For more information, call Karen Wisman at (828)349-2059.

Justin Mckenzie recently completed the bricklaying program at LBJ and has been accepted into the TCU/IAM Advanced Training Program in St. Paul, Minn., where he will study in the customer service representative field.

“I’ve worked for everything I achieved at LBJ. All they (staff) asked me to do is abide by the rules. They made sure that I was in a safe and secure environment and nudged me with words of encouragement when I got off track. So, in essence, I owe them a gratitude of thanks for all their support. Thanks, LBJ,” said Mckenzie.


Newer Rotary Club of Franklin members Amy Manshack, Sam Blasingame, Tammy Farrell, Marvin Ramsey and Chris Baldwin were all recognized for their efforts this past year with the club's Four- Way Test Program.






Every Christmas local churches, organizations and individuals all work together to collect items for Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child.

Operation Christmas Child (OCC) is known for collecting much needed items like toothbrushes and small toys for children around the world. Millions of Americans sign on to pack a shoebox to send off each year. But what happens to that shoebox? Where does it go and who does it help, and what does that child’s face looks like when they open it? Macon County resident Sierra Womack will get the chance to find out.

Womack has been packing shoeboxes for OCC since she was in high school and has always thought she would like to actually be able to help give out the boxes one day. So a couple of years ago, when OCC started allowing year round volunteers to apply to go on distribution trips, Womack began looking into the possibility.
