Point.
The office located by the 4-H Extension Service and the county jail has been closed until further notice.
Warren Strain, spokesperson for the Mississippi Highway Patrol said on Friday that “computer infrastructure” problems were the cause of the sudden closure.
“It has to do with computer wiring,” Strain said. “We have to temporarily close the station until it is replaced.”

Murray, Chandler selected for HOF

January 26, 2013

Archie Anderson “Arch’ Murray never got the chance to enter the race for West Point mayor like he wanted to in 1968.
He passed away on May 25 of that year, but his legacy of commitment to his employees at Babcock and Wilcox Company and to the the West Point/Clay County community make Murray a strong nominee for the West Point Hall of Fame.
Murray will join the HOF posthumously on Thursday night, along with Kyle Chandler III, who remains a vital part of this community.

Verdict reached in Garth trial

January 26, 2013

So they’ve given their opening arguments, put witnesses on the stand, entered photos and materials into evidence and examined each and every person called to testify. But sometimes prosecuting attorneys and defense attorneys need one last chance to convince the 12-member jury the defendant is guilty or not guilty of committing a crime.
That’s where closing arguments come in.

Art Walk coming to town April 13

January 26, 2013

Not many would argue that West Point is not one of the most artistically rich communities in north Mississippi.
It is not just the citizenry’s love for art that drives events like the Prairie Arts Festival each fall. It’s the literal raw talent that so many in the community possess and express.
The unique blend of paintings, drawings, potteries, films, music etc. drive the love of art in this town.
It has also driven the West Point/Clay County Arts Council to start the first “Art Walk” in West Point.

Brinkley: Slow your roll

January 24, 2013

We are living in a time today that may be described as fast and furious. We eat at fast food restaurants, pay for our groceries in express lanes, have our vehicles serviced at jiffy lubes and get advances on our paychecks at quick cash.
Our fast paced lifestyles have given birth to such names as Stop & Go, Fastbreak, Fastlane, Rapid refund, Quick Keys and B-Quick. Everything we do now is so urgent that it must be done faster than right now.
