On the road once again
It’s one of the wildest times of the year here at your community newspaper.
Not only are we trekking here and there to give our Marshall County basketball teams the best coverage possible, but we’re also working on the annual Profile Edition and doing the regular tasks too – like covering news, selling advertising, designing pages and so forth and so on.
Close to Nowhere
Hi-ho, hi-ho, it’s off to the doctor I go
• I might have mentioned once or twice that I’ve been sick with bronchitis since before Thanksgiving. OK, I’ve whined a lot about it, but...
After antibiotics and wonderful cough syrup that put me right to sleep, I thought I was getting better. At a routine visit to Dr. Hawkins though, she said, “I can still hear your bronchitis.”
Letter to The Editor
To the Editor:
Which of the candidates for mayor of Holly Springs has the will and/or the power to solve the following problem?
Someone needs to get the time adjusted on the traffic light at the corner of Rust Avenue and Memphis Street.
I have talked to both Kelvin Buck and André DeBerry about this ridiculous situation. The waiting time for a green light when turning left from Rust Avenue to go downtown is longer than any traffic light I have ever encountered — perhaps double the time.
People are frequently dealing with this humiliating, unfair and exasperating state of affairs by cutting through the service station on the corner. Obviously this creates a traffic hazard.
This long traffic light is a disgrace, causing unfair hardship to anyone on Rust Avenue.
If, as we are told, it is something that only the Mississippi Department of Transportation can remedy, that only highlights the question: Which candidate for mayor can accomplish a solution?
