I am writing in response to last week’s article. I do agree with some of what you are saying. We do need more places to shop. I don't think they will let Home Depot or anything else like them because of Lowe’s. They are like Ingles. Why do we need three of them? We need better jobs for this town. Bring back the factories. We should take our tax monies to bring back jobs. If the county is not going to do that, then we should do it for them. They do not care if jobs leave this town. They only care about the out-of-towners. I, myself, like Roses, Family Dollar. That's why I like going to Sylva. Even though they have a Wal Mart they still have those two stores.
The county wants Franklin to be a retirement town. That's what they have wanted for years.
