"Of here to do business grow this region and ultimately you know compete for some of that once base. Yeah absolutely and I think you know having just really having that on the bottle definitely helps because it does set. Aside saying hey. This place is different grows or has perfect conditions for growing wine and it's consistent quality wine across that area so definitely a long lasting peace that they gave to the state itself. So let's let's talk a little bit about You know the the grapes that are actually grown at because we kind of touched on a little bit on pieces there What is it that Chilton gross all right? I'll I'll start off on varieties of so. We grow ten Different grape varieties. Total all the net FRA. Currently we have four Whiteson six. Read the whites that we grow. We have riesling. Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc and deep man. Sang We also have Cabernet Sauvignon Cabernet Franc Merlot. To Not Mullebeck and cheaper does the big Bordeaux varieties and and also to not throw it in there to To have some variety As mania had mentioned earlier You know we're twenty years in here Shelton's and so there's been there certainly been hearing of trial and error over the years and You know as as he said we have seen in years ago. I think there was also a survey rob t Sarah Vienna Sanjay See So and we just switch varieties over. The years finally landed on these. That seemed to be working well for us. And discussing varietal. Selection for a winery is a very very long conversation but And it has to bit. You know the dip various business models for your particular winery But they seem to be working very well for a lot. A lot of big name varieties and that works. Well when you're thinking about the line Not only in your tasting room but also on the store shelves you people immediately recognize Riesling Sauvignon Blanc Chardonnay The petite man saying is rather new edition We should be getting our first vintage off of that. Twenty twenty one so that's coming along quite well. I'm looking forward to that So yeah so got a got quite the SPEC from the of different varieties choose from and I saw recently. You're planting more mullebeck yet that's We have a new block of Mullebeck. We were putting in some Replacement binds Yesterday filling in some of the some of the gaps so yeah we currently We currently have around three acres of Mullebeck over just beating those numbers up a little bit and adding another Another three and a half acres. So what's the best variety in your? Oh that's that's a loaded question Well as I think everyone that you you guys would agree to you. I mean are petite. Rudo I mean as the red go just looking at it from the culture standpoint De Brito does very well you know consistently produces a Quality red wine You know the chemistry's from field in the from the Jews it's it's excellent one of my favorite reds That's that's For sure Also you know. I've talked about this a lot. Too Not It's it's becoming popular in the area in. It's it's certainly one of my favorite varieties It maintains its acidity very well in the field. Actually Sometimes have to make the we have to watch it and hope the PH actually continues to go up so long to acidic. That's a great problem to have for for reds here in here in North Carolina And also I think for our reds that it has the most consistent quality from vintage to vintage which is huge for obviously the quality of wine that you're producing but also from a business perspective of knowing that you're going to have that quality and and it's reliable. Tonight's the darkest variety that One of the darkest varieties I've worked with worked with hybrids natives and things like that And so there's a it's it's one of my personal favorites For the for the white varieties the man saying I've made in the past Elsewhere in it's it's one of my favorites. I'm really looking forward to that. We don't have that on the shelves but yet But actually Soviet blogs been been a variety that it surprises me how versatile it is in the winery in the field. It is a very delicate. It is a very delicate variety. I mean you really have to harvest it at the opportune time and you have to be it out in the field But once you get into the winery you can make anything from you. Know a more mineral. Driven french-style Sauvignon Blanc To a more fruit forward Or basis leaning more toward that New Zealand style so depending on the stylistic techniques you take a wider you have a lot of versatility with that and that's actually been really exciting to me over the over the past couple years working with that so the sexually probably a really good spot to take a quick little break so we can hop into our wine education segment. But then we'll be right back and