You are absolutely correct. Shuler got $4Million, with promises of $8.8M from funds hidden in the defense budget, and promises of the rest of $52M paid thru 2020, given it's appropriated. If it isn't, after 2020, it's over..........TVA's off the hook, NPS will say their debt's paid, stop the cemetery visits, put the North Shore in Wilderness.....and it will be over for everyone. To add, has anyone noticed how campsites keep getting closed: the Cascades on Hazel Creek and Ritter Camp #7? Between corrupt promises and corrupt politians, it will all be over..........

This issue is far from being over. The people of Swain County will never receive any money. Four of the Swain County Commissioners, Heath Shuler and Bev the Governor all sold Swain County down the road. None of these people would even listen to what the citizens of the North Shore felt about this issue. I guess the four commissioners and Heath got their share of the money from the Park Service, Swain County has only got one true leader, and the people know who that is. Bev will have the so called money spent before she leaves office.
