I have been to every site on her map, from Callaway Gardens to St. Marys— and I agree: South Georgia is history and adventure! But, perhaps there is one omission in her excellent article. The coverage begins in Pine Mountain. My South Georgia boundary would include what I have discovered to be one of the most remarkable and beautiful small towns in the country: LaGrange. LaGrange might just have it all. It’s a “best places list” kind of town. For openers, it is nestled near West Point Lake, one of the best fishing lakes in the state. It also has an outstanding college; the LaGrange Symphony Orchestra and Concert Hall; two fine art centers/museums; the West Georgia Medical Center, an excellent health care system; several Fortune 500 Company offices; a new downtown movie theater; a temperate climate, which makes golf a reality year-round; Southern hospitality at its best; and the list goes on. LaGrange is too good to be true, and just 17 miles from Pine Mountain. —Maryalice Lenmark, LaGrange Please send a subscription to: Bring Georgia home! ® Took me back to my childhood I read Jane Garvey’s “Taste the real deal” in August 2009’s GEORGIA Magazine [see page 28].

George Credle lived across the street), as well as other “seafood” families on the coast. Papa’s boats would bring in Georgia’s seafood bounty, and when we visited them, he would have washtubs of shrimp, blue crabs and oysters brought to the house. All of our family in the Brunswick area would come eat. Sadly, Whorton Crab and the Freezer are now gone, but we still have family in the seafood business and wonderful memories of those special times. —Lynn Bryan Hughes Akin, Griffin RESOURCES GA. DEPT.
