Asheville, Mars Hill and the Mountains: News Bits

08/15/07

For today, some local issues and flavor:

Storm Water Runoff in Asheville: From The Asheville Citizen Times:
In this article we see the issue of storm water runoff, and erosion from new subdivisions impacting their existing neighbors. Regulations in West NC have had to catch up with the pace of development in the mountains and steep slopes.

The current regulatory situation throughout the region is of course the result of, the basic political struggle over the role of government in the private sector. This dichotomy has been with us as Americans since the dawn of the nation, and, one would suspect is not likely to go away soon.

In our own County of Madison the same debate has been the framed in the same way, with the same opposing view points at work. What is the nature of responsible development, who properly decides this and how?

News From Mars Hill
Fall Colors Forecast: The News Record and Sentinel. School is back in session, Labor Day is near, and Autumn is sooner than we think. The report for fall colors seems to be favorable. By virtue of the fact that the last ice age deposited seeds from northern regions, Western North Carolina's fall colors equal those of New England and other vaunted foliage locales. A great place to spend some of your Autumn.

Alcohol Sales Coming to Mars Hill: One would suspect from this report, not anytime soon.

211 service: 211 service was inaugurated in our county recently. 211 is the portal that connects older Americans with essential services such as legal assistance, financial management, and so forth.
