  • This summer may be very hot, but it can be worse…

    In this month of July we have been through a very hot summer here in Carrollton. And almost everywhere in the United States, the weather stations have advised us to be careful when we go outside, to have water handy and to have functioning air conditioning units in our cars to be prepared for the hotter days.

    This reminds me that as Christians we have to be like the weather stations, informing and warning the people that if their ways of living do not change and they keep doing whatever they want they are heading to a very hot place, “Hell.”

  • City makes progress with tobacco-free ordinance; county needs to act too

    Our community has seen some progressive moves this summer that are long-overdue that can and will benefit our health.

    First, Welch’s Riverside Restaurant decided to make the majority of its facility smoke-free. Owner Junior Welch set aside an area for smokers, but his decision has cleared the air in most of the restaurant that used to have a heavy smell of cigarette smoke.

  • Salad, crock pot meal won’t heat up the kitchen

    Since it is so hot outside, the only thing to do is try to keep it cool inside. Whether you have air conditioning or not, it can get very hot in the house when cooking. I have a few ideas of some very easy and cool meals to prepare for your family, simple, but cool meals in more ways than one.

    My husband and I love tuna fish, so I frequently make tuna fish salads for lunch or supper. Not the typical sandwich, but an all out cool summer salad. I give you:
