Statewide burn ban until further notice
A statewide burn ban was issued by Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour last week. The declaration was made in an attempt to protect homes and forests.
The burn ban, which includes a ban on outdoor grilling, was necessary because of low humidity throughout the state and lack of rainfall for an extended period. The burn ban is in effect until further notice, according to the Mississippi Forestry Commission website.
A 600-acre fire near Madison a week ago caused concern. The brush fire was intentionally set, according to reports.
To monitor when burn bans are lifted, visit www.mfc.ms.gov.
A statewide burn ban in Louisiana was issued October 2, allowing private burning only with permission of local fire departments and local government. But the ban in Louisiana did not limit prescribed burning by agriculture and forestry.
Precinct moved for Nov. 2 general election
The 5 Holly Springs voting precinct, usually located at the Holly Springs National Guard Armory, has been moved for the November 2 general election up the road to the Shriners building, according to circuit clerk Lucy Carpenter.
The Shriners building is located on the right side of Highway 4 East and directly across the road from the old nursing home which is now a school.
Carpenter said the 5 Holly Springs precinct is being moved from the armory because the building is under complete renovation and will not be ready for occupancy by the Tuesday, Nov. 2, general election.
