Pace receives diploma 68 years late by Samantha Hurst

O.P. Earle Elementary School in Landrum will host a PTO Open House tonight, Thursday, Aug. 18, from 5:30 - 6:30 p.m. It is also spirit night for the school at Bojangles.

In January 1943, Calvin Pace had all but completed his senior year at Saluda High School. But on Jan. 5 of that year his teenage dream of walking across a stage to receive his diploma was interrupted.

“I was one of the first of the 18-year-olds to be drafted from Saluda as far as I know,” Pace said. “I wanted to actually walk across the stage and do it like the rest, but I was in service and they wouldn’t let you go for nothing.” (Continued on page 3)

Here’s a list of upcoming meetings and events for area nonprofit community and governmental organizations:

Uncle Sam did send him around the world though, Pace said. He found himself in Fort Collins, Colo., in May of 1943. While he was training, his fellow classmates in Saluda were receiving diplomas and preparing to go to work or college. Pace said he did not see combat, but from the base he was stationed at in Burma, he could watch as fighter pilots took off on their way to drop bombs on the enemies. Pace remained in the Air Force until January 1945. When he returned home, he went to work for Duke Power for 32 years before retiring. Pace said it feels good to have official documentation of his graduation from high school. “I thought about it a lot, but that’s all it was – just thoughts.

Changes at Renewal Point Assemblies of God


Renewal Point Assemblies of God, formerly Christian Fellowship AG Church, in Columbus is moving forward with some big changes. Currently the Assemblies of God USA and Assemblies of God organizations around the world make up the world’s largest Pentecostal denomination, with some 62 million members and adherents. But numbers fail to tell the real story, and statistics can never meet human needs. People who need help in coming to know God, have problems in their home or have other troubles need someone who cares. And that’s the message of our

August fly fishing: Trout, smallies, carp Believe it or not, there are good opportunities to catch fish in the heat of August. And fish on the fly rod can be a bonus. I spent a little time talking with Heath Cartee of Curtis Wright Outfitters in Saluda. I felt like I was in an advanced level fly fishing course. Heath had and shared a wealth of information in a short amount of time. The only bad thing was my pen would not write fast enough. Heath told me if you are going trout fishing this time of year, go early. Sounds familiar, doesn’t it?
