October is the month set aside to celebrate success and progress in the battle against breast cancer.

There is nothing more devastating than to go to the doctor and to be told that you have cancer. The second worst thing is to tell your family that you have this killer disease.

Letter to the Editor: Thanks from the Miracle League

Dear Editor: The Miracle League of Newton County had a great Opening Weekend at Colonel Cob's Corn Maze and Pumpkin Patch, Sept. 17-18. Special, special thanks to Tommy and Emy Mitcham (along with their entire family) for graciously opening up their Corn Maze to benefit The Miracle League.

The pride of the patch

Beautiful orange pumpkins are a staple of fall decorating around Covington. It's a tradition for families to pick out an ideal pumpkin to place by a hay bale and a basket of mums in the yard or to carve into a jack-o'-lantern. This fall, Covington residents will have over 1,800 of them to choose from just off the Square, as Covington First United Methodist Church presents its fourth annual Great Pumpkin Patch.

There has been one little hiccup, however. The delivery, originally expected to arrive on Saturday, has been delayed. It is unclear at this time when ...

A surprise write-in

It was an easy four-hour drive to Charleston last weekend. Bob was off to Darlington, S.C., to drive a friend's race car, so I headed out for a visit with my friend Nathalie Dupree and her husband Jack Bass, the South Carolina historian and author. Supper was ready when I walked in the door, a plate full of vegetables and salads, one of mixed rice, lady peas, grilled peaches and light vinaigrette. Her new thing was okra sliced lengthwise and roasted quickly with olive oil and salt. "They're like potato chips," she said, and they were.

Alcovy Trestle Bridge: A violent history leaves bridge haunted

It's been said that extreme violence leaves its mark on a place, and that those whose life ends in violence still wander the place they died. And legend has it, the Alcovy Trestle Bridge area is one of these places. According to some, it's the site of more than one ghost.

In the 1940s, the Alcovy Trestle Bridge is rumored to be the site of several hangings carried out by vigilantes who would bring young black men from Newton and surrounding counties to the trestle, walk them down the long tracks, then hang them from the portion of ...
