Maleeah Langstaff and the Macon Middle School Track Team won first place in a meet on Tuesday, April 9, in Rabun County, Georgia.

Langstaff set a new Macon Middle School High Jump record by jumping 4'10".

The previous school record stood at 4'8".


FORT WORTH, Tex.— The record book will say that Kyle Busch won the NRA 500 on Saturday night. If truth be known, Busch started the process on Friday afternoon and applied the coup de grace with 20 laps left on Saturday evening.

Yes, Busch capped a perfect weekend when he took the checkered flag .508 seconds ahead of runner-up Martin Truex Jr. But Busch’s first NASCAR Sprint Cup Series victory at Texas, his second of the season and the 26th of his career started with a pole-winning run on Friday that afforded him the luxury of picking the No. 1 pit stall.


Baseball: The Franklin High School Varsity Baseball Team added to its record another loss as they hosted the Tuscola Mountaineers Tuesday at the Macon Middle School field. The game was a scoreless affair until the third inning when the Mountaineers put up three runs, to make it a 3-0 game after the Panthers couldn't match the score. Tuscola added two more runs in the fifth, eventually leading to the shut out and another Panther loss, 5-0. This puts the Panther's record at 3-8 for the season.

The Panthers travelled to Hayesville yesterday to take on the undefeated Yellow Jackets.


Angel Medical Center (AMC) hosted its third annual “Macon Your Heart Beat” 5K (3.2 mile) walk/run event Saturday at the Greenway located in Franklin. This year's event also hosted an 8K (5 mile) run.

People of all ages and from all walks of life participated in the event. Participants came from Franklin and the surrounding areas to compete for a good cause. The proceeds that were collected will be attributed to a scholarship fund for Cardiac & Pulmonary Rehabilitation patients who would not otherwise be able to afford to participate in the program.
