  • High Country Home Sales Up 10 Percent Compared to Last Year


    July 15, 2019.

  • Movie Review: ‘Crawl’ No Reason to See This Movie

    crawl
    July 15, 2019 “Crawl” is a horror movie with a simple enough premise: Haley (Kaya Scodelario) has to rescue her father (Barry Pepper) from the basement of their Florida home during a hurricane. Obstacles include steadily rising flood waters, the impending threat of a surge of water if a levee breaks, the father’s injury from an alligator attack, and of course the alligators themselves. It’s mostly about the gators, with the hurricane not helping.
    This is definitely a “creature feature,” where the villain is an animal or group of animals that wants to chow down on our heroes. The king in the genre is “Jaws,” which like this movie primarily takes place in water. Humans may rule the land, but predatory animals rule the two-thirds of the planet that is covered in water, so who’s really in charge? By Bob Garver. / Read more…

  • Booneshine Opens New Restaurant, Bringing Craft Beer Lovers to ‘East Boone’


    July 10, 2019. Booneshine Brewing Company co-owner Tim Herdklotz has been hard at work to get “East Boone” on the map. The restaurant and taste room officially opened in its new location at 465 Industrial Park Drive just off of Highway 421 near the Greenway Trail and Ted Mackorell Soccer Complex. The brewery had moved to the facility a year ago, but the tasting room remained in its previous location at Basil’s until this past weekend when Booneshine celebrated with a soft opening in their new East Boone home. “The East Boone neighborhood connections have been awesome,” Herdklotz said on Tuesday.
