PEARL — The Mississippi Emergency Management Agency wants residents to know it will be ready to assist Santa Claus as he moves throughout the state Christmas Eve. While rain is in the forecast for North Mississippi, MEMA Executive Director Lee Smithson would like to assure all the children in Mississippi that Santa and the reindeer will have smooth sailing.

RE: State of the City of Louisville, 2016 in Review
Greetings:
The holidays are upon us and another year is coming to a close. As we reflect on 2016, please allow me to provide an update on projects in the City of Louisville by addressing most frequently asked questions. We have been through a lot over the past few years, including the economic downturn of the recession and a natural disaster of historic proportion. It is you, the people of this community, who have been resilient proving when we come together as a community we can achieve great things. The hardships did not break the community spirit, it defined our community. We have learned with hardships come opportunities and with opportunities comes planning, action, and the difficult one, patience. Many projects of historical significance are underway in the City of Louisville. History is not only what we know of the past but what we create today for future generations. Project planning has been an integral part of our recovery over the past couple of years and the action to perform projects requires the appropriate approvals from Federal and State government partners. The process requires patience, furthermore the City of Louisville must be financially positioned to fund the project(s) because the assistance provided is in the form of reimbursement.
The following are project updates and most FAQ's:

Animals Available For Adoption

Winston County Sheriff Makes Burglary Arrests

Recent arrests by the Winston County Sheriff’s Department could resolve a number of burglary cases across the county in recent weeks. Two different arrests in two distinct sets of burglaries have resulted in evidence, some recovery of stolen property and some initial confessions to a number of crimes in Winston and possibly Noxubee County.


In one case, Austin Smyly, age 20, and Lexie Butler, 21, were arrested on 11/29 and charged in connection with a burglary on Moody-Nance Road in Winston County. Angie Tucker, age 39, was also charged as an accessory. These individuals are currently out on bond.

In the most recent cases, Thomas Shelton, age 23, and Katie Henley,33, were arrested at the Winston County Medical Center on Tuesday (12-13) after seeking medical attention for Shelton for an ankle injury. Upon reporting to the ER, the nurse on duty recognized the suspects from news reports. The Winston County Sheriff's Office provided information on the suspects to the public through local news sources and social media on the prior Monday. Both subjects are being held at the Winston County Correctional Facility pending charges of burglary. Shelton is held on a $50,000 bond and Henley is held on a $30,000 bond.



Winston County Sheriff Jason Pugh indicates that a possible eyewitness identification ties Shelton to a burglary on Hwy 490 and the recovery of a number of items found in Shelton and Henley’s possession link them to other thefts in the county including a burglary on Brooksville Road. The Sheriff’s Department continues to investigate and believe the pair may be linked to other burglaries and larceny in Winston and Noxubee County. Pugh noted that there are pending warrants for other suspects in Noxubee County for burglary and receiving stolen goods.

Law enforcement believe that there are no connections between Smyly/Butler and Shelton/Henley.

Pugh reminds local citizens to take necessary precautions with their property, advising those in rural areas to lock vehicle doors and storage buildings, check their property on a regular basis, use a security system if possible and to not post information on social media that would indicate that you are out of town or away from your property for an extended period of time.

Generous Donation Allows Purchase Of Mobile Vision Screener

Pictured above are Lion President, Mike Dowd (holding Plusoptix machine), Chris Crowson, Penny Crowson and Lion Treasurer, Peggy Ingram.

The Louisville Lions Club met for their annual Christmas Party December 13, 2016 at Pleasant Hill UMC Family Life Center. Present were Chris and Penny Crowson, who in memory of their daughter Rachel, gave a significant monetary donation to the club.

This generous donation was used to purchase a Plusoptix Mobile Vision Screener. The device measures both eyes simultaneously in 0.5 seconds at a distance of 3.3 feet. The simultaneous measurement of both eyes also enables a reliable comparison of the measurement values of both eyes.
This high technology device allows trained Lions' members to provide eye screenings across Winston County in schools and day cares for children as young as six months of age.

The Louisville Lions Club is the first club in the state of Mississippi to purchase this type of eye screening machine. The Louisville Lions have a history of providing eye screenings in elementary schools in the county. This device will speed the process and improve the accuracy of the screenings that help parents and teachers identify students that may have vision problems at an early age. The donation by the Crowson family made the purchase possible and should help to provide vision screenings for area children for years to come.

