Tyler Perry gives family new home
NEWNAN, Georgia — Movie mogul Tyler Perry delivered on a Christmas promise when he handed the keys of a new four-bedroom house to an 88-year-old woman who lost her rural Georgia home to a fire.
Rosa Lee Ransby and her seven grand- and great-grandchildren lost their home a week before Christmas.
Perry saw the story on a local television newscast and decided to rebuild the house. He also fully furnished it.
More than 20 family members attended ceremony in rural Coweta County on Friday.
Country star Strait buys resort stake
BOERNE, Texas — Country superstar George Strait is taking a swing at another of his passions: golf.
Strait says he and his business partner, Tom Cusick, have purchased the Tapatio (tap-uh-TEE’-oh) Springs Golf Resort and Conference Center in Boerne (BER’-nee), about 25 miles northwest of San Antonio.
Strait says they bought the resort from Textron Financial Corp. and that the deal was closed April 1. He does not provide terms of the deal in his Friday news release. Textron bought the resort in a foreclosure auction last June for $4.5 million.
