Georgia Kayak Brings New Kind of Retail to Macon

Georgia Kayak Brings New Kind of Retail to Macon

 

Macon, GA --  Georgia Kayak celebrates its grand opening on Tuesday, October 4 at 3 p.m. at 487 Second Street. 

That's according to a Main Street Macon news release.

Josh Howell loves getting on the river about 9 a.m. on a Saturday morning and spending a lazy day swimming, kayaking and enjoying the great outdoors.  So an outdoor outfitter business was a perfect extension for his professional life.  Howell says, “Downtown Macon was a natural location because of the proximity of the Ocmulgee River and the Riverwalk.  I want people to experience the river and not forget all of the beautiful natural resources we have in Middle Georgia.”  He has a working relationship with Ocmulgee Expeditions owners Brian and Stephen Adams to further enhance what they are offering with their river trips.

NCAA Wrestling Champion Visits High Schools

NCAA Wrestling Champion Visits High Schools

NCAA Individual Wrestling Champion for 2010-2011 Anthony Robles told students gathered in Northeast High School’s gym on Friday, September 16, that there will always be challenges in life, and that it is how you react to those challenges that make you who you are.

“Those obstacles made me stronger,” Robles said of his own challenges.

Born without a right leg, Robles said he could have given up many times, but instead he kept going and he pursued his passion for wrestling. Now he wears an NCAA Championship ring and holds a degree in Business Communications from Arizona State University, where he graduated last spring. He also tours the country as a motivational speaker, just signed a deal with Nike, and is close to signing a book and movie deal.

Friday, he visited students at three District schools – Howard, Northeast and Southwest High Schools – to share his story.
