THAT’S ONE BIG MOUTH You’ve probably never seen jaws like these before. They belonged to a behemoth 60-feet long, whose giant mouth bristled with 276 teeth.  Megalodon, the biggest prehistoric shark of all time, cruised all the world’s oceans more than two million years ago.  The Mississippi Museum of Natural Science will host the “Megalodon:  Largest Shark that Ever Lived” exhibit from June 5, 2010-January 9, 2011.  Related to the modern great white and mako sharks, Megalodon was a dominant marine predator for 15 million years before vanishing 2 million years ago. 

The exhibit conveys current research findings of Florida Museum paleontologists, and showcases both fossil and modern shard specimens and full-scale models from several collections. Visit live sharks in the Museum aquariums and enjoy special related programming throughout the summer. Visit for hours of operation and ticket prices. 

Governor’s Mansion Tours begin July 8 and run through the rest of July. The second oldest continuously occupied residence in the United States, the Mississippi Governor’s Mansion provides visitors insight into what makes this mansion so unique and special. Named a National Historic Landmark, the mansion is one of two to receive this mention. It was first occupied in 1842 and will excite visitors with its history and tradition. For more information, call 601-359-6421.

IT’S STORYTIME LIVE! Nickelodeon Presents Storytime Live! is headed to Thalia Mara Hall July 20. The tour has made its rounds across the United States and will be in Jackson at 4 p.m. The event showcases some of today’s top-rated and exciting preschool shows on television. Thalia Mara Hall will host the event and costs between $15.00 to $35.00. Included in the show are fan favorites “Dora The Explorer”, “The Backyardigans”, “Wonder Pets”, and “Ni Hao, Kai-Ian.” For more information, call 601-960-1537. Madison County Magazine - 5

With the help of a talented and accommodating designer, this young family made the most of their space and their budget.

(Above) Becki utilized items that the Fitts already owned to create a new display in the bookcases

(Above) In the master bedroom, Becki had the walls painted a soothing shade of blue and recovered the couple’s existing upholstered headboard.

“We by no means live in a mansion,” laughs Tim Fritts. “It may not be the biggest and the best, but it suits us perfectly and we love it.” As newlyweds, Tim and his wife Tracy moved into their Madison home twelve years ago. Most people don’t have a lot of disposable income, so they can’t sit back and spend thousands of dollars on window treatments in a new house,” says Tim. “Plus, when you start having kids and life gets in the way, those are the things that get put off for a while.” Years after the couple moved in, Tim’s parents turned to interior designer Becki Huesle of Something Southern Design and Furnishings to decorate their Oxford condo, and a light bulb came on. “We had never thought to use a designer in our house,” explains Tracy. But seeing Becki’s sense of style as well as her personal

Introducing La Bella Donna Minerals

involvement in Tim’s parents’ project made the couple mull over the possibility of bringing in a professional. “What really appealed to us is that Becki will work with any budget and anybody,” says Tim. With a goal of giving Tim and Tracy a home that would suit their lifestyle – particularly that of parents to two young kids – Becki went to work. “They were unhappy with their house for a lot of reasons,” says Becki. “They are young and vibrant and love to entertain, but they just needed guidance in achieving they house that they wanted for their life. Plus, it really is easy to completely transform a house for not a lot of money.” “We lived in this house for ten years with no window treatments,” says Tim. “Being a man, I had no idea what curtains could do! But they have added so much to the house.” In fact, the window treatments, transplants from Tim’s parents’ condo, are a perfect example of how Becki is a believer in making what you have new again. - MC

wine of the month

Keep it Simple

By Pete Clark


e have begged for relief from the much colder winter, and at last it has arrived. The warmer days lead us out to patios and decks in the evening to enjoy the longer days. A big part of my time at home is spent out on the patio, and I’ve found a simple way of entertaining and a great way to relax at the end of the day. A single apple, a small wedge of cheese and a chilled bottle of wine can be a wonderful way to unwind.   I have found that the best way to enjoy wine is to keep it simple when possible.  Three or four folks over for a glass on Thursday or Friday after work are the times we recall as the best.   The good ole days are right now.   I remember my mom and dad having friends over when I was a kid. They would all gather on the deck to catch up on the week and discuss everything from politics to children to the latest craze, like who had the new color TV or that rock and roll music that my older brother and sister were listening to. These were the best of times and have been passed on to the next generation.   While the wine of their day, Blue Nun or Mateus Rose, is no longer what we might consider fine wine, I see nothing wrong with drinking the lighter, slightly sweet stuff if that’s what you like. No one should feel uncomfortable when enjoying a glass of

12 - Madison County Magazine

wine. Over the last twenty years, the wine trade has changed along with the tastes and preferences of people here in Madison County and all across the country.   For instance, the blend from Pine Ridge of their Chenin Blanc and Viognier is fantastic for just such a setting as this.  It is light and refreshing with grapefruit and pear flavors that are a fine accompaniment to any patio get together. The Legado Torrontes is another hidden beauty in this category.  Crisp and peachy, this is one of those wines that people seem to say, “Wow I’ve never had that before, but it sure is good. What is it?”   For a red wine, warmer weather presents us with a small problem.  Reds are generally served too warm (and the opposite is true of whites being served too cold).   If the temperature is above 85° outside, reds can start to hint of musty alcohol. Do not be shy to slightly chill a red wine if it is to be served outside on the deck on a warmer evening.  Stick it in the fridge for a few minutes to help knock it down a few degrees before serving.  By no means put it on ice, but a little cooling off may help it show its fruit better. - MC Pete Clark is the owner of Madison Cellars.

