The Thanksgiving holidays are always special. This year, for folks in Holly Springs and Marshall County, they will be more special.
That’s because the Collins-Hurdle VFW Post 5697 and the Holly Springs Chamber of Commerce are working hard to bring the American Veterans Traveling Tribute to the city. The scheduled dates are November 26-December 1.

The great debate
Here at the newspaper, we have been inundated with calls, emails, faxes, etc., about the presidential debate at Ole Miss Friday.
You’d think there had never been a presidential debate around here before... (that’s a joke!)
The closest thing to seeing a president that I’ve actually come, is when Lyndon B. Johnson came through Memphis, Tenn., on a train. I was around 15ish and, along with several friends, we were downtown near the railroad tracks and Confederate Park on the river. The only memorable impression I have of that day is that Susan slid off the stone fence and tore her red plaid, pleated, skirt on one of the railings.

It’s just me, please don’t pick up the toys
It is interesting to observe how house styles have changed through the generations. Right now, it is “in” to have a fancy stainless steel kitchen with a Viking stove large enough to feed a battleship and a bathroom with a sunken tub that would do justice to the caesars of Rome.
Letters to the Editor
Agreeing with Sid Salter:
After reading the ‘Good Ol’ Boys Syndicate’ by Sid Salter in the Sept. 11 paper I was kind of shocked that he didn’t put his neo-conservative right-winged spin on the presidential debates starting in Oxford.
