Taking in the Titans
My football-filled weekend wrapped up with a road trip Sunday to Nashville, Tenn.
Good friend Don Brooks sent me a text Friday – “Want to do the Titans-Broncos game Sunday?”
My head quickly went to thinking about everything I needed to get done over the weekend. But I decided, “Surely, I can get most of that stuff finished on Saturday.”
Close to Nowhere
Rare, solid black ...
I made the most amazing discovery about my long-haired Chihuahua last week at “The Big One” flea market at the Ag-Center in Memphis, Tenn.
We’ve had Foxie for about three years or so now. She’d been running up and down Hwy. 310 for a couple of weeks. One of our neighbors, on the other end of our section of 310, had tried to catch her for a week or so – maybe that’s why Foxie had traveled down to our end of the highway.
Senator Wicker reaffirms support for Israel
Thousands of Mississippians have been inspired to journey across the world to visit the Holy Land.I have seen this profound calling firsthand when meeting church groups from our state during my own visits there. Their pilgrimages of faith and history are shared by more than 3 million people around the globe each year.
Reserve your ticket to fund-raiser
By CHELIUS CARTER
Preserve Marshall County & Holly Springs, Inc., (PMCHS) has been diligently pulling together all the moving parts needed in moving historic Chalmers Institute along towards a real project.
There is scarcely a person I have talked with in Holly Springs about this project who has not expressed some level of relief that the years of frustration at numerous efforts to preserve this remarkably historic building, and that PMCHS has managed to get real traction. Know that this project is going to happen and if you are of the many who have wondered if anything was ever going to be done about old Chalmers – that day is over. If you are of the number that have said, “I’ve been reading about this project and have been meaning to send something to you to help out.” If that sounds familiar, then this is your time to “step up to the plate,” as our dear departed friend Al Hale would have put it.
Some people aren’t from New York
(Editor’s Note – Roderick Senter and wife Carolyn from Cincinnati, Ohio, came by the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce office last week. Marshall County Historical Museum is preparing an exhibit on the doctors of the area. His father, Dr. Curtis Senter, was a rural doctor here. Roderick wrote this.)
My name is Roderick Senter and I spent most of my life on the faculty of the Psychology Department of the University of Cincinnati.
How a small town boy from Byhalia wound up in Cincinnati is a long story, but I’d just like to point out that there weren’t many other “small town boys” there with me; in fact, I can only think of one other. Most of my colleagues were from cities, predominately, New York.
