Hurrah! Glad to hear it-getting tired of writing people I don't know & telling them about the loss of my vacation money they will have to suffer if the falls are gone......

: It was a great feeling early this AM, sortin' the ole mail at the Post Office, seeing all the headlines of the local papers claiming, "State To Take Dupont Lands," etc. etc. An effort well worth it!!! I don't know how many of you actually participated, but know your efforts have been rewarded. I don't know how long this process will take, but if it's gonna be within the realm of possibility, The River Walk WILL be on the agenda for us come next June!

: From the Hendersonville paper,

: "The N.C. Council of State
: voted unanimously to use the
: state's power of eminent
: domain to force South
: Carolina developer Jim Anthony to sell the land he owns in
: the middle of the state forest. The move came after a
: 90-minute meeting in which Anthony defended his
: proposal to provide public access to the land, a plan state
: leaders denounced as inadequate. ...

: As early as today the state is expected to deposit a check
: for $12.5 million in Transylvania County Superior Court as
: a down payment on the land. The N.C. Clean Water
: Management Trust Fund, meeting Monday in Boone,
: approved the funds. Juries in Transylvania and Henderson
: counties will ultimately decide how much Anthony and
: other landowners are paid."

: Thanks to Friends of The Falls for making this happen!!!
