    The Jackson Zoo is once again bringing the pre-historic era back to “life” inside the park on April 1, 2017 so people can “See the Past and Protect the Future.” Thanks to Regions, United HealthCare Community Plan of Mississippi, and M3A Architecture, dinosaur fans of all ages will see nearly life-sized and moving replicas of a dozen ancient creatures during a three-month event that will help raise funds and awareness for endangered species.
    Dinosaurs first visited the the Jackson Zoo back in 2004, and it was exciting for both staff and guests alike. With the advancement of technology in the past decade, a new generation will get to witness more than twelve free-standing exhibits that move, breathe, and even spit water within sight of guests.
     “People have always mentioned how much they loved the dinos when they were kids,” said Executive Director Beth Poff. “We saw an opportunity to bring them back – with an upgrade – that’s both fun and educational regarding currently endangered animals. The Red pandas, Sumatran tigers, and the White rhinos are all animals that might end up like the dinosaurs if humans don’t intervene.”
    Not only will the replicas from The Dinosaur Company (Billings Productions) be taking over a large section of the zoo, but they will also be over-shadowing the events between April 1 and July 2. Members will get a special preview with Doughnuts & Dinos with Dunkin Donuts; the 10th Annual Zoo Brew beer festival with Capital City Beverages will be HUGE; plus there will even be Dino Zoo Camps, Dino Night Hikes, Dino Birthday Parties, and special days highlighting conservation and endangered species.
    In addition, several local attractions will be sharing the pre-historic experience. With the Visit Jackson Pre-HisTOURist Pass, people can go on a DINO TOUR in the Metro and finish with a free treat! Guests who visit The Jackson Zoo AND the Mississippi Museum of Natural Science (“Be The Dino”), plus either the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame OR the Clinton Community Nature Center, can get a free “Dino Dessert” with purchase at either Sal & Mookie’s, Broad Street Bakery Café, or the Manship in the Belhaven. The special rack cards will be available at all locations starting March 10th.
    There will be special admission charge at the Jackson Zoo during the limited time event, which will be an additional $2 per entry for daily admission or member visits between April 1 and July 2 of 2017. Members will have an opportunity to purchase a special Dino Pass at a discounted rate during March and April to add to their annual membership account.

    Law enforcement leaders will soon recruit students during Homeland Security Career Day at Mississippi College.

    The April 4 event on the Clinton campus is open to MC students and others from institutions around the state. Police departments from across the Magnolia State  and as far away as Austin, Texas, will send representatives. The New Orleans police department is also expected to send its personnel here.

    The annual event that Tuesday is set for 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. at Anderson Hall in the B.C. Rogers Student Center.

    The MC Career Services Office and the Christian university’s administration of justice/Homeland Security program are partnering as the sponsors. Officials from state agencies, including the Mississippi Department of Corrections, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency and Mississippi Department of Public Safety will attend.

    Federal staffers from the Drug Enforcement Administration, the U.S. Marshal’s office, Homeland Security and other agencies will be represented, too.

    Officials will soon hire students for jobs as well as internships, said Mississippi College Career Services director Jim Miller.

    Hiring trends look good for criminal justice and Homeland Security graduates across the nation this year.

    President Donald Trump seeks to beefup manpower for Homeland Security and other law enforcement agencies as soon as possible, says MC criminal justice professor Godfrey Garner.

    MC’s criminal justice bachelor’s degree program was recently recognized by AffordableColleges.com as a best value for offering academic quality at affordable prices.

    Little Steps, Big Gains

    The American Heart Association encourages Mississippians to move more and get Healthy For Good™

    On April 5, countless Mississippians will take a step towards being Healthy For Good and walk to commemorate the American Heart Association’s National Walking Day.

    The Healthy For Good movement is designed to inspire Americans to live healthier lives and create lasting change. It focuses on the simple idea that making small changes today can create a difference for generations to come. So, join the movement and move more with us throughout the month of April!

