March 26, 1975
Cable TV came to Soperton, and the first channels were not from satellite. They were Georgia broadcast channels with signal caught by antennae on a 400 ft tower, hauled from Texas and put up this week 35 years ago. Your trusty photographer, although afraid of heights, went to the top on a very cloudy day to capture the view. He made two shots, the film ran out, and he forgot to carry a spare roll.
Others that week: Mrs. Rita Burke with her blooming tulips, Herbert Burns with a couple of captured beavers, a slight accident near Cameron, coloring contest winners, a new tobacco curer being unloaded from rail car, school bus trip.
