Group of locals attend production of The Jersey Boys Sunday
Barbara Gilliam, Chelsey Gilliam, Brittney Tomlinson, Jill Tomlinson, Sarah Brigance, Ecky Leake, Barbara Pipkin, Jo Fleming, Betty Byrd, Betty Bailey, Lynn Shaw, Sandra and Amanda Beaver and Sandy Ray attended the theater production of The Jersey Boys Sunday afternoon at the Orpheum.

Happy birthday wishes go out to a fantastic former Marshall Academy basketball player (and really nifty human) who celebrated Wednesday. Many, many happy more to you!
Once again, the Marshall Academy Patriots faired well in the second phase of tournaments leading up to State. The teams, along with scores of fans and parents, travelled to Leake Academy last week and into the weekend. The Lady Patriots brought home the runner-up trophy, falling short to Leake Academy, and the Patriots were champions once again. This week, the teams travel to Indianola. Good luck!

Mississippi Shop offers local works
We have magnificent new hand-made post cards of the Episcopal Church made here in Holly Springs by Jim Dunworth. They are works of art and are on sale at the Marshall County Historical Museum in the Mississippi Shop. There will be no reprints and we have only a few.
Our books should be on your library shelf as all of them have a local connection. One of the books is “The Monkey Verses,” a book of poetry written by local Jim Dunworth. It is fun reading akin to Ogden Nash; don’t take it too seriously.
Also for sale is the Window Series to the History of Marshall County and Holly Springs, each with three hundred indigenous recipes in the back.
Chesley Smith’s book on her childhood growing up in Holly Springs is available, as is my book on growing up in Holly Springs, which were newspaper columns that I wrote about the adventurous stories that happened here. The museum is open five days a week from 10 a.m.-4:30 p.m. and by appointment on Saturdays.
“Green.” Let’s paint the town green (my favorite color) at all seasons but the cold of winter, which is kind of drab (not my favorite season).
Every one of us should plant an evergreen tree in our yard and along the streets so that our town will be beautiful.
A man came in the museum a while back and he was writing a book on greens. I told him he had come to the right place as my favorite food was turnip greens and I’m sure it was Elvis Presley’s also as it is everybody’s in the South. They are full of chlorophyll.
Now, chlorophyll is made of selenium, which is a cancer preventative and it’s just smart to take selenium everyday and avoid all that pain and trouble. Of course, you would need a boxcar full of greens a day, so buy a little pill at the store and take it as a supplement everyday.
Everybody in this world during my lifetime is supposed to plant a tree (at least one), have a baby (at least one), and write a book (as many as you want). So, this is my dissolution on “green.”
Something else I like is the green stuff that makes the world go ’round. It helps oil the wheels and makes life easier.
Holly Springs made the New York Times twice last week! A new discovery of Faulkner material is coming out of Holly Springs from Eddie Fransicso, Edgar and Ruth’s only child.
Now he is Dr. Francisco with several college degrees, cum laude and all that incredible stuff. He’s grown up to be great while we weren’t looking.
