Water moratorium lifted at meeting

By Clint Parker

Weaverville – The water started flowing again at Weaverville’s Town Council meeting Monday evening (Sept 18) when, among a number of items on the agenda, the board voted to rescind the moratorium on requests for water from outside the town limits.

The motion passed after a workshop on the water plant expansion was held on Tuesday evening (Sept. 12) and there Public Works Director Tony Laughter announced that the Monticello Common project was dead. That freed up over five percent of the total water capacity of the plant (see story page 8). Laughter was not present at the regular town meeting because of health reasons, but had said at the workshop that his recommendation was to remove the moratorium.

The board also created a new board called the Town of Weaverville Recreation Advisory Board. Town Manager Selena Coffey said that the move would help the town in an effort to win a grant to help with the Lake Louise Community Center project where the town voted last month to pursue the building of a new facility. The board will be made up of the citizen members of the current Lake Louise Preservation Board with the addition of Beth Mangum and Nicole Ogg. Read more...

Ballard sets SAC record
in game against Mars Hill


Mars Hill – Morgan Ballard, a graduate and former volleyball player for North Buncombe High School, established a new South Atlantic Conference record with 58 digs in a match between Carson-Newman (C-N) and Mars Hill. C-N won in four sets (25-23, 25-14, 15-25 and 25-20) at Stanford Arena Saturday afternoon (September 9).

The previous conference record was set by Jenny Young of Catawba versus Tusculum in September of 2011 in a five-set outing. Caitlyn Dean held the mark for a SAC athlete in a four-set affair when she racked up 47 for the Pioneers against Anderson (SC) in October of 2012.

The career high for Ballard, a sophomore at C-N, surpassed her previous high watermark of 22 while resetting C-N’s record of 46 set by Taylor Lowe in the season finale of 2016. Read more...
