  • On July 5, the Carrollton Woman’s Club began its 97th year. Members met at 7 p.m. at Pat Perkins’ place on Seminary St. Hostess for the evening was Mary Ann Carrico-Mitchell who presided. Karen Claiborne, Vice-Governor for the Fifth District had a program comparing Carrollton Women’s Club in the beginning in 1914, to today in 2011. The role of women in the community was very different from today as more women stayed at home, and there were as many as 65 members in the club back then.

  • Since it is hot outside, I decided the other day to make some French bread to serve with my spaghetti and meatballs.

    I started making the bread about 10 a.m. and by 12:15 p.m., it was done. The reason I am telling you this is to give you an idea of how simple it is to make. Most of the time the bread is rising, and you can go off and do other things. I usually set my timer for rising, however I will check the bread just to make sure it is doing okay.
