Opinion Letters

Let us be honest.

Those who want to place the "national motto" on public buildings are not motivated by patriotism. They see this as a way to promote their religious beliefs and devotion to God. That is the purpose of churches, not government.

Just what does this motto mean? Our nation has, by far, the world's most powerful and most advanced military ever known. And we are the country which proclaims "In God We Trust!" Trust for what? Is this some kind of a joke?


Whether you realize it or not, it still needs to be said. You are valuable and needed. Every person has his/her active role to play in our community.

To use an analogy: Think of the Stars Wars theme music. Hum a little bit of the tune … Bah, Bah bah bah,, In a galaxy … far ... far… away. Now what if the trumpets were not there? Our community too, needs each of us to play our part. Each and every one of us is unique. Without your knowledge, your skills, and your abilities, the community of Macon County just does not “Hum” to its full potential.


Macon County Schools Clothing Closet would like to thank everyone for all the generous donations that we have received. Each and every article of clothing will be greatly appreciated.

A special thank you to Jeff Wong at Carolina Cleaners as well as Peebles of Franklin for their generous donations. Our hearts are full as we assist the children here in Macon County.

Obviously Pope Francis’ visit to America has made a definitive impression on lots of folks and even non-Catholics are enthralled with him. He has touched everyone’s heart and obviously, the Catholic Church is going through a revolution in thinking because of him.

I’m not Catholic, by the way.

But, I’m afraid that Pope Francis has a dim view of Capitalism because he comes from a part of South America where the very rich control the poor and keep them oppressed and where corruption is rampant in civil and private life.
