Little Old Lady & Ichabod Crane

Posted on June 18, 2018 7:07 pm by Barbara Ardis

It started out like a normal Tuesday. Except most days in my life are anything but “normal.” I bought my car at a dealership in another town and return every 6,000 miles for a routine checkup. They change the oil and filter and check tire depth and all fluids. At my last visit they told me my right hand windshield washer was broken but they would have to order the parts. I said I would return. After about 2,000 miles I found time to return to the dealership only to be told that they had the nozzle I needed but… Read the rest

Posted on June 18, 2018 11:11 am by Laura Stone

Fisheagle Wildlife Tours has been operating out of Santee State Park for 23 years. However, there’s a new owner in town.

They offer tours on Wednesdays and Fridays through Sundays, leaving at 1 p.m. However, Simons didn’t feel this was a full use of the two boats the company owns.

Moments in time

Posted on June 16, 2018 8:08 am by Cindy Risher

In a recent daily devotional I read these words penned by Bill Crowder… “Though we measure time with clocks and calendars, we remember times because of events. In the moments of life that trigger our deepest emotions, we can experience joy, loss, blessing, pain, success, failure.” Wow … that got me thinking about those defining moments in my life that have shaped my life perspective.
