Precinct data from Trent Kelly’s primary election win last week could foretell a struggle for dominance in the 1st Congressional District between Lee and DeSoto counties. Daily Journal government reporter Caleb Bedillion (9:05) joins Brad and Derek to talk about the two emerging poles in the district — Tupelo and Southaven. Also on today’s show, education reporter Emma Kent (17:02) discusses how superintendents make decisions on whether to dismiss students when severe weather threatens, and photographer Adam Robison (23:30) describes his photo essay on a man who creates restoration light fixtures at J. Britt Lighting and Interiors. Food editor Ginna Parsons (27:26) breaks down this week’s food section — a pilgrimage luncheon, paninis and vegan cooking. And Brad has an idea for a new museum.
