I grew up in Pearl, within sight (until the trees grew to block it) of some of the towers. I'm not sure just when the thing was built but I've always wondered, especially now, with all the fuss, why was it built in Rankin County but still belong to the city of Jackson? What was the deal? Does Rankin County, or Pearl, get anything out of it, money-wise? I always thought it weird, back when Rankin County was dry, that you could buy liquor at the airport.
