As a REALTOR, I am frequently asked the question these days: “How’s the real estate market?”REALTORs are in a precarious position when asked about the condition of our local real estate market. After all, REALTORs are salespeople. For the most part, REALTORs are paid on commission. REALTORs get paid for their work  only when they bring a buyer and seller together and “close the deal”.If the REALTOR is working for a Buyer, then there is plenty of home inventory to choose from at a great price, and loans are available at historically low interest rates. Lately the glass is more than half-full. It’s running over.Conversely, if a REALTOR represents a seller with a property listing who, despite market conditions cannot or will not lower the price of their property to sell it, then the glass ...

The Moonshine HighwayWallace Wenn             The making of moonshine, or unlicensed liquor distilled from corn, was a common business throughout the South, particularly during the tough years of the Great Depression.  It was a business that required little in the way of capital, and the production center needed only a bit of privacy and distance from centers of legal activity, otherwise known as police stations.  It was also a help if the neighbors could be trusted not to pry into matters of no concern to them.  The climate for such a business was perfect in the lonely, northern regions of mountainous Habersham County.              Of course, a product must be able to reach a market, so transport of the distilled moonshine became almost an art form, and gave birth to a major national s...

Obviously very old, yet very brilliant cliché, especially during this very scary Georgia drought condition.  It is truly amazing the magnitude of what will be impacted by this situation.  I am fortunate to be a part time guide/instructor at a North Georgia Outfitter, whose very livelihood is dependent upon rainfall.  On Monday and Tuesday of this week the Guide staff found themselves knee deep in the River rejoicing during the two day rainfall.  It reminded me of my childhood when I ran outdoors in my swim trunks and laughed while running through curb filled puddles.  It made the trout happy too as they became very aggressive at the new found food source pouring into the river.  Conditions are good there as water temps are perfect for the metabolism of the finned creature.  The River ro...
