“Down The Chimney St. Nicholas Came With A Bound!”

For 20 years, two weeks in December, the Jolly Ol’ Man shows up to practice at Chimney Rock! Santa Claus comes to the Village of Chimney Rock and from the top of the rock, he drops down 200 feet! He is practicing for all the chimneys, regardless of size, he will have to come down on Christmas eve, all over the world.

The yearly event is something to behold. It is very popular especially with the kids. As they stand down below, in anticipation of his decent, you can hear them say: “Be careful Santa!” - “Don’t get hurt Santa!”.

Pre_Conference Look At High School Basketball: NFL Teams Make Playoff Push

Well, I have seen, heard, looked at stats and everything else under the sun to give a prognosis of how the high school basketball season should play out in the SMAC this season.

Listen To Life

Few things in life last forever, do they?

   I was packing a case of my books to ship to a business woman who purchased them to use as client appreciation gifts.  I needed a marker to write on the boxes so she’d know what was inside. 

    I dug around in my desk drawer and found a pack of markers in the back.  They had never been opened so I opened them, pulled out a blue one and started writing.  But the marker was dry.
