Computer class to help with job applications
The WIN Job Center in Holly Springs will aid individuals who need help learning how to apply for jobs online, according to county supervisor George Zinn III.
He said online applications are becoming a requirement and that some companies will not let WIN Job Centers assist individuals making online applications for job openings.
Anyone who wants to sign up for basic computer classes so they can learn how to apply for any manufacturing or other job listing online is encouraged to go to the WIN Job Center in Holly Springs on Rust Avenue. Workers there will help the individual enroll in a basic computer class at the Regional Technology Center in Holly Springs.
Classes will be offered November 2-5 from 9 a.m. until 12 noon and again November 9-12 from 9 a.m. until noon.
If enough people request enrollment in these basic computer classes, the technology center will offer evening classes as well, Zinn said.
He said Toyota and some of its tier suppliers will not allow workers with the WIN Job Centers to help file an application for an individual. There may be other manufacturing companies and industries that also have the same requirement, he said.
There are computers available for use at the Regional Technology Center, the WIN Job Center and at the Marshall County libraries in Byhalia, Holly Springs and Potts Camp where individuals may go to file online applications.
Wreck at Hudsonville produces big blaze
Holly Springs Fire Department personnel took an hour or more to extinguish a fire at the intersection of Highway 313 and Highway 7 North near Hudsonville, according to fire chief Kenny Holbrook.
He said the driver of the car and the 18-wheeler were transported to Alliance HealthCare System with minor injuries while firefighters put out a blaze. The fire was caused when one of the fuel tanks on the truck was ruptured, spreading large amounts of diesel across the highway.
The truck, northbound at the time of the accident called in at 1:18 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 16, left the road and wound up on property owned by the Bolden family. The fire spread, encompassed the truck and caught farm implements and hay bales afire, Holbrook said, causing a smoke that could be seen seven miles away in Holly Springs.
Firefighters used foam to extinguish the blaze.
