During Angel Medical Center Hospice’s Tree Blessing and Lighting, Angel Medical Center’s Hospice Chaplain Rev.

Vic Green blessed three Christmas Decorations to be placed on hospice trees throughout Macon County.



The Dillsboro Festival of Lights & Luminaries illuminated Jackson County’s mountain village for the kickoff of the festival’s 28th year.

Modeled after the Scandinavian custom of lighting the way for the Christ child, more than 2,500 candles in white bags lined the streets last weekend and the festival will continue this Friday and Saturday evenings, Dec. 9-10.

In addition to luminaries lining the sidewalks, Dillsboro’s merchant “elves” trimmed their buildings, many of which date to the 1800s, in traditional white lights. Once the town was lit up with festive decorations, carolers filled the streets singing Christmas favorites, a horse and carriage was on hand to take visitors around the village, and Mr. and Mrs. Claus visited with children at Town Hall.


Dr. Lindsay Kalani Hagaman was united in marriage to Matthew David Patterson in a wedding ceremony in Knoxville, Tenn., on Oct. 22.

Patterson is from Marble and employed at Snap-On Tools.

Dr. Patterson is a family practice physician with Murphy Group Practice of Murphy Medical Center.

As the holidays and winter approach, some families in Macon County may be wondering if they will have enough food to feed their family. One program that helps low and moderate income families is the WIC program.

WIC is a Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children up to age 5 and is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture. WIC can provide guidance and nutritional assistance to eat well, be active and stay healthy.
