Opinion Letters

What continues to amaze me is that in this age when so much information is available via the Internet, we still have people like Carol Adams, of Glenville, N.C., who continue to be totally ignorant about the Environmental Protection Agency. It probably won’t do any good to ask her to check her facts carefully before she begins charging that the agency is “out of control, often operating autonomously with bureaucrats rather than elected officials.”

Indeed, this is perhaps far too much to ask, but if she’s got the time to establish a free GMAIL account with Google ... and if she wouldn’t mind creating a “news alert” for herself ( ... she can then have that search engine deliver into her inbox — free of charge, either once a day or less often — news stories regarding all the things the EPA attempts to do on her behalf, as well as the rest of the American people.


Macon Program for Progress would like to extend their sincere gratitude for another successful Holiday Angels project. MPP receives no state or federal funds to support this program and depends solely on community support from individuals and from other service agencies. All monetary donations are either used for purchasing food, clothing, toys, or other household supplies for eligible families including the elderly. This year family sponsors adopted anywhere from one child up to forty-five children.

Holiday Angels sponsors gave monetary donations, adopted families and arranged shopping trips, provided food, and shopped and delivered gifts for participants.


On Tuesday, Feb. 8, Macon County commissioners will have an opportunity to make history. The opportunity is to vote on their support for the creation of the 3,200 acre Bob Zahner Wilderness in Macon county. This area, established as the Overflow Wilderness Study Area in 1984 when NC’s last wilderness bill was passed, will permanently protect the area from future logging and additional roads. Nothing will change with this designation except permanent protection of the area. Current roads will remain open, along with campsites along those roads, buffers will be maintained around overlooks to maintain views, and all current uses such as hunting, fishing, horseback riding and hiking will continue.


I have heard so much negativity about Frontier buying out Verizon. I just had to write and say how wrong rumors can be. I cannot find any fault with or Frontier telephone. All employees are based in USA. Hurray for Frontier!

If you need to call them. no long wait time, if any. No problem understanding what is said and fast courteous service.
