Harrison High School Band Makes History

KENNESAW, GA -- The Harrison High School Marching Band made history on Saturday, Oct. 16 by winning back-to-back Grand Championships and Class AAA Championships at the Western Carolina University Tournament of Champions.

In the 10-year history of the Cullowhee, North Carolina tournament, no other organization has ever won both the class division and the Grand Championship two years in a row -- until now.

With music from Leoncavallo, Hindemith, Shostacovich and Sousa, Harrison's "Vesti La Giubba" band program continues to prove its excellence and dedication.

Harrison will now travel to Indianapolis in early November to compete in the Bands of America Regional Championship, where they hope to continue their winning streak.

KENNESAW, GA -- The Atlanta housewives are dropping like fleas, and TV mogul Pyler Terry sees an opportunity to create another hit show: "Pyler Terry's The Dead Housewives of Atlanta."

The Kennesaw Police Explorers will be hosting the cast of Agatha's mystery dinner theater for a special fundraiser. Proceeds from this event benefit local youth interested in law enforcement with training, competitions and community involvement.

In this hilarious production, several stars of the hit TV show "The Real Housewives of Atlanta" have met strange and untimely ends. The most recent housewife to bite the big one is fan favorite Boo Boo Biggins, who died shortly after she bit the big "1" on her birthday cake while celebrating her tenth annual 31st birthday.
