YOU ARE THERE - August 27, 1975

Wind took off tine roofs of a home and barn one mile north of Soperton on Crooked Run.

A FHA grant of $60,000 was awarded to the development authority to construct a sewage system at the industrial park. It cost more money to maintain, and was hardly ever used.

A city resolution to pave Grasshopper Lane raised questions.

Windsor wrote about mistakes students make. Example: What was the cause of the Industrial Revolution? People stopped reproducing by hand and started reproducing by machinery.

Ricks wrote about wasteful federal spending, including horse race tracks at Hawkinsville and the grant for our industrial park's sewage system. 

New teachers included Howard Cochran and Phil Gay.

Missionary Connie Bowers and family were special guests at First Baptist Church. (Gene Bowers' brother.)

Traffic had diminished in town due to the opening of a stretch of I-16, but accidents continued at the GA 29/GA 46 intersection.
