I have enjoyed the Venture Local series written by Brittney Parker. From restaurants and artisans to merchants and manufacturing and from consignment shops all the way to fitness, I have learned about the businesses belonging to my friends and neighbors.

Each Venture Local article gave highlighted businesses a chance to shine. What a wonderful way to educate our community about the many opportunities available in Franklin!

With the recent emphasis on shopping locally, especially from the “Main Street” merchants, one merchant went above and beyond doing something for the merchants and residents of Macon County.

On Monday, Nov. 19, Tony Hernandez, owner of “Life's Bounty Bakery & Cafe” opened his Event Center on Main Street for a complete Thanksgiving feast. A full buffet with two pastas, turkey, dressing, potatoes, pot roast, meatloaf, lots of veggies, fresh baked rolls and a huge array of fabulous desserts. All of which was delicious.

During this busy season when we create so much extra wasteful “stuff,” thanks to Joel Ostroff and team at our Solid Waste Department who provide a convenient process to recycle.

The peppy little lady there, Linda, has sparkled up the “reception area” with colorful seasonal decorations (rescued from throwaways, of course) and always greets the customer with “let me help you,” taking a box of recyclables to deposit in the proper container.

Recently I saw an election bumper sticker that said “Osama Dead; Auto Industry Alive” and of course “Vote for Obama,” North Carolinians know that Osama Bin Laden is dead but al-Qaida is not. This was proven when al-Qaida attacked the U.S. in Benghazi, Libya where four Americans, including a U.S. Ambassador, were murdered by al-Qaida militants. For days and weeks Obama and high members of his administration tried to tell us the attack was not a planned al-Qaida attack but was spontaneous because of an anti-Islam video. We now know the truth ... al-Qaida is alive and well.
