Mr. Ed Hahn, originally from New Orleans now a resident of Carriere, MS is the Executive Chef for Paul’s Pastry. Ed's passion is food and has worked as a chef for 35 years, but his real love is art. Ed has carved wooden duck decoys since he was a small boy with his grandfather. His grandfather, Mr. Earl Blappert taught him the techniques of repairing the decoys heads and bodies before each hunting season. He had no idea that his love for hunting would turn into this fantastic folk-art, developing his skill in painting and carving. Ed will be at the Pearl River County Welcome Center April 6, 2013 demonstrating his gifted talents.

On Thursday, January 17, the Mississippi Film Office celebrated its 40th anniversary. Officially proclaimed “Mississippi Film Day” by Governor Phil Bryant, the celebration began with displays and a colorful cake in the rotunda of the State Capitol Building.
The one-of-a-kind cake, which highlighted various films shot in the state (such as “My Dog Skip,” “Walk The Line,” “O Brother, Where Art Thou?”, “The Help” and “As I Lay Dying”), was courtesy of Campbell’s Bakery in Jackson.
The day culminated with a reception at the Governor’s Mansion where Governor Bryant, friends of the industry and staff from the Mississippi Film Office mingled and shared their thoughts about the importance and impact of the film industry in the state.
All of the fanfare was the perfect kickoff for film festival season in Mississippi. The Clarksdale Film Festival ran January 24-27.
Other upcoming festivals include:
(Last year, the Crossroads Film Festival was selected as a Top 20 Event by the Southeast Tourism Society.)
