The sheriff won election by a landslide, he must be doing something right. Lot of supporters.

How long has that Sheriff been here? He looks really young in newspaper pics. How did he get elected in a place with so many dyed in the wool old people?

Im a native of Franklin...lived here all my life, And ive driven on some pretty bad roads, But as i was going down Wayah Street heading to our not so Super-Super Walmart..It was like driving over Speed bumps the Whole way! i would think With that being in Town it would have better upkeep?

Franklins turned into nothing but drugs and death for some one who's 22 and knows from personal experience move your hidden out of there before they loose there lives together or Roxie's . I know you all see the arrest reports.

Wayah Street is a bad road because no one on the Town Board lives on it.

Franklin has such a bad drug problem because there are no jobs and the town has sold it's soul for tourist dollars.

There's an old guy who lives close to my business that sells drugs, and a female cop is always at his house. Everyone in the office says they're sleeping together. Something's definately fishy about the whole thing.

Franklin is a backwoods hostile place, out of touch with civilization. I feel sorry for some for the local yokels having to live in that place with all the overbearing religion and fundamentalist politics, and the cheap retirees who can't afford to live in a better place.

Franklin really does have some weirdos. Secret militia types. Still think we are fighting the Civil War and they are Confederate soldiers, or living on a plantation. Hate anybody not like themselves. Jackson and Haywood are light years ahead of Macon in their thinking, manners, respectability, good living.

There is a reason you are not a police officer, entrance usually requires a high school diploma.
