Groups help provide locally grown food for schools


Going green while fighting hunger and boosting STEM education in local schools, that's what Ellis Jaxon Farms and Americans for Schools are trying to do by growing organic food at the second Warner Robins school so far, Westside Elementary.

The new technology can grow plants in compact towers,

which means vegetables and fruits can blossom without soil, pesticides or light.

The organizations say the system at Northside High can feed about 30 people a day. That's more than 32,000 people a year.

Students received a $10,000 grant to build the compact towers.

Warner Robins scouts' trailer stolen


A Boy Scout troop in Warner Robins was devastated when they saw that their equipment trailer had been stolen.

Scoutmaster Elmer Carr says late Tuesday night or early Wednesday morning, someone took the trailer from Christ United Methodist church where the troop is based.

Carr says thieves also broke into a storage container at the church and took a golf cart. He says a month ago, someone attempted to steal another trailer, but were foiled by a bootlock on the wheel.

The trailer was filled with camping equipment and Carr says it won't be easy to replace.

Reps from Nunn and Perdue Campaigns to Attend Chamber’s 7th Annual HobNob

Reps from Nunn and Perdue Campaigns to Attend Chamber’s 7th Annual HobNob

WARNER ROBINS, GA- Former Governor Sonny Perdue and Mr. Ron Martin Jr. to attend the Robins Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Annual Middle Georgia Regional Political HobNob.  The event will be held on Thursday, September 25, 2014 from 5:30 to 8:00 p.m. at Central Georgia Technical College’s Warner Robins Campus- 80 Cohen Walker Drive.  

Presented by Cox, this event is designed to be an old fashioned political rally with an expectation of at least 250 guests to attend.  The purpose of HobNob is to give Chamber members and others in the community an opportunity to meet with candidates and representatives from their campaigns on a one-to-one basis.  The Chamber has invited all candidates appearing on the 2014 ballots, including both senatorial candidates Perdue and Nunn, who have strong ties to Houston County, as well as both gubernatorial candidates Deal and Carter.

Golden Olympic Senior Games in Warner Robins this week


The Georgia Golden Olympics are taking place in Warner Robins this week. The games are for adults 50 years of age and older, but as 13WMAZ's Paula Rotondo found out, there's nothing senior-like about the energy these athletes bring to the games.

Pitching, ringers, Compound Bows, and Recurve Bows are just a few terms I learned at the Georgia Golden Olympics.

The event offers some of your typical Olympic games, including archery, but they offer a bit of a southern twist by bringing in horseshoes.

The games are designed for people over 50 years of age, and as Dane Clark explains, it's not all about strength.

He says, "They're not based off having to be he-man strong or you don't have to be super physically fit, sometimes just a basic walking for someone that's in their 70s or even in their 80s, sometimes that's plenty of exercise."

It will have 10 ball fields, walking trail, and other features for kids and adults. But Alvin Robinson says the city has forgotten about another park.
