Today's viewpoint: Support Habitat for Humanity

Joe Sciortino Joe Sciortino

There is an organization in our community that helps out those in need a great deal. That organization is the Hattiesburg Area Habitat for Humanity and they could use your help. They are holding an event they call the Draw Down Show Down to raise funds to help more people in our area.

The draw down will be held in conjunction with their Family Festival this coming Saturday August 22nd at the Walthall Center from 10am to 10pm. Tickets for the Draw Down are only $20 for one chance or $100 for six chances and the prizes are great. You could win $10,000 in cash or your choice of a Polaris side-by-side ATV or a new Kia vehicle, but you need to purchase a ticket. For more information on the event this Saturday and to purchase tickets to win up to $10,000 from Habitat go to www.hattiesburghabitat.org  or call 601-582-HOME.  I bought my ticket online today and it very easy to do. Help the team that helps so many in our community – Habitat for Humanity.

This is today’s viewpoint.

    On a wet Saturday night in September 2016, Xavier Thigpen feasted. A season-high four tackles-for-loss against Troy, the most by a Golden Eagle since Cleveland Brown Jamie Collins recorded the same in 2012. Thigpen has continued his tenacious play through three games of 2017: Nine tackles, one sack and a fumble recovery to the end zone so far. This season will be the last ride for "PawPaw" Thigpen.
