Box 426 t logansv ille, Georgia 30230 Festival Adds 'Gospel Fest' Gospel Fest, a new addi- tion to the Hummingbird Festival, debuts this Oct. 18 and 19 in a big way. The best of regional gospel singers will be at the festival performing non- stop almost all weekend. At least 12 different groups/singers, including HogansviUe's own Antioch Baptist Church Choir and Bruce Martin (a Hogansville High alumni and former nightclub singer), and others from all over the area will be perform- ing at three venues from one end of the festival grounds to the other. "The way this fell together," says Susan Reynolds, enter- tainment committee chairperson, "it was like it was inspired. Group after group keep volunteering. It was very easy to set up." According to Reynolds, the performances will begin early Saturday and continue all through the festival until it closes Sunday afternoon. The three areas earmarked for the presentations are all on Main Street: in front of the First Baptist Church, at the food court across from City Hall, and by the drug store across from the Police Station. "We'll have signs at each location and programs at Festival Headquarters in the Veteran's Park," adds Reynolds, "but really, there will be so much music all folks will have to do is show up anytime. And it's all free." The performers are such established names as Bradley Webber from Pine Mountain, Steve Presley, Ronnie Le Fever and Mary Weldon from LaGrange and Gina Ables from Newnan. "This will be such a lot of fun. And what a great way to celebrate God's works." said Reynolds. "We want to thank Rev. Longshore and the Lighthouse Tabernacle for getting the ball rolling last year and the First Baptist Church of Hogansville for using the area in front of the church."

Grimes Why I Don't Ever Watch From Lewis Grizzard's collection "It Wasn't Easy, But I Sure Had Fun" Reasons why I hate soc- cer and wouldn't pay atten- tion to a World Cup match if it was going on in my back- yard and the beer was free: There are only three final scores in soccer. They are 0- 0. 1-0 and in a real scoring orgy, 1-1. Being able to bounce a ball off one's head isn't that impressive to me. I've seen countless seals do the same thing on The Ed Sullivan Show. Soccer breeds fan vio- lence because it's very dull, and when the fans get bored, they pass the time by trying to kill and maim one another. Nobody ever throws a high, inside, fastball in soc- cer, baseball's answer to killing and maiming. A man named Phil Woosnam, then president of the North American Soccer League, once bragged to me, "In 20 years soccer will be bigger than pro football in the United States." That was 25 years ago. (Now 40 years ago.) Soccer is responsible for soccer-style kickers in American football. I agree with the late Norm Van Brocklin, who was asked his reaction to the game after his Atlanta Falcons had been beaten on last-minute field goal by some guy from Yugoslavia or Afghanistan. Van Brocklin said "They ought to tighten the immi- gration laws in this country." A referee's controversial call in a soccer match start- ed World War I. No, I can't prove that, but I don't have to. Too many soccer teams wear dark socks with their shorts, a violation of every fashion rule ever written. THE THEME SONG for the British Broadcasting Corporation'scoverage of the World Cup is Luciano Pavarottrs version of "Nessum Dorma" from Puccini's opera Turandot. The theme song of WGN's cover- age of Chicago Cubs' baseball is Harry Caray singing 'Take Me Out To The Ballgame." "The two teams ran up and down the field for approx- imately three hours, but nobody could score." My Alma Mater, the University of Georgia over- came all sorts of odds and won the 1990 College Baseball World Series. I realize that doesn't have a thing to do with soccer, but I just thought I would mention it. Bo doesn't know diddly about soccer. I was in London once and watched the Super British soccer matches on evision because there anything else on. The teams ran up and hours, but nobody score. They decided to another game two later. They ran up and the field again for an hour two, and then the ball player in the head and into the goal accident, and the final was 1-0 Hitler was cer fan. If soccer were American soft drink, it be Diet Pepsi. How BY SPECIAL WITH HIS HOME NEWS IS DEDRA, GRIZZARD, WHO BY MORELAND, AND MOST WIDELY READ WRITER OF HIS TIME. P.O. BOX GA 31118-1266 AND WIDE.
