  • App State Football and the Rest of the Sun Belt Conference Teams to Start Play on Labor Day Weekend


    August 5, 2020 Appalachian State University is anticipating starting its 2020 season on the first Saturday in September as the Sun Belt Conference announced on Tuesday that all conference teams would start play over Labor Day weekend. Sun Belt teams will play eight conference games and are allowed to play up to four non-conference games. Right now, Appalachian State is actively searching for two opponents to fill open spots on their schedule, including for the season-opener on September 5. The Mountaineers were originally scheduled to play FCS opponent Morgan State, however, the Mid-Eastern Atlantic Conference (MEAC) that Morgan State is a member of has decided to suspend all fall sports due to COVID-19. The other open spot on the schedule, September 19, came open when the Big 10 Conference (B1G) announced that their teams will play 10 conference games and no non-conference games this year, putting a cancelation on the Mountaineers’ trip to Madison to take on the University of Wisconsin. By Nathan Ham / Read more…

  • Ensemble Stage to present “Appalachian Jack” at Historic Banner Elk School Courtyard August 8 at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m.


    August 5, 2020  As part of their Summer Saturday Theatre for Kids Series, Ensemble Stage’s “Appalachian Jack” will be presented again this Saturday, Aug. 8, in the courtyard of the Historic Banner Elk School at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., with free admission. “Everybody has been having to make compromises, and everybody has been having to make sacrifices, and so this is what we can do to support the community and doing what we do on a regular basis and what we do best,” said Gary Smith, Ensemble Stage Artistic Director. “We want people to be able to come and enjoy the show and not have to worry about paying.” These two showtimes come after a successful performance of the show on July 25. This performance acts as a little taste of live theater in the High Country that is kid oriented and family friendly. “Theater is about connection and is a living, breathing organism, and you’ve got two main components to that living, breathing organism, and that’s the audience and that’s the actors on stage,” Smith said. “And when you don’t have that, something is lost when it comes to theater, and it basically becomes television, and I think people have had enough of watching TV.” By Harley Nefe / Read more…

  • Cherry Johnson Retires From Watauga County Arts Council After 28 Years


    August 5, 2020 Executive Director Cherry Johnson of the Watauga County Arts Council officially retired Aug. 1. Johnson has been with the organization since 1992, making her time there exactly 28 years, which is an important number for her. “I was born on the 28th, married on the 28th, and my last child was born on the 28th, so 28 seemed like a good number of years,” Johnson said. During the days leading up to Johnson’s final day, she was working on putting together a photo essay of different pictures from the past years. “Going through that, I was overwhelmed with how awesome it all was, and I was overwhelmed with, ‘Look at how much we did.’ It blew my mind,” Johnson said. “And several of the years, I would look and something would be dated that year and another thing would be dated that year and another thing. And I’m like, ‘How did we do all that?’ But we did!” Johnson said she enjoyed looking through the photos over the years and being taken back to those moments. “And seeing faces I haven’t seen in so many years, it was just fantastic to do that,” Johnson said. “That was the really great part of going back.” Continuing to reminisce, Johnson said she wants to make sure history and all the things the Watauga County Arts Council has done over the years does not get lost, because the staff has worked really hard. By Harley Nefe / Read more…



  • A Year in Review: The Appalachian Theatre’s Inaugural Season Draws Audiences From As Far Away As Finland


    August 3, 2020  At the July 22 board meeting of the Appalachian Theatre, trustees received a “state of the theatre” address from outgoing chair John Cooper and executive director Laura Kratt. It was an occasion to pause and reflect over the momentous events of the prior fiscal year, which began with an intensive swirl of activity to complete the eight-year, ten million dollar renovation and construction effort that restored the venerable landmark on King Street to its former glory, and ended in a complete shutdown due to the pandemic. The grand re-opening took place on October 14, 2019, with a standing-room-only concert, the first in a month-long series of events designed to welcome community stakeholders whose combined efforts saved the High County’s Art Deco architectural jewel. Almost 3,500 people joined in the festivities, the first of which was an opening performance with John McEuen of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band and the String Wizards with their “Will the Circle Be Unbroken” concert. The concert paid homage to many of the legendary performers that once graced the Appalachian stage in its early years ranging from Bill Monroe to Flatt & Scruggs to Doc Watson. Local talent, Liam Purcell of Cane Mill Road, joined in to make the evening a multi-generation affair. It was the perfect night to announce the dedication of the Doc Watson Stage for Americana Music at the App Theatre. / Read more…

  • COVID-19 Situation Update for Watauga July 30th

    July 30, 2020 Cases are continuing to increase for Watauga County. We are seeing our total case count increase steadily each week, and we would like to see that level off more than it has. The number of active cases (individuals in isolation) has also increased in recent weeks. The active case count data gives a picture of the active virus in our community. It is important to note that this only accounts for confirmed cases among people who have been tested. We are continuing to see community transmission occurring and when we can determine how exposure occurred, most cases were from people traveling, attending social gatherings or living or working in close proximity to others. This has remained the case through recent weeks. / Read more…

  • North Carolina High School Athletic Association Moves to Phase 2 For Fall Sports

    July 30, 2020 The North Carolina High School Athletics Association Board of Directors have voted to allow public schools to move to Phase 2 of its reopening plan amid the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

The NCHSAA has said it plans to allow teams to begin fall practice September 1. Individual school districts may determine whether or not its local schools will participate.

