Flat Rock history via a road

Travelling back in time on a Flat Rock roadby Rob Neufeld             If you walk the one mile length of North Highland Lake Road in Flat Rock, you step nearly 200 years into the past.            At the east end, the 21st century reigns.  Fronting six-lane Spartanburg Highway, a super-Ingles sits above a bog; and a CVS store faces an Octopus Garden smoke shop, a chiropractor, a cell phone provider, and a six-lane avenue to I-26 a mile away .            Neither Ingles nor CVS carries the big…See More

Hollywood Pictures Inc in Fairview

In the 1920's it seemed the whole country was caught up in excitement about films and Hollywood.    Asheville and Western North Carolina were well aware of the hoopla of Hollywood.   In fact, Hollywood (or at least filmmaking) was already beginning to come to Western NC.I recently stumble across an article from the Jun 6 1926 issue of The Asheville Citizen Times which mentions that Hollywood Pictures Inc, was planning to film just south of Asheville, near Fairview.  But....was this really…See More

Hello, Kathryn SB - just stopping by here, as well.

If you ever need anything, let me know - I get a pretty good following on my Tender Graces blog and would be glad to put up any links to anything you need.

Kay, let me do my part in making even more people aware of your ncpoetlaureate.blogspot.com website--because it its certainly one of the most valuable resources around. I'm thinking that soon I can begin to create a poetry feature of a sort on "The Read," and feature links to your efforts. You can put a blog on this site that includes cut-and-paste excerpts from yours--as teasers--and then lead people to your laureate blog. There's also a group on this site--Sound-and-Sense Seekers--that involves some dynamic discussion among invitees. Thanks for all/Rob
