Hudspeth was serving a ten year sentence from tate county for possession of a firearm by a felon.

The second victim's identification is pending notification of next of kin.

That they were not related to the gang violence that led to a number of occurrences several weeks ago."

Sunflower county coroner heather burton's release paints a more specific picture of what happened in the early morning hours.

We now know that both inmates appear to have died from blunt force beating injuries.

James talley died when attempts to revive him were unsuccessful.

Timothy hudspeth was dead in a bed inside unit 30 when the coroner arrived.

The governor is also emphasizing a commitment to keeping an open line of communication about what's happening behind prison walls.

"we want to get accurate information out but we want to get it out as quickly as possible.

This administration is going to be transparent.

That's the reason the information was released this morning from the department of corrections.

You didn't have to hear rumors."

That same desire for transparency was echoed by mdoc interim commissioner tommy taylor monday.

At the legislative level, senator juan barnett says his corrections committee will keep it a priority.

"just know that going forward we are working on this on a daily basis and we're trying to find the best solutions to correct this problem as soon as we can.

Money doesn't solve everything so we are looking at everything.

When i say everything, i mean everything."

Roll vo in monitor the dam at the oktibbeha county lake continues to be a concerning issue for county leaders and residents// during tonight's board of supervisors meeting it was the first topic discussed// the board discussed draining the lake, which is now a top priority/// our quentin smith speaks with county leaders about this issue// so quentin are they wanting to drain the lake completely?

Not completely scott... fire coordinator kirk rosenhan says they want to drain it just below the soft spots in the dam itself.

The discovery of a mud-slide last week....and a potential breach of the levees are highlighting some of the concerns at the lake, now county leaders are work tirelessly to fix this issue to prevent anything worse from happening it was the discovery of this mudslide at the oktibbeha county lake that prompted county leaders to issue a voluntary evacuation and bring in pumps to begin pumping water out of the lake.

" they are doing more than what we thought and when we expected.

We were expecting around 25,000 gallons per minute, i think we're hitting around 50,000 gallons per minute."

The water levels have since gone down roughly 4 feet.

However during is presentation to the board of supervisors, ire coordinator kirk rosenhan says an additional 4 to 5 feet of water needs to be pumped out of the lake before they can begin to drain it.

"the dam is leaking but it is not leaking all the way at the bottom of it.

We're going to reduce the lake level down to a specified level as per the county engineer, that way they can go ahead and modify that intake structure then we can keep the lake down.

At this point it's too high and water won't go in it."

Ema coordinator kristen campanella says this should take roughly 2 weeks to complete.

However she admits the upcoming rainfall in the forecast could push things back..

" last we heard, every half inch that we get is 4 feet add it to the lake so of course will be monitoring that, but you know it's weather so we'll have to wait and see until it gets here."

Since last week the county has been downgraded from a warning, to a watch status.

Also engineers say there hasn't been any change to the slide since last week as well... while county leaders continue working to lower the water levels the roads just north of riviera road to just south of walter bell road will continue to be closed..

" we are making excellent progress.

I've got six pumps and up to four siphons working right now 24 seven.

We redid some of our piping yesterday and it greatly enhanced the flow rate."

Roll vo in monitor campanella says the county signed a local proclamation for the january 11th storm.

Now they're hoping to have the governor to sign off on it and issue a state of emergency declaration... followed by a presidental declaration..

Stinger changes could be coming to your kids menu at school// we'll explain why next// it's safe to say school lunch is probably one of the most important moments of the day// most trays will have a meat, a grain, a fruit and a vegetable...but some of these food groups could ádisappeará from your child's plate in the coming months// our cash matlock explains// since 1916, the usda has gone through about 9 different food guidelines for school districts across the country.

The food pyramid, is one of their most recognizable guides; however, their most recent symbol is the obama-era "myplate" design.

"we have five food groups, or food components, that we're required to offer everyday.

Meat, meat alternate, the grains, vegetable, fruit, and milk."

Amy rollins is the child nutrition director for webster county schools.

She says the current guideline puts an emphasis on fruits and vegetables.

"you want half of your plate to be fruits and vegetables and the other half consists of meats and grains."

In fact, children have to select either a fruit or vegetable for the meal to be reimbursable by the government.

"we're required to offer the orange vegetable, the dark green vegetables, the legumes, so we still have to fit that all in within a week."

Children can pick up to five items for their trays, but rollins says this is a rare sight.

"they're able to pick up that much.

Most of the time they don't.

Most of the time it's meat, grain, and the fruit or vegetable that they are encouraged to pick up."

Whatever the children don't pickup or eat gets thrown away.

This is why the trump administration has recently purposed roll backs on fruits and vegetables.

Cafeteria worker rebecca tulipan says regardless of guidelines, instilling healthy eating habits at an early age is most important.

"there's a lot of different categories they get to choose from to give them healthier choices."

"even if it's just one or two kids that we get to try something new and they like it, you know, i would hope that, that's something we could accomplish."

And making a happy plate... helps make a happy kid.

"if they don't see nothing but a smile, and it makes their day easier, hey, we've done our job then."

Centered the proposed rules from the trump administration will be published on jan.
