WCCA Finishes 2015 Bitty Basketball Season The WCCA Rams Bitty Bas- ketball teams completed their season on Saturday, February 28, 2015, with a good showing in the conference tournaments. The United Mississippi Bank 3/4 grade girls team start- ed the day off as the ninth seed in their tournament. This team has struggled to scorn all season but has improved each game they played. Strong defense has kept them in every baUgame this year [Jut the offense has been hard to come by. It was no different this time for the Lady Rams but they found enough offense to get the job done. Point guard Ava Randall would lead the Lady Rams with three points in the upse t of Cathedral McDonough, with WCCA win- ning by a score of 5 to 2. Am1 Patin added the other score for the ldy Rams. Winning that first game of the day awarded the Lady Rams the invitation to play the number one team, Delta Charter, later in the day. Sty- mied again by a lack of offense, the Lady Rams would fall by a score of 10-2. Ann Patin scored the lone bucket for WCCA as the team finished the season 1-7. Although they didn't record many wins, they were young and are already looking forward to next year. The Concordia Bank & Trust 5/6 grade girls team en- tered their conference tourna- ment as the number seven seed having to face the run and gun ACCS Adams team. They kept it dose in the early going but couldn't keep up in the end fall- ing 14 to 6. Brooke Straight and Emily Sessions would lead the Lady Rams with three points apiece. The Lady Rams finished their season 2-4-1. The Treppendahl Super Foods 5/6 grade girls team en- tered as the third seed in the tournament, having to face the ACCS Reagan team. The La- dy Rams continued with their smothering defense jumping out to a three to zero lead be- fore holding on for a 3-2 victory. Savanna Ashley had two points and Anna Charlotte Redhead added one point for the Lady Rams. The win pitted the Lady Rams against the ACCS Ad- ams team in the semifinals. The Lady Rams were not intimi- dated by the fast paced ACCS team as they would work at their own pace to take an early lead and hold on to until just be- fore the half. The game stayed dose until the last minute when ACCS decided they wanted to press after WCCA had ceded the game. Grade Cavin led the Lady Rams with two points followed by Anna Charlotte Notice of the Availability of an Environmental Assessment The USDA Rural Utities Service has received an ap- plication for financial assis- tance from Old River Wa- ter Association, Inc. The proposal consists of installing approximately 74,000 linear feet of 8" and 6" PVC water- lines to serve the western portion of the water system, approximately 65,000 linear feet of 6" and 4"waterlines to upgrade smaller lines to meet Health Department pressure requirements and a 400 GPM water Treatment Plant to treat water from water well #4. As required by the Na- tional Environmental Policy Act and agency regulations, the Rural Utilities Service prepared an Environmental Assessment of the proposal that assessed the potential environmental effects of the proposal and the effect of the proposal may have on histor- ic properties. The Environ- mental Assessment was pub- lished on January 1, 2015 for a 30-day public comment period. Upon consideration of the applicant's proposal, fed- eral and state environmental regulatory and natural re- source agencies and public input the agency has deter- mined that the proposal will not have a significant effect on the human environment and for which a Environment Impact Statement will not be prepared. The basis of this determination is that there are no other feasible options available. Copies of the Evironmental Assessment can be reviewed or obtained at the Rural De- velopment Sub-Office located a 110 Northgate Road, Suite- B, Natchez, MS 39120.

The road was cut by the rushing waters which trapped a number of individu- als at their homes and camps in the Lake Mary area. As a result of the severe damage to the heavily used gravel road, the Wilkinson County Board of Supervisors have declared the event an emergency. Wilkinson County Chancery Clerk Thomas C. Tolliver, Jr., states that the emergen- cy declaration could lead to state or federal assistance to + make repairs. County employee Marlin Reid and a representative of the Natural Re- sources Conservation Service toured the damaged area and took notes and photos. County Administrator Bruce Lewis stated, "It is time for us to quit wasting time and money on repair- ing the road. We need to get the re- quired right of way to proceed with the dredging of the blocked Percy Creek channel. Until we get the creek cleaned out, the road is going to suf- fer damage every time it rains hard. The channel is clogged with trees and silt, and the water has no where to go when it rains really hard. -- Submit- ted Photo Wilkinson County Christian Academy News On Tuesday, March 3, 2015, WCCA students were introduced to BACK (Bennett's Acts of Chris- tian Kindness), a non-prof- it organization established in memory of the late Ben- nett Walker. Mrs. Robin Walker presented the mis- sion of the foundation, and the students readily accepted the idea of hon- oring their classmate by providing acts of kindness for others. T-shirt order forms are available in the office. Proceeds from this sale will provide funds for this endeavor. WCCA is very proud of second grade student Ty Kinabrew who won the first place cash prize, in the Farm Bureau coloring con- test and 8th grade student Tal Redhead who won 2nd place in the math contest held at SWMCC in Sum- mit.
