  • Hiking the Appalachian Trail

    Wednesday, December 20, 2023

    The Appalachian Trail is a winding, mountainous, continual wild path that stretches from Georgia to Maine and is comprised of 2,200 miles. Well, 2,198.4 miles to be exact. On February 24, 2023, Madison resident, Tommy Lister began this Bucket List journey. On Saturday, July 16 he finished the grueling task. For a normal, healthy, able bodied soul, the journey is a dream that only 20,000 plus have hiked the entire trail since its creation in the 1930s. Lister wasn’t even supposed to be on the trail, much less hiking it, per his doctor.

  • Herring's Book Tells History of State Politics

    Wednesday, December 20, 2023

    The Switcher: Jim Herring and Two-Party Politics shares the unique perspective on a transitional time in Mississippi politics by the only former member of the Mississippi Democratic Party State Executive Committee to later serve as Chairman of the Mississippi Republican Party. The author, Jim Herring of Canton, takes the reader through his political activity as a Democrat from the mid-1950s up into his switch to the GOP during the first term of President Ronald Reagan, and then provides a behind the scenes look at his work as state Republican Chairman from 2001 to 2008. Part family history, part memoir, part political recollection; the text benefits from the work of Joseph L. Maxwell, III whose previous research and writing in books by Republican leaders Wirt Yerger, Billy Mounger and Charles Pickering provides context for the personalities and history in the book.
