Mild, wet summer ahead for Asheville area

6/21/2013 - Mild, wet summer ahead for Asheville area
by Sabian Warren

ASHEVILLE -- Landscaper Charlie Lawrence says he can't remember a better spring in terms of mild temperatures and plentiful rain, conditions that are good for his business.

"The mowing part of it is going well," said Lawrence, owner of Charlie's Lawn and Landscaping Service of Asheville. "It's been an ideal spring. It's just been real comfortable. I hope it stays like this the whole summer."

Lawrence may get his wish. A long-range forecast for Asheville from the National Weather Service's Climate Prediction Center calls for temperatures to be about average and rainfall to be above average for July, August and September.

If accurate, the summer -- officially starting today -- would be an extension of a weather pattern that has produced only one 90-degree day so far and record rainfall.

Asheville's Foodtopia campaign

6/17/2013 - Asheville's Foodtopia campaign
by Mackensy Lunsford - Asheville Citizen Times

Asheville is a food-centric town, and increasingly the focus on food is paying off.

The Asheville Convention and Visitors Bureau works to draw tourism through our food scene, branding the city and its food events, tailgate markets and independent restaurants the "Foodtopian Society," and "Foodtopia," both trademarked terms.

"The surprising piece that consumers are finding is that we are, authentically, a great food destination," said Marla Tambellini of the CVB. Lately, the CVB and the food community it supports have had to look at a relatively new phenomenon: what to do when the marketing proves successful.

6/14/2013 - Workshop in July aims to increase WNC ag exports
by Julia Ritchey - Mountain XPress

The N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services will host a workshop July 16 in Asheville for agribusiness owners interested in exporting their products. The workshop, "Explore Exporting: The World is Waiting," is customized for food and agriculture-related businesses, but is open to all small businesses in Western North Carolina.

"U.S. consumers make up just 5 percent of the global market," said Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "This workshop is a great way for small businesses in Western North Carolina to learn how they can reach the other 95 percent of the world's market."

6/7/2013 - Rockabilly queen to headline Bele Chere
by Jason Sandford - Asheville Citizen Times

ASHEVILLE -- Wanda Jackson, a 75-year-old rockabilly pioneer, is one of the top acts scheduled to play at Bele Chere in July, according to the music website Pollstar.com.

Other acts set to play include Randall Bramblett, Mountain Heart, Rory Kelly's Triple Threat, Johnathan Scales Fourchestra and Yo Mamma's Big Fat Booty Band, according to the website.

Bele Chere is the city-produced summer street party that draws tens of thousands of visitors to the heart of downtown on the last full weekend of July. The future of the festival is in doubt after City Council members announced earlier this year that they'd reached an unofficial consensus to stop producing the event.
