BLACK MOUNTAIN, N.C. — A project to produce a map with the locations of waterfalls in western North Carolina is finally finished.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Thursday that Larry Odoski produced the map after several years of giving tourists directions to the cascades. Odoski spent a year creating the map as a lightweight trail guide with photos, directions and “beauty ratings.”

The 26-by-28-inch topographic map is printed on waterproof paper with the location of 301 waterfalls in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Gorges State Park, DuPont State Forest and Pisgah and Nantahala national forests.

ASHEVILLE — A judge for the North Carolina agency that reviews workplace injury claims has criticized a major regional hospital for repeatedly denying its employees’ compensation requests.

The Asheville Citizen-Times reported Thursday that the criticism was leveled against Mission Hospital.

A state Industrial Commission deputy commissioner said the 6,000-employee Asheville hospital has a history of unreasonably denying claims and displays a pattern of bad faith.

Deputy Commissioner George Glenn II said in a September ruling awarding benefits to a 20-year employee with back problems that he wants the state attorney general and Insurance Department to review the hospital’s decisions.

The hospital said it would cooperate with state authorities.
