A WALKING EXAMPLE 6XEPLWWHGE\/RUL7ULWHO +D\OH\ VPRWKHU Written by: Christian Potts

Arthritis is more than a disease for the elderly. Ask Hayley Eaton. The 22 year old University of Oklahoma student looks like any other student you might see around campus. She even has a new passion for running, competing in events as long as half-marathons. And the battle she has had with arthritis since she was a toddler is like a marathon of its own. "You kind of want to deny it right at first. You don't want to admit you have a disability of

That all changed in a hurry about seven months later, when one morning she awoke to great pain.

We lived at the same location 2 years. John came regular to ask for food as long as we lived there up until we had prayed for salvation in God. John would answer "Yes I believe in and believe there is a God, a Hell and a Heaven but the way I've been treated by people has ruined my life and I don't think there is many Christians in this mean world and I know them Catholics is not Christians." I have wondered many times what did John know about the Catholic religion.

His sister who owned the corn crib where John slept is my aunt (Mandy Nichols Koons) and is one hundred years of age if she knows her age correctly. She never learned to read and write.

What many don’t realize is that during the busy summer season, blood donations often decline due to vacation and summer activities, while the need for blood remains constant. The American Red Cross is asking donors to “Cruise Into Summer” by donating blood or platelets. The campaign, which runs from April 1 to June 30, 2010, gives each person who presents to donate blood or platelets with the Red Cross an opportunity to enter a drawing for the chance to win a cruise for two. By donating early in the season, blood donors can donate two or more times during the summer months, helping ensure blood is available for patients throughout this critical time.

Please call 479-3694 or 4791331 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Walk-Ins Welcome! Appointments preferred. Every two seconds, someone in the United States needs blood. The Carolinas Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross provides lifesaving blood to 103 hospitals and must have 1,600 people give blood and platelets each weekday to meet patient needs. Blood can be safely donated every 56 days. Most healthy people age 17 and older, or 16 with parental consent, who weigh at least 110 pounds, are eligible to donate blood and platelets. Donors who are 18 and younger must also meet height and weight requirements.

She began to contract uveitis, an increase in eye pressure that didn't immediately affect her vision. For several years the uveitis was not the problem, the flare-ups of pain and swelling were. At age 18 though, the eye trouble became more of a problem. The pressure first was noticed in her right eye, causing her left eye to overcompensate. "The thing that was so odd is normally people with this will get a dramatic change, but for me it happened so gradually that my other eye overcompensated so we didn't realize it was going on," she said. Soon it became more serious. Several eye drops didn't work, her vision worsened and eventually her right eye began to develop cataracts. Two surgeries worked on the cataracts and the pressure itself, and continued use of special eye drops and many doctor visits have improved Eaton's condition. "Right now, knock on wood, everything is pretty stable," she said. "The average person gets an eye exam once a year, for a while there I was getting them

In the past two years the Harris Regional Hospital Auxiliary Thrift Shop Volunteers helped raise well over $300,000, enough for the donation, lifepack units for WestCare EMS and two brand new ambulances for WestCare EMS. There will be a reception this Thursday, April 29 at 11:00am at the Harris Regional Auxiliary Thrift Shop to cele-

brate the arrival of the ambulances. Everyone is invited to come out and celebrate this accomplishment which will benefit the citizens of Jackson County for many years to come. For more information on this event, email info@westcare.org or call 828-586-7432.

tial employees, reducing the total number through attrition, retirement, etc. There has been a lot of talk of cutting the budget back to 10 million. Can it be done and how? ------------- Most agreed that we should cut the budget, and that we could. Some suggested doing it over a period of years instead of a large cut all at one time. A couple of the candidates stressed hunting for more revenue. Raymond Williams pointed out that laying employees off wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily the answer. Anytime an employee is laid off, the county has to pay into the fund the amount the employee draws plus 10%. Considering the current funding, would you be in favor of no salary for commissioners other than the base salary? --------------- For the most part, incumbents and on-incumbents went along with the base salary plus any travel expenses incurred. The point was made that commissioners hardly made minimum wage for all the time expended. Others said that

