Continuing with the series on Secrets Gems in Cowee as part of the 90th Anniversary of the store, the Friends of the Rickman Store are sharing with visitors the many gifts and talents of members of the community. This time “Chuck” Coburn will share stories and answer the frequently asked questions, “How did the Scots come to North Carolina?” “Why do we have a Scottish Museum in Franklin? Are there really many folks here of Scottish descendants?”

The Macon County community continues to rally around the local homeless population as a symposium was held Tuesday night at the county's community building.

Bob Bourke of Macon New Beginnings led the meeting, which was intended to gather information and bring local organizations and stakeholders together to see how a collective solution can be reached in order to solve the county's homeless population.

The most recent survey done on the homeless in Macon County reports that about 24 people are homeless. That number is approximate, as it is a challenge to know the actual number of people who are homeless.
