Clinton needs to realize they are in a prime location to get a lot of business. Could you imagine if we let more diverse businesses and restaurants in, people from Terry, Raymond, Utica, Bolton and Edwards would prefer much more to come to Clinton instead of Madison, Ridgeland or Flowood. We need different restaurants and shopping to make this happened. Why was all that land cleared on the frontage road next to HomeDepot and nothing done with it?

I remember when the most exciting thing happening in Clinton on Saturday was going to Pevey's Fairway and the Johnson Milling Company for cow feed. In those days, I would climb up and go into the milling barn and the older negro men would put me on scale and weigh me. I was five and weighed 50 pounds then.
I can also remember a colored man coming through town on the brick streets in horse drawn waggon selling vegetables. This was the early - mid '60s.
It was a lovely place. The Rexall Drug Store, the library just a few doors down. And ... I mentioned going to Pevey's, as a boy, I and my sister would go in hopes of seeing the ten-toed negro woman. She had 10 on each feet. Does anyone remember Clinton back then?

Also there was Mrs. Stewart's house just round the corner from Reba Shearer's beauty parlor. She had a Monitor GE Refrigerator and a Kirby Vacuum from the 20s or 30.

Outside of town on the Tinnin Road, there was Camp Lubalu (sp?) negro Boy Scout Camp, Camp Kick-A-Poo for the whites and out a little farther, Prof. and Genvieve Lasistor's house. It seems like only yesterday.

Clinton will never grow as long as old families run the town. They don't want expansion and use their influence to keep it out.

Clinton is a thing of the past living in the past. We have NO ONE trying to improve the growth in the city. look at old town. Still in the 1940s. Man hired to promote City does not do his job....

Why has Clinton quit posting police reports? Is it because of the hugh in flux of crime?

Mayor Aultman is inept and the Clinton PD are incompetent! Clinton is dead.
