Humane Society to have booth at festival
September is upon us with lots going on, beginning with Labor Day this weekend, then the Hummingbird Festival at Strawberry Plains the next weekend.
For Labor Day watch for a return of the firecracker people and protect your animals accordingly. Keep them away from the noise and frenzy and don’t let them get overheated.
The Hummingbird Festival is Friday, Saturday and Sunday, September 7-9, from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. each day. Every year the attendance has increased by leaps and bounds. If you’ve never been, you really should take this opportunity to see one of the biggest assets our community has.
While everywhere else people seem determined to knock down every tree and pave over every field in the name of progress, at Strawberry Plains the Audubon folks provide and protect wildlife habitats and are returning the area to its natural state by removing “foreign” plants and planting things that normally grow here.
The Marshall County Humane Society plans to have a booth at the festival this year packed with good information on pet care so you can learn more about your own critters while you check out all the tiny little birds.
For your appointment at the Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-252-6196.
For information on fostering, adoptions or anything but the Spay/Neuter Clinic call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be mailed to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

Home phone seeks rate increases; protest seen
The price to “reach out and touch” someone is beginning to cost as much as “flying the friendly skies.” Telephone companies across the state, including Byhalia’s Home Telephone company, which also services Chulahoma, are in the process of raising their rates to customers. Letters and phone calls have been made to the Public Service Commissioner complaining about the rate increase. Byhalia mayor Sara Williams said last week she has contacted Snyder asking for help in the matter.
