The Turtle Saver Biography of Laurie Parker
by Rebecca Easley (SHS) In Bruce, Mississippi on July 24, 1963 Laurie Parker, acclaimed Mississippi writer and artist, and her fraternal twin sister Nancy were born to Sam and Ruth Parker. One year later the family, including her eleven-year-old brother Tommy and her three-year-old sister Lynn, moved to Starkville , where they all still live.
As soon as she could write, she began delighting those around her with her charming rhyming narratives. As Laurie Parker says, "My father was a high school basketball coach. So, I was aware early on of Mississippi geography and towns. . . . I have always loved to write in rhyming narratives"(telephone interview). It was almost instinctive for her to write Everywhere in Mississippi and All Over Alabama
Starkville High School was one of the high points in life for Parker. In reference to her experience at Starkville High School she stated, "I loved it. I was very happy"(telephone interview ). In high school she was acknowledged in various ways. Her many achievements include valedictorian of the graduating class of 1981, Ms. Starkville High School, Senior of Distinction, a straight "A" student, Josephine Jacket and Co-editor of the High Jacket, and an active member of the annual staff. In addition, she was given an honorary cheerleader award at the end of each year for her school spirit and the "bust-um" signs she made each week. She was also voted Most Spirited by her peers for helping her class win the spirit stick four years in a row. She was a National Merit Semifinalist and had a cumulative average of 30 on the ACT.

Mississippi Trivia
    1. The event which led to the creation of the TEDDY BEAR occurred near Onward, in 1901, when President Theodore Roosevelt, acting upon the suggestion of some friends, visited the state on a hunt for wild game. A bear was located by a member of the hunting party and was held for the President's pleasure. The bear was exhausted and possibly lame, some claim it was a mere cub. In any case, Roosevelt refused to shoot the helpless bear because he found it unsporting. News of the President's refusal to shoot the bear spread far and wide. Soon after, Morris Michtom, a New York merchant, made toy history when he created a stuffed toy bear and labeled it "TEDDY'S BEAR." Mr. Michtom placed the bear in his candy store to draw attention. His success was so great that it led to the formation of the Ideal Toy Corporation in 1903. The TEDDY BEAR remains today a favorite toy for children everywhere. 2. The University of Mississippi Blues Archive in Oxford contains the world's largest collection of Blues music. 3. The world's first round trip transoceanic flight was performed in 1928 by H.T. Merrill, from Iuka. The flight to England was made in a plane loaded with ping pong balls.

MGA Newsletter - FALL 1998
Mississippi Geographic Alliance Newsletter
New Director of MGA, KJMA Leaves Greetings. I am Dr. Taylor E. Mack, and since September 1, I have been the new coordinator of the Mississippi Geographic Alliance. I'm an assistant professor of Geography at Mississippi State University. I have also taught at Central Missouri State University as a visiting professor, and at Louisiana State University while I worked toward my Ph.D. My research is focused on the historical geography of Central America's Caribbean coast, including economic, cultural, population, and physical geography, as well as the impact of introduced agricultural products, plantation agriculture, and tourism.
I am taking over the reins from Dr. Klaus J. Meyer-Arendt (KJMA), who is the new chair of the Department of Geosciences, University of West Florida, in Pensacola. Dr. Meyer-Arendt's research focused on coastal environments, and Pensacola is a near ideal location for him to continue that research. He also believed whole-heartedly in the mission of the MGA, and to make the transition to a new director as smooth as possible, Dr. Meyer-Arendt invited me to Starkville to participate in both the Basic and Advanced Summer Geography Institutes.
I am originally from the suburban Milwaukee area. I spent 4 1/2 years in the US Army, and I received degrees in geography from the University of Kansas (BA and MA), and Louisiana State University (PhD). This summer I have met a large number of the MGA's Teacher Consultants, and their enthusiasm for teaching and geography has been a great experiene. This fall I will incorporate into my university courses some of the lesson plans I learned this summer. I will be attending the upcoming MCSS/MGA Conference in Long Beach, on October 22-24, so hopefully I can meet more of you at that time.

