Y May 13, 2018 Dear Mr. Editor: A couple years back the :Ole Man done tole me he seed on TV where Wilkin- son County wuz a Food Desert. I tole him that wuz jest crazy. In all my years I done been jest bout every- where down here, and it's a. lot of different kinds of things to see -- trees, hills, flat land, rivers, lakes and even waterfalls; but I ain't never seed no desert any- where. I tole Pitty Pat what the Ole Man say, and she tole ave the news didn't mean no real dessert. It wuz jest talking bout an area with low income folks livin' in it and with limited access to affordable and nutri- tious food. Pitty Pat has got a high up way of sayin' things; you know. Now, last week one day The Natchez Democrat had a article what say Missis- sippi is the most food inse- cure state in the country. That is jest another way to say the state is one big food desert. Jefferson County wuz the most food insecure county, so Wilkinson Coun- ty ain't at the top of the list. Anyway, I still don't un- derstand this here food des- ert stuff. Mr. Wettlin got a lot of good food at this store, lots of folks gets SNAP and there is lots of programs to help folks. We got good soil and good growin' weather most of the year, and any- body with a little gumption about them ought to be able to grow somethin' or other to eat. Grandpa uster say, "If you want a helping hand, look at the end of your arm." Yours truly, Aunt Blabby From Beaver Creek Southern Miss Awards Degrees At Spring 2018 Commencement The University of South- ern Mississippi held spring commencement exercises on May 11 and 12 at Reed Green Coliseum on its Hat- fiesburg campus and at the Mississippi Coast Coliseum in Biloxi, respectively.
