To our wonderful community

The family of Christopher Blalock wants to express their sincere appreciation to all of the Dawson County Sheriff's Office, Kevin Tanner, Chaplain Mike Owens, Ted Bearden and son and Gordon Pirkle for their tremendous help and support to us during the loss of our son. You could not ask for a better community than we have.

It really means a lot to know we have such a caring community and our sincere thanks to all the citizens of our great community. A community we are very proud to call home.

Skeeter finds out he has a lot to learn

Skeeter Skates, owner of Skeeter's Tree Stump Removal and Plow Repair in Metropolitan Pooler, called me this week. That was an historic occasion. Maybe not man-landing on-the-moon historic, but pretty close to it. Skeeter rarely ever calls. I think it is because he thinks he knows everything. Being an industry leader in the tree stump removal and plow repair game can do that to a person.

"Hoss," Skeeter said with no preamble, "my associates around the state and I have formed an industry group, The Tree Stump Removal and Plow Repair Association of Georgia and, naturally, they appointed me ...

Heart and soul of Dawsonville

Last Wednesday morning I was eating breakfast with a friend at the Dawsonville Pool Room as I try to do several times a month. Barbara was there with her new knees looking good, as was GP and Gordon, who was out unusually early and in a suit.

I asked Gordon who's funeral he was attending as that was the only reason he was ever in a suit and since he was upright I didn't think it was for his, at least not today. Little did we know that in less than four hours, another loss would occur in ...

Home of the Bully Burger under lockdown

Over the years I've heard many people say: "Gordon Pirkle is rich, he makes all kind of money."

Which might have been true if he had not given so much over the years.

Pirkle a family man

First of all I have never written an editorial on anything in my life, I do admire the folks that do and have the guts to write and publish what they believe in.

I am the daughter-in-law of Gordon and Idilene Pirkle. I am married to their eldest son, Lawton.

Forever grateful

Gordon's heart is so big. Gordon helped me claim and hold onto my family name! I hope he doesn't mind me telling this now.

Gordon has a unique love and understanding of family and the family name. Some people think a person's name is just what they are given at birth, but it's so much more. I was raised in a single parent household by my mom Myrna West, with help from her mom Ola West and her brother Lyndon West.

What I share with my mama

I recently read an article in a magazine that talked about how the physical features you share with your mother reveal similar personality traits. Similar eyes meant you both were optimistic. Lips meant you both were openhearted; noses, equally trusting. The article offered some keen insights that I am sure for many, rang very true.
