*BREAKING NEWS* Runoff in Miss. transportation race

JACKSON (AP) — Mike Tagert and John Caldwell Sr. were headed to a runoff for northern district transportation commissioner.

Unofficial returns from Tuesday’s election showed Caldwell, of Nesbit and transportation director for the DeSoto County School District, leading the seven-candidate filed. Tagert, of Starkville and president of the Tennessee-Tombigbee Waterway Development Council, was second.

Following closely behind was Rep. Warner McBride with 20 percent of the votes. Tagert and Caldwell both had 21 percent of the votes.

One precinct in Leflore County remained to be counted Wednesday.

The runoff election is Feb. 1.

The winner will fill the vacancy created when Transportation Commissioner Bill Minor of Holly Springs died Nov. 1.

The winner will serve nearly the final year of a four-year term. (January 11, 2011)

    Few voters at polls

    Voters were trickling into Lafayette County’s 18 voting precincts this morning to cast their ballot for the candidate they think should fill the North Mississippi transportation commissioner seat that became vacant by the Nov. 1 death of Commissioner Bill Minor.

    Turnout was expected to be low today due to possible icy road conditions left over from Sunday’s winter storm that dumped 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)

      Keep safe, warm in big chill

      With 8 inches of snow in Lafayette County, many children, and even adults, spent their day Monday playing in the snow, followed by getting warm by a fireplace or space heater.

      Fortunately, their memories will remain good ones.

      A National Fire Protection Association report shows 73 percent of home heating fire deaths can be attributed to space heaters and other alternate heating sources. (January 11, 2011, Page 1)

                  Students lean illustration techniques during intersession

                  During a wintersession illustration class at the University of Mississippi Wednesday, students watched as acting assistant art professor Katherine Rhodes Fields demonstrated how to transfer images using a variety of techniques.

                  Dabbing wintergreen or clove oil on the back of a printed image and using a large wooden spoon, the students watched as Fields transferred a sketch, newspaper photograph and magazine pictures onto a plain piece of paper.

                  The technique is often used to create collages, Fields said, or to allow artists to take an image from their sketch pad and transfer it to another media. (January 7, 2011, Page 1B)

                    Despite the fact the heat wasn’t working yet, members of the Abbeville Board of Alderman and Mayor Betsy Aloway held their regular meeting in the town’s newly built Town Hall for the first time Thursday night.