    The Metro Jackson American Heart Association is also launching a statewide challenge called the 1 Million Step Challenge on National Walking Day.  Mississippi has a goal to walk 1 million steps on April 5 because thousands of Mississippians are affected by preventable disease likes heart disease. We are hoping this steps challenge will help Mississippians make physical activity a normal part of their lives.  

    An American Heart Association survey found 31% of Mississippians report that they have no regular physical activity in their lives. Walking has the lowest dropout rate of any exercise activity for those just starting to get active, so the steps challenge is one way to motivate more Mississippians to start exercising.  

    To participate in the 1 Million Steps Challenge, people will take pictures of their walks and/or pedometers, and post how many steps they took on American Heart Association’s Metro Jackson social media platforms – Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram. Updates and highlights will be posted all day using the hashtag #LaceUpMS.

    Moderate physical activity has many proven benefits for overall health, such as lowering blood pressure, increasing HDL, or “good”, cholesterol and controlling weight. All these changes help to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and stroke, the nation’s No. 1 and No. 5 killers.

    “In honor of National Walk Day, the American Heart Association is challenging our community to move more together by logging your steps on April 5,” said AHA volunteer Dr. Timothy Quinn of Quinn Healthcare. “Whether you join coworkers for a lunchbreak walk or take your kids for a neighborhood stroll, every step counts toward living a healthier life.”

    The American Heart Association will kick off a month-long campaign on National Walking Day, April 5, to encourage people to move more by increasing their physical activity. The campaign is broken down into weekly themes. Week one focuses on walking and the basic tools you need to get started. Walking is one of the safest, least expensive, and most sustainable forms of exercise. Weeks two and three focus on recreational sports and outdoor activities the whole family can do together, and week four focuses on mindful movement and reducing stress by doing activities such as yoga, Pilates and tai chi.

    The American Heart Association recommends that adults participate in at least 150 minutes of moderate intensity aerobic activity or 75 minutes of vigorous intensity aerobic activity or a combination of both each week. Kids should get at least 60 minutes of physical activity every day.

    Be part of the movement and register for your free toolkit at www.heart.org/movemoretoolkit. For more information about walking and living a healthy lifestyle, visit www.heart.org/movemore.

    The USDA’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) offers financial assistance to farmers nationwide, but many farmers are either unaware of FSA’s programs or encounter difficulties when trying to apply for assistance.  The National Center for Appropriate Technology (NCAT) is partnering with FSA offices across the state of Mississippi to improve producers’ farm finance literacy, to educate producers about the variety of assistance programs available to them, and to help interested farmers complete applications for this assistance.

    NCAT will be hosting a free one-day workshop on April 6th, 2017, at the Central Mississippi Research & Extension Center, 1320 Seven Springs Road, Raymond, MS 39154.  The workshop will include information on the basics of farm financial planning, marketing strategies, soil health for profitability, and how FSA loan and assistance programs can assist Mississippi farmers in becoming more profitable.  NCAT employees will be able to provide one-on-one assistance as needed to help participants fill out FSA applications for loan and assistance programs.

    These topics will be beneficial for beginning farmers and experienced farmers alike.  NCAT has developed numerous management, farm, and financial planning tools that will be used in this educational program.

    NCAT will be hosting workshops like this one around Mississippi throughout the coming year.  Though the event is free, registration is required.  If attending, please register by going to https://www.ncat.org/events.  Lunch will be provided.  Veterans, limited resource farmers, beginning farmers, women, and minority farmers are especially invited to attend these workshops.

    For more information about this event, please contact NCAT Gulf States Regional Director Rockiell Woods at 866-643-2767, or 662-347-9175, or e-mail him at rockw@ncat.org.

    Between the rapidly growing Mississippi craft beer culture and the recent arrival of the three-month Dinos exhibit, this year’s 10th Annual Jackson Zoo Brew will truly be bigger than ever. Thanks to Capital City Beverages, BankPlus, Bradley Arent Boult Cummings, and Lady Luck Casino, this age 21 and up event will feature a homebrew competition and over 80 different craft beers this Friday, April 7, 2017, from 6-9 pm.

