I am sure many of you are thinking, what crazy thing is Sue up to now…and what the heck is a Mooie Looie!

Several years ago, when Brandon Johnston was working with me, we decided we wanted to have a “Big Buck” contest.  At that time, there was a Big Buck in Hattiesburg.  I knew I could not name the contest the Big Buck.

I called my youngest son Breck, explained my idea to him…I need a contest name!!! …the biggest…the best…

Breck explained that he and his buddy Michael Conway (who is now deceased) always called the best looking girl, the hottest car, the best of anything…the Mooie Looie!

So that my dear friends this  is how Mooie Looie was born!

I laid “Mooie Looie “to rest for several years.  As I thought about the areas in Magee and the people and businesses trying so hard to keep their places clean and neat…I just felt the time had come to recognize our citizens for their diligence and lay off the bad folks for awhile!

I want you to help select the “Mooie Looie” of Magee in the category of yard.  (Neat, attractive, well maintained…does not need to be the biggest yard etc…just one that appeals to you.). If possible, send a picture and address to Sue or reply on FB.

Who is going to be our first “Mooie Looie?”  Let the games begin!

The contest winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 22, 2023
