Couples vacation on the coast
Clay Crawford and Elizabeth Colhoun, along with two friends from Olive Branch, vacationed last week in the Fort Morgan, Ala., area. The couples enjoyed a condo overlooking the beach and the Gulf of Mexico. While on vacation, many good seafood meals were enjoyed, along with some much needed rest and relaxation!
The Sowell sisters, Mary Ann Tonroy and Nancy Taylor, returned home to Dallas after several days in Holly Springs. While here, they visited friends and introduced the two generations following them to their hometown. Mary Ann’s daughter, Leslie Block, and her two daughters, Molly and Katie, said the nice people and the good food proved to be more delightful than their ideas of Southern hospitality.
Charlie Douglas and children, Caroline and Chandler, of Starkville, were the weekend guests of his parents, Leigh and Dick Douglas.
Frannie, Buddy and Jane Farris just returned from a weekend trip to New Orleans. While there, they attended the New Orleans Bachelors’ Club summer party at the New Orleans Country Club. This cocktail party is the official start of the 2008 debutant season in New Orleans. In November, Frannie will be presented as a debutant by the Bachelors’ Club during their annual ball.
Everyone needs to mark their calendars for August 28, which is a Tuesday. On August 28, it is the right of everyone in Marshall County over the age of 18 to vote. The primary election has come and gone and there is no going back. However, August 28 is the date of the run-off election for several key playing positions in Marshall County. It is your duty as a citizen of Marshall County to do the right thing and go to the polls and vote. Why not vote on August 28? It is free and takes very little time, thanks largely in part to the wonderful poll workers!
Some may say that one vote does not amount to a hill of beans. Obviously, that is a falsehood judging by the returns of the primary election. It is appalling that men fought for everyone’s right to vote and some just do not bother to exercise it. Ladies, 87 years ago on August 26, we were given the right to vote. Coincidental that it is around the time of our political run-offs, August 28? I do not think so. The dates are sending us all a message - go vote. Make yourself be heard! If you do not vote, then you cannot complain when someone you do not think is up to the position gets in office. Save yourself and your friends the headache and go vote. If you did not vote in the primary election (which a lot of District 5 did not), now is the time to redeem yourself. Go vote. What is so amazing is how many registered voters there are compared to how many actually take the time to go to the polls and do their civic duty. Run-off elections are very, very important. Every single vote will count. If you missed the primary election, please go to the polls on August 28 and cast your vote then. Go vote.

The dress that started it all - the Cordova doll wedding
By Veronica Vinson
To make a long story short, about late May or early June, my niece, Gabrielle Jones said her doll, Ariel (from “The Little Mermaid” movie) was getting married and asked if I would make the doll a wedding dress. I did. I took it to work; they loved it, and suggested I make bridesmaid dresses, too. I did, and also made the three groomsmen’s outfits as well.
Daddy’s store on College Avenue
