County or County Equivalent of the Week: Gaston County, NC

Gaston County is located in the South-Central Piedmont of North Carolina. As part of the Charlotte Region, Gaston County offers a slower paced life with all the excitement of the big city right next door.”

Korrektiv readers looking for a respite from the rat race might want to check out the U.S. National Whitewater Center and/or Belmont Abbey.

And for all I know there may be a reader out there (or perhaps even one of our staff writers) who would qualify for this position at Belmont Abbey College. They’re looking for “an individual with a broad, deep knowledge of the Catholic Intellectual Tradition who is able to teach classes on Catholic writers of the Southeast such as Flannery O’Connor and Walker Percy, on twentieth-century Catholic novelists such as Graham Greene and Evelyn Waugh, and on Tolkien, C. S. Lewis, and the Inklings.” Are you a Catholic intellectual with an advanced degree that’s going to waste? Would you like to have easy access to Gregorian chant and whitewater rafting? Get your application in!

    I should have stayed in school.

    I applied for the position you mention here, FYI. I actually was searching for references to the position when I found your site. I am still obsessing about it. It was cancelled, and I'm hoping it is reopened–indeed, I'm doing some summer reading with it in mind!

    Wow. Sorry to hear it was cancelled. We'll get the Korrektiv prayer-warrior team pulling for you right away.
