In June, I received a request from Ann Morphew, from Crab Orchard, Tennessee. She is a member of a citizen’s group helping to revitalize the Crab Orchard community park. They had a goal of creating sign posts around the paved walkway that encircles the playground-concession-court area. Ann asked if she could use some text from my blog post on the beautiful Crab Orchard sandstone, a multi-colored stone rich in swirls. She also hoped to use some of the photos, which former Science News geology writer Sid Perkins had provided to me.
The sign is now up in the park with some words from my blog and Sid’s photographs. I am honored and pleased that she chose to use some of what I wrote. I look forward to seeing it some day.
