The dream of turning Church Street School into a regional cultural arts center took one more step toward reality Friday, when a group of citizens met at City Hall to begin the process of creating an organization that would oversee the center's renovation and operation. "This is taking Andalusia and Covington County to another level when it comes to the arts," said Mayor Earl Johnson.
I have to disagree with the 'another level' statement though. It sounds like Andalusia is already on some level when it comes to arts. Fact is, compared to many other historic Southern towns, it's near the bottom-basement.
