Greenwood mayor makes major headlines

Gracious Greenwood Mayor Ernest Lampkins — who we often seen out and about at social events— was highlighted in a story in Sunday’s The New York Times.

This, of course, had nothing to do with any social event, but about troubling times for him as the first black mayor of Greenwood. For instance, sadly enough, two bullets were shot into his house in the dark of night while he and his family were sleeping. The story: "Yes, the Hostility Can Be Subtle. Then, One Day, It Isn’t."

It was promoted on the front page of Sunday’s editions and ran on the top half of page 16, the lead story in "National Report," with a color photo.
