The sight of brightly colored pinwheels blowing in the breeze brings back happy memories of childhood days when no one else in the entire world was as important and special and loved as you. It is for the sake of children and building happy childhood memories that KIDS Place is promoting Pinwheels for Prevention during April for Child Abuse Prevention Month.

“We are very excited about this year’s awareness campaign,” said Alisa W. Ashe, KIDS Place Executive Director. KIDS Place is collaborating with 33 local businesses, churches, and other agencies to display almost 2,000 pinwheels in Franklin.


The Mr. and Miss FHS dance was held toward the end of March at the Franklin High School gymnasium.

Students awarded the honors to Seniors Mr. Ben Carrion and Miss Cori Sellers.








Middle school students take top honors in Athens

Eight projects and 11 competitors from Rabun Gap-Nacoochee Middle School attended the Regional Science Fair competition held at the Athens’ Technical Academy.

There were approximately 100 projects and 139 students on hand at the event, and many of the RGNS middle school students took home top honors in their category.




Cody Tiger, the youngest participant and scholarship recipient of the 4th Annual Extreme Leather Workshop spent an amazing weekend with many gifted and talented leather crafters from around the country. The Hides to Art workshop was held at the Biltmore Doubletree Hotel in Asheville, March 25-27, and Cody Tiger is still smiling about it.

Through a chance encounter at Cartoogechaye Baptist Church in early fall, Tiger met Ken Smith and the two struck up a conversation about Smith’s handmade leather bible case.
