It’s always nice to take a break.
This year my “spring break” was shorter than normal. In years past the family has taken several days and gone to places like the beach or Disney World.
Ephesians and vampire diets...
“Bumpy, what’s an Ephesian? Can I be one?”
We have very interesting conversations on our way to school most days.
A gentler version of “Now I lay me down...”
Lately at our church we have been discussing the Lord’s Prayer. Like so many things in the church it is the source of differences. Some say “debts” others say “trespasses.” The old saying goes that if a Scotch Presbyterian can forgive a debt, then he can forgive any other trespass!
Shaw University was the first public or private university for African-Americans in Mississippi, established by the Methodist Episcopal Church North in the city in 1866. It developed into a comprehensive educational institution with an elementary, secondary and college department. The first two African-Americans to graduate from any Mississippi university did so from this university in 1878.
Timeline in Holly Springs
1862 – Slavery ends in Holly Springs; Ida B. Wells is born in the city; the Holly Springs Contraband Camp is established and housed nearly 6,000 African war refugees. Holly Springs becomes a recruitment station for African-American Union soldiers. An army school was established for African-American children in the contraband camp.
Letters to the Editor
Recently, I had a medical emergency and my family called 911. I would like to thank the responders from the Holly Springs Fire Department, especially Kenny, Donna, and James who came to my home immediately after the call. I received care and attention from Arleas, Kathy and Dr. Hussein at Alliance Healthcare and I am grateful to them.
My thanks extend also to Sherry and the helicopter flight crew that got me safely to Memphis and anyone’s name I cannot recall.
We are fortunate in Holly Springs to have such people to help us in times of need. God’s blessing to each of you.

William and Shirley Likes would like to thank the fire department of Barton and everyone who responded to a 911 call on a neighbor’s grass fire which endangered our home. Also to the neighbor across the Lake who called in the fire. Thanks to everyone.
