The Rutherford County Attraction Continues... Another New Business Creating More Jobs!
The discovery that Rutherford County is “the place to be” continues. This past Tuesday witnessed yet another company that has come to our county. Save-A-Lot, a discount supermarket chain with approximately 1,250 stores in the United States, held its grand opening. The new store is located in the White Oaks Plaza in Spindale. The store occupies over 13,000 square feet. Most important, it creates 20 new jobs! Supervisor Mark Sykes referring to the new store proudly states: “I think it’s wonderful to be here.

“I just decided to quit,” she said.  “I quit cold turkey—no patch, no pills, no gum.  I just quit.  And it was hard,” she said, “I mean I’ve been smoking for seven years.  It’s what I do.

On occasion he would give us some leaves to take home and twist for a good homemade chew. His recipe was either to cut up a fresh apple and let it marinade the leaves for a few days or to ease that twist of tobacco down into a jar of honey or molasses. This was my favorite.
