How to cook turkey
It’s turkey time.
Thanksgiving is probably my favorite holiday – largely because of the food.
Close to Nowhere
We give thanks
I visited at my daughter’s church Sunday and the preacher, Doug Bell, did not preach a Thanksgiving sermon. He even mentioned that he was not a “topical” preacher. And then, the last Bible verse he read and used was “Jonah 2:9 – With a song of thanksgiving…”
Some years there is more to be thankful for than others. Yet, there is always something for which I’m thankful
The Preacher’s Corner
I give thanks for our wonderful variety of veggies
Thanksgiving is a time for all those wonderful, traditional vegetables and fruits. Sweet potatoes, green beans, turnips, asparagus casserole. I have had a particular craving for pumpkin pie. I usually have only one piece per season, but this year I might have two.
Asbury celebrates 144th anniversary
By Dr. Sylvester W. Oliver Jr.
Asbury United Methodist Church will celebrate homecoming weekend, November 27-28.
A century and 44 years ago, Asbury Methodist Episcopal Church was founded as the first African-American church in Holly Springs. The church grew from the travails of slavery and a just war to become a prominent influence in the city’s religious community.
Letters To The Editor
Thanks Mr. Willie:
On a recent visit to my parents’ house in Red Banks, I noticed that their road sign was missing, so I contacted Willie Flemon, their District 1 Supervisor, and he told me that he would get a new sign ordered and get it back up.
Within about a week and a half on another visit, I noticed that the new road sign was up. On behalf of myself and my family, we would like to say “thank you” to Mr. Willie for his quick action in this matter and his dedication to this county.
Help and prayers:
I grew up in Holly Springs. I have something I would like to have in the paper. Benny Woods, who has worked for the city for years, has a daughter in Baptist East Hospital in Memphis, Tenn., with AML leukemia. She has been there for about a month.
They need all the help and prayer they can get. His wife also had to have surgery on her heart Wednesday. They are having to go back and forth every day. His daughter is only 23.
They also need blood donors. Thank you for any help that anyone can do.
