Road trip to end holidays
Christmas wrapped up on New Year’s weekend.
We stretched it out, with Saturday, Jan. 2, being the best day for us to get together and celebrate with Pam’s family in Tennessee.
Close to Nowhere
Yes, it’s still the first week or so of January — but — Jane and I have already signed up for classes at the American Quilt Society quilt show in Paducah, Ky., the last week of April.
For those who don’t know — Jane, my boon traveling companion, and I go to the quilt show in Paducah every year. We began about seven or eight years ago and now are probably similar to addicts — nearly frantic waiting for April to get here again!
I may not like them, but I still give thanks for turnips
The year 1957 was a great time to be four. As it happened, that was the year I was deemed old enough to spend an extended vacation with my grandparents in Memphis. It was probably four or five days, but to me it was an eternity, and my grandparents, thrilled with the opportunity, were set to cater to my every whim.
Preventing nuclear-armed Iran remains priority
As the year 2009 ended, Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad dismissed a deadline from the United States and our allies on a United Nations deal to halt uranium enrichment, a key component in Iran’s nuclear program.
Letter To The Editor
the litter issue:
This letter is in support of the “Holly Springs is too pretty to litter” article and letter in the paper recently.
I, also, am appalled that people need to be reminded not to litter. Believe me, it crosses all races. This is not a racial issue; it is an environmental issue.
Every morning I am greeted with the night’s deposits of various beer cans, chip bags or the fast food sack of choice. Each evening after a day of work, there are more trash items littering the lawn, sidewalks, and street; and stop signs are especially popular dumping sites. The weekend littering is ridiculous.
In my opinion, littering shows utter ignorance and a lack of respect to the beauty of our town, and to God’s green Earth. It is 2010 — why do we (Holly Springs) not get it? Don’t litter! Respect the beauty of our town — please.
