Football season not far away
By BARRY BURLESON
Football schedules for teams in Marshall County look a bit different in 2007.
Realignment means division changes for all three schools – Byhalia, Holly Springs and Marshall Academy.
Records meant to be broken
Funny how publicity plays such a huge part for the famous and the infamous. Can you remember back a short 10 years ago when the NBA threw all of its support behind the newly initiated WNBA and the league immediately soared? In the last couple of years some of the interest has soured and maybe it isn’t so much about how the games are played as when the games are played.
Knotty Bolden Memorial Rodeo features bull riding, clowns, more
The 23rd annual Knotty Bolden Memorial Championship Rodeo will be held at 8 p.m. on July 20-21 at the Knotty Bolden Memorial Arena on Highway 7, six miles north of Holly Springs.
There will be bull riding, bronco busting, calf-roping, barrel racing, clowns and more.
The big event, produced by J Bar B Rodeo Co., includes entertainment for the entire family, along with a delicious concession stand. Everyone is urged to come out and enjoy the activities.
A rodeo dance will be held Saturday night only, free with admission to the rodeo. Performing will be Ken Hatton and the Electric Rodeo Band.
The Knotty Bolden Memorial Buckle is donated by Cowboy Corner in Southaven.
Ticket prices are $8 for adults and $6 for children. Ages 3 and under are admitted free.

New crappie regulations start Aug. 11
The Commission of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks voted Wednesday to finalize a public notice of intent on new crappie regulations on Sardis, Enid, Grenada and Arkabutla reservoirs.
Public notice F12-3424a places new size requirements and creel limits at these reservoirs. Starting August 11, the creel limit at the four flood control lakes will be 20 per person and each fish must be at least 12 inches in length. Each boat may have no more than five poles per person. Grenada currently has a 12-inch limit on crappie and three poles per person based on a previous public notice. The 20 limit creel is also in effect in the spillways of the four reservoirs but there is no size limit in the spillways.
“We’ve experienced drought conditions the past three years and this year has been the most severe,” said MDWFP Fisheries Bureau Chief Ron Garavelli. “We want to take a proactive approach and not be reactive. These regulations are designed to not only improve crappie numbers, but keep the reservoirs producing the quality of fish they’re known for nationwide.”
