                  House headed for a shake-up

                  When State Rep. Warner McBride announced Tuesday he was not seeking re-election this summer, he joined two other House incumbents who have been serving Lafayette County in choosing not to return to Jackson.

                  In other words, three of Lafayette County’s four lawmakers will be leaving the state House. As a result, Lafayette County’s political pull in Jackson could be weaker for a while. (April 20, 2011, Page 1A)

                    If city and county officials sign a memorandum of understanding with the Mississippi Department of Transportation, an improved intersection at Highway 6 and West Jackson Avenue could still be three years out.

                    But whether that MOU will be signed anytime soon is still under debate by city and county officials. Both sides have admitted in public meetings to having “issues” with the MOU. (April 19, 2011, Page 1A)
