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.

Vicksburg's 4th Of July Fireworks 2009
This was the scene last night of fireworks being shot off from a barge located in the Yazoo Diversion Canal behind the Levee Street Depot. The crowd was estimated to be close to 9,000 people by the Vicksburg Police Department officials. The Krackerjacks (Party Band of the South) performed music to dance by and to enjoy. Bob and I did not make it this year because he was not feeling up to it. I watched the PBS (Mississippi Public Broadcasting) TV station of fireworks at The National Mall in Washington, D.C. They had The Jersey Boys, Aretha Franklin and Barry Manilow to name a few, for entertainment. It was really enjoyable. (Picture courtesy of The Vicksburg Post)
