Waller won’t ‘go’ to DNC in August

By JOSH TROY THE PRESS REGISTER,

 

Jen Waller was all set to go represent Coahoma County and the Mississippi Delta as a delegate at the 2020 Democratic National Convention, and while she will still represent us, she won’t go.

The convention is Aug. 17 to 20 at the Fiserv Forum in Milwaukee, Wisc., but it will be meeting virtually due to the coronavirus pandemic. It is unlikely Waller, a Clarksdale native and currently the director of the Coahoma County Higher Education Center, will be able to attend the convention, but she will be able to cast her votes as a delegate and hopes to use her experience to make a difference.

FLOYD INGRAM: Are you ready for Good News?

By FLOYD INGRAM / THE PRESS REGISTER,

 

This will be the first Easter in more than 30 years that I have not been in church on Sunday.

I’ve said before in this space that I started going to church nine-months before I was born. Yes, there was a rebellious stage in my early 20s, but “raise up a child in the way he should go” . . . well, you know the rest.
