In The Star

June 10, 1938, in The Star: “Food stories” are typically printed on Fridays because that’s the day grocery stores run their advertisements, and that’s because it’s a traditional market day for the typical housewife. In one such article, about easy ways to prepare Sunday meals, we’re told, “Kitchen slavery on Sunday is out of date. Huge meals that keep the women of the house in the hot kitchen all morning while the men idle about don’t make much sense in the American picture of equality.” The main midday dish, a 3-in-1 combination of lamb chops, potatoes and green peas, “takes only one hour to cook and greatly reduces Sunday drudgery without reducing the good eating men expect on Sunday.” Rounding out this meal are clear fresh vegetable soup served with hot toast, hot biscuits, tart jelly, watercress and orange salad, old-fashioned strawberry shortcake, light whipped cream, coffee and milk.

June 10, 1988, in The Star: The use of a private investigator to collect rent last night seemed to intensify the concerns of Terrace Homes Apartments tenants that the absent owner is apathetic to their plight. The situation heightened to the point where one resident claimed Horace Simpson, hired by James M. Dubay to collect rent, told her he was carrying a gun. Simpson denied having said he was armed, but a security detail from Anniston Army Depot (where the apartments are located) searched him and the complex office just the same. The apartments’ condition has deteriorated in recent years, explaining the residents’ exasperation with whoever is in charge.
