Franklinton tells shooters: 'Hold your fire!'

FRANKLINTON -- Hundreds of residents, property owners, business developers and a group of ex-mayors told town commissioners that allowing a gun range to operate close to homes and a priority business corridor would be a disaster.
Apparently, the governing board listened.
After a more than two-and-a-half-hour public hearing, commissioners voted unanimously to deny a special use permit request that would have allowed Tony Norton and Dan Stalfire to operate a gun range on 88.5 acres just north and west of town.

From simple sign to historic artifact

LOUISBURG -- What began as a simple commercial message more than 40 years ago touting a new line of televisions being sold by a local business has, over the years, evolved into a piece of public folk art worth preserving in downtown Louisburg.
And that's what will happen this summer, thanks to Louisburg College Professor Will Hinton, who is taking the lead on restoring the C&P Music Co. sign that has been a fixture on the side of a Nash Street building since 1973 or 1974.

Louisburg approves rezoning request

LOUISBURG -- Town leaders unanimously agreed to rezone a lot at the corner of North Bickett Boulevard and Williamson Street (just north of Rite Aid) from residential to office and institutional during its Monday night meeting.
The change complies with the town's land use plan and had been recommended by the town's planning board. The lot is about two-thirds of an acre.
One resident, Ken Ketterer, of 106 John Street, objected to the change, said that while the site may need to be rezoned in the future, "now is not the future."

New plan aims to curb domestic violence

BUNN -- Law enforcement agencies rolled out an anti-domestic violence plan designed to save lives.
More than a year ago, the county's Domestic Violence/Sexual Assault Task Force -- made up of officers, Safe Space members and courthouse staff -- hosted a representative with the North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence to install a Lethality Assessment Program (LAP) for Franklin County.
LAP is a protocol-based plan to prevent domestic violence homicides and serious injury.
