Love to see the big yellow machines work!

Look out on the parkway and on the right, coming in, you see new doctors’ offices coming up. And across the road a new car dealership!

Folks, that is a wonderful site of growth. LaGrange has slow growth and that is good for everyone.

Newnan had great growth years ago and it is a traffic nightmare today. We have the new furniture warehouse opening soon, and next year the water park should get the big yellow machines working.

I still say Troup County is the best value on homes anywhere in Georgia — $125,000 for the average three-bedroom and $175,000 on the average four-bedroom home.

We have one of the best fishing lakes in the South with plenty of free access with your boat.

Yes, I am proud to call Troup County home and I feel if you look around you’re proud of it also. Real estate is a bargain with interest rates from 3 percent to 4 percent so if you’re renting, it is a great time to buy.

Invest in your future, if you’re renting and buy a piece of Troup County, you will be glad you did.
