I

always looked forward to September with both dread and excitement. I hated the fact that school was starting back. Gone would EHWKHORQJOD]\IXQGD\VRIĂ€VKLQJORFDO ponds, damming Dearing Branch, building tree houses, and camping out in the back yard. But fall also meant hunting seasons were near. Dove season opened soon after school started, easing the pain a little. I could not wait until squirrel season opened, usually in September back then, and rabbit and quail seasons followed in November. When I was growing up, no deer hunting was allowed anywhere near me. There were not enough deer to hunt, and the Department of Natural Resources was stocking deer and trying to get them established. By the time I started high school in the mid-1960s, it was still rare to see one. If anyone saw a deer crossing the road we talked about it for a week. 'DGG\GLGQ WĂ€VKDQGKXQWHGOLWWOHEXWZH always got to go to dove shoots on Saturdays during season, and we spent many hours IROORZLQJRXUWZRSRLQWHUVWKURXJKĂ€HOGV QHDUWKHKRXVHWRĂ€QGTXDLO%LUGKXQWLQJZLWK Daddy was always special. Since Daddy didn't get to go hunting except on Saturdays, I squirrel hunted by myself or with friends. We often went after school, and we hunted squirrels all day on Saturdays when bird season was not open. I could walk out my back door and be in the ZRRGVLQĂ€YHPLQXWHV,NQHZWKHORFDWLRQVRI the squirrels' favorite white oak trees and every pine where they liked to cut pine cones. One very special place was behind my house on a ridge beside Dearing Branch. There was a huge white oak tree about threefourths of the way up the slope, and it was always loaded with acorns in the fall. It was also usually loaded with squirrels. I spent hours sitting near that tree waiting on bushytails to come to feed. It was a magical place for me. ,KXQWHGZLWKDVKRWJXQRUDULĂ H In those much-younger days I could shoot squirrels in the head with my .22, and I used it after the leaves had fallen, but the shotgun was better early in the season when the trees were full of leaves and the squirrels were harder to see. www.kitchendrawer.net

One trip with my friend Hal stands out in my mind, even after 50 years. We had ridden our bicycles to Harrison's pond. It was about ÀYHPLOHVIURPP\KRXVHEXWZHWKRXJKW little about the distance. Harrison's pond ZDVDIDYRULWHÀVKLQJKROHLQWKHVXPPHU but this time we had our guns. Hal shot a squirrel with his over-and-under .410 and ZKLFKKDGDULà HEDUUHORQWRSDQGD shotgun barrel underneath. (I always wanted one, but my daddy said I could make do with what I had.) The squirrel ran into a tree hollow about 20 feet off the ground. We never let anything get away if there was any possible way to get it, but getting that squirrel back seemed impossible. We came up with a plan. I rode back to my house, got a saw and hatchet, and headed back to where Hal waited by the tree in case the squirrel came out. We cut that tree down about three feet off the ground, planning on getting the squirrel out. After we cut the tree down, we looked into the hollow stump and saw fur. I grabbed it and pulled out a dead squirrel. It had died after crawling into the tree. While we were celebrating getting that squirrel, I noticed the wood chips and sawdust in the stump moving. I looked in and saw more fur, so I shot into the tree again and pulled out another squirrel. That made us look closer. We again saw fur, shot into the tree, and pulled out another squirrel. We got three squirrels out of that hole! We ate anything we caught or killed, and three squirrels made a decent number for squirrel and dumplings that night. My mother could cook anything. I often thought she could take an old hunting boot, season and cook it, and it would turn out as a gourmet meal! We ate a lot of squirrel, rabbit, quail, dove, and all kinds of fish. My mother often said a fish was big enough to keep and clean if it would make the grease smell. She especially liked the crunchy tips of the tail and fins after deepfrying little bream. I have great memories of growing up wild in Georgia and hope many kids are making those memories right now as their summers fade into fall. Read more from Ronnie at KWWSÀVKLQJDERXW FRP 7

