So I had to look that up. Fun that it was originally called "Crockers Crossroads."

I also learned that the local news webpage/paper is the "Smokey Barn News."

Hi Spike, sorry I missed your comment. Pam (my wife) grew up on a tobacco farm about 5 miles N of Orlinda - on the SW corner of Bethany Church Rd and SR 49. I've never heard that it was originally called Crockers Crossroads. I'll have to ask my mother-in-law about that (she's 91 and still lives on the farm, but all the farm land is leased out). Never saw a printed copy of the Smokey Barn News either. Probably there never was a printed version and it's only ever been an online site since it was started in 2010.
