A new website highlighting the stone structures of Clayton County rolled out last month thanks to years of work by members of the Clayton County Historic Preservation Commission. The eight-member group, with help from over a dozen volunteers from the area, drove every single road in the county to look for rock structures of any kind – be they culverts, bridges, outbuildings, houses, commercial buildings, structures in parks, or even ruins.

The Larsson family of Castle Pines North, Colo., has been searching internationally for a bone marrow match for their son, Lukas, for nearly two years. In that time, and with the help of dedicated family and friends, they’ve held dozens of marrow donor drives. “There are thousands of people worldwide who are waiting for their donors… Every time we have a drive, I think, ‘I hope we saved a life,’” mom Dena Larsson told The Press in November of 2013.
