Pelzer, Pelzer, Pelzer....

Small town with character is growing! I've been living in Columbia, SC for the past seven years, and am back in my hometown where I grew up. It's nice to see the town is growing...finally, however, it is sad to see the Pelzer mill gone.

When I worked with ETV in Columbia we did a doc about the closings of textile mills and the mill villages in SC...Pelzer was one of the towns on the list. I understand there is talk about building a park where the mill used to be??

Columbia is a nice little town to raise a family. The only problems I have come across are the construction routes and the drugs. It seems Meth has taken over some of the town. But it has beautiful old homes and a nice downtown area.

I would love to correspond with anyone who remembers the following families of EP: Ashbridge, Chaplow, Lane, Leake, Linzey, and Heads.

My Ggrandparents, Richard Leake and Eliza Jane Smith came to East Palestine in 1869 and built the house located at 185 South Market Street. They raised their 10 children in that home. We had many family reunions there.

My Ggrandmother, Elizabeth Ashbridge Heads, came from England to EP in 1891 with her two of her three sons: Robert Ashbridge Heads (my grandfather), and Isaac Heads. Her middle child, John Joseph Heads, remained in England with their father, Isaac, Sr., until 1905 when he also came to the USA. They resided on Leake Street until the time of their death. I would love to speak with anyone who remembers these remarkable people.

I'm writing about a business by the name of ALL BUDGETS MEDICAL in Wappinger Falls NY. They operate an on-line business purveying medical equipment.

This company cannot be trusted. In brief, I asked about their return policy before ordering an item and was told they would accept it (less shipping charges) but had to obtain an RMA number from them first. After receiving the item, I found that it was the wrong size for my needs (it wouldn't adjust sufficiently). So I repackaged it, unused, and asked for an RMA number. They gave me no response for 5 days so I telephoned them.

At this point they told me they would not supply an RMA number and would not accept this item in return.

DO NOT TRUST THIS COMPANY. DO NOT BUY THEIR PRODUCTS.

Hello Nebraskans!
I'm currently writing about a fictional young woman who grew up in De Witt and would have attended Concordia in Seward during the mid 1990's. I'd really love to correspond with anyone who lived in Seward, De Witt, or anywhere in southeastern Nebraska around that time. I'm particularly curious to know what students there did/do for entertainment. Any insight would be very greatly appreciated!!
Thanks!

Question for Plains residents: Does anyone know when Sacred Heart RC Church was founded? I'm not living in the area anymore, but am hoping someone can provide me with at least an approximate date. Someone told me the church already celebrated their Centennial...does anyone remember what year that took place?

This is a friendly small town that loves its football and basketball teams. We are located 35 miles from Oklahoma City. We have the only honey factory and have several dairy farms surrounding the town. Thence, the motto "Minco, the Land of Milk and Honey. The oldest business in town is Woodworth Hardware. When you step into the building its like steping back in time. Hardware is an understatement as the business has everything from baby clothes to furniture Everything you need for your house they have it. Its a fun experience going there. You all come see us anytime!!!!!

Just wanted to say hello from Dallas. My family has land in Martha and my great grandfather, Curtis Hawkins, helped start the First State Bank of Altus. Both great grandparents are buried in Altus and I try to come as often as possible to visit their graves. My grandmother was Patsy Turner, Curtis Hawkin's daughter.... she passed away on October 9th.... Herald and James lease our land in Martha and are some of the best people my family knows....

Lone Oak Texas is located on the eastern shores of Lake Tawakoni. It is a quiet ranching community that has a wonderful little secret. It is called The Villages at Lone Oak. Millions of Dollars have been spent on the infrastructure for over 1100 upscale homes in a community which will feature a vast array of amenities.

Begin with an exclusive Jeffrey Brauer Golf Course and what will be a $3 million dollar Clubhouse with a golf pro shop, exercise facilities, Lakeside ammenities, various pools, and tennis, just for starters. Adjacent to the property is 1400 acres of Texas wildlife lands that can be used for hiking, biking, and horseback riding. Like any well constructed community though, it takes time to develop. I for one am enjoying watching this little gem take shape.

You owe it to yourself to see The Villages at Lone Oak, to see what is shaping up to be a transformation for the Lake Tawakoni area.

Have you been out to the Villages? what do you think?

