The command of "pull" followed by shotgun blasts could be heard echoing off Rebie Road in Bleckley County Saturday as clay shoot benefiting Barry Jones was held. Named “Pulling for Barry,” the shoot was to help Jones with the expenses associated with battling cancer. It was organized by Cochran Bank president Mary Ann Young, who knew Jones from his time as an appraiser for the bank. Family members. friends, as well as members of the BC Shotgun Team were also involved. Besides the clay shoot, there was also a bake sale, T-Shirt sale, and gun raffle. Organizers said at least 60 people participated.