Bette’s Health Food Center

Bette Richter

Bette’s store on Solomon Street has been providing Griffin with healthy alternatives, whether food, medicine, or other items to promote general well being, for 26 years. When Bette purchased the store from her friend and mentor, she really began to understand, both for herself and her family, the importance of eating better. Bette’s main goals are to educate people and to provide alternatives to doctors and medicines when other solutions are available. While she knows that medicine has its place, she has seen better results with natural methods in many cases. Products from Dr. Oz are big sellers with great results. Recently, Bette’s has observed increased interest in healthy alternatives. Bette and her staff see at least one new face each day and hear the stories that come with the new customers. One customer who suffered from a constant ringing of the ears and had been to four doctors with no results found a solution at Bette's. Over the years, Bette has added services, including those provided by a massage therapist and a nutritionist, that vastly improve the lives of her customers. Diane Johnson, the massage therapist on staff since January 2012, specializes in Chinese, Swedish, deep tissue, and medical massage. Beginning in November, she will be certified in cupping therapy. Melody Roseau, an herbal specialist, runs Compass, a state-­ of-­the-­art nutritional program, out of Bette’s. Compass is a system that gives bioelectrical feedback for every organ and system in your body. It’s non-­invasive, takes five to ten minutes, and provides a full reading that can help guide your journey to health. Bette’s Health Foods is an incredibly valuable resource to our community by providing quality health products and life-­improving counsel and services. Bette and the staff follow market trends and keep up with what is in demand. Many customers, even those from as far away as Atlanta, say she has the best selection of products around. “One of the best things about coming to work at the store is seeing how much our customers appreciate the help we provide,” Bette says. “It helps keep me inspired, seeing them feel better.”

Christian Women’s Center

Stephanie Summers

There are now even more opportunities for local shoppers to help women as they buy. The new Thrifty by Design Boutique, managed by Sherry Gilreath, offers higher-­end unique clothing, accessories, housewares, and gifts. Proceeds from the boutique will help fund The Well, a volunteer-­staffed crisis center for women scheduled to open soon. Of course, the Christian Women's Center Thrift Store in the same shopping center continues to offer shoppers bargain merchandise as well as a chance to help women and children; all profits from the CWC Thrift Store go to the general operating fund of the CWC shelter programs in nearby Sunny Side. CWC Executive Director Stephanie Summers says, “I like to say that the thrift store is for those who like to dig for treasure; the boutique is for those who like to see (the merchandise) as it should be.” Also very popular at Thrifty by Design are jewelry, bookmarks, and magnets handmade by Women of The Well, residents of the CWC's extended shelter residential program. Visit www.cwcga.org to connect with the Christian Women’s Center, including the thrift store, the new boutique, and the shelter. The CWC seeks volunteers and monetary gifts for their ministries and welcomes donated items for their stores; they even accept clothing for recycling. Call the CWC at 770-­227-­3700 for more information. Like the Christian Women’s Center Thrift Store and Thrifty by Design Boutique on Facebook to learn about special offers at the shops and ways to help the CWC accomplish its mission of providing refuge to women and children in crisis. One way to help is to sign up for the golf tournament to benefit the CWC to be held Monday, October 14 at Sun City Peachtree. The cost is $400 for a four-­person team if registered and paid by September 30; after that, it is $500. The price includes a cart, all green fees, and a lunch buffet. Prizes will be awarded. Tier and hole sponsors are also needed.

Holly’s House

Chris and Holly Emery

Though the name may sound like that of a little antique shop, Holly's House is actually a large antique mall, and it's growing every day. The 30,000-­square-­foot building, formerly a warehouse, already hosts 17 vendors and will eventually have room for 30-­35 more. Owners Chris and Holly Emery fulfilled a dream when they opened Holly's House this past January. They had dealt in new furniture before, but never antiques. “This is more fun,” says Chris. The Emerys believe that their wide selection of new furniture sets Holly's House apart from similar businesses, but they also specialize in antiques, collectibles, and vintage furniture. Chris and Holly are pleased with the response to their new endeavor. Customers from all over Georgia and even out of state have been keeping the family-­owned-­and-­operated enterprise busy. Even the couple's three-­year-­old son, Shaun Michael, is part of the team. If you come at the right time of day, he might give you a guided tour of the store. Holly's House is seeking qualified vendors of quality merchandise as they enter a new phase of remodeling to keep up with demand. Located at the intersection of Williamson Road and South Pine Hill, Holly's House offers easy access, plenty of parking, and affordable wares. “I've had a lot of customers tell me that we have the best prices around,” Holly says. Chris, Holly, and Shaun Michael see a bright future for antique shopping in Griffin. Chris says, “Griffin is becoming an antiques destination.”

Ryan Rogers Griffin native Ryan Rogers has been involved in the turf industry ever since he worked on golf courses as a teenager. Motivated by his background in the industry, Ryan received a degree in Turf Management from Abraham Baldwin Agricultural College in Tifton, Georgia. In 2001, Ryan started Rogers Turf Care. As the company grew over the years, it added more employees. These days, Ryan stays busy all year round managing two crews for Rogers Turf Care. Rogers offers landscape design and installation as well as year-­round lawn maintenance and irrigation. The company has done large projects for local residents, including patios, outdoor fireplaces and kitchens, and even waterfalls. Rogers provides services for both residential and commercial clients. Most of the lawns serviced by Rogers Turf Care are in Griffin, but the company also serves surrounding areas. They welcome new customers and even offer a free consultation to go over new clients' needs. “I love being outside and being able to do what I enjoy,” says Ryan. “Seeing the finished product look so great and seeing the customer’s reaction to the transformation of their lawn is the best.” Between growing the business and spending time with his family—wife Amanda, three-­year-­old son Parker, and one-­year-­ old daughter Brinley—Ryan's days are full. He jokes that his yard is the last to get done. He’s not complaining, though. The family feels blessed to be a part of the community and looks forward to meeting new customers and friends.