we will talk more about the wines that you make with those grapes. It's time again for wine class with the mine. Mouths Jesse and Jessica welcome back. What are we covering today? Are absolute favorite topic. Rose Ache so we're going to start talking a little bit about. Just how rose as made the differences from red and white wine and in general there's a million ways to make resume and there's a lot of different things but mostly rose made from red grapes. Obsoleted like white one. Yeah that's like the bullet. There is no such thing as pink grapes so as we talk about last time you know most most red grapes when they use the juices clear. So that makes sense yes. Yes so squished red grape immediately. You would get wine but rose as made by allowing the skins to sit on the grape juice for a period of time depends on how long you what style you're looking for what you're going for. But yeah not give it the distinctive color but that time can be short as like an hour and you'll get some color so when you're at the grocery store the wine store wherever else you see all these varying shades of Rosa. What's the difference between them? There's a lot of different factors. I the grapes themselves. I mean yes there. All right grapes. But some grapes may have more of a bluish tone to Some may have more of a bricky shades of red. So you know if you get just a little bit of that color may turn out to be a diversion pink that also they are made in different ways so you can have longer skin contact and get something that has more color. So there are three general ways to make maceration Sonia and blending so we'll dive into each of those a little bit so maceration most common to make so. The grapes are picked crushed. And then the against it's on the skins for a little bit of time Aspiration is just the active. The grapes sitting with the skins use the second. Sonya is a French term. This means to bleed off. So do you WanNa talk about that one a little bit or say this one is kind of when you're gonNA make red wine and you decide. Well let me just pull out a little bit of the juice early on and make Rosa and then I still have my red wine in the back and really concentrates the flavor of the red wine a little bit more exactly. You're kind of like trying to make two out of one interesting. No waste product more. Bang for your buck and then blending so this is just mixing finished red and white wine together to make a pink bland or blending different rules eight. Maybe even lending before you ferment. Blending is very wide term. A lot of your grocery store wine at lower price points are probably just going to be blended. That's typically read more Redmond with a lot of white so now when it comes to rose as would you like about them. Do you like the lighter spectrum or do you like the darker more full. Were your thoughts. Yes and so I tend to lean more towards the lighter but I also really enjoy sparkley them champagne or any of the sparkling kind of options and I liked the latter two. But it depends on what you're doing with the wine or what you're pairing with of you might want to be Rosa okay. I can see that almost treated like a red. If you stick mistaken Rosie too so if you're going to a dinner party but don't what's being served? What kind of wine do you bring or Thanksgiving? And that's because rooseveltism pretty much adventure. There's a few caveats in there but it's always a bit. Yeah for sure and I think it needs to get a bad rap. It's really such a popular wine right now but it doesn't have to be sweet. I think people will see their pink color and used to think more commonly that. Are this going to be fruity. Girly sweet brine. It can still be a toss up looking at the grocery store and you see all the be a toss up if you're going to get a sweeter dry so it's true the label carefully and when all else fails go for one from France This is a win. Isn't okay time to have. I think anytime of day breakfast lunch dinner after dinner. Yes anytime of year for sure I mean. They put Roseanne Cans. Now so it'd be aligned. Yeah whether you're going to be true mountains floating downriver or even to Beech Mountain. I'm going there next again. Excellent Rosa yeah good idea. We have a lot of great as North Carolina to you can make them from a lot of different grapes but there are some of the standards. Cab Franck Chanson even. Yeah Sure Chambers Chamber Does Not Take Long Automakers. So do you have a favorite Rosie grape over me? Grenache Aphid or high if he has it's probably why well guess any other? Rosaiah tips that you have for our listeners or for US straight Thursday at all like our conversations Corozzo is perfect at any time of day. So Jesse Jessica thank you very much for giving US Little Rosa Education..

"Yeah so when I had a student talk about the death of family member. I'm not even exaggerating. Like fifteen fifteen kids wanted to talk about like their dead relatives or what's And then of course inevitably it comes up like what happens when you die and depending on your religious faith take your finger believes everyone's coming in from but everyone's like talking over each and some kids are like like freaking out because their classmates sang different. Never heard before. Oh my gosh just kind of calming that situation saying you know well depending on what your beliefs are. Everybody thinks something difference. Unfortunately there really isn't. Who's right or wrong right and I think that type of phrasing can yeah? That's like the best answer you can give but certainly like a follow up to parents of like. Hey so this came up in class today in case the dinner table wanting to respect all of you like I obviously did not commit to one particular idea of afterlife but might WanNa have befall conversation with your child. So yeah. That's definitely one where I've been a little stumped before so that's a good one interesting and then someone else asked mel asked asked. How do you approach topics like mental health? I actually start and I truthfully I'm very transparent with us about my own journey and my own struggles like I've I talked to my students about having dealt with depression and anxiety and when we talk a lot about identity differences that some of those things are seen in and some of them are unseen. And just. Because you can't tell what somebody's going through just by looking at them doesn't mean you can make the assumption that you know everything about them And I think a lot of that empathy and perspective taking work is really really important. You know the idea of being unwell doesn't have to do with breaking your leg or having the flu But there are a lot of other things that manifest themselves very different reasons to awesome. Yeah I agree. That's a good way to put it so now. Have some rapid fire questions that I ask all of our guests at the end of the show. Are you ready. Yeah okay the first question is what does your dream. Life Look like reading a lot like young if I could choose between like Beech Mountain Cabin every other day just reading with my friends hanging out the amazing a so. What is one book or resource? You recommend to everybody right now. It would be era Mex- candies newer book occur how to be an anti-racist I think it's a great nation like narrative in history but also giving people ideas of what types of action to take in order to become like anti-racist citizens it's really good awesome and you tend to read books in this like genre or like what type of books do you grabbed tapes. Were all my gosh. I read a lot of history and social sciences. That's that's my entire bookshelves. My partner is not super thrilled. With how many well. What is one habit that has changed your life saying saying no to things? Yeah that's a good one not feeling obligated. I think with educators and people who work with kids in an industry of of care at all. It's very common to just WANNA put other people before you constantly in your own needs burner recognizing that it's really important to create boundaries and it's okay to say no and not have to feel bad about it. Oh Yeah I think. That's a huge lesson for teachers. Especially because you're so helpful and so giving you need to Have that boundary. Give back to yourself. Yeah and there is such a good damaging narrative teacher murder. You know. It's always more kids. They always come first but you know what if you're sick sick and struggling like you're not going to be of used anybody exactly. I'm happy you brought that up so the next one is what's the best life or career advice you've ever gotten do. It's you have to due to do what you WANNA do. My mentor teacher. told me that one there are some times just certain hoops. That are really annoying that you have to jump through. But if they're going to allow you to pursue what really matters to you just gotta done. Yep Yep that's life okay. The last one finish the sentence. The most amazing part about life is is variety But some new answer precisely the same okay also have and lastly Liz. Where can we find find you online? I am by far the most active on instagram. My handle at teach entrance spine. I also have a website teach transform dot org then also have twitter twitter and facebook accounts under the same name. But I don't use them nearly as much yeah. Your instagram is amazing. Thank you so much for being here again. I love the work that you I do. Keep doing it keep doing you thank you so much. I really appreciate it all right. I hope you like the interview with loose Kline Rock and now I just WANNA share some takeaways. From our conversation station the first takeaway is one of the most important things you can do is grow yourself. Learn to be more aware of your own story your own baggage and your own biases because all of that affects your thinking it affects your conversations just affects how you put yourself out into the world and and interact with other people so we are all biased in our own way. The first step is admitting that you do have your own biased. Just based on how you were raised and the environment airman you grew up in things like that and awareness is really the first step to begin dismantling this old thought patterns or these old biases that you may have the the second takeaway is to always question what you think you know because those maybe biases so don't make any assumptions. What you think you know may be wrong so go into conversations with an open mind and seek to learn and understand? I never assume that you know everything about a topic topic or that. You are right and someone else's wrong because it's never black and white the lasky takeaway I got from this conversation is that kids are much smarter and have more more to say than we give them credit for. We should empower our youth rather than dismissing them. And I think so. Often we dismiss kids because we think they don't know anything or they're too young young but really I remember being a kid if you think back on when you were a kid even when you're in second or third grade you already have an idea of the world how things work and you're already pretty tapped into pop culture mainstream media. You know what's going on. You know what people are talking about. So yeah just. Don't dismiss kids and really empower them and encourage them to have more of these open conversations about social justice and important issues all right. That's it for today's podcast sending you all so much love and I will talk to you next time. All right. That's it for today's episode. Thank you so much for listening to the lavender lifestyle.

"Seven jars one Jack Daniels, Miller, beer and lake. Norman Chrysler Dodge Jeep ram. The fact we love you so much. He's all we talk about. Well, how much we love news news eleven ten ninety nine three. WBZ? Hi, Bill Bhartiya. We're back on the Carolina outdoors and your fresh back from a ski trip out west. And I really thought you'd for yourself. So I'm very proud of you. But if you had who would have saved you. Well, listen, we're going to find out about that. Because I don't know if anybody would have saved me. Put up a marker. Did you pick up jacket over there? We saw in the woods. Oh my goodness. No. That wasn't a jacket that was Bill anyway. We're going to talk a little bit as we have before here on the Carolina outdoors about ski patrol, whether it be local wetter be the national ski patrol, and how that's put together and who better to talk with then our friend, Richard Gere check who is on the board of the national ski patrol, Richard. Welcome back to the Carolina outdoors. This is one of my favorite phone calls all year, guys. May we love getting you on here? Of course, we've had some weather whether it be here locally our friends at west to plenty of snow going on. And of course, we've had the the first holiday of the year with the Martin Luther King weekend taking place but upcoming or president's day, spring breaks all of those long weekends and people who didn't get away during the week. There's plenty of skiing going on. But since we last spoke to you something has big has happened in your world. How in the world did a Union County North Carolina boy make it onto the board of the national ski patrol. Well, the way that works is that there are thirty one thousand ski patrollers around the world and the board puts out a request for candidates every year, and they put a list of needs out there. And if you think. Thank your skill set fits those list of needs. You you fill out the process, and and get your name put out there as a candidate. And then folks from all over the world have to vote for you. Well, talk to us a little bit about the mission. And I guess the responsibility nationally for what the national ski patrol does. Well, so you've got a couple of different parts of this. The national ski patrol is is a big education body that that that does all the education for outdoor emergency care, outdoor emergency transportation. We do avalanche training avalanche rescue training. So all of the stuff that that a a mountain would need whether it be in cattle. Or beech mountain North Carolina or out into Colorado, and Utah all of those things that those mountains need that education can come up underneath the national ski patrol, and we provide all of that with instructors and curriculum. And you know, so we we put all that together. So that then the people who ski at beech mountain or who ski at snow bird and Utah. All have a place. They can go to be educated. So that they can then be ski patrollers at those mountains. Well, thank goodness. I made it through my last ski outing with no incident. No accident, but one thing and we talked about it on prior segments. While we were out there in the last few trips to mountains on ski trips. It seems like helmets are mainstream international you really everybody almost is wearing a helmet similar to the bicycle industry. These days or to the motorcycle industry all the down South Carolina at the BUSTER Boyd bridge, you can say PayPal pull over to the gas station and take off their helmets because they have no helmet. South carolina. But listen ski and snowboard almost everyone is wearing helmets. These days is that one of the educational components that the national ski patrol help push forward in conjunction with resort saying the ski industry it is. In fact, we've got a new program that we're initiating this year, you know, in conduct in conjunction with the industry called lids on kids. So we want we want as many kids to have lids as we possibly can. Because we know so much more about concussions and head injuries. And what the not just the short term effect of those can be, but what the long term effects of those are. And it's important for us, as you know, as the the medical component of that industry, and as the education component of that industry that we help support. Lives on kids. And then just helmets on just anybody in general now, I have been known to call him brain buckets. So you know, if you like your brain you wanna go skiing with it in a bucket. Well, there you go. Now, we'll talk about stereotypes a minute. Do you guys have or did you ever have Saint bernards with kegs on our necks? Well, I think out west there have been a number of different variations of that is certainly in Europe. You know, I think we've saved from Saint bernards that that we're used to to to recover people from avalanches now when you look at our avalanche dogs or the short term Abby dogs. They tend to be border collies, and golden retrievers, and so far I have not seen any show up at a rescue with a with a small barrel around their necks. That I'm sure can be handled off the slope somewhere after you've been dug out of the snow. I know for a factor border collie can save me. So I'm all for them. And I'll forgo the keg. Thank you, go. You've been there done that that voice, right? There is Don Yeager. I'm Bill Bartram Bill Bartee easy for me to say our gas, Richard. Your check national ski patrol Union County, North Carolina. Of course, Richard your home mountain is beech mountain. You can save people up there and educate people up there throughout the winter months and beyond but is lifts and equipment and obstructions. And here's my last one people that ski out of bounds. Does that fall into the bailiwick if you will of the national ski patrol, and how big a concern is that nationally where people are going off of a resort, maybe even trespassing depending on what kind of property property. It is disrupting into snow avalanches, and such is that a real thing. A problem if you will. Well, and that's that's a real thing. So beech mountain North Carolina. We don't we don't have avalanches. But we do have people that liked to ski out of bounds. And that you know that then becomes a problem for us because those are unsafe areas. So even if you're wearing a helmet and ski at a high rate of speed into a tree it's not going to do a lot for you. So skiing out of bounds is one of those things that we we discourage and ski patrols all over the United States will clip a lift ticket for that. Because it's it's just unsafe. It's unsafe for you. It's unsafe for the ski patrollers when we've got to come rescue you. It's unsafe for you know, anybody else that you may happen to slide into when you come back into the general part of the ski area and relates to lifts and and other equipment the each mountain has its own departments that handle the the. Maintenance and running of all of that. Beech mountain is just put in two lifts this year. So we're running to new four person lists to the top of the mountain sugar mountain put in a new lift that went into effect last year where they can take six people at one time. So, you know, the ski industry in North Carolina is is doing well. And you know, the the mountain.

"Wanted to bring you on because you know, as you look at the ski season to our west, and it is usually a very robust ski season. But every once in a while, you get these laws where you have higher temperatures. And we of course, have seen that right around the start of the new year here in Charlotte. So the the ski season started. Well, and then they they've they've kind of been in a lull. And now things are about to crank up again this weekend with some more snowfall in some really low temperatures, and I am actually looking at the sugar mountain website, and they're making snow this morning. So wanted to get you on because you are one of those guys who can give people maybe people who are new to the area or people who haven't considered going west to ski this time of year in a while give us kind of a lay of the land of what might be an opportunity for a mini vacation. Wow. What were you pegged it pretty much because of the audacious started the ski season they started in mid November. In fact, one of the resorts November eleventh they had the ski mountain open. So they had a wonderful first four weeks or so of the season. And then as you mentioned, the mild weather, rainy, weather, kind of slush. Yeah. Right now for our friends across the Carolinas, Tennessee and even Florida accesses the North Carolina mountains, western North Carolina ski slopes. Thanks, look. Good. It mainly is because the technology a lot of them have improved some of the. Lifts provide access to the tops of the mountains. But also from sugars opened up new trails in recent years. So with the cold weather last technology piece, if they had a snow making a lot of these resorts have purchased new snow blowers and snow makers and many of us. That's not the best thing to ski next to allow them into single digit evenings like they're about to have now and pained lows that they're about to have. Now, it allows them to build back that base that's been eroded by the warm, weather and rain, well, you have sugar mountain and beech mountain and then Appalachian, which is the oldest resort. And then you have some smaller ones like a Cadillac and wolf ridge and sapphire valley and North Carolina's got so many opportunities course, some people may want to get a little more sophisticated and in that case, you can go right up. I seventy seven I've done this. In fact in the last year. About three hours and change. And then write off Seventy-seven there's winter place in West Virginia. And West Virginia has got all kinds of opportunities. And we really are. It's a it's a kind of an embarrassment of riches in this area. If you wanna go skiing and do not travel, very far, and you don't have to, you know, get a plane ticket to go out west bend. Exactly, right. You can access those mountains that you mentioned really easily three hours. Many of them are banner elk central centered on. So if you're in one place, you can access a lot of a lot of those mountains, and of course, Appalachian is really close to Charlotte being. Located there in the blowing rock area. Yeah. I will note a few of them are closed. They're currently trying to build up their base. And that the sapphire Bali as we speak in wolf midge building up their base, they're making snow for reopening. So you can check.

