Travel: Mark Hale finds great fall color on TN/NC border

For accompanying photo(s), click on headline

This week I made another trip to South Carolina. Due to the rock slide closing I-40 near the Tennessee/North Carolina state line, I was forced to go around via I-26 out of Kingsport, TN. I rarely use this road because there are quicker routes, however it was a nice change to go through these mountains especially during the Fall peak.

I took a few pictures with my trusty cell phone, in the area near the TN/NC state line on I 26. The sun was peeping through the clouds lighting the mountain tops like a huge spotlight. Absolutley stunning!!!! I thought maybe you would like to post these on CM.

Remembering Kathy Grant: An exceptional woman

Kathy Jean Gaskins Grant, 55


Kathy Grant was an exceptional woman. She had conquered so many obstacles in her life. She was a true hero to her family and her close friends. She was always there to lend a caring hand to hold you with, a strong shoulder when you needed to lean on it, and an ear just to listen when you needed to be heard. My heart goes out to her very special family and her very special closest friends. as she will be truly missed.

A Kindred Spirit: Why the chiropracter is my best friend

Click on headline for full story plus photo

By Teresa Bell Kindred
Around my house it's not the cereal that goes snap, crackle, pop: it's me. Mainly it's my neck and shoulders that give me problems. I was fifty years old before I visited a chiropractor. I'm not sure why I waited so long, but now that I've been to one (a very good one) I don't intend to stop.

Dr. Kelly Scatena is my chiropracter. She looks like she's not old enough to be out of high school, doesn't she? I promise she is. She has certificates on her wall to prove she went to college and Chiropractic school (I checked).

Carol Perkins: The Fortune Teller

The author still remembers that Halloween while a student at Eastern Kentucky University, Richmond, KY, when a Berea friend took her to her first, and last, visit to a palm reader
The next earlier Carol Perkins story:

By Carol Perkins
On this Halloween night, darkness consumed the back regions of Berea, as my college friends (Eastern Kentucky University) and I snaked our way down a dirt road to the house of the local fortune teller. The only person who knew this so-called legendary figure was the driver, who lived in Berea herself.

"Everybody goes to her," she assured us as we neared the city limits.My experience with the dark world was limited to a Ouija board, asking the mysterious trivet when I was going to get married or who my future husband was going to be. I knew, but I wanted to see if "it" knew.<
