Game time

Gavin Stewart, left, waits to hit a baseball thrown by Shun Pearson during a pickup baseball game held Saturday at Bishop Apartments. The baseball game was organized by Pearson, who has worked with youth throughout the years to offer them guidance and mentorship through his organization, Mississippi Delta Ceasefire Initiative. Pearson had teamed with Lavoris Weathers, whose nonprofit, Operation Peace Treaty Inc., aims to curb gun violence in the Greenwood area. Weathers, along with several other volunteers, gave away free plates of barbecue to residents in Bishop in exchange for them filling out a survey assessing how gun violence can be curbed.
