Opinion Letters

We can have human inalienable rights or corporations can have inalienable rights but we cannot have both. I am not anti corporation. I use state chartered corporations to facilitate my business. When corporations operate as designed within the realm of privileges granted, they serve humans. When corporations go beyond granted privilege and take on human rights, they become the master and we humans the slave.

“... corporations have no consciences, no beliefs, no feelings, no thoughts, no desires. Corporations help structure and facilitate the activities of human beings ... But they are not themselves members of “We the People” by whom and for whom our Constitution was established.” Supreme Court Justice Stevens, January 2010


This past Tuesday at noon as requested by the 200 members of the Political Action Committee I spoke in favor of the need for a dialysis unit here in Macon County, hoping the DaVita Corporation, who has serviced the area for a long time, be given the go ahead to open a unit here.

We veterans wish to say a huge thank you to Commissioner Ronnie Beale who has worked very hard to land our community the needed dialysis unit here in Macon. Thanks, Ronnie for a job well done. We vets salute you for your effort for all of us.

Bill Trapani — Franklin, N.C.

We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the hard work of a few Macon County residents.

Last week, Derek Roland, Franklin Planner, spoke at Rosman High School (Transylvania County) about the dangers of drinking and driving. The loss of his brother has certainly affected him and his family, but Mr. Roland is turning that loss into positive action by warning others of the consequences of a negative decision. It is not easy for just anyone to relate to and impact teenagers, but he made an impression on our student body. Evident by the tears and comments afterward, many students and teachers commented they felt they knew Parker Mathis personally.


VFW Post 7339 in Franklin expresses their thanks and deep appreciation to Larry Hollifield with American Computer for retrofitting, cleaning and installing our computer cash flow and inventory sysem. It required considerable time and expertise to do the job and train our staff.

We were able to purchase a system that was no longer being used. We discovered that the electronic receipt printer did not work and Tony Curtis with Radio Shack came to our rescue with one.
