JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

Saturday was "Small Business Saturday," a time when shoppers were encouraged to support local businesses. Among those who appreciated the emphasis on buying at locally-owned and operated stores was the Landrum family, who owns Landrum's Homestead and Village south of Laurel. 

On Saturday, shoppers were invited to visit the annual, Christmas at the Village. Each year, the Landrum's host the event to give folks an idea of what the holidays would have looked like in the Pine Bellt more than a century ago.

The event featured wagon rides, Civil War re-enactors and live music. 

"Small business, that's where it's at," said Susan Landrum of Landrum's Homestead and Village. "Your big box stores are everywhere, but small business is special, it's unique, it's one-of-a-kind, and we encourage that," Landrum said.

This was the 29th year for the Landrum's Christmas at the Village.

    Markus Kittrell is well aware when people speak of Wayne County football, the assumption is the conversation will be of the public school War Eagles. Kitrell and his teammates would like to change that a bit this fall. “When you say Wayne County, everybody knows Wayne County High School, but it’s time for us to put it out there about Wayne Academy, where everybody will know about us,” said Kittrell, a 6-foot-4, 300-pound, two-way lineman for the Jaguars.
