    KERSHAW – Before Tuesday’s volleyball game between Andrew Jackson High School and Central of Pageland is over, there is a chance that the Lady Vols’ Tori Roberts may be called on to serve. 

    It may be her 17th birthday, but she won’t let that cause a distraction. 

    Tori has the determination to succeed at everything she does. Just ask Pastor Pablo Tayupanda and his wife, Marcella.

    Age: 40

    Address: Potter Road

    Family: Wife, Michelle (give her age – are you kidding?); three sons, Nathan, 13, Andrew, 8, and Caleb, 3

    Job: Minister of Camp Creek Baptist and Haven Creek Baptist churches

    Hobbies: Golf, family and church

  • The element of surprise was not a factor when Buford Middle School opened football practice in August for the 2011 season. Not for BMS veteran football coach Greg Caskey, who among his new players was Tory Knight, 12.

    Knight, a Buford Middle seventh-grader, is a girl.

    Still for Caskey, it wasn’t stunning to see Knight out for the team.

    “I wasn’t surprised in the least bit,” Caskey said. “She had told me as a sixth-grader in my physical education class she was coming out for the team.

  • One of the best way to showcase the delicious flavors of early fall is with a homemade apple pie.

    What makes apples and apple pie so all-American?

    “It brings people together,” said Ken Haedrich, author of “Apple Pie: 100 Delicious and Decidedly Different Recipes for America’s Favorite Pie.” 

    “It’s the closest thing we have, food-wise, to a universal symbol of goodness and contentment.”

  • My idea of shopping usually involves a mall bench. 

    Recently, while sitting on one, itching for the stores to cut out the lights, I spied an electronics store right across from my perch. I couldn’t help but notice young people going in and out of it. 

    You know, sometimes an old man’s curious nature gets the best of me. 

    In my case, that nosiness – uh, curiosity – dates back to summer evenings in 1942.

  • The jet-setting lifestyle came easy for J.T. Franklin. It’s no wonder he was smiling.

    His grin came from helping estimate, design and oversee the electrical components of facilities like the $143 million Mecklenburg County Courthouse with its 39 courtrooms, the $27 million Billy Graham Library and 44 hospitals from coast to coast.
