The Appalachian Women’s Museum has kicked off its first fundraiser since reaching an agreement with the Town of Dillsboro to restore and preserve the 1908 Farmhouse at the Monteith Farmstead.
Supporters can purchase “Coal for the Holidays” from Nancy Tut’s, HopBerry, and Bradley’s in Dillsboro, or It’s By Nature, the Chamber of Commerce, and Signature Brew in Sylva. Contributions can also be made at www.appwm.org.
Well it seems there was one and I’m sure it could have been my fault. Smoky Mountain News reporter Holly Kays called me Wednesday morning — Oct. 12 — to ask me what I thought of Haywood County commissioners’ latest resolution regarding wilderness designation in the Pisgah and Nantahala national forests. I told her I didn’t know, as I hadn’t seen the resolution. I told her I had a copy on my computer but that I hadn’t looked at it.
