Morning Edition 9/25/12: VICTORY LAB - THE SECRET SCIENCE OF WINNING CAMPAIGNS

  With every single day, there is another news story about this candidate or that candidate, this political ad or that one, this lie or that one and, yes, even this truth or that one.

 With so much coverage during any election, is it any wonder that most of us just want to tune it all out?

Morning Edition 9/24/12: CHAPMAN CULTURAL CENTER - THE 2012-13 SEASON

In the third in a series discussing the variety of entertainment available all around us here in Western North Carolina, I took a look at Chapman Cultural Center, just across the border in Spartanburg, SC.  Each of the previous offerings has been different in the types of entertainment offered, for whom the entertainment is selected, and,  in the case of the Chapman Cultural Center, the fact that it is possible to bring together an entire county's worth of organizations under one giant umbrella.

  The new season of arts and cultural events is here, and in my second of a series of examples of what is available in our coverage area, I'm speaking with Lori Davis of Arts and Cultural Events - or ACE - in Culowhee at Western Carolina University.

Morning Edition on Monday, Sept. 17th: OPEN HEARTS ART CENTER

Open Hearts Art Center is one of the most quiet organizations in Asheville. The fact that I had never heard of it before I was contacted about doing a story on the organization is no real surprise.  Sometimes when I get going in one direction, I miss everything that happens around me.  But it seems I'm not the only person who hasn't heard about Open Hearts and all of the wonderful, exciting things these folks do for 'differently-abled' adults from ages 18 to 70-something.

Morning Edition on 9/13: WALLACE: THE UNDERDOG WHO CONQUERED A SPORT, SAVED A MARRIAGE AND....

What do you think of when you see a pit bull?  Do you watch him carefully - whether he's on a leash or not?  Are you afraid he could attack at any moment? Unfortunately, that's the reaction most people have when they see or even hear about a pit bull.  Fortunately for Wallace not everyone feels that way, like author Jim Gorant, who heard about Wallace and just had to write his story.

Morning Edition on Wednesday, 9/12: THE FOUNDATION PERFORMING ARTS CENTER ANNOUNCES 2012-2013 SEASON

Here in Western North Carolina, the Piedmont and into South Carolina, there is no shortage of high-quality entertainment in a wide variety and to suit every taste - from children to adults. Over the next couple of weeks, I'll touch base with three organizations in order to give a cross-section of what is available for those in search of a good night out....or an afternoon out...or a morning, out for that matter. The first of these sources of great entertainment is the Performing Arts Center right here on the campus of Isothermal Community College.
