Cooking class held at Marshall CountyExtension Service to celebrate Dairy Month
By JANET JOLLEY, County Extension Director
A dairy cooking class was held at the Marshall County Extension office on Thursday, June 15, to celebrate Dairy Month, which is held in June of each year.
The 13 children had a wonderful morning learning some basic cooking skills and making several recipes.
Three Mississippi Homemaker Volunteers assisted in the cooking class. Participants enjoyed making pizza dip, pizza squares, smoothies, and New Year&rsquos Eve Cheeseball with &ldquoice cream in a bag&rdquo as the grand finale.
The children not only learned about cooking with dairy products but also learned the importance of consuming three cups of milk a day or the equivalent to ensure that they had strong bones.
The children who participated were Grace Dunlap, Robin Bryant, Meredith Collins, Remy Collins, Thomas Passons, Trenton Robinson, Ashley Doole, Alina Doole, Steven Elgin, Allyson Smith, Allyiah Smith, Alec Smith, and Chris Davis. MHV members assisting were Daisy Walton, Wilmer Jones and Deloris Plaxico.
Also, assisting County Extension Director Janet Jolley and 4-H Agent Lemon Phelps was 4-H member Devin Doole.

The Internet is our future -- whether we like it or not (by Walter Webb)
We attended the Mississippi Press Convention last week on the Gulf Coast. It is quite evident that “gaming” is revitalizing the Coast, which had seemingly never recovered from the devastation of Hurricane Camille almost 27 years ago. One session of the Convention was about the Internet and the future of newspapers. A web-staff person from the Charlotte Observer made a presentation about the future of newspapers on the Internet and “history’s ten most intriguing statements about technology. No. 7: Computers in the future may weigh no more than 1.5 tons. No. 3: There is no reason anyone would want a computer in their home. No. 2: 640K ought to be enough for anyone! (Bill Gates). No. 1: Internet publishing is of no interest to newspapers

Frances Carpenter won $1000 Tuesday in the nationwide Coca-Cola giveaway. Coke manager Harold Carden presented Mrs. Carpenter “a fistful of money” for her winning cap. Mrs. Carpenter and Shirley Smith were taking a break at the Wurlizter plant. Mrs. Smith was drinking another drink and asked Mrs. Carpenter for her bottle cap to remove the cap lining on her bottle to see if she’d won anything. She didn’t, but when Mrs. Carpenter opened hers, the $1000 popped up. Mr. Carden said the odds on winning a $1000 prize is one in 175,000.
Other local winners include Catherine Booth of the University of Mississippi, Liberty Plaza, Oxford, $100; Linda Boyd, Holly Springs, Liberty Gro., $100; and Robert L. Bynum, Potts Camp, Piggly Wiggly, $100.
