Opinion Letters

I would like to share with your readers what I have come to realize are fundamental objectives of the Highlands Plateau Audubon Society, which is the local Audubon chapter for Cashiers, Franklin, Highlands, Scaly Mountain and surrounding areas of Macon and Jackson counties. Education and partnering with local schools is one such goal. Initiating and promoting programs that lead to enhanced, safe habitat for native birds is another. Being a local advocate for conservation within our community is a third.


How wonderful that the Democrats have found religion and all of a sudden are experts on what Jesus would say!

Jesus said, “You will always have the poor with you. And whenever you want to, you can give to them.” (Mark 14:7, Contemporary English Version)

Giving is voluntary. Allowing someone to “glean” from your fields is different from the government coming and taking it from you.


Bob Wilson's recent column in another local publication condemning a liberal college education is full of contradiction and misinformation. The point he tried to make was that today's very expensive college degree should be focused on a student's future earning potential. No one can disagree with that.

Mr. Wilson says he agrees with Governor McCrory that all college education should be focused on getting a job, not some silly liberal arts degree. The trouble with that idea is that no one knows what kind of a job he or she will have in 10 years.


Well, I’ve seen most of what I thought could happen in my 82 years, but watching our winter wood pile grow beats all. Sunday while driving to church around 7:30, we passed the famous Franklin wood pile and guess what, they were making it grow bigger.

If I was the chamber of commerce here in Franklin I would install a row of benches across the street in front of the greenway so our tourists could watch the famous wood pile grow daily. Don’t know why or who got mister wood pile supplier upset, but right on brother, I am with you. Stand up for your rights.
