Georgia Magazine - November, 2009 - (Page 7)

More on Foxfire I just finished reading the August 2009 magazine and my attention was drawn to “Foxfire revisited” [see page 16]. Having read all the Foxfire books (some of which were my dad’s books—a part of his life was lived before 1900), the mountain ways are well known to me. The article was excellent; however, I think Eliot Wigginton could have received some recognition as the originator of the methods used in his teachings. After all, he was the Georgia Teacher of the year in 1986 and recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship in 1989. The reference to “a teacher’s plan to interest students” does not recognize him as one of Georgia’s great visionary teachers. —Eric Smith, Lanett, Ala. ‘Picture this?’ Send us an e-mail Editor’s note: We’ve gotten several letters from readers who want to guess the featured locations in our “Picture this?” contest, but are frustrated because they keep getting an error message that says, “Cannot find this page” or “This page can’t be displayed.” As a reminder to readers, the address listed for guesses, picture, is not a Web site, but instead is an e-mail address to send your messages to, using an e-mail program.

And, again, thanks for the wonderful coverage. —Ann Moore, president and executive director, The Foxfire Fund Inc., Mountain City Address Kudos! may see Georgia first, rather than going long distances to other states. Georgia really has a lot to offer, and it might be in your own backyard. I recently took a trip, and on my way back, I took a different route through small towns rather than staying on Interstate 75. In Thomaston, I saw the old courthouse, but before I got to Butler, I noticed a sign that said “Auchumpkee Covered Bridge.” The bridge is located south of Thomaston, just off Highway 19 on Allen Road. [See “Picture this?,” August 2008, page 6.] Built in 1892, the bridge was washed out in a flood in 1994. It was reconstructed in 1997. A team of horses pulled the new bridge into place. What a sight that must have been. I would love to have been there, to join that celebration. This has been one of the greatest experiences of my life at age 67. I have seen a lot, but this is by far the most memorable. I do hope your readers will go see this small piece of Georgia history. It would be a great place to take a picnic lunch and just relax on the creek. —Alice Faye Taylor, Americus ORDER FORM Subscribe online at or mail the form below. page 16 ndy Co.
