Opinion Letters

You talk about men of action, I witnessed just that. The Vietnam Veterans Chapter 994 in Macon County, in two days a group of them in the bad weather spent hours erecting a large stage to be used this past Easter weekend for our community use. Our hats off to them for their service to our community and service to our country.

With respect,

William Trapani — Franklin, N.C.

I'm thru hiking the Appalachian trail. For the past few days I've been hiking with a young man from Germany. As we were approaching Franklin we encountered several residents at the road crossings giving snacks and beverages, trail magic we call it, to the hikers.

At Winding Stair Gap a local resident stopped and gave us a ride to the Sapphire Inn. There, we paid for our room, took a shower and went out to get a meal and hiking supplies. Within five minutes, we were given a ride to the restaurant we wanted to go to.


I wish to express how proud I am to be a member of this community and Amercan Legion Post 108. We, here in Macon County set the bar high for the rest of the stops on the A.T. for the “Warrior Hikers.”

Saturday, March 30, was a great success. Carlie Nicols and the ladies of “Quilts of Valor,” presented a quilt to each hiker and a “Bandana of Valor” to Cooper (Service Dog). Mr. Loyd Hall cooked an awesome barbecue enjoyed by all.


The All Saints’ Episcopal Community is grateful to St. John’s Episcopal Church, The First Presbyterian Church, St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church and Resurrection Lutheran Church for so graciously responding to our lost palm order predicament by sharing their palms with us for Palm Sunday.

Last week the palm order for The All Saints’ Episcopal Community did not arrive as expected. When calling the company, we were told they had no record of our order, which had been placed in early February.
