Here is a link to check all schools in the state http://www.ajc.com/news/2012-georgia-... .. Lamar Reese did very well.. FYI.. Lee Co.. Highest was 98.4 and lowest was 73.4... Lee County does have it's problems, as do all schools, but it has never had them in the magnitude of DoCo.
Coachjohnson42.. Sounded to me like he learned all of the words.. He didn't have the lyrics written on his wrist only a few keywords, not the entire song.. And yes he learned how to read, write, perform in front of an audience and many other things during his formative years in Lee County. He had enough respect for the anthem that he wanted to be sure that he didn't mess up a very difficult song to perform.
"Nobody travels for country music?" Really.. Tell that to the folks at BamaJam and CMA festival.. CMA festival just had a record setting year with ticket sales and attendance..
Albany can make it happen.. With multi-genre bands/groups/artists there should be a lot of interest.. But it takes people coming together and not pushing folks away. FYI although the booking price for some acts is high, they will sometimes reduce their 'rate' for an event like this.. Good Luck Sam..
Thanks to all that made Saturday's races possible. From the year-long planning to the awesome stormy day event. Looking forward to next year's events.
Thanks to all the wonderful volunteers, race staff, Albany police, Turner Job Corps, and private citizens who came out in the nasty weather and supported the Albany Marathon.. You helped the runners to keep going in situations that were just not the best for running, but we made it through the rain and I'm looking forward to next year.
Well since you were given an advance notice of where the race would be run, you should have taken an alternate route to your job or just left home a little bit earlier as I'm sure you didn't have to wait longer than 5 minutes for the runners to pass. A lot of the local runners in the races are also Albany and Doughtery County Taxpayers.. With the amount of money that benefits Albany from the out-of-towners coming to run and with the money that is donated to a wonderful facility like Willson House, you should be proud of Albany.. This is something that do that is good.
A crank chair is a handicap wheelchair that has a bicycle pedal device that the user 'cranks' with their arms. The other handicap wheelchairs are pedaled.. someone who doesn't have use of their legs uses a crank chair.. It is so inspirational watching them compete.. They are Awesome..
Not going on at the same time.. Running starts at 6:45AM and the other festivities require the vendors to start setting up on Friday night.. And with the potential for the worst weathe in the early afternoon and evening not a good time to have a stage and vendor tents blowing around.. You don't play with Mother Nature.. She can be one mean 'lady'..
What's in a name anyways.. Does it really matter? The people who get out and support it are there for the family time, entertainment, food, etc.. So if the name is the problem, just stay home you would not enjoy it no matter what they called it.
