The Franklin Chamber of Commerce recently held a ribbon cutting at Deb’s Cats ‘N’ Quilts, to celebrate a major expansion to the store located at 106 W. Palmer Street. The ribbon was cut by shop owner Deb Heatherly and her husband, Phillip. Present to view the cutting were chamber board members, shop staff and customers thrilled with the new space.

Deb’s has been in this location for more than five years with approx. 1650 sq. ft. of retail space. The recent expansion added 2,300 sq. ft. more, giving them almost 4,000 sq. ft. total. New fabric lines were added and the classroom more than tripled in size, which was a big hit with staff and customers alike.

Ordinarily, the federal income tax deadline is April 15; but this year the IRS has granted a reprieve until April 18. Nevertheless, here’s why procrastinating is a bad idea:


Taxpayers who owe taxes may be relieved to know that there are some options for those who owe and can’t afford to pay the full amount right away. Here are the top things the IRS wants you to know if you need more time to pay your taxes.

• Taxpayers who are unable to pay all taxes due are encouraged to pay as much as possible. By paying as much as possible now, the amount of interest and penalties owed will be less.


High Impact Ordinance review will not be a priority for the board
