Crosby Gloster It may be hard for some peo- ple to visualize the town of Fort Adams as one of the main pos- sible areas for growth in Wil- kinson Cmmty. but it is exactly that. Plans have already been drawn up for a new par o be located near Fort Adams. Al- ready in existence is a Wilkin- son, County Port Commission with a treasury containing abrupt $250,030. ,Before the projected plans are completed, the project may well cost over ten million dollars, officials Estimate. The Mississippi River is .at present deep enough as far north as the Highway 190 bridge at Baton Rouge to handle ocean- going ships. Part of a ,plan that has now been authorized for study would involve deepening the river north of Baton Roug'e. Should the river be deepened as far as NatchEZ. it would mean a great deal to the economm s,ituation of the area between] Baton Rouge ,and Natchez. The [ problem ties in the fact that the authorized study has n:ct been funded, and it is not included in the 1974 federal fiscal year budget. Of course, to snake Fort Adams a port again will require a great deal more ,than just deepening the Mississippi River. The mouth of the Buffalo River, ,and the river itself, will have ,to be deepened and wid- ened as far as the Buffalo Rive,r Bridge. The dredgings from the development of this waterway ,is inSended for use in building up a ,strip of land on the Fort ,dams side of Buffalo so that future flooding will not endan- ger' industrial development of the area. This strip, roughly, will extend from 'the road which connects the Buffalo Bridge with Fort Adams down to the m,cuth of Buffalo River. This project is presently part of ,a report UndEr revmw by the SEcretary of the Army. If and when this projec,t re- ceives the necessary funding, the economic ,possibilities for Wilkinson County and a good portion of southwest Mississippi are excellen.t. It may indeed prcvide the long-needed stimulus to the economy of the whole', area. Ray Cavin League Standings W L 8 0 6 3 5 4 Centreville 3 6 Woodville 0 9 pressed rom cotton seed.
