Probably my best metal detecting hunt ever! Got out with my buddy, Woody, who secured permission for us to detect some very old ground near his home. This will be the first of several hunts for us at this location. I'll do a wrap up of finds specifically for this site when we are finished hunting these awesome grounds. The landowner has granted us exclusive rights to come back anytime. What a hobby!

Last week, Cherokee County Sheriff Keith Lovin refused an open records request from a local paper, The Cherokee Scout, to release the names of concealed gun permit holders. The request brought an angry backlash against the Scout. Then the paper printed not one, but two public apologies for even requesting the information. The request and apology sparked a nationwide debate and now Scout editor Robert Horne has resigned. Those records are public. Courts have ruled that they're public, said UNCA journalism professor Michael Gouge. He scoffed at Sheriff Lovin's contention he's withholding the records to protect public safety and privacy. The information in there is not much different than the information you would get in the land records, which are available online. The state Attorney General's Office believes the gun permit records are public and routinely releases it. In fact, a spokeswoman told News 13's Mario Boone the only gun permit information not considered public are social security numbers, military status, and scars and tattoos. The North Carolina Sheriffs' Association is on the fence and said there are two schools of thought on the issue. Either sheriffs are for or against releasing the data. The group believes the matter must ultimately be decided by the courts if the legislature doesn't settle it first. %0
MILLS RIVER N.C. -- School officials in Mills River are kicking off Fire Prevention Month in an unconventional way for students by hosting a fire safety carnival They say it's a new and exciting way to get fire safety messages out to the students. Teachers say that using games helps the children take home what they learned. "When children are playing a game they usually get a little more out of it," Jeannie Payne of Mills River Fire Department said. "They learn just by playing X-Box and other things. They learn by doing, and by actively participating. So, to be able to play the game, they have to answer fire safety questions" Students learned about calling 911, stop drop and roll and had a special visit from Sparky the fire dog.
