Franklin aldermen grant license agreement to The Bowery for sidewalk on town property

On Monday night, to a standing room only crowd in town hall, the Franklin Board of Aldermen approved a license agreement to allow The Bowery Restaurant to keep a piece of sidewalk on town property.

Lumpkin Base Camp undergoes transformation

Macon’s best kept secret will soon be serving region’s youth again

For nearly a decade, an adventure camp stowed away in Tessentee in the southern part of Macon County went untouched. Bunk houses were beginning to crumble, the camp's fire ring was swallowed by poison ivy, and a high ropes course built in the ’70s blended in with native pines. What was once a destination for Boy and Girl Scout troops from across the region, had quickly tumbled into an overgrown wasteland with just a few years of neglect.

But all that has changed, and Macon County is well on its way to once again being home to one of western North Carolina's best kept secrets, a prime adventure camp abundant in natural resources.

Lazy Hiker Brewing Co. one step closer to opening its doors

Last week Porter Street was temporarily blocked as 11 new tanks were delivered to the Lazy Hiker Brewing Co., bringing the new business one step closer to opening its doors.

After having the 11 tanks custom-made for the brewery, they were delivered and set up in the warehouse in the back of Franklin's old town hall last week. Noah McIntee, head brewer for Franklin's first brewery, said with the addition of the tanks, just one more piece of the puzzle is needed to begin brewing exceptional craft beer.

"These 11 tanks put us a little closer to where we need to be to get the doors open and the beer flowing," said McIntee.