A Sears Fairy Tale BY DENISE MADDOX

Could you be living in a part of Sears and Roebuck history? If you live in a home built between 1908 and 1940, you very well could be.

I

have had a fascination, some would say obsession, with old houses dating back to my childhood. For years, I have walked the sidewalks of historical Griffin and dreamed of owning one of these beautiful old homes. Interestingly enough, I was not drawn to the large, ornate mansions that line the streets of Maple and East College, but more and more I found myself taking a particular interest in the small and architecturally unique homes that my later research would tell me are “Cotswold” or “storybook” houses. Blame it on the Brothers Grimm, but these houses spoke to the little girl in me who used to believe that fairies danced under toadstools after midnight and that elves made shoes for poor cobblers as they slept.

w w w.k it chendr aw er.net

This particular type of home, also known as the English cottage or “Anne Hathaway” (of Shakespeare fame, not the actress of today) was very popular during the 1920s and '30s. There are many storybook homes in the nooks and crannies of the quaint, older neighborhoods of Griffin. Once you’ve identified one, you’ll start seeing them everywhere! It was my fascination with storybook homes that serendipitously led me to research Sears “kit homes,” as Sears sold many kits for this style during the 1920s and '30s. (Imagine—in those days, you could actually order an entire house from the Sears catalog!) You can see photos of these homes by researching old Sears kit home catalogs. Many have a distinct S-shaped feature on the chimney. Some researchers insist this is a guarantee of Sears home, but most say this was a popular ornamental feature of the day and has nothing to do with Sears. I know of one beautiful example on East College with this chimney feature, but only the owner or a previous owner may know if this is a true Sears home.

13


I have just begun my own research on these beautiful and unique kit homes which were shipped by rail and put together on site. There are many, many books, websites, and blogs devoted to these hard-to-find houses, most notably Finding the Houses that Sears Built by Rose Thornton. Kit homes are sometimes in the storybook style, but many other designs were also available. A little detective work may help you discover if you are living in one of these rare gems. Here are some of the most important clues I’ve gathered thus far: y If a house was not built between 1908 and 1940, it is probably not a Sears kit home. These were the years during which Sears manufactured and sold their kit homes; however, there is some debate as to whether some homes built slightly later could still be Sears homes. In this case, it would be important to look at the rest of the clues to determine whether a house is a Sears kit home. y Stamped lumber in the basement or attic. Sears kit homes' framing members were stamped with letters and numbers to help with construction. These marks could help prove that you have a kit home. y Shipping labels. These are sometimes found on the back of millwork (baseboard molding, door and window trim, etc.). y Check house design using a book with good quality photos and original catalog images.

14

y Look in the attic and basement for any paperwork (original blueprints, letters, etc.) that might reveal you have a Sears home. y Courthouse records. From 1911 to 1933, Sears offered home mortgages. Using grantor records, you may find a few Sears mortgages and therefore, Sears homes. y Hardware fixtures. Sears homes built during the 1930s often have a small circled “SR” cast into the bathtub in the lower corner (furthest from the tub spout and near the floor) and on the underside of the kitchen or bathroom sink. y Goodwall sheet plaster. This was an early quasisheetrock product offered by Sears and can be a clue that you have a kit home. y Unique column arrangement on the front porch and five-piece eave brackets. y Original building permits. In cities that have retained original building permits, you’ll often find “Sears” listed as the home’s original architect.

If you know that you are living in a Sears kit home or, after researching, believe that you may be living in one, please contact me at maddoxdenise59@yahoo.com. I am very interested in FRPSLOLQJDSKRWRERRNRI6HDUVKRPHVLQ*ULIÀQDQGDQRWKHURI local Cotswold cottages. I look forward to hearing from anyone who VKDUHVDIDVFLQDWLRQZLWKROGKRPHVRUNQRZVPRUHDERXW*ULIÀQ·V part in Sears kit home history.

HOW DOES A NATIONALLY KNOWN PHOTOGRAPHY SHOW HAPPEN IN PIKE COUNTY?

