Community Kickoff to be held July 31

MILTON, Ga. -- The Milton High School Touchdown Club is preparing for its second Community Kickoff event, which is scheduled for Sunday, July 31 from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m.

This free, family-friendly evening features a movie, food, games, rides and a perfect opportunity for friends and neighbors to get together one last time before school starts.

Jason Wright, communications manager for the city of Milton, said this is the second time the non-profit booster club has opened the football team's photo day to the entire community.

"Last year, the Touchdown Club approached us about turning the team's event into a community event to officially end the summer. We immediately jumped on this opportunity," Wright said.

Bike Ride Will Shut Down GA 400

Bike Ride Will Shut Down GA 400

Bicycles on Georgia 400?  Isn’t that normally illegal?  This coming Sunday, for the third year in a row, Georgia 400 will be shut down so that bicycles can ride in the “Hospitality Highway Century” to benefit the Georgia Transplant Foundation (GTF). It’s your chance to be one of the few folks who can say that they shut down Georgia 400 and did something good for someone else at the same time.

Registered riders will promptly start at 6:30 a.m. from the former Home Depot parking lot in Roswell, at the intersection of Holcomb Bridge Rd. and Market Blvd., and pedal their way down GA 400 from exit 7 to exit 6. Cyclists will then wind through the cities of Roswell, Sandy Springs, Milton, Johns Creek, Alpharetta, and other scenic areas of north Fulton, Forsyth, and Cherokee counties.  The route includes rest stops, complete with bathrooms, full mechanical support, and a variety of snacks and drinks.

ALPHARETTA: Riverdale's Stackhouse rules at Dickey Jr.

ALPHARETTA, Ga. -- A month after earning an invitation to play in the 2011 U.S. Women's Open, Mariah Stackhouse captured the title at the 12th Annual Bill Dickey Junior Invitational.

Wednesday, the rising senior at North Clayton High School followed her opening round 66 with a second round 70 to win the Alpharetta tournament for a second time.  Stackhouse was pleased with the way she bounced back from a bogey on the 4th hole to card birdie on the 5th.

There is added pressure on Mariah these days, as she heads for the U.S Women's Open in Colorado Springs, Colo. in two weeks.  Already being called "The Next Tiger Woods" by some, Stackhouse does her best to tune it all out and keep focused on her game.
