‘Old man,’ new media
I’ve been blessed over the years to build a network of newspaper friends throughout Mississippi and even the United States.
Last week I added another.
Chris Rhoades, with Enterprise Publishing in Blair, Neb., visited Holly Springs and The South Reporter for a couple of days. He also conducted a workshop for the Mississippi Press Association on Friday at the University of Mississippi in Oxford.
Close to Nowhere
April is a lovely month, generally speaking. Trees, flowers, weeds, pollen, all bloom and spread their cheer, especially throughout the South.
It’s a really important month at the Jones’ household too.
Pop and I were married April 24, 1970 — Thursday, April 24, 2014, we’ll have been married 44 years.
Sweetness, a word that means so many things
It can be an endearment, a description of character, the flavor of a food, a general term of something that pleases us in a gentle way and somehow soothes our soul.
Way back in the early part of the 1900s gentle, compliant and charming young ladies were often nicknamed “Sweetness,” for they were.
Letter to the Editor
Thank you to all who supported benefit
A very special thanks to the community for all the support given at the yard sale held on April 5 and the big benefit April 12 for Ralph Doxey Jr. at the VFW.
Thanks to everyone who donated, bought food, participated in the poker run or purchased auction items.
Both events were a huge success.
