The Slater-Marietta Lions Club was joined by more than a hundred leading citizens at Marietta First Baptist Church, Saturday afternoon, to honor a true gentleman and a living example of honesty, integrity. charity, modesty and unconditional love as described by his pastor, his barber, his friends and neighbors, his   children and  grandchildren.

Brock Adams will celebrate his 99th birthday this month. A farmer and textile worker for most of his life, Adams has arguably had a positive impact on more lives than any living resident of the Slater-Marietta community.

His County Council member, state Representative and Senator read proclamations enumerating his many accomplishments and contributions to his community, proclaiming a day in his honor.

His current pastor commended him for not being a “church hopper” and moving from church to church because of disagreements. Being disagreeable is not a  part of Brock Adams. He has been a member of the same church most of his life and at age 99 continues to serve as a deacon.

Deliverance from Addiction for young Men 17 to 25


Addiction is a serious problem in Upstate South Carolina and throughout our society. Many lives are destroyed by addiction to alcohol, illegal drugs, and prescription drugs, to name a few. Addiction takes its toll on families and taxpayers. It is virtually impossible for an addict to become free from addiction on his own.

A proven solution is available to all who seek it; however, most pursue popular, politically correct avenues of treatment  without lasting success.

There are many drug treatment programs. Some substitute legal substances for the illegal drugs. Some use various psychological techniques. Any one of these programs may provide temporary relief, or an illusion of relief, but the individual remains an addict with a craving for the drug.

Hollys-Parents_Page-16Dale and Shirley Roberts, grandparents of The Time Examiner columnists Heather and Raquelle Sheen, recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary. Dale is a native of Texas and Shirley hails from Oklahoma, but they were married in Lewiston, Idaho--the first wedding held in the very-new Orchards Baptist Church. In fact, the church 'building' was still simply a large tent.

With five children and their families scattered literally from coast-to-coast, a family celebration and reunion was held at a beautiful lodge in Mineola, Texas. This was the first time in years that the entire family had all been together. Everyone made it!
