A never-ending smile must be difficult to maintain.
Not to mention a hand held in a perpetual wave.
Brevard is the county seat of Transylvania County. Last week's District Court session included an appearance by "Uncle Buck," charged with selling non-tax-paid alcohol (called moonshine, or 'shine around these parts). Some of the charges against Uncle Buck were dismissed. He pleaded guilty to three counts of posessing and selling non-tax-paid alcohol, possession of drug paraphernalia and simple possession of marijuana.
The judge ordered a suspended sentence of thirty days and Uncle Buck was ordered to serve unsupervised probation for a year. Most of the citizens of our county breathed a sigh of relief. Hardly anyone wanted the judge to be harsh with Uncle Buck. We are happy to see him carving his bears with a chain saw and chatting with people who drop by his place.
One of Uncle Buck's bears provides a welcome sign to visitors.
