Vincenzo and Joyce Ann Verderajme of Greenwood will celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary.
One of the first meals I ever ate in my husband’s home was lovingly prepared by his precious Mama. I was invited to attend church with his family and then stay for lunch. We had delicious roast, rice and gravy that was to die for. Also black-eyed peas, strawberry congealed salad and her home…
When we travel to the city of Jackson, I always pause when we leave the Lexington Square and pass a church on the outskirts of the town. I thoroughly enjoy reading the church’s marquee messages for the week. I don’t know who is responsible, but they never disappoint.

Do you struggle with worrying? Have you ever called yourself (or been called) a worry wart? Have you ever wondered how some people can live so seemingly carefree while you are almost always thinking and analyzing every possible thing that could happen?
Charlene “Tut” Elliott and Charles F. “Chuck” Elliott, both of Carrollton, announce the upcoming marriage of their daughter, Amber Blair Elliott, to Colby Wade Mitchell.
I often wonder about those folks who toil in their gardens alone with just their plants and thoughts. Such non-joiners, scattered worldwide, just a few in every community, love gardening more than they do hobnobbing with other people.
If May’s already on the way, it must be time again for the Delta’s favorite food and music festival, Que on the Yazoo, set to fire up on Friday and Saturday, May 3 and 4, along the banks, you guessed it, of the mighty Yazoo River in downtown Greenwood.
Spring makes me want to get in the kitchen and cook. There are so many websites that I love to visit and get ideas for dishes to prepare. Today I have three recipes that I have added to my recipe box as what we like to call “keepers.”
Easter Sunday lunch is one of the first spring meals that we prepare. Gone are the heavy meals, soups and chowders. We think about salad and vegetable dishes that are a lighter fare.

I recently had the opportunity to hear Mr. Nathan Dunaway speak to our elementary school students. The Dunaway family of Madison lost its 13-year-old grandson, Jack, a little over two years ago. The message was about kindness and being nice to people.
Glad I didn’t plant my tomatoes last week. That not-so-surprisingly late spate of “blackberry winter” happens nearly every year. Which brings me to a pet peeve.
When I look around the museum today, I am completely amazed at all the changes that have taken place since the beginning of the year.
Teenagers are likely to experience stress when they perceive a situation as painful, dangerous or difficult. An inability to cope with the stresses they face may lead to anxiety, depression, aggression, physical illness and poor coping skills, such as alcohol or drug abuse.
An older man in my church came up to me several years ago and asked me how things were going in my counseling practice. After I had given him the standard “Things are going well” response, he jokingly asked me if I had figured out how to change anyone yet. He then told me, “Mischa, no one ch…
Spring is just around the corner, and I can’t wait for that fresh spring and summer produce to hit the stores and farmers markets. Strawberries are the first fruit to ripen each spring. I love to see those beautiful baskets of luscious red strawberries. I can never resist.
Landscape gardening sometimes involves hard decisions where no solution seems just right. But “between a rock and a hard place” dissonance can be resolved by going in an entirely different direction.
Just before spring break, I judged a beauty pageant, and they had a basket of goodies for each judge. One of the things in the basket was a local cookbook. I received several food magazines the next day. I was ready for the beginning of our break.
You use the pantry every day, but it is easy to overlook when you are cleaning. It may seem like a daunting task but it really doesn’t take long. When you get the pantry clean, be sure to re-stock with some healthy staples.
I have often written of my love for my pets. My husband, Steve, falls into the same category. About 10 years ago, he rescued a tiny black puppy and took her to our farm. We referred to her as Lucy, the farm dog. She loved to run and play in the woods. Every afternoon, Steve would ride out an…

Benton Academy recently hosted the State AA Basketball Tournament. I was responsible for the food in our hospitality room for all school coaches, administration and officials. It was quite an undertaking, but I enjoyed every minute of it.
