    Abstract:
    The Asheville Federal Building, once known as the Grove Arcade Building, is home to the Environmental Data Service, a division of the Environmental Science Services Administration, or ESSA, which is itself a division of the United States Department of Commerce. The Environmental Data Service, or EDS, provides answers to environmental questions submitted by individuals or groups. The EDS also issues publications dealing with climatology in an effort to reduce their work load by anticipating some of the questions that may be asked throughout the year. A staff of approximately 600 people uses several computers, data punch cards, microfilm and magnetic tape, and millions of sheets of typed, printed, and handwritten information to answer submitted questions. The sheets of handwritten information alone are filed on ten miles of shelving.

  • 3. One Last Word by Norris, Jeannie Faris
     
    Abstract:
    On June 28, 1969, Spivey's Corner held its First Annual National Hollerin' Contest. The idea initially came from an on-air discussion between Spivey's Corner resident Ermon Godwin Jr. and two Dunn radio men regarding the origins and purpose of hollerin'. A suggestion was made that a contest be held and Godwin contacted friends in media from all over the country who ran stories of interest on local news programs. Major networks and news outlets, including CBS, NBC, and Time Magazine, picked up the story, sending reporters and camera crews to Spivey's Corner to cover the event. Dewey Jackson, of Roseboro, was declared the winner of the first contest, resulting in a deluge of television, radio, and print interview offers, including an opportunity to appear on the national television show \"To Tell the Truth.\"
