Part I: The following story was written by Fred E. Nichols whos mother was Margaret Lewesa Cooper. John and his sister Maggie were the illigimate children of Sally Cooper before she married Albert Nathan Nichols. The daddy of Margaret was William Deal (Dale) who may have been John's also. JOHN B COOPER The Bible tells of men who dwelt in caves and dens, deserts and mountains. Their clothes were sheep and goat skins. They were driven out of civilization because of their religious beliefs. These were great men of God. They suffered cruel mockings and scourgins, was destitute of food, afflicted and stoned by persecution. They all obtained a good report and confessed they were pilgrims and strangers on earth. They held unto the faith that was once delivered unto the saints and were not like the people of this period who say they cannot be a christian because of their family uprising and meaness. These people who say this is walking under the spotlight of satan. He holds the

light on on the broad way that leads to destruction where Chrits said many would walk therein. When the commuist gets control over America people who serve God will haft to hide out or either keep their mouths closed to religious conversations. Then when the great tribulation sets in they will haft to take refuge in the mountains if they survive and live from nuts, berries and what ever they can capture unless they be willing to denie Christ and worship the beast. A man named John Cooper who existed and died in Blount County TN was a brother to my mother. He lived on nuts, berries, apples, wild grapes and wild salads over fourty years except some food give him at times. I knew John from my childhood up till his death in the fourties. When John was a young man he was sentenced to Brushy Mountain Pententiary in TN and spent several years digging coal in the mines. A task was assigned to each prisoner. If the prisoner did not dig his daily task or tons of coal that night the warden and guards whipped the prisioner in a horrible way. *Watch in next week's issue for the next part of this story.
The Graham County Board of Commissioners has unanimously voted to ask the North Carolina Department of Revenue to conduct an Audit of the mechanism employed by the State of distribute Federal PILT payments to counties in the Tennessee Valley Authority region. This issue arose last week when the Commissioners obtained a copy of a "Fiscal Note" prepared by the North Carolina General Assembly Fiscal Research Division indicating that, as a result of legislation sponsored by Representative Phil Harie, and passed in August 2009, the State would alter the method in which PILT payments were calculated and
Fiscal Note, Graham County stood to loose money under the revised calcuation method, while Swain and Cherokee counties would gain funding. "We were stunned by the projections made by the Fiscal Research Division. Graham County Commissioners did not see a copy of the Fiscal Note until last week," said Commissioner Smith. "In fact, the only time that the Commissioners heard about this legislation was in May of 2009, when we were told by our former tax assessor that it would likely increase the amount of PILT payments that Graham County would recieve. We did not know that the legislation ultimately
was projecting a cut in funding to Graham County. The Board never took a position supporting the legislation and, if it had known of the Fiscal Note projections, it would have strongly opposed passage of the Bill," Commissioner Smith added. The statutory changes took effect on October 1,2009. Since that time, however, the amount of PILT payments recieved by Graham County has not been cut to the extent forecast in the Fiscal Note but, rather, when calculated on an annual basis, they have remained somewhat consistent with previous
Oil Addiction: Gas Price Spikes Threaten Americans' Wallets New Analysis Shows States Most Dependent Upon Oil for Transportation Would Be Hardest Hit by Price Shocks 10 most vulnerable states: Mississippi, Montana, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Kentucky, Texas Maine, Georgia and Idaho; 10 least vulnerable states: Florida, Washington, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Colorado, New Hampshire, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York and Connecticut North Carolina (March 17, 2010) â€“ As many energy experts
are predicting that gas prices will rise nationally to more than $3 per gallon this spring, a new study shows the heavy toll these spikes would have on Americansâ€™ wallets. The economic white paper, â€œRanking States Oil Vulnerability: Assessing the Continued Threat of Gas Price Spikes,â€? examines the impact of a gas price spike similar to the summer of 2008 in states across the country. North Carolina ranks as the 19th most vulnerable of the states. If gas prices were to spike this
year like they did in 2008, the percent of familiesâ€™ income spent on gas would jump from 4.1 percent to 7.19 percent in North Carolina. The data reveals that drivers in all states are dependent on oil for their transportation needs, but some states are more vulnerable to oil price increases than others. Drivers in the most vulnerable states will be particularly hard hit in the event of another spike in the price of gasoline, which is

Oil Addiction Continued from page 1A
one of the economic risks Americans face due to the country’s dependence on oil. “Our ongoing oil addiction is draining our wallets and our economy, and rising gas prices will only add to this burden,” said Deron Lovaas, transportation expert at the Natural Resources Defense Council. “That’s why we need to move forward with clean energy and climate solutions that will not only strengthen our national security and our environment, but will also help revitalize our economy.” Even without an oil price shock, there is a major gulf between the nation’s 10 most vulnerable states and the 10 least vulnerable. The 10 most vulnerable states are (from most to least): Mississippi (most vulnerable), Montana, Louisiana, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Maine, Georgia and Idaho. The 10 least vulnerable states are (from most to least): Florida, Washington, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Colorado, New Hampshire, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, and Connecticut (least vulnerable). (See the full report with a complete list of states’ data: http://docs.nrdc.org/energy/files/ ene_10031601a.pdf.) “The impacts of gasoline prices in the midst of a struggling economy make it clear that our country needs to reduce its dependence on oil,” said Elizabeth Hogan, analyst at David Gardiner and Associates and the co-author of the report. “By promoting more efficient vehicles, clean fuels, smart growth, and public transportation, our government can put an end to our unhealthy
addiction that pinches our wallets and threatens our national security and the environment. “ In order to cut America’s dependence on oil and help reduce the risk of oil and gas price spikes, the report recommends the following policies for the U.S. Congress: Pass comprehensive climate and energy legislation that limits carbon dioxide emissions, helps us break our oil addiction, and helps create millions of clean energy jobs here in the United States; and Fundamentally reform federal transportation policy to support smart, transit-oriented development; assist states and regions in saving oil; and provide ample funding for energy-efficient transportation alternatives including rail and bus lines, bike paths, sidewalks, and other alternatives to driving.

