Supervisors tell MetroCast ‘No’

MetroCast knows where the board of supervisors stand. ‘NO’ was the official word from Lafayette County Board of Supervisors as they considered a tax exemption for MetroCast.

            Becoming a Master Gardener is way more rewarding that I expected.
            I am so amazed by the beauty and “raw-ness” of the nature in Mississippi. I have an area in my backyard with kudzu, honeysuckle, other vines and trees that is as wild as any growth.
