Marlow's Tavern Grabs The Holidays By The Tail

 

Back by popular demand, Marlow’s Tavern is once again offering its five-week-long “Lobsters & Libations” menu from Tuesday, November 30 through Monday, January 2.

From keeping crowd favorites to modifying other menu items, Marlow’s Tavern has truly taken its guests into consideration.  

“We are excited to bring back our ‘Lobsters & Libations’ menu,” says Executive Chef/Co-Founder John Metz. “We love how enthusiastic our guests are about the selections, and because we always offer it this time of year, it helps to get everyone in the holiday spirit,” he adds.

Much like last year’s offering, this year’s menu puts a Marlow’s twist on classic dishes.

Lake Lanier level moves up after rains

Lake Lanier level moves up after rains

GAINESVILLE, Ga. (AP) - Lake Lanier has crept up several inches since hard rains fell earlier in the week.

The lake stood at 1,058.26 feet above sea level on Wednesday, almost 13 feet below the summer full pool of 1,071 feet. Winter full pool of 1,070 feet becomes effective Thursday.

The lake serves as a major water supply for metro Atlanta. Its elevation dropped to 1,057.91 feet on Monday before rain began falling.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says it will conserve water during the ongoing drought by restricting the flow from the lake.

The National Weather Service says Lee Gilmer Memorial Airport in Gainesville recorded 1.23 inches of rain between early Monday and early Wednesday.

No rain is in the forecast until Sunday.

Former West Forsyth Player Fights Cancer, Loves College

ATHENS, Ga. - Former West Forsyth Wolverine Trey Rood wasn't able to continue playing football in college, but his incredibly strong will and support system means he's on campus loving life.

Trey had surgery for melanoma when he was only ten, then went on with school and football.  Once again in his teenage years doctors spotted trouble.  Still he was ready for a big senior season.  But then, big trouble.

The tumors were so big and wide spread that he and his family made a decision to go to Germany for radically experimental treatments.  He played a few downs in a few games, but mostly lent support to his teammates during his senior season.
