Golden retriever needs good home
Easter is right around the corner. While you’re dyeing eggs and finding just the right outfit please make all the chicks and bunnies in the baskets chocolate. Live ones are a lot of trouble and don’t usually survive very long as pets.
If you want something warm, yellow and fluffy how about Blondie. She’s a golden retriever mix who’s about two years old so she’s old enough to be over chewing up your shoes but young enough to still be full of play. She’s very affectionate but she’s also shy and needs a home where she feels safe and secure with plenty of gentle TLC to bring out her best qualities. She tested negative for heartworms. She’s up to date on all her shots and has been spayed. If you’ve got the right home for this special dog call 662-564-2900.
Congratulations to Wanda Boyd, our new vice president. She’s always been willing and reliable for any job, no matter how difficult or tedious. She’s spent countless hours sorting, pricing and cleaning at our thrift store and makes the best desserts you ever tasted. With her perseverance and dedication she’s sure to do an outstanding job in her new post. You go girl!
Once again, let me remind you that the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic is booked up far in advance for dogs.

Call 662-252-6196 for a date for your pet.

Pages from the Past

Gas prices decrease for spring traveling
Spring travelers in Mississippi are paying less for gasoline than they did last month, according to AAA Mississippi. The statewide average price for self-serve regular unleaded decreased to $1.203 per gallon.
The first girl chosen to serve as a page in the Mississippi House of Representatives made a nostalgic visit recently to the State Capitol, where her daughter was performing the same chores -- almost three decades later. Cherri Shaw of Waterford, daughter of the former Representative Mitch Stone of Potts Camp, was 12 years old when she served as a House page in the 1968 session. Her daughter, April Shaw, 14, worked as a page in March. Mrs. Shaw and her parents received a round of applause when they were introduced in the House by present Rep. Jack Gadd of Hickory Flat. And it was a family affair. Pebble Gadd, Rep. Gadd’s wife, is Cherri Shaw’s sister and is also the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Stone.

Miss Laird’s articles in Kansas Engineer
The March issue of the Kansas Engineer, a publication of the engineering student council of the School of Engineering and Architecture of the University of Kansas, has published a series of articles by Mary Laird, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles Laird of Holly Springs. Miss Laird, a junior in the college of liberal arts and sciences at the university, wrote “Engineering Circuit,” a report on various engineering organizations.
William Winter speaks to Rotary Club
State Tax Collector William F. Winter spoke to the Holly Springs Rotary Club Wednesday at their luncheon meeting. He was introduced by Rep. John Kennedy as “the most outstanding young statesmen in Mississippi today.” Mr. Winter spoke on the black market tax and bootleg whiskey situation in the state. It has always been a mystery to him, he said, how the state could say it was against the law to sell whiskey and then to collect taxes on the whiskey sold. The black market tax originated during World War II when there was a black market in sugar, tires, etc., as well as whiskey.