And how many people want to head out and see a little bit of snow right now play in a little bit of snow ski or snowboard and then come back to warm, Charlotte. This just a few hours away at that. You don't have to go to the airport. You don't have to get on a plane. You don't have to travel days on end. It seems to be there. You can just go up to beach mountain resort. And that's where we're going to go right now here on the Carolina outdoors, our friend Talia Freeman. It's gonna join us and tell us a little bit about the newly opened for the twenty eighteen season beech mountain resort Talia. Welcome to the Carolina doors. Hey, thank you. Gotta be back. It's pretty pretty dang cold outside. You're right. But we've been making show now for almost seventy two hours. Oh, we've got a good solid window snow making we opened last Friday and. This is a special year for us. 'cause this summer we replaced two of our chairlifts. So we put into brand new quad lists. And a lotta upgrade. So we're we're pretty excited. We have a ribbon cutting the Saturday for love number five. Hey, so when a new lift goes in how what is the difference between a modern twenty-first-century lift? And what was there before are? They faster are they bigger or are. They just cushier heated seats on these lists, all they're definitely cushier. So lists five win. It was it was built around nineteen Eighty-four. So it was the first detachable quad list really in one of the first ones in the country. So it it definitely needed a facelift so we replaced with number five. Replace live number six number six is just a two seater list. So really didn't have a whole lot. Uphill capacity. And it was pretty slow we replaced. Both of those lists with two Doppelmayr fixed grip quads so it kind of put it in perspective with five had about fifty three chairs before which was quad left. And now has a hundred and forty four chairs let's six around seventy chairs before and now has about one hundred and fourteen chair. So it's a big improvement. All the chairs are posted seating back support. They've got foot rest. More than doubled our uphill capacity. So it's it's a pretty big deal and less number five. In addition to the changes that I mentioned we also have a loading conveyor with it. So letting essentially what some people deem as like a magic carpet. Conveyor belt that kind of moves people moves people onto the lift quicker. So helps kind of speed up the loading process. Hey, I've got visions of those old seats hanging in a tree making a wonderful swing. What'd you guys do with those? We actually sell them, and we still have several left, but a lot of people use them up here in area for just like what you said they make little porch swing out of them are using them as decoration. So you might have to learn about the details of that deal. I think that'd be kind of a neat thing to have in the backyard. Bill pretty cool. It's the outcome. Over in swing into a little bit too. So okay. Okay. Hey said the season is new and tell you. We are fortunate here at the Carolina outdoors in the outdoor gas from Jesse Brown's to get to talk to you throughout a ski season. And actually, we talked to you even even in the non ski seasons with the things going on during the summer spring, summer and fall it beech mountain. But now we are in ski and snowboard in those snow sports are upon us. But we're still early in the season. Does that mean the crowds are less than right now? And when we come up there, we can semi have the mountain to ourself. Absolutely. You know crowds are light in early December. We. Really not. So very many tickets today. So, but it's beautiful. I mean, it is natural snow that's trees or snow covered. The conditions are good right now. And it certainly not a big crowd out there. So it's a good time to visit for sure Don Yeager is our Carolina outdoor weatherman. So he was telling me about because I didn't even know I know that ashville and the mountains got some snow, but how does the natural snow mixed mixed with the stuff that the mountain is making at this time. I know it helps out a bunch. But does it fast forward the process for building up that base during a new season? It certainly does. And you know, if if conditions are right to make a good, you know, if we're getting natural powdery snow that means that we're we're able to pretty nice powdery snow. So, you know, we've we had single digit temperatures and really hardly any humidity. So we were able to really. Put down a nice product. And and get a lot of coverage. So they've been out there grooming, and we opened up the terrain park today. So you know, we're making good progress up. No, more terrain. Tell us about learning to ski for kids of all ages. Well, we've got a lot of programs for that..

