    I can honestly say it was the best gefilte fish I ever ate, mainly because I’d never eaten any before.

    “Gefilte” sounds tastier than “ground up raw fish mixed with eggs, onions and matzoh meal then stuffed into the skin of a de-boned fish and poached.”

    I ate it as part of a Passover Seder as a guest of Congregation Beth Sholom Jewish Synagogue in Beverly Hills, Fla.

  • Concert set at Sand Spring Baptist

    Concert in Frankfort

    The Kingsmen and Shireys are scheduled to perform in concert Thursday, April 9 at Capital City Christian Church, 15 Locust Lane, Frankfort.

    One of my favorite jokes goes like this:

    A woman whose husband just left her for another woman walks the beach and finds a bottle in the sand. After pulling out the cork, a genie appears and grants her three wishes, with one stipulation: Whatever she wishes for her husband receives double.

  • From staff reports

    The March meeting of the Pierian Woman’s Club included a salad buffet shared with Beta Sigma Phi.

    McKenna Lewis, Distinguished Young Woman of Anderson County, provided musical entertainment.

    The business meeting followed, during which the devotional was presented by Rose Cunningham in memory of her late sister, Pearl Allen.

    Members discussed increasing this year’s scholarship awards by adding two $1,000 scholarships.

  • From staff reports
