Work day – a good day
The small barn out back was leaning a lot more this time.
A couple of Saturdays ago, we had a clean-up day at my mother’s house on Highway 278 between Hamilton, Ala., and Haleyville, Ala.

“0-16” in a weekend
I have a new great-great-niece! Evangeline Ailey was born Friday. She’s the first granddaughter for my niece Sister (Dawn) and the excitement has been palpable!
My great-nephew Blake and Sarah have been expecting Evy for the required nine months. It’s flown by for me. Not for Sister or Sarah though. Sister’s suffered almost as much as Sarah.
National Volunteer Week
Mississippi has a proud legacy of community service and giving back to those in need. National Volunteer Week 2012, which began on Sunday, April 15, is a chance to recognize our many local heroes and the potential each person has to make a positive and lasting difference.
I have seen many burning bushes
We were sitting around the dinner table going through the usual conversation routines. “So how was your day?” wife Ginny asked.
I shrugged and gave my usual, “Fine. Nothing new,” when 15-year-old son John chimed in: “We saw a tree limb on fire.”
Letter To The Editor
To Mayor Andre’ DeBerry:
I am so disappointed in you concerning the city employees. We the people of Holly Springs are in the 7,000 or more population; that is many more than the five on the board.
I see our city workers doing their job for the people and doing a fine job, and it hurts me for you to say they work at the will and the pleasure of the board as if the people of Holly Springs do not matter.
What you do in the board meeting is your business.
But let’s give honor to our city workers doing their job to take care of the people of Holly Springs and not just the five on the board.
