Members of the Athens High School Marching Band practice in the heat Wednesday in the AHS parking lot. High humidity made temperatures in the 90s seem much higher. Today, highs are forecast in the lower 90s but humidity will cause heat index readings 98 to 103. Above, a xylophonist carefully watches the drum majorette’s commands. At right, a bugler practices music and marching with her band mates. The band is directed by Steve Williams.
