One person was taken to the hospital after a crash in starkville tonight.

You see the car here overturned on its side.

Fire crews had to cut the roof of the car off to get the driver out.

Oktibbeha county fire cooridantor kirk rosenhan says a car pulled out in front of another.

The car that overturned hit a curb causing it to turn on it's side.

It happened in front of the dollar general at the intersection of ruth road and 182.

That's in the clayton village area.

The driver was transported to och for observation.

Mhp and east oktibbeha county fire responded.

The census comes around every ten years.

Have you ever wondered why it matters?

It turns out---it could impact your community more than you might realize.

Courtney ann jackson explains.

The president is still pushing for a citizenship question to be included on the 2020 census forms, despite the supreme court's decision to keep it off.

"it would help us to get complete count and would not segregate non-citizens out of the count."

The mississippi immigrants rights alliance notes they believe there was some under- reporting ten years ago due to language barriers and fear of the process.

"census count in the latin community of about 1/3 of the people that are really there.

They said we had 87,000 while our own experience shows it's closer to 200,000."

Immigrant issues aside---hinds county supervisor robert graham explains that the count has far-reaching impacts for the next decade.

"businesses use it.

Loca government uses it.

Other states use it.

People that are movig to the city.

People that are applying for grants.

So, it's very very important that we have an accurate count."

In a college town like clinton, they are paying particular attention to getting everyone living there---counted---including students at mississippi college.

"the last census that didn' happen.

So, technically, clinton was undercounted 5,000 people.

So, we're looking for that to be added this time."

Any underreporting can impact the money that goes to your community's infrastructure, for example.

"the monies that we get fro mdot through central ms planning development district come from the federal government.

Some of those numbers are based on population and where the population numbers are.

They're based on types of population."

If you're doing any traveling we have a few tips on how to handle food safely in our health talk with baptist.

Hi.

I'm libby walker, the morrison director of food and nutrition services at baptist memorial hospital golden triangle.

Tonight i want to talk to you about how to handle food safely while on the road.

Whether it's a quick trip to the park for a family picnic, tailgating at your favorite game or taking a favorite recipe to a family reunion, the 'road' to food safety can either be bumpy or smooth - depending on what precautions we take in handling meals as we travel.

There are some simple, common sense food safety rules that can save a special occasion from a disaster.

?

Plan ahead - if you are traveling with perishable food, place it in a cooler with ice or freezer packs.

Place drinks in a separate cooler so the food cooler is not opened frequently.

?

Pack safely - pack perishable foods directly from the refrigerator or freezer into the cooler.

Meat and poultry may be packed while still frozen so it stays colder longer.

Be sure to keep raw meat and poultry wrapped separately from cooked foods or foods meant to be eaten raw such as fruits.

?

When camping, keep the cooler in a shady spot and covered with a light colored blanket or tarp to reflect heat.

?

Keep drinks in a separate cooler from foods.

?

Hot take-out foods should be consumed within two hours of purchase.

Join us next time for health talk with baptist when we will discuss tips for packing safe french camp looks to continue its winning ways in 2019..

Stop number 10 features the french camp panthers head coach nathan wright leads a team that will feature some new faces in key positions ááintro billboardáááá the french camp panthers are looking to build off of last year's success.

Coming off a 7- 5 record, the panthers have their work cut out as they try to replace a big senior class.

"we lost over 10 seniors las year and a lot of them were starters.

We have to find different people to feed off of.

I found phillip.

Me and him feed off each other pretty well.

Our personalities line up so you just have to find your underclassmen.

You have to be someone they can follow and relate to."

"we're just trying to grin out, learning the playbook, and encourage the new people like 9th graders to step up.

Encourage the older kids that they can step up too."

The panthers look to fill a void in the backfield left by quarterback holman edwards and running back zac gilmer.

"most of our players last yea were skill guys so we're hoping to refill them.

We got some pretty good running back and quarterback duos coming up."

"our backfield was all senior last year.

Me and phillip will step in part time at running back position.

Cj johnson is looking like he will step up at the quarterback as the underclassman and lead the team.

We're pretty excited about that."

"just trying to get cj johnso to step up.

Making good throws which he's been doing.

He's grinding.

Everyone is trying to step up.

Me and bradley edwards as the next two runningbacks up this year are stepping up in that position.

It's been filled.

We're just trying to do our best.

Not trying to be like someone else but be our best selves."

Those guys will have to step up as french camp enters a new region loaded with tough teams. "week in and week out, it' going to be a battle.

When you have that many teams in one region, every friday night is pretty much a regional game.

Then every friday night matters tremendously and you have to bring your best each week.

It doesn't look like there will be an easy game in there.

Everyone will be clawing and scratching.

We'll see if we can claw our way to the playoffs again."

"it's always a great battl between us and nanih waiya and noxapater and all those guys.

It's usually a close game until the 4th quarter so it's all about who comes to play and makes the big plays."

"overall, i'd definitely sa we're excited about the new schedule.

It's just time to mix it up."
