There’s Rodeo Lake Park running Friday and Saturday evenings at Raisin’ Cane. Horses, cattle, cowboys and numerous other activities have organizers hoping to attract a stampede of community participation.

    THUMBS UP: To Air Force Lt. Col. David Rayman. The 75th Fighter Squadron commander recently logged 3,000 flight hours in the A-10C Thunderbolt II. A rare feat. In presenting a Moody Air Force Base story on his accomplishment in The Times, it’s good to see the face and know the name of one of the many pilots who cross our South Georgia skies. Congratulations on 3,000 and thank you for your service.
