“This is a Rave for the nice young lady that works in the front office at the Tift County DFCS office.

On Saturday morning, I was driving my truck pulling a motorcycle trailer following the Freedom Seekers annual Toy Ride in Tifton. All of us (more than 100) were excited about the large turnout to make many underprivileged children have a joyous Christmas.
Letter to the Editor – Sign more of a distraction
It was my pleasure to visit your lovely city recently. Obviously, a number of your citizens care greatly about maintaining your fine architecture, shops and streetscapes. What's more, the cultural arts seem to be alive and thriving!
