My grandson, Michael "Ethan" Kelly, will be going into the Air Force in September and will be a Private 1st Class, E-3. He was in the ROTC for 4 years at Raymond High School and is shown here in his uniform as a Major upon graduation. He is thinking about aerial gunner or pararescue. He will be graduating on May 22, 2010, at the Mississippi Coliseum from high school. I'm so proud of Ethan for wanting to serve his county and wishing him a safe and successful career in the armed forces.
A Dixie Lady Deer Hunter

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.
