Too far away for comfort?

Assisted living facilities for seniors, veterans and persons with development disabilities in Lafayette County were all built where they are today largely because of their close proximity to where Baptist Memorial Hospital-North Mississippi is currently located.

But now, with Baptist officials planning on moving the hospital, officials from those facilities are concerned about the possible impact the move might have on their residents — particularly if the site selected for the new $300 million facility will be where Baptist affiliates recently purchased 107 acres off Highway 6 West, about seven miles away from where the hospital is currently. (March 8, 2011, Page 1)

            Knowing first hand how helpful the Red Cross is

            Just the smell of smoke from a structure fire is enough to give Staff Writer Alyssa Schnugg flashbacks to the night years ago when her house caught fire. She and her family got out safely, and it was the Red Cross volunteer who showed up to help them through the first hours and days of the tragedy that she remembers as she urges everyone to support, and get involved with, their local Red Cross unit. (March 4, 2011, Page 4A)
