It was just eleven years ago when
it happened. Suddenly and without
warning it happened. And it chang
ed my life entirely.
The sun Was shining that warn
late February day. I was walking
across the Court House Square wat
ching some early robins oh the
grass, listening to their spring sonq.
All at once I heard a voice calling
me. Although I didn't know it then,
it was the voice of opportunity.
"Helen Cushman, will you do a
feature for me on the new State
Pprt at Wilmington? Sam Byrd told
me you could write."
Sam Byrd was an old and valued
friend of mine, and the voice was
that 'of the tale Bob Grady who
gave ;me the chance of a lifetime.
He had faith in my talent, and enou
gh understanding of my weakness
to-make me work. From that mom
ent on, he never hesitated to give
Rle some new' challenge every time
I sat down at my desk in the Dup
lin Tfihes.' .

endly place to me, I met wonderful
people, and I had experiences which
gals in the newspaper business are
seldom enough fortunate to have.
I've been grateful to Kenansville
Snd to Bob Grady ever since.
If you've been away from a place
for ten years as I have from Ken
ansville, and then come home again,
you must notice many changes.
Perhaps (hey have been so gradual
that those lucky people who live
here all the time don't realize how
the town has grown.
Yet enough things and enough
people have ehanged. As I walked
across the Court House Square to
the Duplin Times Office, I met
many new faces. But there were
familiar Ones, too. And everywhere
was the same warmth, the same
interest that gave Kenansville a
special place in my heart.
I opened the door of the office,
hesitantly. That marvellous smell of
printers ink would have made me
know that I was home again. But
there were Amos Quinn and Mose
Cooper, not changed a whit from
the old days. And upstairs, well,

grand job since Boh went on to a
