          State-wide twister training Wednesday

          Most people think of tornados wreaking havoc in the spring as warm air coming up from the gulf tangles with the cold air left over from the winter.

          However, November is another peak time for tornados to strike north Mississippi as the incoming cold fronts from the north greet the warmer air left over from the summer months.

          To keep Mississippians on their toes and avoid injury during possible fall tornados, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency will conduct a statewide tornado drill Wednesday to make sure all residents are prepared.

          The National Weather Service offices will conduct the tornado drill using the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration weather radio routine weekly test at 9:15 a.m. Wednesday. (October 19, 2010, Page 1)

              Must Be Murph

              In most parts of the world, he’s known as “Murphy.” In the Mississippi Delta, he’s “Murph” – but he still has his law that states that what can go wrong, will. Local columnist Jimmy Reed reflects on a duck hunting trip years ago when Murph was definitely a member of the hunting party. (October 19, 2010, Page 4)

                  Company earns ‘F’ grade from BBB

                  When you deal with 20,000 customers selling magazines, Dan Wilson, owner of Exclusive Media Services in Oxford, says having complaints is unavoidable.
