    - In today's world of stress and confusion, a trip to Elizabethton on Saturday evening is a time capsule experience. Walking down Elk Avenue during a cruise-in allows all ages the opportunity to see America in better days, and car buffs can see those cars that most people only dreamed about in past years. At a Carter County Car Club Cruise-in, people actually talk to one another instead of text. A world class double-chocolate milk shake can still be purchased at the Bonnie Kate. For those of us who grew up here, East Tennessee becomes familiar again. Time slows down. That innocence that was characteristic of your youth will return as you walk down Elk Avenue as you gaze upon those special cars from the past. Even better, you can make this walk while holding the hand of that special person you have known ever since those happier times. A hand that perhaps came from across the parking lot at the Dairy Queen.

    - Five Southern women who, through hilarious adventures, prove that friendships last forever.

    By Jessie Jones, Nicholas Hope, Jamie Wooten

    Five unforgettable Southern women, whose friendships began many years ago on their college swim team, set aside a long weekend every August to recharge those relationships. Free from husbands, kids, and jobs, they meet at the same beach cottage on North Carolina’s Outer Banks to catch up, laugh and meddle in each other’s lives. These women increasingly rely on one another, through advice and raucous repartee, to get through the challenges (men, sex, marriage, parenting, divorce, aging) that life flings at them, including some hilarious and unexpected twists and turns.