    Guests will receive a Zoo Brew souvenir tasting cup, unlimited tasting of craft beer and free food from 10 local restaurants while supplies last. VIP ticket holders not only receive early entry but will also enjoy encounters from the Jackson Zoo Ambassador Animals, and help judge the Home Brew Competition with Raise Your Pints. Lucky Town Brewery will also showcase the “Get T-Rex’d” IPA created especially for the Jackson Zoo. Cathead Distillery and Fondren Public will be serving specialty cocktails, and local restaurant favorites like Fenian’s, Martin’s, Hal & Mal’s, The Iron Horse Grill, The Pig & Pint, The Manship, Sal & Phil’s, The Bulldog, Johnny T’s, and Billy’s Original Foods will be sampling signature dishes with help from US Foods and Pepsi/Brown Bottling. The Annual Tyson Wing Eating Competition and Cook-off will take place at the Gertrude C Ford Wildlife Adventures Theater, culminating in 1st, 2nd and 3rd place trophies, as well as a decision for Best Wings.

    The zoo animals will remain on exhibit until dusk, and then beer aficionados can spend the rest of the evening with the lifelike animatronic dinosaurs from Billings Productions. (Jackson Zoo Dinos 2017 is sponsored by Regions, M3A Architecture, United HealthCare Community Plan of MS, Puckett Machinery, and Martinson’s Garden Works of Ridgeland.) Ambience will be provided by Davaine Lighting, as well as live music from AJC & the Envelope Pushers, DJ Young Venom, Chris Gill and Joe Carroll. This year’s signature art was again created by the award-winning Mad Genius, with the posters and flyers courtesy of Alliance Printing. Radio sponsors Y101 and MIX 98.7 will also be on site. Guests can also help raise additional funds for the zoo by entering a raffle featuring prizes from Lady Luck Hotel & Casino, Buffalo Peak Outfitters and Capital City Beverages.

    Along with Zoo Party in September, Zoo Brew is one of the Jackson Zoological Society’s two annual adults-only fundraisers. From a small beginning in 2007 of 80 attendants, to last year’s total of around 1,500, the event has grown along with the craft beer industry. At least 14 craft breweries operate in Mississippi, and according to the Brewers Association in Boulder, Colorado, the craft beer industry is now worth $56 billion nationally.

    “The first couple of years, it was just a few samples for a local craft beer audience, barely breaking even,” says Executive Director Beth Poff. “But Zoo Brew has become THE fundraising party for the Jackson Zoological Society, raising more than $50,000. With the support of Raise Your Pints and the expanding craft beer community, it is becoming a signature beer event for the State of Mississippi.”

    Tickets can be purchased in advance online at jacksonzoo.org. General Admission is $40 per person, $45 day of event, VIP tickets are $70 each, and Designated Driver tickets can be purchased for $20. Parking is free, and IDs will be checked at the gate. All proceeds will apply to the General Fund of the Jackson Zoological Society.

    April 8th – Main Street Clinton’s Caterpillar Parade in Olde Towne Clinton!

    Clintonians are encouraged to welcome spring to the community in Olde Towne on Saturday, April 8, as the famed community caterpillar Calliope makes her annual visit to the brick streets. Business owners and residents are busy decorating with colorful caterpillars to make Calliope feel right at home. Families are invited to join the parade that Saturday, which will be led by the 50′ caterpillar and her troupe of
    children and adults. Children and parents are invited to gather at Lions Club Park with decorated strollers, bikes, wagons, etc. for the parade. At 9:30 a.m., emcee and host James Anderson will start the event with the annual reading of Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The parade will begin at the conclusion of the reading (approx. 10 a.m.) and is led by Calliope. The finale of the parade includes former Caterpillar
    Queens, the Butterfly Court, and the 2017 Caterpillar Queen riding on her chariot.
    Each child will receive balloons or noisemakers as they line up to follow Calliope the Caterpillar through the brick streets of Olde Towne. The parade ends at the intersection of Jefferson Street and West Leake Street, where the 2017 Caterpillar Queen will be crowned by the outgoing 2016 Queen Marilyn Hetrick. Following the parade, children are invited to enjoy the annual magic show, face painting and children’s activities while parents stroll through the Spring Into Green craft market. The first 250 children will receive a free butterfly chrysalis at the
    conclusion of the parade. Again this year, the Caterpillar Queen invites any young girl to join her Butterfly Court. The Butterfly Court will march together in the parade wearing wings and sashes and will be recognized alongside the Queen at the crowning ceremony. Butterflies will be asked to wear their best butterfly costume and must register with the Main Street office by March 31. Free butterfly wings will be given away to the first twenty girls who sign up to serve in the Queen’s Court. Applications for the Queen’s Court can be found on the Main Street Clinton web site. After the parade, participants are invited to join the newly crowned Queen at Meme’s Brick Street Bakery for a Butterfly
    Brunch. The brunch costs $12 to attend, and reservations are required.

