Opinion Letters

President Chapman of the Local Tea Party recently had a letter published. The purpose of this letter is to “refudiate” the spurious statements she made regarding the core beliefs of the Tea Party.

While Ms. Chapman goes on at length to defend her Tea Party with zeal, one should question her proclamation that the TParty is a “political phenomenon of the 21st century.” Ms. Chapman, I was born at night, but it sure wasn’t last night. Tea Partiers are an old crusade in different packaging. How can you claim to be of the 21st century, while advocating the failed policies of the 18th century?


Federated Women’s Club genuinely desires to express our heartfelt appreciation to all who supported our recent annual flea market/boutique at Tartan Hall. Our families, friend and neighbors — once again — helped provide the club with wonderful and varied items to sell, and we were surely blessed with a steady multitude of spirited, serious shoppers.

Your continued loyalty enables Federated Franklin Women’s Club to provide numerous and vital outreach to the children of Macon County throughout the calendar year.


To those confused with the extreme conflict of interest.

I am Ronnie Smith, Founder of D.B.O.W.N.C. (Dedicated Bikers of Western North Carolina) and creator of the Ruby Bash Rally. This was the third annual and no problems! I feel it was a great success. Never could have done it without Karen Flowers and all the help we received. I say thank you!

Now the confusion created by Ronnie Havens big 2012 rally has caused me lots of grief. I was concerned about next year, but it came this year.


It is unfortunate that people fall for the scare tactics used by career politicians. One big untruth making the rounds is that the Tea Party wants to take away Social Security.

The fact is, the Tea Party desperately wants to preserve Social Security. We believe this can be done by making sure everyone 55 or above gets the benefits for which they have paid. Then we have to find a solution to keep it solvent for our younger workers.
