Our second Extraordinary Session of the 99th General Assembly began this week and it actually began with a surprise to most of us. We’d thought this a highway funding session, but it turned out to be much more (about 14 items more) and some more contentious.

A most interesting and kind gentleman whom I had just met asked about the state of the “Bottoms Baptist Orphanage”.
I recall hearing this term when we first moved to Drew County and wondering if it meant that some person from “the bottoms”, a local term referring to the Delta, might have founded the Baptist home. However, research proved this to be untrue.
