  • Avery County Got By With Minimal Impacts From Florence Storm

    September 18, 2018 Perhaps an accurate way to term Storm Florence’s impact in Avery County would be that it was minimal, but that it could have been a lot worse. Avery County Manager Phillip Barrier said Avery dodged a “major bullet for the most part” as Florence brought steady and consistent, but not heavy downpours to the county, causing relatively minor problems. According to reports from the National Weather Service, Avery County received between 4 ½ to 5 inches of rain from Saturday until Monday afternoon. Barrier heaped praise on the county’s emergency services outlets for their efforts during Hurricane Florence, saying it was a “total team in its most powerful sense.”  By Tim Gardner / Read more…



  • August Real Estate Sales in the High Country Highest in 13 Years


    September 18, 2018. The local housing market was sizzling in August, as Realtor® sales were the highest recorded in the High Country area in at least 13 years. Rising mortgage rates didn’t deter buyers. Neither did prices, with the average closing price the highest in eight years. There were 292 homes worth $85.8 million sold in August, as recorded by the High Country Multiple Listing Service (MLS). It tracks Realtor® sales in Alleghany, Ashe, Avery and Watauga counties. That was by far the most homes sold in the four-county area since at least 2005. The next highest monthly total was 244, recorded in October 2016. Since 2005, there have been 12 months when MLS sales surpassed 210 homes. Two of those occurred this year (August and July). Three others occurred in 2017 (August, September and October). / Read more…

  • Tropical Depression Florence Finally Leaves the High Country; Rainfall Totals Vary Across the Mountains


    September 17, 2018. Things could have certainly been much worse in the High Country. Some precipitation forecasts had parts of the mountain counties receiving upwards of 10-15 inches of rain. Thankfully for a lot of low-lying areas and people living near rivers and streams, rainfall measurements fell well short of that overall. However, flooding was still a problem, particularly in Ashe County where every low water bridge in the county was still underwater Monday morning, that according to Ashe County Emergency Management. The NCDOT will be in charge of reopening those bridges when possible. “We will inspect them for damage and reopen as soon as we can after the water recedes,” said Charles C. Reinhardt, the Division 11 Maintenance Engineer. Late Sunday night, Ashe County Emergency Management issued a statement about a potential dam breach at the Headwaters Dam in the Creston community.

  • Sherrie Norris Lovin’ Spoonful Cooking Column: Shuckin’ Corn While We Still Can


    September 12, 2018. We’ve just enjoyed some of the season’s sweetest corn, right out of the garden of family friends whose generosity shines through this time every year. As I mentioned before, we haven’t planted corn for a couple of years, mainly due to the way the raccoons and deer love to devour and destroy our crop. We’ve tried all the suggested tips to deter them, but none have worked for us. But, thanks to others, we’re not missing out on one of our favorite garden goodies. If the weather forecast is correct, I’m thinking this might be a good time to pick the remainder of your corn — and anything else you have left in your garden — before Hurricane Florence makes her appearance this week. It’s something we all need to take seriously, even here in the mountains, where we could receive damaging winds and rain. Corn is one of the most popular crops in America, and especially here in The High Country. It has played an important role in America’s culinary history and was a mainstay among native Americans. It is the source of many favorite dishes, including corn bread, chowder, fritters, pudding and so much more. It can be used fresh, dried or ground into meal and used in cereal and snack foods. Dried, hulled and treated, it becomes hominy, which can be cooked in stews or ground into a course meal known as grits. (I can’t bear hominy, but I love grits. How does that happen? ) Of course, one of the most popular varieties of corn is popcorn, dried and heated until it puffs into one of America’s favorite snack foods. Corn also provides fuel (ethanol) and important secondary products like corn oil, cornstarch, corn syrup — and a few other liquid products well known around these mountains. Let’s see what we can do with a little corn in the kitchen this week. By Sherrie Norris / Read more…
