Winter storm grinds county to a halt

by James Matthews

Buncombe County - A massive winter storm passed through the area, causing chaos throughout the county.
Aside from closing down the schools, Buncombe County Government also closed at 10 a.m., as heavy snow began to fall throughout the region.
According to the Weaverville Police Department’s Administrative Assistant Kim Buckner, “Believe it or not, we only had two accidents. One was on US-25 and one had to be transported to the hospital. The other accident involved four vehicles on Hamburg Mountain Road. That was the only thing we had. One with two cars and the other with four cars.”
Weaverville Police also took it a step further by preemptively ensuring that people would be safe during the storm. Via their “NEXTDOOR” social media page, which the police department uses to keep town residents updated with police activities, the department made a post about helping disabled and elderly neighbors with shoveling snow. In addition, Weaverville Police Chief Greg Stephens stated that “Kim Buckner, [Weaverville Police] Administrative Assistant, made several calls to some of our senior citizens well in advance of the storm to make sure everyone had food, heat and shelter.

NBHS AD Owens given ‘leave with pay’ after incident

by Clint Parker

An incident involving a physical altercation between a student and North Buncombe Athletic Director Barry Owens at the Friday night varsity boys’ basketball game resulted in what sources called a suspension, but what was called a forced “leave with pay,” pending further investigation, according to Jack Evans, principal at the high school.
According to Evans, the school is interested in receiving and reviewing any video taken of the incident.
Several sources, wishing to remain anonymous, state that, after the boys’ basketball game ended, a student, allegedly, jumped down from the bleachers and started to run onto the court. The student was stopped by Owens and shoved back. The student, then, tried to run outside the court and was, again, allegedly, shoved by Owens and backed up against the wall and given a “chewing out” by Owens. Read more...
