  • Thanksgiving was special for the Enochs family this year.  My brother, Ronald Grenko from Albuquerque, New Mexico, came to spend the holiday with us.  It was the first time we had been together for Thanksgiving in many years, and his first visit to Philadelphia since my daughter's wedding.  Although it took him four hours to arrive in Jackson from Atlanta, due to mechanical problems with the first plane, we were so happy to finally see him! He was pleased to meet Boo, who immediately adopted him as another person to love, and gave him many doggy kisses.

  • Education skills of the soldiers of the ten companies of the 11th Mississippi Infantry Regiment in the Civil War varied greatly, which can be illustrated by letters written to the home folks and in their personal diaries. Excerpts from these two letters and one diary are perfect examples: Private Leander Huckaby, farmer, Company E, Prairie Guards, Crawfordsville, Mississippi; Private Charles A. Ridout, school teacher, Company D, Neshoba Rifles, Philadelphia, Mississippi and First Lieutenant William H. Peel, farmer, Company C, Prairie Rifles, Okolona, Mississippi.

  • Members of the JOY Group from East Philadelphia Baptist Church celebrated Thanks-giving early on Nov. 10 in the church's fellowship hall.  

    A traditional Thanksgiving feast was served to all of those attending.  Juanita Haggard did a beautiful job decorating the tables. They looked lovely.  The food was delicious and everyone enjoyed both the food and the fellowship.

  • In August 1944, Staff Sergeant Sara Hillman of the Woman’s Army Corps visited the Isle of Capri, Italy. In late December of that year, the brown-haired and brown-eyed daughter of Mr. and Mrs. G. J. Hillman, relived in words her dream holiday, from “somewhere in Italy”: “My vacation on the Isle of Capri was the most wonderful I have ever spent. This island is a place of enchantment and all the reports of the people who have been there before do not present a true picture – you just have to be there to know what it is like.
  •  Mississippi’s outdoor sportsmen should not let the thrill of the hunt exceed their good judgement when it comes to safety.

    Negligence and carelessness from getting in a hurry are common causes for hunting accidents.  Wildlife sports seasons are in full swing across Mississippi. Deer season with guns runs from Nov. 19 until Dec. 1 and again from Dec. 16 through Jan. 18. Primitive weapon season lasts from Dec. 2 until Dec. 15 and resumes Jan. 19 until Jan. 31. Other species in season at various times as the New Year approaches include bobwhite quail, rabbit, squirrel, doves and ducks.
