Iotla Valley Elementary honored former principals, teachers and staff members last month.

With the closing of the Cowee Elementary School, the students and staff wanted to open the doors for these educators to be honored.

The visitors were invited to have lunch and then a program was presented by the students.

Special thanks was offered to each of them for helping in making memories that will be cherished in the historic school building.

Brittany Croston, recent graduate of Macon Early College has joined the Navy.

Her family writes, “The years have gone by quickly and now you are a beautiful young lady who has made all of us proud of who you are and what you have become.

You have achieved a lot in your young life that some people only dream about. You will be leaving soon for the Navy and for that we applaud you. We love you dearly.

Always trust in the Lord and his blessings will be upon you.



Ashley and Brad Hyder announce the birth of their son, Grayson Turner Hyder, born May 5, 2012, at 3:40 a.m. at Harris Regional in Sylva.

He weighed 8 lbs. 11 ounces, and was 20 inches long.

He is the grandson of Anne Hyder and the greatgrandson of Ruth O’Bryan of Franklin.

Franklin’s second annual Braveheart 5K run, and the first annual children’s Rob Roy 1K run, proved to be a success last Saturday, despite this year’s absent backdrop of the traditional Taste of Scotland festivities.

All in all, 84 people gathered on Main Street to participate in the event—a substantial drop from last year’s attendance of 144 runners. Of the jogging mob, some were adorned in the traditional garb of Scottish Highlanders, kilts and all.

Proceeds from the race went towards Franklin’s Scottish Tartans Museum, a non-profit organization dedicated to the history and traditions of Scottish Highland culture. The museum features exhibits of the Scottish migration to North Carolina, as well as information about clan ancestry and customs.
