Don't know nothing about growing hops, but any kind of work would get people off food stamps and off their butts in front of the tv.

Hops are a rhizome. It takes three years before you can get a decent harvest from them.

And they're not cheap. It can cost $4 or so per rhizome. Probably about half that if you buy in bulk (in lots of 100 or so) http://www.northwesthops.com/Hop_Rhizomes_s/1...

And, they are expensive to get into. This article says it can cost $10,000 an acre to get started. If people on food stamps can afford that, then they shouldn't be on food stamps or welfare to begin with, but don't get me started on all the $50-70,000 vehicles parked at the local Section 8 housing behind K-Mart.:)

There are more people than jobs in Franklin. I've been seeing a lot of homeless people lately.

The Appalachian Trail thing in town sure was a bust today.

Who was responsible for having it on Easter weekend?

Macon County NC and the area around Franklin is unfriendly to those who move into the area. The thinking is narrow minded and jobs are impossible to find. Some of our neighbors that are from out of the area and one of our children, were all told, by employment agents, that local business would not hire them or others from outside of Macon County. A larger percentage of those that grew up here are bigoted hateful and vile. They look upon "outsiders" as something to take advantage of and ethical business practices are unheard of.

We need more jobs in our town, and less tourists and outsiders. And more Jesus in our lives.

We will be having even less jobs around here with Caterpillar closing down and taking 275 jobs to someplace else.

Our once mighty industrial park is now becoming a ghost town. DO you people need more proof that Franklin is a dying town?

We can do better than this. We used to be the best county in WNC. What has happened to us? We need jobs to get us back on the right track. More jobs, less propaganda about tourists, less bleeding the taxpayers to pay for special interests for just a few so-called leaders.
