Madison County Economic Development Authority Executive Director Joey Deason spoke to the Canton Rotary Club last Thursday. MCEDA’s aim is to make more land available for development because that’s what's necessary with highway, water, electric, sewer and rail access, he said. “We don’t even get to play in a lot of the opportunities that the state has because we don’t have land available,” he said. Madison County is strategically located between Dallas and Atlanta and can expect to be in play for distribution facilities, in particular, to relieve stresses for companies like Amazon in those regional hubs. He is greeted by Rotary Club member Lloyd Spivey. Journal Publisher and Canton Rotary Club member Jim Prince arranged the program.

Madison County has a lot of good qualities, but one thing it lacks is land ready and available for industrial development, the new head of economic development told the Canton Rotary Club last week.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 7: 20-24
    The context of this passage is the Lord turning the Nile River to blood, the first plague against Pharaoh and Egypt. Moses delivered a message to Pharaoh from the Lord commanding him to let Israel go that they may worship the Lord. When Pharaoh refuses, the Lord sends this plague of blood that results in no drinking water and the death of the fish Egypt greatly depended upon.
  • DUNCAN/Reaping the whirlwind
    Please turn in your Bibles to Genesis 4:1-16 as we continue our study in the foundations of the faith. This chapter reveals to us the consequences of sin and the reality of death. Now the curses of God upon Adam's disobedience come to rest in his own family life. But even in this poignant story of sin and misery, we have a picture of the patience of God. This passage moves forward in five scenes, so let’s look at them.
  • EDITORIAL/Bungling at the FBI
    A policeman’s lot is not a happy one, and these are miserable days for the FBI, stung by accusations that it bungled high-profile political investigations, and just when the legacy media was ready for an all-out assault on Donald Trump and guns for conducting the massacre of children in Florida the FBI is revealed to have ignored a tip that would likely have prevented unspeakable tragedy.
  • It turns out that, with apologies to Nancy Pelosi, Republicans really did have to pass the tax bill so people could find out what’s in it.
  • BUCHANAN/Russian trolls act of war?
    According to the indictment by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Russian trolls, operating out of St. Petersburg, took American identities on social media and became players in our 2016 election.
  • Candidate Donald Trump may have promised to extricate us from Middle East wars, once ISIS and al-Qaida were routed, yet events and people seem to be conspiring to keep us endlessly enmeshed.
  • LOWRY/Not #MeToo
    Kirsten Gillibrand, dubbed the #MeToo senator by “60 Minutes,” wants President Donald Trump’s scalp.
  • EDITORIALS/Republicans in flight
    Not so long ago the conventional capital wisdom, retailed wholesale by the pundit class, held that all that was necessary to replace the Republican Congress with a large, left-thinking Democratic Congress bent on revenge, was to count the votes. The liberal landslide was on the way.
  • GETTING THE MESSAGE/Exodus 7:8-13
    Our passage this week is a confrontation between Moses and Pharaoh. God has sent Moses and Aaron back to Pharaoh to command him to let the people of Israel go. The Lord knows that Pharaoh is going to ask for a miraculous sign to corroborate the authority and power behind this demand. So he instructs Moses: “When Pharaoh says prove yourselves…say to Aaron, “Take your staff and cast it down before Pharaoh,
  • DUNCAN/The Blessings of the Curses: The Serpent
    Turn in your copy of Scripture to Genesis 3:14-15. Over the last two weeks we looked at the account of Adam's fall, and we saw several things about the nature of sin. Now we come to the beginning of the passage that gives us the Lord's sentence against the serpent, the woman, and the man. Ironically, the curses of Genesis 3:14-19
