BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

BEST SPOTS: Inexpensive Dates

SOUTH METRO – For this week’s installment of Best Spots, we've compiled a list of Inexpensive Date Spots for you to take your special someone.

In today’s economy, it’s important to find companionship which, in our opinion, is the cheapest form of entertainment. However, it’s the springtime, and people like to get out every now and then. So, check out these suggestions for fun under $15.

If you had a rough week, take your date to Range, Guns and Safes to blow off some steam. Every Wednesday, this range, located in Forest Park, costs $10 for the first hour of target practice for male/female couples. Subsequent hours are $12 each.

Netwon High Rams top Newnan 53-33, punch ticket to state

McDONOUGH -- (www.covnews.com) The Rams had several goals coming into the season. They met two of those by winning 20 games and the regular-season region title earlier this month. After a 53-33 win over Newnan in the opening round of the Region 2-AAAAA tournament Tuesday, they can cross off one more.

Derrick Henry scored 20 points, Newton held the Cougars to 13 points in the second half and the Rams punched their ticket to the Class AAAAA playoffs for the second straight year. 

"That's something like nine or 10 times in the past 13 years we've won 20 games and gone to state," Newton coach Rick Rasmussen said. "That's definitely something we shoot for each year and that's a great accomplishment but I don't think that's enough for our program right now.
