This week we are especially proud of our award winning teachers. Their influence on our children’s lives are incalculable. Not sure what happened to the tradition, of giving teachers an apple, but now seems like the most fitting of times.

Local Business Briefs

The Wortham Center in Asheville

  • The Wortham Center for the Performing Arts is expanding capacity of the organization by enabling the use of all three of its venues at the same time. The Tina McGuire Theatre will receive leg extensions for risers, a lighting and sound system, and curtain tracks. Similarly, improvements to the Henry LaBrun Studio will include lighting and sound infrastructure as well as curtain tracks to enable dividing the space into two venues. The nighttime arts events resulting from this project promote and support Asheville’s creative spirit in addition to generating incremental room nights.
  • Community Center: Black Mountain Library offers books, Bonds, & Beyond.This branch, which turns 100 years old in 2022, has grown up and had time to establish itself as a pillar of Black Mountain. People can easily form connections with other patrons and librarians thanks to its convenient downtown location. It’s the kind of place where you know practically everyone by first names. The Friends of the Library organization is a significant supporter of the Black Mountain branch. They are, according to librarian Michelle Ruedin, the most devoted bunch of volunteers ever.
  • Asheville on Bikes’ new network of multi-use trails will add three new signature natural surface trail hubs and connectors in underutilized spaces throughout urban Asheville. The additional 4.9 miles of multi-use pathways leverage existing investments to Buncombe County’s greenway network. Overall, AVL Unpaved enhances Asheville’s outdoor recreation reputation while addressing competitive threats.
  • The Shiloh Community Association and Buncombe County collaborated to publish old maps of African American locations as part of the county’s celebration of Juneteenth. These maps show the locations of historical sites and markers that detail the colorful and varied history of African Americans in Buncombe County and Asheville. Free maps are available at the following locations:
