Tuck Reader

Rob et al.--Just wanted to mention the Tuck Reader, an Internet publication of fairly recent vintage which is doing some interesting and innovative things in covering the Tuckasegee River drainage from Cashiers to the southwesternmost parts of Swain County.  It's a novel concept with two talented guys toting the load.  I'm pleased to be writing a weekly column, "Mountain Musings," and I love the idea they've pretty much given me free rein.
