Officials explain disaster program
Experts with the Federal and Mississippi Emergency Management Agencies (FEMA, MEMA) recently visited Holly Springs and explained the rules and procedures for obtaining disaster relief funds.
The funds can be used to pay for infrastructure damages following a flood in May that washed out culverts and damaged roads in Marshall County.
With the Marshall County Relay For Life scheduled for this Friday and Saturday in Holly Springs, the race picked up momentum last week to raise funds before the big night.
Tropical Thunder, the Marshall County Sheriff’s Office team, played “Jail and Bail” and got lots of laughs Tuesday and Wednesday last week by setting up a temporary “jail” on the south lawn of the courthouse. The brightly painted “jail” was temporary quarters for lots of local celebrities who were served “warrants” by their friends who wanted to see them get what they deserved. Anyone who was taken to “jail” had to arrange for his or her “bail” at $25 cash bond.
City takes up several messes
The Holly Springs mayor and board of aldermen recently held a public hearing on the clean-up of lots and dilapidated houses. Four lots were up for consideration for action – at 238 West Park, 215 West Valley, one near 139 East Boundary and another at 461 Bonner, according to zoning administrator Felicia Autry.
Two face charges in drive-by shooting
Two people have been charged in connection with a drive-by shooting Saturday at Hill Top Grocery (formerly Davis and Son’s Grocery) in Chulahoma, according to sheriff Kenny Dickerson.
