  • French onion can be a satisfying soup to make

    Ome of the first soups that I ever learned how to make was French onion.

    Although it contains few ingredients, French onion is one of the most complex and satisfying soups out there. 

    The combination of a rich onion soup paired with crunchy bread and melted, gooey cheese creates a dish that is better than the sum of its parts. 

    The ratio of soup to cheese to bread is a very important concept in a good French onion. 

    The earthenware crocks that French onion soup is commonly served in helps keep this ratio in check.

  • Plaque presented to CCMH honors Marlette’s contributions

    The family of a former chief X-ray technologist donated a plaque in his honor to Carroll County Memorial Hospital.

    Melissa (Marlette) Hazelwood presented the plaque to the hospital’s chief executive officer, Kanute Rarey, in honor of her father, Joe Marlette. 

    Marlette retired from the hospital in 1999 after a 36-year career. He started out as an orderly and a lab technician, eventually, rising to chief X-ray technologist in the radiology department.
