Opinion Letters

This is not a partisan concept. The North Carolina State Board of Elections always stressed this at every training seminar for the l00 county boards of elections the entire 13 1/2 years I served on the Board. Five and one half of those years were by appointment by Democratic Governor Jim Hunt and eight years by Republican Governor Jim Martin, and the same emphasis was put on following the laws and making it as convenient as possible for the voters to exercise their rights.


On behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers and the families served through our ministry here at Macon County Care Network (CareNet), we’d like to say thank you to the following businesses who assisted us with this year’s ‘Cold for a Cause’:

Sanders Crane Service, for their support each year in supplying the crane and truck for the event; Baldhead Realty for the assistance with publicizing the event through media/marketing materials; Farm Bureau Insurance staff for their generosity and hosting the event each year; Cash’s Barbeque and Vito’s Pizza for providing food and refreshments; Macon Funeral Home for providing the tent for volunteers who assisted with accepting donations; Signs Express, Goin’ Postal and Banners & Signs Fast for their assistance with print materials and banners for the event.


The changes in the five-year black bear management plan, currently being proposed by the North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission, puts major emphasis on “killing” and “relaxed hunting regulations” of our valued bears with little or no options dedicated to “bear education” as a viable alternative. “Killing” continues to be the preferred wildlife management route pursued by CWRC officials with little emphasis on addressing the public’s role in creating wildlife issues. I, along with many other North Carolina Wildlife Advocates oppose the “killing of more black bears” management philosophy and feel major consideration should “also be given to alternatives” such as educating the public regarding their role in “Living Safely with Black Bears.”


When it comes to Liberal thought processes, I’m totally lost. Some appear to live in a world of fictional people and things that cannot be, where reality is lost and replaced with magic crystals. Logic and facts are not necessary in their world.

To most of us, two plus two still equals four, but somehow, liberals seem to believe, as if by some magic, they can make it add up to five.