I am a resident of Ducktown Tn. the neighboring town of Copperhill. Copperhill is well known in this area for being a speed trap with a very corrupt city government not to mention police department. I would advise any traveler to skip Copperhill and come over to Ducktown. Copperhill wants you to believe that they are the home of the Ocoee River but if you want to go rafting you have to come to Ducktown. Ducktown is where the rafting companies are and that is where you have to go to access the Ocoee River. Ducktown is also home to two motels where as Copperhill has none. The only thing you will get in Copperhill is a traffic ticket for any rediculous or petty reason. Travelers beware of Copperhill, but don't forget to check out Ducktown.

My wife and I moved here from Oregon and we love it. Fortunately, Osage County won't show up in any of the polls as 'retirement' or "move to" destinations. I guess that may be because there is only one Starbucks in this county--even though it is geographically the largest in Oklahoma. I say fortunately because I would hate to see the breakneck growth of strip malls and shopping centers needed to qualify for these "accolades". Proximity to Starbucks pales in comparison to home and land prices 1/3 the cost in Oregon, cleaner air, sunnier winters, and beautiful hardwood forests with rivers, creeks, and ponds stocked with fish. People here have a simpler appreciation for time and family. An average Osage county family can own a 3 bedroom, 2 bath, 2 car garage home on 40 acres. Large tracts of land--160 acres + --can still be found for about $1,000 per acre. Because Osage county did not experience the boom in real estate prices we are not experiencing the bust. Land or coffee???

On February 6 at 7 pm, celeb attorney and author John Mayoue will be speaking and conducting a book signing at the Barnes & Noble at 5555 Whittlesey Rd. He will discuss how to emerge from a divorce financially and emotionally intact, among other topics. It should be interesting as his former and current client roster includes: Chris Rock, Marianne Gingrich, P. Diddy, Jane Fonda, and others. Plus all proceeds of his book go to Camp Sunshine, a facility for children with cancer.

For many years I have been searching for information regarding a certain area of Riderwood and have been unsuccessful. When I was 8 years old ( 1959 ) I used to play in a field near the Crum's house. While playing there I found a railroad spike on a ridge that extended from the Crum's toward Judge Sobiloff 's house. I have always wandered where these railroad tracks went . Were they part of the Lutherville Toonerville Trolley or were they part of the Susquenna railroad . The area was very mysteri.ous back then. There was an old well, an old one room schoolhouse and a few springs . The judge had a summer home there perhaps built in the 1920s. I lived on Robinhood Court back the and still think back to those days . Please contact me if you have any information.

I have visited Knott County a few times. I am from Chicago and my Husband is from Knott County. I was freaked out the first time I went there. The water the septic, the living conditions. My infant son got quite ill his first visit there. We take precautions now when we go and this last summer we had a great time. YOu cant beat the scenery and the most of the people we know are so nice. But I did notice the county is stricken with drug abuse and polverty! I don't like going to visit and having to worry that my stuff is going to be stolen and I am from a BIG CITY I don't worry about that at home. Infact my husband and I leave our doors to the house unlocked we live in a community we there is a low crime rate thank god! There are no jobs there either well not enough and if there where there would not be enough sober people to fill them! BUTS ITS VERY PRETTY TO VISIT!

"On the Bigfoot Scenic Byway between Hoopa and Orleans in the canyon country of Humboldt County?s California Coastal Range precisely at the confluence of the Klamath River and Trinity River lies the small community of Weitchpec.

Weitchpec is an anglicize word for the spring called Weitspus in the Yurok language. Weitspus seeps out of the side of the mountain bringing cool fresh water. The Yurok built one of many villages at Weitspus. The village became the center of the commerce and trade for the native people who relied on the Klamath River and Trinity River for their bounty of food, their transportation and their social lives. Today, a few homes, the ceremonial dance grounds, cultural areas, and Spey-gee Point Guide Service remain at Weitspus."

This is an excerpt of a very interesting article by Billee Willson-Kidwell at http://www.klamathriveradventures.com

Check it out. It really sheds some light on the history of of the Weitchpec area and people.

My fav thing about Weitchpec is taking the tour of the Klamath River from Spey-gee Point Guide Service at Weitchpec to the mouth of the Klamath where it meets the Pacific.

