Opinion Letters

If we hadn’t figured it out by 2008, we should have at least gotten a clue. The congressional and White House phones and emails were jammed with unprecedented pleas from “We the People.” Not only were the lines jammed; the polls strongly indicated that “We the People” oppose the banker bailout.

Regardless, the banks got bailed out and “We the People” got sold out.

Corporate privilege continued into the next administration.


We were honored to have a group of CPAs from Drake Software and graduate students from Western Carolina University volunteer on Sept. 20 at CareNet.

The group had an opportunity to assist in the food pantry, file room and work with the BackPack Program. Needless to say, they left with a better understanding of what goes on daily here at CareNet.

We thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to work with each of you and look forward to having you back again soon.

Thank You,

Shaina d. Adkins
Executive Director Macon County Care Network

It is always exciting when it is time for the Fair. People plan what they will make or bring and hopefully receive some sort of recognition by winning a ribbon or other prize.

It is always sad to see the fair close but hopefully there will be pleasant memories of good times, good food and lots of fun. But this year there are also some unpleasant memories.

On Sunday, when booths and displays in the educational building were taken down it was noted that several items had been taken from the displays.


Critics of my recent letter to the editor accused me of being a Nazi propagandist, a “radical,” a “flat-earther,” a “liar” (unspecified), and ignorant of “the facts and science.”

Why the vitriol? I dared to write that the “global warming crisis” was non-existent. That view contradicted President Obama’s “We Need to Act” [on “global warming”] speech on June 25, 2013, and that cult-like belief of many leftists. Leftists world-wide have used this “crisis” to advance their political agenda for bigger government, increased regulation, higher taxes, and wealth redistribution.

Australian voters just replaced their government after experiencing the devastating economic impact of implementing Obama-like initiatives to attack the non-existent “global warming crisis.” Can the U.S. learn from other countries?
