Opinion Letters

This past Tuesday at noon as requested by the 200 members of the Political Action Committee I spoke in favor of the need for a dialysis unit here in Macon County, hoping the DaVita Corporation, who has serviced the area for a long time, be given the go ahead to open a unit here.

We veterans wish to say a huge thank you to Commissioner Ronnie Beale who has worked very hard to land our community the needed dialysis unit here in Macon. Thanks, Ronnie for a job well done. We vets salute you for your effort for all of us.

Bill Trapani — Franklin, N.C.

We would like to extend our sincere appreciation for the hard work of a few Macon County residents.

Last week, Derek Roland, Franklin Planner, spoke at Rosman High School (Transylvania County) about the dangers of drinking and driving. The loss of his brother has certainly affected him and his family, but Mr. Roland is turning that loss into positive action by warning others of the consequences of a negative decision. It is not easy for just anyone to relate to and impact teenagers, but he made an impression on our student body. Evident by the tears and comments afterward, many students and teachers commented they felt they knew Parker Mathis personally.


VFW Post 7339 in Franklin expresses their thanks and deep appreciation to Larry Hollifield with American Computer for retrofitting, cleaning and installing our computer cash flow and inventory sysem. It required considerable time and expertise to do the job and train our staff.

We were able to purchase a system that was no longer being used. We discovered that the electronic receipt printer did not work and Tony Curtis with Radio Shack came to our rescue with one.


Once upon a time a man rose to be the leader of his country. It was achieved by a revolution of the masses who accepted the new order of everyone being equal. The new leader executed millions of people that opposed the new philosophy of equality for all. He killed the opposing political leaders, the wealthy and the landowners. He was hailed for creating the new order. Businesses, farms, universities, professions, factories, housing and all other activity came under the ruler and his appointed committees. The rest of the world was in awe. The masses owned and controlled all segments of the society. There were no rich and no poor, only equals.

In the adjacent land the masses wanted to achieve the same kind of wealth. They followed a new leader and revolted. The old government fell. Committees were formed to reconstruct their society of equals, as there neighbors had done. Gone were the millionaires, the landowners and the money lenders. All were equals, no rich and no poor.
