Harlem Quartet Wins Tri-State
HARLEM - The Harlem FFA Quartet won first place in Tri-State-Georgia, Florida and Alabama competition in Orlando, Fla., July 8.
Competing against winners from the other states, the Harlem group which won first place in Georgia in May, were victorious with their barber routine. Selections included, "The Animals are Coming," and "Aura Lee."
The Florida group, from the North Marion chapter, won second place. The Alabama competitors, from Redford, took the last position.
Upon winning the first position, the Harlem completed competition for the year. It was also the second consecutive year that the four had captured first place in their district.
I-20 Unearths unmarked graves in old family cemetery
Indentations in the sod and cedar trees - they usually add up to an old family burial plot and trouble and expense for the state.
"We've learned to be leery of them," Tom Lindsey of the State Highway Department said Tuesday.
Also, the grisly business of disinterring and re-interring the dead enters the picture.
"This is a thing that is avoided if at all possible," Lindsey commented.
"At the time we made the (initial) survey (for I-20), we did not know there was a family cemetery on the place Roy Lamkin said.
"The place" is the old Morris homelands, located about five miles west of Grovetown on the north side of the Appling Road.
Tanglewood: It's the place
What do you do with 88 Girl Scouts when it rains?
"The rain never stops us," Mrs. W. R. Wells, director of the Tanglewood Girl Scout Camp said Tuesday.
"We have some of the best chances for programs while it is raining," Mrs. Wells, or Nimbus as the campers call her said. "The rains gives them a chance to do skits in their units," Nimbus said.
She noted that it also gives an opportunity to for songs, leisurely reading and other activities they cannot fit into their busy fair weather schedule.
"They love to hike in the rain."
But, what happens when the sun's shining? Anything from boating to cooking and camping according to Mrs. Wells.
