Profile - team effort
If you heard a big sigh of relief coming from The South Reporter office last week, it was because the Profile Edition hit the streets.
Our biggest newspaper of the year is always a really big accomplishment for our staff.
Close to Nowhere
My mother’s sewing machine
I learned to sew by osmosis. I cannot remember not watching my mother sew on her old treadle Singer sewing machine that she’d had electrified.
The summer before I was in sixth grade she let me make some of my blouses. I think I made three, all sleeveless, that buttoned up the back. I’m guessing she did the buttonholes because her sewing machine did not do anything but sew straight and backwards. And I certainly did not do handstitched buttonholes!
The Preacher’s Corner
Dial-a-prayer was a huge phenomenon ‘in the day’
A fact few may know is that in my first ministerial work beyond my home congregation, I served as summer student minister in the church that sponsored the very first Presbyterian dial-a-prayer ministry. It was the Presbyterian Church in Dyersburg, Tenn., in 1976.
Letters to The Editor
We were very encouraged to read the front page article in the March 7 edition, “Supervisors want roads cleaned up.”
We have been asking for something to be done about this for the last four years and think the use of inmates is an answer to this growing problem of litter.
We try to keep our road clean in front of our property near Warsaw, but don’t get much co-operation from anyone else.
We sure hope the supervisors can get the MDOT to help. Marshall County will be a nicer place to live if they do!
Mr. and Mrs. B.R. Pierce
Thank you once again! The South Reporter’s Profile Edition is an excellent publication of journalism. The advertising was tastefully done and informative.
We appreciate your work day to day, week to week to meet deadlines in providing Marshall County its news, calendar activities, sports and features.
I encourage everyone to subscribe and receive it in the mail on Thursdays. The Pigeon Roost News is good and handy but all the news is covered in The South Reporter. So proud you are here!
Thank you for bringing us several copies to share with our visitors and those inquiring about the Marshall County area. Keep up the great teamwork!
