Two Longtime Postal Employees Recognized Upon Their Retirement

The Louisville Post Office honored two retirees this weekend with a retirement party at Lake Tiak O' Khata. Joel McCully with 36 years of service to the post office and Ken Shelton with 25 years continual service to the post office were recognized for their service by Postmaster Betty Roach. A large group of former and current employees  attended the retirement supper. Shelton attends to approve his golf game and other interests.

It is of interest that the retirement of McCully will mark the end of a relationship with the McCully family and the post office that goes back into the 1930's. Joel's father, W.W. McCull
y and his brother Stanley McCully had been employed with the post office throughout that period with the only exception during the war years 1943-1945 during World War II.

MSU Livestock Judging Campers Sweep 4-H and FFA Competitions

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Teams that want to win big in 4-H and FFA livestock judging competitions should attend the Mississippi State University Livestock Judging Camp.

The three-day camp in the MSU College of Agriculture and Life Sciences is open to teams and individuals who are 14 to 18 years of age. Past attendees have included top winners in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee livestock judging competitions.

“The camp gives team members a chance to collaborate,” said Brett Crow, the animal and dairy sciences instructor who oversees the camp. “During statewide competitions, the team score is made up of individual scores, so teammates are out there on their own trying to make the best decisions in a fast-paced, intense environment.”

Preserve Your Family History- Share It With Your Local Library

Let’s all take part in preserving our precious family history for future generations. How can we do that? By sharing it with our local library! Why the library? Because interested family genealogy researchers will always go to a library in the town or city in which their ancestors lived to find any family information.

The most asked question asked by a researcher is “Where did my family live?” and they are always thrilled to find photographs, bible records, obituaries or any other document detailing their ancestors lives. Newspapers are a great source, however newspaper research takes patience because there is no index of names. Most libraries have family files where this information can be stored.
