Folks enjoyed walking through a field of 97 car entries including antique, classic and late models at the Mountain High BBQ and Car Show held Friday and Saturday at the Wayne Proffitt Agricultural Center. The Southwestern Community College's Automotive Club sponsored and ran this year's show.

As folks entered the festival, they were given a raffle ticket for a $1,200 Holland Grill, donated by Macon Appliance Mart. Laura Craig was the winner and was thrilled. Raffle tickets for a Myron Mixon Smoker have been on sale for the last couple of months. This smoker was donated my Myron Mixon himself and was valued at $3,995. The winner of that smoker was Chris Hedden.

After a wreck that claimed the life of a mother and son last Wednesday, Macon County residents are working together to show support for the four children who lost their brother and mother.

Caleb and Joy Sloope lost their lives in a two-car accident on the Highlands Road last week that also sent three others to Mission Hospital in Asheville with serious injuries. Seventeen- year-old Cameron Sloope was airlifted from the scene to Mission Hospital, where she has spent the week recovering.

The Chevrolet van carrying the Sloope family collided with Hewart Hugel, 86, and his wife Ingrid of Florida. The Hugels were also transported to Mission Hospital.
