Hectic but happy day
It was a sleepless weekend for John Danley, head coach of the Byhalia High School football team. But there were reasons to celebrate, too.
Early Friday, he was at the hospital. At about 7:30 a.m., his wife Alicia gave birth to their baby girl, Khloe.

• Voting Tuesday morning was a bit different than usual. I had to stand in line, even at 7 a.m. Turned out, the poll workers were given the wrong key and couldn’t get in the community center until the correct key was brought.
It was interesting. Like many “newcomers” to a community — we’ve only lived in Laws Hill for 27 years now, I know most of my neighbors by sight, but not by name. When your neighbors are sometimes a half mile away or more, it’s hard to chat over a fence or across a yard.
When God puts you to work, you go
Recently, I left my wife and three children and traveled to the other side of the world. My destination was Malawi, the “warm heart of Africa,” the fourth poorest country in the world.
Letters to The Editor
What a wonderful name it is, Praise Night. My wife and I looked forward to the fellowship and praising the Lord on those Tuesday nights in October on the courthouse lawn.
Blacks and whites came together to praise God and uplift the precious name of Jesus.
What a great thing Kevin Thomas did by putting this event together for Holly Springs and Marshall County – all the work he did, getting the singers and musicians together, they truly made it Praise Night.
This is a positive thing for Holly Springs. I hope it will continue.
Everyone who came, I’m sure, enjoyed it. Those who didn’t attend truly missed a blessing. God bless you, Kevin.
