Smiles a plenty, claps, and cheers for all that we were able to very much enjoy from Scotty and entire Overlook productions. You deserve your time to rest but remember some of us think that some of the best we saw came from you.

When and notice I didn't say If you have shows again. Our sad faces will from missing you guys will turn to smiles again. Supporters, fans and well wishers is what we all are. Until the curtain opens again.

We thank you for all you gave and look forward to the continued future of your great entertainment.

Thank you, God bless to you all.

Lisa Dollar — Franklin, N.C.

It’s that time again … time to “Shop Local and Give Local.” The group at Venture Local Franklin (VLF) are gearing up for their 10th Ca$h Mob on Saturday, Aug. 24, and they have their sights set on the Franklin Farmer’s Market. Not familiar with the Ca$h Mob? The idea is to encourage our local community to support Franklin’s small, locally owned businesses by stimulating the economy.

There are three simple rules that are in place to keep the “mob” in order. First: Commit to spend $20 cash (the stimulus); Second: You have to meet and chat with at least three new people (networking), you never know who you might run into at the Ca$h Mob; and the last and most important rule of all: Have fun!


We all have people we like and want to be around. If we’re really lucky, we might even be related to such people, or, in the case of a family like that of Claire and Joe Suminski, each member of the clan is fun to be around no matter the place or mood.

Every once in a while, however, a person comes along who lights up the room when she enters, who entertains simply because she thrives on being amongst us, and who has much to offer no matter how her day is going. As a community, we Maconians have been doubly blessed with two people like this: Nikki and Scotty Corbin.
