Sonfire Media announces the release of the book, “All the Damn Christians: A Glimpse into the Mirror of Hypocrisy,” by John W. Stiles, PhD.

Dr. Stiles is a native of Sylva, N.C., but spends much of his time traveling the globe as an international speaker, and as U.S. Director for Hannam University in South Korea. He is a graduate of Montreat College, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, and the University of Southern Mississippi.

In his book, Stiles presents a research-based look at non-Christian’s perceptions of the Church. His title, “All the Damn Christians,” comes directly from a study respondent who wrote, “I would have a much higher regard for the religion itself if it weren’t for all the damn Christians.”

Stiles reminds us that Christians have been called hypocrites for centuries, and even now, many nonbelievers react defensively at the slightest reference to Christianity. In his book, the author shares candid insights as to why the world rejects the faith and illustrates how Christians can turn hypocrisy into opportunity.


Friends of the Scottish Tartan Museum will celebrate Tartan Day on Saturday, April 5, with a Scottish Lunch that the Friends put on annually for the downtown business persons of Franklin.

“It is a favor for putting up with all our Scottish foolery in front of their shops during Taste of Scotland in June,” said Eleanor Swift, president of Friends of the Scottish Tartan Museum.

This year, the copy of the Treaty of Arbroath was lifted from its hidden spot along the display and a large illustrated poster was made describing what preceded its composition and the important effects it had in England and in America. It started out with William Wallace handing over the leadership to Robert the Bruce who inspired the Scots to win at the Battle of Bannockburn in 1314.


The 2013-14 First Thursday Old-Time and Bluegrass Jam Series at Western Carolina University’s Mountain Heritage Center will continue Thursday, April 3, with a concert featuring the traditional string band Crooked Pine.

Crooked Pine was originally organized in 1974 with founding members Craig Bannerman, bass; Marion Boatwright, fiddle; and Frank McConnell, guitar. The group played many venues across Western North Carolina over the years and evolved with new members, but eventually disbanded.

In 2010, however, Crooked Pine reformed with the three original members, and banjo and mandolin player Troy Harrison has been added to the mix. From its home base in Brevard, the band has been performing at festivals, dances and other events in the area and was recently featured in a promotional video created by the Transylvania County Chamber of Commerce.
