It’s time to put a wrap on the local basketball season.
But before I do, here’s a fresh bit of news.
One former Holly Springs High School Hawk already has his ticket punched for next week’s National Junior College Athletic Association championship tournament at Hutchinson, Kansas.
Tatties ‘chittin’ in Scotland
The weather might still be bitterly cold here in the Scottish Borders, but you can always tell spring is getting closer when the first of the year’s big events start taking place.
Black History Month
In early 1862, the shackles of slavery came off of enslaved Africans living in Holly Springs, although slavery did not officially end until 1865. A day after the Confederate Army of 22,000 vacated the town; the Union Army of 42,000 began to arrive and took control of the town.
Letters to the Editor
The special edition was just marvelous. I was gasping for air realizing how everyone was out all day and night, taking pictures, interviewing, and then putting this all together. So glad you put the times the pictures were taken to make people realize that Barry and others were without sleep for many hours and still put together a coherent publication.
It also makes the ordinary population realize how many people are working in the middle of the night to serve them in various ways.
This special edition gets better every year. I just don’t know how you all do it! Makes my little weekly all-nighter with the Memphis State College paper pale by comparison; although, we all felt like hell the next day. This was in the old hot-type days and I just loved it!
Keep it up! You all are just fantastic!
