PHOTOS: Moore-Turner Heritage Gardens

Posted By on Sun, Jun 30, 2013 at 3:11 PM

This week, Chey Scott explores the history of the Moore-Turner Heritage Gardens on the South Hill. Lost for decades, parts of the gardens were discovered after the ice storm in 1996. After a 10-year restoration, spearheaded by then Corbin Art Center Director Lynn Mandyke, the gardens were open to the public. Photos by Young Kwak.


A walkway that once gave residents of the South Hill access to downtown runs along the entrance of the garden.


The carriage road circles parts of the lower areas of the gardens.


Various flowers grow in the carriage road garden.  


A staircase leads to the pond at the top of the gardens.


The pond area at the top of the gardens gives an uninhibited view of downtown.


Lynn Mandyke speaks under the restored pergola in the pond area.


A detail of the pergola is photographed. 


The tea house also gives a view of the downtown area.


Trails lead visitors from one area of the gardens to another.


One area that couldn't be restored was the conservatory and greenhouses. Detailed plans could not be found for that area, so it remains an empty plot of land.


Irises are in bloom at the gardens.


The gardens provide many views of downtown.


The Mask of Pan fountain can be seen in the middle of the gardens.

Rainy Weather

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM

Jeers to all the people who whined and complained about the Jeff Dunham
OUTDOOR show being rainy. You paid for an OUTDOOR show, there's always a
chance for inclement weather, especially in this state. Those of us that
toughed it out had a wonderful time. Thank you Northern Quest for your
great entertainment.

RE: Places To Go

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM

Even if I blinked 182 times, I could not miss your gunmetal gray stang
trying to zip by un-noticed. It was so polished, I could see my camoflauged
vehicle reflecting in your mirror, while attempting to break the barriers
of the speed of sound. It is exhilarating to be sharing the road with you!
Love wins, punk

RE: Tips

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM

Since you are someone who assumes to know everything about server's income,
let me explain something to you about the service industry. Servers are
taxed 8.5% on their total sales. This means that they receive very small
paychecks because their total sales for a given period are taxed assuming
people tip, and the percentage is taken directly out of their paycheck. At
the end of the year I file my taxes and receive about $600. My husband does
not work for tips and receives roughly the same amount (we also claim 0 and
not 1). Hence, I am not receiving my taxed income back from the government
at the end of the year. It's a normal occurrence for people to tip poorly
or not at all. It happens and I accept it as such. Furthermore, I tip out
about $4,000 per year to the kitchen which I have to claim as income that I
really don't take home. In addition, we live in a society in which most
people use some form of plastic to pay for most of their purchases, so on
the rare occasion we receive a cash tip it hardly makes up the difference
for people who don't understand the concept of tipping. I am going
to 'assume' that you are one of those people who feel it unnecessary to tip
a server (providing that they gave you good service). I would like to
extend you an invitation to take a job as a server. You can see what it is
like to walk a mile in our shoes, and get an understanding of how difficult
it can be to deal with hungry, rude people. Perhaps then you will
understand how much we rely on tips, and truly appreciate the people who
tip us well. My advice to you is simple; before you go ranting about what
you think you know, make sure you are correct in all your assumptions!

Thank You!

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM

6/17 to the two girls who picked me up downtown. This city always surprises
me. It was about 7pm and I was extremely drunk and falling down, muddy and
bloody in no shape to be awake or walking, celebrating finishing a year of
school. Thank you so very much for giving me a ride all the way to my house
and for picking me up looking like a homeless man unable to even speak real
words. Sorry for being such a sh**show it will not happen again. If you are
reading this you really did me a solid and I will not forget it! P.S. my
wife was not very happy seeing two girls drop me off but she was extremely
greatful that her husband didn't go to jail. Thank you for taking time out
to help someone who made a very poor choice, it was a very kind thing to do.

True Story

Posted on Sat, Jun 29, 2013 at 8:24 AM

Two people meet in the most unlikeliest of places. Two people destined for
each other. Two lives that have been beat down, used, and abused throughout
their existence. They fall in love. Not just any love, a love they have
been wanting and waiting for their entire lives. The real feeling of love
that has never been felt by either one of them ever before. Knowing they
found each others soulmate to spend the rest of their lives with, they
screw it up and fail. Not because the love wasn't genuine, but because they
were afraid and waiting for the past to creep back in and just be thrown
away. Neither had that intention but their minds took over instead of their
hearts. Pushing away as hard as possible to cut off the pain before it
could happen, even though it was never going to. Both being too afraid and
scared to fully trust in their hearts and in each other. As they have gone
their seperate ways, trying to forget, trying to heal and trying to kill
the pain of their broken hearts that they both have created, the love hangs
in the balance. They cry themselves to sleep every night wondering why and
how they could be so stubborn not to make the love work and put all the
walls down. He waits loyally and faithfully with his guard down and no
walls up. He waits for the day when their hearts can love openly and freely
without fear of abandonment. He waits for the day he can take care of her
like she deserves for the rest of her life. He waits for his true love!

I think of you all of the time. When I look back on our time together I
remember how you made me feel. You were the only man who could calm me down
when I needed it most. You took the time to listen and understand me and
all of my ideas I wanted to share with you. My biggest regret is not being
able to fall into your arms when you asked me. I am sorry I needed to take
that time to work on me, I`m stronger now and I know I`m able to be the
women you need me to be and I would love it if you could relook at me
again. I heard you have moved on and if it doesn`t work out for you maybe
you would come back to me and love me the rest of our lives together. I'm
sorry I waited so long to come to you, but know I will always love you.
From the President of Ideas

June 20th, around 4:30. You wore a Chiawana shirt or sweatshirt and shorts.
I wore a WSU sweatshirt, and I think we glanced at each other for a moment.
