    A lot of good things happening here. This paper just moved into a brand-new building, if I'm not mistaken, and former Spartanburg (S.C.) Herald-Journal sports editor Burke Noel is the ME there.

    Just a so-so town, in my opinion, but it's in the middle of an absolutely beautiful area. Brevard is a fantastic town a few miles down the road one way, and Asheville is my favorite place east of the Mississippi.

    If you're into outdoors activities -- hiking, fishing, hunting, kayaking -- you could do a lot worse than this.

    Burke Noel is the ME in Hendersonville. Dean Hensley, the SE, is good people. If I was 20 years younger, I'd jump on this.
