This was in the Asheville Citizen Times. Looks to me like Heath Shuler is the only one who cares about the situation as Charles Taylor is never around.

The North Shore Road is not a “cash settlement” issue. This ongoing controversy involves a deep-seated, broken promise made by government officials in the early 1940s to hundreds of broken-hearted families who were forced to leave their homes, their lands, their roots, their heritage, burial sites of their loved ones, etc. Their only ray of hope was to someday travel a new replacement road up and down the north side of Fontana Lake which would permit them to visit their treasured past and the graves of loved ones left behind. Interestingly enough, none of these folks had the resources to employ legal expertise for negotiating adequate renumeration or for creating a binding contract for the replacement road. And too, most were led to believe that the lesser settlement amounts would help to defray the cost of a new road.
