Sports Editor Eric Moore covered the high school basketball tournaments and began working on the MDR's Spring Sports and Baseball/Softball coverage.

Editor Ronna Pennington reported on city council and quorum court. The council meeting was less than 10 minutes in length and the council accepted the low bids on a demolition project. Mayor Brenda Weldon said that the cost of changing signs will only be about $800 as opposed to $3,000 as previously suggested if the council honors a request to change the name of a section of an existing street. Quorum Court JPs told a representative from the Sheriff's office that the sheriff must attend an agenda meeting in order to present his request for an additional employee. JP James Cranford stressed that the sheriff needed to follow the quorum court's procedures.
