Union Summer League registration is underway
U.S. Rep. Trent Kelly is no stranger to the City of Union, and Monday, he returned home to inspire students in the Union Public School District to go after their dreams. Kelly graduated from UHS in 1984 and attended East Central Community College before graduating from Ole Miss.
It almost seems that each week this summer there has been a ribbon cutting for a new or expanded business here in Newton County. In just the past month, the county has welcomed the Hunky Dory yoga studio in Newton, the Hickory Pick’N flea market and antique shop, which had a soft opening in April and had its grand opening on Sept.
If the last month has shown us anything, it’s that we need to be prepared.
The people of Newton County are once again showing love for their neighbors. Locals are opening up their hearts and wallets to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, which caused devastation all along the Texas Gulf Coast.
This past week, I had the opportunity to visit with Byron Artis, who heads the new Hope Mission in Newton.
Artis is not a newcomer to our area. He runs the House of Hope in Union and also runs missions in Louisville and Meridian.
