With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

You might find us anywhere around Bluffton with a camera and note pad, asking simple questions and looking for thoughtful answers. If we find you, we hope you will want to participate.

At The Grind coffee shop in Sheridan Park one recent morning, we asked: “Where and what are you planning for your summer vacation?”

Joanie Iaco, Bluffton: “I am going to Sterling Heights, outside of Detroit, Mich., where we are celebrating our 53rd consecutive family reunion.”

David Hussey, Bluffton: “I’m going to Hamburg, Germany, for the International Rotary Convention.” (David is the new president of the Rotary Club of Bluffton.)

Ciera Kiefer, Bluffton: “In July I’m going to Aruba for a week (her uncle is getting married), then I’m going to 4-H camp (real camping – no gadgets) and a cheerleading camp.”

Hannah Baird, Bluffton: “I’m going to see my boyfriend in Rock Hill, where I am working on my theatre master’s degree at Winthrop. I’m also going to a Rascal Flatts concert and the Lantern Festival in Savannah.”
