Franklinton officials make denial official

FRANKLINTON -- Town commissioners committed to writing what they did in a vote last month when they denied a request to operate a gun range.
Following a more than two-hour public hearing on Feb. 21, the Franklinton Board of Commissioners refused to issue a special use permit to Tony Norton and Dan Stalfire, who want to operate a range on an 88.5 acre site north and west of town.
During the board's Tuesday night meeting, commissioners adopted a written statement that echoed that unanimous decision to deny the special use permit.

Ex-deputy's charges dismissed in Wake
Ex-deputy's charges dismissed in Wake

RALEIGH -- The case against a former sheriff's deputy accused of stalking and harassing a former girlfriend was dismissed in Wake County.
A Franklin County case borne from that investigation has been disposed of also, as long as Dwayne Collins completes mental health therapy.
The charges result from the response to a break-in call in the fall of 2015 that turned out to be a ruse.
On Nov. 9, 2015, according to Wake Forest authorities, Collins and a 25-year-old woman reported to police that someone broke into her home, stealing Collins' firearm and the woman's cellphone.

<i>Local schools host job fair to recruit talent</i>
Local schools host job fair to recruit talent

Franklin County Schools is hosting its third annual Teacher Job Fair at Franklinton High School on Saturday, March 25. However, this year, the school system's Human Resources department is recruiting more aggressively than ever as districts across North Carolina vie for qualifying candidates.
To compete with larger districts in the area and throughout the state, FCS will be offering on-site interviews with school principals and contingent contracts for same-day job offers to qualifying teachers. This is something more traditional job fairs have lacked in the past, school officials said.
