The pace of life is a bit slower at Herman's Fish Lake ‚ÄĒ quiet and relaxing, for sure. Occasionally, a rooster will crow, or ducks will quack. Muted conversations among the Saturday anglers drift across the pond.
Fishing space around the lake fills quickly, though ‚ÄĒ especially when one can fish the entire day for $8.
Louis Nunnery is somewhat of a Renaissance man with a thirst for knowledge. He savors life with an eyes-wide-open intensity.
Nunnery served in the Navy, which took him to many ports all over the world.
Nunnery is an artist ‚ÄĒ his paintings range from the surrealism of Dali to the Baroque style of the 17th century.
Don‚Äôt expect to see ‚ÄúDeadly Murder‚ÄĚ onstage at Hickory Community Theatre in the Firemen‚Äôs Kitchen. Instead, be prepared to listen to an eclectic mix of musicians. Be prepared to laugh and then laugh some more at improv. Be prepared to wonder at the world of illusion.
Darbey Younce is head over heels in love. That‚Äôs what she says, but then, so do most 16-year-olds. She‚Äôs been in love since May 2010 when she was in New York City with her family for their first visit to the Big Apple. You see, Younce is in love with photography. This is what happened when she picked up a camera one day in New York City.
The small sandwich shop on a busy corner in downtown Hickory opened inauspiciously two weeks ago. The lights went on and the door was unlocked, and Hatch Sandwich Bar opened without fanfare ... yet.
For owners Zach Harkins and Colin Makin, Hatch is their first venture as owners of a restaurant, but it‚Äôs a dream both have had for years.
Harkins attended UNC-Chapel Hill and Appalachian State University. He graduated from ASU in 2011 with a bachelor‚Äôs degree in communications.
Makin, originally from Boonsboro, Md., graduated from ASU in 2008 with degrees in philosophy and religion.
Our nation is often times known as a throwaway nation, but as the old saying goes, ‚ÄúOne man‚Äôs junk is another man‚Äôs treasure.‚ÄĚ
Resource Warehouse & Gallery isn‚Äôt your grandma‚Äôs traditional resale shop. Eddie Broussard explains why.
Broussard serves on the board of directors for ReSource and Safe Harbor Rescue Mission.
John Coffey and Jeff Hartman have a lot in common ‚ÄĒ both are extremely talented artists and are known and recognized ‚Äúfar and wide,‚ÄĚ as the saying goes. They‚Äôve known each other for 16 years but the ease of being around them together speaks volumes more than 16 years. It‚Äôs only natural for Coffey and Hartman to team up together in business. But to these artists, it‚Äôs more than business, and they don‚Äôt like to think of what they do as business....
They met at The Green Room Community Theatre‚Äôs 1996 production of Broadway‚Äôs longest running musical, ‚ÄúThe Fantasticks.‚ÄĚ
They fell in love when he was 16, and she was 14. They never married, and there was never anyone else. Now, 14 years later Derick Willis and Angela Seagle will marry Tuesday, Feb. 14, at 5:30 p.m. And, they expect quite a crowd ‚ÄĒ in fact, a ‚Äúcourthouse‚ÄĚ full of friends and family.
Willis and Seagle will make Valentine‚Äôs Day their wedding day by saying ‚ÄúI do‚ÄĚ at the Register of Deeds office in Catawba County.
Slip back in time ‚ÄĒ way back ‚ÄĒ like millions of years ago and walk among dinosaurs in a lush, primordial swamp setting of misty pools and hanging vines. Impossible to miss amid delicate ferns are six not-so-delicate roaring, robotic dinosaurs.
The immersive, prehistoric setting in Catawba Science Center‚Äôs Carpenter Hall is home for the dinosaurs through Sept. 2.
Phyllis Erikson‚Äôs passion for orchids began 30 years ago. As hobbyists, Erikson and her husband, Dale, filled their home with orchids. Soon, they ran out of room, moved the orchids to an outdoor shed and quickly filled it.
‚ÄúThat first winter, all our orchids froze,‚ÄĚ she said. ‚ÄúThat‚Äôs when we built the greenhouse.‚ÄĚ
Erikson turned her hobby into an avocation, a vocation and now a business. Ironwood Estate Orchids is located behind the Eriksons‚Äô home, nestled in the woods, with two greenhouses full of orchids in various stages of growth and bloom.
