Terry Stephens has become an advocate for clean waterways in Northeast Georgia.
In the last three years, some 10,000 people have seen a new side of town. Thanks to Big Dog’s on the River, they’ve kayaked down the Middle Oconee, enjoying the water source that’s been vital to Athens since the city was founded. For years, Terry Stephens had owned Big Dog’s Tires & Service and storage, an Atlanta Highway business with property that includes river frontage.

The company moved into their new office space on Monday, in the new production plant.
Caterpillar employees on Monday reported to work for the first time at the Athens-Oconee plant, which will become the company's global source for small track-type tractors.

The new restaurant on West Broad Street opens Thursday, Nov. 15.
From demolition to near finish, it took around 112 days to construct the new Steak 'n Shake on West Broad Street, according to Ed Lane, project engineer for Smith Planning Group in Oconee County.