5K event in 2008. Several months later she completed her first half-marathon(13.1 miles). While her next big running date is the half-running date at the Oklahoma City Memorial Marathon April 25, she has another big event on the schedule a week later. The fifth annual 2010 Norman Arthritis Walk will be May 1 at the Norman High School track at Harve Collins Stadium. Eaton, who has participated the last two years, was selected by the Arthritis Foundation to be this year's special honoree for the walk. "Her story is just one of those things where she's had it since she was a baby and hasn't let it overcome what she's wanted to do," said Amy Padilla, community development coordinator for the Arthritis Foundation's Oklahoma chapter. Eaton will be there to support the cause May 1, raising money and encouraging others. But don't be shocked if maybe she still is thinking a little about her training schedule for her future runs. "I'm not the fastest runner out there, but I'm happy to be accomplishing those races and grateful to God that I can do it," she said. "In the future I plan to train for and complete a marathon, and eventually a marathon in every state." Hayley is the daughter of Harvey and Lori Tritel of Mountain Creek in Robbinsville.

once every couple of months." Not Slowed Down Eaton is due to graduate from OU in May with a degree in English with plans to teach high school down the road. She started off wanting to go into meterology but decided it wasn't for her. But the weather bug did lead her to meet her future husband Robert Eaton while storm chasing. The two were married three years ago. "He's very supportive, he's been around for a lot of the eye trouble that's happened recently,"she said. "For my second surgery, he took me and he was more nervous than I was. At this point, I was just an old pro at this." She also has picked up her love of running from Eaton's family. It's not natural for someone with her condition, either. Any sort of fall from exercising that might produce a bump or bruise for most people could create much greater swelling and damage for a person with arthritis. The risk of injury or just the pain involved with moving around so much was not worth any sort of reward as a child for Eaton, so she hadn't been involved with any sort of sports until then. "I thought well, I'll start small, and did training for a 5K," she said. "It got me not afraid of exercising. It's been great." She said she almost cried at the starting line before her first

commissioners should be paid properly â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that the county didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need to feel obligated to any one of them. Graham County is the last county in the state without alcohol sales. Would you support legal sales? -------------- Most candidates strongly opposed; a couple wanted to consider the sale, and one approved the sale, saying that old folks wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to leave town to get it. Given the shortfall we have from TVA and Sales Tax, how do you plan to finance the county? ------------------ Some encouragement was given in that we have an ally in Raleigh who is working to get the TVA money split on a 50-50 basis rather than a 70-30 basis. Suggestions were to seek more funding, trim expenses, collect back due taxes listed in the newspaper. What do you think happened with the 06-07 audits that made it take so long and be so expensive? --------- Comments included hiring unqualified people and poor supervision and that the financial management should be kept in house.

NC to do more with less? Governor's budget focuses on jobs, education, ethics reform and safety while cutting $1 billion in spending By Frank Bradley Sentinel writer Like every other state in the Union, North Carolina is faced with some hard choices. Last week, Governor Beverly Perdue released her proposed state budget for fiscal year 2010-2011 reflecting almost a $1 billion cut in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spending, which she says is focused on programs proven to be unproductive, wasteful or in need of greater efficiencies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re investing in technology to ferret our fraud, waste and abuse,â&#x20AC;? she said during a telephonic press conference. Perdueâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget makes critical investments in four key areas: jobs and the economy, education, setting government straight and safer communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want make sure we come out of this recession with North Carolinaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s government fixed and with the ability to pay for its future,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year we were identified mentioned as one of the states with the worst economic difficulty; however, with the hard work of

