Sherry Burton, Founder & Editor
Born and raised in the foothills of North Carolina's Appalachia mountains, Sherry found her way to Calhoun County in 2007 after years of nomadic adventures!
She graduated from high school in 1980, and enlisted into the United States Air Force where she served eight years active duty at Edwards AFB, CA; first as a law enforcement officer and then in computer operations.
Leaving active duty in 1988 was a difficult decision and one year later Sherry enlisted into the NC Air National Guard as a combat communications specialist. Her 17 years in the NCANG found her traveling to the Middle East in support of combat operations.
Retiring in 2007 from her military service Sherry continued her civilian career in production planning and purchasing at several Midlands manufacturing companies.
In June 2016, she gave it all up to pursue greater adventures on the farm in Calhoun County that she shares with her husband and to enjoy her seven children and ten grandchildren.
And now, Sherry is pursuing her life-long dream to be a writer/journalist by creating and operating this on-line news and information "paper" to support the community she has grown to love.
"Life is either a great adventure or nothing."
