BOONE: My hometown

W

elcome to Boone, my hometown. Did you know that Boone’s elevation of 3,300 feet above sea level makes it the highest town for its size east of the Mississippi River? It is also one of the friendliest and most caring communities that I have ever experienced, filled with programs and organizations, and people who make Boone a very special place. My wife, Lana, and I have lived in Boone since 1973. Much has changed during this time. Our downtown is more vibrant and attractive, with first-rate restaurants, interesting shops, and notable historic sites such as our Jones House Community Center and historic post office. In the evenings, you can now find varied musical entertainment, ranging from “old-time” mountain music at the Jones House on Thursday evenings to jazz and other musical styles at numerous downtown venues. Many visitors pause for a moment downtown to admire the recently dedicated Doc Watson sculpture honoring one of our musical legends. Elsewhere in Boone you will find many citizens visiting the farmers’ market on Saturdays during the summer and fall. For five weeks in the summer, Boone’s Southern Appalachian Historical Association presents the “Horn in the West,” the second oldest outdoor historical drama in the U.S. And throughout the year, there are downtown celebrations from Christmas parades to our Halloween “Boo.” Appalachian State University has grown significantly in the last 43 years, adding enormously to our community with its wide range of cultural, intellectual and sporting events for the entire community. The 18,000-plus students add energy, enthusiasm and considerable public service in our community. As a retired professor of history at Appalachian, I have come to value the outstanding students, faculty and staff at our fine university. Our schools, efficient municipal government and beautiful greenways and parks also contribute to the unique charm of Boone. Visitors and residents take advantage of the nearby Blue Ridge Parkway, the Daniel Boone Native Gardens and Tweetsie Railroad. Boone is a special place, whether you are hiking or rafting in the summer or skiing in the winter. And you can always count on help from friendly people in Boone if you get lost or can’t find your destination. Information is always available from the professional staff at the Town Hall at 567 West King St. or the Boone Area Chamber of Commerce at 870 West King St., Suite A. I hope you will enjoy your stay in “Boone My Hometown” and plan to visit us many times in the future. All the best, Rennie Brantz, Mayor of Boone

Where a university town — with all the amenities and economic benefits that entails — meets a welcoming, rural, agricultural community. Where national and state parks, some of the highest peaks on the East Coast and the trout-filled headwaters of four major rivers are merely minutes away.

Welcome to Boone: the High Country’s regional economic center, the home of Appalachian State University, a nationally recognized outdoor recreation destination and North Carolina’s premier mountain town. The town of Boone was incorporated in 1872, acquiring its name from the famous pioneer and explorer Daniel Boone, who hunted and camped in the area. According to recent Census estimates,

Living in a university town has its advantages, including lectures, readings, forums and other educational events that are open to the public — and often free.

ASU FROM PAGE 12 The student to faculty ratio is 16:1, while the average class size is 27. The institution is divided into seven undergraduate colleges and a graduate school offering more than 150 majors. ASU regularly places high in the U.S. News and World Report’s Best Colleges rankings. More than 120,000 Mountaineer alumni currently reside in all 50 states and several foreign countries.

Economic impact

ASU is the largest employer in Watauga County, with about 3,000 employees. The campus is an economic engine for the county, region and the state. An analysis by Economic Modeling Specialists International concluded that in fiscal year 2012-13, the $355.3 million in payroll and operations spending of ASU, together with its construction spending and the spending of its students, visitors and alumni, created $1.7 billion in added state income. “This is equal to approximately 0.4 percent of the total gross state product of North Carolina and is equivalent to creating 28,035 new jobs,” the analysis stated.

Lifelong learning & community outreach Living in a town with such a large institution of higher learning has its advantages,

including lectures, readings, forums and other educational events that are open to the public — and often free. These include the University Forum Lecture Series, Hughlene Bostian Frank Visiting Writers Series, Diversity Celebration and numerous timely and informative events organized by faculty and students throughout the year. Community members can use Appalachian State’s 200,000-square-foot library and can even check out materials with a community library card. Regional residents also benefit from Appalachian’s commitment to community outreach. More than 100 programs at ASU have a community outreach focus, including support for families of children with special needs, arts education, swim and lifeguard classes, technical assistance for starting a business, the Communication Disorders Clinic, fitness testing, children’s summer camps, trail maintenance, public viewing nights at the Dark Sky Observatory and afterschool programs. In addition, area agencies and nonprofit organizations benefit from countless volunteer hours contributed by Appalachian students, faculty and staff.