With Mike Barres
Who Trains Who We were sitting in the living room on our couch. It was in the evening and we were watching television. The dog went to the door, wanting to go out. I said, â€œYou sure do have her trained.â€? I was talking to the dog, not my wife. Our dog would do that over and over again. Each time my wife would get up and let her out, only to hear a scratch at the door a few minutes later, and go let her in. My wife is a dog lover, and she really didnâ€™t mind, but it made me think â€œWho trains who?â€? From a very young age children know how to get what they want. Children will cry, or throw temper tantrums, or whine or beg. They know how to get the desired response out of their parents. Teenagers learn how to put their parents on guilt trips. Family members can pull on our heart strings. Sometimes bosses compliment an insecure person, to get them to do what they want them to. All of this is subtle, or not so subtle manipulation. Others might call it a â€œspirit of control.â€? I have heard Bible teachers call it a â€œspirit of Jezebel,â€? See I Kings Chapter 21. Letâ€™s look at this issue from both sides. If you are being controlled or manipulated, recognize it. Proverbs 4:23 says, â€œKeep your heart with all diligence, For out of it spring the issues of life.â€? If we arenâ€™t careful we will become resentful and bitter by those who control and manipulate us. If we donâ€™t stop them, however, it is our own fault. We are actually allowing them to train us, to give them what they want. Hebrews 12:15 says to not let, â€œany root of bitterness springing up cause trouble.â€? We must speak the truth in love to prevent being controlled and manipulated. Ephesians 4:25-27 says, â€œTherefore, putting away lying, â€˜Let each one of you speak truth
with his neighbor,â€™ for we are members of one another. â€˜Be angry, and do not sinâ€™: do not let the sun go down on your wrath, nor give place to the devil.â€? If you are the one doing the controlling or manipulating, it would be good for you to change over to sincere asking instead, and a willingness to take no for an answer. Manipulating and control is a lot like witchcraft and it is very self centered. Encyclopedia
Britannica online defines witchcraft as â€œthe exercise or invocation of alleged supernatural powers to control people or events.â€? Philippians 2:3,4 says, â€œLet nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.â€?

