New American Flag presented to the Macon County Courthouse

The Ladies Auxiliary of the American Legion Post 108 presented a new American Flag at the Macon County Courthouse on Sunday, Dec. 7 at 2 p.m. in honor of Pearl Harbor Day. Commissioners Ronnie Beale and Gary Shields were on hand to receive the flag. Members of the American Legion Post 108 raised the flag on the flag pole at the Macon County Courthouse.

Attending the ceremony were Ronnie Beale, Gary Shields, Larry & Marilyn White, Art Pittman, Scottie Thomas, Barb and Carl Moyer, Louise Womack, Ken and Audrey Carpenter, Susie Hallern, Mike Coates, Christine Jason - president of the American Legion Auxiliary, Derek Roland, Frank Hunter, Bob & Dutch Slicer and John and Dorothy Crawford.

Commissioners hear results of revaluation

Beginning next July, Macon County residents can expect to see on average a 14.8 percent decrease in their property value due to the 2015 tax revaluation. The change in value, which varies based on type of property as well as location within Macon County, will bring Macon County to a .33 millage rate per $100 in Macon County. As it stands right now, at .27 millage rate per $100, Macon County has the lowest property tax rate in the state. The increase will result in Macon County now being the 5th lowest in the state.

Property tax rates need to produce about $25 million annually in order for the county to maintain a revenue neutral budget and be able to provide the current level of services to citizens.

Franklin’s perfect season comes to an end

FHS falls in round 4, still makes school history

The Franklin High School varsity football team's season came to an end last Friday night in the fourth round of the 2AA state playoffs. The Panthers hit the road to take on the undefeated East Lincoln Mustangs on their home field. Largely considered the underdog in the contest, the Panthers refused to go down without a fight.

“The team we played had a Division 1 quarterback, a few other Division 1 players so we knew that they were a really tough team,” said head coach Josh Brooks.
