It is starting to look a lot like Christmas around Simpson County. Main Street in Mendenhall and Magee has been decorated with reindeer, candy canes, and trumpet- sounding angels. The towns of D’Lo, Harrisville, and Braxton each held their Christmas parades last Saturday.
Last month the Mayor and Board of Aldermen of Mendenhall and Magee made a common decision. Both cities adopted a resolution presented by the Mississippi Municipal League urging the Mississippi Legislature to allow municipalities to submit debts owed to them and the state to the Department of Revenue.
The Simpson County Sheriff’s Office recently hosted a detailed presentation on how to establish a church security program.
A large number of church shootings within recent years, including such high profile cases as the Charleston Church Shooting involving white supremacist Dylan Roof, prompted the meeting in Mendenhall.
Sheriff Donald O’Cain recently named his replacement for Chief of Operations Scott Womack, who had resigned.
Last week O’Cain announced that long time deputy Greg Reynolds has been named Chief Deputy, and will assist with the day to day operations of the Sheriff’s Office.
