By JASON PATTERSON

Jayne Dew made history Tuesday night as she became the first female elected supervisor in Yazoo County.
Dew defeated David Shipp 566-454 in a runoff election to fill the seat that her late husband, Ed Dew, occupied for 20 years until he died in February.
“Someone mentioned that I had made history by being the first woman elected supervisor, and I had forgotten about that,” she said. “I don’t think it has sunk in yet.”
