Good news will brush storm clouds aside

Although the rain and storm clouds may be gathering this week, area good news from last week keeps the outlook bright for Miss-Lou residents.

Area foodies had a reason to celebrate when the highly anticipated County Pie Pizza Company opened to rave reviews from area residents, including Adams County Sheriff Travis Patten, who gave the new restaurant a thumbs up. County Pie brightens a spot in front of the Trace Town Shopping Center that was darkened when Ruby Tuesday vacated the building last year.

The children of the Hakuna Matata Children’s Choir were quite the celebrities last week when they visited the Miss-Lou. Before wowing a packed house at Jefferson Street United Methodist Church, the children spent several days touring local schools, watching a play at the Natchez Little Theatre and learning how to paint at the Mississippi School of Folk Arts. Thanks to organizers and to the group of orphans from Kenya, who created lasting memories for many in the area.

Natchez High School students learned real-world lessons when they participated in mock interviews with local volunteers and business leaders. The interviews were assigned to students by their Career Readiness instructor Chantel Marsaw who recognized her students were not as prepared for the future as they should be.

Ryleigh Probst said she was surprised when she was crowned Miss Vidalia last month. Even though Probst’s mom had also won the and her aunt Dara Shirley won the inaugural title in 1995, Probst said she felt nervous during the entire pageant process. By the end of the pageant the Cathedral senior had won the People’s Choice award and the award for Best Interview. Congratulations to Probst for her accomplishments.

As we endure more rain this week, let’s always be on the lookout for good news in our community.
