The Macon County Academic Foundation will hold the 25th annual Academic Auction at Cartoogechaye Elementary on Saturday March 31.

All proceeds from the event are set aside each year to fund educational activities for classes throughout the county.This year, one project that the funds from past auctions were used for was to help construct an outdoor classroom at Mountain View Intermediate.


Sixth grade students at Mountain View Intermediate were treated to special wildlife outreach presentations which included live wolves and lots of little critters last Friday, March 16.

The presentations were made possible through Wild South, a non-profit grassroots organization whose mission is to inspire people to enjoy, value and protect the wild character and natural legacy of the South.

The program started at noon with Rob Gudger and his four wolves. Gudger, an expert on wolf behavior spoke to students about the four-legged creatures.


Preschoolers, children ages 3-5 years are very curious. They ask questions and want to share what they know. Books can help them to explore the world, things in and far from what they encounter each day.

Why Read to Preschoolers

Curiosity about the world creates excitement for learning. Sharing books exposes preschoolers to people, animals, ideas, and words.


In honor of Sunshine Week, an annual homage to freedom of official information which is celebrated nationwide, Carolina Public Press held a series of public-record events to teach the importance of “Full Disclosure.”

The workshops, which were held at Western Carolina University and at University of North Carolina-Asheville, were designed to teach the general public about the information that’s available to anyone, if you only know where to look and how to ask.
