Lady Royals Win Region 3-AA Softball Title

Lady Royals Win Region 3-AA Softball Title

Last year, Bleckley and Southeast Bulloch met in the semifinals of the Region 3-AA playoffs.  BCHS run-ruled the Lady Jackets in both games.  A much tougher SEB team played BC Wednesday for the Region 3-AA championship.  But with tough defense and clutch hitting, the Lady Royals swept their way to a region title.

Marlee Bryan's third-inning single tied things in game one.  In the fourth, SEB had two on with no out.  After a sac bunt moved runners into scoring position, Bryan struck out the next two batters, ending the threat.  A double play in the fifth helped quell a bases loaded, no outs jam.  Bleckley would be unable to capitalize on a two on, two out, opportunity in their half of the fifth.

Hawkinsville Couple Has Pumpkins, Christmas Trees

Hawkinsville Couple Has Pumpkins,  Christmas Trees

Jim Wilson, hot, tired and in the middle of trimming and shaping Christmas trees on he and his wife's  60-acre farm in Hawkinsville, looked at his wife, and said, "You and your cotton-pickin' Christmas trees."

Wilson's wife of 45 years looked at her husband  and said, "Mine? These are your cotton-pickin' Christmas trees too." And hence the name of their residence at 120 Cordele Highway in Hawkinsville - "Our Cotton Pickin' Christmas Tree Farm and Pumpkin Patch."

A California-native, Linda Wilson and her husband, Jim, a Mississippi-native, are the parents of two boys and grandparents of four. 10 years ago, the couple was living in Connecticut, and nearing retirement, when Linda said, "We decided we wanted to move somewhere warmer and where taxes were lower."

Jim was retired from the Navy, and Linda had been a successful real estate agent with her own agency for more than 20 years. "It was time," she said.
