Our View: Heralds of spring
Thumbs-up: to the opening of trout season -- is there any more fitting herald of spring in the High Country? Kudos, also, to Blowing Rock's annual trout derby last weekend drawing dozens of fishermen and children to opening day.
Thumbs-up: to voter registration. It's your right and responsibility to cast a ballot, but 5 p.m. today is the last day to register to vote in the May 6 primary. For more information, visit the Watauga County Elections Office at 842 W. King St. in Boone.