The fishing is amazing! My friends Thomas and Morneen Willson own the guide service and just recently finished a cabin for lodging. By taking a guided tour of the Klamath, one can have a true wilderness experience without traveling far and spending a lot of money. Did I say the fishing was incredible? Check out the photos of the fish at http://www.KlamathRiverAdventures.com

If you are the outdoor type, I recommend a trip to Weitchpec. There is nowhere like it. Wild!

I am 34 and I am a lifelong resident of Williston. I happen to also be a mail carrier here. I know alot of people around here and that is nice. That is the great thing about a small town. You can go in to the grocery store and run in to somebody you know pretty much all of the time. I love the community and everybody is nice to you. I sing at some of the local events that we have here and have my own little fan base, which is really nice. Everybody here is like one big extended family. I wouldn't raise my family anywhere else but here, although as teenagers, my kids would like to disgree and would rather live somewhere more exciting. I remember thinking like that at their age, but I am pretty sure that when they become adults and start families of their own, they will probably come to appreciate living in a small rural town like Williston. Like "Cheer's", Williston is the place "Where everybody knows your name."

Hello My Name is Nancy Hamilton, Franklin County School Board needs to address some serious issues. I have heard I am one of many that this has happened to. I had a PROTECTION ORDER. Both of my sons files were suppose to be red flagged and a copy of protection order was put into both of their school records. Someone at the office at school slipped up really bad. They let my husband then,my abuser let my sons info go due to a request that had been sent to Ozark Schools from Clarendon,AR this happened during the summer of 2003. The local law authority was not notified and I wasn't either. The Ozark School System had no right to give this man their father any of their information at all.Someone in the office did not look or follow procedure.Because of this screw up I lost both of my sons to their father,my abuser.My oldest is now 18 but my youngest is now 10. I want my youngest son back with me and I intend on getting him back if it is the last thing that I do and with your help.

Homer is a quaint little hamlet but for some reason the family who has controled the town for years does not want growth to occur - Homer now has three (3) read this carefully THREE financial institutions but not one grocery store!!!

I forsee in the years to come, growth to follow US 441 from Banks Crossing to Baldwin. New stores, supermarkets, pharmacies and business with the town of Homer being just like it is now - a dead corpse of a municipality. - The powers that lead Homer had rather it's population spend its money out of the county rather than allow business to build in Homer itself.

I propose Banks County move its county seat to Banks Crossing. This is where growth is occuring. Oh wait, Banks can't have it's county seat in a different county can it?

Oh well, Homer a dead corpse municipality it is.

Someone send flowers.

Located on the edge of the eastern plains of New Mexico, where the Mighty Rockies meet the Great Plains, is the town of Las Vegas. No - not the big "City of Sin" with the gambling strip! Las Vegas, New Mexico is not as well known as other Wild West towns, such as Dodge City, Deadwood, or Tombstone, but Las Vegas is said to have been the worst of the biggest, baddest Old West Towns.

Doc Holliday kept his medical office in Las Vegas, New Mexico. The Rough Riders first met in the saloon of the Plaza Hotel in Las Vegas. You can get a shot of tequila in that same saloon, today.

I live in gorgeous Las Vegas, New Mexico. I want to share my beautiful tiny Las Vegas with you.

Door County is a great place, year round. In summer you have 250 miles of coastline to explore, beaches, boating, dining al fresco and lots more. In winter, you can snuggle by a fireplace, snowshoe, cross-country ski, snowmobile and even ice fish!

Lots to do and great places to stay, dine, even buy!

One of your schools has hired a janitor named Sean Hilton King. He abuses children and certainly should not be working at a school. Are they crazy? Doesn't Texas do background checks? He severely physically and mentally damaged my grandson and his brother, his own child. He uses different last names, and social security numbers that belong to the children of whomever he is involved with. He uses the name Contreras as well as King.

Ah Bolton, CT... the essence of New England charm. A quiet, safe little community nestled away, yet only 15 minutes to downtown Hartford and Glastonbury.

Because it is a residential community, pollutants such as air and chemical in the ground are not a problem in this community - no heavy industry or traffic. Litter & loitering, associated with larger towns and cities are simply not found here. It is a small friendly town which centers on family.

And it boasts the finest schools in the area!

Can you tell I love Bolton? It is the best kept secret of the area.

