Under Mark Richt, UGA has defeated Georgia Tech 12 out of 13 times and with the last five in a row. Georgia Tech has not beaten UGA at their home stadium since 1999. That was the “fumble” at the goal line by Jasper Sanks. I don’t care what those damn refs said. Jasper Sanks did not fumble that ball.
Anyhow, all is right in the world. Georgia wins again.
When I was growing up in Georgia, one of the local radio stations would play Arlo Guthrie’s “Alice’s Restaurant” in its entirety on Thanksgiving day at Noon. I was ecstatic to hear it again on River 97.1.
Here is it for you and your family to enjoy. Happy Thanksgiving!
This is only a part of the Federal Building in Gainesville, Georgia. This portion was built in 1910, and it served as the Post Office originally. The architect was James Knox Taylor. The courthouse which is behind the Post Office was built in 1936.
According to the U.S. General Service Administration website for this Federal Building,
The 1910 post office building consists of five bays on the north elevation. The three central bays are part of a slightly projecting pavilion. An arched entryway is in the center flanked by massive arched windows. Paired Ionic pilasters divide the arched openings and an unembellished frieze supports a denticulated cornice. The east and west facades of the 1910 building are similar to the end bays of the north facade. The pitched copper roof with eight eye windows was installed in the mid-1980′s and is a replacement for the original clay tile roof. The cast iron door surround, featuring fluted Doric columns supporting an ornamented frieze and denticulated pediment, is a distinctive feature of the facade.
According to the GeorgiaInfo website, the current Towns County Courthouse was built in 1964 in downtown Hiawassee. The designer was Henry M. Whitehead, Jr., and the architectural style employed was a modern one. Towns County’s first courthouse reportedly was built in the Hiawassee town square in 1857, which is about 500 feet from the current courthouse. The building served until 1905, when a new courthouse was completed, until it was replaced by the current one.
