Opinion Letters

Watching Republicans try to fix problems is like watching a baby try to eat cake. It’s cute that they’re trying, but really, it’s just going to end up making a huge mess and we’ll end up doing double the work because of it.

The new “Voter-ID” law being pledged by the Republican controlled General Assembly comes across as protecting the franchise of people here in North Carolina. They lead you to believe that this is an ever-growing problem that has the potential to up end the democratic process. Aside from the fact this has nothing to do with the creation of jobs to which they ran their campaigns on; as this is completely political. Essentially, this is the right’s Get-Out-The-Vote program to intimidate and stop others from voting.


Chef Caleb Partridge wants to thank everyone who donated towards his spaghetti fundraiser. It was a great success. He raised $600 with the proceeds going to CareNet and IUMC missions.

God’s blessing to everyone.

Caleb Partridge — Franklin, N.C.

On March 5, 2011, N.C. Democrat Governor Beverly Perdue vetoed “Protect Health Care Freedom” (HB 2) as passed by the GOP majority N.C. General Assembly. This bill would have allowed North Carolinians to opt out parts of ObamaCare and purchase their own healthcare.

President Obama is passing out “waivers” to many of his Labor Unions. N.C. Democrat Governor Beverly Perdue, in vetoing HB 2, is attempting to “cram ObamaCare down (y)our throats,” just as the Obama/Reid/Pelosi team did in 2010.

A majority of Americans continue to reject ObamaCare and call for its repeal; however, some Democrats on Capitol Hill who voted against ObamaCare in 2010 are now voting to maintain ObamaCare. Some of the so-called “Blue-Dog Democrats” are now voting in support of “taxsupported” abortions.


Zonta Rose Day marks International Women’s Day

Annually on March 8, thousands of events are held throughout the world to inspire women and celebrate achievements. Diverse activities connect women from all around the world ranging from political rallies, business conferences, government activities and networking events through local women’s craft markets, theatric performances, fashion parades and more. The United States even designates the month of March as Women’s History Month.

As we listen to the current world news, it reminds us there is still much need to address human rights for all people and particularly the inequities of women’s rights globally.