Arts and entertainment

The university also offers multiple arts and entertainment opportunities, including exhibition programs and workshops in the visual arts; a performing arts series featuring world-renowned visiting artists; theater productions, concerts and recitals by Appalachian’s highly acclaimed Hayes School of Music and Department of Theatre and Dance; programs supporting student authors of poetry, fiction, plays and creative SEE ASU, PAGE 14

The county’s largest employer, Appalachian State University is also one of the area’s largest economic driving forces with more than 3,000 employees. Home to more than 18,000 students, the university doubles the population of Boone each semester as classes begin. The school is almost continually growing, most recently acquiring property to begin construction on a new home for the Beaver College of Health Sciences. App State also has a positive contribution on workforce education. According to Census data, 48 percent of Boone residents have a bachelor’s degree, and 88 percent have graduated high school. Tourism dollars also play a large part in the prosperity of Watauga County. Ac-

cording to the most recent data available from the N.C. Department of Commerce, the county claimed tourist impacts of more than $216 million in 2013 — a figure that has more than doubled since the first available data in 1991. In 2013, Watauga ranked 18th in highest travel impact among N.C.’s 100 counties. The health sector accounts for a large portion of Watauga County’s employment. Second only to App State in numbers, the Appalachian Regional Healthcare System employs more than 1,000 people. The healthcare system recently finished construction on a new facility in Blowing Rock. Watauga’s third-largest employer, Watauga County Schools, provides the county with 500-999 jobs.

The median and average prices in the High Country are still below the 10-year average and pre-recession pricing and are expected to rise slowly at sustainable rates. The highest prices are seen in the Blowing Rock and Valle Crucis/Foscoe areas, known for a large proportion of second homes and higher priced homes. The lowest prices can be found farther out in the county/away from towns, where the median price is $173,750. Boone’s median price of $215,000 reflects a higher proportion of condo sales, primarily closer to ASU. INVENTORY: The Boone and overall High Country real estate market is unique and appealing to buyers in that there is always a large inventory of homes and land. There is not a significant amount of industry in this area that creates “necessary relocations,” and a large proportion of homes are vacation homes. This results in a longer purchase cycle and a long pipeline of homes on the market. Average time on market is about seven months. SEE MARKET, PAGE 20

A variety of homes can be found in the real estate market.

MARKET FROM PAGE 19 SEASONALITY: Traditionally the “season” for Boone real estate sales has run May through October. However, in recent years sales have begun to even out across the entire year. Sellers are more frequently keeping their homes on the market through the winter, and buyers have been active in winter and spring. Visitors to Boone often wonder where

to find the homes they see online and in magazines. A large portion of the homes in Boone are tucked away in small subdivisions and neighborhoods. With the mountain terrain and numerous back roads, it is difficult to really know where to find many of these homes. If you are interested in purchasing a home and want to get a feel for these neighborhoods, your best bet is to contact a local Realtor. The seller pays the Realtor’s commission, so there is no cost to you.

Top-notch education in Watauga BY GARRETT PRICE

W

atauga County families are served by some of the best education opportunities in the state of North Carolina. From a high-performing, well-established public school system, to Watauga’s top tier charter and Montessori schools, High Country residents can rest assured that their children can be provided the best possible education right here in Boone. The majority of students in Boone and the surrounding county are served by Watauga’s public school system, Watauga County Schools. The system is home to nine schools — eight that educates students in kindergarten through eighthgrade and one consolidated high school. Currently the school system is home to more than 4,600 students. Early this year, data compiled by the

North Carolina State Board of Education showed that Watauga High School, in addition to exceeding almost every standard set by the state, also boasted a record high 90 percent graduation rate. The county’s public elementary schools have also excelled over the past years. Figures based on end-of-grade testing in Watauga’s eight K-8 schools saw local students exceed state averages in several categories. In reading tests, 66 percent of WCS students in grades 3-8 achieved proficiency, a full 10 percent above the North Carolina statewide figure of 56 percent. Students also beat the state average in mathematics. In math tests, 65 percent of WCS students demonstrated proficiency compared to 54 percent statewide. Students also excelled in science with 79 percent of WCS fifth graders and 84 percent of eighth SEE EDUCATION, PAGE 22

EDUCATION FROM PAGE 26 Mountain Pathways Montessori School was founded in Watauga County in 1987. According to the school, Mountain Pathways was founded by a “group of parents and educators who wanted for our region’s children an opportunity for interdisciplinary education that met the needs of the whole child.” The school is currently home to 81 students and a staff of 15. Every lead teacher at Mountain Pathways is Montessori trained and certified. Grace Academy is a classical Christian School founded in Boone in 2008. The school follows a classical style of education that includes instruction of Latin. While not affiliated with a particular denomination, the school says it is “is distinctly Christian in its worldview, and its doctrinal commitments are consistent with those expressed in the early ecumenical creeds of Christianity and those arising out of the protestant reformation of the 16th and 17th centuries.” The K-9 school is home to 103 students and a staff of 19 and follows a “college model” in which students receive instruction on Mondays and Wednesdays and have three days in which they are able to work on review either at home or with instructors at the school. The High Country is also a supportive community for homeschooling families, with physical education opportunities provided by App State and support groups such as High Country Christian Home Schoolers.

