Weaverville - A Marshall man was arrested by Weaverville Police following an influx of tips. Weaverville Police Chief Greg Stephens said the community, media and social media played a large role in capturing the suspect.
Social media efforts to identify Maines, said the Chief, including updates from the Weaverville Tribune, helped lead to Maines being apprehended. Kevin Robert Maines, 32, “was arrested without incident at his home on East Fork Road in Marshall,” Saturday, Nov. 14, according to a Weaverville Police Dept. press release. He “was charged with the breaking, entering and larceny of prescription medications from a house in Weaverville on Nov. 10.”

Roses out - Publix is in for 2016

Weaverville Plaza to become a “brand-new center”

by Heather Berry

Weaverville - Inland Real Estate Corporation, the commercial real estate development company
responsible for updating the Weaverville Shopping Plaza and bringing the Publix Super Market chain to the area has confirmed their plans to move Publix into the existing space now occupied by Roses Discount Store, 165 Weaver Blvd. In addition, the plaza is set to receive a complete renovation of parking lot and storefronts before Publix moves into their new space.
Cary Uretz, a representative for Inland Real Estate confirmed, via phone, the lease has been signed and, with the approval of the Weaverville Town Council, Publix will renovate and occupy 49,000 square feet, including the space currently occupied by the Roses store. “If approved by the Weaverville Town Council, the Publix will be going into the place of the existing Roses’.” Uretz said he was unsure when renovation plans would be presented to the town council, but construction is set to begin the first quarter of 2016.
He also acknowledged confusion among some Roses’ employees and residents. “We closed on the acquisition a few weeks ago, but it’s not unusual, unfortunately, in shopping plaza acquisitions and renovations, for rumors to swirl,” said Uretz. “We have been working on this project for over a year now,” he added, “but nothing is ever definite until it’s definite.”
