WCBI News at Ten 12/06/18

Good evening thanks for joining us at ten.

The nation is honoring president george h.w.

Bush this week.

We've heard many stories on the national level of friendships and working relationships with president george h.w.

Bush.

But courtney ann jackson has the story of a mississippi man with a special connection to the family.

Scheduling prevented visit mississippi director craig ray from making it to wednesday's service for george h.w.

Bush.

Still--he watched and fondly remembered a man he'd come to know well through the years.

"he was really just a good guy.

He was like a grandfather figure to the team, the people who were around him.

You really felt like you were a part of the family."

Ray first started doing advance work---traveling and setting up events---while bush was vice president and running for president.

And stayed with the team post- election.

"i served at the white house 89- 1993 through his four years there.

Official title is lead advance representative."

Ray traveled around the states and abroad in the role---leaving ahead of the president and getting logistics in place---be it for a fundraiser, visit back to texas, or meeting with world leaders.

Time talking or even any photos, for that matter, were always timed out during those white house years.

But ray's service to bush 41 didn't end when he left office.

He continued being called for advance work after that---including a trip to hong kong.

"to be there with him.

There were only like two secret service agents and myself and one other staff person.

And to be there with him for two full days to just spend quality time and reminisce about the service, the campaign, the years at the white house."

And it's photos like this or the letter that bush sent to him after he helped with the opening of his presidential library that ray now holds particularly dear.

"when you were with him, you felt like you had known him your whole life."

Ray later worked on the white house advance team for george w.

Bush, as well.

Centered up this morning the world of music lost a man known as the meanest saxophone player that ever lived.

Ace cannon passed away leaving a long musical legacy behind.

A victoria bailey looks back at his career.

-ace music- iconic saxaphone player ace cannon played his way into the hearts of all music lovers across the world.

"ace was a very revered citizen.

Everybody knows him.

Every time we see him he knows you and you know him.

We're going to miss him," his sudden passing is rocking his hometown of calhoun city.

"he was in here standing right there two days ago, i was helping them get some tea and today i woke up and i said he passed it was sort of a shock," ace started his music career in the 1950s and had been playing ever since.

Landing in the international rocakbilly hall of fame, memphis music hall of fame, and mississippi musicians hall of fame.

Calhoun city resident a long time friend to ace, hal reese junior says he will never forget when the two met.

"my first encounter with ace.

We had some real good musicians around here during that time.

Brian, martin, and harvey played together.

I'd go down there and listen to them, this is early 50s.

Brian said tomorrow we're going to the red and white store.

We want you to meet the sax player that's coming in and going to play for us.

I made sure i was there on time.

Here comes this pick up down the road.

He had a pair overalls on and a saxophone around his neck.

He jumped out of the truck ran in.

That was my first time meeting him he played well," cannon lived in memphis for many years during his career and moved back to calhoun city in the 80s.

Where he became a regular at places like buck's gas station.

"he used to hang around the round table he always gave us plenty of knowledge.

He was an avid golfer.

Of course, we always had to hear about his golf game every day.

I played many rounds of golf with him.

People who enjoyed ace's friendship as well as his music says he will truly miss his friend.

"i can't think of nobody offhand who didn't like him if you asked them to do anything for you he would.

Everybody loves ace and he loves calhoun city " "i did get to see them every month and have a good conversation with them every month and i miss those conversations" "he just a legend around here he always has been and always will be" centered up funeral arrangements are under way.

Look for lows in the education was at the forefront during a town hall meeting tonight in columbus..

State leaders, educational leaders and concerned residents all came out to discuss ways to strengthen and improve the educational system in the magnolia state.... our quen-tin smith was at today's forum... he joins us live in the studio with more... scott, as we all know education is vital to our community and state... and that was evident by the huge crowd of law makers, educators and concerned parents who were on hand tonight... many concerning topics were discussed tonight... topics that lawmakers say they're now going to work on and discuss during the upcoming session to continue moving the educational system in the right direction.... firearms on school campuses.... retaining teachers... and early childhood education.....these were just a few of the many concerning topics that came to the forefront when discussing ways to improve the state's educational system... " we're actually moving forward, probably in some peoples opinion at a snails pace, but our direction is up.

District 39 state represenative jeff smith was one of the lawmakers on the panel during the forum..

Smith says the accountability from educators and and the quality of education they're providing is one of the strengths in the state's educational system.

"we have the special education area now, the key is with special needs, we have gifted programs, we have so much but we're beginning to have some accountability, and that makes the taxpayer happy.

However, while he admits the state is making positive strides, smith also acknowledges....there's still more work to be done.

In particular, smith says he'd like to see the number of state tests be reduced... in fact, when the new legislative session rolls around smith says there are plans to eliminate one of those tests.... "well it's a history exam that was set up many many years ago by a group that is really no longer in existence.

They really wanted testing done to make sure mississippi history, the history in mississippi to the children worth, i guess kind of like the history they thought, but it's something that probably needs to be eliminated and there may be other tests but this one particular test for history achievement test.

We will probably do away with it."

While smith believes cutting down on the number of tests is one way to improve the educational system....distrcit 38 represnative cheikh taylor belives giving teachers a pay raise could also help with improvements " we got to get that up.

We got to make sure the teachers are valued, appreciated, and that they actually are paid for the job that they do.

Sometimes they are counselors in the classroom, sometimes they are nurses in the classroom, sometimes they are educators, and even gun control came up so sometimes they are protectors, so we have to make sure that they are getting valued through there pay for the job that they do."

Taylor says the state should also come up with ways to creative to fullu fund education...adding that it'll take more than the revenue the state will bring in from the lottery.

"we have to just look at the overall funding of it.

Right now the only amendment that was able to get into that lotta reveal was anything above $80 million.

It's going to be tough, it's going to be tough to get above that $80 million, so whether or not that was a good amendment it stands to be seen, but hopefully and it's my thought they should have been included in a very genuine interest in the beginning and not an afterthought with one single amendment."

Smith and taylor both agree that teachers do in fact need and deserve pay raises... smith says when the upcoming session rolls around.... lawmakers have money already set aside to grant teachers those pay raises..

We learn more in our health talk with baptist.

Hi.

I'm libby walker, the morrison director of food and nutrition services at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle.

Tonight i want to talk to you about how to pack a safe school lunch for your child.

Bacteria that cause foodborne illness, commonly known as food poisoning, grow rapidly at temperatures between 40 and 140 degrees fahrenheit.

In just two hours, these microorganisms can multiply to dangerous levels, which can cause foodborne illness.

Follow these tips to make sure the lunches and snacks you pack for your child are safe.

?

Wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds before and after handling food.

?

Rinse fruits and vegetables under running tap water.

Blot dry with a paper towel before packing them in your child's lunch.

?

Select an insulated lunch box or bag with enough room for two cold sources to keep the food inside safe.

Make sure it is easy to clean both inside and out.

?

If the lunch/snack contains perishable food items like luncheon meats, eggs, cheese or yogurt, make sure to pack it with at least two cold sources.

A frozen juice box or bottle of water can be used along with a frozen ice pack.

?

If packing a hot lunch like soup, use an insulated container such as a thermos.

Fill the thermos with boiling water, let stand for a few minutes, empty and then put in the piping hot food.

?

If you pack the child's lunch the night before, leave it in the refrigerator overnight with the lid or bag open.
