Photo by David Cook A ladder truck is used to access the top of the grain bin during rescue efforts on Callicutt Road last week.

A farm worker buried up to his chin in soybeans Wednesday, Nov. 19, was saved by skilled and dedicated firemen and sheriff’s deputies.

Larry Mitchell, a longtime employee of the Callicutt family, went inside a grain bin trying to get the beans moving again after the auger that offloads the beans stopped feeding them to the truck.

A cavern had developed above the auger, according to Holly Springs Fire Chief Kenny Holbrook, and the dome above the cavern collapsed, causing Mitchell to drop into the hole. Beans quickly filled in the space around his body. Warren Callicutt was working with Mitchell and called for rescue crews to help while he entered the bin to help stabilize Mitchell.

The Holly Springs and Byhalia basketball teams matched up again about three days apart, this time with the Lady Hawks and the Hawks as the hosts.

After the opening tip Friday night, the Holly High girls reeled off four quick points. They sank a couple of more before the Lady Indians made a move. The first period was winding down rapidly when Kimberly Reed popped a three from the left corner. Tiyanna Powell followed with one of two from the line to get the Lady Indians to within one point (11-10) as the first quarter expired.

The rivalry between the city team and county team was renewed for the current basketball season November 18 on the Indians’ home court. A huge crowd can always be expected to attend these contests, between Holly Springs and Byhalia, no matter the outcome.

There was not a lot of speed to start the girls contest, and scoring was slow, even at the charity stripe. The Lady Hawks were sent there multiple times in the opening period and they made only one of six. They were committing more infractions than their opponents, but the Lady Indians weren’t sinking any either. They, too, only made one of six. Holly High came out on top, 11-6, in the first quarter.

What a bizarre feeling waking up Saturday morning and not having a state championship football game to look forward to next week. We have not had this in two years.

I have been humbled by our senior players and cheerleaders - a group of young people who have been bound by sheer determination and will for more years than I can count. The senior boys have competed in two state championships, played their hearts out, hurting and some bleeding, until the last second ticked off the clock. The tears shed Friday night were for a bunch of hard-working, big hearted players who gave it all they had, which is all any of us could have asked of them. Christian Compton, Dakota Dailey, Stephen Elgin, Tucker Fant, Thomas Faulkenbery, Jordon Harris, Jake Jones, Devin McGreger and Colt Lindsey made the season for all of us watching from the stands. Not a one of those young men did not play to their full potential. They represented Marshall Academy well, on and off of the field. Great things will come to those who lead, which encompasses this group.
