All the glory and fame for thoroughbreds come on the racetrack, so to most it's a bit of a mystery where the horses go after their racing days are over. Well, Betty McCue knows. Seven years ago, McCue and her sister, Evelyn Martin, opened EHM Stables in White Hall to take off-the-track thoroughbreds into their care and use them for personal showing. Today, though, EHM Stables has become a huge operation and grown much faster than McCue had expected, with numerous students, riding lessons offered and participation in local shows.

In her 22 years at Johnston Square Elementary School, Janice Shelford has spent more than $15,000 of her own money at the Dollar Store and Staples for school supplies for her students. But as of Thursday, she and dozens of other teachers will be heading to a new supply store whose impact on their classrooms will be priceless - literally. Johnston Square served as the launch site of the Wish-List Depot, a nonprofit organization that set up a free store where the school's 24 teachers, and eventually 54 others from three neighboring schools, can stock up on classroom supplies at no cost to the schools or the teachers.
