On a roll

Pedro Ortis takes a perilous ride Thursday on a mower as he cuts grass on a hill next to Ameristar Casino, just above the Mississippi River. After days of rain and overcast skies, lawn mowers were out in force Wednesday and Thursday as temperatures reached the high 80s. Mostly sunny skies are in the forecast through Sunday, and temperatures are predicted to climb near the 90s. (Jon GiffinThe Vicksburg Post)
