After Books Unlimited fell victim to Franklin’s mob last weekend and chose to ‘pay it forward’ by donating books to Read2Me, Nancy Paris of Peoples (L) and Suzanne Harouff of Books Unlimited drew the next Cash Mob recipient.

Franklin Office and Art Supply will be mobbed on Saturday, Oct. 13, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

John Yermack with Franklin Office and Art Supply said, “I'm honored that someone entered our name.” He will “pay it forward” to CareNet.

“It's exciting to see these Cash Mobs supporting businesses all over Franklin,” said Paris.

Angel Medical Center (AMC) formally welcomed its new CEO Jim Bross at a reception held on the lawn at Snow Hill Inn Saturday. By invitation only, guests were treated to a prime rib dinner prepared by the catering arm of AMC.

Jan Unger, chairman of the board of trustees, introduced Bross’ daughter Angie who spoke of her dad’s commitment to God, family and friends, and his unswerving allegiance to the Clemson Tigers. “He is the hardest worker I know,” she said.


The Franklin Tourism Development Authority (TDA) heard updates from multiple TDA funded projects as well as considered grant requests for upcoming tourism boosting events in Franklin.

No doubt many wannabe first-time homebuyers have been sitting on the sidelines of the volatile housing market, unsure when or how to enter the game. If that describes you, you're probably fortunate to have missed out on the housing bubble and lax lending standards of a few years ago, when millions of people took out mortgages they couldn't afford – or understand.

Homeownership is a long-term commitment filled with expenses (both expected and unexpected) and responsibilities. The upsides – not to mention the tax advantages – are why approximately two-thirds of Americans own instead of renting. But homeownership is not always right for everyone or at every stage of life.
