Brookfield - - The spirit of Christmas is lighting up the lives of a small South Georgia Community with over 250,000 holiday lights.
It's a light show unlike most. Harce McGhee has lit up his four acre property in Brookfield for almost 30 years.
Each year it gets bigger and better. This year, he says he added 50,000 additional lights. He and just one other person put it all together by themselves.
It took patience and of course, a lot of time.
"We start around September, Labor Day and go through Thanksgiving. We enjoy doing it for the public," McGhee says.
As you can imagine, he gets a pretty high light bill for running the display. But he says it's all paid for by donations people offer when they visit.
You can catch the display on Brookfield-Lenox Road from 6 to 10 p.m. Sundays through Thursdays and 6 to 11 p.m. on Saturdays.
During the week of Christmas, he will run the lights until midnight.
Officials say the Regions Bank on West Broad Avenue was held up, about 12:30.
The primary elections narrow the field of candidates in the same party, and frequently decide who the nominee will be in the general election.
Dublin VA Medical Center will host a Memorial Day program to give recognition and remembrance to individuals that defended the nation and never came back home.
Bainbridge Public Safety said that the southbound Spring Creek bridge going over the bypass has been hit by heavy equipment.
Nearly two years after the body of a Worth County truck driver was discovered in a shallow grave, his stepson will stand trial today for his murder.
