Seizing the moment, I explained how traveling evangelists would appear on the outskirts of small towns back in the 1950's and 1960's and set up what appeared to be a circus big top - in actuality a surplus Army tent. For a week or so the evangelists would hold nightly services. The sermon was always a fire-and-brimstone call for sinners to repent, eschew worldly ways, accept salvation in Jesus Christ and to give a few ...

Berry pickin’ time

The local community knows exactly where to go each berry season for their supply of delicious fresh-picked blueberries, blackberries and raspberries. The Alcovy Berry Farm, located off Lackey Road, offers opportunities for customers to peruse through the farm to pick their own berries at prices much lower to those offered at regular supermarkets.

The idea is to measure student achievement annually by looking at their scores on the Criterion Referenced Competency Tests (CRCT) and for ...
