Hollandale News & Comments

We are happy to hear that the EPA through its Clean School Bus program has awarded nearly $ 1.6 Million to the Hollandale School District for the purchase of 4 all-electric buses and charging stations.  This is part of a program intended to clean up the air around schools and provide a safer/healthier environment for the students.  Congrats to the Hollandale School District on being selected for participation in this program.   They are  one of nearly 400 chosen around the country to participate.  This program entails $5 Billion in funding over a 5 year period with another round of funding set for 2023.

A little excitement in the Delta !  Believe it or not about 4:30 pm today (Jan 8, 2019) a 3.7 magnitude earthquake centered about 6 miles Northwest of Hollandale hit and lasted for a few seconds rattling dishes over a wide area.  We felt it in our office in Greenville, shaking our building, almost like a car hitting the structure.  Two quick shocks and it was over.  I heard that it was even felt  in Arkansas.  No damage was reported but a very unusual happening for the area.  Scientists believe the 'quake was caused by one of 5 underground volcanoes under the Delta, all within a few miles.  This one is called the Panther Burn Dome.  Who knew?







Landmark Lost!
Here is all that is left of Booth's Drug Store on the corner of Washington & Morgan!
It burned in the early hours of this morning. (Oct 30, 2012).
It has been in recent times a resale shop.
