A foot bridge that spans a narrow creek leading into Lake Chapman at Sandy Creek Park was dedicated on January 26. Very involved in the design of the bridge and its placement were Walt Cook and former Athens Clarke County Commissioner Carl Jordan. Walt Cook also laid a trail to the bridge from a nearby road. With the opening of the bridge, on the north side of the lake, now hikers can walk all the way around Lake Chapman. The brdige is dedicated to Ellen R. Jordan, the late wife of Carl Jordan.
