The winds of change
Holly Springs is changing every day. Last week while I was entertaining the DAR in my living room, there were helicopters circling over my house. They were looking for an escaped prisoner who was loose for several hours. Then the helicopters landed and the hunt was over. Our great lawmen had caught the rascal.
