Happy rainy Monday morning. There are several government meetings this week across Macon, Swain, and Jackson Counties, and you can count on us to be watching them and reporting back to you with any big developments and breaking news. We are seeing a ton of growth across WNC right now in terms of broadband expansion, business innovation, and tourism. It is an incredibly exciting time for North Carolina and the western portion of the state. 


We are also continuing to watch several significant pieces of legislation working their way through the General Assembly — many of which are being led by our local representatives, Senator Kevin Corbin and House Rep. Karl Gillespie — as well as Rep. Mike Clampitt. As these move through the General Assembly stay tuned for if/how they will impact the folks in WNC. 


Thank you all for allowing me to have a weekend to refresh and regroup and prepare to keep you all informed and connected! As always, I appreciate all of your love, support, and encouragement. Thank you for being the reason why The Southern Scoop News is YOUR source for community news!
