A son had been contacted regard ing the provision of transporta - ' tion for his elderly mother to get to the doctor, grocery store, etc. However, the mother feels that her son no longer cares about her. He is too busy working to support his fa mily. The son never visits, * even though - he passes her tome on the way to work. His wife doesn't work; but she cannot seem to find time to stop by pither. When the son and his family go to Burnsville on Sa turday to shop, etc. there isn't "room" for mother to go along. For some reason, this . son feels that the Department of Social Services should help njs mother with the necessary func tions of daily living! If parents were to feel this way toward minor children, court action • would be taken. But who is "» mere dependent and helpless than an aged person in poor health, living alone without transportation, telephone,and several miles from the nearest store? Yet nobody seems to care.

Within a week after invitations were mailed, the quota of 500 was Tilled as requests for the kits poured in. The procedure to start the •seeds' fairly simple, TVA explains, but care din ing the first few weeks is cru cial to plant survival and ul timate success of the prpject.

Because of our unsuccessful effort'to retain the in | | dependence of the newspaper, we are disassociating our ] selves with Yancey Publishing Company, Inc. and begin ning our own publication, The Yancey Journal, to serve the people of this county. Our reasons for such a dras- >; i tic action should be stated, for this concerns every Yan i cey Countian. i The president of Community Newspapers, lnc,which pany, Inc. fecently sent jj directive to managers of all J 1 newspapers under its control?—more than a dozen at this 8 1 time—to fix the price of advertising at a certain mini- 8 1 mum rate; to raise the price of street sales to 15$ per copy; and to set the price of out-of-county subscripdcns 8 ; to double the amount of in-county subscriptions--a sub stantial r,lie increase in almost every instance. Pre- 8 | viously weitacTbeeh strongly ’urged to raise the price [ of legals in the Mitchell Ledger, which we refused todo. I This directive map' or may not be in violation of law, 8 but in our opinion it violates the free enterprise system by establishing price controls for newspapers in Western North Carolina. We do not want to be involved in am 8 apparent attempt to standardize prices in these many X newspapers through corporation monopoly. ij For this reason, and other considerations—including 8 our belief that it is the intention of Community News- 8 1 papers Inc. to merge The Yancey Record and Mitchell 8 1 Ledger with the Tri-County News contrary to a verbal S| 1 agreement made to us—we are establishing The Yancey 8 | Journal to serve the Yancey County area as an indepen- X dent newspaper. Our loyal employees and correspondents, as well as 8 our major advertisers support us in this endeavor. X For the present time, The Yancey Journal is being H sent to every boxholdar in Yancey County free of chargi. 8 If we should succeed in our effort to regain The Yancey Record as an independent newspaper, we will honor all i subscription claims from both in-county and out-of- jjj | county subscribers to that paper. We ask your indulgsrce | ► •*-please bear with us and lend us your support until this 9 matter has reached its final conclusion. . Any questions I | or correspondence may be sent to The Yancey Journal \ or Ed Yuziuk, Burnsville, North Carolina. 5 >4 Office Vandalized TV. office of The Yancey Record on the Town Square in Burnsville was vandalized Wednesday, March 29th, and subscription files as well as account files were taken.
