Nominate a Sidewalk That Needs Refreshing in College Hill

Crossroads Creative Group received a Knight Neighborhood Challenge grant for Sidewalk Stories.  The program wants to find the worst sidewalks in the College Hill area and replace it with fresh, safe sidewalks that have a special Macon touch: a lyric or poem or quote or bit of history that relates to our creative city.

They need YOUR help!  Click here to nominate a "sidewalk" or "story" (or BOTH!)

Warner Robins Woman Sings on Chattanooga Movie Set

Lisa Hiland of Warner Robins, got the moment of a lifetime: the chance to sing on a movie set.

She sang the National Anthem on the Chattanooga set for "42" at the end of May.

Being part of a musical family and singing for most of her life, she says she was more excited than nervous about the opportunity.

She posted a video of her singing the National Anthem as part of a competition on Facebook. Hiland won by getting the most "likes" out of the videos in the competition.

Hiland says the most exciting part about the shoot was getting to dress in 1940s style.
