Cochran Woman Plans 'Streakin' For 'Hooters' Event

Cochran Woman Plans 'Streakin' For 'Hooters' Event

Yes, you read it right. There is a group of ladies from Pulaski, Bleckley, Dodge, Houston, Bibb and Twiggs counties who will be going streakin' from 2 to 6 p.m. Oct. 9, and what a sight that will be.

Streakin' with pink in their hair as they take a stand against breast cancer during breast cancer awareness month.

Crystal Jackson Bambrough, owner and operator of CryStyle's Salon in Cochran, is sponsoring the event for the second year in a row. “We will be putting pink streaks in everyone's hair to celebrate breast cancer awareness month. The streaks cost $10 and the money raised will be donated to a local woman who has recently been diagnosed with breast cancer, and is in the middle of treatments and surgeries.” There will be light refreshments and other gifts available for purchase, and the first 25 breast cancer survivors will receive a “special little gift.”

Dodge Co. Woman Makes Plarn Bags for Operation Christmas Child

Dodge Co. Woman Makes Plarn Bags for Operation Christmas Child

Marilynn Sanders sits at her kitchen table a creation of red and white in front of her and a plastic crochet needle in her hand. She is doing a single crochet stitch, with her ball of yarn laying on the table beside her.

Her dogs, Katie and Bo, lay on the floor underneath th kitchen table.

Upon closer inspection of the bag that Sanders is crocheting, a revelation hits the onlooker. The yarn isn't yarn – well, not the yarn that one stereotypically would expect to see someone crocheting from.

Sanders' ball of yarn is made of plastic – recycled plastic shopping bags. This one from Target. This yarn is called plarn, and is made out of cutting strips from recycled shopping bags and garbage bags.
