Photos | Temporary Ice Rink Thrills Central Mississippi Hockey Players

The skating rink at "Christmas on Ice" in Madison is the best present a group of central Mississippi hockey players could receive. The group, made up of former pro players, northern transplants and a surprisingly large number of homegrown players, used the rink at the Baptist Heath Systems event during off hours for practice and numerous games. Many of these players drive to Olive Branch in north Mississippi or Biloxi on the coast for a chance to practice or play on ice. There are no permanent ice rinks in central Mississippi.

Go to our Facebook Photo Gallery to see photos of hockey players on the rink at Chrismas on Ice in Madison, Mississippi. Click here to see all our photo albums.

A video news story about the players is coming soon to Newsocracy.

Photos of Magnolia, Mississippi

Knowing that the approaching New Orleans, Jackson, and Great Northern Railroad would need a station for water and fuel, plantation owner Ansel H. Prewett founded Magnolia, Mississippi in 1856. Magnolia grew rapidly in the 1860s, and in the late 19th century Magnolia served as a popular small-town resort for wealthy New Orleanians who took trains north from the city to enjoy Magnolia's fresh air and sparkling creeks. At one time early Magnolia boasted an opera house, skating rink and several hotels that catered largely to these tourists.
