J. C. And Frankie Jacobs celebrated their 65th wedding anniversary on June 4, 2014.

In another effort to make N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles (NCDMV) visits shorter and more efficient, the acceptance of credit and debit cards at the state’s license plate agencies and state registration offices has brought an easier, quicker way to pay registration renewals and vehicle property taxes.

On May 30, soon after debit card collections had been phased in statewide, 9,247 debit and credit card transactions remitted more than $1.4 million statewide. Of those, 6,130 transactions were delivered through debit cards and 3,117 came in using credit cards.

Acceptance of the cards arrived with the implementation of the “Tag and Tax” program last fall and was phased in across the state. The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles has been accepting MasterCard, Visa and Discover cards across the state since Dec. 17. Debit cards have been accepted statewide since May 27.


A brand new pergola has been installed in the Rankin Square Park in downtown Franklin.

Although Goshen was approached for the commission, Goshen ended up donating the bench.



The theme for this year’s Relay For Life was “All I Want For Christmas is a Cure for Cancer.”

Relay For Life is an annual event that is held to raise awareness and funds for the fight against cancer.

The Friday night event included special music, guest speakers, games and a Candlelight Ceremony.

Macon County is known district-wide for its high participation rate and vigorous fundraising. More than 40 teams raised more than $50,000 for the American Cancer Society.
