Taylor, who is
retired from work-

bottom floor of the barn which he

JACKSON — Republicans in
Mississippi’s intensifying U.S.
Senate race are slamming Dem-
ocrat Mike Espy’s lobbying work
for an African leader who was later
deposed and charged with crimes
against humanity.
Republican Sen. Cindy Hyde-

lied about his work for Ivory Coast ex-President
Laurent Gbagbo, who is on trial at the Interna-
tional Criminal Court. Fox News reported on Es-
py’s lobbying work Thursday.
Federal registration papers show Espy was

which on Tuesday will hold its
58th annual Country Store Bake
Sale at the Stephen D. Lee Home in Columbus.
It’s a highlight in the community’s countdown
to Thanksgiving, a tradition that started after a
1959 fire destroyed Lee High School’s original
location on Seventh Street. The Lee Home – once
the school’s home economics department – was
severely damaged, but immediate efforts by con-
cerned citizens saved the structure from demoli-
tion. They were given permission to restore the
former home of CSA Gen. Stephen D. Lee, first
president of the Agricultural and Mechanical
College of Mississippi – now Mississippi State
University. Over the years, the bake sale has
generated thousands to preserve and enhance the
home, which now serves as the site of weddings,
receptions, meetings and educational events. The
Lee Home serves as a reminder of how a commu-
nity, working together, can turn a devastating loss
into something positive for the community.

this week of Thanksgiving, but all year through.
