For a small town in South Carolina the town of Ridge Spring has got a little something for everyone. The town is known as an antique mecca and now has a cult like following for something else…corn chowder. Chef Brandon Velie and his wife Jeanne opened up Juniper after falling in love with the town and with the building that Juniper now occupies.

Velie’s “cape corn chowder” attitude has catapulted Juniper to become one of the top places to eat in South Carolina. His farm to table approach in cooking has caught the attention of 2 governors of South Carolina and even Governor Chris Christy from New Jersey. And Velie’s love of cooking all started with the fond memory of his mother putting him to bed with a cookie every night.

REMEMBERING IN ABILENE WHEN….This is a brief test roll of super 8 film that my dad (Rev. T. Gerald Cates) shot before going to the Holy Land in 1969. This was taken in front of the church he pastored for many years. There’s footage of McMurry College, Highland Park Baptist Church, a Conoco Service Station, and a rare glimpse of the first Burger Chef Restaurant on South 14th Street in Abilene, Texas. (Note the cheap gasoline on the sign). Oh yea, yours truly is at the end of the roll trying to learn how to ride a Unicycle. Thanks dad for taking this!

Decided to take a leap of faith and acquire work in Sitka, Alaska for summer of 2015. Not only did I learn more in 5months than I did in 5yrs, but I met a handful of the kindest folks a person could ask for. Work was long, but rewarding. In closing – it was a trip I would never forget.
