Ingles Eyes New Gas Station

Ingles Eyes New Gas Station

It appears Forsyth is about to get a new convenience store and gas station.

The Ingles on Tift College Drive submitted plans to the Forsyth-Monroe County Building Department on Feb. 14 to build a new $1.2 million convenience store called The Market in the parking lot. If approved, the store would include slots for 24 drivers to pump gas at a time.

More details in the Monroe County Reporter newspaper or at their website: http://mymcr.net .

I Didn't Know

I Didn't Know

I had been to Juliette a 100 times, but i just didn't know they had an Opry there. About a year and half ago I discovered it.

I have been playing bluegrass about two years  and somebody said, "Ever go up to the Juliette Opry?"

"No, didn't know they had one," and probably neither did you!

Juliette Opry is located in downtown Juliette on Mccrackin street, just a stroll up from the Whistle Stop Cafe ,about 8 miles east of  Forsyth and about 20 minutes north of Macon, and is  open the first saturday of most months , with local pickers gathering up on the porch around 6-630(we're pretty informal) playing their favorite music. From the Allman Brothers to Bill Monroe, no telling what you can hear. Guitars , Dobros, Mandolins, the Upright Bass , good harmonies or sometimes just shut up and play. Around 8 p.m. a visiting group takes the stage for about an hour. Refreshment are available for purchase and we are a family-friendly environment.
