It was a dreary day weather-wise Wednesday of last week.
There was a steady mist. It still appeared foggy at 11 a.m. The temperature was dropping as the noon hour approached.
The history of Veterans Day
President Eisenhower signs HR7786, officially changing Armistice Day to Veterans Day.
November 11, or what has come to be known as Veterans Day, was originally set as a U.S. legal holiday to honor Armistice Day - the end of World War I, which officially took place on November 11, 1918. In legislature that was passed in 1938, November 11 was “dedicated to the cause of world peace and to be hereafter celebrated and known as Armistice Day.” As such, this new legal holiday honored World War I veterans.
“The bearer is commended to a congregation”
Last Sunday we received a new member at our church. She is Therese Apel, of Holly Springs, who works for The Southern Sentinel in Ripley. Therese was received into our congregation by transfer of her church letter from the Presbyterian Church in Hazlehurst.
One of the most beautiful times of year
Autumn — or fall as you guys call it — is one of the most beautiful times of the year here in Scotland. The leaves are all turning shades of bright red and shimmering gold and the heather is bright purple and vivid crimson splashed across the hillsides.
Letter to the Editor
Do these citizens care about how they drive?
Apparently not, they drive in school zones and neighborhood roads like they can drive at any speed they want to.
The police don’t take enough action, such as Holly Springs police and Marshall County police or even state police, so I guess we will have to wait until someone gets killed in town or on Highway 78 before something gets done right. This is something for everyone to think about. Please, slow down and save a life.
