Hawks retain jug despite mean game

by James Matthews

The battle for the jug is always exciting, but this year was a little more tense. Played on Friday (August 28), the North Buncombe BlackHawks faced off against the Madison Patriots in a game that was marked by isolated displays of poor sportsmanship and referee calls that made no sense.
Despite the adversity, the BlackHawks walloped the Patriots, winning the game 62 to 27.
The game began with the BlackHawks taking the lead on their first possession, after quarterback Chase Parker completed a pass for an approximate 80 yard touchdown. When the Patriots couldn’t make any ground, the very next BlackHawk possession ended up being a touchdown drive, thanks to Parker and Ricky Thrash. Two point-after-attempts (PAT) by BlackHawk kicker Tommy Apostolopoulos brought the score to 14-0. With the defense keeping the Patriots at bay, Apostolopoulos was put into range of another kick, this time for a field goal, bringing the score to 17-0. Read more...

Publix: sure thing, but when?

by Clint Parker


Several weeks ago the Tribune ran an article by freelance reporter Ashley Carter on the possibility of Publix Grocery eventually taking over the Roses discount store building at the Weaverville Plaza sometime in the future. The story caused a lot of discussion as to whether or not the story was correct, and actually possible, given that Roses has a lease on the store until 2017 and an option until 2022 according to a Variety Wholesalers official who owns the Roses chain.
Phil Pope, a representative of Variety Wholesalers Real Estate Department, told the Tribune “The only comment that I can make, we don’t make comments on this, but we have a lease that doesn’t expire until August 2017, and we have an additional option that takes us out to August 2022.” That was Pope’s comment in our volume 13, issue 33 paper.
Both Variety and Tessier Associates, which is the landlord of the Roses and the Weaverville Plaza, have failed to satisfy the Tribune that Carter’s story was incorrect. This week more information from an anonymous source has further confirmed Carter’s article, but without a fixed timetable for the change to occur.

Vehicle flies through the air before crashing

by James Matthews


A dramatic car wreck last week saw a vehicle go airborne, nearly a dozen vehicles damaged and
sent two individuals to the hospital. All because they wanted nachos.
The wreck occurred around noon on Wednesday (August 12), when Woodfin Police Officers witnessed a car going well over 50 miles per hour on Weaverville Road.
“The vehicle was observed traveling south on Weaverville Road at a high rate of speed,” said Woodfin Police Lieutenant Mike Dykes. “There were officers sitting at 110 Weaverville Road, there at the Hot Spot, and observed it go by.”
With a posted speed limit of 35, Woodfin Detective David Plyer prepared to give chase, but it ended before it began.
“By the time the officer [Plyler] pulled out to give pursuit, he had already lost sight of the vehicle, that’s because the vehicle had veered to the right into the parking lot of the Harbor Oaks shopping plaza.”
At this point, things got chaotic. “After the vehicle went through the parking lot of the plaza, it struck a curb which separates the plaza from Red’s Service station. The vehicle became airborne and struck the base of a sign there at Red’s and impacted, that big Chevy Suburban and also impacted another vehicle,” a Honda sedan.
