Franklin resident Dave Linn has made a name for himself helping local nonprofits organize fundraising events through his business, Bringing it Life Productions. From races to benefit local nonprofits such as the annual Father's Day weekend Braveheart 5k for the Scottish Tartan Museum, to monthly Lip Sync Battles at the Rathskellar Coffee Haus to benefit charities such as Relay for Life, Linn's events not only help organizations dedicated to giving back to the community, but they have also become huge tourist attractions for people visiting Franklin.

Last Saturday's race was a little more special for Linn than the others he puts on throughout the year. The second annual ’80s Flashback 8K was held along The Greenway in Franklin and 100 percent of proceeds, about $1,000, was donated to the Shriners Hospital of Greenville.


A few days after seeing a bicycle for sale on a Facebook yard sale page that looked remarkably like the one Ann Antes got her seven-year-old son Cameron for Christmas, Ann realized that it was in fact her son's bike. Someone had stolen Cameron's bicycle and sold it for a some quick cash, $20, to be exact.

“Cameron and his dad came inside from attempting to play and Cameron told me his bike was not outside or in the shed,” said Ann. “My husband confirmed it was nowhere to be found. So after thinking on it a few days, I decided to post a small video of him riding it, with this plea:

"So recently my son's bike was stolen. It was posted here and on a few other yard sale sights. If you purchased this bike for the $20 that it was listed for I would gladly give your money back to you for the return of my baby boy's bike. This is all he ever has to do and he is sad it was taken. There is one thing on the bike that will prove it to be ours. Theft is so bad anymore. If there is a decent person left please pm me. Thank you."


Students from across southeast visit Macon County

For the last quarter century, students from across the country have been signing up to participate in service projects in communities declaring themselves as 'World Changers."

An outreach ministry of Life- Way Christian Resources, World Changers has been spending summers for the last 25 years partnering with cities and their residents to complete much needed construction projects ranging from painting houses to putting on new roofs. The projects improve homes for the elderly, disabled, and for others who would not normally be able to do the work on their own, and comes at no charge for the community.
