In Reply to: The River Walk NEEDS Your Help!! posted by Rich/Mohicanpress.com on April 06, 2000 at 05:03:36:
: Folks, if you've been to the waterfalls on Transylvania/Henderson County lines, in NC, during the last Mohican Gathering, or even if you've just seen the movie, you know the great beauty of that stretch of river ... what we affectionately term The River Walk.
: We received this e-mail last night from one who was instrumental in gaining us access to the property. The contents are pitiful, yet hopeful. PLEASE HELP!
: I enjoyed looking at your beautiful pictures of the Little River Falls on
: your website. Glad to hear that your outing at Sterling went well. I think
: that I helped one of you get in touch with Sterling management a few years
: Well, it has been a weird ride trying to get the State to buys those 3 falls
: you mention. We lost out to a private developer - and the State has been
: complaining that Sterling didn't give them a proper chance to match the
: developer's bid. Now it looks like the developer isn't going to protect the
: property the way he promised - with 150 homes of up to 3500ft2 each. So now
: the State has stated its intention to acquire the property through eminent
: domain. Hundreds of local people have joined in a letter writing campaign
: to support the State's effort.
: Learn more about the situation at:
: If you support this effort, you can encourage your mailing list or website
: viewers to send emails to the NC Council of State as listed on the above
: Thanks, ..."
: Let's do what we can to preserve this scenic area. Success means the area is open to all to enjoy forever!
I was bitterly disappointed to discover that we wouldn't be able to do this walk when you posted the news earlier this year - as this was one of the things I most wanted to do.
I have been to the site and wanted to post messages to the council but unfortunately they wouldn't send. Won't be giving up though - will keep trying and failing that- will send some strong letters via snail mail!!!
Let them hear the voice of the little people!! (not talking gnomes here either!)
