It's just wall-to-wall people. I just think it's wonderful," said Tom Hanks, executive officer of the Franklin County Builders Association. Now in its 28th year, the show, sponsored by the association, continues to draw between 13,000 to 15,000 visitors eager to research landscaping, remodeling and financial management.

Construction crews and rows of orange cones running down the center of Main Street in Hancock soon will give way to thousands of flowers and newly paved streets and sidewalks. The effort to rehabilitate the half-mile stretch of Main Street between Methodist and Church streets is a part of the Governor's Neighborhood Conservation Program, which put $1.3 million toward the project. "We could not afford to do it ourselves," said Lou Close, Hancock's town manager. The project will replace crumbling brick sidewalks with new concrete ones and make walkways in front of the stores accessible to the handicapped, said Rose Muhlhausen, a spokeswoman for the State Highway Administration.
