In a previous column I mentioned that our organization's insurance will not allow us to accept what are known as "bully" dog breeds including Pit Bulls, Chows, Rottweiler’s, etc.  On that list as well is the German Shepherd, which is one my all-time favorites.

East Center Community

by Ruth Abbott
 
The East Center Community is located east of Canton and west of Grand Saline, and was settled in the late 1870’s. Time has obscured how it came to be called Center. However, the first available records I found list it as Center and was called this until the late 1800’s, when it was changed to East Center. Likely the reason being, there was also a community named Center in the western part of the country.
