Opinion Letters

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.

Even within all the busyness of the season, the search inside our hearts and minds yearns for relationships of fond memories of the past, whether for the loved one that has gone on, or the wayward child, in hoping they would corne back to open arms of forgiveness and love.

What started as a small outreach to our church family has grown over the years to help meet the needs of our community. This year we served over 300 meals, many more than last year. We, at the church, are very grateful to all who volunteered who make this event possible. Over 50 helpers joined us, and it was particularly wonderful to have so many young people pitch in this year. Their energy and willingness made the work seem light.