Letter to Editor
Letter to the editor: The 2010 Census is more than just a survey. Itâ€™s absolutely critical to deciding how to fund our schools, where to build new hospitals, roads and businesses, and how North Carolinians are represented in all levels of government. In fact, for every North Carolinian who goes uncounted,
North Carolina loses more than $1,500 each year. Every dollar and every Census form counts, especially in these tough times. In North Carolina we should receive our 2010 Census forms by March 22. It only takes about 10 minutes to complete the 10 questions, and your personal information will not be shared with any government agency,
business or individual. My husband, Bob Eaves, and I will fill out the Census form and return it, and Iâ€™m asking everyone across the state to do the same. Itâ€™s easy, itâ€™s important and itâ€™s secure. The future of every community in North Carolina depends on it. Gov. Bev Perdue
Dear Editor: Because of a number of misunderstandings concerning funding for the Heritage Festival, maybe I can share the rest of the story. Perhaps we need to start at the beginning. In the spring of 2009, Bob Doyle decided to step down and all his board with him. Before their resignations were effective, there was a meeting at the Microtel, with a final effort being made to find a new board of directors. It appeared, after running ads in the newspaper for people willing to take on the festival that it was doomed. Eventually, five of us agreed to serve on the board and were duly elected by that board before they resigned. The current board members are Jack Brooms, Judy Jones, Bobby Smith, Bruce Snyder, and Lavina West. When Bob Doyle turned everything over to this board, there was $4265 in the bank. Iâ€™m fairly certain the county had been contributing to the festival in the past, but I donâ€™t know how much. When the budget was made for 20092010, $5,000 was included for the festival, and that $5,000 was transferred to the Festival immediately after July 1, 2009. Since almost all the funds are needed before and during the festival, we requested payment as soon as the new fiscal year started. Thus, Graham County had
already given their budgeted $5,000 for the current fiscal year. The $2500 they have now agreed to pay before June 30 is in addition to the $5,000 originally budgeted. Even with the $1,000 cut from T&T Funds, the Festival is still ahead by $1,500. I think back to the marvelous celebration we had in 1972, and for years preceding and following the Centennial, and I am saddened. Virtually nobody was paid, except for the one who kept the Centennial office open for many weeks. But times have changed. So many of the folks participating in the festival are paid for their services. In those days, it was an opportunity for folks to get together and enjoy whatever program was going on at the time. I grant you that some of these fellows need to be paid. It just seems in light of the economy, of the reduction in funds we expected from the state, etc., that perhaps we should rethink many of the things for which our tax money is spent, or to come up with some alternatives for securing some of the funds. Different taxpayers have different ideas as to the best and wisest use of our tax money. When we come to ask for tax dollars, we need to remember that the next person has a different idea about how the money should be spent. Donâ€™t misunderstand me; I would not be giving my
time to help make the festival a success if I didnâ€™t think it was a good thing for the community. Neither would I be giving many hours toward a museum for Graham County if I didnâ€™t think it was also important to the county. In truth, most of the community projects in which I have been involved were never meant to be a burden on the taxpayers. When we spent many hours and a good bit of our money on the food bank, we never intended that to be a taxpayerâ€™s burden. In the beginning of our work on the museum we werenâ€™t aiming for the county to have to pay the price. We began working through a non-profit, and then found that as a non-profit weâ€™d have to pay â€œcomparable rent,â€? but the county would only have to pay a minimal fee. Consequently, we came back to them to actually lease the property, but somewhere in between, the up-front estimate for the repairs more than doubled. Raising the needed funds was more than our non-profit could accomplish in the FS timeframe. Now, as you know, because of the financial situation, our commissioners decided not to set aside the funds for the required repairs. Subsequently, the building will soon be demolished and we are still searching for a home for the museum. Lavina West
Last night, the House of Representatives passed the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act by a narrow margin. The bill, H.R. 3590, is expected to be signed into law by the President at which point the reconciliation package will be sent to the Senate for consideration. If the Senate passes the reconciliation passage by a simple majority with no changes, it will be presented to the President for consideration. Since the commencement of the health care debate, many of you have shared your views with me. I have received tens of thousands of letters, phone calls and emails from you and I have met with countless others, including patients, doctors, hospital administrators, home health providers, free clinic workers, children, nurses, economists and small business owners. Through this process it has become clear to me that the majority of you are supportive of health care reform, but you do not think that this bill is the right solution. I voted against the bill because I felt that we could do better. Now that it has passed and will become law, I look forward to working with my colleagues to address specific areas that need improvement. I assure you that I will continue to work as hard as I can to fix our nationâ€™s health care system in a fiscally responsible and compassionate way. Certain aspects of this bill are beneficial and necessary. I support eliminating the authority insurance companies currently have to cancel coverage when an individual falls ill or to exclude altogether those with preexisting conditions. I also support the measure that allows young adults to remain on their parentsâ€™ insurance until the age of 26. While I support some provisions, I am concerned about how other parts of this bill will affect
