  • Scouts to collect items for food pantry

    Feeding an average of 120 people each month has taken a toll on the Community Food Pantry housed at St. John’s Catholic Church. 

    “We’ve had to take cash donations and buy food to have enough for area families,  so Scouting for Food could not have come at a better time,” Ruth H. Baxter, treasurer for the food pantry said.  “We are out of everything that fills a basic food basket – from spaghetti sauce to macaroni and cheese.”

  • Give kale a try in this scrumptious, crunchy salad

    Something is happening to me since colder weather has set in and I think I have it figured out. 

    I must have lived in an earlier time when we had to prepare our bodies for cold weather because we didn’t have the luxury of furnaces that heat the whole house.

    In other words, we would eat more during the winter months because our bodies needed more fat to keep us warm.  I am sure you understand. It’s like when animals get a heavier coat of fur to protect them from the hardships of winter.

  • Kids helping kids in ‘Operation Shoebox’

    The First Baptist Church of Carrollton is participating this year in “Operation Christmas Child Shoebox,” a program sponsored by an international Christian relief organization.

    Then, they fill a shoebox with age-appropriate toys and other items – small toys, stuffed animals, jump ropes, balls, T-shirts, coloring books and crayons – even soap, toothbrushes and toothpaste.
