The Sky Cops security cameras are finally up in our Neighborhood.
You might remember this was one of the first things I asked for when I took office to make the parks safer for our residents and to curb the destruction and vandalism that took place on a frequent basis.
Thank you former Police Chief Steve Pirtle for having the vision to address our needs and to Chiefs Moore and Little for getting them installed.
The cameras are located at the park on Brookhaven Drive and at the Cherry Valley Park.
New 4-way Stop
The intersection of Charleston and Brookhaven is now a 4-way stop!
I have had a lot of calls complaining about drivers speeding and folks making that turn way too fast.
Hopefully this will make that area safer…
On Friday, the City of Southaven hosted their annual Veteran’s Day Appreciation luncheon.
You may remember the City started this luncheon way back when Greg Davis was mayor and he wanted to honor his Dad and others like him who gave so much in service to our Nation…
There was a big turn-out like always but someone was missing… Someone who has been at these luncheons as far back as I can remember.
But this year he couldn’t make the trip because he is now fighting another kind of battle.
Not like he did in his younger days in the Army National Guard, but it’s still life or death – He is fighting cancer.
Arthur Hicks is a long time resident of the Colonial Hills subdivision, and one of the nicest neighbors you could ask for, and I wasn’t going to have him left out.
So rather than attending the luncheon myself, I decided to bring the luncheon to one of our neighborhood hero’s.
As you can see, he and 4 legged pal, named Buddy, were glad to see me stop by.
Thank you Mr. Arthur for your service to our Nation and we offer our prayers for victory in your current battle.
Do you know someone in need that could use some help

You might remember we approved this bridge replacement earlier this year because of its condition…
The westbound lane of will be blocked Wednesday 11/6 & Thursday 11/7 from 8:00am to 5:00pm each day this week for soil testing in preparation of the bridge replacement later this year. A flagman will be on hand to navigate drivers through…on the east bound lane. Please allow yourself extra time and use caution. Below is a map of the affected area. Thank you for your cooperation & patience!
