Albany -- Albany Police and Public Safety workers faced off Wednesday in some serious competition. They heated up the grills,to find out who could cook the best ribs and chicken.
It was the second annual Law Enforcement Memorial Week Bar-B-Que cook off. Four teams of police officers and public safety workers started grilling at six AM.
They had separate division for chicken, ribs, and hot wings. At 11:30 a group of local Bar-B-Que lovers judged, to see which team had the best grilled delight.
And in the end, a tie for grand championship. But that was just part of the fun. Lt. Ryan Ward said "Camaraderie. It's competition, but we all friends afterward."
Corporal Graham Stacy said "Mostly just to have fun, the camaraderie, the fellowship of the department and the other members around."
A lot of good fun and Bar-B-Que for the officers, as part of Law Enforcement Memorial week.
We're just over a week away from the annual Albany Christmas parade, and this year organizers need your help.
The Festival of Christmas Trees began Friday in Sycamore. Their goal is to spread holiday cheer by giving back to the community.
Local businesses spent Friday preparing for their busiest shopping day of the year -- Small Business Saturday.
With the holiday season upon us, it's important to think about your furry friends too.
People formed a line around the Best Buy in Valdosta just to get inside so they could take advantage of the sweet deals.
