    The Pageland Garden Club has selected the lawn of Mr. and Mrs. Samuel L. Jackson, 207 West Turner St. as July’s Yard of the Month.  After living in New York, the Jackson’s chose to retire in their hometown of Pageland.

    This Friday and Saturday the town of Pageland will celebrate its most famous piece of produce. Vendors will no doubt line the streets with watermelons in a variety of shapes and sizes.

  • We all know them – the Christmas crafters. Those crafty individuals who arrive at holiday parties and family get-togethers with cute, heartfelt homemade gifts and baked goods. The kind of gifts which make our hastily wrapped Hickory Farms fare look like we didn’t even try.

    For years, we’ve just had to grin and accept it. We’re never going to be crafty, and that’s that.

    Or at least that was how it was until 2010. Enter Pinterest.
