  • It wasn't important how any of the nine men on the sixth annual Hunters Helping Hunters event reached their degree of disability. The only thing that mattered was that the hunters enjoyed a weekend in the North Florida woods hunting deer and enjoying the great outdoors.

  • Margaret Bredsher can't explain why she started collecting angels. But they offer her a certain comfort level when she feels a little down from the pressures of life. Somehow, when she looks around her home and sees an angel in almost every corner, she said she feel's "God's protection."

    Bredsher doesn't know exactly how many angels she owns. The number, she guessed, tops 400. While she has some on display throughout her Key Street home year round during Christmas, all them are on display.

  • Back in 1959, most people delivered babies at home. The only time a woman went to the hospital was when complications were expected. Otherwise, they had children at home surrounded by family and friends and the trusted community midwife.

    Sometimes, laughed former midwife Eliza Smith as she sat in her Dodger Ball Park Road home recalling the nearly 30 years she delivered babies in Florida, Georgia and Alabama, there were so many people in the house she had to insist they go into the yard.

  • Jim will not be meeting the “Kid from Tifton” after all.

  • Billy and Beatrice Redding retired several years ago and have done everything together since that time, according to Beatrice.

    "He came in one night and was talking about the Cops On Patrol program. We talked about it and he thought it was a good idea. We were couch potatoes. We looked into the program and decided we would join. The rest is history," she said.
