I thought I would just repost some things for folks to read......

Deaths on the job up 31% in NC in just this year of 2009. Original article by the News Observer 1/10/2009.
5/2009 A Duke university master steamfitter was killed by a stream line rupture.Same news reporter.
4/2009 a person fell from a cellular tower. Same news.
6/19/2009...the ConAgra explosion...seems to have been caused by a contractor venting natural gas into the building. AP
17 hrs ago....Great Smoky Mountain National Park to cull 500 wild hogs....then in the winter ...more.WBIR.com
The saddest of all....NC remembering victims of sterilization program...Raleigh,NC AP writer.
More than 7,600 people went thru this against their will.It was called the eugenics program from 1933 to 1973.....1973 would put its end just 36 years ago. The NC House panel wanted the state to pay $20,000 to the victims that are still alive....but this would not happen due to the $4.6 billion budget gap.You can find out more about this : NC Historical Marker Program.
This was a very sad , sad comment about what took place in this state and 19 others during this time,of 40 years....very sad.

more current info......the man accused of the "serial killings" in SC, lived and died in the shoot out, he started in NC, when officers tried to serve a warrant for a seperate issue.
Seems he only served 7 of the 9 years for many things, including armed robbery.

With neighbors like this..........

Sewage has always been dumped into the Little Tennessee, from Highlands via the Cullasaja River, from Franklin, from a lot of houses that have escaped the ceptic tank drain fields and every animal that poops and pees in the woods or streams! Franklin and Highlands treat their sewage as will Rabun/Clayton and the factory that was there for decades and dumped their treated sewage in the river. So it goes along the rivers that feed into the Mississippi and that giant sewage trough flows into the Gulf of Mexico with all the untreated bird, animal, fish and insect/other critter poo! That's life! Oh, lots of decaying dead animals, etc, leach into the streams too, along with who knows what chemicals and petroleum products.

07-29-09 More info on swine flu(H1N1)......
no longer is the CDC/WHO keeping counts.....to many to run labs on....so only in a large group with deaths....then they will check.
Comforting? not realy. In addition: there are several places to go for more information that will be disturbing. But people need to know what is going on....if possible. www.wpxi has a story concerning a study:Swine Flu Hits Expecting Moms Hard , dated 7-28-09. Today a federal vaccine advisoy panel is meeting to discuss this and who should be first to recieve vaccines.One problem:Tamilu--Swine flu is resistant to this and several countries:Germany and Japan had horrible side effects and reported such to the CDC and WHO.Just a few of those effects:delerium/hallucination s/death.
Canadian Food Industry(CFIA), alters management plan for Pandemic H1N1 in Swine Herds ,dated 7-27-09 with the AASV News archive. They will not quartine herds with the swine flu.
7-23-09 AASV News archive:Discovery of swine as a host for the Reston Ebolavirus.Yep....Ebola.Seems this virus they call(REBOV) has entered the human food chain.They are more divergent than the original virus isolated in 1989.Possibly circulating before discovery of REBVO in monkeys.
www.porkmag.com on 3/5/07 New Viral Strain Taking Toil on U.S. Pork industry. Even back then Smithfield Foods was having trouble with the virus.Was the American people told this? NO.Check out PCV2. Back then they felt the virus had mutated.Dec. 26,2008: PCVAD resource Center: Yep..... Reston-Ebola virus. This virus belongs to the Filoviridae family to which humans and primates are suscetible. This was the first time the Ebola virus has been isolated from swine. Where we told about this? NO.
Where we told about the monkeys that were shipped to the U.S. that were effected? NO.They were shipped to places like: Tx and Va.
Google : Ebola Reston Outbreaks and also Ferlite Farms where they are being sent from.Stanford University has these reports.
Do we all feel safe about our food now?
How about all these tests seeing if citizens had come down with this stuff? Doesn't this put you to ease? Not me......who knew about all this ? Why was it not in the regular media?

updates of Macon/Franklin:
Macon news for 7-30-09 : "the EDC is realy motivated and more active...." EDC member and mayor Joe Collins. McCoy continues to work as a consultant of the EDC while Coordinator,Trevor Dalton is still "training."
McCoy.. "feels that economic development is realy about the creation of wealth in a society."
7-30-09 Macon News: "State demographer corrects county planner's figures:Derek Roland realeased misleading numbers last week." oh well...this is o.k..... Right?
7-30-09 Macon News: "Overbuild...or over-billed?": seems the new town hall comes in at a figure difference of over $383,424. Guess they had the money to spend. Right? The (NCI) National Comnmunications bid was for $15,935 but was paid $113,755. But never fear.....all state of the art stuff. Suppossedly if one goes down, another area can handle everything.....wait a minute......do they know that a police dept. with a Criminal base computor for the N.C.I., for information can only be accessed by those people that have signed a form saying they know that if they violate, in any way, the information they know, outside of their job they will recieve a fine/and ,or imprisioned? So this new software that "they" think can be shared, wether it be the police/road/county commission/city hall......are they realy sure they want to do this. Oh well .....it has been bought and installed. There ya go.Do not foget the total for the Town Hall construction cost were $667,479 and paid to Dalton Construction. Wow. Now Trevor Dalton will have a nice "new" expensive office and furniture.
All this is O.K. with everyone......right?

Funny, how the guy was not a terrorist when he was fighting with the Taliban/Mujahadeen against the Soviets! Now, he visited Pakistan, etc, and did some target practice, like any other southern boy and his sons and he's a terrorist because he had converted to Islam and his wife wore that Burka around the neighborhood. One person's freedom fighter, fighting the Soviets, next person's terrorist, not really fighting anyone, just target shooting!
