I enjoyed life on the road Friday and Saturday – following Marshall County basketball teams.
Bill Stone and I covered the Marshall Academy Patriots Friday night, left after the game, spent the night in Jackson, covered the H.W. Byers Lady Lions Saturday afternoon and then drove back to Grenada for the Pats’ title game Saturday night.
Close to Nowhere
Tribute to Mrs. Dale
When I first began working at The South Reporter, I had no idea how many people I’d meet that would have such an impact on how I view life.
Two of those people are now gone -- Henderson Milan, who wrote the Holly Springs news for The South Reporter (for 72 years) passed away in December of 2009, and Monday, Feb. 27, 2012, Dale Hollingsworth passed away.
Mrs. Hollingsworth wrote the Potts Camp News for around 30 years. Mary Minor and I weren’t exactly sure, since “forever” wasn’t right. But I trust Mary’s judgment, so about 30 is good!
The Preacher’s Corner
Imagine St. Paul’s epistles as a text...
Nobody could get more writing on a penny postcard than my Auntie Fran. She would fill the regular message area, then she would write around the margins of the card, intruding into the area reserved for the address. Then she would turn the card over and write on the picture side, usually comments on what she and Uncle Bill had seen — they traveled the world in their 70+ years of marriage. You simply cannot perform such feats with emails, texts, and tweets.

The family of the late Harold “Bully” Palmer would like to thank The South Reporter, Supervisor District 5 Ronnie Bennett, the Marshall County Board of Supervisors, Administrator Larry Hall, Sheriff Kenny Dickerson and the family and friends who attended the road dedication in memory of Harold “Bully” Palmer on Jan. 20. This was a wonderful meeting and was appreciated by the family.
Thanks to all,
