Thanks to law officers
Thursday, I attended the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce luncheon and was a bit late. When I arrived, Rep. Tommy Woods led the prayer, and immediately asked God to be with the two Olive Branch police officers who were shot early that morning.
Close to Nowhere
I don’t technically live in Harmontown, but I do go to church there.
Harmontown is several miles down Hwy 310 from Laws Hill — Laws Hill is part of a corner of Marshall County that sticks into Lafayette County.
Internet reunites “foxhole buddies” after 61 years
By Everette Stubbs
Jack Stubbs, Sr. of Holly Springs was recently reunited with a friend from World War II after last seeing each other 61 years ago on the battlefields in France. Like many members of the “Greatest Generation,” Jack Stubbs Sr. served his country proudly in World War II. As all Americans are aware, war has devastating effects and consequences; but, of course out of bad often comes good and one example could be friendships formed.
