R stands for Responsible - depend- able and can be trusted, I stand for Inclusive - everyone is welcome, F stands for Friendly - kind and helpful. I represents the characteristic of being Inquisitive - question- ing or curious and eager to learn C stands for Capable - able to do a task or job. tics all together and you have a "Terrific Kid!" The Kiwanis Club of Stone County encour- ages all the children to work on these character traits and good citizen- ship and to believe in themselves and achieve their goals. Paul Rigby, Vice , President of the stone County Kiwanis Club, presented the certifi- cates with their folder of goodies to the March Terrific Kids at Perkinston Elementary and at Stone Elementary School on March 29th. Along with a Terrific Kid bumper sticker for their parent's vehicle, they received Terrific Kid pencils, rulers, buttons, stickers, and a certifi- 'cate from Pizza Inn. You could see the excitement across the gym at Stone and cafeteria at Perkinston when it was announced there was a gift certificate from Pizza Inn! It was a joy to see the reactions of the second-graders at Perldnston and at Stone when their classmates were identified as Terrific Kids. Looks like there's a whole lot of Terrific Kids in our second grades who know how to be thoughtful and enthusi- astic! As Mr.Rigby explained to the group of second- graders, we will return to each School each month and recognize a second grade who have been identified as Terrific Kids for that month. He encouraged all of the students to display the character traits of a Terrific Kid, to be thoughtful, enthu- siastic, respectful, responsible, inclusive, friendly, inquisitive, and capable - to do their best in their relation- ships with others and in their school work. Congratulations go to the children selected as Terrific Kids for the month of March, 2o12. At Perkinston Elementary, Gianna Tortes, Kamden Grimmett, Maritza Elmore, Juiluis Currie, Sarah Smith, Larry Marshall, Toree Loper and Lauren Hendry were recognized as Terrific Kids. At Stone Elementary Adam Street, Hayleigh Breland Bradley Bates, Tamia Johnson, Harley Nolan, Iyona Warren, Daniel Jordan, Sara Bond, Christopher Ryan, Lyndzie Hardy, Hunter Wieck, and Emily Smith were present to receive their certificates and folders of goodies for being selected as Terrific Kids. Congratulations to all our MarchTerrific KidS" - keep up the good character and student traits that you have dis- played this month! Weekly MS gas prices Mississippi, Aprfl3o- Average retail gasoline prices in Mississippi have fallen 5.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.66/g yes- terday. This compares with the national aver- age that has fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.81/g, according to gasoline price website m. Including the change in gas prices in Mississippi during the past week, prices yester- day were 6.1 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 8.3 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 8.6 cents per gallon dur- ing the last month and stands lo.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. "Unsurprisingly, the average price for a gal- lon of regular self-serve continues to drop in a majority of communities across the United States," said Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "The national average now stands nearly lo-cents per gallon lower than the same date a year ago, but will we hear an end to complaining about gasoline prices at the pump? Perhaps the rhetoric will wind down, but with summer around the corner, any sudden increase in price of gasoline will have Americans virtually call- ing for the heads of politicians in November," DeHaan said. GasBuddy operates m and over 250 similar websites that track gaso- line prices at over 14o,ooo gasoline sta- tions in the United States and Canada. In addition, GasBuddy offers a free smartphone app which has been downloaded over 20 million times to help motorists find gasoline prices in their area.
