A backhoe operator works at removing the pavement from the crossover at U.S. Hwy. 49 and Hall Street last week. Drivers on Hall Street wishing to access southbound Hwy. 49 must now take East Frontage Drive north or south to traffic signals at the Walmart entrance or Magnolia Drive.

American Pickers coming to Stone County American Pickers, a documentary series that explores the world of antique ‘picking’ on the History Channel, will be in Mississippi in January.
This show follows Mike Wolfe and Frank Fritz as they embark on an epic road trip across the U.S. in search of America’s most valuable antiques from motorcycles, classic cars and bicycles to one-of-a-kind vintage memorabilia.
Hitting the back roads from coast to coast, Mike and Frank earn a living by scouring the country for hidden gems in junkyards, basements, garages and barns.
The best part of their journey is meeting the unique characters along the way, each with a story to tell about the history of their collection and their own lives.
Wolfe and Fritz bring the past to life and recycle America as they go.
They use their determination, expertise and charm to strike the ultimate deals and discover just what it takes to re-sell a newly found antique in a competitive market.
The show is a production of Cineflix Productions and new episodes air Wednesday nights at 8 p.m. CDT.
Those who have a large collection or want to refer someone to the show's hosts may email their name, number, city, state and a description of the collection.
Include photos if possible.
The show may also be reached by calling 855-653-7878.
The show's hosts only pick private collections, so no stores, malls, flea markets, museums, auctions, businesses or anything open to the public will be considered. For a good cause Stone County Sheriff Department Chief Deputy Phyllis Olds wants toys.