"Outdoors. Bill bar got a little frosty. A couple mornings this week. Well, it's up down and all around seasonably cold gonna be seventy degrees starting off early December. Well, there you go says I it was twenty six now seventy little something for everybody. But I understand ski season's upon us. It is on some of our North Carolina mountain places. They're opening up. Of course, they got a little bit of a natural snow in western North Carolina. And that's a big treat. If you like to ski or just like to see some pretty snowflakes for a lot of people that was a surprise storm that rolled through. But anyway, we're going to talk to Talia Freeman from beech mountain resort. They're making snow. They have natural snow, and they are open for business. We're going to find out about what we have in store early season. And I think once they get a little natural snow up there solidified the base with some man made snow. It's a great time to go before the holiday season is truly in play. Because. You can get up there and not have to deal with all of the crowds that come as we get closer to Christmas and into January sounds like a great idea to me, Don, something I'm really excited about this week on the Carolina outdoors is we're going to go over to gastonia and talk to will Snyder. He is been the director of the planetarium over there for about a year or so, and we're gonna find out about our night or day sky. I'm surprised you're not up on that more. You didn't even know who are Orion was. I tell you what I know who he is. But at dinner fine. Actually, that's probably the only one I can identify and find those three stars that make up his belt every. So he is up there. So we're going to find out about that. But all that other stuff. I just can't remember them. I can see the Dipper out there. But what I really wanna see are some meteor showers. That's one of my favorites. I just got to be up early enough. On your pocket. Make a wish upon a star. Larry go that too. But anyway, we'll move in from the beach in move over to gastonia where the James h Lynn planetarium is the she'll museum of natural history in gastonia, he is energetic in entertaining, and educating and all of those things that you want in somebody that is presenting the celestial bodies stars planets galaxies. And we'll learn a little bit about how that changes with the advent of the new technology that is always coming in play. Of course, Don they just landed on Mars. Did you hear about that? They're going to replace the Hubble telescope all kinds of things going on up there in the sky. Well, anyway, will is helping follow all of that. And educating people of all ages, including us in all of our listeners here on the Carolina outdoors. So I'm totally excited about that. Another thing. It's been a hot topic for centuries really is man in women living with bears we've gone from having too many bears and then being passed a black bears where where they shouldn't be in bothering folks to almost not having any bears at all. In fact, in nineteen eighty we were down to two thousand Bayer's in North Carolina. Thank we've topped that out. Now now now. Got bears. Now, there's over twenty thousand of those things bear send him to Chicago. Well, there's plenty of them out there too. But those are wearing helmets and bumping into people. And there are a lot bigger. That's true. Yeah. They hit a eight hundred eighty pound bear harvested here in North Carolina. Coastal bear that was a coastal. Bayer but listen since seventeen seventy four I was reading for some pleasure. Reading naturalist William Bartrim's journal. About complaining about bears and big Tom Wilson who died in Asheville in nineteen eight his that guy's got a mountain named after him. He sure does his bitch away. Brag that he had killed a hundred and ten bears and all of that didn't even dent the numbers back then but starting in the nineteen twenties through development and deforestation began taking them they're told in the chestnut blight decimated the bears food supply by nineteen seventy they say, they were only fifteen hundred left in the state, and that's when they started doing sanctuary areas. That's when course in the eighties and nineties all of the development started across North Carolina. We know about that here in Charlotte. But it also took place. In coastal cities, and in a place called Asheville North Carolina, which houses about ninety thousand residents of ton of tourists are heading up there as well. The developments that took part in that are fantastic places for bears to live and those bears have gone from being cute cuddly, looking things we can video and in Canada cheer on and even people were fading in our feeding them, and that's turned into a bad thing here in twenty eight team because they aren't as cute and cuddly anymore. They're kind of getting on our nerves a little bit could be too many craft breweries up there. Maybe that's what's drawn them in the fine. Smell of beer brewing. That's what you're probably right. It draws bears. But it's also drawn a lot of people when the to mix sometimes I get on each other's nerves. Barrow drink a beer. Well, anyway, Bruce Anderson's gonna come on. He's written a lot of articles and done a lot of research on the bear situation across North Carolina. But specifically the bear city of Asheville. So we're going to talk to Bruce about about this conundrum that we are in. So stay tuned for more of that conundrum. Had you like that big word go were they outdoor gas from Jesse Brown's his name is Don Yeager mind is Bill Bartee each week. We come in and break down four segments for your listening. Pleasure..

