Opinion Letters

Dear Editor,

This letter should probably begin as “Dearest Macon County” because it is all inclusive. On behalf of the Macon County Care Network's Board of Directors, volunteers, and staff, thank you for your continued support. Your support has helped to provide hope to many who find themselves at dire straights. Your support has gone towards food boxes, hot meals, backpacks, clothing, warm blankets, electric bills, prescription assistance, the list goes on.

On behalf of everyone at The Bascom I’d like to express our deep appreciation to all of the area non-profits that provided decorated Christmas trees for our recent Giving Trees exhibition.

According to the Federal Election commission the Pope family members actually contributed $16,000 directly to Davis campaign. What Davis neglected to mention was that Pope actually spent $265,666 on ads attacking Senator John Snow through his tax-exempt, supposedly non-partisan groups like Civitas Action and Real Jobs.
