Anita Barnett, Amanda and Rosamond and Frances Gresham vacation in Panama City, Fla.
Sandor Viradi and his band, Del Rose, took Holly Springs by storm Saturday night. The group performed at The Service Station and rocked the house! There was a large crowd there to support them. Del Rose plays a lot of their original songs and is known in the Southaven area. Certainly looking forward to more out of this great group!
Anita Barnett and children, Amanda and Rosamond, and Frances Gresham just returned from a relaxing vacation in Panama City, Fla. While there, they got to swim with sting rays, who had made their way inland.
Charlie Douglas and children, Caroline and Chandler, of Starkville, were the Saturday guests of his parents, Leigh and Dick Douglas.

Museums have interesting guests
The most interesting places in town are the museums and we have the most interesting guests. Right now we have a lady and her husband from Chicago. She is the curator of the Chicago Art Institute and is so knowledgeable and so nice.
We had visitors last week from 10 states and England. A very attractive couple came in who have moved home after being gone for eons. They are the Carpenters, both handsome and beautiful. They have chosen Early Grove as a place to live. She loves magnolias and will name her new house something connected with magnolias.
Last week one of our guests was Indian Chief Levi Colbert’s descendent from Oklahoma. Levi was the Indian chief over what is now West Tennessee and North Mississippi. When it became time to give up his homeland, he balked and said he didn’t want to move. He had heard that warring Indian tribes were attacking the newcomers to Oklahoma and it wasn’t safe. However, he was on horseback one day and something spooked his horse causing it to rare up. Levi, expert horseman that he was, fell to the ground breaking his neck and killing him. With resistance gone, the Indians took the “Trail of Tears” to Oklahoma.
A few years ago, one of the Oklahoma Chickasaws gave us a program at the museum and told us about the folklore and stories from her family. Her great-great-grandfather had been on the Trail and although he was a small boy, what he remembered was the utter quietness. They walked silently through the woods. They were a people with broken hearts leaving their homeland. He remembered being on a log raft crossing the great Mississippi River.
A man came in once and told us that he was from the royal Indians and his ancestors went to Oklahoma on the train (boxcars). The Indians weren’t known for their musical ability down through history, but on this trek to Oklahoma, when they left Marshall County a black couple named Willys joined them. On the trail they wrote “Swing Low, Sweet Chariot.” The exodus began in 1832, with the Treaty of Pontotoc and the boxcars were used in 1842. Then it was over.
At the museum we have a new mural on the wall of Holly Springs places and it is wonderful. In it, it has our museum, Cedarhurst, because that is where the artist attended kindergarten with Mrs. Belk as her teacher, the post office, because she went there every day, the Church of the Yellow Fever Martyrs, and the colorful depot with its imposing spires.
The artist is Irene Young, daughter of Nellie Mae Moore of Holly Springs and Jesse Young of Red Banks. Irene lives in the county at Warsaw.
I was aghast when discovering the terrible language some people use on Facebook. They evidently don’t realize that they are exposing themselves as saying, “This is my character. Look at how smart I am by using this shocking language.” Years later this quote could be used to show future generations how illiterate this person was. And even worse, it can be shown to that person’s ggggg-grandchildren to show how stupid their ancestor was and to point out that their vocabulary was so small, they had to intersperse it with vulgarities. It’s shocking that this can be on public air. It should be against the rules. Facebook should also ban unAmericanism and racial hatred.
A word of advice to everyone: be careful with your credit card (you don’t need but one), your Social Security number, and your other credentials, because thieves are waiting for you to be careless, especially as you get older and are prey for bad people.
Come visit us, we are open six days a week.
