Please, don’t litter
It seems like it’s getting worse.
I drive home, about a mile within the city limits of Holly Springs, and I see fast food sacks and fried chicken boxes in the middle of the street.
Close to Nowhere
Chicken pot pie revisited
• Both my brothers were coming to my house last Sunday, so I decided to make chicken pot pie again and this time, I wanted leftovers, so I was going to double the pans.
I cooked a smallish turkey, instead of chicken — I planned a big chicken pot pie!
The Preacher’s Corner
Bringing The Lord’s Prayer into the here and now
Lately at our church we have been discussing the Lord’s Prayer. Like so many things in the church it is the source of differences. Some say “debts;” others say “trespasses.” The old saying goes that if a Scotch Presbyterian can forgive a debt, then he can forgive any other trespass! Actually, debts comes from the King James version of the Bible, and it is one of the few passages from the King James — along with the 23rd Psalm that people know by heart. More’s the pity! Certainly the Lord’s Prayer is one of the few texts that Christian persons can recite together. In an era where memorization is in disdain, this is one of the passages, religious or secular, that the average person commits to memory. That being the case, I think wisdom has prevailed. The Lord’s Prayer is worth knowing.
Letter To The Editor
To the editor:
Congratulations to the organizers of the Holly Springs Farmer’s Market. Saturday’s event, on June 16, was an outstanding success. Gary Adams and his committee offered a great mix of vendors, entertainment, and refreshments to their customers. Chef Michael’s sample dishes using local vegetables inspired more than one person to try something new. It was a great way to visit with our friends and neighbors. Plan on attending next week and support our local farmers.
Holly Springs is fortunate to have many dedicated volunteers working to improve the looks of our community. The Main Street Committee is busy maintaining their landscaping project at the intersection of East College and Van Dorn. This is a hot and backbreaking job. Additional volunteers are always welcome.
The Master Gardeners of Marshall County, led by Lemon Phelps, recently started a landscaping project at the Department of Human Services. This is an ongoing project that is in its initial stage. Gardeners interested in becoming a Master Gardener can take the eight-week course which is given every February and March.
These are a few examples of citizens working to improve our community. There are others.
If you have a few hours to spare, offer your services to one of them and help improve the appearance of Holly Springs.
