Clydesdale treats Guard families
For the second year in a row, the Holly Springs/Hernando National Guard families were treated to a Christmas dinner, fun and gifts by lots of volunteer efforts and donations from corporate sponsors and everyday folks.
Last Christmas the Guardsmen were at the celebration. This year only a couple were in attendance because they have been deployed since spring to Iraq.
The big event for the children, wives, mothers and fathers of the Guardsmen was a project of the Clydesdale Christmas Store and hosted by the Collins-Hurdle VFW Post 5697. A year seems to have done a lot for the children who seemed more in acceptance that their fathers were away. They enjoyed face paintings, balloons, and a magic show and dinner before sitting on Santa’s knee.
Thefts on rise; be on watch
With the coming of the Christmas season and also with a terribly depressed economy, Sheriff Kenny Dickerson urges residents to keep an eye out for their neighbors’ homes and report any suspicious vehicles or individuals immediately to 911.
R.C. Anderson received plenty of support and encouragement as a child.
And for more than 32 years he’s been giving that back as an adult through his work with schools.
City leaders order street, sidewalk study
The Holly Springs Board of Aldermen authorized a study of the total needs for street and sidewalk improvements at the December 1 board of aldermen meeting.
IMS Engineers, consultant on the Memphis Street and Martin Street projects, will provide the comprehensive study at a retainer fee of $20,000.
Mayor Andre’ DeBerry said a projected cost to repair all sidewalks, build new ones in areas that do not have them, and to repair all major streets and important side streets was estimated by the utility department to cost about $6.1 million several years ago and he thinks it could cost $7 million now.
