BILLY McCORD: As I see it

I trust each of you have gotten a shower or two this week which is wonderful for making grass grow. At our home in Bruce we received 4.1 inches of rain from Thursday through Saturday morning. I mowed our back yard just before the rain started and had I not done so our back yard […]

My this has been a busy week-end for me.  All the things I usually do were compounded by the 23rd Annual Sawmill Festival in Bruce. Don’t misunderstand me it is not that I did not enjoy the Festival because I very much did.  I have been a part of the Festival because of my involvement […]

Many of my readers continually ask if I had it to do over again would I enter the field of education as my profession. My answer has always been and is “You bet.” The 31 years in education were wonderful years. I have always believed they were planned for me by God. After all it […]

It was written by Ms. Jackie Everett, Secretary to the Director of Admissions, Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College, Jackson County, Mississippi. The e-mail came to me under the heading “A Testimony Worth Sharing.” I believe it is worth sharing and […]

BILLY McCORD: As I see it

We have had some cold weather lately and I for one look forward to warmer days. I cannot count the times that snow has been predicted for us and until Saturday morning we had missed it. Our “dusting” was light everywhere except the handicapped ramp that helped me into the house when I came home […]

BILLY McCord: As I See It

I thank each of you who have asked about my health recently. While visiting with a man I know quite well, he startled me when he said, “In only a few years, newspapers will be no more.” Almost in the same breath he said, “In only a few years, there will be no Post Office […]

BILLY McCord: As I See It

Having been born and raised in Calhoun County, I should be prepared to see about anything. I have seen both black and brown large cats (not house cats), timber wolves and recently a single bald eagle. As I was making my way from Bruce to Shady Grove for our 9 a.m. service, I was stopped […]

BILLY McCORD: As I See It

I do my best to write a column that will have some interest to the readers but mainly some humor that will at least make the readers as well as the columnist smile. Today, as I got up and took an insulin shot and another one after lunch, I decided that I was going to […]

BILLY McCORD: As I see it

The weather is absolutely beautiful, marred only by having to move the clocks back one hour this morning. I do not like the time change at all because it provides too much darkness as far as I am concerned. I realize that it may be because I am getting old and grouchy. Even if that […]
