YOU ARE THERE - October 8, 1980

The City of Soperton mailed tax notices early. The usual 10 mill tax had been reduced to 5 mills due to the roll back from the local Option Sales Tax.

City election was announced with Posts 1 and 2 and the Mayoralty to be considered. Incumbents were Reginald E. Evans, Curtis Thigpen, and Frank Radford, Jr.

The First Baptist Church was accepting bids for the removal of the two-story C. D. Williams House, aka Ricks Boarding House. (The vacant lot where the three crosses are located).

A November 9 wedding was announced for Melanie Mimbs and Phillip Warnock.

Eighth grade class officers: President Brad Braddy, Vice President Francois Johnson, Secretary-Treasurer Samantha Harden, and Reporter Jeffry Palmer.

The Braddy/Sumnerr children showed off a big toadstool.

The Get Out To Vote seminar was held by the Georgia Coalition of Black Women.

Coach Howard Cochran, who had departed Treutlen County, scheduled a football game with his friend Coach Andy Henderson of Blackshear.  The Vikings were clobbered, 35-0.
