Plains-- State leaders rolled into Southwest Georgia. Their first stop--President Jimmy Carter's hometown.

The Heart of Georgia Tour let the guests off in Plains at lunchtime. Business, community and government leaders from across the state are touring 13 Southwest Georgia cities for three days.

The first stop was a big hit.

Karen Bailey of Hawkinsville says, "Oh, it is just a precious town. It is just so full of history. It is so neat. We just went by the President's house and in all the years that I have been coming here that is the first time I have actually been by the President and Mrs. Carter's house, that was pretty neat."

The bus was scheduled to pull into Moultrie and Sylvester as well. The tour is sponsored by the Georgia Cities Foundation.
