  • Sherrie Norris Lovin’ Spoonful Cooking Column: Super Bowl Sunday Is Just Hours Away, App State Alum Eric Church Singing National Anthem


    February 3, 2021. Like most other events in the last year, Super Bowl Sunday will appear much differently than it has in the past. Attendance at the main event will be at a historical low, while parties in pubs, clubs and homes will be adjusted to fit into the “guidelines.” Well, maybe. Even some of the big-time advertisers with the commercials-to-remember are opting out of the game this year. I just read that Budweiser, Pepsi, Coca-Cola and Ford have decided not to air ads for various reasons. I guess we will just have to wait and see. One thing that will attract attention here in the High Country – and will be worth tuning in to, for the beginning, anyway, will be the appearance of Country Music star, Eric Church. As part of a duet with Grammy-nominated artists Jazmine Sullivan, Church will sing the national anthem prior to kick-off in this year’s matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. An App State alumnus, Church hails from nearby Granite Falls, and has made his way up the charts as a seven-time ACM Award winner, four-time CMA Award winner and 10-time Grammy nominee. Church’s hit singles include “Some of It,” “Give Me Back My Hometown,” “Springsteen,” and “Drink in My Hand.” So, there’s that for a little High Country connection. We’ll claim him, right? In the meantime, if you’re hosting your own little party inside your home, hopefully a few of our ideas will help make it another night to remember. By Sherrie Norris / Read more…

  • Today is Groundhog Day; Grandfather Mountain’s Animals Have Their Own Thoughts on the Holiday


    February 2, 2021 This morning around 7:25 a.m. Punxsutawney Phil was awakened from his burrow and saw his shadow, which calls for six more weeks of winter weather. While today is a day that puts the spotlight on groundhogs, Grandfather Mountain’s animals have their own thoughts on the holiday and are thoroughly enjoying the snow, according to a recent press release. Groundhog shmoundhog. When it comes to six more weeks of winter, Uno the river otter says, “Bring it!” Uno is one of three North American river otter rescues who reside on Grandfather Mountain. Otters are specially adapted for dealing with cold, icy winters, as they have a very thick fur coat and layer of fat to help keep them warm. For swimming in such conditions, their skin produces oils that help to waterproof their fur, and their fur traps in air for extra insulation — sort of like a natural scuba suit. Due to these special adaptations, Uno never has to worry about getting cold and can play in the snow and swim in his icy pond to his little heart’s content — regardless of the Punxsutawney Phil’s prediction.