First Battle of Big Black River
17 May 1863 Big Black River On May 16, 1863, the Union Army under the commmand of Ulyses S. Grant fought the largest and most significant battle of the Vicksburg Campaign. The Union forces were victorius at the battle of Champion's Hill. As a result of this battle, Confederate troops were retreating west in the direction of Vicksburg. In the course of this retreat, they came upon the Big Black River. The Big Black River was located twelve miles east of Vicksburg and ten miles west of the Champion's Hill battlefield. Upon reaching the Big Black River on the evening of 16 May 1863, Lt. General John C. Pemberton made the decision to defend a bridgehead on the east bank of the river. Unbeknownst to Pemberton, Major General William W. Loring's "lost" Confederate division was marching in another direction, attempting to reunite with the forces of General Joseph E. Johnston. In the early morning of 17 May, Union General Eugene Carr's division, a part of Major General John A. McClernand's XII Corps, was in pursuit of Pemberton's retreating forces. About 5:30 a.m. Carr's division made contact with the Confederate position and halted to prepare for deployment. Carr understood that a frontal assault against such a fortified postion would cost the Union many casualties. Not only because of the actual defenses, but also because of the waist deep bayou and marshy ground in front of the Confederate position. He also realized that flanking the Rebel position would be impossible because of the river at each end.

Mississippi Information
Mississippi , one of the East South Central states of the United States, bordered on the north by Tennessee, on the east by Alabama, on the south by the Gulf of Mexico and Louisiana, and on the west by Louisiana and Arkansas. The Mississippi River forms almost all of the western boundary, and the Pearl River forms part of the southern boundary. Mississippi entered the Union on December 10, 1817, as the 20th state. Its economy was mainly agricultural until the middle third of the 20th century, when manufacturing became the dominant economic sector; service industries have become increasingly important in recent decades. Jefferson Davis, the president of the Confederacy during the American Civil War, resided here. The name of the state is taken from that of the Mississippi River, the name of which is derived from an Algonquian Indian term for “big river.” Mississippi is called the Magnolia State. Land And Resources Mississippi, with an area of 125,443 sq km (48,434 sq mi), is the 32d largest state in the U.S.; 5.5% of its land area is owned by the federal government. The state is roughly rectangular in shape, and its extreme dimensions are about 530 km (about 330 mi) from north to south and about 290 km (about 180 mi) from east to west. Elevations range from sea level, along the Gulf of Mexico, to 246 m (806 ft), atop Woodall Mountain in the northeast. The approximate mean elevation is 91 m (300 ft). The state's coastline is 71 km (44 mi) long.

    MISSISSIPPI. American FactFinder (U.S. Census) MISSISSIPPI, the "Magnolia State"
    MS The name "Mississippi" comes from an Indian word meaning "great waters" or "father of waters" In 1817, Mississippi was admited as the 20th state to the Union. Mississippi is a state that is going through great changes. Part of the Deep South, it was once a land of farmers and quiet towns. It is becoming a state of factory workers and busy cities. But tradition plays an important part in Mississippi life. The state retains many reminders of the Old South. Stately mansions bring back memories of Mississippi plantation life before the Civil War. The large, sunny beaches and fine hotels of the Mississippi Gulf Coast are popular vacation destinations. Der Name Mississippi leitet sich von dem indianischen Wort für "Großes Wasser" oder "Vater der Gewässer" ab. 1817 wurde das Gebiet als 20. Bundesstaat in den Verbund aufgenommen. Mississippi

    Mississippi's generally hilly landscape reaches its highest point (806 ft/246 m) in the northeastern corner of the state along the Tennessee River. The most distinctive region in the state's varied topography is the Mississippi Delta, a flat alluvial plain between the Mississippi and the Yazoo rivers in the western part of the state. A wide belt of longleaf yellow pine (the piney woods) covers most of southern Mississippi to within a few miles of the coastal-plain grasslands. Important there are lumbering and allied industries. Most of the state's rivers belong to either the Mississippi or the Alabama river systems, with the Pontoctoc Ridge the divide. The climate of Mississippi is subtropical in the southern part of the state and temperate in the northern part; the average annual rainfall is more than 50 in. (127 cm). The state, in the path of waterfowl migration routes down the Mississippi valley and home to many species of birds, is noted for its duck and quail hunting. Along the Gulf Coast, a favorite fishing area, are several resort cities and part of Gulf Islands National Seashore. Historical sites in Mississippi include Old Spanish Fort, the oldest house on the Mississippi River, near Pascagoula, as well as Vicksburg National Military Park, Brices Cross Roads National Battlefield Site, and Tupelo National Battlefield (see
