Jeffrey A. Cloer, an eighthgeneration Franklin native, was sworn in as a member of Southwestern Community College’s Board of Trustees on Monday, Oct. 7.

An agent with Wayah Insurance, Cloer was appointed as a trustee by the Macon County Board of Commissioners to fill the position Melvin “Pete” Penland held from September 1997 until this June.

“I was honored and flattered that I was asked to serve in this capacity,” Cloer said.


Community involvement is part of the business plan.

The new owners of the Mill Creek Country Club are anxious to get started on their latest project. The Mill Creek Country Club will now be called the Golf Club at Mill Creek according to new owner Keith Munger. He, along with his brother, Tony, and Tony's wife, Brenda, purchased the property from Macon Bank, who held the loan on the foreclosed property.

The Munger brothers are from Macon County and Brenda moved here when she was a teenager. After college, the now married couple, Tony and Brenda constructed and managed golf courses around the southeast while brother Keith managed a network of Hospice Houses throughout Georgia and currently resides in Savannah, Georgia.


Macon County Business Development Center fostering economic growth

Since 2009, the Macon County Business Development Center (BDC) has been working to empower promising entrepreneurs with good ideas by offering space, tools, and opportunities needed to build successful businesses in the community.


Venture Local Franklin's cash mob stormed Mossy Oak on Main Street recently.

With 44 mobsters, members of the community pledged to spend $20 at the locally owned business.

The idea of the cash mobs is to encourage the community to support Franklin's small, locally owned businesses by spending their money ($20 minimum commitment), en masse, to give the business owner a little bit of an economic boost.