LAUREN JONES 24 - Madison County Magazine

While Lauren Jones of Madison has led a storybook life, she’s also worked hard and is a very driven young woman. “I know what I want in life, and I’m willing to work for it!”


he blonde beauty grew up in Jackson, going to school at St. Andrews from pre-K through the

ninth grade. “Going to St. Andrews was a great experience for me,” said Jones. “Not only did I

receive an excellent education, they also fostered the idea in us to dream big, and to have lofty aspirations. That has always stayed with me.”

After the ninth grade, Jones moved to New York with her mother and new stepfather. She

began modeling and when she was 16, she won the national modeling contest for Seventeen magazine. “My mother and grandmother sent me to the audition, mainly just for the experience. I got there, and saw the most

beautiful girls from all different ethnic backgrounds, and I was just a blond-haired girl from Mississippi. I never thought I could win, so when I did, I was shocked!”

That win meant she was featured in the magazine, and went on to appear on shows like Live with Regis and

Kathie Lee. “At that point, I got an agent and went on some serious auditions. That’s where my Mississippi upbringing really helped me. After seeing so many jaded models, casting directors liked that I was so relatable and down-to-earth, so I got a lot of jobs.”

Jones could have continued on that path, but her mom stepped in and said she had to complete her education. “She said I had to go to college and get an undergraduate degree, and then she’d support anything I wanted Madison County Magazine - 25

“She said I had to go to

to do.” Jones went to the Parson’s School of Design in New York, “under protest,” but she went on to earn her degree. She also studied abroad in London. “I had some great experiences.”

After college, Jones did well, even landing a magazine cover, but she decided she wanted to move to Los Angeles. “It was scary, because I had convinced three of my Mississippi friends to

move into an apartment in New York with me, and they were my support team. When I went to L.A., I was on my own.” She also

learned that in L.A., everyone wants to know you because of what you have to offer. “There was a lack of sincerity for sure.”

Yet Jones thrived in L.A. She was selected to be a “Barker’s Beauty” on The Price is Right, and she was cast in several other

projects. She was in the Bay Watch Beach Body Workout and

hung out with Sylvester Stallone on a daily basis. But two years

into her L.A. adventure the writer’s strike began. “Things were tough,” sighed Jones. “And I missed home.” By then, her mom had moved back to Mississippi. “My mom said I should just come home for Christmas and re-evaluate. Once I got home, she

commented that I never stayed long when I came because I was

always rushing back to L.A. But I didn’t have any friends left

introduced me to her neighbor’s son, and we fell in love. I’m now engaged to Travis Pope!”

That prompted Jones to move back to Mississippi, and in with

her mom in Reunion. She missed modeling and acting, so she

knew she’d have to create a way to stay involved on some level. I read about people like Kathy Ireland, Elle McPherson, Oprah and Martha Stewart. They sought out opportunities.”

Her mind went back to a gentleman she met in 2007 in a sushi bar. “He was a partner in the Martinez Valero shoe company. We

talked and he sent me a pair of shoes and said if I wore them on

a red carpet or other event to send him a picture. We stayed in touch, and last year he called me to model for him. I told him I

didn’t want to model shoes–I wanted to design them!” He flew to Mississippi and we talked, and he was concerned because

designing shoes is a lofty aspiration. I told him I graduated from

Parson’s and that I wanted to begin designing a bridal collection. We drove over to the Bridal Path in Banner Hall, and I went in and showed him that I had selling and marketing skills, too!”

Valero. The line is available online at Belk, and Sears department stores.

“I never realized the kind of opportunities that are available

here. But sometimes you have to make your own opportunities. Being here has forced me to think more creatively. I still jet out on

weekends for meetings and to shoe shows, but during the week, I’m right here and I love the fact that I can go by any time and give my 81-year-old grandmother a hug.”

After living in New York, L.A., London and Austin, Texas, Lauren Jones has come back to her roots to roost. “ I love living

in Madison County, where there is great shopping and amazing restaurants. I found I can do the same things I was doing before

and still live here. I was called to New York to do a makeover for “O” magazine, and two weeks later, Sylvester Stallone needed a

girl to play Mickey Roark’s girlfriend in an upcoming film and I got the job! The great thing is the Jackson airport is so easy to fly in and out of, yet when I’m home, the people here are absolutely real. I’ve got the best of both worlds!” - MC

They raised their children on the foundation of love and support but also guidance. 
“My parents have always been completely positive and encouraging throughout everything with school and made me feel like I was the best student and the smartest one there was,” Oldest daughter, Molly, an Ole Miss senior studying hospitality management, said. 
Molly’s little sisters, Shelby Jo and Jamie are following in her footsteps.

“Every summer I’ve been and just gotten to know the staff and what they do and how they serve the people over there,” Shelby Jo said.
 Jamie is taking voice lessons as well as competing in hip hop dance exhibitions. 
She has two older sisters to look up to for guidance but she knows there are some benefits of being the youngest. 
“They give me free clothes and drive me places,” Jamie says and her family laughs.
 The final question I ask is with one daughter at Ole Miss and the other at Mississippi State, who do they pull for in the Egg Bowl? 
“Southern!” Shannon says immediately.
“State!” A proud Jimmy, a graduate of Mississippi State, says.
“Whoever wins,” Jamie replies.
 One thing about this family is that there is always a smile on their parents face, and that transcends into a simple gesture of love.
