For years local officials and community leaders have attempted to address the lack of childcare availability in Macon County. Numerous challenges that accompany childcare facilities such as the cost of compliance with state regulations or the substantial startup costs associated with these facilities has lead to quality childcare remaining a farfetched “dream” for Macon County citizens. On Monday night however, the Town of Franklin took a giant leap towards making this “dream” become a reality.

The Town Board voted unanimously to approve the request for municipal sewer allocation to Macon Childcare and Educational Center, which is to be located at 2255 Old Murphy Road. The center will be a privately ran non-profit organization that will provide services to 120 children and generate approximately 35 new jobs for Macon County citizens.


Each May, National Foster Care Month provides an opportunity to shine a light on the experiences of children and youth in the foster care system.

Many communities are urgently seeking more everyday people to come forward to help these young people realize their full potential. No matter how much time you have to give, you have the power to do something positive that will change a lifetime for a young person in foster care. May is National Foster Care Month. Every state in our country has children in foster care. They belong to all of us. Now is the time to show we care.


The All Saints Episcopal community of St. Agnes and St. Cyprian's parish would like to thank all those who attended this year's inspirational Lenten Preaching Series.

Three hundred fifty-five dollars and 21 pounds of food was donated to CareNet and $147 was donated to Angel Hospice.


Thank you for all of the staff who helped pull off such an event. The teamwork and school pride that was fostered will only make our school a better place to be. Thank you as well to all who helped clean up. We are so grateful to all of you as well as those companies and organizations:
