The Ahmad Arbery trial starts today, and the Georgia-Florida game—and with it, Frat Beach—is just a couple of weeks away. The Golden Ray is waiving the white flag indicating it’s on its final lap, and you’d think all of this would be more than enough for our area, but wait! There’s more!
A permit has been filed by the DNR allowing a film crew to close off Mary Ross Park and begin work in the water nearby starting this Saturday. The permit was given to Kimoyo Productions II for a film called Summer Break. For those of you who don’t know, most big Hollywood films use Cade names when they film so as to not draw too much attention. If you googled just about any article about Kimoyo Productions II you’ll find that it is the production company set up to produce Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, the sequel to the worldwide blockbuster starring the late Chadwick Boseman as Prince T’Challa, the heir to the mythical African nation of Wakanda.
