Literacy is a cornerstone to academic success for all children. Reading is the access point for all other content areas during a child’s educational years. The sooner children are able to read, and read well, the more successful they are in school and in life.

Read2Me is a public awareness campaign recently initiated in Macon County. Its purpose is to encourage the community at large to become highly invested in promoting the goal of children learning to read early and well, helping each child realize his or her potential in school and in life.


“Real Jobs NC,” “Civitas Action,” and “Americans for Prosperity” are Political Action Groups bankrolled by Art Pope, his family and associates.

Art Pope resides in eastern North Carolina. It is unlikely that he or his associates have ever spent much time in our corner of the state.

In the 2010 election his PACs spend millions of dollars here, trashing Democratic candidates and supporting Republicans. Art Pope is a businessman. He and his associates are buying a product. The product is Republican.


Did you know that in Macon Co. that what you will be voting on in May is just not a "Vote" On Marriage Equality, but will also stop in the future Civil Unions.

The two “Old Ladies” of 4 ½ Street want to thank all who attended our block party, celebrating 150 combined years of hospitality. We, the Innkeepers, Donna and Chris of Colonial Pines Inn and Rick and Helene of 4 ½ Street Inn, were overwhelmed with the response and the good wishes that you expressed. We love our community, and seeing everyone dancing, eating, drinking, and laughing together is an example of what makes Highlands such a special place to live.

We also thank the Town of Highlands, the Highlands Police Department and the Town Board for making it possible for us to close the street. We thank Dusty for getting more hot dogs on the fly when we ran out. And … what about that band - Tom Hill and the Midnight Suns! Thanks to Tom (Donna’s brother) for the toe-tapping sounds. Let’s get them back somehow, because they more than rocked!
