I NEWSPAPER- Established 1824 10 Volume 191 USPS 462-260 50 per copy Woodville, Mississippi 39669 Thursday, August 27, 2015 Number 17 LAKE MARY ROAD DAMAGE -- After months of being inundated by Mississippi River flooding, the waters finally receded and the Lake Mary and Jackson Point Roads became passable some two weeks ago. Now, with rains falling in the area and the roads being used by camp owners, landowners, fishermen and joy rid- ers, the roads are slowly deteriorat- ing into a muddy mire. The Second District road crew has been able to do minor work on the roads including running a motor grader in dry areas and cutting trees out of the roadway in other locations. The county is ask- ing motorists to stay off the road as much as possible. -- Submitted Photo by Woodville Republlcarl hbllsher J. Lexvis In last week's issue in my Localisms Column I re- ported that Hwy. 24 West subscriber Gwen Dunn re- ported that she was expe- riencing a severe shortage of humming birds at her home. She asked if I could check with my readers, and I have received a number of varied reports from sev- eral different areas of the county. The reports are as fol- lows: Emma Zell Knighton of Centreville. Reported that she had very few humming birds at her home this sum- mer. She did state that she had an abundant flock of beautiful red birds. Consandra Christmas, Hwy. 61 South, Woodville. She stated that she only had one feeder at her home and had regular visits from about four or five humming birds. "I have not noticed a shortage at my feeder this year," said Christmas. Hwy. 24 East reader Ann Morris called to say that she virtually has no humming birds at her feeders. Bobby Hartness, who lives on Ashwood Lane off Hwy. 61 South of Woodville, said, "I have about 25 or so visiting my six feeders daily. There aren't as many as usual, but I still have a pretty big group eating from my feeders," he reported. Judydahl Road resident Jacqueline Veal called this office to report that she had 4-5 humming birds that regularly visit her feeders early in the morning and late in the a_eternoon, and right before a rain. She also reported that she makes her humming bird feed by boil- ing water and adding sugar and Kool Aid for coloring and taste. "They seem to like this mixture the best," Veal said. "I had more humming birds at my house last year." i!iii
