Midstate Massage Therapist Recalls Olympic Memories

It's hard to watch this year's Olympic games play out without having fond memories of Georgia's time in the spotlight in 1996.
 
Yvette Oxford's tuned in and the footage has sparked her to dig up some old souvenirs.

"I have all the Atlanta 96 pins, she said. This is a Dream Team Kids' Sports Illustrated and all the players signed it."

Oxford, a licensed massage therapist, worked on dozens of athletes during the games when they played out in the Peach state. Oxford said she keeps all the badges, autographs and other memorabilia in a shoebox.

But she says this year's Olympics in London really highlighted for her how far her proffession has come in sixteen years.

"Back then I was the only massage therapist for the Olympics, and now they have teams of therapists. Back then we weren't as respected as we are now," she said.

Oxford says she has also worked on athletes during a couple of superbowl events.

Ignico Drive Gates Now in Place

Crossing gates are now up and working at the deadly Ignico Drive railroad crossing --  months ahead of schedule.

The Georgia Department of Transportation reported Thursday afternoon that the gates were in place.

13WMAZ's Jennifer Moulliet visited the crossing and reports that it's operational.

People in Warner Robins pushed the state and Norfolk Southern Railroad to install the crossing gates after a mother and her 7-week-old daughter died in a Memorial Day weekend collision with a train.

Mayor Chuck Shaheen says he lobbied the state to speed up its timetable, which initially said it might take as long as a year and a half.

The state says over the last five years, there have been five accidents and four fatalities at the crossing.

WRALL Meets & Greets With Fans

     The tradition continues for Warner Robins American Little League baseball. In 2007 the International City All-Stars won it all in Williamsport on the biggest stage and since that big win they have been to the Southeastern regionals, 4 out of the last five years.

     This year the team says they're goals are still the same, to get back to the big tournament up north in Pennsylvania. Some parents call this group the "Incredible 13" and Wednesday night as a reward for their efforts thus far, they hosted a meet and greet with the community.

    The boys have been on a hot streak since they started early this summer with 10 straight wins to capture district and state titles. And come Friday they begin their road toward a possible back to back regional championship. Besides the expected nerves and jitters, Team WRALL says they look forward to Friday night.
