Asheville Items

Since it remains unclear how long the system will limp along before crashing from oil starvation, it is good that communities like Asheville are engaging in positive action with results. It is also great practice for a community that will evolve a healthy tribal network post-capitalism.

Blog Asheville tells us that local activists have stopped a new Walmart infection:

Just as the forces were gathering to battle it out at Ashvegas City Council tonight, Wal-Mart has announced that it's not going to pursue siting a Wal-Mart Supercenter on Smoky Park Highway next to the Lowes' there.

Also from BA, we have a link to freep a poll on support for the Dem. (Schuller) candidate working to unseat the Republican (Taylor) incumbent in the local Congressional race. Scroll down this page and vote!
