Some of Hearne’s businesses (particularly hotels, restaurants, and gas/convenience stores) have been busy in recent weeks. First, there was the Robertson County Fair. Then, there was Aggie Parents’ Weekend. Next, Franklin hosted the National Boys’ & Girls’ Continental Little Dribblers’ Tournament. While these periodic events are great income, sales tax, and hotel/motel tax generators, the city needs something that will attract people to our town for various reasons on an on-going basis. A meetings, events, and training facility would work to increase the numbers of people who are spending money in Hearne. This would help continue to improve Hearne’s growing economy.
