Rose Clark will be celebrating her 100th birthday on Feb. 19, 2011. She is one of 11 children born to the late Oscar and Julia Arnold on a small farm in Macon County. She married Wiley Clark in 1929 and was blessed with three sons, Kenneth, Doyle and Gary.

Rose remembers her first year of marriage well. She and Wiley lived in a lumber camp in Nantahala, where he cut acid wood and she cooked for the lumberjacks. After moving back to Franklin, Wiley worked in construction most of his life, and Rose took care of their children and kept their home and garden in shape.


At the upcoming Feb. 22 Ladies Night Out program, the topic will be Dental Health.

According to the Centers for Disease Control, Americans make about 500 million visits to dentists each year. In 2009, an estimated $102 billion was spent on dental services in the United States. Oral health is often taken for granted but it affects people of all ages. Good oral health helps us to speak, smile, smell, taste, chew, swallow and use facial expressions. Poor oral health leads to problems for millions of Americans each year.

On Jan. 23, 53 Christians from Western North Carolina traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual March for Life. The March for Life is the largest protest in our nation’s capital each year. It is held on or near Jan. 22, to coincide with the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Roe v. Wade to peacefully seek to petition Congress for redress.

Marchers join with hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers each year from many religions, ethnicities and ages as they walk from the National Mall down Constitution Avenue to the steps of the Supreme Court.
