SAVANNAH, GA (WTOC) - Savannah's Deen family, Paula, Jamie and Bobby, are pictures on the cover of the 2011 Georgia Travel Guide which was presented on Tuesday at Leopold's Ice Cream Shop. The guide provides information for tourists and the Deen's who are no stranger to tourism. Their restaurant, The Lady and Sons, is one of Savannah's biggest draws for visitors to Savannah.

"I would argue that Paula Deen is a national figure. So I think putting her on the cover of the magazine denotes a national feel for Georgia. The rest of the world knows Paula, knows both of the boys. So having them here and having them local here is wonderful for the state," said Stratton Leopold.

Close to 750,000 will be distributed through the state's 11 visitor's information centers, including the one in Savannah.

The cover photo was taken at historic Wormsloe.

    A Savannah woman is giving back to the homeless community and making them look good in the process. Besty Rothman hosted her third annual event helping at the old Savannah city mission on Bull Street today. She and a team of volunteers gave free haircuts, manicures, warm meals, and much more to people who stopped by.  Rothman, a licensed cosmetologist, said she organized the event to honor her late sister and to give back to the community.
