Last week, a rare event occurred. For the first time in one-hundred fifty years, a super moon (when the moon is closest to the earth), a blue moon (the second full moon in a month), and a blood moon (eclipse) occurred on the same night. Unfortunately, I was only able to see a partial eclipse... Continue Reading →
The citizens of Cade's Crossing didn't always refer to Ruth Hazelton as the woman in black. Nor did they think of her as a loner. At one time, she was one of the most hospitable residents of the town as well as a fashionable dresser. Although Ruth never had children of her own, there was... Continue Reading →