the General Assembly, only eight months later we were identified as the best place to do business. We also retained our triple A rating, one of only seven states to do so.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;With this budget, we want to shore up and stimulate an economy for small businesses to stay here and to flourish,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This budget allocates $15 million as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Back to Workâ&#x20AC;? incentive fund that provides a direct rebate to small businesses that hire long-term unemployed workers. It also allows for a $250 per person credit for small businesses that provide health insurance for their workers as well as money for employee training. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With regard to education, I am proud to say that everybody has accepted our Ready, Set, Go program designed to increase our high school graduation rate and provide students with the skills and knowledge to succeed in college, at the universities or in the workplace. As for our teachers, this budget protects grades K through 3 from teacher loss; it provides for a salary

increase to keep North Carolina schools competitive. North Carolina is now in 31st in teacher pay just one notch above South Carolina. Also, this budget fully funds growth for universities and community colleges. It provides a $131 million flexible line for use by local school boards at their discretion. With regard to setting government straight, Perdue said she will be implementing a sophisticated system to detect fraud in Medicaid, which will save the state millions of dollars. It will also fund a legal team to prosecute these cases with the expectation of a four to one return on the dollars spent. Another innovation regarding Medicaid requires that patients use only one doctor and one pharmacy so they cannot do doctor shopping which will keep narcotics from being sold illegally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to do more with medical management in the Medicaid program ,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Or else it will take every new dollar we get for the program as

well as require us to take money from other programs.â&#x20AC;? She said her proposed budget restores a $40 million cut in mental health, will build local hospital capacity across the state and hopefully put mental health back on the road to recovery within 18 months. With regard to health and safety issues, the budget re-appropriates money for AIDS, funding to bring 8,100 new children into the health care system and promotes healthier lifestyle practices. It also provides a better communication system with new technology within the criminal justice system, including increased DNA testing. Governor Perdue said she hopes that the General Assembly will adopt most of the proposals of this budget and that it will prove to be less combative as all state government works together to look out for the future of the state by doing more with less.

who is listed in Albert Nichols family in Cades Cove families went and took soot on their faces hands and arms from a chimney and went to a widow womans house one night to have some fun and scared her retarded son. The widow womans name was Mildred Maynard(Harve's wife). She lived on Tabcat Creek 2 miles from Calderwood, TN. She was the grandmother of Lily Ann Hughes listed as a servant in families of Cades Cove (with Jake Roses family). When John B Cooper and Noah Williams entered Mrs. Maynards house they said to the retarded boy we are darkies-negros and went to see you little sambo dance and this scared the retarted boy bad. His brother got a shot gun and was trying to shoot John and Noah. They grabbed the gun barrel. The gun fired and shot a

hole thru the roof of the house. John and Noah was tryed in court for shooting in Mrs. Maynards house. Noah was ick with TB. John pleaded for Noah's release and ask the court to let him build Noah's time in prison and release Noah. The court granted Johns' request. Noah went home and died of TB a year or so later. Noah married my mother's sister Cornellia Dicey Nichols. Noah and Dicey are parents of Sally Mae Williams that married Russel Myres. Noah and Dicey are listed in the Albert Nichols Family of the families of Cades Cove 1900 Census. Dicey died shortly after Noah of TB also. Gardner Lee grandson of Albert Nichols is Noah and Dicey's son. He stays in Maryville. Sally Mae Williams Myers is a sister of Gardner L Williams. *To be continued next week.

Despite Stranded Conductor, the NC Symphony's Show Goes On RALEIGH, N.C.â&#x20AC;&#x201D;The effect of the volcanic eruption in Iceland that has canceled flights across Europe has made it across the Atlantic. No, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t look for ash in the North Carolina sky. The trouble is what has been grounded. North Carolina Symphony Music Director Grant Llewellyn, currently at home in Cardiff, Wales, will not arrive in time for several Symphony events this week. The show will go on. North Carolina Symphony Resident Conductor William Henry Curry will take the podium in Llewellynâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s place for the performance of â&#x20AC;&#x153;German Mastersâ&#x20AC;? at VanceGranville Community College Civic Center in Henderson, Tuesday, April 20, at 8:00 p.m. Curry will also conduct the Symphonyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s education concerts in Raleigh on Wednesday, April 21,

