Take some kid time this week
Spring break returns this week for many South Georgia schools. Both Valdosta and Lowndes County school systems are out through the week for the traditional spring break.
Spring Into Art: Valdosta’s talent center
Walking through the Annette Howell Turner Center for the Arts during Spring Into Art is always an amazing experience.
Hundreds of paintings, drawings, photographs meet with sculpture and ceramics and other art forms to create a kaleidoscope of creativity. Spring Into Art is the most democratic of art shows because whatever is entered, as long as it meets the show’s criteria, is displayed.
THUMBS UP: To Valdosta State University Blazers Baseball’s Matthew Fears. The senior second baseman was named the Georgia South Conference’s Player of the Week. Fears had 10 hits in 22 at-bats more than a week ago, hitting four doubles for a .636 slugging percentage. Adding in two walks, he reached base 50 percent of his plate appearances and didn’t strike out. The preseason all-conference performer scored four runs, drove in five more and swiped one bag.
MLK: A lasting legacy
“They killed the dreamer, but the dream lives on.” These words are a slogan of this evening’s scheduled “Musical Tribute in Memory of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968).”
Team Lean: Everybody wins
They came with a goal.
Murals: Lakeland’s blast from the past
Walk along the streets of Lakeland is unlike visiting the downtown of most other towns and cities. Lakeland is the embodiment of the town’s simultaneous past, present and future.
Church keeps an early Easter ‘Promise’
For more than 25 years, Park Avenue United Methodist Church has presented a passion play for the Easter season.
Originally called “God Hath Provided the Lamb,” the production has continued for the past several years as “The Promise.”
Boys & Girls Club: 70 years of making a difference
For 70 years, the Boys and Girls Club has been positively changing the lives of Valdosta and Lowndes County youths.
To celebrate this benchmark, the Boys and Girls Club of Valdosta hosts a community event at 7 p.m. Tuesday, April 1. Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal is scheduled to attend.
A look back
