eBOOK 

 

THE NUMBERS is expected to be available via other booksellers in the future.

The OVERVIEW below will provide a sample of the story line.

Overview

This book is about a young man named John who seems to always be down on his luck struggling to make ends meet, a young woman named Beth who wants to be a model, and her husband, Tom, who seems overqualified for any job he applies for.

 

But on a rainy day in Los Angeles, John stops to help a young lady named Beth who was not familiar with the traffic woes in Los Angeles to reach her destination. Beth's husband, Tom, was picking up a few things at the grocery store near their apartment. While he was paying for his groceries, he heard a reporter on the television at the market reporting on the lottery drawing that evening. The cashier asked him if he wanted to try his luck. Tom thought about it and then replied, "Yes, I think I'll give it a try." Tom walked out of the store feeling lucky and decided to have a beer at Hurley's Bar and Grille. The television there was on full blast, and the reporter was calling out the numbers.

Tom looked at his numbers in disbelief and yelled out, "I think I have the winning numbers!" Incredibly happy that he had somehow just won millions of dollars, he began running down the sidewalk and sprinted across the street to his old black classic Pontiac Trans Am. He looked again at his lottery ticket and called his wife. He listened to the phone as it began to ring. "Come on, Beth, answer your phone right now, honey." Tom listened to her phone message, and at the sound of the beep, he spoke. "Beth, call me immediately when you hear this message!" Tom put his cell phone down and started up his Trans Am.

A couple of minutes later, as Tom drove through the middle of the intersection with a green light, suddenly without any warning, there was a flash of light as his Trans Am was broadsided by a speeding car running through a red light at an incredibly high rate of speed, colliding with the Trans Am, trapping Tom inside and unconscious.

OBITUARY for bituary for Matthew Christopher "Matt" Littlefield
Matthew Christopher Littlefield

On May 16th, 1985, Matt came into the world like a lion: a leader from the start. He would need that boldness, because as he would often reflect, he was born right into a “sea of estrogen.” Raised in a home with two hovering older sisters, a doting mother and grandmother, it was Matt and Dad against the tide.
There is a clear throughline to Matt’s life – his RELATIONSHIPS. The bonds he forged with his smothering older sisters stand rock solid to this day. He was also, like a lion, SO PROUD. Proud to be his parents’ son. His home was the high school hangout because Matt liked being with his family. He loved his mother with unwavering allegiance, a bond that was so honest, SO loving. Matt’s father was his hero. Like Mickey, Matt sparkled. Like Mickey, Matt built friendships DEEP and WIDE. Mickey was a groomsman 11 times. For Matt, that number is 19.
What for some is a secondary part of life was PRIMARY for Matt – FRIENDSHIP. He built bonds as a Ghostbusters loving, mountain-climbing little boy. He built friendships as a two-a-day receiver on Sandy Creek’s standout football team. He built friendships at the University of Georgia – where he received a degree and dozens more forever friends. Matt also built bonds at the Georgia State Capitol where he proudly served as a registered lobbyist. It was there that his knack for truly seeing and hearing people collided with his work, as he proudly went on to help lead an Ag Commissioner and two US Senate campaigns.
Matt’s greatest accomplishment will forever be his relationships. His soul was a deep well of humor and empathy. Matt was there on the hard days; Matt was there on the fun days. He connected with SO many SO deeply. And most recently he built bonds with his beloved five-year-old niece and one-year-old nephew. He is known as Uncle Matt to dozens, because to Matt, friends and family were interchangeable.
Matt is now in the heavenly company of his hero, who left this earth seven years ago. Matt is, at last, reunited with Mickey.
And as his immeasurably proud mother, Margaret, sisters Susan-Elizabeth and Victoria and niece Mickey-Reese will forever continue to dote, his beloved brother-in-law Philip and nephew Parker (who also happens to have a lion’s heart) will now navigate that estrogen sea. Matt also leaves his treasured Uncle Don and Aunt Judy and cousins Beth, Jenny and Donnie, Madi and their families, who he held so dear.
As his family, we KNOW this grief is shared by SO SO many. As one lifelong pal of Matt reminded us, Matt Littlefield was THE best friend.

The First CPHS

In 1927, before CPHS was on Main Street, it was on the east side between Hawthorne and Temple.  The building was later used as S.R. Young Elementary School.

ANNABELLE -- GRAND LADY OF COLLEGE PARK

The Class of 1964 recently held their 50-year reunion.  Paul Daniels provided a write up giving some history of the Annabelle house: 

At our reunion, lots of "stories" were shared including those about the CPHS campus and what will become of it, along with stories about other "noteworthy" structures in College Park, some no longer there (The Tennessee Corp office on HWY 29 adjacent to Newton Estates) as well as the grand Victorian brick home that still sits on property adjoining College Park High School.  Upon returning home to Hilton Head Island, I came across a handout for "Annabelle", also known as "Palmour House," which I received at an open house some years ago after the property had been restored by the Stokes & Murphy Law Firm.

Brian Marsh sent us the handout, which I found fantastically interesting.  If you'd like to see it, click here.
