No beach; that’s fine
It was a brief spring break trip but a much-needed one.
Activities ranged from college baseball to collecting beaver-made walking sticks.
Close to Nowhere
My mother’s sewing machine
Last week, I rambled a while about learning to sew on my mother’s sewing machine and how it had been stored in a paint shed for probably 15 years -- from the time my mother passed away until my sister gave me the machine a few months before she passed away.
Not impressed with first Public Service Commission hearing
I attended my first Public Service Commission (PSC) hearing last week. I was not impressed.
Because power companies have monopolies, the PSC is there to protect the consumer. But that’s not what I witnessed. Instead, PSC commissioner Leonard Bentz seemed irritated at some of the citizens who showed up to protest the new rate hikes precipitated by the new $3.7 billion Kemper lignite plant.
Letter to The Editor
A big thank you to the many volunteers in helping with the Mardi Gras party for Byhalia Beautiful projects. You are so kind, generous and have a giving heart.
You make a difference in the success of the Byhalia Area Chamber of Commerce. We offer our sincere appreciation and thanks. Please feel welcome to help at any of the upcoming events.
If you are not receiving the quarterly Chamber Communicator or our email blasts, please let us know and we will include you on the mailing list. Join us at www.facebook.com/byhaliachamber for regular updates.
On behalf of the BACC, I thank our businesses and board members for the donations for the silent auction and for the many areas that it takes to make an event successful. You continue to give and support. Joyce Bowen at Reach Adult building provided a grand place to hold an event. She and her staff were a delight to work with. The Taste of the Chamber was better than ever. Appreciation goes to A&B Distributing, Piggly Wiggly, Subs, Etc., Seafood Junction, Moonlight BBQ, Whistle Stop Cafe, Clancy’s Cafe, COSTCO and Thistledome Honey Suckle Society.
A good time was had by all as The X-Citers entertained with Byhalia’s own Gene Sisk at the keyboards.
Thank you to The South Reporter and Pigeon Roost News staff for assistance in promoting the BACC’s mission to improve the Marshall County area.
“Those that can, do. Those that can do more, volunteer.”
