STAND BACK, FRANKLIN! IT'S A STAMPEDE!


THAT'S RIGHT. A STAMPEDE!

 

 

 


 



A WAVE!







A STORM OF HUMANITY!







THE LIKES OF WHICH HAS NEVER BEEN SEEN IN FRANKLIN!







Could the city of Franklin, masters at talking companies out of coming here to do business, have finally turned the corner and found the magic solution to attracting employers and new jobs?

This is incredible, ladies and gentlemen.

Franklin stumbles onto what it considers pure genius.

Such a development calls for a major annoucement.






Franklin
has news, NEWS I tell you!

And whenever Franklin has news, any Franklin official knows the call has to be made. 







My goodness, he's just got to answer.

It's our desperate time of need.

Please call.

Please!

Where is he?

Where, oh, where could he be?






This is Rick Romano, ace FranklinNOW reporter. How can I be of assistance?

Saints preserve us. Thank God you called. Mother Macree. And not a moment too soon. Here’s the deal, Rick. We’ve got some wonderful ideas to jump start our economy, great ideas, fabulous ideas. And you’re going to get first crack at the story.

Hey, thanks, guys. Give it to me and it’s as good as published. Whatcha got?


It doesn’t take long before Franklin’s ace has…






The scoop!

Seems the super-keen, highly skilled brain trust that’s been charged with boosting economic development in Franklin has, indeed, agreed upon a strategy.

Are you ready?

Romano reports these rocket scientists are suggesting Franklin use…

Brochures to tell the world how great we are.

But not just any brochures.

Remember….







He's got all the details.

These brochures according to the Rickster are...

"glossy" brochures.

Repeat after me.

OOOHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!

And that's not all.

We're going to create a special website, too.

You read correctly.

A website.

Concession: I am unaware if an abacus, slide rule, or rickshaw was used during the all- important final decision-making process.

Maybe, emphasize maybe, I'm not anywhere near as sharp as the folks running our city like Ken Skowronski, but they were obviously impressed because as ace reporter Romano informed, the Franklin aldermen voted to spend a few thousand bucks on this approach.

What's that you say?

Spend?

Spend money?

Alderman Tim Solomon is still drooling about his vote.

And so, here come all those businesspeople and entrepreneurs just waiting to knock down the doors of the city limits to set up shop here...


















NOT!

A joke.

Lame.

Sorry to burst the bubble. In reality, this isn't all that funny. Actually it's sad that our elected officials and people the mayor has appointed to work on the critical mission of job creation are clueless as to what's to be done.

Again, I offer free advice knowing it has about as much chance of consideration as me winning tonight's $550-million Powerball jackpot.
