Made the following comments: I am interested in finding, delineating, and promoting the Eastern Continental Divide and it seems that it may traverse this area. It begins in Key West FL and goes through GA, NC, VA on up into NY, then west through OH, IN, IL, WI, and ends in Hibbard MN. I would like to promote it primarily on the Internet, and by encouraging delineation on maps and with highway signs, similar to what is already being done in NC. I would also like to pull together on the Internet people in the various towns, cities and rural communities on or near the Eastern Continental Divide.

Made the following comments: All webb visitors come on up to Avery County. A great place to live. We have had a house here for about 14 years and owned land for over 26 years. We are in our second home within that time. If fact, we have a small house for sale.We are not too far from one of the places almost destroyed by the floods recently. Our people are tough. Pray for all of the flood families, as well as all of the workers assisting them.

Made the following comments: I have been in the area several times and have always been impressed with the beauty of your area of the state. By the way I am a retired DVM, and I visited your fine Humane Society shelter there. It is without a question one of the best, cleanest, well care for facilities I have seen anywhere. The people that run it must be the best, and we congratulate them

Made the following comments: I was pleased to see your Web site on what is one of the most beautiful and fascinating parts of the eastern U.S. Hope to see more historical content on the communities in the county. I am particularly interested in any information about Cranberry and the Cranberry Mining Company. My great-great grandfather was a foreman with this company and I'm trying to research his role in the community affairs of Cranberry (circa 1870s).
