Educators and community members were all smiles Tuesday morning when the freshly spruced gym (pictured) was unveiled at Franklin Elementary School. “It’s a location for everyone,” said Franklin Principal Casie Killgore, adding that Zumba and karate classes will be held in the evenings. The roughly $2 million project is equipped with a new ventilation system, suspended ceiling, and roofing, along with LED lights, two scoreboards, and floors that are “easy on the shin splints.” The funds came from Measure R, a $35 million bond passed in 2010. The money is also funding brand-new libraries at Washington and Adams elementary schools, which are expected to be completed this summer.
