Edwards is known in the community as a resilient, hard working, God-inspired woman.
Although she has spent a lifetime making a home and a way for herself and her family, she has gotten little broad acknowledgement for it.
She is likely not the type to seek recognition. Our hope is to learn from the inspiring example that she sets.
We hope that for the others that follow her as “People of Ashe” each Tuesday.
You can learn more about Edward’s story on Page 3A.
Check out Friday’s paper for another new series of articles called “Ashe Women in the Know.” This new inside feature will focus on women’s issues from medical concerns, to child rearing to occupations. It will appear weekly on Fridays.
Coming toward the end of the month is our new children’s special section.
It will include fun facts and puzzles and games targeted to appeal to K-6 grade readers. Key to its success will be specifically local information, what children are doing, school menus and calendars of events. The name of the children’s section is yet to be determined.
We are asking local school children in grades K-6 to submit names and subtitles along with artwork for the cover for the first year. Send them to Children’s Section, Jefferson Post, P.O. Box 808, West Jefferson, NC 28694. You may email them to Editor Lonnie Adamson, email@example.com.
The winner will receive a gift certificate from a local business.
