Regarding the December 2 article on obesity being the top county health challenge.
Both The Franklin Press and The Macon News covered this story and published photos of Kathy McGaha, the Macon Public Health quality program manager. It appears that Ms. McGaha is somewhat obese and that is exactly the nature of the problem. Obesity is rampant and fully acceptable in Macon County. A visit to any of our public schools will show that a very high percentage of our teachers are obese. Our children spend their days in school around fat teachers and go home to fat parents. It’s truly no wonder that many of these children think it is perfectly alright to be obese.
