I know with the election over, you’re probably going through political withdrawal and waxing nostalgic for all the hoopla and drama.  No?  Well, just in case you need a little taste, I finally posted some photos from the DNC in Charlotte which you can see here.

Thanks for looking!  And hope you had a very happy thanksgiving.

High Steppin’ project

Posted in Uncategorized by erinbrethauer on November 24, 2012


Every year I’ve worked at the paper, I’ve covered the annual Holiday Parade in downtown Asheville and each year, I find myself following this one group- the Hillcrest High Steppin’ Majorettes and Drum Corp.

They have this energy that is captivating and exciting and the people they pass on the parade route react to that energy.  They jump up and dance, yelling to their friends in the group.  The high steppers usually have police officers escorting them through the parade route because a big entourage of fans and parents start following them.

So in preparation for this year’s parade, I decided to do a project on the group.  I went to their practices and took notes, video and pictures and after a week of editing, the story was published last Saturday in the Citizen-Times.

You can read the article here.

See photos and video on my updated website here.

Or visit the project page on the newspaper’s website here.

I hope you’ll check it out.
