Marshall County Humane Society News
Farmers and Flea Market set for Saturday
The Marshall County Humane Society’s Farmers and Flea Market last month was such a hit that we’re doing it again this month on Saturday, September 9, during the Hummingbird Festival. If you’re interested in having a booth either inside or outside call Lynn Pullen at 901-490-8553. Otherwise, join us shoppers between 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. at the VFW in Holly Springs.
Last time, I got a 1-1/2” thick hardwood bread board almost as big as the top of my washing machine for fifty cents. After a find like that I have to go again, especially since the birdhouse people promised they’d be back and would have more butterfly houses.
If you would like to participate in our Humane Society, our next regular meeting will be Tuesday, September 19, at 6 p.m. at the public library in Holly Springs.
Sherry Janssen, our president, says you can participate without coming to the meeting if you’ll just help her clean up at the Adoption Center. (She’s getting a little desperate.) Call her at 662-252-5516 and let her know when you’re available.
Our sixth annual Spaghetti Supper is coming up September 26. Tickets will be available from members and at the Rental Barn in Holly Springs soon.
Coming up on our 7th anniversary, the Spay/Neuter Clinic is busier than ever. If your animal needs an appointment it’s good thinking to call 662-252-6196 well ahead of time. We’re open every Wednesday. Prices for dogs begin at $40 for a female and $35 for a male 25 pounds or less and increase by weight. Cats are $30 for a female and $25 for a male.
For information on adoptions, fostering and anything except the Spay/Neuter Clinic, call 662-564- 2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

FCC orders phone changes
If pending legislation in Congress passes there will be a lot of good news for the telephone using public after March 1, 1982. Customers will be able to buy or lease their home telephone equipment from an unregulated company or other manufacturer or supplier at competitive rates. Customers will also be able to buy long distance service from the telephone company or some other company. The changes will also enable the Bell System to offer high-technology computer-based communications. Home terminals could be used to shop by phone, bank by phone, “talk” to other computers by phone and many other possibilities.