BOONE’S WEATHER From Summer to Winter

BY CHAMIAN CRUZ

A

t an elevation of about 3,300 feet, Boone residents experience everything from cool summers to a snow-filled winter, providing plenty of seasonal weather variety for visitors from both the north and south. Throughout the year, the average annual precipitation in Boone is 52.65 inches, comparable to that of a rainforest. With so much rain, humidity can be high, and it can get very foggy. Waking up to a misty mountain view can be beautiful, but it also requires cautious driving, especially along winding roads.

Even with the summer heat, a slight mountain breeze is enough to keep residents and visitors cool as they enjoy some of the many outdoor activities that Boone has to offer. January is normally the month with the lowest temperatures, with an average of 21 degrees Fahrenheit. Once winter is in full swing, the ground is often covered in snow. According to the National Weather Service, the average annual snowfall in Boone is 34 inches. Snow can start to fall as early as October, cutting fall short, or as late as April

or March, extending winter into spring. At least one blizzard typically occurs between those months. While the harsh winter weather can deter some from venturing outdoors, others make the trip to Boone specifically to enjoy the cold through snow sports like skiing and snowboarding. Through it all, fall is perhaps one of the most popular times of the year though because of “leaf season,” as it is most commonly known. Temperatures start to lower from the high-70s in September and into the 60s in October. The array of orange, red and yellow leaves, both on the ground and on trees, attracts photo enthusiasts and other visitors alike. No matter the weather preference, Boone offers a little bit of every season’s charm for everyone to enjoy.

hat better way to spend the evening than taking in the sights and enjoying local art galleries? Throughout the High Country, art crawls are held on select dates each month, giving residents and visitors the option to spend the evening in the mountains, where the weather is cool, the people are friendly and artistic talent is abundant.

DOWNTOWN BOONE FIRST FRIDAYS On the first Friday of every month, visitors can come to

downtown Boone to shop, mingle and meet local artists from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at shops and galleries. Attendees are free to stay late for live music and enjoy food and drinks at one of the many fine restaurants located in Boone.

SECOND SATURDAY CELEBRATION OF THE ARTS Start your day off with a visit to the participating studios and galleries on the second Saturday for a studio and gallery hop through downtown Boone. For participating studios, visit www.watauga-arts.org. Participants then can visit the Blue Ridge ArtSpace in

ost tourists travel to Boone to enjoy the scenic view of the mountains or to enjoy the many outdoor sports that Boone has to offer, but there are also hundreds of shops from high end to thrift scattered throughout the area for shoppers to choose from. A few stores are reminiscent of oldtime Boone. The original Mast General Store, which opened in 1883 in Valle Crucis, expanded in 1988 to include a store in downtown Boone. The stores offer anything from name brand clothing such as North Face and Columbia to apothecary, toys, outdoor gear and candy. Across the street from the Mast General Store is another shop reminiscent

of Boone’s past. The Shoppes at Farmers Hardware and Supply Company opened in 2005 and sells merchandise from various retailers and local artisans. Boutique and specialty stores such as Lucky Penny, Boone Belles, Lililu on King and Watsonnata Western World are also located on King Street. The stores offer trendy clothing for any occasion. Boone Mall features a large selection of stores, including JCPenney, Belk, Old Navy, Maurices, Rue 21 and Claire’s. TJ Maxx, also at the Boone Mall, is a good place to go for a bargain on new clothing, accessories, toys and home decor. If that selection isn’t enough, the Tanger Outlets in Blowing Rock are about six miles along U.S. 321 from Boone Mall. Women and men looking for profesSEE SHOPPING, PAGE 37

Women have even more selection with stores like LOFT, White House Black Market and Dressbarn. The outlets also have stores like Carter’s Babies and Kids and OshKosh B’gosh for children’s apparel. One street down from the outlets is downtown Blowing Rock, with all sorts of unique shops and boutiques to choose from. Other than clothing, downtown Blowing Rock also features great antique and craft shops for home decor like Hanna’s, Cabin Fever, Final Touches and Rustic. Galleries to visit in both Boone and Blowing Rock include Doe Ridge Pottery Gallery for local handmade pottery, Reinert Fine Art for paintings from emerging artists and national well-renowned artists and Main Street Gallery/ Expressions Craft and Hands Gallery for local artists’ handcrafted works. There are also a number of thrift stores scattered throughout the area. Anna Banana’s is a consignment store that buys and sells gently used clothes and shoes, so it is not uncommon to find vintage and brand name items at half of their original price. Ram’s Rack Thrift Shop is also located on King Street and offers a chance to buy secondhand items for the whole family like children’s clothes and outdoor supplies. For more thrifting options, two Goodwill stores are within two miles apart in Watauga County.

