An all-morning Easter celebration on April 12 at Gretna Elementary School attracts a crowd of excited children. They came to hunt for candy-filled eggs and meet the Easter Bunny—who appeared on the scene midway through the morning. The event also included a grilled lunch and festive refreshments for everyone. Gretna City Commissioner Helen Franks organized the event with the support of local individuals and organizations. See more photos on page A2.

Progress on the Quincy Bypass, which will connect State Road 12 to U.S. Highway 90 near Ralph Strong Road and the Capital Regional Medical Center Gadsden Campus, is about 30 percent complete and work on the project is moving at a steady pace, according to Anthony Manos, project engineer.


“Much of the clearing is done about a third of the drainage is complete and about 30 percent of the earthwork has been done,” Manos said.
