Officials with a national conservation organization called the Conservation Fund have ensured the acquisition of 2,744 acres of land adjacent to Mount Mitchell State Park, allowing the 100 year old park to more than double in size.The park, which currently protects just under 2,000 acres, will now extend into the western slope of the Black Mountains, which contain some of the highest peaks in the East.“It’s not going to affect the character of the park initially,” park spokesperson Charlie Peek told the Charlotte Observer. “In the next 100 years, there will be a lot of people who will be very glad we had the foresight to do this.”The Conservation Fund acquired the acreage, which includes two separate tracts, at a price of $8.6 million and sold it back to the state for the significantly lower price of $3.2 million.One of the more notable peaks contained within the new purchase is Cattail Peak, which until now had been known as the tallest privately owned peak in the Appalachian chain.The expansion will also bring the Cane River, a well known trout stream, into the auspices of the park and allow visitors more access during snowy winter months.The expansion comes on the heels of another land acquisition on the Blue Ridge Parkway, which occurred in the Plott Balsam Mountains of Jackson County, North Carolina on Wednesday, August 17.Click here to learn more to learn more about this significant win for public lands in North Carolina.Related:

(AP Photo/Mark J. Terrill)ExpandANAHEIM – Felix Peña admitted it was “a little odd” when Manager Brad Ausmus approached him Sunday morning about pitching in relief that night against the Texas Rangers. A day earlier, Peña threw off the bullpen mound at Angel Stadium, part of his normal between-starts routine. He was planning to start Monday in Oakland.By the eighth inning, the Angels found themselves on the good end of a late rally. Their closer, Hansel Robles, was unavailable. So was Ty Buttrey, their top set-up man. Cam Bedrosian was down too. All the necessary dominoes had toppled.So it was that Ausmus inserted his Monday starter into an eighth-inning save situation Sunday afternoon. Peña recorded the first three outs, then handed the ball off to Justin Anderson in the ninth inning, finishing off a 7-6 win in unorthodox fashion.For a day, no one in the announced crowd of 39,406 had to squint to see the Angels’ sense of urgency. Heaney, who spent the season’s first two months on the injured list recovering from elbow inflammation, allowed two runs in five innings. He walked one batter and struck out eight.“I think I would’ve liked to have pitched a little bit deeper,” Heaney said. “A little bit more pitch-efficient. Sometimes that’s how it goes. Trying to keep them off the board. For the most part I made good pitches. It was one pitch really. Choo was the one mistake.”After Trout’s home run staked Heaney to a 1-0 lead in the first inning, Pence and Shin-Soo Choo hit solo home runs in the fourth inning to give Texas a 2-1 lead.Those were the Rangers’ only hits against Heaney in five innings. The left-hander needed 85 pitches to get through the Rangers’ lineup twice.Taylor Cole took over in the sixth inning and exacerbated an ugly trend, allowing three runs. Only two were earned; Rengifo overthrew first base on a routine ground ball to shortstop, allowing Elvis Andrus to reach second base with one out. The Rangers piled on with a double, a walk, and a pair of singles to take a 5-1 lead.In their nine home games, the Angels’ bullpen allowed 31 runs (29 earned) across 39 innings, a 6.69 ERA.On this day, the Rangers’ bullpen was no better.Down 5-1 in the seventh inning, the Angels sent 10 men to the plate. Six runs scored against three different pitchers.Ariel Jurado, the Rangers’ starter, allowed a one-out single to Fletcher on his 94th and final pitch. Right-hander Jeffrey Springs (2-1) took over and promptly allowed a double to Jared Walsh – his first extra-base hit in his fifth career game. With runners on second and third base, the rally began.Rengifo poked a single into right field, scoring Fletcher and Walsh to pull the Angels within 5-3. La Stella singled. Trout lined a double into left field, scoring Rengifo and sending La Stella to third base. The Angels trailed 5-4.Right-hander Kyle Dowdy relieved Springs and served up a sac fly to Shohei Ohtani, tying the game at 5. Kole Calhoun was intentionally walked to bring up Jonathan Lucroy, who faced the enviable task of standing and watching his teammates take the lead on back-to-back wild pitches.A curveball in the dirt eluded catcher Isiah Kiner-Falefa, allowing Trout to score from third base standing up. Calhoun scrambled from first to third, and the Angels took a 6-5 lead. The next pitch was a fastball that bounced off the backstop. Calhoun slid safely into home plate, giving the Angels a 7-5 lead. One batter later the inning ended, the rally complete.“When you’re a guy on third base, you want to score no matter where it is,” Trout said. “We had the sac fly from Ohtani and obviously me getting to third there, a couple passed balls. Kole was being aggressive. It was a close play. Just taking chances, having good at-bats, led to that big inning.”Both Peña and right-hander Cody Allen warmed up to pitch the eighth inning. Ausmus said that Allen, signed for $8.5 million to be the team’s closer, would have pitched if the Angels trailed. After the rally, it was Peña – whose 3.30 ERA was lowest among the team’s starters – who got the ball.The final innings were tense. Peña allowed a leadoff walk and had to survive a throwing error before retiring Rougned Odor, Asdrubal Cabrera and Danny Santana on strikeouts. Anderson allowed an RBI double to Choo in the ninth inning, struck out Pence on a slider, and walked Joey Gallo to put runners on first and third with two outs. The game ended when Nomar Mazara grounded into the shift. The gambit had worked.It was Anderson’s first save of the season.“That was awesome,” he said of the Angels’ second come-from-behind rally in as many days. “Those guys kept fighting, fighting and fighting, throwing up run after run after run. You get that momentum shift. It comes down to the bullpen. It comes down to us. Luis (Garcia) went out and shoved, and then Peña, then I was able to go out there, work around all of that, and just go out there and secure a win.”. “We’re gonna have to figure out the starting rotation moving forward a little bit,” Ausmus said, “but the only thing we can control is today’s game, and I felt like he could help us win the game once we got the lead.”Mike Trout hit his 12th home run as part of a 2-for-3 performance. David Fletcher went 3 for 4, and Tommy La Stella and Luis Rengifo each had two of the Angels’ 11 hits. Andrew Heaney pitched five strong innings in his 2019 debut, but it wasn’t until the Angels rallied for six runs against the Rangers’ bullpen that a win looked remotely possible.The Angels (24-28) picked up four wins on their nine-game homestand. They’ll open a three-city, eight-game road trip Monday against the streaking Oakland A’s, who have won 10 straight. How they navigate the next 27 innings is anyone’s guess.Peña said he expects to rejoin the rotation, but not for two or three days. Right-hander Trevor Cahill could start Monday on regular rest. He appears to be the most likely candidate on paper, but Ausmus wasn’t prepared to make that official after Sunday’s game.In any event, the Angels accomplished their immediate task: they won consecutive games feor the first time in a week.
