Abstract:
Joe and Peggy Swicegood have operated Little Pigs BBQ in Asheville for over fifty years. It began as part of the Little Pigs BBQ of America franchises, but by 1967, the chain was bankrupt. However, Joe and Peggy just kept right on going with their restaurant. Generally barbecue was too hard to do in a fast-food restaurant. McDonald's had tried but soon switched to hamburgers. Joe and Peggy had have a successful run, for as Joe says, \"If the food is good, the slaw is tasty, the place is clean, and the people are treated right, they'll come back.\"

Abstract:
The Toe River Valley in Marshall and Yancey counties is a hotbed for the arts. The population of the two counties is around 30,000 and of that number it is estimated that more than 500 are artists--one of the highest concentrations of artists in the world. Markovich states there are two reasons for this--Harvey Littleton and the Penland School of Crafts at Spruce Pine. Littleton, who came to Spruce Pine in 1977, gained recognition first as a ceramist and later as a glassblower and sculptor in glass. Penland, founded in 1929 by Lucy Morgan, has gained world-wide recognition as a destination for artists.
