Community
What a splendid day May 19 was for all of the families who attended the first annual S.A.F.E. Kids Fishing Derby at Nottely Marina. The parking lot was filled. The sun was shining and the fish were biting. The excitement was evidenced by all who participated.
This was a terrific way to celebrate the ending of the school year. Families enjoyed hot dog meals, on shore fishing games, the playground, and of course the serious fishing Derby.

Joshua Owens caught a Catfish and here he is holding his Carp.

A total of eight prizes were awarded including the top Four Largest Fish caught. Joshua Owens came in First Place by catching a 17 1/2″ 34.5 oz Carp. For his win, Joshua received a free half day fishing charter for one adult and two kids. This charter was provided by Jeremy Seabolt at Lake Nottely Fishing Charter.

Katryn Mason Placed Second, Ava Irwin, Came in Third Place, and Lindsey Hammond Placed 4th Place. The top four largest fish winners also received fishing rods and fishing gear which were provided by our

Collins Bill to Honor Fallen Marine Sent to President’s Desk

Press Release, State & National

COLLINS BILL TO HONOR FALLEN CLERMONT MARINE SENT TO PRESIDENT’S DESK

WASHINGTON—The Senate last night voted unanimously to pass H.R. 3821, legislation to rename Georgia’s Clermont Post Office in honor of Zack T. Addington. Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.) introduced the bill this September, and it passed the House in November.

“Lance Corporal Zack Addington represents the selfless courage that’s cultivated in northeast Georgia, and I’m excited to see this bill leave Congress and head to the president’s desk for his signature,” said Collins.

Collins also honored Addington when he spoke about the bill on the House floor.

Background:

Known to his neighbors as Zack, Addington joined the United States Marine Corps in 1967. A native of Clermont, he became a rifleman in the 3rd Marine Division of the Fleet Marine Force and deployed to Vietnam that year. Addington was promoted to Lance Corporal and served his country honorably until he was killed in action in May 1968.

That June, Addington received the Purple Heart, National Defense Service Medal, Vietnam Service Medal and Republic of Vietnam Campaign Ribbon in recognition of his service there.
