As Director of Bands at Colquitt County High School, I would like to thank the community for reaching out to our band students on Wednesday, Nov 21st. About 40 students participated in the traditional Bagging for Tips at Harvery's and this year we added Winn Dixie. Students are raising money to go on their spring trip to Orlando and Daytona.
They will participate in the pre-ceremonies to the Daytona 500, go to the race, spend a day at Universal in Orlando, go see the Amazing Blue Man Group, and get to race small stock cars while on the trip.
The students really enjoyed their time at the stores and were very grateful for all donations! We have had an outstanding year supporting our Packer Nation and look forward to a new era next year- which will bring exciting modern music; explosive drum solos; dancing and newly choreographed flag work; maybe even some of the whole band dancing... and most of all exciting music for the community to enjoy under our Friday Night Lights!
It is our goal as a staff to bring entertainment to the field while teaching our students of CCHS pride, honor, dedication. Thank you, again, for all of your support. We look forward to seeing you at the grocery stores again the Saturday before Christmas.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and let's make sure we all remember the real reason for the season.

Tribute to my dad
Growing up in South Georgia every little girl thinks of their daddy as their prince; I am no different. And I believe his years of sacrifice, dedication and unconditional love for me is a story worth telling.

Oh joy! The Turtle Man will return
Great news! The Turtle Man is coming back for another season on television!
And yes, I’m being a little facetious here. It’s a ridiculous show, but apparently it’s entertainment for some people.
The kind of stuff that happens in dictatorships
Distrust of government secrecy has been elevated to an exceptional level with the disclosure the Justice Department covertly examined two months of Associated Press phone records to determine who leaked details to the AP about a foiled terrorist plot.

And would you like fries with that?
Most of us have seen the Chick-fil-A signs that urge us to “eat more chicken.” So would you ever expect to see one that says, “eat more crickets?”

Something to enjoy
On Sunday I had the pleasure of witnessing an Atlanta Braves game up close and in person. I have been to a Braves game before but every time always feels like the first.
