Thumbs up

VALDOSTA — THUMBS UP: To Kelly Barcol, the area preacher who will literally fight to raise funds for his church. At 44, the House of Joy pastor will compete against a 26-year-old in the Bud Light Winter Heat next weekend. Heat promoter James Corbett has promised all of the event’s proceeds to the House of Joy. Through faith and endurance, Barcol proves that age is just a number.

During the past seven years, Valdosta School of Ballet and VSU Theatre & Dance have raised nearly $50,000 in scholarship money.

    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.
