Newspapers impact lives
Sometimes I spend my Wednesdays, when I have time, greeting people who come in the office to purchase newspapers.
Close to Nowhere
Memory lane again...
In October, 1986, I didn’t know a single person in Holly Springs except Magnolia Harris and Steve Utley at the real estate firm where we bought our dream land.
But, one of the first things I’d done when we moved to Laws Hill from Memphis, Tenn. was to subscribe to The South Reporter. So, that October when an ad ran looking for someone to type part-time, I was thrilled. Something I could do! Maybe I wouldn’t go insane living in Mississippi after all!
Gipsy Smith revival meetings in 1926
Yesterday I had one of those spooky experiences that some people call “mental telepathy.” About 2:30 in the afternoon, a young researcher from Arkansas called to ask what I knew about Gipsy Smith, the famous evangelist of the 1920s.
Where do you put the “skean dhu”?
When you think of Scotland, what images come to mind? Mountains, lochs and bagpipes no doubt. But I bet tartan is also definitely one of them.
Letters to the Editor
County animal control:
I have just read the Letter to the Editor regarding County Animal Control. I have recomended these same things, in the past, in letters to the Board. The public needs to be educated, and held responsible for their actions, but Marshall County has to do their part as well.
