Would it not be most fesiable to put the new power generating plant downtown where the local environmentalist can watch it. It seems so important to have criticial eyes on this posible source of polution. A place near UNC-A with all its science community seems most practical. The Forest Service needs to cut cost and they have enough space just across from the school could be used.

A good ole timey haggler would do a much better job than what we have now in Asheville and the County.

Ummm, can counties swap 'horses' with other counties? We have 5 commisioners and 1 county manager that we will swap for 1 good haggler and we'll throw in Asheville City Council to boot.

Any takers?
