Our county faced many difficulttimes in 2011, but it is my belief that those trials andtribulations have made us all stronger and united thiscommunity like no time before.</p><p>We will always mourn those lost in the tragic storms ofApril 27, 2011, but we should also never forget thosewho gave so freely of themselves to help their neighborsin their greatest time of need.</p><p>In the days following the storm and the immediateaftermath, it was amazing to see Franklin County resi-dents join hand in hand to clean up and re-build. It wasalso impressive to hear people who traveled from out-side this area to help talk about the strength and com-passion Franklin Countians had for one another.</p><p>So, despite challenges that are still certainly ahead,there is great reason to believe that better times lieahead in 2012.</p><p>From my family to yours, thank you all for making thisthe community that it is.
