On Jan. 23, 53 Christians from Western North Carolina traveled to Washington, D.C. to participate in the annual March for Life. The March for Life is the largest protest in our nation’s capital each year. It is held on or near Jan. 22, to coincide with the Supreme Court’s decision in the case of Roe v. Wade to peacefully seek to petition Congress for redress.

Marchers join with hundreds of thousands of pro-lifers each year from many religions, ethnicities and ages as they walk from the National Mall down Constitution Avenue to the steps of the Supreme Court.


Friends of the Scottish Tartans Museum hosted Franklin’s version of Burns Night, a traditional feast celebrating the life and works of Scottish poet Robert Burns (born Jan. 25, 1759).

The Jackson County Green Energy Park has become an important and vibrant part of the community, combining renewable energy and art education in ways that everyone can enjoy and appreciate. But in order to continue operating and moving forward, the GEP will need a lot of volunteer help. To make that happen, a “Friends of the Green Energy Park” organization is being formed.

A public meeting is scheduled for Friday, Feb. 18, at 7 p.m. in the new Jackson County Senior Center off Webster Road near SCC. An overview of the current operations of the Green Energy Park will be presented, along with longterm and short-term future plans, and talk about the future form of the GEP.
