Gov. Robert Bentley will continue his Road to Economic Recovery Tour today with a series of stops in Andalusia in Covington County. During his visit to Andalusia, Gov. Bentley will also throw out the first pitch at the opening ceremony of the Babe Ruth World Series.

Thursday’s tour will begin with a lunchtime visit to David’s Catfish at noon. Gov. Bentley will then visit the Andalusia campus of Lurleen B.
