With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what 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.

As we near Valentine’s Day, we went to Local Pie in the Promenade in Bluffton and asked: “What makes your Valentine so special?” (Some folks we thought meant the day, and that’s fine too!)

Caroline Bowman, Savannah (and works at Local Pie): “Spending quality time with my boyfriend.”

Ellie Noakes, Bluffton: “A loving personality.”

Alice Singh, visiting from Winston-Salem, N.C.: “He puts up with all of my dogs. I do rescue work.”

Keith Johnson, visiting from Hendersonville, N.C.: “She is probably the most thoughtful person I have ever met.”

Riley Overcash, Bluffton: “I don’t have a Valentine, (but I enjoy) spending time with the people I love.”
