  • Fall Leaf Color Update: Low Temperatures are Perfect for Bright Fall Colors; Predictions of Vibrant Color in 2-3 Weeks


    September 24, 2020  Appalachian State University Biology professor Howard Neufeld, who is better known as the “Fall Color Guy” on Facebook and Sugar Mountain Village Tourism have provided updates to the fall peak leaf color forecasts and guides for this season.

Neufeld currently rated the forests as 99% green, even at high elevations like the summit of Grandfather Mountain. However, he said this period of cool, sunny weather is going to get the color changes going, so each week now we should see more and more leaves start to color up on the hillsides.

  • Boone Police Department is Asking for Help with Drive Through Traffic Jams on Blowing Rock Rd.


    September 23, 2020  The Boone Police Department is asking for the public’s help in eliminating the traffic congestion on Blowing Rock Road. Several popular eating and coffee establishments have a tendency to attract several patrons. Therefore, this causes traffic to come to a stand-still on Blowing Rock Road as customers are attempting to enter the parking area and/or the drive through locations. This can cause traffic crashes and lead to road rage incidents. If you see that traffic is beginning to back up into the roadway, consider your fellow traveler and either continue on to another location or park elsewhere and walk to the establishment of your choice. / Read more…



  • Civitas Poll: Trump and Biden in Dead Heat; Gov. Cooper’s Approval Continues to Decline

    September 23, 2020 President Donald Trump (R) and former vice president Joe Biden (D) are in a dead heat, according to the most recent Civitas Poll of likely North Carolina voters. When asked, “If the presidential election were held today, which of the following candidates would you vote for,” 45% of respondents said they intend to vote for President Trump, while 44% said Biden. Jo Jorgensen, candidate for the Libertarian Party, garnered 2% support among respondents. Eight percent remain undecided.This survey was conducted on September 17-20, during which the news of the late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsberg’s passing was announced. “The presidential race continues, and will continue, to be a nail-biter until November 3,” said Civitas Institute President Donald Bryson. “There is a reason the Trump campaign has camped out in the Old North State in the last month, and now the Biden campaign is making an appearance – we are the state to watch for the White House.” / Read more…



  • Sherrie Norris Lovin’ Spoonful Cooking Column: Homegating – Covid’s Newest Phrase


    September 23, 2020. Well, just when you think you’ve heard it all, a new phrase has arisen from the 50-yard line. It seems that “homegating” is the new tailgating, since most football stadiums are not allowing the ever-popular gatherings before the big game that countless fans have come to love. Well, let’s back it up and put it all in perspective. The fans aren’t even allowed at the games, so no need to set up the party in the parking lot, right? But, its seems that “homegating” is the next best thing, and something you can easily do in the comfort of your own backyard or patio — while you’re waiting for the game to appear on the big screen in your living room. I’m not even a huge football fan, but it feels strange for me to even be suggesting same. Anyway, a semblance of football season like we’ve never known it before has arrived and the parties can begin. Just as before, it’s personal preference whether to plan for something as simple as sandwiches and chips, or something as elaborate and time-consuming as you want it to be. Simple is good and you really don’t have to worry about competition this time around, so whatever works for you is all that matters. You can still fire up the grills for the chops, steaks, ribs, wings, burgers and dogs. By Sherrie Norris / Read more…

  • Hunger and Health Coalition Announces Two New Fundraiser Events in October


    September 22, 2020  As the air crisps and Boone moves into autumn, the Hunger and Health Coalition is usually gearing up for our largest fundraisers of the year. In October, our Masquerade Ball and booth at the Valle Country Fair raise more than $60,000, funding we use to keep our shelves stocked with food all through the colder seasons. Our client visits increase as seasonal summer employment dips, and we rely on this money to make sure we have enough for everyone who will come to us for help. COVID-19 promises to make this winter our busiest yet. Since March, we have taken on more than 600 new clients and that number continues to grow. Simultaneously, we are making up for a shortfall of more than $100,000 from cancelled fundraisers over the last few months. We have not stopped providing for our community through the pandemic, but need the support of the community more than ever at this time. These shifts have forced us to be more creative than ever this year.

  • Sherrie Norris Lovin’ Spoonful Cooking Column: September is National Chicken Month


    September 16, 2020. September is National Chicken Month.
