It is regrettable to announce that Jubilee Hall, previously featured in the “Back in Time” column in Mandarin NewsLine in July 2018, has met her match as the teeth of an excavator masticated the century-old structure last month.

Charles Frederick Winton employed renowned Mandarin builder William Monson to erect the home for him and his family. The home featured a decorative two-tiered veranda, giving rise to its quick popularity as a prominent meeting place for many Mandarin folk and their families. Over the years, Jubilee Hall saw many hardships and growth alike, as the little village of Mandarin continued on into the 20th Century.

Chicken is a versatile food that can be prepared and cooked in various ways and is capable of being combined with a host of tasty ingredients. In fact, cooking and serving chicken with certain foods can pack a flavorful punch, turning an otherwise bland chicken breast into a dish families won’t soon forget. Such is the case with “Roasted Red Pepper, Sun-Dried Tomato and Feta Topped Chicken” from Laurie McNamara’s “Simply Scratch: 120 Whole Homemade Recipes Made Easy” (Avery).

Hendersonville, NC, may be overshadowed by its neighbor Asheville, but when it comes to apples, the smaller mountain city shines. Hendersonville ranks as the seventh largest producer of apples in America. Since I adore apples, I accepted an invitation to participate in an agritourism tour.