SlowExposures,

a photography event featuring the rural American South, is held annually during the last two weekends in September. This year, some 850 images were entered by photographers from 15 states, coast to coast. We’ve been covered by CNN, the Atlanta JournalConstitution, Atlanta magazine, Southern Living, and well-known photo blogs from across the U.S. and France. It began in 2002. That year, we cajoled everyone we knew to dig up and enter some old snapshots so we could make a show. Even then, before Facebook, before Twitter, and before the widespread adoption of digital format, we received some incredible images from people near and far. We knew we were onto something that resonated with people. Every year, the 70 images chosen by our guest jurors manage both to pay homage to and confound the stereotypes of this region. Among the most interesting aspects of this homegrown undertaking are the people who make it happen and the reasons why they devote a considerable measure of their time doing it. “Why” is the question our SlowExposures volunteers asked Debbie Fleming Caffery, well-­known themselves back photographer and teacher in January as we began the process of putting together the 11th edition. We think the success of the show has everything to do with the uniqueness of this place and the people who welcome over 1,000 visitors every year.

Our group came up with some basic ideas: Place matters. Art matters. Community matters. When the three are mixed together by the SlowExposures volunteers—both natives and immigrants to the American South—a peculiar alchemy occurs. Differences in backgrounds, ZMTQOQWV[K]T\]ZM[IVLXWTQ\QKITINÅTQI\QWV[ fall away in the creative challenge of putting on the show. We don’t discuss religion or politics. Some of us are photographers; many IZMVW\6M^MZ\PMTM[[\PI\PIZL̉\W̉LMÅVMQLMI of place communicates itself to people from across the U.S.—photographers, collectors, photography lovers, and local folks. We all feel it. It was the impetus for the show—the “slow” in SlowExposures means “slow down and look at the landscape.” Back in 2002, we were reacting to the proliferation of cookie-cutter subdivisions and the destruction of our historic buildings. Now, every year, we stage photography exhibits all over Pike County in buildings that are listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Our visitors use words like “genuine,” “authentic,” and “welcoming” to describe their experience of the show. One year, renowned photographer Sylvia Plachy arrived late one night from New York City by way of China where she was opening a show. As she got out of the car

Two workshops, Photography 101 and 102, will demystify digital picture taking and serve as inspiration for future SlowExposures entrants.

My son once told me that his granddaddy had to eat sugar-free food because he had rabies. I quickly corrected him and told him that it was diabetes.

Sneezes are little showers coming out of your nose.

Is that constipation on the freezer door?

Do bears burp? Are wolves good guy or bad guys? They’re bad guys I fink. If you swallow blood, do you die? No wait I’m thinking of laba (lava). Mom you know those fings that look like a banana that hangs between two trees like dis? Hammock! We need four dem for me, char, piper and you! Are zombies real? Did Jesus ever have head lice? Last night during dinner my three year old goes to the kitchen for some water and I hear a little voice ask from the depths of the fridge, “Hey, you want a beer while I’m in here?” Winning.

I know why they call kindergarten kinderGARDEN. Cause they’re planting the seeds of the future.

When asked by the doctor at his checkup before school started recently if he had any problems, my seven-year-old grandson responded, “ I have 99 problems but my swag isn’t one of them.”

Mom, were the 80’s real and how can I get there?

Was there color when you were a kid or was everything black and white?

Me (to a very tired 4 year old): “Poor baby...you look pooped!” Tired child (thinks about it):“Nah......I think it’s just gas.” Mickey Mouse KEEPS asking me so many questions!

Why don’t you walk a mile in my shoes MOM, literally?! Would you like to see how hard MY life is?

You know, this building is kinda raggedy and they just patched up parts to make it look good. It’s like one of those emotionally unstable hot chicks.

here are text messages that change your day. Sometimes the change is for the better, and sometimes it’s for the worse. I got one of those messages the other day, and this time the change was for the better. Soccer practice was canceled. Soccer practice—we love it. Really, we do. It’s fun to see our kids get better and have fun running around with their friends. Running through the grass and chasing a ball is always better than sitting on the couch watching a digital version of yourself chase a ball for you. But sometimes soccer, or any childhood sport for that matter, can get out of hand. If my sons keep playing, they’ll spend a significant portion of their lives on the road riding from one game to the next. I have my concerns. Other people have told me that I need to think long term—think about what soccer could do for us, think about the college scholarship. College scholarship? “No pressure, son, but if you don’t play well today it could end up costing the family somewhere around $54,000. Now get in your car seat.” At some point in this country, it became acceptable to stop enjoying your kids and to start using them as vehicles for reliving your failed childhood endeavors or as the ticket to free college tuition. Working for a college scholarship is great if you’re...I don’t know...four or five years away from graduating from high school. It’s not such a good idea when you’re four.

