Opinion Letters

With yet another Christmas season that is quickly coming upon us, can be for some, one of the most meaningful times of the year. Families coming together sharing in times of the past, enjoying the present and looking and hoping towards the future. For many, it’s a time to set the wrongs of the past right again and try a renewed approach toward life and living.

Even within all the busyness of the season, the search inside our hearts and minds yearns for relationships of fond memories of the past, whether for the loved one that has gone on, or the wayward child, in hoping they would corne back to open arms of forgiveness and love.


First Presbyterian Church hosted its annual Community Thanksgiving Dinner on Thanksgiving Day. We thank all who helped make this event a success this year.

What started as a small outreach to our church family has grown over the years to help meet the needs of our community. This year we served over 300 meals, many more than last year. We, at the church, are very grateful to all who volunteered who make this event possible. Over 50 helpers joined us, and it was particularly wonderful to have so many young people pitch in this year. Their energy and willingness made the work seem light.


This is to pass along information that my efforts to acquire ownership of WRGC radio were successful. Thanks to the Jackson County Commissioners for their commitment to make this effort work.

We will be changing from the 680 frequency to the 540 frequency with 5000 watts. Our coverage area should be from Canton to Nantahala and Otto to the top of the Great Smokies.


Locally produced services can make great gifts

As the holidays approach, the giant Asian factories are kicking into high gear to provide us monstrous piles of cheaply produced goods — merchandise that has been produced at the expense of our labor forces. This year will be different. This year, Americans will give the gift of genuine concern for each other at home. At gift giving time, there is no longer the old excuse, that nothing can be found produced at home by our own citizens.

Oh ... Yes, here is a list! Think outside the box, people! Who says a gift needs to fit in a shoe box, wrapped in Chinese produced wrapping paper?