Moving to Boone? RAM’s Rack Thrift Shop is your source for fairly priced goods, used furniture and household furnishings. The thrift shop also accepts donations of used furniture, appliances, household items and clothing.

THE BLUE RIDGE PARKWAY One of the nation’s most loved national parks is minutes away from Boone. BY BRIAN MILLER

T

he 469-mile Blue Ridge Parkway is one of the most visited sections of the National Park System. To go along with the beautiful scenery, the parkway also offers recreational, educational and cultural experiences, incorporating numerous campgrounds, picnic areas and more than 300 miles of hiking trails. The varied habitats along the parkway offer protection to an enormous diversity of plants and animals. Supporting as many plant species as any other unit of America’s National Park System, including more than 100 species of trees, the parkway offers incredible views. Monitoring the weather is an important factor in making the parkway experience as safe and enjoyable as possible. It’s encouraged to plan extensively to avoid unexpected road or weather conditions.

Weather on the parkway can vary widely due to different elevations and locations, according to parkway officials. The parkway experience is meant to be slowpaced and relaxing for drivers, but it’s important to avoid distractions by enjoying the park’s beauty from designated viewing and parking areas. The safest way to enjoy the views is by parking at overlooks available along the road, which appear frequently at regular intervals. Park staff reminds visitors that the parkway is a living and fragile resource, and visitors can help protect it by following park regulations. The park website provides a real-time road closure map, facility schedules, safety information, suggested itineraries, visitor center locations and more at www.nps.gov/blri. Visitors can also follow park updates on Facebook at www.facebook.com/BlueRidgeNPS.

M O U N T A I N VI S T A S Treating Clients Like Family

Century 21 Mountain Vistas helps local sellers, buyers from around the country

The word vista has several meanings: a large and beautiful view of an area, a far-reaching mental view, or a possible event that one can imagine. The business of Century 21 Mountain Vistas is to connect buyers with their own High Country vista, and to do so with family service. Adina Prowant, Century 21’s owner and broker-in-charge, moved to Boone from Wilmington in order to help care for her mother who suffers from Alzheimer’s disease. Prowant aids her father and mother, providing for them financially and helping them with everyday tasks like shopping, paying bills and yard work. She purchased Century 21 Elliott Properties in October 2015 and set to work. “We help buyers and sellers to accomplish their goals in real estate,” Prowant said. “We treat our clients like we would want our parents or family treated: with honesty and respect. We fight hard for our clients and keep them educated along the selling process.” Prowant said when a client chooses to buy or sell with Century 21, they are getting not only her support, but the support of an entire team of dedicated professionals that she employs. “As an owner, I have high standards for my agents, and I believe in rewarding them when they do outstanding things. We have a lot of friendly competitions and really enjoy being around one another. We are a team, and when a client hires one of us, they get the backing of our entire office.” Prowant said it is her goal to take the stress out of the home-buying process for her clients, taking away the difficulty and allowing those who hire her agency to focus on the positives of the process — the excitement of moving into a new home or selling their current home. “More than anything, we want our clients to feel good once they have closed on their home. We want them to enjoy the process and be excited about it. So we do our best to take on all the stress for them.” On its website, Century 21 Mountain Vistas noted, “the area in which we live has some of the most beautiful views in North Carolina, and even the country. Many people retire here or long to move their families here because of that beauty. That may be an event you have dreamt of, moving to the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you have imagined or have a far-mental view of residing here, then you understand Mountain Vistas. “ Century 21 Mountain Vistas is a local firm in Boone, but the Century 21 family has over 6,900 offices with over 101,000 realtors working together to serve its clients. The Century 21 brand has been named the company with the highest overall satisfaction for first-time home sellers, first-time home buyers, repeat home sellers and repeat home buyers among national full service real estate firms three years in a row by J.D. Power. “We at Century 21 Mountain Vistas love what we do, love the area we serve and are proud to work with you,” the business said. By Garrett Price
