Arts & Entertainment New book motivated by Washington D.C. gridlock

A retired Chief Operating Officer has been motivated by the Washington D.C. gridlock to offer his "food for thought" solutions. Jim Staggers has been writing his messages for seven years, and retired to Mill Creek, Franklin, N.C., five years ago. As V.P. and C.O.O. of APL Corporation, Stagger's experiences in business management are described and utilized in presenting his concerns in his new book, "Messages To My Descendents — Please Fix Our Government." He is a graduate of the University of Pittsburg with a B.S. in Chemistry, and attended Syracuse University to study finance and business management.

Staggers will be holding a book signing at the Macon County Public Library, located at 149 Siler Farm Rd., in Franklin, phone, (828)524-3600; reading and discussion beginning at 4:30 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 18.
