Franklin's war of words continues

As the fundraising to retire the battlefield golf course continues, so does the flow of letters to the editor.

Pro: The preservation community is not against the country club members. The country club sold the property. The current owner purchased the property to prevent it from becoming a residential development. The current owner has now offered it for sale. And, thank goodness, the preservation community has stepped up.

Con: ... there are more than 600 rounds of golf at no cost to the golf teams of Franklin, Centennial and Brentwood high schools. If this becomes a so-called battlefield, where are these young boys and girls going to practice their golf?

Pro: I submit that this expenditure by the city of Franklin may well be one of the most appropriate expenditures of our taxpayer dollars, supporting more needs of a greater society, than any ever attempted by our city government.
