Governor: Prison is the start of area’s rebuilding

Natchez Democrat

NATCHEZ — A private prison on U.S. 84 is the first big project to come to Adams County in years, but it won’t be the last, the governor says…

Barbour, who supported efforts to bring the facility to Adams County, was enthusiastic about the $105 million project.

The governor’s hometown of Yazoo City plays host to three federal prisons, and Barbour said a county couldn’t ask for a better industry.

“There’s no pollution and they don’t have recessions,” Barbour said with a laugh…

Grennell said he completely agrees with Barbour’s assessment of the area’s future.

“We’ve got several projects we’re working on,” Grennell said.

“This represents a step in the right direction on the road to industrial recovery in Adams County,” West said. “This and other things happening will fuel the economy for southwest Mississippi.”

    I came across this accidentally and loved it – it’s hilarious! You have no idea how appropriate some of those quotes are. I’m a Natchez liberal fighting an uphill battle here, but we do the best we can. Actually, we didn’t fight the prison, because it’s so much better than our “leaders” other brilliant ideas, like casinos and condos along our historic riverfront.