families, small businesses and our economy. One of the most significant cost savings of this legislation is a colossal $500 billion in cuts to Medicare, which millions of seniors across the country and 147,000 seniors in Western North Carolina rely upon for their health care coverage. If there is a half-a-trillion dollars worth of savings to be found in Medicare, we should utilize it to stabilize this already insolvent program rather than to create a new entitlement that will certainly face the same sustainability challenges. I cannot in good conscience vote to expand current entitlements or create new ones without ensuring that the proper mechanisms are in place to meet our current obligations of $38 trillion in Medicare benefits over the next 75 years. This legislation also places a sizable burden on our small businesses through mandates that will require small businesses to purchase health insurance for their employees or face fines of up to $2,000 per employee. Furthermore, much of the $500 billion in new taxes created to pay for this bill will be put on the backs of our nationâ€™s already-struggling small business owners. This bill should have done more to rein in the insurance industry. It does not do enough to prevent rate hikes and permits insurance companies to evade competition through the same anti-trust exemptions that they enjoy today. Additionally, because the legislation guarantees that millions more consumers will have to buy insurance, we are literally pumping money into the very companies that have helped create the problems we are trying to solve, while getting little in return. To truly reduce our spending on health care we must target reform toward the root cause of the skyrocketing costs. This legislation fails to address the reality of what creates cost â€“ sickness. This
legislation does not do enough to promote accountable care, the idea that health care providers should be rewarded for keeping patients healthy and out of the doctorâ€™s office. This bill fails to address the way that we provide health care in this country; it merely adds more people to a broken, inefficient, and wasteful system. In Washington, this debate has become more about winning or losing a political battle than promoting sound and effective policy. Last year, a number of Republican lawmakers made their intentions clear with the statement, â€œIf weâ€™re able to stop Obama on this, it will be his Waterloo. It will break him.â€? I find this politically motivated, obstructionist position offensive and detrimental to Americaâ€™s future. I also believe that the Democrats would have been better served by enacting common-sense incremental change rather than pushing through a huge bill that mushroomed into something flawed and unwieldy. The belief that we have a moral obligation to help those who are less fortunate encapsulates why I am a Democrat, however itâ€™s time that we start working together and put America above our political party affiliations. This was a very difficult decision, but in the end I could not support this legislation as it currently is written. I evaluated all available information, listened to the people of Western North Carolina, and prayed about this vote. I know that many of you disagree with my decision, but I did what I believe was right for Western North Carolina and our country. As your Congressman, you can always be confident in my unwavering commitment to our community and this great nation. I remain committed to finding solutions to our broken system and will continue to do so for as long as I represent you in the U.S. House of Representatives.
tem, in turn, could unfairly reduce the amount of PILT payments distributed to Graham County while artificially inflating the amounts sent to other Counties.
points out that the 2009 legislation used different phrases in two seperate sections of the North Carolina General Statutes. In one section, the State is directed to use the local government's percentage of the "total value" of the TVA property in calculating distributions to local governments while, in the other, the TVA's valuation is the basis. This difference migh adversely affect Graham County in that, when the total value of the Dam and related facilities is used, rather than the TVA's valuation, Graham County might recieve a higher percentage of the Federal PILT payments.

years' allocations. There is concer, however, that under the methodology adopted by the General Assembly in the 2009 legislation, State Officials might cut the amount provided to Graham County in the final five months of the current fiscal year, while increasing the amount sent to some adjoining counties. "The Board believes that this is wrong, for several reasons", said Commissioner Snyder. "The legislation passed last year changes the calculation mehtod used by the State from one based on the percentage of loss of taxes to each local government to one based upon each local government's percentage of the total value of TVA property in the State. In implementing the new approach, however, it appears that the State is using the 1930's appraised value of the TVA facilities in Graham County rather than the current fair market value, while the values assigned to TVA venues in some other counties are based upon more recent appraisals," said Commissioner Odom. This sys-
The Commissioners are also challenging the calcuation used by the State in determining how much of the property associated with Fontana Dam is located in Graham County, as opposed to Swain County. "I do believe that the State is accurately recognized the lines dividing Graham from Swain counties," said Commissioner Trull. "In my opion, they are placing much more of the Fontana Dam and related facilities in Swain County than should be there," Commissioner Trull added. The request by Graham County to the Department of Revenue asks that the Department audit the calculation method currently in use and determine whether the proper percentage of the TVA facilities are being placed in Graham County and, as a result, whether the County is getting the correct distribution percentage. In so doing, it
Moreover, the County is contacting every member of the North Carolina General Assembly and asking that the 2009 legislation be repealed and, further asking Congressman Shuler and Senators Burr and Hagan to address the PILT payment issues in Congress. Letters to this effect are being sent this week.

National Healthcare Decisions Day April 16th SYLVA â€“ Harris Regional Hospital is participating in National Healthcare Decisions Day, a free initiative 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Friday, April 16th to encourage everyone to complete advance directives regarding
healthcare decisions. Cake and punch will be served at noon in the front lobby of Harris Regional Hospital to celebrate the day. Copies of the â€œFive Wishesâ€? living will are cur-
rently available at Harris Regional Hospital, Swain County Hospital and WestCare Medical Park of Franklin. Everyone is invited to pick up the â€œFive Wishesâ€? living will now and discuss their advance directives with
family members. On National Healthcare Decisions Day, WestCare Health Systemâ€™s chaplain and experts from nursing and palliative care will be available to answer any questions about advance directives. A
notary public will be available to notarize the living will document â€œFive Wishesâ€? at no charge. Copies of â€œFive Wishesâ€? and an informational phone number 586-7748 are available at WestCare Health
System year round. Harris Regional Hospital offers information on living wills throughout the year, on the first Friday of every month.
