OUR LOCAL HERO

REESE TINLEE

From Hueytown to Tinsel Town, Is there a Star among Us?

Saturday monrings for Hueytown’s Reese TinLee Franklin over

the years have been pretty typical. You may have spotted her

switch hitting at Allison Bonnet Park or maybe pulling a large

mouth bass from a super-secret spot along the Black Warrior

River. It’s safe to say that her roots run deep in Hueytown.

However, Franklin’s not-so-common passion might see her

trading the lights of the softball field for the flashing lights of

Paparazzi along the red carpet in Hollywood.

Reese is an actor. Apparently, a pretty good one. She made her

national acting debut in 2018 when she landed the costar role

of Young Samantha LaRusso, daughter of Ralp Macchio’s character

Daniel LaRusso in Cobra Kai, the sequel to The Karate Kid.

In doing so, Franklin received her first IMDb credit, becoming

SAG-AFTRA eligible and discovered a passion she is not likely to

abandon any time soon. “I love acting,” she says. “It’s creative,

fun – and sometimes even scary – all at the same time.”

Although Alabama is no film-industry magnet, Reese still finds

waysto pursue her passion and sharpen her skills. She recently

participated as one of the children in a classroom scene in the

filming Trading Paints, featuring John Travolta and Shania Twain.

“A lot of the movie was actually filmed in Hueytown and around

Alabama,” Franklin explains. “It was so exciting to get to do that.”

A member of Concord Elementary, Reese is the daughter of

JamieLee and Traci Franklin, long-time residents of Hueytown.

She is a member of the school drama club, Concord Stage

Sensation, and even performed with the Hueytown

High School Theater Department. She sings in

the North Highlands Baptist Church Kidz Choir

and performs each year in the Birmingham

Ballet presentation of The Nutcracker. When

asked if she wants to be a movie star, Reese

replied: “Who doesn’t want to be a movie star?”

GUEST CONTRIBUTOR

SPECIAL NEEDS PLAYGROUNDS

“Play gives children a chance to practice what they

are learning.” – Mr. Rogers

If there’s anything that we could all learn from Mr. Rogers,

it’s the importance of children simply playing. Playing

games teaches children most of what they know in early

life: how to do your best, how to get along, how to win

(and lose) with grace. Recently, the Hueytown Park and

Recreation Board embraced the importance of play for all

children when they celebrated the opening of an inclusive

playground area located inside the children’s playground

at Bud Newell Park on Brooklane Drive.

Inclusive playgrounds are becoming more and more

popular in schools and other areas serving the needs of

children with special needs. Inclusive parks and play areas

are specifically designed for these children to engage

others in a traditional playground setting while addressing

some of the limitations faced by special needs children.

Equipment in these parks have been modified to be

enjoyable for all children, but safe for

those who might face intellectual or

physical challenges.

Casey Wood Parsons, who spent

her own childhood in Hueytown,

presented the idea to the Parks

and Recreation Board. Parsons

has an Aunt with special needs.

As she was growing up Casey’s

grandmother wanted a place

that special needs kids could

play. The idea for for the park

grew from that dream and

Parsons went on to help coordinate

fundraising efforts. During

the construction of the special needs section of the park,

Hueytown officials also upgraded other areas of the park.
