HAYES FAMILY LETTERS To The Editor 22 January 1973 Go,eta, Italy Dear Mr. Lewis, I just wanted to send a note .long with my subscription pay- ent to tell you how much I :mjoy receiving The Woodville 2epublican each ,woek. I have been receiving a copy inch week for over two years, mmpl]ments 'of my+ folks in Wocdville, but I suppo:e they Friday, February 16, 1973 9 Would You Beheve...... Mr. Paul's Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Supplier, the Lewis Grocer Co., of Indianola, Miss., hauls trailer loads of fresh Mississippi Fryers to Florida and California Markets each week. These same ' trucks pick up Fruits and Vegetables purchased : T  decided hat since I'm hooked and selected now I should pay for my own ubscription. Hence. the reason ':or my payment being late. An overflight on my part I'm afraid. Seriously though, I do thor- oughly enjoy receiving the hometown paper each week. I've een living in Italy aow for two and one-half years and it is one of the few links I have with home, outside of. .an occasional letter from my family in Wood- ville or my wife's family in Lib- erty. It helps keep us up to date on local happenings and issues of in+terest and, I must confess, I often get downright homesick when reading about the supetrb hunting and fishing in, the cradle of Southern civilization. Wilkinson County. The bi:gges,t single advantage though is that we are able to keep up with the local poli, tical +sce.e andsince bot.h the wife ,and I vote in Wilkinson County this is indeed a big help. We try to :stay abreast of local .happenings be- cause it +has been and is our ,des'ir to return to the Wood- ville area in a few years and make it our .home When I e- tire from the military my two children will be .ages 14 and 12 and I ca, n truthfully say that after living in many parts of the United States during e past twelve years I can't ,think of any place I would rather raise my 'hildren t,han in Wil- kinson County, Missls,:ippi. Once ,again. thaak you and best wishes from sunny Italy. I read about the illness in your family during the holidays and I trust all are be.tter now. .Richard MeCarstle Chief Warrant Officer United States Navy February 10 Dear Editor: This i.s in reference to Mrs. Tomm'e Jo Netterville's le.tter of last week, asking the Board of Supervisors to dto something to help clean up the litter, garbage and debris on the eoflnty road in her neighbor- hood. tefore the Board does anything that way PLEA, SE look at our Turnbull road. It's much closer t:o town and ten .tmes as filthy. It would seem .that ga,rbage is thrown out. of front doors instead of back ones -- but it may be that everyone .on thi end of the county uses it for their garbage disposal. Is vhere a law against usind county roads for dumping? If there is and it isn't being enorced, can't the citizens de- mand enforcem,snt? If there is no law, can't the citizens de- mand passage of one? There is no.thing we can do for our county  not additions to court- I houses, teacher',s pay raises. food stamps -- IOTHIIG -- that will add more .to a good whole- some life than clean su,rround- ings. And surely Lit is un,just .for those of us who vork at having a clean community to be pen- alized by .those who are ,too slovenly and too trifling to dis- pose of their filth. The Board of Supervisors, and the Board of Aldermen, m us,t face a re- sponsibility here. I suggest that one ox more special officers ,be hired to ,make arrests and collect MOVE TO HUNTSVILLE fines for littering. I'm sure that Mr. and Mrs. Cha.res H. Hayes the fines will more than pay t.he and, their two daughtens, Laura salaries of these officers. Yours fGr a clean community, Mrs. Marshall Tre.ppencahl P.S. Are we going to have that .tacky trailer and tool shed on the c,urthouse square during the Pilgrimage? .and Diana, left the first of this week for Huntsville, Ala., where Mr..Hayes has accepted a posi- .tton in research with Rrown En.glneeri, ng.

Last Thursday evening he was hon- ored by the fifth period Biology class of the Academy wi,th a farewell prty hel in the li- brary at which lhe cla'ss pre- sented him a ,beautiful shirt and handsome pen. BIRTHS February 13, 1973 Dear Editor: Would the Town of Woodville lJlese pat +the traffic light back in:o operation at .he inLtersec - tion of Main Street and Depot Street? The cars .and trucks parked in front of ,the cotr, thouse and in fron.t of :the Meat Market ,obstruct the view of a, ny, on- coming traffic.
