Written by 

art fundraiserDonations for people affected by a November fire in Cullowhee will be collected at Western Carolina University’s men’s basketball game at 7 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 23, at the Ramsey Regional Activity Center.

The funds will help those employees who lost their jobs at three Cullowhee businesses forced to close after a Nov. 21 fire damaged the building that housed the businesses. The three businesses, Subway of Cullowhee, Rolling Stone Burrito and the Mad Batter Bakery and Café, employed more than two dozen people collectively. No one was injured in the fire. Volunteers from WCU’s Center for Service Learning in partnership with Cullowhee United Methodist Church will collect cash and check donations before and during the first half of WCU’s game against Davidson. Doors open at 6 p.m., with tipoff at 7 p.m. Donations collected at the game will be dispersed by Cullowhee United Methodist Church to assist people who lost their jobs as a result of the fire.

For those who wish to give but cannot attend the basketball game, donations will be accepted by the WCU Wesley Foundation at CUMC through Thursday, Jan. 30. To make a donation via PayPal, go to www.wcuwesley.com, click “donate” and put “Cullowhee Fire” in the message section. To donate by mail, send a check with “Cullowhee Fire” in the memo line to CUMC, P.O. Box, 1267, Cullowhee, N.C. 28723.

    art theplaceClaire Lynch likes to blur lines.

    Born and raised in Upstate New York, she eventually moved away, crossing the Mason-Dixon Line for Alabama at age 12. She carried in her mind the sounds of the 1960s folk scene of Greenwich Village in Manhattan and show tunes echoing from the record player in her childhood home. Soon, she’d cross paths down South with country and bluegrass melodies radiating from Nashville and beyond.
