Planning 2012 profile
A new year means the newspaper staff starts thinking about its annual profile edition.
It has become a welcomed tradition, and a keepsake each year, that promotes Marshall County, its people and its places.

Daughter on “self-destruct!”
• It’s well known that I tend to be clumsy and trip and bang myself up frequently. As a matter of fact, last Thursday, I slid across the front porch on my hands and knees, chasing a dog who was chasing a cat. And yes, my arthritic hips really hurt!
For a change though, and a strange change at that, it’s daughter Dana who is now in peril of self-destructing.

Are you addicted to the Weather Channel? Check symptoms!
Recently some folks I know who live out in the country acquired a satellite dish. They were very impressed with all the channels they could receive and were generally enjoying this new luxury which they had uncharacteristically allowed themselves.
A grandson from Atlanta, sophisticated in the ways of the world, stopped by to visit and inspected the new dish, carefully placed in a flower bed in the front yard (so as to have the necessary southern exposure to sweep the sky for signals). He shook his head, walked back in the house, and pronounced the situation “a case of ‘high-tech-rednecks.’”
Letters To The Editor
Big ‘thank you’
This is to say a big “Thank You” to the Clydesdale Christmas organization for the wonderful meal they fed the National Guard troops (current and retired) and their families on December 10.
This organization does so much and so many times their job is a thankless one. We want them to know how much we appreciate all the hard work each one did to give us this special treat.
May God bless each one of you who are a part of Clydesdale Christmas.
Jimmy and Gloria Fortner
The Faithful Few Club would like to thank everyone who helped us with our program this year. We gave out presents to the needy in Byhalia.
On New Year’s Day we all have dinner in the home of Lillion Hughes.
Now that many of our local “heroes,” who have/are serving in Iraq are coming home or leaving the active war zones, we’d like to welcome them home. If you’d like to help welcome home our military personnel, please get their names to The South Reporter for the new list.
