THE TOWN HALL IS PART OF HIS LEGACY. f "Several years ago, Mayor Carr shared with me his dream of a commu- nity center :for Sand Fork. He never gave up and never minded getting his hands dirty to see a project completed. He had the talent of Creativity and the work skills to do the job. Because of his vision and with the support of the town, the families of Sand Fork can share in a facility that gives them a place of fellowship, a showplace of their history, and a meeting place to plan for a successful future. The music and laughter will continue in Sand Fork, and Mayor Carr's legacy will live on." Rosemary Wagner, Executive Director Region VII Planning and Development Council "Mayor Carr was the consummate public servant and. the longevity, of his service bears record to his love of family, community and nation. In addition to nearly four decades as mayor, Carl was equally active in a host of community, county and regional endeavors and always a community leader. He was a family man and public servant that will be sorely missed by all."

Hn Proposal To Fund Quality, Affordable Health Care WV-Citizen Action praised a U.S. House Ways and Means proposal to apply a surcharge on the income of the wealthiest one percent of Americans. Mark-up in key House committees will begin this week, and supporters of quality, affordable health care re- form hope a bill will pass the U.S. House later this month. Gary Zuckett, Executive Director of WV-Citizen Action called the sur- charge proposal "a game changer" and said identifying the savings pro- posed by President Obama and rais- ing significant revenue will lower health care costs for health, their se- curity, their overall well-being," Zuckett said. "But for this to happen, the wealthiest Americans, those mak- ing up the top one percent of the income bracket, are going to have to kick in to help share the costs of paying for quality, affordable reform with a public health insurance op- tion." Meanwhile, Citizens for Tax Jus- tice released a new report this week that examines the policy implications of a surcharge on households with incomes over $350,000. The report includes comprehensive, state-by- state information stating the average impact on taxpayers at different in- come levels. In WV for example, only .5 percent of the state's population would pay the surcharge. Nationally, the surcharge would raise $540-$550 billion to fund quality, affordable health care for all, including a public health insurance option.
