The gymnasium of the Athens Community Center buzzed with
talk of all things sci-fi Saturday. At Ratha Con, the second annual such comic
book/sci-fi/fantasy convention held in Athens, vendors from in and out of
Athens sold merchandise from popular movies such as "Star Wars" and even
ongoing TV shows (AMC's "The Walking Dead") while others shared advice about
everything from artwork to weapons to storylines.
Saturday I'll be revisiting my misspent rock 'n roll youth at the Fur Peace
Ranch in Meigs County. An old friend (we'll call him "Tom" since that's his
name) and I will be attending the sold-out Glass Harp show.
Ever been surprised to see an old friend out of the blue? Of course.
Well, how about having your wife you thought was dead reappear? The ABC
Players bring a farce showcasing that bizarre scenario to Stuart's Opera
House this Thursday through Sunday.
Athens Community Visiting
Nurse Association, Hospice and Health Services will kick off its 2013 Fund
Drive with a performance by The Local Girls 3 p.m. this Sunday, May 5 at
Central Venue, 29 E. Carpenter St., in Athens.
