Home Cooking: Cooking for others satisfies Goff
At a very young age, Oxford native Margaret Goff was introduced to the kitchen while helping her grandmother cook jelly. That was when she was around the age of 4.
But by age 9, Goff was doing way more than canning jelly.
“My first experience in the kitchen where I cooked something was when I was 9,” Goff recalled as she put the finishing touches on a pot of soup boiling on her stovetop. “I made pork chops, lima beans, potato salad and cornbread. My Mama Annie – my maternal grandmother – was with me in the kitchen. She showed me what to do and let me do it on my own. As far as cooking in general, I was cooking meals for my family when I was 10.”
Board considers contract, coordinator, other concerns
The Tunica County Board of Supervisor’s agenda on Nov. 5 included a gamut of topics ranging from employment issues to appropriations. The Board recessed until Nov. 15 after two hours of discussion.
After receiving department head reports from Arena Director Steve Sosebee and county engineer Daniel Murphy, the board had appointments with Aurelia Jones-Taylor of Aaron E. Henry Community Health Services Center, Inc.
Taylor proposed a contract with Tunica County to provide inmate care and follow up appointments and estimated a cost of $40,000 to $50,000. Supervisors will amend their proposed local and private legislation with the state to change the amount to Aaron Henry from $25,000 to $75,000.