    Another parade highlight is the group of decorated golf cart floats. Clinton businesses, organizations or clubs are invited to enter a golf cart float in the parade. Organizers say it offers a fun opportunity for groups to show their community spirit by decorating their golf cart for spring and handing out goodies to the families gathered for the parade. Businesses interested in entering a golf cart float should contact the Main Street Clinton office for an application or download one from the Main Street website. There is no fee to participate. In addition to the Caterpillar Parade, Olde Towne will host the first craft market of the year – the Spring Into Green Market. Held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m., the market will take place on Jefferson Street and highlight unique handcrafted items and local food trucks. Shoppers have the opportunity to go “green” with their purchases at the market, buying from responsibly sourced or give back businesses. These select booths will be indicated by “Purchase with a Purpose” signage.

    C Spire dials up C3 coding challenge for high school students

    Tech firm hopes to spur more interest in IT-related jobs and careers in Mississippi

     

    Pepper the humanoid robot will make Magnolia State debut at the event

    C Spire, a Mississippi-based telecommunications and technology services company, is hosting a coding challenge next month to encourage high school students in the Magnolia state to pursue a degree and career in information technology.

    The day-long C3 event on Thursday, April 13 at the company’s Ridgeland headquarters will feature teams of up to four students each from 15 public and private high schools in Hinds, Madison and Rankin counties competing for up to $24,000 in cash scholarships and other tech-related prizes.

    Students and an adviser from each school will learn how to use basic elements of Java coding and artificial intelligence concepts to control an object throughout the day-long competition.  C Spire will assign employees with IT backgrounds and experience to help each team.

    “We’re planning a fun, entertaining and educational day for all of the students who participate in the program,” said Carla Lewis, chief information officer for C Spire.  “Hopefully, we can inspire and encourage these students to seriously consider IT as a career path.”  

    Workers with a background in computer science are in high demand and short supply in Mississippi.  Employers currently have over 1,200 unfilled job openings due to the serious shortage of trained, qualified IT workers, Lewis said.  The average salary for qualified IT workers is nearly $69,000 a year, almost double the statewide average.

    Lewis said the C3 program can serve as an important first step to increase interest in computer science.  In 2016, only 16 students in the state took the AP computer science exam and only three schools statewide offered the AP computer science course in 2015-16, according to Code.org, a computer science education advocacy group.

    With programs like C3, Hour of Code, Kids Code Mississippi, outreach efforts by Mississippi colleges and universities and non-profit programs like the Basecamp Coding Academy in Water Valley, Lewis said there is a growing sense of value and appreciation for educating and preparing more students for job opportunities in the technology arena.

    “We live in a software-defined world where code directly impacts just about every aspect of our life,” Lewis said.  “Computer science drives innovation and creates jobs throughout our economy, but we need to do more to encourage schools to offer courses and for young people to pursue IT as a viable career.”

    For more information about C3, send an email to c3info@cspire.com.

    The Credit Unions of Mississippi are treating the first 2,500 guests to a free day at the zoo on April 15 to celebrate Youth Savings Month.  

    April is National Credit Union Youth Month. The Credit Unions of Mississippi want to celebrate by giving back to the community and offering free admission to the zoo, as well as offering financial literacy for attending youth. There will also be activities and games, such as an inflatable obstacle course, bounce house, face painting and more. There will be a scavenger hunt for guests to visit each credit union booth and one lucky winner will receive a $250 cash prize.

