Opinion Letters Franklin could make the world travel list

Well, I’ve seen most of what I thought could happen in my 82 years, but watching our winter wood pile grow beats all. Sunday while driving to church around 7:30, we passed the famous Franklin wood pile and guess what, they were making it grow bigger.

If I was the chamber of commerce here in Franklin I would install a row of benches across the street in front of the greenway so our tourists could watch the famous wood pile grow daily. Don’t know why or who got mister wood pile supplier upset, but right on brother, I am with you. Stand up for your rights.

I hope it gets bigger. You know I might even take pictures and sell post cards. Look, New York has the Empire State Building, sunny California has the Golden Gate Bridge, Miami has its beaches, so why can’t we here in Franklin have our wood pile, it will put us on the world travel list. And remember, it’s growing as we speak. By the way, I forgot, there food right next door for everybody.

Oh well, what’s next?

William Trapani — Franklin, N.C.
