Opinion Letters

“Buy the state’s legislature,” why, I’m shocked, shocked to think the state’s Republican Party (or Jim Davis) would be party to such an affront as to actually consider buying an election, why it’s unthinkable. The truth of the matter is, whether it’s Art Pope’s money buying influence for Republicans or George Soros’ buying it for Democrats or multi-national corporations buying it for both, Americans are well aware of the enormous and destructive impact money has on our electoral system.


Impact Community Day in Franklin on Oct. 1 was a resounding success! United Methodists in the Franklin area joined community members to make a huge impact. At least 120 volunteers signed up for the event, choosing to work in one of 14 sites around the city (six homes and four institutions). There were multiple jobs being done at each site, including completing home repairs, cutting firewood for CareNet and at least two homes, writing thank you cards to shut ins and to area foster parents, yard clean up, cleaning out a cistern, visiting nursing homes, washing car windows in parking lots, mowing grass, filling in sink holes, and the list goes on. It was absolutely amazing!


American Legion Post 108 of Franklin wishes to say thank you to Macon County News for their support helping us with our Veterans and Families Health Clinic held Sept. 24. A special thank you to staff writer Brittney Parker for taking the time and the wonderful article she wrote about our health clinic. Thank you Mrs. Parker for a job well done.

The Post also wishes to say a huge thank you to the medical agencies for participating in our health clinic held Sept. 24.


We always thought we lived in a great community but after a tragic loss, we know we do. A few weeks ago, our home, owned by Steve Beck, our good friend of many years, was destroyed by fire. Not only was it a personal loss for Steve, but a great personal loss for us, the greatest was losing three of our family pets.

Fortunately for us our neighbors and friends the Spearmans and the Drakes saw the situation first and came to help us to safety.
