Flea Market

The Cedar Mountain Community Center is hosting a community-wide flea market from 8 a.m. until noon, Saturday, Sept 28.

Most tables have been rented, but if you have items to donate for the community center table, bring the item(s) to the center between 4 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. this Friday. If you have any questions, call Linda Young at (828) 877-5407.

We are looking forward to your participation either buying or selling. All table rental proceeds benefit the community center.

Community Center BBQ

The annual barbecue dinner, usually separate from regular monthly programs, will be held at 6:30 p.m., Monday, Oct. 14, at the Cedar Mountain Community Center at 10635 Greenville Highway. The donation is $10 for adults and $5 for children. Come have some great BBQ prepared by Jeff Caughey on the premises. We will be featuring National Geographic photo-grapher Charles (Chuck) O’Rear, who will be showing us some of his prize-winning photographs.

Pastor Returns To The Pulpit

Dr. Leland Holland, pastor of Rocky Hill Baptist Church, returned to the pulpit this past Sunday. He had taken a fall two weeks ago and broke and cracked several bones. Welcome back, Pastor Leland!

Kelly’s New Owners

Our own Regina Pace Bouye reluctantly had to turn over her business, Kelly’s, located across from Ingles in Brevard, as she is fighting a huge medical battle of acute Leukemia. Kelly’s was once owned and operated by Regina’s parents, Thelma (deceased) and Doug Pace, who lives on Reasonover Road in Cedar Mountain. They specialize in home cooked country-style food, which is what the new owners will continue to do, with some additions to the menu. The new owners are Courtney Stockman and Jason Cooper. Though born in Washington, N.C., Courtney just moved back to North Carolina from Alabama, as did Jason. You can reach Kelly’s at (828) 884-3725.

Studio 276 Now Open

Cedar Mountain’s newest Art Studio & Gallery, located where the gift shop Changes in Altitude had been, across from the Cedar Mountain Fire Department, is now open and thriving. Owner/artist Sarah Yarborough Dearbaugh welcomes folks to stop by and learn what she is doing, which is very different than anything our area offers. The new art gallery and learning center is called Studio 276. For schedules and other information, visit http://www.studio276.art.

Christine’s Corner

By Christine Pace

I am finally going through the “workshop” outside my home in order to gather items for this Saturday’s flea market at the community center. It has been three years since Joe and I moved to our “new” home and two years since my dear Joe passed away. Add to that a double-hip replacement and months of physical therapy for me and that now brings me to here. I’m just beginning to go through and unpack many boxes and bags of “treasures.” I’ll have two tables inside the community center this Saturday with something you really need. Stop by and say, “hello.”

As soon as the temperature drops to “normal,” I hope to get outside and go through even more. What I’ll bring this Saturday (8 a.m. to noon) is only the tip of the iceberg. I listed some larger or heavier items in the free classifieds of the paper to come out today as well – things I couldn’t haul myself to the flea market.

Speaking of re-sale, do you know that the Treasure Shop in Brevard has closed? They lost their lease and, so far, have no plans to reopen another shop. St. Philips’ resale shop next door says they will gladly take donations of clothing, shoes and other items, except electronics, between the hours of 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Saturday. All proceeds from items sold at St. Philip’s go to local charities. For more information, call (828) 884-9660.

Samuel’s Haven Thrift Shop lost its lease too when the building’s owner decided to sell. Nothing has opened up for them as yet says the manager. You can reach Samuel’s Haven at http://www.samuelshaven.org.

Keeping Up With Toby

(Toby is the daughter of Steve and Susan Huter of Cedar Mountain)

Toby Huter recently returned from her second time studying abroad in Korea. Toby has been learning since she was in the eighth grade (uh…wow), and meanwhile, “I just barely got by in level 1 Turkish on Rosetta Stone.” While Toby is only a sophomore, her dedication and multiple tours abroad have put her language skills far beyond those of most people her age.

“I have been self-teaching Korean from 8th grade, but when I was a junior in high school, I studied abroad through Rotary Youth Exchange in Korea for 10 months,” Toby said. “I only started formally taking Korean when I started at IU last year. I tested into sophomore Korean as a freshman. Then, after this summer, I tested out of junior Korean and am now taking senior level Korean.”

Through nights of exploring Seoul’s fascinating culture of 24-hour cafes (seriously, look it up), ancient palaces, temples and a street food culture that would put New York to shame, Toby was able to practice her Korean in a way that few are really bold enough to try, and, furthermore, develop an insatiable taste for traveling and living overseas.

“I will definitely go back (to Korea) soon, but how soon I’m not sure. I plan to study abroad in Taiwan next summer, then maybe Australia or Israel the summer after that,” she said. “I do hope to go to graduate school in Korea, so I for sure have that to look forward to.”

“While a lot of people (way too many, in my opinion) don’t seriously consider studying abroad in their time at school, it’s an opportunity that you should never pass up. Through the hundreds of avenues for study abroad possible with IU (Indiana University) and HLS (Hamilton Lugar School of Global and International Studies), you should talk to an advisor or someone you know who has studied abroad before if you’re the slightest bit interested.

“I was able to come back to somewhere I had been before but still see out of a new set of eyes. My advice is to find every opportunity and make it possible.”

Around The House

By Linda Young

Except for some trim work and maybe another shelf or two, my garden shed is done. I painted all but the metal doors, which I have special paint for. I have been painting the decking, railings and ramp, etc. I can only endure about three hours a day, so I just hope the weather holds out until I get done.

I badly need some leftover roofing shingles if somebody has some they don’t want. The ones on the ramp need to be replaced. I use them to slip proof my ramp.

My cute new Tuxedo cat, Nozee, is a handful. He gets into everything he possibly can. He thinks everything belongs on the floor. I yell “Hey” at him so much he probably thinks that’s his name. Lovable little cuddle bug though.
