There will be plenty of Christmas events this weekend.

Cold, rainy weather has dampened a host of Christmas events the past couple of weeks in Franklin County.

Wayne Randall has announced he will retire at the end of the school year after the Board of Education informed him they would not renew his contract.

CARNESVILLE - Franklin County Schools Superintendent Wayne Randall is going to retire on May 30, 2019.

ROYSTON – Phase I of the site selection for the new Royston Elementary School has been completed.

White Christmases are great, but rainy ones just cause problems.

Wet weather – and maybe worse – has caused the rescheduling of two local Christmas parades.

Kalyn Jinks connects with a pitch in region tournament action Saturday against East Jackson.

The Franklin County Lady Lions will play for the Region 8AAA championship this afternoon in Jefferson.

Franklin will face either Jefferson or Jackson County at 4 p.m.

The Lady Lions will have to be beaten twice to lose the championship.

The Franklin County Lady Lions play the top two teams in 8AAA and the No. 3 team in Class AAAAAAA in consecutive days this week.

Franklin Fastpitch had a relatively easy week last week.

The Lady Lions went 3-0 with games on the road at Stephens County and Monroe Area and a home matchup with Gainesville.

The rivalry game with Stephens was not easy, nor was the Region 8AAA contest at Monroe.

But, if the comparison is with this week’s slate of games, there’s no doubt which is harder.

A completely new team of Lady Lions has taken the court this year to represent Franklin County High School.

The school’s very first varsity volleyball team began play Tuesday in Athens against Athens Christian and Oglethorpe County.

FCHS added the new sports program over the summer, with Michael Ritcey as the program’s first coach.