parents? More and more, they move back in with Mom and Dad so that they can have the childhood they never had—at 30. Aren’t they so cute at that age? So earlier this week, my two boys took a few steps backward in their journeys toward college soccer scholarships. If, however, there is a college offering a scholarship in jumping on a trampoline, things are looking pretty good. At the time of this writing, I think that Auburn University is the only school offering such a scholarship. Instead of learning how to dribble, pass, and steal, my kids jumped on the trampoline with their dad, and they learned a lot—like how to laugh, and how to get up and jump again after falling headfirst off the trampoline. (Don’t tell their mom about that one.) There was another lesson learned too. They learned that their dad enjoys spending time with them even when there is no schedule, no agenda. One of these days, my kids will quit playing soccer. It might be next year, or it might be when they turn 60. I don’t know, and I really don’t care; but as long as they are alive, they can’t quit being men. Once they become men, I hope they remember all of the lessons they learned—like lessons on the trampoline with their dad.

We’ve gotten things mixed up in terms of what it means to be a parent. When our kids are barely old enough to walk, we almost expect them to be adults. Once a lady told my wife that something was probably wrong with our then one-year-old because he wasn’t using complete sentences. Her four-month-old was already diagramming sentences, writing a doctoral thesis, and was a minority owner of the New York Jets. We never stop to think about the consequences if our kids get burned out on our dreams for them before they even turn 12. What then? What if they get the scholarship and don’t know what to do with it because their parents were more like coaches than, well,

Sit. Stay. Come.

These are  commands  you  would  be  unlikely  to  bark  at  children,  but,  if   you’re  wise,  you  do  use  these  and  others  in  talking  to  your  four-­‐legged   friends.  Dogs  can  understand  and  respond  to  short  requests.

PROFILE BRUCE COOK | cooked glass creations

A typical day for Bruce Cook involves spending hours cutting glass and firing it in a kiln, but he hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always spent his days this way. Bruce Cook retired from a utility company in San Diego, California, and worked with stained glass as a hobby. Fifteen years ago, he

wanted to do something with glass that allowed him more freedom than stained glass, so he began learning the technique of glass fusing. Now, he is a glass fusion artist who designs art through Cooked Glass Creations.

At one time, Bruce didn’t even know what glass fusion was, but after a suggestion from his stained glass instructor, he took a few classes and found that the new technique gave him options that stained glass did not. Stained glass has limited artistic possibilities, mostly just glass panels. However, with

Bruce started out making larger pieces and selling them to galleries. When his wife came home one day wearing a pair of fused glass earrings, Bruce told her he could

For jewelry, Bruce designs the shape and cuts the glass with a glass cutter. After the glass has been cut, it must be cleaned to remove all oil and fingerprints that linger on the surface. Next, two pieces of glass must be carefully placed and aligned in the kiln, with one piece on top of the other. For small pieces like earrings, it takes around two-and-a-half hours in the kiln at roughly 1,500 degrees Fahrenheit to bring the glass to a full fuse, and then four hours to cool. Bruce states that it is rather time consuming, but on a good day he can make up to

have made them. After that, he began making earrings, bracelets, pendants, and rings.

18 pairs of earrings before he has to start the process of attaching the findings (clasps, wires, etc.).

The process by which Bruce makes his creations is quite intricate. First, he buys the individual sheets of glass. Some of the sheets are colored; some have designs such as stripes, dragonflies, or cats; and others have etchings. Some of the sheets are dichroic glass. Although dichroic glass dates back to the 4th century AD, modern dichroic glass was developed by NASA for use

The process for making larger objects such as bowls is slightly different. Larger objects typically require two layers of glass, since one layer is too thin and can deform at high temperatures. The heating process is slower, normally rising by 300 degrees per hour. If the glass is heated any faster, it will undergo thermal shock, which means it will break or crack. (Bruce compares

in dichroic filters and satellites and can be very expensive. The sheets of glass range in size from three inches by three inches to 12 square inches.

