Graphic by Lori Deaton

Rainbow Community School would like to invite you to our Walk to School Day event. It will occur on Wednesday, Oct. 4, from 8:15 a.m. to 9 a.m. at 574 Haywood Road, Asheville.

There will be freebies provided by Active Routes to School for the youths who have decided to travel to school via walking/biking/hoverboarding/etc. There will be coffee provided by our new coffee shop, Summit Coffee Co., located in the River Arts District, for the adults who choose to travel in a similar fashion to school/work/breakfast.

Thanks for helping to make our streets safe for commuters both young and old! We’ll see you out on Haywood Road, Wednesday, Oct. 4. Come stop by!

— Mark Strazzer
Rainbow Community School Athletic Director


Thanks for reading through to the end…

We share your inclination to get the whole story. For the past 25 years, Xpress has been committed to in-depth, balanced reporting about the greater Asheville area. We want everyone to have access to our stories. That’s a big part of why we've never charged for the paper or put up a paywall.

We’re pretty sure that you know journalism faces big challenges these days. Advertising no longer pays the whole cost. Media outlets around the country are asking their readers to chip in. Xpress needs help, too. We hope you’ll consider signing up to be a member of Xpress. For as little as $5 a month — the cost of a craft beer or kombucha — you can help keep local journalism strong. It only takes a moment.

      Gather round, kids. Settle down now. And no hitting. I’m going to tell you a story about the way that fogyism, as a social philosophy, is demented. I’m going to give it to you straight: Mr. Deplorable Infidel has gotten carried away with providing financial support to backwards banana republics and their shambolic dictators. It’s pretty clear from this lack of restraint that he would emphasize the negative in our lives instead of accentuating the positive, all at the drop of a hat. It’s therefore imperative that we think outside the box, as doing so will let Mr. Infidel know that some people doubt that letting his disciples obliterate our sense of identity is like letting the inmates run the asylum. Sadly, I can’t seem to convince such people otherwise. Regardless, let’s move on. Let me close by reminding you that I understand the responsibility of lighting the torch of human rights, and I will never let you down.
