Johnston laid foundation for Old Carolina Brick
It has been mistakenly reported that my husband, Dudley Frame Jr., founded Old Carolina Brick Co. It was Ladd Johnston, our dear friend, who had the dream of making handmade brick and built the plant.
At that time, we had Frame Brick Co. in Alabama, and we ordered the first carload of brick from Old Carolina Brick. When he (Johnston) decided to sell, Dudley put in a bid and got the facility. It has been very successful and at the present, we are selling not only to customers in the United States but also to foreign countries.
Thank you for the excellent coverage of our company.

Schools aren’t babysitters
In response to Alisha Byrd’s Feb. 18 letter (“Students shouldn’t be left out in the cold”):
Teachers and assistants are not glorified babysitters. You don’t love your child more than any other mother. Oh, and if she did catch the flu, it’s a mother’s or father’s duty to take off and pay her medical bills. She can catch the flu sitting in church! School staff is underpaid and overworked. You stated, “it is imperative to let the parents in the school know how our children are being treated.
You need to quit worrying about your child catching the flu and volunteer your service to babysit before school starts.
