On today’s show, Patrick and Amy Lane discuss food and local restaurants.


The Harris County Chamber of Commerce has been busy preparing for the 12th annual Wheels O’Fire Century Cycle tour and with only two weeks left the excitement is building. Participants can choose from 26, 45, 68 and 101 mile route courses and spend their day riding the beautiful back roads of Harris County with rest stops every 10-12 miles which are manned by the counties finest volunteer fireman. We have riders that range from 8 years old to 90 and come from all over the United States. Cyclists travel from Florida, Tennessee, New York and last year an Arizona family of 8 flew out here just to ride the Wheels O’Fire 101 mile route. This year we are happy to announce that 150 people have pre-registered for the event and we hope that another 200 cyclists will register at walk up registration taking place on Friday, April 5th from 5:00pm-7:00pm and Saturday, April 6th from 6:30am-8:00am at the Harris County High School Cafeteria.

            The sponsors of Wheels O’Fire play an integral part in this event. The Chamber would like to thank the 2013 sponsors of the cycle tour: Title Sponsor- Kia Motors Manufacturing Georgia, Five-Alarm Sponsor- Georgia Power, Four Alarm Sponsors- PMB Broadcasting, Atmos Energy, SouthComm Publishing, First Peoples Bank, JCG/Koch Foods, Callaway Blue, Daehan Solution, Raw Revolution, Traceable Creations and our Three-Alarm sponsors- Ten-8 and Diverse Power.  Sponsorship of this event helps us stock the rest stops with supplies as well as provide the t-shirts to cyclists and most importantly contribute to the local Volunteer Fire Departments.

Cyclists will be on the roads of from 7:30am-5:00pm on Saturday, April 6th. The Chamber asks the local community to welcome these riders toHarrisCounty and to please share the road with them. Proceeds of Wheels O’Fire are shared with the Harris County Volunteer Fire Departments. This is just one way to give back and to thank them for keep us safe inHarrisCounty.

The Falconaires United States Air Force Academy Band concert scheduled for Monday, March 25th at 7:00 pm has been regrettably cancelled. The band has cancelled all national public concerts as a result of the impacts of sequestration. Both the staff of The Centre for Performing and Visual Arts and the Board Members of the Patrons of the Centre apologize for the change in our schedule and hope that our Patrons will understand the dynamic nature of these national events. Lt. Col. Schofield, USAF stated that they “look forward to a time when the Air Force Academy Band can continue representing the Air Force Academy on the national stage and hope that our travels bring us back to Newnan in the future.” More Information
