Batesville Magazine summer edition just a few days away

We’re anxiously awaiting for the summer edition of The Batesville Magazine to return from the printer. From your inquiries, we know that you are too. This edition will, hands-down, be the best yet. We kept cramming more good stuff into it, which delayed us getting it to the printer. And so on.

Want to read more about Ricky Harpole? You’ll enjoy Jason Mattox’s feature, “Who the Heck is Ricky Harpole?” Other features include “The Legend of Sam Vick, — the only man to ever pinch hit for Babe Ruth,” Emily Williams’ “A Horse of a Different Color” about Lee Garner’s Arena One, “Memories of Camp Como” by Billy Davis, a profile of Batesville educator Cathryn Hyde and “A History in the Hardwoods” about the historic home of Myrt and Vernetta Price, both by Rita Howell, and Myra Bean’s “Solid as a Rock” about one of Batesville oldest family-owned businesses.

And more. Columns by Taylor Ivy (The Beauty of Flip Flops) and Sherry Hopkins (Summer in Batesville). And still more.  

Then there is that curious story about “The McClamrock Affair” when the arrest of a Grenada lady for liquor possession in Panola County almost set off a trade war between Batesville and Grenada. Researched from Memphis to Grenada, the tales takes heretofore unrecorded twists and turns.

Just a few days away, we promise!
