November 28, 2018 John Ambrose to Reporter A Well Norfolk Southern railroad was kind enough to stop traffic all day in Forsyth on Monday to make "improve- ments" to the main rail crossing in town at the top of Hamburger Hill, aka Lee Street. All the local tire and align: ment shops thank the railroad for its effort to increase their business, because whatever improvements they made, the crossing now seems rougher than ever, requiring four wheel drive. I'm told they're gonna come back and finish all the crossings later. Meanwhile, up in High Falls, a movie crew blocked another popular thoroughfare, the High Falls hik- ing trails, to film more of the new Apple TV series, '~,mazing Stories." That's the show they were filming at the Monroe County courthouse a few weeks ago.

Back here in Forsyth, they've finished putting a drive-through window on the old 478 Country Buffet for when it opens at Georgia Bobs BBQ.
