BC NEWS LIST
If you've been reading the news, you know that the City and County are still at odds over the water issue. Who owns the water? Should residents outside the City limits have to pay more for water? Will all this impact me?

If you are a fan of any of the CSI shows, you'll be interested to know that Buncombe has it's own CSI. These folks collect evidence at the crime scene that can be a major factor in the outcome of a trial.
It's not too late! The Buncombe County Soil & Water Conservation District has scheduled more chances to buy white pine seedlings!