Iron Mountain, MI, situated in the Western end of the Upper Peninsula serves as a quiet home environment for raising a family. Activities include camping, hiking, fishing, swimming, and community events. There is so much more to enjoy. You are within minutes of relaxing moments with your family and friends. Your back door is always a thing of beauty with the hills surrounding this historical town. The Pine Mountain Ski Jump is a land mark and yearly event that no one should miss.

I lived there for 1.5 years. It was the worse place I have ever been. I can say with experience that this town has nothing to offer. The majority of the people are disrespectful, unkind, and rude. The few that are friendly and nice are overshadowed by the the ones whom are not. I have traveled and lived in many states/towns/cities. I never in my life was so dissappointed in my decision to think that this small town would be a great place to live and raise a family. The words "Thank You" and "Please are not a part of their vocabulary. The people that were most kind and helpful deserve better than this blog, but the in my opinion it truly was hell on earth. I could not wait to get out.

Cakes by Victoria in downtown Matthews, NC is quite possibly the cutest little confection shop that I have ever seen! I just couldn't resist!! If you are in the market for a specialty cake for any occasion, then you must stop in. Be warned, however; the temptation for Victoria's sweet and oh so moist cakes is great....How could a creation that is so beautiful be so tasty too? I thought that for a cake to be beautiful, you had to sacrifice taste. My theory about that was wrong indeed!!

I had been planning my wedding for 6 months, and had yet to decide on a cake! I had went to 3 cake testings, plus tasted cakes at a wedding show, and was beginning to get a little frustrated...At one cake shop they were rude and abrupt, and the other two cake shop's cakes tasted like, well, they were commercial baked. I just wanted to find a cake that was moist, delicious, AND beautiful! I was beginning to think that I was going to have to just settle....It was on my way home from work when I saw it.

I noticed a new shop that I'd never noticed before. I wrote down the website written on the window. Later that evening, I looked up www.Cakesbyvictoriamoore.com and was pleasantly surprised. The cakes were beautiful! She had all occasions, from wedding cakes to groom cakes, to shower cakes to birthday. Surely they tasted bland I thought, but I decided to give her a call and try. I set up a tasting with Victoria,and was blown away! She let me taste the almond pound, hershey chocolate with amaretto, raspberry lemonade, red velvet, and banana chocolate chip. My mouth was in heaven! And there were more flavors had I wanted to taste more! My mind was made up! I ended up going with the traditional white cake with rolled fondant icing, and it was beautiful AND delicious!! Victoria also did my bridal shower which was a hummingbird cake. YUM!!

If you are in the market for a cake for any occasion, check out her cake shop, Cakes by Victoria in downtown Matthews, NC. You won't be disappointed!

Door County Wisconsin, sometimes called the "Cape Cod" of the Midwest, has so much to offer from great resorts, B&S, restaurants, activities and more.

Over the last 5 - 8 years or so, Door County is becoming a great location for producing super wines! About 5 wineries are gracing our lands here now, offering a terrific range of wines, from traditional fruit wines to cabernets.

We have enjoyed our winery tours, and have written about them on our website, http://www.DoorCountyNavigator.com - in fact we have a video wine tour there too.

Any questions about Door County? You can email me, Dan@DoorCountyNavigator.com or visit the site!

I'm doing research about my ancestors. My g'g'g'grandfather was John Lee Wallace, one of the founders of Dripping Springs, TX. He named one son (my g'g'grandfather) Edwin Henley (or Henly?) Wallace. I am trying to see if there was a connection to anyone in Henly, TX.

I was born there (1955) as was my father Charles(1929-2003). Very fond memories of Rockledge. Throughout my childhood growing up in Rockledge, is a part of my past and I would love to move back there. So many things have changed in Rockledge as with the times. Just wishing it was more beautiful now as it was back then.

My father, Wick Beckham, graduated from Lamont HS in 1920 and served as Principal circa 1928-29. He attended homecoming and associated reunions each year until around 1968 or so. I have some pictures of people attending a reunion of class of 1920 and probably of others as well. Some are not identified other than being from Lamont. Could someone put me in contact with a person that might be interested in the pictures.

