Opinion Letters

Federated Women’s Club genuinely desires to express our heartfelt appreciation to all who supported our recent annual flea market/boutique at Tartan Hall. Our families, friend and neighbors — once again — helped provide the club with wonderful and varied items to sell, and we were surely blessed with a steady multitude of spirited, serious shoppers.

Your continued loyalty enables Federated Franklin Women’s Club to provide numerous and vital outreach to the children of Macon County throughout the calendar year.

I am Ronnie Smith, Founder of D.B.O.W.N.C. (Dedicated Bikers of Western North Carolina) and creator of the Ruby Bash Rally. This was the third annual and no problems! I feel it was a great success. Never could have done it without Karen Flowers and all the help we received. I say thank you!

It is unfortunate that people fall for the scare tactics used by career politicians. One big untruth making the rounds is that the Tea Party wants to take away Social Security.
