Yesterday, I flew up to Newark, NJ with Nick, my sister and her husband (both of whom work for The Southern Scoop) and my momma. 

My mom dedicated her whole life to raising me and my sisters. As a teen mom, she never got to have the “young adult” experiences of traveling and exploring the world. She gave it up for us. She still gives up so much to be the best Nana in the business. So when the Friends Experience opened in NYC, since it’s her all-time favorite show, I knew we had to take her. Only her second time ever on a plane and the first time in a big city, we are making sure she gets all those fun life experiences she put on hold for us.

We are just here for the weekend and took direct flights from Asheville to Newark and then the train into New York City. I can't wait to tell you guys all about it. But don't worry, the work continues! 

This morning the North Carolina Superintendent of Public Instruction Cathrine Truitt is touring Nantahala School and later today Trimont Christian Academy is finishing up their Feed the Need fundraiser and The Southern Scoop will be covering it all. We also have an exciting broadband update coming after Macon County Commissioners voted to approve the contract with Balsam West for fiber expansion into Macon County, so stay tuned! 

Weekend Plans in Macon, Jackson, and Swain Counties!


The Friday edition of our weekly newsletter will be dedicated to letting YOU know what is happening in and around Western North Carolina.