    This year’s Youth Month theme is “Give a Hoot About Saving” and features fun, educational materials for children to learn about saving. AVP of Marketing at Members Exchange Credit Union, Angela Mitchell said she is excited for this year’s Youth Month theme and believes this will help deliver the message to children in a creative way.

    “The zoo provides the perfect venue for families to enjoy a fun day in nature, while also learning about financial literacy,” Mitchell said. “And the best part is it’s a free event for the community!”

    This is the third year in a row that Mississippi Credit Unions have hosted CU at the Zoo. Last year’s attendance was a little over 2,500 and we’re hoping to meet or exceed this goal for 2017.

    The Jackson Zoo’s Special Events Manager, Toni Francis said she believes this is a great opportunity for guests to visit the zoo.

    “We are excited to welcome back the Credit Unions of Mississippi for a 3rd Annual CU at the Zoo event. The zoo is a wonderful educational venue and we are glad they have chosen to host their event here and combine their efforts with ours to educate Mississippi’s youth,” Francis said.  

    The zoo will be open regular admission hours 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. The first 2,500 guests to arrive will be admitted at no charge. Credit Unions will be on-site with activities from 9 a.m.- 2 p.m.

    There are 10 credit unions participating in this event: Jackson Area Federal Credit Union, Statewide Federal Credit Union, Members Exchange Credit Union, Hope Credit Union, Mississippi Federal Credit Union, Magnolia Federal Credit Union, Eagle Express Federal Credit Union, Rivertrust Federal Credit Union, Mutual Credit Union and CommFirst Federal Credit Union.

    Hinds Community College’s John Bell Williams Airport in Raymond will host the 26th annual Mississippi Afterburner Jet Rally, which is expected to draw more than 85 pilots of radio-controlled model jets, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day April 20-22.

     

    The three-day event, open to the public at $5 per vehicle, will feature pilots from across the nation. Spectators can purchase a variety of food on site, including hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, chicken plates and soft drinks.

     

    The rally is the college’s major scholarship fund-raiser for the aviation department housed at John Bell Williams Airport. The programs include aviation maintenance technology, aviation technology, commercial flight school and the unmanned aerial systems school. Students can receive a two-year associate degree in any of the programs, allowing them to work in the aviation industry. The four programs enroll approximately 75 students.

     

    The scholarship fund fueled by the rally, hosted at John Bell Williams Airport, generates approximately $5,000 to $7,000 in student scholarships. The funds generated by this event over the last 13 years have allowed for the creation and endowment of a scholarship by the Mississippi Afterburners.

     

    Pilots at the rally will perform maneuvers with their turbine-jet propelled radio-controlled models many of which are museum scale models flying at speeds of up to 200 miles an hour, Montgomery said.

     

    As part of the fly-in, awards will be given for Top Gun, Pilot’s Choice, People’s Choice, Best Military Aircraft pre-1960, Best Military Aircraft post-1960, Best Sport Jet and Best Sport Performance, he said.

     

    The physical address for the airport is at 4100 Airport Road, Bolton, MS 39041. It’s just off Clinton/Raymond Road almost halfway between Clinton and Raymond.

Many of these heirloom plants have come from project and demonstration gardens located throughout the metro Jackson area. Shoppers will find a wide variety of plants at unbeatable prices!

    Master Gardeners are a volunteer branch of the Mississippi State University Extension Service that advises and educates the public on gardening and horticulture issues. Members of the Metro Master Gardeners will be on hand at the plant sale to answer gardening questions.

    After finalizing their plant purchases, shoppers are invited to enjoy a leisurely stroll through Mynelle Gardens.

    Proceeds from the plant sale go to support gardening projects located at the Doctor’s Herb Garden at the Agriculture &amp; Forestry Museum, the Oaks Home on Jefferson Street, Greenwood Cemetery, the Jackson Zoo, and various demonstration, educational and scholarship projects (including a Hinds Community College scholarship) in the metro Jackson area.