Fire Safety Critical During the Season

Press Release: With the arrival of this year’s first freezing temperatures, Commissioner of Insurance and State Fire Marshal Mike Chaney reminds Mississippians to practice heating fire safety in every home. When preparing for colder days and looking for ways to keep warm, Chaney says using heating equipment as it is intended greatly reduces the risk of a fire in your home.

“As days get milder and nights grow cooler, many Mississippians, especially the elderly, who are more susceptible to the cold, are beginning to turn on and use space heaters,” Chaney said.

He added that having working smoke alarms in your home can cut your risk of dying in a home fire in half.

A National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 2010 report shows the leading factor contributing to ignition for home heating fire deaths was heating equipment too close to things that can burn, such as upholstered furniture, clothing, mattresses, or bedding.

Home heating fires peak during 6:00 to 8:00 p.m., and associated deaths peak during 2:00 to 4:00
a.m.

The State Fire Marshal’s Office recommends the following heating fire safety tips:

● All heating equipment should be UL® approved and cleaned and inspected by a qualified professional prior to being used each year.
● Always plug space heaters directly into outlets, not extension cords, power strips, or surge protectors.
● Remember to keep clothes, drapes, and anything else combustible at least 3 feet away from all heating equipment, especially space heaters.
● Inspect the space heater’s power cord for damage, fraying, or heat. If the cord inspection reveals any of these issues, the heater should be replaced. Proper cleaning is essential and should be done regularly.
● Never use space heaters while you sleep or in areas where children may be without adult supervision.
● Do not leave space heaters on when you are away from home.
● Always unplug space heaters when they are not in use. The heater should also be equipped with a tip over shut-off switch.
● Use only traditional heating equipment. Never use a stove or oven to heat living spaces. Kerosene is a poor choice for heating as it will give off poisonous fumes.
● Have chimney flues cleaned and inspected by qualified personnel.
● Have a spark screen that is age appropriate for all individuals using any area to be heated by a fireplace.
● Burn only approved materials in a fireplace or wood burning stove; never burn paper or trash in a fireplace or wood burning stove.
● Should a fire break out in the home, have an emergency evacuation plan for the family to follow and have a designated meeting place for all family members. Once everyone is outside the burning home, call 911, and DO NOT RE-ENTER THE HOUSE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES!!!

Living Nativity Drive Thru at Flower Ridge United Methodist Church Dec. 22nd and 23rd

Living Nativity Drive Thru at Flower Ridge United Methodist Church Dec. 22nd and 23rd 6pm to 8pm

In 1982 Flower Ridge started the Drive Thru after Scarlet Clark-Shepherd and Rev. Steve Casteel talked it over with the church. They picked out some of the key Story boards and made the scenes for them. It was decided to line the entire drive with lights to show the way through the yard to the scenes. For our first lights to line the drive we used paper bags with dirt and candles we then started using milk jugs with dirt and candles. We have gathered about 400 milk jugs per year to fill the drive with candles with extras to use in case the jugs caught fire and burned down which they did often. In 2011 we switched to LED lights to line the drive they give off the same glow as the candles gave.

                                               

The scenes in 1982:

The First scene is the Angel appearing to Mary to let her know that she is with Child. The second was Mary and Joseph being turned away from the Inn. The third scene was the Wise Men traveling to see the Newborn King. The fourth scene was the Angel appearing to the shepherds to tell of the good news. The last scene was Mary and Joseph in the stables with the Baby Jesus.


After a few years we started opening the front doors of the church to show off a Handmade Cross on the back wall of the church. The Cross was made by John Upchurch and is lighted from behind. With just a little bit of light turned on and the candles in the windows of the church you can see the Nativity set that we have sitting on our Alter table. We added a cross to the fence of the cemetery and draped it with purple material.



      
In 2010 we added new light boxes at the scenes and an Enter and an Exit sign to sit at the end of the drives.

                 
In 2011 we added a new scene and changed how the scenes were lined up in the Drive. We were excited to have the new scene added to our drive and hope to be able to add more. We added the Angel appearing to Joseph as he dreamed.

We have many stories about the Drive Thru over the years. We have had the Wise Men missing only to be found in the shepherds scene getting warmed by the fire or the Angel missing from the first scene. Everyone who comes to us for the first time is usually not sure what to think but by the end of the first night they want to make sure that they are in the same scene on the second night. We have had fun doing this for the community. We have had the drive thru on cold nights, hot nights, drizzle, snow, windy, and sleet.

It is a joy to see the Church come together for this special time. The Youth Group that started with the Drive Thru have grown and started families of their own it is with this second generation that we carry on this tradition of telling the stories. We hope that you can come to see us as we tell the story this year.
