Athletics has a way of bringing a community together.

December 22 is my friend Jane’s birthday and we celebrate every year at the Kate Freeman Clark Art Gallery Christmas Gala.
The best way to “take back Christmas”
Early this week I joined a friend for Christmas shopping in Memphis. I noticed that both shopping centers we visited had speakers set up in the parking and pedestrian areas outside spreading melodious Christmas cheer in the form of traditional carols. The Barnes & Noble store had a taped rendition of “O Little Town of Bethlehem” being sung while I shopped for the latest books on politics.
Letters to the Editor
I was so proud of Holly Springs this past weekend.
Nearly everybody pitched in to make the season and town Christmasy.
The lights twinkling all around the town, the big Christmas tree on the courthouse lawn, the bandstands on the Square were all breathtaking.
The Chamber of Commerce’s 18th Christmas parade was also wonderful. The bands with the music and the drumbeat and all those band children strutting and dancing were really exciting.
Impressive, too, were the fleet of Cadillacs, the prancing, dancing horses (one had on overalls) all dressed for the parade and the sparkling floats. One was complete with a nativity scene and a real donkey, which is a rarity these days.
I’m so glad Santa came to town on that beautiful red fire engine. It was too cold for the reindeer.
I want to say “thank you” to everybody who helped get it ready.
I was so proud that we showed off Holly Springs for our visitors on the tour who came to see and enjoy beautiful Holly Springs.
