It’s autumn! This time of year, especially, almost everyone has a scary story to tell. Some of my fondest memories as a child are of me and my friends sitting around a campfire after dark, trying to devise the spookiest tale to ensure no one would sleep that night.

I’m not sure what it is, but most people love a good scare. This, of course, is one big reason for the resurgence of horror and suspense movies. A live adventure is even better, and both Gold Hill and Mt. Pleasant offer ghost walks and tours.

Some of Cabarrus County’s ghosts are completely made up, like the “Mad Miner” at Reed Gold Mine. But then there are legends like “The Deacon” at Old Courthouse Theatre, who many people swear they have heard, felt and even seen.

In this issue we delve into what it’s like to be a medium that sees auras all around her. Mary Beth Wrenn is well-known in the Southeast, hosting readings at churches, gatherings and one-on-one. We also visit Gold Hill – famous for its hauntings – and Mt. Pleasant, which mixes a bit of history with its ghostly folklore. And be sure to check out the Events Calendar – it lists area activities happening around Halloween.

So, during this month of All Hallows Eve, have a little fun – on us. You never know who you might encounter after the sun goes down!
