  3 on the Road: Mr. D's Country Store

Arthur Davis was visiting his sons at Alcorn State University a couple of decades ago when he saw this building for sale in Lorman. At first he wanted to buy it and flip it for a profit. But instead he turned it into a restaurant.

The new Two Museums in downtown Jackson have surpassed all attendance estimates since they opened in December, but Three on the Road reminds us there are a bunch of museums in Jackson, and one of them is just a few blocks up Jefferson from the Two Museums.

  3 on the Road: Merit Falls

Merit Falls near Mendenhall is one of the state's cool spots. It's the kind of place we like in the summer.  City kids go to the municipal swimming pool, but out in the country they head for the nearest swimming hole.

  3 on the Road: Delta Day Lilies

Three on the Road is in a Delta backyard this week to take a look at a gardening hobby that exploded. That's what happened at John and Frankie Oswalt's daylily garden near Cleveland. We just got word that John passed away recently. So I'm really glad we got to meet so we can take look at the color he cultivated in his backyard. It will a part of his legacy for years to come.


There may be a lot of things that Mississippi "isn't". But one thing that we ARE, we are the "most generous state in the nation." Generosity is a part of what makes Mississippi Strong. And that spirit of generosity starts early in life, too.

  3 on the Road: Son of a Gun

Three on the Road takes us into the backcountry with a trip to where a movie is being made. And the subject of the movie is even more far-out than it's setting.

  3 on the Road: Paulding

Places come and then they go. Three on the Road takes us to what used to be one of the most influential towns in Mississippi. It's not much more than a crossroads today; Paulding in Jasper County.
