With the March 31 deadline approaching for all Americans to have access to health insurance through the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Mountain Projects is hosting a free seminar Saturday, March 1 to explain and review how the ACA may impact health care coverage for individuals and businesses. This free seminar will review the individual mandate in detail, discussing the benefits, the penalties, and the tax implications.

Beginning in 2014, every U.S. resident will be required by law to have health care coverage or pay a tax penalty. Macon County Certified Healthcare Navigator Cynthia Solesbee will provide a basic overview of the law, followed by a brief discussion of the program's new requirements, along with some of the plans available for consumers, small business employers, and employees of small business. Solesbee represents Mountain Projects, the nonprofit community action agency responsible for Head Start and many other programs which provide vital services to the elderly, disadvantaged and general public throughout Western North Carolina.

In a split 3-2 vote, the leaders of Macon County opted to fully develop the new recreational facility at Parker Meadows over the next year. With Commissioners Jim Tate, Ronnie Beale, and Kevin Corbin voting in favor of the project, the board had the majority vote to move forward.

Macon County commissioners had already approved the project, but were only obligated to minimally develop the project to obtain money from the state. After research into the cost of developing the project in phases compared to completing the project all at once, Recreation Director Seth Adams asked the county to consider different development options.


Snow barreled down in Macon County last week, with totals ranging from 4 to 11 inches.

From Otto to Cowee, the county was blanketed white.

Spring like temperatures quickly melted the snow, but not before giving Macon residents a few days to enjoy the winter wonderland.
