From Maiden with love

May 9, 2011

Ethan Allen employees Matt Jenkins and Brock Arrowood arrived in Tuscaloosa, Ala., last week with a trailer packed with supplies bought by their fellow employees at the Maiden furniture plant.

"It looked like a bomb had gone off. There was nothing but rubble," Jenkins said. "There were entire areas that were just gone. There was nothing there, but trash, and then right across the road, everything was still intact."

He said the unidentified man tried to dive down to avoid the boat's prop, but his legs got tangled in the motor's part.

History won't repeat itself

May 4, 2011

Stacks of books detailing the Holocaust not only opened the minds of readers and teachers, but started an in-depth discussion on the root issue of one of history's most devastating accounts of death — hatred.

Catawba Valley Community College received about 150 classroom sets covering the Holocaust through a grant from the N.C. Council on the Holocaust. CVCC is the only community college in North Carolina to have the instructional collection.
