Snowbound in Ohio

Carolyn Cary's picture

I have lived in Georgia since 1959, first in Forest Park for six years and for 46 years in Fayetteville. The 27 years before that were spent in Akron, Ohio, about 50 miles due south of Cleveland.

From November through March, snow was always a factor of daily life in those months. Read More»

Michael Burnett's picture

Engaging a community in a visioning process is one of the guiding principles of master planning. As a very active participant and business leader in the community, Piedmont Fayette Hospital looks forward to being a part of the Fayette Visioning Initiative that will serve to help us further define our future.

Why is participation in this process important to Piedmont Fayette? Twenty-five years ago a group of Fayette County citizens created the Fayette ‘93 visioning plan, which provided a roadmap for Fayette County’s high quality of life, work and play community that many of us enjoy today. Read More»

Words speak volumes

Rarely do we envision ourselves exactly how others perceive or interpret us. This realization holds true for the use of language when compared to our exhibited daily actions.

People are defined by the accumulative history of their deeds, rather than by mere words. But language can be both reflective of behavior and have an influence on these behaviors as we move forward. Our language shapes the way we view our surroundings, and is a good everyday step toward a more inclusive community. Read More»

I remember the year of 2 Thanksgivings

Carolyn Cary's picture

In the summer of 1939 I had whooping cough so bad my left lung collapsed.

It was decided to put me in the Edwin Shaw Sanitarium in my hometown of Akron, Ohio. No comments please, about it being called a sanitarium.

I was to have complete bed rest for six months and not get home until Christmas Day.

We all learned about the First Thanksgiving in school, so I shall not bore you.

Interestingly, the dates were shuffled around by various United States presidents until Abraham Lincoln set a date in stone in 1863. Read More»
