By far the longest item was the informative 7.a. Lowndes County Extension Office Presentation, at the Lownndes County Commission Work Session yesterday morning.
River Gauges, Beer and Wine, Reports, Extension Agent
The river gauges and the beer and wine license took not much longer than to read the agenda items.
Below are links to each LAKE video of each agenda item, with a few notes, followed by a LAKE video playlist. See also the agenda and board packet, received in response to a LAKE open records request and on the LAKE website.

Afterwards, Commissioner Mark Wisenbaker wanted to know if there was any way to bring back the Ham and Eggs Show.
County Agent Joshua Dawson said “that would take some renovating; coming together.” He said the biggest issue had been home freezers, but as he had mentioned, there are ways to do that.
