A mighty Spring Storm will hit downtown West Pointâ€”a â€śperfectâ€ť storm of Art, that is! Creativity will fill the air as more than 50 fine artists, crafts men and women display their art in the first annual Historic Downtown Art Walk, Saturday, April 13th.
The staff of the Hampton Inn and Suites of West Point truly have something to be proud about, as they were notified just last week that they will soon be the recipients of the Hilton Circle of Excellence Award.
When a $10 a month garbage bill reaches a whopping $2,000 itâ€™s probably safe to say thereâ€™s a problem.
And that particular problem was discussed Thursday by the Clay County Board of Supervisors and Clay County Tax Assessor/Collector Paige Lamkin, who requested further action be taken to collect delinquent garbage fees.
It has become an annual occurrence for the West Point junior high football teams and their fellow conference members as they met up once again on the football field for a junior high spring jamboree.
After a month of hard and competitive practices, the Junior Green Wave hit the gridiron on a cold and windy Tuesday evening in Starkville to put their talents on display against other teams. And even though the time of year is not traditionally a time for football, the players, coaches, and fans seemed more than excited to catch some pigskin action.
It is spring time! Itâ€™s time for everyone to start sticking their heads outside and enjoying the bright sun and great weather with some kind of fun activity. Whether it is watching a baseball game or taking in a round of golf or even just taking a step outside, spring is the best time to do any of these activities.
