As Director of Bands at Colquitt County High School, I would like to thank the community for reaching out to our band students on Wednesday, Nov 21st. About 40 students participated in the traditional Bagging for Tips at Harvery's and this year we added Winn Dixie. Students are raising money to go on their spring trip to Orlando and Daytona.
They will participate in the pre-ceremonies to the Daytona 500, go to the race, spend a day at Universal in Orlando, go see the Amazing Blue Man Group, and get to race small stock cars while on the trip.
The students really enjoyed their time at the stores and were very grateful for all donations! We have had an outstanding year supporting our Packer Nation and look forward to a new era next year- which will bring exciting modern music; explosive drum solos; dancing and newly choreographed flag work; maybe even some of the whole band dancing... and most of all exciting music for the community to enjoy under our Friday Night Lights!
It is our goal as a staff to bring entertainment to the field while teaching our students of CCHS pride, honor, dedication. Thank you, again, for all of your support. We look forward to seeing you at the grocery stores again the Saturday before Christmas.
We hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and let's make sure we all remember the real reason for the season.

One might find great resolve in Mandela’s life
There’s a scripture in the Bible that says “A soft answer turneth away wrath.”
Whenever we think of Nelson Mandela, that verse should come to mind. Many would say he epitomizes that notion even though in his younger days he might have exuded much more spit and vinegar in pursuing a cause.

It’s true: Objects are closer than they appear
You know that little warning on your rearview mirror that says, “Objects are closer than they appear.” Well, it’s true.

How did those lame names happen?
I’ve often wondered what process is used to determine the mascot name for a football team. Is there a committee formed to do this? Is it thrown out to the public in the form of a contest to come up with a moniker? Were two drunks in a bar involved?

In retrospect, tragedy seemingly gains new light
It’s often said that hindsight is 20-20. Many of us have instances in our lives where that thought would have application.
Now comes the Trayvon Martin/George Zimmerman case. As you recall, Zimmerman, described by some as a cop wannabe who couldn’t make the grade, killed young Martin. The jury acquitted Zimmerman of homicide charges. Many felt the prosecution was weak.

Tis’ the season when scammers hone their deeds
It might be the season to be jolly, and we all might hope for peace and goodwill, but the fact is this is also the season for scammers.
