The Mississippi Supreme Court has refused to hear an appeal of Grace Ann McCarty’s 2016 conviction for manslaughter in Attala County Circuit Court, which had last fall been upheld by the state Court of Appeals.
During a Monday morning meeting, the Attala County Board of Supervisors voted to accept a bid from N.L. Carson to replace county bridge 5120 at a cost of $437,890.15. The project will be fully funded by state aid funding.
The graduation ceremonies at Durant Public School were more bittersweet than usual - 2018 marks the graduation of the school’s final class. Hereafter, the high school will be merged with another area district.
