A very large group of people -- elected officials, business owners and community leaders -- crowded into the ALPHA Center’s meeting room Thursday for lunch, an update from the local legislative delegation and to remember the late Bobby Jones. ALPHA Center Executive Director Paul Napper said he considered Jones -- who he worked with for 25 years -- a mentor. In addition to being a staunch member of the Democratic Party, among his many roles, Jones served as a counselor at the ALPHA center.
