Carrollton Utilities will flush fire hydrants on the City of Carrollton water system, Thursday, Oct. 13. Flushing will begin at 8 a.m. and be completed by 5 p.m.
Flushing of the hydrants is done each year at this time to remove all sediment in the mains and to make sure all hydrants are working properly. Carrollton Utilities suggest that laundry should not be washed while crews are flushing the hydrants as some staining of clothes could occur.

My friend, Sandy, told me when her grandson came over she prepared breakfast for dinner.
His reaction was quite surprising to her. He said it sounds awful to have breakfast for dinner, because breakfast is for breakfast. Another friend called me a few days ago and during our conversation she asked what I was fixing for dinner. “We’re having breakfast for dinner,” I said. She told me her kids loved that for dinner when they were growing up.
