Tour de Cashiers
Tour de Cashiers is back! The annual event is set for Saturday, April 29th.
Cyclists follow one of three routes of up to 100 miles across Jackson, Macon and Transylvania Counties riding steep climbs and fast descents over 10,500 feet-plus of elevation changes. The event offers adventurous athletic challenges suitable for the seasoned to beginner rider. And for all, it’s great outdoor recreation amid breathtaking natural scenery featuring granite-faced mountains, flowering valleys and running rivers.

Delivering the Best ER
The new Emergency Department at the Highlands-Cashiers Hospital is nearing completion and is expected to open in May.
As the excitement builds, the staff anxiously await their new home. Cindy Pierson, Interim CNO for the hospital, is proud to report she’s been involved in the planning since June 2015.
When you finish reading this article, you’ll hug your washing machine. The majority of mountain families didn’t get electricity hooked up until after World War II. I’ve used two sources for this article, one being advice given to a new bride from her Kentucky grandmother and another being the memories of an Appalachian man.
