BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

SOUTH METRO – For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we've compiled a list of Inexpensive Date Spots for you to take your special someone.

In today’s economy, it’s important to find companionship which, in our opinion, is the cheapest form of entertainment. However, it’s the springtime, and people like to get out every now and then. So, check out these suggestions for fun under $15.

If you had a rough week, take your date to Range, Guns and Safes to blow off some steam. Every Wednesday, this range, located in Forest Park, costs $10 for the first hour of target practice for male/female couples. Subsequent hours are $12 each.

SCHS Receives Sportsmanship Award

The Georgia High School Association (GHSA) and Georgia Electric Membership Corporation (GEMC) announced that Sandy Creek High is one of 38 GHSA-member high schools that will receive the 2010 Georgia EMC Cooperative Spirit Sportsmanship Award honoring exemplary sportsmanship demonstrated during the 2009-2010 school year.
