My suggestion for your "need for news"... Take a trip to downtown Main St. and go from shop to shop. Within a half hour you will find out everything that is going on in Blue Ridge. Everything from; weather, who's doing who, all the sermon topics from all churches, all the politics you can handle and if you don't find out what you really want to know... just ask. Everyone will tell you everything. Now don't you think this is much more fun than sitting in front of a TV?

Many local cable companies operate a local news channel for their customers. Biggest problems are finding enough business willing to advertise on the channel and customers willing to pay a dollar or two a month more to pay the operating costs.

ETC has a local news that covers blue ridge,so they say... It isnt "news" its gossip and it does have local happenings and events.. contact ETC in Blue Ridge behind arbys and they will hook u up... the only issue is that Cherie Martin the local ""personality" " has let it go to her head she thinks she is a star lol.. If u get the chance to meet her she walks around like she is star studded and acts like she is as impressive as Elvis lmao it is funny as hell to watch she is all about """her" "" and her family,her boyfriend,its just sickening to listen to but you have to to get the community calender for events and happenings... lol good luck to you!!!

Just what we need another local station with no talent news people giving the news about low lifes that get arrested: local sports games that people have seen several times; no talent local singers and music groups; locals sitting around talking about hunting or the Korean War; church services 12 of the 24 hours a day; traffic reports of cars going through the new McDonalds drive through; and worse yet local real estate agencies listing their houses for sale.

Dang I forgot the local weather:

Wet outside means it has rained or going to;
Snow, duh
Wind, duh
Thermometer on the porch, temp, duh. If you don't have one use that computer you have sitting there gathering dust and pull up The News Observer, they give the current temp in the upper left cornor.

If your that concerned about the local weather, well then go to weatherchannel.com and type in your zip code and it will give you the local weather. Better yet, tune your TV to channel 16 on ETC and they will give the local weather every 8 minutes. The weather in Jasper isn't much different from Blue Ridge.

Talent is in the eye of the beholder. Most of us who liove here like what we see and hear about our small community. It fills our needs for news and events pretty well. If what we have locally offends your sensibilities or isn't what you are used to from your former geographical location just tune it out. We won't mind a bit.