    Hinds Community College’s John Bell Williams Airport in Raymond will host the 26th annual Mississippi Afterburner Jet Rally, which is expected to draw more than 85 pilots of radio-controlled model jets, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. each day April 20-22.

     

    The three-day event, open to the public at $5 per vehicle, will feature pilots from across the nation. Spectators can purchase a variety of food on site, including hamburgers, hot dogs, French fries, chicken plates and soft drinks.

     

    The rally is the college’s major scholarship fund-raiser for the aviation department housed at John Bell Williams Airport. The programs include aviation maintenance technology, aviation technology, commercial flight school and the unmanned aerial systems school. Students can receive a two-year associate degree in any of the programs, allowing them to work in the aviation industry. The four programs enroll approximately 75 students.

     

    The scholarship fund fueled by the rally, hosted at John Bell Williams Airport, generates approximately $5,000 to $7,000 in student scholarships. The funds generated by this event over the last 13 years have allowed for the creation and endowment of a scholarship by the Mississippi Afterburners.

     

    Pilots at the rally will perform maneuvers with their turbine-jet propelled radio-controlled models many of which are museum scale models flying at speeds of up to 200 miles an hour, Montgomery said.

     

    As part of the fly-in, awards will be given for Top Gun, Pilot’s Choice, People’s Choice, Best Military Aircraft pre-1960, Best Military Aircraft post-1960, Best Sport Jet and Best Sport Performance, he said.

     

    The physical address for the airport is at 4100 Airport Road, Bolton, MS 39041. It’s just off Clinton/Raymond Road almost halfway between Clinton and Raymond.

    Friends of Raymond Library program April 25:  Al Arnold, author of “Robert E. Lee’s Orderly: A Modern Black Man’s Confederate Journey,”  will speak Tuesday, April 25, 6:30 pm, Raymond City Hall Board Room (on the Square), free admission.  For more information,  snbridges@gmail.com, 601-857-0524.

     

    About the author

    In 2008, Mississippian Al Arnold learned that his Great-Great Grandfather Turner Hall, Jr., a slave, was owned by Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest and served during the Civil War as an orderly for General Robert E. Lee.

    In his book about his ancestor’s long and extraordinary life, “Robert E. Lee’s Orderly: A Modern Black Man’s Confederate Journey,” Arnold shares insights he gained during his research. He says the role of slaves in the Civil War is an important and overlooked focal point that African Americans should explore as they find their own connections to this part of America’s history.

    Arnold is a member of the Jackson, Mississippi Civil War Round Table and an alumnus of Jackson State University and the University of Mississippi Medical Center School of Physical Therapy. He resides in Madison with his wife Tamiko and their three children.

    The Methodist Children’s Homes (MCH) will host the 4th Annual Day of Hope on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at 10 am.

    MCH welcomes members of the community to come and tour the campus, meet the children, and learn more about bringing hope to hurting children in Mississippi.

    Kate Williams, Chief Development Officer at MCH stated, “I look forward to the Day of Hope each year. It is a day that we share with the members of our community the difference and hope they are making in the lives of our children.”

    Children, from across Mississippi, come to MCH hurt, broken, and hopeless.  By the time they leave MCH’s care, they are on the road to healing; but most importantly, they have hope of a brighter future.

    “Our goal at MCH is for more children to feel a sense of security, hope, and family throughout the time that they spend with us.” Williams stated.  “It is appalling the number of children in Mississippi who are victims of abuse and neglect.  MCH is their refuge, and for most of the children who come here, it is the first time they ever feel loved.”

    The Day of Hope will be held on the campus of the Methodist Children’s Homes located at 805 North Flag Chapel Road, Jackson, MS 39209.  The event will begin at 10:00 am with campus tours, a fish fry, a program and silent auction. This event is free, and is open to anyone who wishes to learn more about providing hope to a hurting child.  

    “Thank you for supporting my home, and the Day of Hope. Because of you, I am finally free from my abuser and changing my life one day at a time,” a resident at MCH said.  “You are my hero!”

    For more information about the Day of Hope, please contact Mandy McCullough at 601-853-5000 ext. 1255 or mmccullough@mchms.org.
