Peachtree City student interns in Washington office

Peachtree City resident Brian Jack this month began a four-month internship in the Washington office of U.S. Rep. Lynn Westmoreland.

“I like to give college students a front-row seat on American democracy through these internships and it’s always best to have someone from the district such as Brian who understands Georgia and feels a personal connection to my constituents,” Westmoreland said. “Brian’s going to be with us for a good stretch and he’s already shown an unusually high interest in federal policy-making and the legislative process. He has a strong grasp of how things work here and he’ll use those skills to help our office serve the people of Georgia’s 3rd Congressional District.”

Jack, 19, is a sophomore at Pepperdine University in Malibu, Calif., where he is majoring in political science. The Woodward Academy graduate recently returned from a semester abroad studying the Mandarin language and Chinese politics in Hong Kong. He is the son of Mitch and Sophia Williams of Peachtree City.

Starr's Mill

Just found a beautiful shot of Starr's Mill on Flickr, thought you might want to take a look.

I had to take a look at other photos posted on Flickr by "Quantum Physics". Really great photos! If you go to the page above, click on the name toward the top right, or come back here and click on this link:

It's interesting how much you can discover about someone you don't know just by looking at their photo page. You'll see what I mean as you look at where they've been and the captions under the photos.

Seem like really nice Fayette County folk.
