  • Growing up, Stuart Graham attended Van Wyck Presbyterian Church with his family.  
    Just two doors down from there stood a bright yellow home known throughout the tight knit community as the old Hyatt house.  
    At the time, Graham never realized the keys to the 1898 Victorian-style home at 5154 Old Hickory Road would one day be in his pocket.
    Graham had always admired the house and was excited to learn in 2003 it was to be sold at an auction.

  • Opinions and advice on how to achieve good health or overcome health problems are a “dime-a-dozen” nearly everywhere.
    But it means a lot more to hear a personal story from someone you know, who’s succeeded in achieving better health.
    It’s even better if their program is simple, easy to understand and affordable.

  • Erwin Elementary School special needs teacher LeAnne White found a surprise in her classroom Monday. 

    It was a photo of one of her students, 8-year-old Morgan Knight, taken near an “In honor of” sign with White’s name on it at the first annual Chalk Walk on May 14, along with an event T-shirt.

    “I cried,” White said. “It was very sweet for her to do that.”

    The Chalk Walk is a 3.1 mile fun run to honor teachers and raise money for the Buford High School Future Educators Association (FEA).

  • While vacationing in Maryland, I got one of those phone calls nobody likes.

    It seems that a hailstorm damaged the roof of our “Charlotte Road” home. 

    Somebody (not me) decided that I should make the trip back south by myself to check everything out and call the insurance company, if necessary.

    So much for my spring getaway. Sometimes this retirement gig ain’t all it’s cracked up to be.

  • FORT LAWN – In 1996, third-generation farmers David and Jimmy Jordan were looking for a crop that could be watered and didn’t require very much rain.
    Their options were limited, given their location just north of Fort Lawn on S.C. 21. That was something the Jordan boys learned young, while watching their grandfather try to scratch out a cotton crop on the same ground.
    “We’d sit on the porch and watch thunderstorms come through and go around this place every single time, making our granddaddy so mad he could spit,” David Jordan said.
