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

All the Little Creatures

Under the ancient hemlocks in a secret valley high in the hills

All the little creatures came to a great meeting among the rills



A secret lake, its waters a deepest purple hue

Fed by springs falling from cliffs and the clearest mountain dew



Gives magical renewal to the Creator’s hurt children from pain

From senseless human violence and hunter’s depredations again



The bears came first, ponderously padding through in command of all

The ‘coons… Continue

Cousin Eugene Fights the Train

Ed Stephens of Dillsboro has a problem with the Great Smoky Mountain



Railroad. According to the Sylva Herald Stephens says the railroad is abandoning



old train cars on his property. Stephens “called them and asked them to remove the



cars.” “They told me to get a lawyer.” Now this wouldn’t be much more than a



‘tempest in a teapot’ ‘cept Stephens drove his pick-up truck up on the tracks and



left it there for a couple of days. Now why would he… Continue

NIghtime in the Country

Nighttime in the country, the shadows dark and deep

Fireflies all a’ glitter, the frogs chirp a roaring peep!



The critters of the night move stealthily from bush to hay

The baby skunks and tiny possums come out to snack and play



The riot of nocturnal flowers, their scent so sweet and full

The first cutting of the hay, the greased implements in the shed of tools



I gaze across the land, breathe in the wonder of the night

Could it be that I am… Continue

First laid down untold eons ago



The foundations of the Appalachians, strong and cold

Hidden away from prying eyes, secrets in the earth



These ancient mountains, the backbone of Pangaea

super continent, of the entire world!



The super Appalachians fierce and proud,

stretching to Scotland--all the way to Africa!



Mighty Granite, Schist, Gneiss, Shale, Igneous and Sandstone rocks,

Black Like Me

In 1959, the writer John Howard Griffin decided to go through with a daring, personal experiment. Using drug medication and a sun lamp, he transformed his skin to change from a white man to a black man. He shaved his head and added a dark cream. His plan was to tour around the South and write about his experiences under a secret guise. Close friends and family thought he was crazy when he discussed the idea, but he had such conviction to find out for himself what it would be like for a white… Continue

Air Conditioning

Do you have air conditioning? We do-however at the moment-it's broken. Back in the day, when The Deer Hunter built our house-we couldn't afford central air-but 7 years ago he could stand the heat no longer and he and a friend installed central heat and air in our house. Apparently-I've grown very used to it-cause for the past 2 days I have been quite miserable. At bedtime last night-it was 84 degrees in our living room-not the best temperature for sleeping.



When I was growing up,… Continue
