0:28 "we've got to be customer service oriented.

And if you had a business where people had to wait in line for 2 or 3 hours to buy your product, you would adjust your business and that's what we need to do.

Early voting is in person.

It requires an id just like election day does."

Republican senator joey fillingane says he expects more conversations surrounding the topic.

0:48 "i can tell you where i want us to come down is certainly to make it as accessible as possible while still maintaining the voter integrity."

But governor reeves tweeting that he'll do everything in his power to make sure universal mail-in voting and no-excuse early voting are not allowed in ms while he's governor.

He says the only way it would happen is with a veto override.

But at least one house republican says---he doesn't think it should be controversial.

"this is one of those issues that shouldn't be partisan and it's been made to kind of be that recently.

So, hopefully the solution that we find is something that all parties are on board with.

We certainly don't want the drama."

Lt.

Governor delbert hosemann previously supported an early voting option while he was serving as secretary of state.

Counselor wendi woods of christian changes in starkville says there are a couple ways to stay stress free.

Right before bedtime, maybe take a 20 to 30 minute break from any media.any blue screens, telephones, computers, even television."

Intentional breathing exercises, woods says, is vital when it comes to body relaxation.

" you want to breathe like this and hold your breath for several seconds and let it out.

Instead of just looking at the tv all day waiting and some of this stuff will manipulate your mind if you look at it too long."

Woods says it's one thing to remember...patienc e is key.

"everyone has been impacted by the election, by racial tensions, by the unrest across our country, and by the pandemic itself.

He loved god.

He just wanted to be an example and he showed that through the way he acted towards people his mother linda launched the nick bell foundation shortly after his death& it's mission& to empower young people to become confident& kind& and generous young men and women& the goal is to have the same impact on people that he did bell says: even his coaches have told me nick had impacted their lives more than they have ever felt that they had impacted his.

I was looking at things reminding me of him being courageous and those are the traits we want to teach those kids.

The things we saw in my boy.

Some of the foundation's funds go towards camps& which help teach those character traits nick had...but another component of bell's mission includes trying to implement character requirements into the school curriculum& she's attempting to get it through the state legislature bell says: "kids are not getting what they need if they are being drawn to the streets.

We need to find out what they need and offer it to them in a controlled environment and then teach and encourage them from k-12.

It would make a huge difference for them but also for the community" anderson says: "i have never seen anything in the school system that can equal what was written up and used for young children."

The next step is to have some events at mississippi state in the near future& when things are safer& to help raise money for the nick bell scholarship& and continue to honor her son's legacy bell says: "my baby has still been gone for 10 years, but people still remember him like he is still here."
