Prayers from Athens 

As a native Mississippian (Yazoo City), now living in Athens, Georgia, who absolutely loves visiting the Gulf Coast and New Orleans - and has family and friends (including Sun Herald Sports Reporter Brandon Bickerstaff) that lives in both areas, I just want to let you know that I am praying for God's protection for all of you from the dangers Hurricane Katrina will be sending your way. I will be waiting and watching for updates on conditions in the area. Elmyra H. Jemison (Hammer got this one out to me. Thanks, Don, if you can still read this, be careful. I thought turkeys could fly, too... Geoff)
