Flip through Franklin Living

As September slowly winds down to October, we want to make sure you have taken the chance to feast your eyes on the September/October issue of Franklin Living magazine.

In this issue of Franklin Living, we’ve got all the cornerstones of life in Franklin County covered: we’ve got your good eats, your home comforts, your agricultural activities and your Saturday night entertainment.

We’re constantly workshopping ideas to bring even more goodness to Franklin Living, and debuting this month is a new endeavor to tempt your taste buds with the best recipes Franklin County has to offer. We feature a couple of menu favorites from local restaurant 24 Crossroads in Red Bay. If you’re feeling hungry, be sure to check out this issue’s recipes – gouda grits and pimiento cheese. Mmmmm. What restaurant should we feature next? Send a letter to the editor to tell your favorite eateries in FC.

Of course, delectable dishes aren’t the only feature that will make your mouth water. Life in Franklin County is moving on up with loft apartments in downtown Russellville. Although you might have seen the adorable Southern balconies as you cruised down main street, Franklin Living is giving you a chance to peek inside these upscale apartments and meet the people calling them home. We’re pretty sure you’ll understand why there is a waiting list to sign a lease for one these hip downtown dwellings.

Whether you want to get down on the farm or join the line dance, there’s a place for both in our corner of north Alabama.

Meet the Franklin County Junior Cattlemen, a program of the Franklin County Cattlemen’s Association. You won’t believe how smart – and passionate – these kids are about cattle farming and other agricultural pursuits.

Or, just like in Brooks and Dunn’s “Boot Scootin’ Boogie,” Mountain Valley Hee Haw is out in the country past the city limit sign, but you won’t find whiskey and smoke – just the family-friendly, twangy country the South is known for. The Welch family has kept this free venue cranking out live music every Saturday night since 1983, drawing the young and old alike to the homegrown venue for a clean good time. If you haven’t been out there on a Saturday evening, you’re really missing out.

As autumn quickly approaches – the first day is this Saturday, officially – there are plenty of fun community activities coming up, so be sure to mark your calendars. Check out What’s Happening for everything you can look forward to over the next couple of months in Franklin County, whether it’s a fall festival or a football game.

As always, we would love your suggestions for future feature stories we should include in Franklin Living. Contact me anytime at alison.james@fct.wpengine.com.