"Nobody knows who the players are bums me out because I love watching the tournament and I like watching dukes on Kentucky's on or Carolina, Kansas and Gonzaga. I'm in February and March. I'm in and. But one of the things I've stopped doing is I no longer have any interest taking calls or debating college fans about their sleazy coaches is that one of the things I like about pro fans is that if you live in a pro town, you usually have multiple teams and so your life doesn't revolve around eighteen year olds. But for college fans, they're often from small towns that university is the centerpiece of the town, and people just have no self awareness or no sense of. How big they are and to watch Ohio State fans with urban Meyer and defend him. There's a reason they investigated him and there's a reason they suspended him. It's not because he was being truthful the entire time. There's a reason Rick Pitino got fired and art Brian's got fired, and it's not because the big bad media chased him out. Urban got suspended because urban wasn't honest with everybody, and I don't think Ohio State fans are worse. I'm seeing a lot of people in the media, Ohio State fans of the worst. No, not their college fans. Ohio State fans aren't worse than Baylor. They're not worse than Louisville. They're not worse than Penn State. They're the same. They're all the same because when you grow up in smaller towns. That one or two things mean more and when you grow up in bigger cities you have in LA. I got to NBA two and f. l. two major league baseball thirty-one music venues, beech mountain shopping to everything as I got. I got the Getty museum, ten minutes from my house. I got Malibu thirty minutes from my house. You got mountains. But when you grow up in a smaller community, the college is everything and I don't think high. AllState fans are worse than Baylor fans or Penn State fans or the same Ohio State rules the town, and people just sell their soul to defend obviously unethical behavior and lost and all the Ohio State stuff. I don't know anything about Courtney Smith Zack's myth. It was obviously a really bad relationship. Both of them sound like they've got major issues. I tend to always defend the woman in that situation because physically men have a history of violence against women. They are in. Relationships with. So I'm always going to defend the woman. But you know, you heard multiple stories about fifty times. She called nine one one and several times he wasn't in town, so I don't know what the hell happened. I'm not an investigative reporter, but I wouldn't say Ohio State fans are worse than anybody. They are college fans, and I, as I've been doing this for so many years, I'm just over debating with college fans. I'm just I'm not going to do it. I'm not going to do it on Twitter. I'm not gonna do it on Facebook. I'm not going to do. I'm not going to take calls. Louisville had a brothel fifteen feet from Rick Martinez office. He didn't know. Yes, some rogue assistant just ran a brothel, the bunny ranch down the row from his office and nobody gave them a heads up for ten years. You want me as college fans to believe the unbelievable that urban Meyer's wife had a text and they noticed ever talked about this thing now not interested, you lost me, but you didn't lose meal Hieaux state. It was a combination of Rick Pitino in Louisville and Ohio State, and Joe pause people. And I mean in Penn State wants me to believe in a tiny small town where the coaches vacation together where there's two good restaurants and they had the same coaching staffer, twenty years that one of the coaches saw incident with Jerry Sandusky and nobody talked about it. Really. Nobody went to Joe pond said, yeah, we got a creepy guy. We gotta get him out of the pro, never in twenty years. You know, how rumors spread I work in the media. You can't keep a secret down the hall for five minutes. Twenty years in a small town, they kept secrets. Nope. College fans want me to believe the unbelievable and I have no interest debating it..
