TOTAL ECLIPSE AUGUST 21ST
It was reported by a well-known local DJ that Transylvania County is expecting up to 100,000 visitors to our county to view the Total Eclipse on August 21st. I personally know of at least two coming here from Ohio because of it! They are arriving August 19th, which is the last day of this year's Mountain Gourd Gathering. Luckily the teachers who are staying in their cabin for the gourd event will be able to pack up the morning of the 19th so the cabin will be ready that afternoon for the out-of-towners. If anyone here has a room to rent please let me (Christine) know! Contact me by email at email@example.com or by phone at (828)885-2103 please. Thank you! I am personally looking for places the third week in August each year, and this year's dates are August 17, 18 & 19th.

First we extend our sympathy to the families of the two young high-schoolers killed in the auto accident this week in Transylvania County - so sad. Sympathy also goes to Faith Bishop (Lenoir's wife) who lost her mom after a long health battle.

AROUND THE HOUSE
SPOOK IS BACK
1st my bathroom scales disappeared. I’ve searched high and low. Then I was awakened from a nap by the doorbell which rang twice - nobody there. Realizing the doorbell had sounded different I rang it myself. The ring was not the same as I heard. So I rang the doorbell alert I have at my bedside (for when I had my surgery) and it was the same. So my alarm bell at my bedside had been pushed TWICE. This happened once when Kallie walked on it, but TWICE? - Plus NO cat now.
Then my TV remote started fast forwarding a recorded movie all by itself. I would back it up and it would do it again. It kept making this "thunking" sound they do when you are pushing the wrong buttons. I wasn't pushing any buttons. I deleted the “offending” program and the shenanigan’s stopped. I guess Spook didn’t like that movie. NOTE: “Spook” is what I blame when nothing else explains the situation.
What’s happening with you or in the community? We’d love to hear what’s going on, if you would like to share.
Please email your news to firstname.lastname@example.org by 6 pm on Mondays.
