us know you can email us HERE. We will add you to the list on our calendar page HERE.
 HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
LET'S MAKE HAW CREEK SAFE FOR WALKING AND BIKE RIDERS - COMMUNITY MEETING OCTOBER 9TH -
By Chris Pelly
You’ve seen it: The moms with strollers, or the joggers, or the kids, or the bike riders, all straddling the edge of New or Old Haw Creek Road. It gives you a shiver knowing how easily things could go deadly wrong.
 
It doesn’t have to be this way. We can make it safer to move about in our community. Haw Creek residents have come together before to improve things and we can do it again.
 
Plan to join us 7pm Monday, October 9th when we welcome Esther Manheimer, Mayor of Asheville, and Anna Henderson, Division Traffic Engineer for the N.C. Dept. of Transportation, to discuss how to make our community safer for walking and biking. The meeting will take place in Evergreen Charter School at 50 Bell Road.

SPOTLIGHT ON EAST ASHEVILLE - By Linda Stanton
Nothing New, Inc. Used Furniture; BUY, SELL, CONSIGN
 
When you walk into the large open space at 811A Tunnel Rd, as the name suggests, you won’t see anything new. What you will see is an eclectic collection of used furniture, home décor items and other accessories. The store concept is at once a consignment shop, booth space for vendors as well select pieces curated from area auctions. With all the antique shops, thrift stores and furniture outlets in the Asheville region, Nothing New offers a unique shopping experience to customers looking for a wide variety of quality pieces at reasonable prices.
 
The business was started over six years ago by Steve Slagle who sold it to friend and fellow-business owner Brandon Snyder in 2015. Brandon grew up in West Asheville but his family settled in Redwood Forest here in East Asheville upon returning from an out of state move. Many members of his extended family also have Asheville area small business in trucking, auto sales and repair, body work and others. After serving in the Army, he went into business himself, owning a convenience store in Swannanoa for several years. Brandon had been looking for something different at the time Nothing New became available. Interested in the East Asheville area, he made an offer and the rest is history as they say.  Read More

NATURE'S CORNER, Persimmons - Jam on a Tree - By Jessie Wilder
Fall is my favorite time of year. The trees look all gussied up, the smell of wood smoke is in the air, nights are cool enough to throw on an extra blanket and the forest holds a special treat if you know where to look. I’m talking about wild persimmons.


Picking persimmons is not advisable. These astringent fruits have so much pucker power when unripe that my Granddaddy used to say, “They’ll turn your face inside out.” That’s why the fruits have to be so ripe that they fall from the tree or fall with a gentle shaking. This usually happens around the time of the first frost. My grandparents would put old quilts under the trees to collect the fallen fruit.  READ MORE
