  • INDEPENDENCE — Donors and volunteers for the River North Ministry Council, a group dedicated to the teaching and support of faith for offenders at the River North Correctional Center in Independence, were recently honored at a special ceremony held at Flat Rock United Methodist Church.

    Held Sept. 13 at the Independence church, the event recognized those who have helped fund chaplain services for the state prison’s inmates. The event included a light supper, a speaker and certificates of appreciation for those who have helped the cause.

  • HILLSVILLE – A local church that has kept seasonal traditions alive for nearly 70 years will be holding its annual fall festival on Saturday.

    The tradition of apple butter making started at Mountain Plains United Methodist Church back in the 1950s. The tradition has thrived, and the church members and people from the community still use the same recipes and procedures that were developed almost seven decades ago to cook apples over an open flame.

  • HILLSVILLE – Memories will remain dormant for another 50 years, as another time capsule has been buried in downtown Hillsville in front of the Former Carroll Drug on Main Street.

    Members of Friends of Hillsville helped coordinate the ceremony, and with the help of Tom Jackson (who owns the building where the new and original time capsules were buried), Joey Haynes, Bill Gallimore, Mayor Greg Crowder and Council Member Barry Jessup, a newly constructed capsule was placed back into the ground to be opened in 2068.

  • INDEPENDENCE ― At the game against the Alleghany Trojans on Aug. 24, the Grayson County Blue Devils football team was joined on the field by none other than the Blue Devil himself.

    The new mascot made his first public debut, donning a Grayson Blue Devils football jersey and carrying a flag bearing the message “Go Blue!”

    Throughout the game, he trotted along the base of the bleachers, giving hugs to younger fans, dancing along to the band as they played and participating with the cheerleading squad as they chanted messages of team spirit.
