Greeting our visitors
It was all positive for this golf cart driver Saturday at the Hummingbird Migration Celebration.
It was my second year to help during the event at Strawberry Plains Audubon Center. In 2010, I was directing traffic. This time around I was driving guests from their vehicles parked in the fields to admissions.
Close to Nowhere
Deep fried butter?
• My granddaughter’s dad, Jason, has moved from South Dakota to Birmingham, Ala., which makes it much easier for him to get over to see the girls.
Saturday, he picked up Meredith and her friend Grace (Remy was at a fossil club meeting with her mom). He took the 15-year-old girls to the Delta Fair at the Agricenter in Germantown, Tenn.
Wicker says America will not waver in fight against terrorism
The terrible attacks on September 11, 2001, changed the landscape of war as we knew it. The tragic loss of life on our soil came at the hands of an unconventional enemy – unbound by national borders and capable of inflicting devastating harm with only a handful of zealots.
Free is good and it’s even better in the ‘true’ South
Some say the best things in life are free, and in Mississippi, there are plenty of things to see and do for free.
Here is Holly Springs, in addition to the Roy Wilkins Collection, many may not know of the impressive collection of art and artifacts from all over the world found in the library of Rust College. Staff members have placed on display masks, clothing, statues and photos that leave visitors stunned. If the collection in, what they call, “The International Room” doesn’t impress you then venture across the street to the Beckley Center to view a second room filled with artifacts. Best of all, all are completely free to view!

Chamber president Leah Grant chaired the event and did a good job pulling the entertainment and all the venues together. I appreciate Jan Sisk and Doris Lee of the chamber staff and for always giving 100 percent.
The praise band, Prayznmor of Byhalia United Methodist Church, provided the sound equipment and joined with Graham Road, Papa Don McMinn and the Davide House Band to entertain the crowd.
I would like to thank you for attending and covering the event with an article and picture. Your support of Marshall County in so many areas of interest is noticeable and appreciated.
