Sen. Wicker reflects on Big Creek roots; speaks of national issues during visit to Calhoun City Rotary

Senator Roger Wicker spoke of his Big Creek roots and some national policy during a visit with the Calhoun City Rotary Club last week.

Wicker was visiting Calhoun County with his father Fred Wicker, of Pontotoc.

“No sooner than we crossed the county line around Sarepta, Daddy said ‘now this is where the gravel road was when I started coming,'” Sen. Wicker said. “He remembered it being very crooked.”
When they pulled on to the Pittsboro Square Sen. Wicker said his father pointed out the room on the corner of the courthouse where he got his marriage license. Sen. Wicker said it was his first view of the new courthouse going up.

“Congratulations on the new courthouse,” Sen. Wicker told the Rotarians. “It was a long time coming.”
