SYLVA – It’s been a century or so since anyone’s ice skated on Scotts Creek, but the Downtown Sylva

Association (DSA) thinks its a tradition that should be revived – at least in spirit.

The DSA and the Town of Sylva have announced plans for a “Sylva Skates” ice skating party on Scotts Creek, Feb. 5. There’s only one caveat: if the creek doesn’t freeze the whole thing’s called off.


Artwork from three Southwestern Community College students has been selected for display at the North Carolina Community College System Office in Raleigh.

Included is a sculpture by Deana Burchett of Robbinsville titled “Brothers Three,” a sculpture by Amelia Haynes of Whittier titled “Shape Shifter” and a print by Darrin Bark of Cherokee titled “Don’t Say It So Loud.” Each of these students is enrolled in SCC’s Fine Arts program at the Oconaluftee Institute for Cultural Arts in Cherokee.


Artist Reesa Boyce is exhibiting her original art in the Meeting Room of the Macon County Public LIbrary throughout the month of January. Ms. Boyce used found objects and her own watercolorings to create portraits of women in the Bible. Look for future news about a program and discussion with Reesa Boyce about her art at the library.

“Daytime Classic Country and Gospel Music at the Macon County Public Library” will be offered beginning Thursday, Jan. 20, and every first and third Thursday of each month from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.


A group of artists based in Asheville known as the Sanguine Theatre Company will be presenting a new play, “Dogfall” by Scot Lahaie, as a part of North Carolina Stage Company’s Catalyst Series on Jan. 14-16 and 21-23. Now in its seventh year, the Catalyst Series features performances from local, grassroots theatre companies. N.C. Stage collaborates with these companies to expand its own programming while providing resources for innovative theatre.

Playwright Professor Scot Lahaie from Shelby, N.C. will be taking on a new role as actor in this production of “Dogfall” as he portrays Dr. Jake McKenzie, a doctor known for assisting his patients to commit suicide because of terminal illness.
