franklin tn homes: A Snowy Night in Franklin TN - 01/21/11 07:40 AM
We have had our second big snow last night.  One thing we like to do when it snows is go downtown Franklin.  Usually the restaurants are open and we like to go to McCreary's Irish Pub.  They had music there last night, and it wasn't crowded.  The snow and downtown and the few people has kind of a magical feel.

franklin tn homes: Where you shop supports the community you shop in. - 08/10/10 03:10 AM
Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting a former mayor of Franklin, Tom Miller.  We chatted a bit.  We were at a retail establishment in Cool Springs, which is partially in the city of Franklin and partially in the city of Brentwood.  I think that when we shop in Cool Springs, we don't think very much about the town that receives the benefit of our sales tax dollars. 
Tom commented that when he was Mayor, he was very conciencous to shop in Franklin whenever possible.  He was literally putting money into the city's budget when he did that.  He still thinks … (4 comments)
