Two words put together are very powerful. They are â€śthank you.â€ť It only takes an instance to say thank you, which suddenly becomes an action as well as a gift to someone else as our expression of our very own thanks. You are the person who gives away the thanks. Now put two other words together, and you have the one word: Thanksgiving.

They say parting is such sweet sorrow.Â
Not so, thereâ€™s nothing sweet about it. Itâ€™s an anxiety ridden, heart palpitation-producing, soul-wrenching experience that has turned my life upside down.Â

OXFORD â€” Republican U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee says he has embraced his partyâ€™s agenda and wants north Mississippi voters to send him back to Congress so he can keep working on it.
Democrat challenger Brad Morris says Nunneleeâ€™s â€śembraceâ€ť is why 1st Congressional District voters should vote him out of office.

The Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors will hear a presentation on a possible hospital financial analysis from consultant Barry Plunkett during its 9 a.m. Monday meeting at the county courthouse.
Plunkettâ€™s presentation is scheduled for 9:50 a.m., but the flow of county business could push the issue earlier or later in the day.

Oktibbeha County School District Conservator Jayne Sargent plans to revisit the districtâ€™s goals and strategic plan in a future meeting, but that item does not appear on an agenda for the OCSDâ€™s noon Monday at the districtâ€™s offices.
As the final time ticked off the clock, tackles were not the only thing the Mississippi State football team missed on.
The No. 17 (Associated Press) Bulldogs failed to improve their record to 8-1 and No. 16 (Associated Press) Texas A&M took a 38-13 victory Saturday at Davis Wade Stadium in a rematch of the 2000 Independence Bowl.
It was almost like watching a video game on Saturday.
If only it had been, the Mississippi State Bulldogs could have maybe found a way to pull the plug on it.
The numbers put up by quarterback Johnny Manziel and the Texas A&M Aggies were crazy.
Texas A&M had 386 yards of total offense by halftime and ended up with 693 to soundly defeat Mississippi State 38-13 at Davis Wade Stadium.
The Mississippi State Bulldogs were not able to produce on either side of the football on Saturday and ultimately the game went the way of Texas A&M.
Comparing the two sides, it was clear that it was as MSU coach Dan Mullen stated â€śas bad a performance offensively as weâ€™ve had here in quite a long time.â€ť
There were quite a few eyes looking upon the progress of Mississippi State and Texas A&M on Saturday.
