With all the bustle of the new school year don’t forget pets
Now that the kids are back in school, who’s walking the dog and letting the cat out at night? In the hurry and bustle of the new school year, between extracurricular activities, homework and new friends, don’t let Rover and Miss Kitty be forgotten. They still need feeding and exercise on a regular basis and that litter box won’t empty itself. Whether you work it out by taking turns or assigning one person to the task, make sure the four-leggeds aren’t overlooked, even for a day.
If back-to-school expenses have wiped out your budget and your animals need to be spayed or neutered, perhaps the Marshall County Humane Society sponsored, low-cost Spay/Neuter Clinic can help. Our prices are as low as we can make them, some grant money is available for Marshall County residents, and vouchers can help if you don’t live in Marshall County. Lack of funds should not prevent you from taking this important step in caring for your pet and, in the long run, it’s a lot cheaper to pay the one-time expense of a spay or neuter than to keep having litter after litter to take care of and find homes for. Call 662-252-6196 for an appointment.
For information on adoptions, fostering or anything else about our Humane Society, call 662-564-2900. Correspondence and donations should be sent to the Marshall County Humane Society, P.O. Box 625, Holly Springs, MS 38635.

City’s hospitality attracts another movie deal for Holly Springs
Movie cameras will be rolling once again in Holly Springs -- for a few days anyway. The final scene of the film “Roads and Bridges” will be shot at the Mississippi Central Railroad yard in Holly Springs. Another movie returning here so quickly after “Cookie’s Fortune” is due to the positive impressions the crew of “Cookie’s Fortune” drew from the town, according to “Roads and Bridges” producer Rachel Wapnick. “Everyone had such a good experience in Holly Springs. The people here are so nice,” she said.

Gasoline explosion rocks Holly Springs
The vibrations were felt nearly a mile away when a gasoline truck exploded at South Side Grocery Friday. The owner said he looked out after he heard the explosions and saw the truck driver running, on fire, away from the truck and yelling for everyone to get away. Flames erupted from the two above ground tanks at the store and the tanker truck, carrying 8,000 gallons of gasoline, was fully involved in flames. State trooper Mike Shaw, who lives directly across the street said, “I was trying to get my family out of the house, call the fire department and stop traffic all at the same time.” Fire chief Joe Fant arrived at the scene and quickly organized the effort to extinguish the blaze.
Mike Shaw of Holly Springs recently placed first in two events at New Albany’s first Open Karate Tournament this past weekend. Shaw placed in the sparring events in the purple, brown and red belt championship and first in the kata or “forms” in the green, blue and purple belt division. Shaw has been active in karate since 1983.
