You can help stop state's stealth attack on U.S. 401
You can help stop state's stealth attack on U.S. 401

This is probably a terrible thing to ask while most of our readers are thinking about Turkey Day's main course and which side dishes not only go with the traditional dinner but also provide the fuel for a mega-shopping trip on Friday.
But it's an important request -- and that's especially true if you ever drive U.S. 401 between Louisburg and Raleigh. And who doesn't, even if they hate that road?

Thanksgiving is a great time to reach out to others

Don't look now but Turkey Day is just about upon us!
In just a day -- or perhaps already in some homes where cooks have begun to prepare food well in advance -- ovens will be heated up, cooktops filled with pots and pans and everyone will be eagerly awaiting the fun, food and fellowship which comes with one of this country's favorite holidays, Thanksgiving.

F'ton and Franklin County; the water saga continues

Finding peace just standing in the rain

Have you ever stood in the pouring rain to experience just the wonder of it? Have you felt its natural power and beauty? To many, this may come as an odd or even strange question.
Most today seeing someone doing this would probably say, "Look, he or she is not even smart enough to get in out of the rain." They may laugh a bit judging, never taking the time to really see the person or the rain. They see only what they want to see.

'Talking points' proposed for responses to NCDOT about strategic corridors

It can be difficult to express the important points of a highway for those of us not in the transportation business.
To help with that, these points were developed by Gary Faulkner, a retired DOT traffic engineer from Franklin County, who has been a driving force behind local efforts to improve U.S. 401 in Franklin County.
He is presenting them to help focus on the highway's importance -- and is making them available to anyone who wants to use them in their responses to the state.