it to freezing a wine glass and then running it under hot water until it cracks.) This heating process takes significantly longer, about nine hours in the kiln, and then the object must cool down all night. After it cools, the two pieces of glass have finally fused together. For example, if a white sheet of glass was fused with a blue sheet on top, the resulting piece becomes

light blue in color. This newly fused piece is placed on a stainless steel or clay mold to shape the glass, a process called slumping. The glass and mold go back into the kiln and are heated to a lower temperature, around 1,250 degrees, so the glass becomes malleable and is formed into the desired shape. The entire process takes two days. “Glass fusion is not an LQVWDQWJUDWLÀFDWLRQ hobby,” Bruce says. “You don’t come back after an

hour and a half and have something. It takes patience, and it’s not user friendly.” But he loves it. Bruce freely shares

his artistic processes hoping to get other people interested in the art form or to help them gain an appreciation for what he and other glass fusers do. “I feel that the world will never have too many artists.” Bruce sells his creations both online and at craft fairs. He participates in roughly 20 shows a year, such as the Cotton Pickin’ Fair, the Doc Holliday Festival, Art in the Garden at the UGA campus in Griffin, the Shakerag Festival, and the Griffin Mayfling, where he won first place for his work this year. He also travels to shows as far away as Snellville, Kennesaw, and Smyrna.

Bruce teaches classes at Sun City Peachtree, where he lives, and also offers private lessons. He is actively trying to find a convenient way to teach group lessons, which is difficult due to the use of the kiln and the long firing and cooling processes. “I love working with glass,” Bruce says. “Sometimes it’s hard to predict how it’s going to come out. Sometimes it comes out as expected and is good, sometimes it’s radically different, and that’s okay. Sometimes it’s just not good at all. It’s all an experiment.”

Because Robinson would be under intense scrutiny and would face personal attacks from the countless LQGLYLGXDOVZKRZLVKHGWRĂ&#x20AC;JKWWKHPDUFKRISURJUHVV he would be forced to demonstrate a near-superhuman level of grace under pressure.

ne of the most compelling things about the city of /ZQNÅV is its history. Though they're not always pretty, there are many tales about the places that surround us, and it seems that most everyone has a story of strange happenings. In this season when we look to the spooky to entertain and excite us, it’s time to share those stories and to appreciate the rich history of our town. Whether you believe in ghost stories or not, they are there for the pondering, the giggles, and the gasps. Now, Kitchen Drawer looks into some of /ZQNÅV¼[ most notorious haunted hangouts. Read on…

Griffin Hotel One location with a history of unusual evMV\[Q[\PMWTL/ZQNÅV0W\MT\PMJ]QTLQVO in which Slices is currently located). Built in 1910 and operated as a hotel until 1945, the /ZQNÅV 0W\MT was an incredibly important place for our town. Most major events and WNÅKQIT ceremonies took place in the ballroom on the main ÆWWr. In 1974, the building became a nursing home. There are many eerie stories about the building, which has aged into the perfect setting for a good scare. Winding hallways, peeling walls, and multiple dark staircases add to the history, beauty, and absolute creepiness of the old hotel. 0I]V\ML house expert Liz Smallwood can tell you some of these stories, as she’s been researcPQVO\PM/ZQNÅV0W\MTfor an upcoming 51

The fact that these odd events began after the conversation with the curious neighbors makes this story one of the eeriest we have heard. project with Tracy Wallace, owner of Bank Street Café. There is the tale of two construction workers who had been warned to be out of the building before dark, as it becomes nearly impossible not to get lost in it after dark. Ignoring the warning, the workers stayed late and did indeed become stuck inside—that is, until a dimly lit ÅO]ZM holding a lantern showed up to lead them outside. When they reached the exit, no one was there. At least in this case, the ghosts at the /ZQNÅV Hotel appeared to be friendly. The strangest story of the /ZQNÅV Hotel is about the basement, which includes a lowered area, much like an old-fashioned arena. It is rumored that in the early days of the hotel, the lower basement served as a man versus bear ÅOP\QVg pit. That's right...man versus BEAR. Men would reportedly gather round and place bets on the ÅOP\[ (Could this have anything to do with /ZQNÅV High’s longtime mascot? Who knows?)

Curious Neighbors When Kitchen Drawer asked our readers to share strange occurrences, we were excited (and a little terZQÅML to receive this story of an encounter with what appeared to be two curious neighbors. Jesse Lee and his girlfriend recently relocated to /ZQNÅV and rented an old Victorian house on Hill Street.

One day when Jesse was mowing the back yard, he was startled to ÅVL a man and a woman suddenly standing at the back fence. Jesse wrote, “The ÅZ[\ question they asked me was, 'Is this house haunted?'” The question unnerved Jesse a bit, but he explained that he’d seen nothing out of the ordinary. The man spoke about work, gave Jesse a home address, and invited him to come by for a visit anytime. Several days later, Jesse and his girlfriend were running errands in the neighborhood and decided to take their visitors up on the invitation to stop in. When they arrived at the address they had been given, Jesse and his girlfriend found a house that had apparently been vacant for some time, with windows boarded up and shutters falling off. Jesse recalls:

“My girlfriend turned to me and asked, 'Do you think they were ghosts?'” Jesse reports that there have been a number of strange happenings in their home since that day: “Things moved in the house, strange noises in the attic, and the light coming on in the basement in the middle of the night...you could see the light coming through the old ÆWWZJWIZL[º The fact that these odd events began after the conversation ersation with the curious neighbors makes this story one of the eeriest we have heard.

120 East Taylor Street The next one hits close to home, as it takes place in the Liberty Technology/Kitchen Drawer building. Liberty employee Ben Gibson (Gibs) recalls his second day at work in November 2010. He was the ÅZ[\ to arrive in the building. As he sat in his cubicle starting his workday, he suddenly heard footsteps running behind him. Turning around, he saw no one there. After checking a few other cubicles, he returned to his seat, only to hear the running again, this time coming from the opposite direction. *INÆML Gibs searched the lower level of the building.

As he searched a hallway, he clearly heard a voice whisper “Ben.” Fast forward to this past summer. On a day off, Gibs and his wife, Deborah, stopped by Liberty Technology to pick mly lit something up.

name. His wife didn’t hear anything. (Because of this story, most of us are reluctant to work late around here these days!)

Enhanced photo of apparition captured on film in Griffin. The Bailey-‐Tebault House Perhaps the most well-known haunted house (or “haunted house” for you naysayers) is the historical Bailey-Tebault house on Meriwether Street. Members of the local historical society and other people who spent time in the house reported unexplained sounds and items moved from their places. It was said that a curtain in an upstairs bedroom frequently shifted positions. A young boy visiting the home insisted his parents help him ÅVL the “man in red” that he had met on the servant stairs, but there was no such person present. In June of 2011, agents from the Georgia S o c i e t y o f t h e Pa r a n o r m a l S c i e n c e s conducted an investigation of the BaileyTebault house and gave a full report, which included a number of peculiar episodes. Of all the photos taken, only one came back with a [QOVQÅKIV\ image, and it is hard to make out. H owe ve r, t h e E V P ( e l e c t r o n i c vo i c e phenomenon) recordings taken by the crew are nothing less than chilling. In one instance, an investigator prompts a spirit to ÅVQ[P the old “Shave and a Haircut” routine. After several seconds, faint knocks can be heard. In another recording, you can hear a woman’s voice faintly warn, “It isn’t safe.” In one room, the word “no” is heard over the voices of the investigators. Investigators reported seeing two apparitions, one wearing long white sleeves, e n t e r i n g t h e a r ch i ve s t o r a ge r o o m . 53


At 1am, while the crew was in the sitting parlor, an agent observed what appeared to be a human ÅO]ZM obstructing the light from the lobby entrance. All agents were accounted for at the time; the gray shadow ÅO]ZMKW]TLVW\JMM`XTIQVML Though many current and former historical society staff agree that strange things occur at Bailey-Tebault, there is seemingly nothing dangerous. Future brides and grooms who visit while planning their weddings often get a kick out of the home’s history and somewhat spooky reputation. No matter what you believe about the house in terms of the paranormal, it is certainly a local treasure, one that is beautifully preserved by the hard work of our historical society.

The haunted trestle off Teamon Road.

. . . . .

The Trestle Most of us who grew up locally have heard stories from “the trestle.” Located a bit off the roadside of Trestle Road (off Teamon Road), the trestle has been a popular spot for “playing hooky” for generations. One legend says that in the early 1900s, a train derailed there and many people perished. Later visitors to the trestle claimed to feel the tracks vibrating, see lights in the distance, and even hear the train whistle and the screams of the victims. Although one of the last owners of the trestle eventually posted that this derailment did not occur near /ZQNÅV some still claim to have seen and heard strange things during their time at the trestle. 54 .

Fall Fun About that project that Liz Smallwood and Tracy Wallace have been working on—they have teamed up to transform the old /ZQNÅV Hotel into Sinister Suites, a Halloween attraction that is a must-do for local residents and visitors. Liz and her crew are working day and night to transform the space. Beginning October 3 through the Halloween season, it will be open Thursdays 7-11pm, Fridays and Saturdays 7pmmidnight, and Sundays 7-10pm Tickets will be available at the door. Keep up with the fun by following Sinister Suites on Facebook. Looking for more Halloween happenings? Check out the /ZQNÅn Zombie Walk on Facebook. On Saturday, October 26 at 3pm, the ÅZ[\ annual zombie invasion will begin in the Food Depot parking lot. Anyone who brings canned goods and non-perishable items to donate is eligible to participate. You can get more information on becoming undead for the day by emailing the hosts at gZQNÅVbWUJQM_ITS(OUIQTKWU Whether you are a believer or a skeptic, it’s hard to deny the thrill that this time of year brings. We at Kitchen Drawer hope you get out there and have some local fall fun!

