Christmas parade Thursday

MOULTRIE — Final plans are being made for Moultrie’s 2012 Festival of Lights Christmas Parade scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 13.

The parade begins at 6:30 p.m. The theme is “Christmas Magic Under the Lights.”

The parade route will begin on First Street Southeast at the Methodist Church, circle the courthouse on Central Avenue and return on Main Street ending at First Baptist Church. Anywhere along that route will be a great place to watch the parade, according to Main Street Director Amy Johnson.

A few bleachers and an area for wheelchairs will be available on the east side of the courthouse square. The Willie J. Williams Middle School band will be providing Christmas music as the crowd waits for the parade to start.

“This year will be a great parade,” Johnson said. “We have doubled the entries that we normally have. I am especially excited to see every school in Colquitt County represented this year.”

Santa Claus will be at the end of the parade.

Johnson said her staff along with over 30 volunteers have helped make this years parade a success. She gave special thanks the parade team this year, including Tina Coleman, Jessica McGirt, Bo Williams, Kristi Griffin, Becky Reagan, Patricia Powell, Daniel Parrish, Barbara Jelks, Steve Johnson, Elizabeth Strickland, Staci DeRosso, Beau Sherman, Ron Hunter, Kathy McLean, Stephanie Thaggard, Justin Cox, Merritta Patillo, Ann Hoffman, Bill Harrison, Mary Jane Alonzo, Pat Gay, Jeff Taylor, Adam Childers, Rae Ann Dees, Wanda Autrey, Tonya Mathis, Ashley O’Grady, Brittany Rye, Karen Thompson, Amanda Booker and Kathy Ellis.

The weather man is calling for a low of 43 Thursday night and rain predicted for today should have moved out of the area by then, according to

Should the U.S. negotiate with groups it considers terrorists?

No. Never.
Generally no, but prisoner exchanges are an exception.
Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
