All seven members of the new Augusta-Richmond County Coliseum Authority have been sworn in. Brad Usry, proprietor of Fat Man’s Riverfront Café, was given the oath this morning by State Court Judge David Watkins.

Bonita Jenkins and Joseph Collier were sworn in a week ago by Judge Watkins. David Hogg, Louis C. "Hap" Harris Jr., Shirley Darby and Chairman Cedric Johnson were sworn in by Superior Court Judge J. Carlisle Overstreet on June 11.

Conflicting travel schedules precluded a group swearing in.

The new authority’s first meeting is scheduled for 9 a.m. Tuesday.

I'm proud to know Hap Harris and call him a friend. He's an upstanding man and will do well on the Coliseum Board.
