Opinion Letters

At this time of Thanksgiving, I want to gratefully acknowledge several people and organizations that have worked very hard on behalf of the abandoned and neglected dogs and cats in Macon County. Because of the dedication of these people and their “hands on” efforts, we have more awareness about unwanted pets and a better grasp on the severe problem of overpopulation.


“Occupy America and friendly fascism: Life in the corporate police state” by John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute in The Macon County News & Shopping Guide for 10 November 2011, was an excellent commentary. Only one point can I disagree with. He says “a corporate-government complex ... has been slowly evolving over many decades.” Indeed, a corporate-government complex has been firmly entrenched for many decades.

Oligarch are the people who manage the giant corporations, and the people who create and trade imaginary money.


November is Nonprofit Awareness Month, and I’d like to take a moment to honor the Macon County Community Foundation. Community foundations comprise a category of nonprofits that we also salute this month (Nov. 12-18), and we want to ensure you’re aware of the resources we provide that help to strengthen Macon County.

Community foundations exist for three reasons: to make grants; to provide lasting giving options for people, businesses and nonprofits; and to serve as leaders, conveners and advocates about local issues and needs.


It has been said, “We have no way of judging the future except by the past.” That is not just a cliché it’s sage advice.

To understand and dispel the confusion as to why our country’s in such a mess and our government so dysfunctional we need only to eavesdrop on the founders of our nation. Remember, what they believed, and their wisdom, is no longer taught in our schools and is something our present leaders would rather you not know.
