  • The animal actor that has graced the big screen, television movies, talk shows and magazine covers, is coming here.

    Jeff Watson and Brody the bear will stop by Nutramax Laboratories in Lancaster Business Park on Monday for a short visit.

    Don’t be fooled by the 1,300-pound Kodiak grizzly’s soft, brown cuddly fur, amber eyes, turned up nose and sweet face. 

    Raised by Watson since he was 8 weeks old, Brody is a trained actor in every sense.

  • Sometimes, you don’t know until you try.                                          

    If you happened to be on Main Street last Thursday afternoon, you would have seen me and photographer Aaron Morrison try a stunt that the late Pierce Horton Sr. of the Corner Drug Store did more than 60 years ago.

    We were trying to see if it was hot enough to fry an egg on the sidewalk.

  • Homer and Brenda Harmon of Great Falls were in Rock Hill when they decided to eat at Kentucky Fried Chicken.

    “We went in to eat, but we didn’t get to,” Homer said.

    That’s because Homer was outfitted in white pants, a white jacket with a black handkerchief tucked inside and a white shirt with his colonel’s “signature” string tie. He wore framed glasses and carried a walking cane.

  • I walked by the county jail and library on my way to Lancaster High School just about every day.

    I was always fascinated when I stopped by the old library at the corner of Gay and French Streets.

    To me, it was amazing to watch librarian Miss Robbie Horton work. 

    While I struggled to find stuff using the formula Melvil Dewey devised, she never did. 

    Shucks, Miss Robbie made it look easy; she knew where every book and volume was. She was the best book finder and put ’er backer I ever saw.

  •     The teacher who had a special love for reading now has a special place in her honor at the school she loved.

    In May, members of the late Kathy Emory’s family, colleagues and friends dedicated the Miss Kathy Emory Outdoor Reading Classroom at McDonald Green Elementary School.

    Emory died Dec. 24, 2010, after battling colon cancer for more than two years. She was 52. 

    Emory served on the McDonald Green staff for more than 30 years as a fourth grade teacher and media specialist.
