A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter
Article by Fred Messina, editor of "On Target Outdoors" from The Vicksburg Evening Post on Friday, January 19, 1990. Photo by Bob Phillips.
Bob Phillips came up the other day with a photo of his wife Marian and a deer she got on Brown's Point New Years Eve. The deer was an 8-point with 16 inches of inside spread that weighed in at 190 pounds. A nice trophy in anyone's book. However, the tale Bob told is that this was Marian's fourth deer this year and he claimed that he would have done better than he did if he had not spent so much time hauling Marian's deer out of the woods. Come off it, Bob. We all know who the hunter was.

Patrick ~ Biggest Loser!
Patrick House is the new "Biggest Loser" who won last night in Los Angeles, CA. A week ago, about 400 people gathered with him at the Vicksburg Convention Center to watch as he clinched a spot in the live two-hour season finale in the weight-loss competition. It is the first for a Mississippian in the shows 10 years on the air to win! He will receive $250,000 and be under contract to the show for about a year. He said that he really appreciates the city of Vicksburg for being behind him, and he also said that he really hoped he could bring the title back to us, and he did! Congratulations Patrick!
