America has a long and proud tradition of volunteer service and the same hold true for the Franklin area. Duke Power wants to recognize these efforts by honoring a citizen in the community with the Duke Power Citizenship and Service Award.

In addition to the Duke Award, nominations are also being accepted for the Citizen of the Year and Organization of the Year. The awards will be presented during the Banquet in late January, 2012. This banquet will combine the former Annual Awards &Installation Banquet and the Chamber’s Annual Meeting. A dinner will be served and tickets are available.


Sylva’s annual Christmas parade welcomed the holiday season last Saturday with festive music, dancers, and of course, Santa Claus.

“I was thrilled with the outcome,” said Paige Roberson, Main Street’s Economic Development Director. “We had an outstanding turnout of community members and citizens. The people who came really demonstrated the spirit of our community.”

Sylva’s newest trio, SCC’s new President, Dr. Don Tomas; WCU’s new Chancellor, Dr. David Belcher; and Jackson County school’s new Superintendent, Mike Murray, were all honored as the parade’s Grand Marshals.
