Your iPhone ($699 at Amazon) home screen has looked and worked pretty much the same way for the last 13 years, but all that’s set to change now that Apple has released iOS 14. After you install iOS 14 or iPadOS 14 on a compatible iPhone or iPad, you’ll have more options and features to personalize your home screen than you’ve ever had with iOS before.

Park improvements coming to Legion Lake, Brigance Park, possible splash pad in the works | Chickasaw Journal

Legion Lake Park on Dulaney Street is slated for some improvements in 2021 after the Mississippi Legislature appropriated $150,000 for park upgrades. The appropriation request was made by the Chickasaw Development Foundation (CDF) during the 2020 session.

One group remains determined to save it.

Located at 915 N. Oak St., the John Nelson Deming House waits for occupants. The home erected in 1898 has sat empty for more than a decade and landed on the Georgia Trust for Historic Preservation’s 2020 list of “places in peril.”

What makes the two-story house unique, she said, is two things: this being one of three local homes with a Carolina porch and being built by John Nelson Deming.
