Organizers said that 161 tickets - at $60 each - were sold, the largest number at any of the festivals, to date. Bidding at the Silent Auction was enthusiastic, at least late. The auction raised several hundred dollars, which like other proceeds from the festival will go to the Hogansville Historic Trast. Officials took the time during the dinner to honor one of the city's longest serving busi- nessmen, Ray Cheatham, 91, whose 70-year career in the city included his long-running insurance business. 1505 LaFayette Paiatway - LaGrango 706-884-2444 Mayor Wilson St. Clair presented Cheatham with a key to the city and a plaque declaring him"The Unofficial Mayor of Main Street. One of Cheatham's daughters presented the city with a photograph of Cheatham and his wife, their parents, which the mayor said will hang in a place of honor at City Hall. Bill StanMewicz cited - jokingly - one of the possible reasons for Cheatham's long-run- ning business success. He said that the businessman was once asked by a friend why he, unlike many of his colleagues, didn't play golf. Cheatham's response - in line with the joking nature of the question - supposedly said, "Why spend time chasing a little white ball when you could be chasing a dollar?"
