Six workers still recovering in Augusta from severe burns in a sugar refinery explosion, are in need of blood. You can help, by taking part in the 'Time To Care' blood drive. It's at First Baptist Church of Augusta, from 10am - 8:30pm. You can get a free meal, child care if you need it, and a free t-shirt for taking time out to donate.

Tour de Georgia:

Racers from around the world will make their way into the Garden City tomorrow. They'll cross the 13th Street bridge, loop around downtown, and head toward the Augusta Common. Cars parked on Georgia Avenue need to be moved by 1:30 that afternoon. Traffic should return to normal around 4:30. 15 teams from all over the world will compete in the race that will last all week.
