    In honor of this year's 44th Peachtree Road Race, I decided to pull some WAGA coverage from another era.  An era when Americans used to win that little race through Buckhead and Midtown.

Atlanta police are putting the finishing touches on a security plan for the Peachtree Road Race.

Law enforcement and first-responders have set up an operations center.

Atlanta Police Deputy Chief Rene Probst told FOX 5 that the center has 50 agencies represented and police are already deployed to the race area.

" We have officers on the race route. We've secured the race route as far as, you know, doing sweeps and that sort of thing, so they are monitoring the race route, and we'll do that throughout the night, as well as the end of the race route," Probst said.

Cameras will monitor the race route and most of downtown, Probst said.

The center will be operational in 12-hour shifts until after the fireworks at Lenox Square on Thursday night.

    Princeton University has agreed to contribute more than $24 million over the next seven years to the town of Princeton. The deal was announced Thursday and is set for consideration by the town government's approval on Monday.
