Today's Features

  • For all intents and purposes, I am not  a breakfast eater in the true sense of the word. I don’t eat eggs, gravy or grits and those are pretty much the foundation for breakfast–especially in the South.
    I do, however, like to eat sometime before noon and of course, my preferences tend to run on the sweet side of things. A doughnut, a Pop Tart or a bagel with strawberry cream cheese all fit the bill nicely to go with my three cups of morning coffee.

  • My Grandma Nora made the best biscuits I’ve ever tasted.
    They were light, flaky and had a unique extra something that made them stand apart from other biscuits.
    My mother made a good biscuit too–hers were of the cat head variety: big, golden brown and crusty on top and bottom and tender and fluffy on the inside.
    It’s no wonder that I spent the next four decades trying to emulate the Queens of Biscuit–and each time, coming up sadly short.

  • James W. “Jake” Cason and Marion L. Geiger Cason were married at Anthony Baptist Church in Anthony July 14, 1962.  The Rev. H.W. Markham performed the double-ring ceremony by candlelight.
