Culver resident credits granddaughter with saving life

October 19, 2011

CULVER — Mandy Morrison, 13, doesn’t usually spend the night at her grandma’s house on a school night. But last Monday, she did—and ended up saving her life.
Eileen Wright, a diabetic, woke up in the middle of the night coated with sweat. Her alarm bracelet was going off, signaling that her blood sugar might be dangerously low.

Acclaimed photographer has Bourbon roots

October 18, 2011

BOURBON — Before he became a respected photojournalist at the Gloucester-Matthews Gazette-Journal in Virginia, Walter Becknell was just like any other teenage boy growing up in Bourbon. He took the first step toward what would become a life-defining hobby one day in 1938 when his father told the family about a hawk’s nest he had found in a field. Becknell’s interest in birds began that day, and he started his nature photography a short time later—taking his first photo with a Brownie box camera in 1939. He was 14 years old.

Life on the sea leads to music; hometown

October 13, 2011

The PHS grad and Marshall County native and singer/songwriter has just released his second album of songs “Daydreaming Days Away” but his musical pursuits are just part of an amazingly eventful young life.
