New prices for the new year at clinic
Now, while you are still numb from getting property tax bills, here’s another shock for your system. The prices at our Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic are going up, effective January 1, 2008.
The new prices will be as follows: female cats will be $40; males $35. Dogs 25 pounds and under will be $50 for females, $45 for males; 26 to 40 pound females will be $60, males $55; 51 to 70 pound females will be $70, males $65.
Yes, the Spay/Neuter Clinic will be open every Wednesday, including December 26, through the rest of the year, but, no, there are no appointments available this year unless someone cancels.
Again, we would like to impress on you the importance of letting us know ahead of time if you have an appointment you can’t keep. The “or sooner” list is almost as long as the appointment list. If you just don’t show up that opening has been wasted and all those “or sooner” people would be really mad at you if they knew. Please be responsible and call if you can’t come.
To make or cancel an appointment at the 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 sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

Lott eyeing Senate? (by Wayne W. Weidie)
Republican U.S. Rep. Trent Lott seems to have a charmed political life. The recent U.S. Senate race between Sen. John Stennis and Haley Barbour is a good example. Lott was able to walk the political tightrope and didn’t feel any fallout. It’s no coincidence that Barbour’s defeat left the door open for a future U.S. Senate race by Lott. Many Lott supporters would hate to see him give up his GOP leadership in the House and an outside chance to become Speaker of the House at a future date, but Lott is keeping his eye on the Senate.

Anti-quickie marriage law passes both houses
The Mississippi Legislature completed the passage of the Marriage Bill yesterday. It will become law on July 1, 1958. All applicants for marriage license must fill out the proper application with the circuit clerk, which must remain open and on the books for three days before a license can be issued. It must include a medical certificate showing applicants are free from syphilis. You must also show proof of age. Girls under 15 and boys under 17 will not be issued licenses unless there is the reason of pregnancy. Clerks cannot issue licenses to persons who appear to be “drunk, insane or an imbecile.” The bill was supported by all the Marshall County representatives.