I had heard others tell their tales of the good old boy network and slimy court system in Smyrna, but now I have seen it first hand. WHEN GIVEN THE OPTION OF A HEARING BEFORE A JURY IN COBB COUNTY COURT or A HEARING BEFORE THE JUDGE IN THE CITY OF SMYRNA ----- CHOOSE THE COBB COUNTY COURT...... IN FACT RUN THERE!!!!!!

Corrupt school system where teachers seduce young female students and the administration covers it up. Corrupt in that, in typical small-town fashion, last name dictates status in everything from little league basketball to "drunks in the tank."
If your familys' interest is in youth sports, Marshall County is not the place for you. As with most things in the county, your last name and status dictates how you and your kids are treated. The good officials go to games with names; the bad officials go to the schools/kids lower in stature who "don't deserve the best" or "who don't know the difference."
We've had coaches in the county tell our girls that, and I quote "girls can't play sports," "girls can't play basketball," and "girls should stay home and take care of the kids."
The no-name kids of the county have wound up simply being fodder for the fortunate few. Worse yet, noone seems to care.

The friendly city isn't that at all, if you don't believe travel highway #82 toward Albany, Georgia or back toward the FRIENDLY CITY-Tifton, the POLICE THERE HAVE THE NAPOLEON SYNDROME. VERY RUDE TO GUESTS IN THE CITY OF TIFTON. SPEEDING TICKETS ARE ABUNDANT IN THE SPEED TRAP CITY. A SOUTHERN CITY WHO HAS LOST IT CLASS, WHY? $$$$$$$$$$$.

I used to live in Columbus a loooong time ago. I am Debbie Dalton and my family lived on Chapin St. I have alot of people there that I haven't heard from in a very long time.
Columbus holds alot of memories for me. I enjoyed living in columbus and going uptown on a Friday Night and getting popcorn from the popcorn wagon at the four corners.
My parents Bob and Betty used to live there but moved to Wausau.
Anyone who wants to chat please let me know

Thank you to all who provided such care on January 1st at your lovely church in town. The red cross and volunteers served so wonderfully. The security in your town provided safety as we traveled from I 65 to your community for the night. What a lovely little town and such gracious service. What could have been a bad nightmeer is now a fond memory. Slept well with so many conviences, met lovely people and got up and off with a good breakfast and to see a staff that never slept. You are to be commended for your services and for your wonderful management of travel problems. Thank you to all--May 2008 bestow blessings to you all

We are the Roseville Visitors Association, and we promote the City of Roseville, and all the attractions, restaurants, and hotels in the area. We would like people to talk about what they like about this city and what they don't like. Also it would be nice to see different ideas on what they would like to see come to the city. Any comments would be appriciated.

Tallulah is a small town with unfriendly people. It is a high crime area and police don't protect its citizens. While living here, I have had lug nuts loosened on my vehicle, have been cussed, have dodged bullets, and threatened. The parents in this town let their teenagers run wild and drink. I can't think of anything positive to say about this area. The cost of living is extremely high for a small town with a large number of people unemployed. I'm looking for a way out.

Citizens, do you know the mayor is trying to replace Lifeline Ambulance with an ambulance company out of the Chicago Area charging Chicago area pricing. These prices are up to 3 times higher than you are paying now? Seems only the mayor is benefiting from this change. The people should demand to know why and what the benefit is. Lifeline Ambualnce has the reputation for being the best ambulance company in all of Northern Illinois, with cutting edge technology and highly skilled employees. Belvidere is lucky to have this available for them and at no charge to them. What is the Mayor thinking?? What will he be gaining while the citizens loose so much?

In November 2007, I flew out to Glasgow, MO to look at a house we wanted & check out the neighborhood. Glasgow, which sits on rolling hills with big trees next to the Missouri River, has a lot of beautiful older homes. The people I have met & spoken with were friendly & helpful. When I returned to Port Angeles, WA, I told everyone we were moving to "Mayberry" which just happens to be called Glasgow. This small town (with very low crime stats & just over 1200 people according to city-data.com), is charming! Many of the people I spoke with have the renovation spirit! When you visit Glasgow be sure to eat lunch at the bakery & then visit a shop around the corner that specializes in "made in Missouri" items & you, too, will appreciate how beautifully they've restored their buildings. Needless to say, we are very excited about our new home (which we will soon begin restoring) in Glasgow! I don't think we could have found a lovelier, friendlier place to live.
