Charles Burden, Patty Stahl and Doug Pace, authors of the whimsical history of Cedar Mountain book called The Village and the Turn Pike, had two book signings this weekend. My husband and I had purchased the book at the Cedar Mountain Café and went to the signing at the Family Life Cen

ter at Rocky Hill Baptist to have our book signed. There was a great turnout and the authors answered many additional questions about the history of Cedar

Mountain. Several anecdotes were shared about Cedar Mountain that weren’t in the book. Some very funny ones. They said that there probably wasn’t a single creek in the area whose headwaters didn’t at one time have a Moonshine Still on it. Remnants can still be found.

The books were sold out the first week but Patty said more will be available soon.

AROUND THE HOUSE by Linda Packer Young

Most of you know what I’ve been up to recently. If not, I want you to know that Richard Packer Jr. of Franklin, NC and I were married 9-18-21. We met through online dating so if you are alone and would rather not be, give it a try. I have included a photo for you. My lovely granddaughter, Alayna Youngwolf, accompanied us down the aisle.


My BFF, Dnita Russell, flew in from Iowa to be my Matron of Honor and being an “old” hand at decorating cakes she finished decorating our wedding cake. While at the community center a couple of people from a movie crew came in and offered the center $20 to use the “facilities” for the next two hours. At first we refused saying we wouldn’t be there that long. They left and soon came back offering $100, but we still wouldn’t be there long enough to help them. They came back one more time and handed me a $50 bill and their calling card if we would just stay there a little longer. We accepted the money for the center and hung around longer than intended. They said they were scouting sites over on Reasonover Road for a scene in a movie. They wouldn’t say more. A couple of them did come in to use the center during that time.

Thanks for reading the Cedar Mountain News. If you have any news to share or announcements to make, please email to share it.
