Civil Air Patrol seeking sponsor

The Peachtree City Squadron of the Civil Air Patrol is in need of a sponsor.  The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has donated one of its trailers to the Squadron for use as a mission base.  Peachtree City’s Atlanta Regional Airport (Falcon Field) has provided the land necessary to set up the trailer.  The Squadron lacks only one item:  a long-term concrete trailer foundation.  The cost for laying the foundation is estimated from $4,000 to $5,000.  Because the Civil Air Patrol is a nonprofit organization, any sponsorship or donations will qualify for a 501(c)(3) tax exemption.  Read More»

PTC couple ‘had a ball’ on 11,000 mile trip to Alaska

Peachtree City resident Ray Besch (red cap) and Marietta resident Jim Donaldson take a minute to chat and admire Bear Glacier near Steward, British Columbia, during an intercontinental trek earlier this summer that took Ray and Teri Besch and Jim and Rose Donaldson on an 11,609-mile journey through 19 states and three provinces, all in a matter of 44 days. The  couples made the trip in their fully restored 1931 Model A coupes. Photo/Special.

It was not like a walk in the park but it was just as much fun. The difference was that, unlike a stroll across the grass and around a pond, Peachtree City residents Ray and Teri Besch in their fully restored 1931 Ford Model A Deluxe Coupe traveled 11,609 miles and visited 19 states in the United States and three provinces in Canada in 44 days.

“Every day was fun. If we had not done the trip and left tomorrow we’d do it again with few changes,” Ray said. “We had a ball.” Read More»

This time organizers were able to save about 17 flags that were in good enough condition to be cleaned and re-used. Photo/John Munford.

Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

A man took the bus to work. Since rain was predicted, he went to get the umbrella, but his wife stopped him.

“You have taken every umbrella we have and haven’t brought a single one back. I need that umbrella for my running around today. Just hope it doesn’t rain before you get to work.”

So he caught his bus, and by the time he was approaching his stop, the bottom fell out. It was pouring and he had a two-block walk to his office. Then he noticed a gentle Quaker sitting across from him with an umbrella propped in his seat. Read More»
