GEARING UP - RENEW U! DAY CAMP

WinstonSTRONG in conjunction with Lutheran Disaster Response is planning a FREE Gearing - Up - Renew U! Day Camp for youth ages 14-18 in Winston County. The goal of this camp is to help youth affected by disaster build strength to face life's hardships. They learn to do this by dealing with their fears, experiencing relief from stress, connecting with God, and building practical preparedness skills through music, art, and recreational activities. The program will be held May 2, 2015 8:30 am - 4:30 pm at First United Methodist Church located at 300 West Main Street, Louisville.

The maximum number of youth for the program is 50, so please register early by phone. Registration can and will be accepted at the time of arrival, but spaces are limited. The priority will be youth directly affected through damage to their home, but since disasters affect communities, other youth from the community will be welcome as space allows.

Please call Stephanie Black at 662.312.5685 or Stacey Parvin at 662.694.1619 for more information, or if you would like to register your youth in order to attend. Deadline for registration is April 28, 2015.

LMSD Forum Looks at Personal Smart Phone/Tablet Use in School

The Louisville Municipal School District held a forum at the
Louisville High Auditorium on Tuesday for parent and public input concerning a possible Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)Program in the District.

The public was presented with information relating to the use of smart phones, tablets, etc in the classroom and given the opportunity to express their concerns and ask questions related to the control and administration of such a program.

Superintendent Ken McMullan told the attendees that education has no choice but to embrace technology, noting that it is part of the future and there is no going back. McMullan indicated that the Distrct was considering the program because, "financially, LMSD cannot afford to buy every student a device. What we can do is at least try to put a device in every student's hand."

Candidate Links for US House District 1 - Be a More Informed Voter

Gov. Bryant set May 12 as the special election date to fill the seat left vacant in Mississippi's first Congressional District due to the death of U.S. Representative Alan Nunnelee on February 6.

Given the short campaigning period and the lack of party primaries, many voters have very little knowledge about the 13 candidates who are vying for this position. In addition, short TV campaign ads provide little if any information.  Winston Web took the opportunity to list the candidates in alphabetical order and provide a link for the voter to the campaign webpage or Facebook page of each in hopes of attaining more information.
