Tents in the wind (10/21/11)
Several tents at the Covered Bridges of Putnam County Festival along U.S. 36 in Bainbridge were damaged due to high winds and rain late Wednesday night. The festival will continue through Sunday despite the setback. The tents were originally purchased through donations and the festival itself is a fundraiser for Friends of the Park children's programs.

Additional vendors are due at the Bainbridge site for the weekend, organizers said.
