Appling County is constructing a new Concerted Services Senior Center/Head Start facility on Junior High Drive, across the road from Ernest J. Parker Recreation Park.

There is no other way to say it other than, “Brrr...”. Saturday, Sunday and part of the day on Monday it was cold in Baxley. Temps dropped to the mid 20s at night and early morning hours during the period. Above is a fountain that turned to ice Monday at Reddy Daycare, located on City Circle Road. Temps started rising Monday and are looking much warmer for the remainder of the work week and into the weekend.
