Bikers, blues on tap for Thursday downtown
The third annual Bikers Night Out in Blues Alley is set to kick off this Thurday after a rainout last week.
The event will be held each Thursday night through September 27 in downtown Holly Springs.
The Bikers Night Out in Blues Alley, which showcases local entertainers, is sponsored by Holly Springs Main Street.
Hours are 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the north side of the courthouse. It is free to the public.
County burn ban lifted by board of supervisors
A burn ban, in effect since June 29, was lifted Monday by the Marshall County Board of Supervisors.
Emergency management coordinator Hugh Hollowell recommended the ban be lifted because general rains had blanketed the county in the last week cutting back on fire danger.
Supervisors said firefighters were busy over the July 4 week and weekend putting out fires but no losses of structures or property were reported during the period. Weather was hot and ground cover was dry.
Areas of the county received from one to two inches of rain over the last week, much of it falling in hour-long showers that soaked thirsty soils.
Hollowell said the burn ban lift would help residents.
“Folks are starting to burn anyway,” he said. “Let’s make it legal.”
New board in place for Main Street Chamber
