Today marks the 75th anniversary of the attack on the Pearl Harbor U.S. Naval base in Hawaii.
The so-called day that will live in infamy launched the United States into the Second World War. Daily Journal reporter Zack Orsborn (12:01) recently spoke with Northeast Mississippi veterans about their recollections of that day. He joins Derek and Brad on today’s show to share their stories and tell how the experience inspired the men to join the service.
Also, Daily Journal law enforcement reporter William Moore (17:28) talks about the end of burn bans across Northeast Mississippi. Governor Phil Bryant lifted the state-level burn ban last week, and many counties followed suit and lifted their individual bans this week. However, officials with the Mississippi Forestry Commission still urge caution when participating in outdoor burning.
Meanwhile, food editor Ginna Parsons (26:47) has the highlights of this week’s food section. That includes a creamy wild rice and mushroom soup she recently made.
