Stiffer housing permits possible
With rapid development of subdivisions in some supervisor districts the last few years, more problems with flash flooding of houses are being reported, according to the Marshall County Board of Supervisors.
Thursday, Oct. 2, was a day of epiphany for at least one Holly Springs resident.
Sandra Holpe put out a fire to save a stranger’s house and the two came to know each other like Good Samaritans.
After spending two days at Alliance Hospital in Holly Springs recovering from smoke inhalation, Holpe was back home recovering and doing most of the daily activities she is used to doing. Last week she talked about what happened on a day of yard sale hopping.
“It seemed like fate had it this way,” she began.
