Safe wishes to Stewart Skelton, who returns to duty in Iraq
Stewart Skelton from Holly Springs left last week from Hernando heading to Camp Shelby. He leaves behind his wife, Shaula, who is expecting their first child. He also has two other children, Britney and Courtney, who will miss him greatly. Stewart will most likely be on his way to Iraq when his baby arrives. Safe wishes go out to him!
Christopher and Jenny Cupp and daughter, Emma Grace, of Olive Branch, spent Mother’s Day with Becky Cupp.
Happy birthday wishes go out to Everette Stubbs, who celebrated Tuesday.
Next Tuesday, May 19, is a big day for all of us who live in Holly Springs - it is the runoff election. The voter turnout for the first election was poor. It was a beautiful day, so there was no reason why every registered voter was not at the Holly Springs Fire Department! Tuesday, May 19, is a very, very important runoff election for our city. The fate of our town rests on all of us - registered voters!
There are signs all over town for the different offices which have runoffs. If you think your vote does not count, you are wrong! Some elections will come down to that one vote - your vote. People like to complain - blaming one office or another for the short-comings in Holly Springs. As with anything, if you do not take part in the democratic process, you have no reason to gripe.
This is our town! There are plenty of families here now whose heritage in Holly Springs goes back generations. We need to feel pride in our city and do the right thing by voting. If you are a registered voter, please go to the Holly Springs Fire Department and cast your vote on Tuesday, May 19. This is a very important election for us. If you care about our city and the direction in which it is heading, I beg of you to go to the polls on Tuesday, May 19. If you are over the age of 18 and live in the city limits, you do have a vested interest in this city. Your vote does count! Let your voice be heard by casting your vote for the candidates who will help your city move forward and be a better place to live. We owe it to the generations who will come after us to try and make a change for the better!
