Monroe Crossing to present bluegrass concert Friday, January 8, 2016 in Milledgeville

Allied Arts will present a bluegrass concert by Monroe Crossing in Allen's Market Friday, January 8, 2016 at 7:30 pm.  Tickets for the performance are $10.70 each and can be purchased at the Marlor House, 201 North Wayne Street, Milledgeville from 9-4:00 pm M-F or online at www.milledgevillealliedarts.com

The band is named in honor of Bill Monroe, “The Father of Bluegrass Music.” Monroe Crossing entertains audiences with an electrifying blend of classic bluegrass, bluegrass gospel, and heartfelt originals. Based in Minnesota, the group plays an average of 125 shows a year at major venues and festivals, frequently for non-bluegrass audiences — and people often comment that they’d never really liked bluegrass music until they attended a Monroe Crossing concert.

Lockerly Arboretum hosting holiday tours


Four Milledgeville garden clubs decorated the Rose Hill Home at the Lockerly Arboretum for the holidays.

Tickets for a reception Friday night, where people can enjoy hors d'oeuvres and walk around the house, are sold out.

But people can still purchase tickets for the Lockerly Holiday Open House Saturday.

Visitors will take a guided tour around the mansion and learn about its history.

Katherine Cummings, the executive director of the arboretum says the tour is a great way to ring in the holidays.

"It's a great opportunity to come out and get a snapshot of history and see a home that was decorated in period decorations," she said, "It's also a wonderful way to see how folks can use fresh greenery from their yards."

The tours will take place Saturday from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

Tickets are $3 per adult, $1 per child, and they can be purchased at the site.

Talks of Baldwin-Milledgeville consolidation continue


It's been a week since Milledgeville and Baldwin County residents said they don't want to merge, but will consolidation make its way back on the ballot? Supporters are saying yes.

"At this point, what we would like to do is go back to the drawing board and craft a document that is better," said Councilman Walter Reynolds.

Reynolds was let down after 64 percent of voters in the city said no to the unification charter he promoted. But that defeat, he says, is an opportunity to fix the charter's kinks.

"If we can find some common ground to move this community forward, then we'd really love to have the opposition come and join the team," said Reynolds.

He says he's willing to address concerns, like merging the police and sheriff's department.
