March Madness!

March Madness!

Welcome to Kema's Bookstore Blog. Let's see - do we talk about March Madness or April Agony? March Madness would be basketball & April Agony would be tax deadlines. First off, give me your pick to win at The Big Dance - not that it has anything whatsoever to do with books, but I do love college BB at this time of year.  Have my TV going in the store, but I try to keep it on mute, unless it gets VERY intense. If you love basketball, you should read the Myron Bolitar series by Harlan Coben. Myron is a former college (Duke) basketball player - he gets drafted to the pros, but his knee is ruined in his rookie season, so he has to find another passion. He stays in the sports field by becoming a sports agent for rising stars - the books get into some of the same problems & issues that impact players of all sports when they get to the big leagues, but there's always a murder, assault, disappearance, etc. that Myron gets involved in.

GSBHT & PLAN Working to Create City Park in Gray

Gray Station Better Hometown and PLAN (People Looking Ahead Now) Cultural Arts & Leisure Committee are taking steps to develop a city park in Gray.  

The organizations would like to transform the old track and football field on Turnerwoods Road into a passive park for the entire community to enjoy.  A conceptual drawing was prepared by the Department of Community Affairs to give citizens an opportunity to see the possibilities of the green space.  

These organizations are very excited about the opportunities that TURNERWOODS PARK will bring to the community!

The Park will include: walking trails, recreation areas, a handicap-accessible playground, an area for pets to play, a pavilion area for cookouts, birthday parties, and other celebrations.

The benefits of having a Parks and Recreation facility in our community are numerous:

•     A place for fun, exercise, entertainment, and socializing