  • Number of COVID-19 Cases Continuing to Grow in Watauga County Among Young Population

    July 29, 2020 Concerns are growing throughout Watauga County after the latest test numbers reveal that active cases are climbing and teenagers, as well as people in their 20s and 30s, are making up the bulk of those positive tests, this according to Jennifer Greene, the Health Director at AppHealthCare. Greene spoke during Tuesday’s emergency Watauga County Board of Education meeting. “We have been watching the trend numbers, I think we did pretty well for a while, but over the last month, I have grown increasingly concerned because we have had an upward line. The majority of our cases prior to this week have been 18 to 24-year-olds with the next age groups being 25 to 49-year-olds,” said Greene. A total of 37 percent of the positive tests have been from people ages 18-24 and another 37 percent for people ages 25-49. As Appalachian State University continues to finalize its plans for reopening for the fall semester, a big jump in the younger population with roughly 20,000 students returning to Boone is going to lead to more community spread, according to Greene. By Nathan Ham / Read more…

  • Sherrie Norris Lovin’ Spoonful Cooking Column: Summertime Blues!


    July 29, 2020. Yum-yums, cobblers, muffins and jam — it’s blueberry season and happy I am. Not only are these summer delicacies delicious and in local abundance this year, but they are also among nature’s most nutritional gifts to us. Of course, they lose some of their “value” when tossed into a bowl of sugar and flour and made into those desserts that we all love this time of year. But, because there are so many ways to enjoy blueberries, we can’t possibly get bored with these delicious treats of the season. Nutrition experts tell us that the pigment that gives blueberries their deep unique blue color is an effective antioxidant and is a significant source of Vitamin C and dietary fiber. They have also been used to treat urinary infections, stones and diabetes. You can’t go wrong by eating them — just off the bushes or from the carton, so enjoy them while you can.

  • Todd Bush Traveled to the Top of Grandfather Mountain on Sunday Night For Comet Show


    July 28, 2020  Comet NEOWISE photos from Todd Bush on Sunday night continued to show a great view of the comet. Bush recommends a telescope or binoculars to see NEOWISE late at night. Bush also wanted to remind readers that thanks to his time-lapse camera settings, the comet will look a lot brighter in his photos than it will if you are looking through binoculars. The time-lapse photos also make the moonlight appear to brighten up the entire landscape to the point where it looks like the photos were taken around dusk when in reality, the photos were taken at almost midnight. Comet NEOWISE made its closest pass by Earth on July 23 when it was approximately 64 million miles from the planet.   By Nathan Ham / Read more…

  • From the Mayor’s Desk: Updates on Mandatory Face Coverings and Memorial Park Playground Completion


    July 27, 2020 I want to thank all of our citizens for adhering to the Governor’s mandate for wearing face coverings while in public areas. This being said, I have noticed some visitors to our community not wearing face coverings while in public areas and many of our merchants have been kind enough to offer face coverings. I have spoken with some of our visitors and they have stated how kind the merchants and citizens have been during their visits. We must keep in mind that we have visitors from all over the country and they may not be aware of the guidelines so it is detailed below for those people that might not be aware of his mandate. Governor Cooper’s mandate issued June 26 requiring protective mask be worn by employees and visitors in private and public buildings in the State of North Carolina and any area outdoors that six-foot social distancing can not be maintained.

  • Watauga County Schools Receiving Positive Feedback on Fall Semester Reopening Plan

    July 24, 2020 As the old saying goes, you’re not going to make everyone happy. With the first day of school now less than a month away, Watauga County Schools continue to prepare for Plan B of reopening school buildings at 50-percent capacity. They have received a good amount of positive feedback so far. “We’ve gotten a great deal of support from parents and community members as we’ve planned our reopening. It’s a community-wide effort to solved a hugely complicated issue that doesn’t have a best-size-fits-all answer,” said Garrett Price, the Director of Communications for Watauga County Schools. “We’ve gotten extremely useful feedback from parents and staff through a number of surveys regarding reopening plans that have been instrumental as we’ve worked out details specific to Watauga.” The “2×3 Flex Schedule” plan will have half the students at each school attend class on Monday and Tuesday and the other half attend on Thursday and Friday. Wednesday will be a remote learning day for all students, and when the students are not in the school building, they will be participating in remote learning the other two days of the week.
