CHEERS ...

- To Tom Metters, a longtime sportswriter for The Athens Messenger, who passed away last week at the age of 80. Current sports editor Kevin Wiseman wrote a wonderful tribute to Metters in Thursday’s newspaper, and the story can be found online. Here’s to a local sports giant.

- To the Wonder Bar, a Glouster landmark set to be demolished on Friday. Here’s to all the memories of hot dogs and chatter, and even a Hollywood film shot there in the late 1990s.

- To the Athens Food Truck Festival, which debuted last weekend in town. Now that’s a delicious tradition we can all get behind.

JEERS ...

To, predictably, the lengthy delays on East State Street. And we mean lengthy. This is, we must always point out, of no fault to the city or the dedicated workers ... just only that the delays are brutal.
