Downtown Macon Hosts New Farmers' Market

The city of Macon joined forces with two non-profit agencies to give people a new place to pick up produce downtown.

It's called the Mulberry Street Farmers' Market, and organizers are hoping its farm-to-fork approach will keep farmers and customers coming back every week.

Mainstreet Director Alex Morrison says the goal is to cater to people who live and work downtown. The market is open from 4:30 to 7 p.m. on Wednesdays--perfect timing, he says, for people getting off work.

Morrison also says its the only producer-exclusive market in Central Georgia.

"Everything at this market is grown or made by the people who are selling it," says Morrison. "It comes from the soil here so it's going to be good for the people here."

Mattie Lovett stopped by the market on the way home from her job at the Medical Center of Central Georgia.

Study: Storms May Affect Allergies

Pouring rain, clapping thunder, and bright lightning may be making your allergy symptoms worse.

Instead of washing away allergies, this week's thunderstorms may make the allergy season worse.

Eight-year-old Mack Atencia isn't the only one who dreads the yellow stuff.

"It really bothers my allergies. It makes it actually worse," says Austin Bearden of this Spring's pollen.

And they're not the only ones.

Dr. David Plaxico is an asthma and allergy specialist, he says this time of year he sees around 30 patients a day.

"Trees are pollinating, they're dropping pollen into the air to be dispersed," says Dr. Plaxico.

And he says storms like the ones that whipped through Central Georgia last weekend, could blow in even more allergens.

"It gets it circulating there, it's more dispersed for a larger space than it would normally," he says.

Central Georgia Ranks Poorly in Health Report

 

Most Central Georgia counties need to improve their health habits, a national study says.

 

A study released Wednesday by the University of Wisconsin Population Health Institute and the Robert Johnson Wood Foundation ranked every county in the nation on its health habits and its results.

 

Most counties in Central Georgia ranked below average among the state's 159 counties.

Give Me Christian Liberty Or Give Me Death

My whole life I’ve thought that happiness was only a matter of trying harder. As a Christian, I learned that happiness is seeing God. So I learned the methods and techniques for spiritual growth and ran with them. Inevitably, that happiness was always just one step further. I’d recognize my failure, pull myself up by my spiritual bootstraps and resolve to read the Bible more, share my faith more, pray more, pray more fervently, serve people, serve poorer people, love my friends better, love my family better, love my enemies better (I don’t have any?), eat healthier, exercise more, watch my tongue more closely, and on and on and on. Every so often, I’d take stock of my state, realize that I wasn’t seeing God and feeling happy in the way that I desired.
