    I was so busy this summer I either missed the news or the Athens, Georgia news just did not reach me... it may have gone un-noticed by many that Fred Birchmore passed away quietly this past April at the age of 100 and as far as I know he continued to be very active right up until he passed away.

    I woke up to hear on the radio that an area bike commuter, Bradley Murray, was killed early Sunday morning. Not many details are available yet besides he was driving home from a late shift at Frito Lay when he was hit on the shoulder of Upper Court Street (which is part of US Rt 11) in Kirkwood. The driver of the car had a previous convicted of a DWI within 10 years so he was automatically charged with a felony. I'm not real familiar with that area as it is on the other end of the micro-metropolis that is Binghamton NY but from memory it does seem to have some wide shoulders, but it also is a high speed road (depending on where he was hit, when it gets more commercial the speed limit drops). No news if the cyclists had lights on or reflective gear. I don't know Bradley, but it sure is sad news. Here is one story on the crash: http://www.pressconnects.com/article...arged-with-DWI

    Sonny Johnson. A very good friend to many here. Passed away far too soon while riding his trainer.