SHOULD ANYONE

CARE ABOUT THE ATLANTA

HAWKS? BY TAYLOR GANTT

After  years  of  mediocrity  and  playoff   ineptitude, the  Hawksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;  2013-­14  season  is   looking  bleak.  Is  there  any  silver  lining  for   the  basketball  fans  of  Atlanta??

fresh start and began his new regime by trading away the big-money contracts of Joe Johnson (possibly the worst contract in recent historyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;six years, $119 million) DQG0DUYLQ:LOOLDPV Ă&#x20AC;YH\HDUVPLOOLRQ -RVK Smith was also not re-signed, allowing him to take his WDOHQWVWRWKH'HWURLW3LVWRQV7KH+DZNVDWWHPSWHGWR XVHWKLVQHZRYHUĂ RZRIVDODU\FDSVSDFHWRREWDLQ HLWKHU&KULV3DXORU'ZLJKW+RZDUGZKRERWKGHFLGHG to decline their respective offers. This leaves the Hawks ZLWKDQRYHUĂ RZRIĂ&#x20AC;QDQFLDODVVHWVWRJRDORQJZLWKD decidedly depleted roster. At a quick glance, there seems to be very little for the citizens of Atlanta to be hopeful for as the new basketball season approaches. However, there are two areas of positivity that may bring a small measure of optimism for the upcoming year.

For even the most die-hard hoops fan, the last decade of $WODQWD+DZNVEDVNHWEDOOKDVEHHQGLIĂ&#x20AC;FXOWWRHQGXUH $OWKRXJKWKHWHDPKDVTXDOLĂ&#x20AC;HGIRUWKHSOD\RIIVLQVL[ straight seasons, they were very rarely considered a true threat or a realistic contender. The franchise has been marred by the ugly specter of mediocrity: just successful enough to continually make the playoffs, but never talented enough to compete with the better teams in the Eastern Conference. The team can attribute some of its stunted success to the last two head coaches, Mike Woodson and Larry Drew. Although both of these men had enough savvy and coaching skill to build a competent team, they lacked the ability to coax all of the talent out of their younger players. The most infuriating example of this is none other than ex-Hawk Josh Smith, a player with all the talent in the world and none of the discipline or self-control needed to become a star. As the NBA off-season has progressed, the Hawks continue to attempt metamorphosis. New General Manager Danny Ferry came to the team last season with the dream of a 56

1) THE END OF THE CYCLE

With the team undergoing a full-on rebuilding process, the cycle of mediocrity will most likely end this year. Granted, some fans might bemoan the lack of playoff basketball, but I think many fans will understand the necessity of this change. Instead of enduring another season of postseason inadequacy, the fans can look ahead to the 2014 NBA draft. If WKH+DZNVĂ&#x20AC;QLVKWKHVHDVRQWRZDUGWKHERWWRPRIWKH rankings, their chances of selecting a young franchise player in the draft increase dramatically. Nobody likes to see their team lose continually, but at least the basketball fans in Atlanta can look at the situation through rose-colored glasses.

2) A DIFFERENT BRAND OF BASKETBALL

With the departure of many familiar members of the Hawks roster, the team looks to showcase a faster, younger, more dynamic basketball identity. Obviously, with youth comes a great deal of inexperience, and Continued on pg. 57

inevitable growing pains will be felt over the course of the season. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s safe to say that many Hawks fans have grown tired of the consistently average teams of the past. Newly hired head coach Mike Budenholzer, a former assistant to the legendary Spurs coach Gregg 3RSRYLFKEULQJVDFRDFKLQJ pedigree that the Hawks have been desperately searching IRU7KLVWHDPZLOO almost certainly underperform compared to the Hawks teams of the last decade, but if they can provide an energetic and entertaining style of basketball, it just may be worth it.

Why don’t we have enough hipsters in this town? We need to get the government to create jobs for hipster-related initiatives.

I think people don’t judge people enough. I mean I see a person with a tattoo and I see a drug addict, unemployed, no gooder. I hold my purse a little more tightly.

Insignificant hang up? How my dog poops on the back deck.

Kitchen drawer hasn’t ever featured drawers, ever. What a crock.

Shoppers slumped over their buggy at Walmart.

And enough  live  music  already!  We’re   dangerously  close  to  letting  Griffin  become   somewhat  cultured.

I recently looked at statistics based on my own research (i.e. driving around and stuff) and the number of superheroes we have defending Griffin is a staggering ZERO. New York has like TWELVE. Get on it, Griffin PD!