and Kill Devil Hills on Friday, April 23. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just one more indication of how interconnected and interdependent our world is today,â&#x20AC;? says North Carolina Symphony President and CEO David Chambless Worters. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With a music director with such a busy conducting calendar, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not hard to imagine how a travel disruption of this magnitude effects Grantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ability to be where he needs to be when he needs to be there.â&#x20AC;? Pending a change in weather, Llewellyn is expected to arrive in North Carolina on Friday, in time for engagements in Southern Pines, New Bern, and for the re-opening of the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh.

MADISON, Wis. -- People who are not aware they are developing mild memory problems as they age may develop Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease at a faster rate than those who do notice their memory is slipping. Studying the part of the brain that appraises and makes decisions could help predict who is at risk for rapidly advancing Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, according to a University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health researcher. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The disease is a significant public health concern with the number of cases rising dramatically,â&#x20AC;? says Michele Ries, a neuropsychologist and researcher at the UW Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Disease Research Center . According to the Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Association, 5.3 million Americans live with the disease. There will be half a million new cases this year alone. In Riesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; study, published by

the Journal of the International Neuropsychological Society, a group of people with MCI were compared to a group of healthy older adults. All were given a battery of neuropsychological tests and performed a series of tasks during functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). Ries found that the brainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cortical midline area showed activity during self-assessment exercises and that MCI participants with less insight into their impairment had considerably less brain activity than those who were aware of their mental difficulties. Ries says MCI is always a precursor to Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease, but people with MCI donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always develop Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anosognosia, or unawareness of function loss, is beginning to be recognized as an important clinical symptom of MCI, and with studies like this one, we are starting to under-

stand how these symptoms develop,â&#x20AC;? says Ries. Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease causes memory problems and also makes it difficult for patients to carry out basic activities of daily living, while MCI doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cause those kinds of problems. Ries says while there is some debate over whether there are memory difficulties that are associated with healthy aging, there is no clinical single tool that reliably distinguishes MCI from Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease. Ries says health providers should be educated about the potential Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease connection to anosognosia and the safety concerns over those who are not aware of progressing impairment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You build a life, relationships, wisdom and knowledge. And then to have Alzheimerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease take that all away in a gradual progressive fashion is a tragedy,â&#x20AC;? says Ries.

Legislative Update From Rep. Heath Shuler Strengthening Health Services for Our Veterans and their Families This week, I was proud to cast my vote in support of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Caregivers and Veterans Omnibus Health Services Act,â&#x20AC;? a bill that improves health services for our nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veterans and their families. The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed this legislation that increases support for wounded and female veterans, improves mental health care, and enables better access to health care for veterans who live in rural areas, like much of Western North Carolina. The brave men and women who serve our country deserve the best care and support we can offer, while in uniform and throughout their lives. I always strive to improve veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;

access to health care, and to supply our VA medical centers with sufficient resources to ensure they have the best available staff and equipment to treat Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s veterans. With the passage of this legislation, babies of female veterans will be cared for, for the first time in history, by the Veterans Administration. The bill provides health care and stipends for those who live with and provide care to severely injured veterans who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will help veterans in rural areas by strengthening grants offered to local Veterans Service Organizations to expand transportation services to local VA hospitals and clinics. This bill was passed by the Senate in November, also with unanimous support.

The American Legion, who supported this bill along with the Veterans of Foreign Wars, Disabled American Veterans, AMVETS, Paralyzed Veterans of America, the Wounded Warriors Project and the National Military Family Association, said this legislation â&#x20AC;&#x153;offers bold solutions to major challenges facing service members, veterans, and their families.â&#x20AC;? I firmly believe that veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; health care is a cost of war and a moral obligation. Our veterans deserve health care that is prompt, effective, and efficient. I will continue fighting in Congress to make certain that our veterans are receiving all the benefits they earned and are being cared for properly through the VA system.
