May 25, 2011 EDP Unveils iPhone/iPad App to Promote County WIGGINS, Miss. - The Stone County Economic Development Partnership (EDP) is among the first economic development organizations in Mississippi to have its own iPhone and iPad applica- tion or "app." "As we work to promote Stone County as the loca- tion of choice for business, industry and tourists, it is important that we take advantage of every tool we can," said Jay Paul Gumm, EDP executive director. "Our new app will put a wealth of information into the hands of anyone inter- ested in our county." Among the information available in the app are: • A directory of EDP member businesses with contact information; • Tourism information about Stone County; • A community calen- dar; lqae latest news from the EDP; and Direct links to locate, call or email the EDP. Gunun said the iPhone/iPad is the begin- ning of a new online effbrt to promote Stone County. "We hope to expand our online presence to include both the Android and BlackBerry platforms next year," he said. "We have a viiually unlimited target audience with this app, as we will use it to promote our com- munity to people looking for a great place to vaca- tion, as well as businesses and industries looking to expand or relocate." The software is available now in the Apple App Store for free download. To find the app, simply search the store for "Stone County" or "SCEDP" - the app will be near the top of the search results. Also, the EDP has developed a "tag" that can be scanned by a camera-phone to take the user directly to the app. Pets in need of good homes and loving families There are currently six dogs, six kittens, and many barn cats available for adoption through Stone County Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SCSPCA).

I, LOCAL I Jackie Spruill Spruill announces candidacy ,lackie Spruill recently released the following statement regarding his candidacy for Stone County Superintendent of Education 1 am excited to announce my candidacy for Stone County Superintendent of Education. I see the unparalleled potential in the Stone County School District. I feel I possess the drive and dedication that it takes to be the suc- cessful leader of a school district. I am married to Robin Davis Spruill, a guidance counselor at Stone High School. We have one son, Tyler Spruill, who is also employed at SHS, as a teacher and baseball coach. Our entire family has a vested interest in making Stone County the best dis- trict possible. I am currently the princi- pal of Stone Elementary School, where I have been an administrator for the past eight years. For eight- een years, I have worked at the elementary, middle school and high school-lev- els, as well as an adjunct faculty member at MGCCC. I have Bachelor of Science degrees in mathematics and in social studies and a Masters degree in Educational Leadership, all from USM. As a principal, I have per- sonally seen good plans implemented in each of the four schools that comprise Dtone Countp Enterpriee 143 S. First St., Wiggins our school district. Each school has done some things exceptionally well. However, each school has different weaknesses. I feel that I have the vision to combine these, ahmg with new ideas to create a successful school district. Success is imperative at each school level to pre- vent failure of an immeas- urable number of students. As Superintendent, I will also focus on strengthening our partnership with the community. Parents are concerned about their chil- dren's education and they want to be involved. I will strive to increase parental and community involve- ment in all of our schools. Everyone's input will be valued. I ask you for your support on August 9nd. In the Democratic Primary, please cast your vote for me. Thank you for your consideration.
