Citizen concerns

City council faces questions on code enforcement, MPD budgeting

By Brett Voss & Simone Wichers-Voss

The roads through a city, the public spaces, City Hall and a community center are all the first impression people have of a town. If these facilities look nice, people are inclined to believe that the town’s residents are proud of their town and are committed to making it work.

For a small town like Meridian, it is a constant struggle to find funds to keep the town up to par.

Dynamic duet

By Nathan Diebenow

The giggles are real. The dynamic duo of Cooper Wade and Chad Prather defended country music, southern culture, and western civilization from the forces of evil snowflakes (for at least another day) on their Saturday, June 10, stop in Clifton on their Live, Laugh, Love Tour.

The show’s atmosphere at the Market at the Mill’s newly christened outdoor venue felt not unlike a family reunion in which the mischievous uncles were in charge of the evening’s entertainment.
