We snooze, secrecy threatens, businesses close
We snooze, secrecy threatens, businesses close

You snooze, you lose.
We've all heard that old adage and it's usually true.
But even though most of us here in Franklin County haven't been snoozing in recent days, we may be about to lose something important thanks to clueless legislators in Raleigh.

Take a moment to stop and smell the roses while you can
Take a moment to stop and smell the roses while you can

Here it is, the second week of July and I had an opportunity to look back at, well, I won't call them New Year's resolutions, but some things I intended to enjoy more in 2020.
Of course, at the end of December 2019, who had any idea what a cluster-you-know-what that 2020 would turn out to be.
Fortunately, though, my goal was to enjoy more of nature.

COVID adversity helped make hospital better, CEO reports

In recent weeks, I have been reflecting on the unprecedented challenges that our community and our team at Maria Parham Health have faced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.
More specifically, I've been intentionally looking for every possible silver lining in a time when - let's face it - we all need some positive news. We are always seeking new ways to enhance how we care for our community and advance our mission of making communities healthier.

Celebrating the United States!

Dear editor: Today we celebrate the arrival of the United States of America onto the world stage. As a member of American Legion Auxiliary Franklinton Unit 52, I want to personally thank all service members of the Armed Forces of the United States of America for their innumerable contributions to protecting our freedoms and keeping our nation safe.

It's easy to be critical of monuments without information

Dear editor: As the Confederate Monument is coming down, I am certain there will be tremendous benefits for everyone.
Louisburg College will be revered as an educational mecca for high school students who want the absolute best education available. Certainly, the Town of Louisburg and Franklin County will be considered responsive to the desires and opinions of most of its citizens.

Monument honored sacrifices

Dear editor: The Franklin Rifles, Camp 310, of the Sons Of Confederate Veterans felt we had to say something. As most of you know, the Town of Louisburg voted recently in favor of totally and blatantly disrespecting a group of Franklin County Veterans. They voted 3 to 4 in favor of moving the memorial that has stood on Main St. sinse 1914 -- "The Monument To The Confederate Dead."

Monument's move supported

Dear editor: This is not to get a pat on my back but I was the first one to suggest to move the monument to the cemetery by the newspaper, "The Franklin Times." I learned that they had ancestors out there by a great-great-grandson that was a patient of mine when I worked at the hospital.
But I just want to thank that professor that did more research and pushed the Louisburg Town Council to use our suggestion.
