The Woodville Republican, Thursday, October 3, 2013 Page 3 Locals Attend The Mississippi River Parkway Commission Meeting In St Louis Mr. and Mrs. J. Alex Great River Read National Ventress attended the Mis- sissippi River Parkway Com- mission annual meeting in September held in St. Louis, Missouri. At the meeting the 75th birthday of the organi- zation was celebrated with news media, civic and state officials, representatives of National Geographic Society, Mississippi River Trail and tourism directors and mem- bers of the Parkway Com- mission. The Mississippi Riv- er Parkway Commission is dedicated to preserving, pro- moting and enhancing The Scenic By-Way along the Mississippi River, benefiting communities and travelers. Mrs. Ventress serves as a state commissioner and is past chairman of the state organization. She is currently requesting the nomination of Woodville's new visitors' cen-. ter as an Interpretive Cen- ter for the Great River Road which is a network of pre- mier institutions on the Great River Read that are working together to further the inter- pretive and marketing goals for the Great River Road. Thimbles & Threads Learn New Quilt Block At September Meet When Thimbles and Threads met on September 26 to learn how to make a new quilt block, there were fourteen members and two visitors present. Not only did Loretta Hedge teach us to make a wonderful new quilt square but she brought two visitors with her. We were so glad to meet them, and we hope to add them to our membership list. Several members dis- played quilts. Phyllis Daw- son had made an adorable Scottie dog baby quilt. Phyl- lis also donated two adorable quilts which will be taken to the Blair Batson Children's Hospital in Jackson. Mela- nie Walters showed a raffle quilt top she has made for a young man who was shot. This quilt featured a riding theme. Great job, girls! There was a discussion about Christmas challenge blocks. We decided to donate the squares that were turned in this month to make a quilt that will be given to someone in need. As members sewed the fabric circles on squares, Bullseye Squares began to emerge. We all enjoyed the process and future quilts should be very interesting. Our next meeting will be on October 24 at 9 a.m. at the Extension Building in Wood- ville. Join us if you love to quilt or if you would like to learn how to quilt. It is a very tim morning. -- Club Secretary SMCC 2013 HOMECOMING COURT -- Southwest Mississippi Community College in Summit has announced the members of its 2013 Homecoming Court as follows, from left: Shaden Miller of Ocean Springs, Freshman Maid; Kaley Ford of Summit, Freshman Maid; Reagan Costilow of Summit, Freshman Maid; Kaylie Crosby of Bogue Chitto, Student Body Maid; Marisa Pruski of Summit, Homecoming Queen; Marissa Jenkins of Ruth, Sophomore Maid; Hannah Monroe of Meadville, Sophomore Maid; Audrey Morris of Woodville, Sophomore Maid. -- SMCC Photo SMCC Announces 2013 Homecoming Event Schedule Southwest Mississippi Community College an- nounces its 2013 Homecom- ing schedule of events for this coming weekend.

Following the business meeting, Mrs. Ramona Pace presented a delight- ful program about her new endeavor, Opposite Ends. Mrs. Pace stated that Op- posite Ends began as an idea that God has so many wonderful/gifts foi~ each Of u~.i'/~Jl we have t;o d0 is open those gifts a~d allow Hii~ to use them in our lives. She had worked at Wilkinson County Co-Op for the past ten years but felt God was leading her in a new direc- tion. She had always had a desire to do something fun that she could make money at. Mrs. Pace feels that God has used all her past work experiences to prepare her for this opportunity. She re- vealed two books, Unglued, by Lisa TerKeurst andSlay- ing the Giants by David Jer- emiah which have greatly impacted her life and have helped to inspire her as she made plans to open Oppo- site Ends. The store, which is located in the old Plant- ers Hardware building, is co-owned by Mrs. Pace and soon-to-be sister in law, Erin Daniels, a California native. The two cashed in their retirement and pooled all their resources to open the store. Mrs. Pace hopes to use the gifts God has given her to have fun w~dle furthering the kingdom of God. Opposite Ends has a wonderful selection of gour- met foods and gifts as well as candles and home d6cor. They also are a full service florist and are available to host parties, showers and wedding receptions. A web- site and facebook page have been created for further in- formation. In the absence of the program chairman, Mrs. Beverly Crawford, Mrs. Ann Morris drew for several door prizes. The door prizes were items from Opposite Ends and were donated by Mrs. Crawford. After a charming program, Mrs. Wilkinson served mini custard pies, a recipe from Bear Corners Restaurant, cheese straws, fruit and the beverage of choice. The next meeting will be held on October 8 and host- ed by Mrs. Billie Caldwell. Members will be notified closer to the meeting date concerning the location. nesses. The Mississippi River also plays a vital role in our economy here. The lack of water is some- times just as bad as high water. This time of year is usually slow and lo- cal businesses depend on fishing tournaments and out-of-town fishermen un- til hunting season kicks into high gear. Lake Mary has successfully hosted fishing tournaments for many years, however, last week's tournament had a very small turn- out. Most of the regular participants opted not to bring their boats in due to the poor condition of the road. Lake Mary Road has not been graded since the fourth of July. Local landowners have patched both Jackson Point Road and Lake Mary Road in order to get their products to market. Millbrook Road needs repair work also. Our local businessmen struggle against nature for day to day survival. Russ Ford has operated Sportman's Stop for eight years through floods and other natural disasters. One of the issues he is now facing is neglect to Lake Mary Road. Our lo- cal businessmen need sup- port to maintain the goods and services they supply to our rural community. There is a great poten- tial here for economic growth under the proper conditions. If our roads, bridges and culverts were maintained properly, Lake Mary and Fort Ad- ams could gain economic strength, which in turn profits Wilkinson County. Fort Adams and Lake Mary are extraordinary places. They are home to an abundance of wildlife, pro- vide beautiful scenery, and peace from the hectic chaos from everyday life. How- ever, the poor conditions of our roads are making it impossible to share these unique qualities found here in the Far Corner.
