Badcock Distribution Center Groundbreaking


W.S. Badcock Corp., in conjunction with the city of
LaGrange and the LaGrange
Industrial Development
Authority, held a groundbreaking for its new regional
distribution center at 505
Pegasus Parkway from 2-3
p.m. on Friday, Feb. 6.
The 535,000-square-foot
facility is located in
LaGranges Callaway South
Industrial Park and is scheduled to open in the third
quarter of 2015. The center
will include enhanced energy
efficiency technologies and
is designed for expansion to
700,000 square feet.
This is a significant project
for our company, and we are
delighted to make this
investment here and become
an integral part of LaGrange
and Troup County, W.S.
Badcock President Mike
Price said. The new distribution facility is designed to
handle distribution to our
current network of locations
and will also accommodate

our planned growth of new


stores.
W.S. Badcock Corp. controls
315 Badcock Home
Furniture & more stores
operating in Florida,
Alabama, Mississippi,
Tennessee, North Carolina,
South Carolina, Georgia and
Virginia, offering furniture,

appliances, bedding and


more.
The center is expected to
replace two existing Badcock
facilities in Thomson, Ga.,
and Cullman, Ala.
The company will invest
more than $22 million into
the facility which is set to
employ more than 100 peo-

ple.
We welcome Badcocks
distribution facility to
LaGrange, LaGrange
Mayor Jim Thornton said.
They are a strong brand
with an outstanding reputation for excellence, and we
are excited to have these jobs
created in our community.

The amazing thing, to


me, is that while we

died for us. Christ didn't
wait for us to stop sinning, get better, or, pay
something before He
saved us. He died for us
while we were yet sinners.

Memories From The 1950s


I have heard people say their
Dad would take them to the
woodshed for a whippin. Mine
didn't do that. He used his

wood shed just for cutting


wood and keeping it dry. He
had a saw that you had to have
a belt to run it. He would attach

Plexus Worldwide
Independent Amabassador #133645

it to his Willis Jeep and it


would start the saw and he
could cut wood. That little jeep
was special to my brother and
me.
We would take our friends for
rides. I remember once we
decided to get everyone we
could in the Jeep, which was
about 20 to 22 people. We had
people sitting on the hood,
hanging out the sides and hanging out the back. We took the
top off so there would be more
room. Every time we got to a
corner Gary would yell everybody lean to the left if he was
going right. Just the opposite if
he was turning left. It is a won-

der we didn't lose somebody


and get hurt. I don't think my
parents ever knew what we did.
Gary and I loved that old jeep.
We rode in it all over the property. Gary usually drove. We
had terraces behind our barn.
We would invite friends over
and than we would take them
across those terraces. They are
horseshoe shaped pieces of
ground that is used for planting.
It would make the crops grow
better. We would fly across
them and not even touch them.
We jumped from terrace to terrace. It is like riding a roller
coaster except for the seat belts.
We knew it was dangerous, but
to us it was fun. All we could
do was hold on for dear life and
hope no one got hurt. Of course

if we did our parents never


knew it.
We had a Black Walnut tree in
the back yard. My dad put a
rope on one of the limbs and
hung an old tire from it to use
as a swing. He did not have the
money for a real one but in my
eyes it was the greatest thing. I
would swing and twist the rope
to my hearts content. One day

I got my hair caught in the


rope. It twisted around and
around until my dad stopped it.
My mom had to cut my hair
where it was caught. I was bald
on top of my head for a while,
not to mention a knot. My
brother really teased me about
that.

George Washington & The Cherry Tree

Furry Friends Boarding & Spa

For those who aren't familiar


with the story of George
Washington and the cherry
tree, let me give you the 30
second version. George
Washington, the first President
of the United States, was
known for his truthfulness,
even as a child. The story tells
that young George chopped
down a cherry tree and when
his father asked him about it,
he told his father the truth.
George was not punished
because of his truthfulness.
You can figure out the moral
of the story.

"No, Dad."
"I think you are lying."

NOT chop down the cherry
tree."
"Son, I saw you out here with
your axe. Your punishment
will be much worse for you if
you lie. Now, tell me the
truth!"

did not volunteer information.


"Indeed, Dad, I did cause the
cherry tree to be lying on the
ground. To do this was wrong.
It constituted a critical lapse in
judgment and a personal failure on my part for which I am
solely and completely responsible.
"I know my answer to you
gave a false impression. I misled you, my own father. I
deeply regret that.
"I can only tell you I was
motivated by many factors.
First, by a desire to protect
myself from the embarrassment of my own conduct.

"What I did, Dad, was use a


saw to cause the cherry tree to
fall. Only after the tree was
already down did I go get my
axe to chop off individual
branches.
"So, I chopped off branches,
but sawed down the tree. Look
at the saw cut on the stump
and the axe cuts on the
branches. Therefore, legally, I
told the truth.
"I ask you to turn away from
the spectacle of this fallen tree
and to return our attention to a
solid family relationship."

Sound familiar?
"I was also very concerned
about protecting Mom from
this shock.

I remember when we got


our first phone. We were
so happy to have a way to
call people. It was good
for my moms butter, milk
and egg business. There
was one big problem. It
was a party line. That
means there are several
families on one line. Most
of the people on our line
were good to get off the
phone to let someone else
use it except one person.
Mrs. Cook was bedridden
and loved to talk on that
phone. No matter how bad
we needed to use it she
would not hang up.
I admit that Gary and I
were mean to her at times.
We would click the phone
so she couldnt hear who
she was talking to. We
would make all kinds of
loud noises. It didnt faze
her, she would not hang
up. She did tell my mom
what we were doing and
boy were we in trouble
than.
Another one of my

favorite memories was


going to my Uncle Paul
and Aunt Leilas house in
Lyons, Ga. That is a little
town near Vidalia, Ga.
That is Vidalia onion country. Everywhere you look
there are onion patches.
According to my Uncle
Paul they should have
been named Toombs Co.
onion. He grew the same,
if not better onions, in his
garden, and he lived in
Lyons.

for all the ladies. Little


dogs were the favorite. He
made furniture. My Mom
had a cedar bed, dresser
and cedar chest that he
made. I still have that set
today. We have small items
that he made sitting around
the house now. Most of

them made out of cedar.


I loved spending the night.
We would go on Friday
and stay though Saturday.
It wasnt long but they
both made our visit very
enjoyable. Uncle Paul
always made peach ice

cream. To this day I love


the smell of peaches. Aunt
Leila went all out for
lunch and dinner. She had
the most beautiful set of
Fiesta Ware. That is a set
of dishes take comes in
assorted colors. She had
every color, blue, green,

orange
and yellow. I liked my
place setting to be all the
colors. I have so many
memories of visiting them.
I could go on and on.

My brother Gary and


Uncle Paul always argued
over who had the best and
newest car. When we got
our 1957 Chevrolet they
really argued. That car to
us was the very best
around. I would love to
have one today.
Uncle Paul was an inventor. He had many patents
for his inventions. He
invented a egg carrier. It
was a belt that ran under
the chicken and as it laid
the egg it was carried to
the carton. He was good
with wood. He made pins

A Thought For
Valentines Day
He still puts the stars to
bed
And plants each tiny
seed;
Puts every petal on each
flower,
Provides our every need.
Yet He who knows our
future paths
Veils our eyes here
below;
Although we strain to see
ahead,
Love says we must not
know.
Eternal Wisdom planned
it thus ~
No human comprehends,
The child of God must
learn to trust
In faith, what our Lord
sends.
No matter what the future
holds,
Entreat your soul to rest;
Secure to know,
Day
After day,
Your Father does know
best!
