The more things change, the more we can lose
The more things change, the more we can lose

It's amazing how quickly things change, sometimes right before your eyes and you don't even notice.
At the annual Person Place Preservation Society meeting late last week, the name John McKay came up -- and conjured up a lot of memories.
John and his wife, Susan, used to operate the Hearthside Inn Bread and Breakfast on Main Street in Louisburg -- and were very active members of the community when I discovered Louisburg in late 1990.

Power-generating deal might be good news

On the surface at least, there should be some good news for electrical customers of the town of Louisburg -- although it's not coming by way of the North Pole.

As we near the end of the year, it is a natural time to reflect. This column is a small percentage of my writing.
The Christmas, New Year's, recap, predictions and Person of the Year type articles are all either in my head or on my hard drive. That writing ahead allows me a little more time for my favorite job, (Grandpa), as the year comes to a close.
On net, I think 2014 was a pretty tough year for Franklin County.

Paying extra 'just because'?

Dear editor:
This is an open letter to the commissioners of Franklin County.
I was intrigued by an article in the Dec. 4 edition of The Franklin Times that said you agreed to pay $600,000 to Dennis Mustian for 60 acres of land to be used to build a football stadium and sports complex at Louisburg High School.
