A Mighty Heart: Sue Cranford

Ask anyone in Sue Cranford’s huge circle of friends to describe her, and most will just start laughing at the memory of a funny prank, a salty joke or the mere thought of her mile-wide smile and mischievous eyes.

Robert and Ellen Lalonde – A Life at Sea

Five years ago, Robert and Ellen Lalonde were living in Mt. Airy, North Carolina, with their youngest daughter, Alison, then 12 years old. Their older two children, 19 and 20, were away at school. The couple both had full time jobs, Robert worked as a skilled welder and Ellen, who homeschooled her children during the […]

Marsha Bemko: Reaching Back for Success with “Antiques Roadshow”

I have always found the smell of a musty, long forgotten box of uncertain treasures exciting. The things that someone, usually a family member, found important enough to carefully preserve for future generations are sometimes puzzling, sometimes deeply sentimental, but always interesting and fun. “Antiques Roadshow,” produced for PBS by WGBH in Boston, appeals to […]

Phyllis and Bob Poston: From Snowbirds to Seagulls

We call them Snowbirds; these visitors who arrive each winter from a variety of states, all of them cold this time of year.

By Connie Barnard

Tucked off Hwy. 17 Bypass in Murrells Inlet, in an old chicken barn, Ted Watts creates furniture destined […]

Jenean Todd – Preserving the Past, Inspiring the Future

Driving down Hwy. 17 in North Myrtle Beach today, it’s hard to visualize a time, 7500+ years ago, when Native Americans hunted and fished along these shores, making their homes in virgin forests of pine and cypress. Arrowheads and shards of pottery will soon be on display at the North Myrtle Beach Area Historical Museum, […]

Dixie Dugan: Artist in Residence

Dixie Dugan knew she had something special the day her first grade class was handed finger paint made of flour and tempera. Unlike her classmates’ chunky handprints in blobs of primary color, Dixie produced a softly muted creation of tiny fingers curved like fern fronds around a subtle watery surface. Amazing in its composition, color, […]
