Bluefield Natural Products—time-tested ways for today

The Story of Your Food
by Nina Linton

Stroll into Bluefield Natural Products (BNP) and you might feel like you’ve stepped back to a bygone era.

Behind the porch-like screen door, blithesome butchers in tidy red aprons-wielding burnished blades and 45 years of combined experience—welcome customers with wide grins, offering supper suggestions as they s

Garnet Schellen and his herd of Ayrshires

The Story of Your Food

It’s 5:15 am. Garnet Schellen’s hand fumbles into the murky darkness, silencing the alarm clock’s shrills with a slap. He slides out of bed and into his work clothes—a well-worn set of navy coveralls—before easing out the back door and down a path carved by decades of hurried footsteps.

All’s quiet except for a faint wind w

Donna Clark is on call 24/7. Some nights she gets no sleep, working around the clock helping mothers deliver healthy little ones. She lingers by their sides for as long as it takes—some minutes, others hours—ready to jump in and help during the most difficult and intense births.

With two grown children of her own, Clark’s mothering instinct remains strong. She’s d

It’s been a while but Lester Stubbert still remembers the feeling. Without an instrument himself, the musically-inclined child fashioned an impromptu guitar from one of his father’s lobster traps and a Popsicle stick; his aspiring three-year-old fingers plucking the interlaced strings, a resonant warble eme

Pygmalion

Reviving old classics is nothing new for The Montgomery Theatre but in their recent offering, Pygmalion, the company sets the bar high with outstanding cast performances in a comical collision of socioeconomic classes.

For Heber Ross there is not a more comfortable spot than the rigid, conformed metal seat of his restored 1952 tractor.
