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.

Brown: Hospice about life, not death

January 24, 2013

Before Steve Brown went to work for Community Hospice in the organization’s marketing department, he thought what many think when they hear the name.
That is that much of what Hospice does has to do with death.
Since going to work at the organization and also seeing what it has done for his own stepfather, Brown sees Hospice in a completely different light.
“It’s really about life, not death,” Brown said to the West Point Rotary Club on Thursday.

January 24, 2013

What has happened to our nation? Why has gun violence gotten so out of control? Is it the lack of prayer, federal laws that are way too lenient, a lack of parental control – what could it be?
