BATESVILLE – A unique Panola County business is poised to take off, says Larry Freeman, vice president of The Hangar, Inc.

The aircraft repair and maintenance facility has been located at the Panola County Airport for approximately three and a half years, Freeman told Batesville Exchange Club members last week.

The Hangar, Inc. is the only Class 3 Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) certified repair and maintenance station in the State of Mississippi.

In 1927, the worst flood of record hit the Mississippi Delta. In the same year, Babe Ruth hit a record 60 home runs.

Ruth’s record would stand for 34 years and the flood still stands as the worst on record. Ruth had a little known teammate by the name of Sam Vick, who was from the Mount Olivet Community in Panola County.

With the lake levels falling, all beaches are now open at Enid Lake.   Remember, there is a $1 per person up to $3 per vehicle charge for use of these beaches.

To help protect our public, all beaches at Enid Lake are equipped with depth marker poles to help swimmers determine water depth. Rescue poles and throw bags are also available in the event a swimmer gets into trouble.
