  • A love of buildings shows they’re built for great things

    Last month my husband and I went to Charlotte, N.C., one of our favorite cities.

    We stayed uptown — which I would call downtown, but what do I know? — right in the middle of all the tall buildings and skyscrapers.

    I have a confession to make. I love buildings. I mean, I love, l-o-v-e buildings, like chocoholics love chocolate and pie-aholics love pie. Well, maybe not that much, but I love architecture and design, Gothic arches and flying buttresses.

  • New businesses enhance leisure activities

    Patricia McDaniel has been an avid fisherman since she was a young girl growing up in Grant County and still goes “pond hopping” on various farms in the area, where she used to fish with her father.

    Dan Alexander, a Trimble County native now living in Carrollton, learned to play pool when he was about 5 years old. Today, he has an eye on turning pro.

    Both are entrepreneurs who are hoping their passions will fuel their businesses and provide new recreational opportunities for Carrollton’s residents.
