Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity to shine a light on the experiences of children and youth in the foster care system.

Many communities are urgently seeking more everyday people to come forward to help these young people realize their full potential. No matter how much time you have to give, you have the power to do something positive that will change a lifetime for a young person in foster care. May is National Foster Care Month. Every state in our country has children in foster care. They belong to all of us. Now is the time to show we care.


The All Saints Episcopal community of St. Agnes and St. Cyprian's parish would like to thank all those who attended this year's inspirational Lenten Preaching Series.

Three hundred fifty-five dollars and 21 pounds of food was donated to CareNet and $147 was donated to Angel Hospice.


Thank you for all of the staff who helped pull off such an event. The teamwork and school pride that was fostered will only make our school a better place to be. Thank you as well to all who helped clean up. We are so grateful to all of you as well as those companies and organizations:


I urge my fellow Macon County voters to support the reelection of County Commissioner Bobby Kuppers, a man of proven high ability who is committed to listening to us and finding solutions to our county’s need.

Bobby Kuppers has had an exceptional career. Following graduation from the Naval Academy he became commander of the attack nuclear submarine “Key West,” and after that he was the Commanding Officer of the Trident Submarine Training School. But his dream was to return to teach and coach at his old school, Franklin High, and for the last twelve years he has done that, he has worked countless hours in local politics finding common ground between parties, attempting, as he says, “to avoid the deadlock found on the Federal level.”
