YOUNGSVILLE -- The Youngsville Woman's Club will host Murdoch Center at its Oct. 16 meeting, which will begin at 6:45 p.m. at the Youngsville Community House on East Main Street

History was both revisited and recreated last Saturday -- and it was one of the best events of its type I've ever seen.
It was a debate between Thomas Jefferson and Alexander Hamilton and it brought into sharp focus the fine points of history that may be a little fuzzy for many of us.
The re-creation was the work of two veteran actors, both of whom were excellent, despite the challenges of working outdoors with all the background noise, especially a rock band that had its amps cranked skyward.
Turn on the lights. Clean your glasses. Make sure you're aware of what's happening around you -- but even that may become more difficult thanks to some in the North Carolina General Assembly.
Some in the legislature have long wanted to keep you in the dark where the actions of your government are concerned -- and seem to hope that "out of sight, out of mind" will somehow be good for North Carolina. (Or, at least good for them personally.)
A number of towns in Franklin County could very well be in line for face lifts in November.
If nothing else, residents, voters and others with interests in Bunn, Franklinton and Louisburg will get a chance to see those new faces beginning next week.
That's when Unity and the Surrounding Churches will hold a candidates forum, featuring those running for office in Franklinton.
In that western Franklin County town, six people are running for three available seats.
It's not every day that we get to tell a community that we are bringing care back, but that's exactly what we did when the Franklin County Board of Commissioners voted unanimously to move forward with a lease agreement that will allow Maria Parham Health, Duke LifePoint Healthcare to re-open Franklin Medical Center.
On behalf of Maria Parham, I can tell you that we are all so excited to be partnering with the Franklin County leaders, and we are honored that you have chosen to entrust the future of healthcare in Franklin County to our team.
Tucked away down a long hallway at Franklinton High School are a group of students learning by leading.
The class is called Journalism One; their big project is the student yearbook. But there is a lot more to this class than compiling some pictures into a hard-bound book.
Sean Bachand teaches the class.
ROCKY MOUNT -- Franklinton's first-ever football test in the Big East Conference was a lofty one as the Red Rams traveled to Rocky Mount High School last Friday to tangle with a Gryphon club that has made back-to-back appearances in the state finals -- including a championship in 2015.
But even though the Gryphons are in a bit of a rebuilding mode this fall, they are still a formidable foe -- as evidenced by RM's 48-14 home decision over Franklinton in the league opener for both clubs.
WILSON -- Big East Conference schools have been a little slow in updating their banners at gymnasiums, most of which feature the Nash Central Bulldogs' flag still on the wall, along with an outdated Big East logo that features a map that connects Wilson and Nash Counties -- with no outline of Franklin County.
But while Franklinton's new presence in the Big East might not be represented in conference swag, it has certainly been noticed by the league's volleyball coaches and players.
LOUISBURG -- The bye week couldn't have arrived at a better time for the Louisburg High School football squad.
LHS was able to gain a measure of rest last week after brutal back-to-back tests against powers Roanoke Rapids and South Granville -- along with a tough loss at Northern Vance -- in Northern Carolina Conference action.
LOUISBURG -- Lousiburg College has picked up its share of important victories during the brief history of the school's football program.

LOUISBURG -- Perfection is now down to one for the Louisburg High School volleyball squad.
Looking to pick up their second consecutive undefeated regular season, the Lady Warriors took a key step toward that goal Tuesday by rolling past Northern Carolina Conference and backyard rival Bunn at the LHS Gymnasium.
CREEDMOOR -- A single opponent -- albeit a powerful one -- stood in the way of Louisburg's opportunity to clinch the Northern Carolina Conference Championship last Saturday in a rare weekend night volleyball showdown.
