Franklin writer interviews ghost

As part of the ongoing struggle over the conversion of a Franklin country club to battlefield parkland, local columnist Steve Hinesly stages a conversation with a Confederate ghost:

"Fact is, this here golfin’ wasn’t such a bad thing to have here for the past 35 years. Sure, there’s some cussing here and again, maybe even throwing these here clubs they use on occasion, but mostly they where having a durn good time, and keepin’ the land green and open."

Artemus Ward's got nothing on ole Steve.
