  • The following is from Wyatt Shely’s ‘Our Heritage’ column that appeared in Jan. 6, 1966 issue of The Anderson News.

    Even before the Village of Tyrone was incorporated (1879) the people of that community manifested a keen interest in education.

    Though the inhabitants of the valley, now Tyrone, were very few prior to 1850, one of our first schools was on the road leading to Subletts (Shryock’s) ferry.

    One of the Internet blogs I follow, “The Stretch Marks Blog,” is written by a woman in Texas, Melissa Lee.

    She’s beyond hilarious, loves big hair, “The Bachelor,” her crazy family, chocolate and Jesus.

    She writes mostly about superficial stuff, but not really. There’s a depth to her faith that shines through even her weekly “The Bachelor” recaps.

    2016 is here, and for most of us the new year comes with lots of plans and goals … and unfortunately, a few extra pounds.

    This year, instead of backing away from the table and ending up hungry (and not a very happy person to be around), I’ve decided to simply fill the table with healthier foods. I am not going to make the same mistake as last year by beginning a rigorous exercise routine with a hungry belly.

    Touted as the youngest ordained minister in history, 4-year-old Marjoe Gortner burst onto the Holy Ghost revival scene in the late 1940s.

    His father, a second-generation preacher, trained the boy, who had a talent for sweeping and pointed gestures, to proclaim the name of “Jay-zus” — and bilk money from the faithful who came to hear him preach.
