New Homes with Acreage in Senatobia MS
Just a short five mile drive east from the town of Senatobia MS is a neighborhood of new homes with acreage.  Rolling Oaks is a small development of less than 30 lots at the corner of Gravel Springs and Yellow Dog Rd. in Senatobia MS.  Yes...that's Yellow Dog Rd.  Not sure about the story behind that name.  I like to think that maybe someone who lived on that road many years ago had a loyal 4-legged companion, perhaps a Lab or Golden Retriver.

Senatobia MS Wedding Chapel In The Pinesby Pam SimpsonThe Kudzu Vine
Just a short 30 minute drive down I-55 from Memphis, you will find a beautiful wedding chapel tucked away in a pine grove in Senatobia MS. 
Chapel In The Pines opened in 2001 and can accomodate small indoor weddings with their log cabin wedding chapel and outdoor weddings on in their wisteria-covered outdoor gazebo.
 
 
They can pretty much handle all your needs from the wedding announcements, rehearsal dinner, ceremony, flowers, music, pictures, and reception.  They even have a minister.

Tate County MS Turns Out For Troop Send-Offby Pam SimpsonThe Kudzu Vine

 
 
 
 
 
The overcast skys couldn't keep the citizens of Tate County MS from turning out to support local troops on their way to redeployment in Iraq.  It was with a sense of pride and a few tears that Tate Countians bid 'God Speed' on Friday, May 1 to the National Guard 2-198th Combined Battalion.  

The Patriot Guard motorcycle group rode ahead of the convoy as an escort.              
 
  
The Senatobia Fire Dept. brought their ladder truck complete with an American flag on the … (0 comments)

Good News in Tate County MSby Pam SimpsonThe Kudzu Vine
There were several items of good news in Tate County, MS as reported by The Democrat this week.  We hear so much bad in the news - both in print and TV - that I thought it would be nice to share some good "goings on" for a change.
The U.S. News and World Report recognized our own Senatobia High Schoolas one of "America's Best High Schools".  Congratulations to all the faculty, administrators, and STUDENTS for this honor.  Apparently, researchers analyzed test score data, college preparation and Advanced Placement test data.  … (0 comments)
