March 20th, 2013 by


The Drew County Quorum Court called a special meeting, Tuesday night, to discuss the proposed continuation of the county’s one cent road tax, which will be set for July 9.

The main discussion topics were whether to designate a 75/25 or 80/20 split to be designated for the Quorum Court to be able to direct to shortfalls in other budget areas, would thee be a better chance of voter passage if it were divided into two questions, and should the proposed continuation should be for 4 or 6 years.

UAM Aerial Photos

Recently MLive ran a story about AT&T’s cell phone antenna upgrade at the UAM water tank called “A Job with A View.”

Monticello Memories – Museum Tour – Week 3

March 17th, 2013 by

I hope you are enjoying our little tour of the Drew County Museum and will come take a look for yourself soon!! We’ll begin our journey this week in the room that now serves as the museum’s office. Along the north and east walls of that first-floor room four unique oil paintings are hanging. The first is an aesthetic rendition of the old Selma United Methodist Church. The church is one of the most recognized sites in Drew County, is on the National Register of Historic Places and has been lovingly restored in recent years. The soft, yet bright colors in the painting give the scene a pastoral quality. The painting is the work of Jerry Swope, an art teacher at Monticello High School in the 1970’s. Mr. Swope has since moved from Monticello, but left fond memories with his many friends, and this beautiful piece of art in the museum.

An Unusual Site

March 15th, 2013 by

Wednesday afternoon, a Taxi from Hot Springs was delivering a fare to the Calhoun Street area.

That may not be a news item, but the bright yellow paint sure drew attention.

Monticello hasn’t had a taxi service in several years, but that might be a good business venture, for someone to consider.


Shipley’s Donuts Coming to Monticello

March 15th, 2013 by

Many middle-aged people remember the Shipley’s Donut Shop that were scattered across many towns back in the 1970’s. (I remember visiting Greenville’s shop a few years ago.)

In a month or two, that can be more than just a memory.

Shipley’s Donuts has announced their plans to open a new Monticello location, on HWY 425, next to Burger King.
