Some optimistic about Warner Robins unemployment rate


Unemployment rate in Georgia has been a hot topic. With Georgia ranked as having the highest rate, many are taking a closer look at the numbers in their local cities.

In Warner Robins, unemployment is at 7.1% from 7.7%.

Unemployment in Warner Robins is actually higher than it was at the same time last year where it was 6.9%.

According to the Department of Labor, Warner Robins lost 200 jobs this September.

Angie Gheesling at Houston County's Development Authority says that's an effect of the sequestration at the Air Force Base. But she says there's an upside to the loss of jobs.

With the amount of talent lost from the base, she thinks people ready to work and skilled to do highly technical jobs, make Warner Robins more appealing to potential businesses.

Proposed Government Regulations Are Challenging to Members' Electric Bills

REYNOLDS/PERRY/WARNER ROBINS/COLUMBUS-Proposed government regulations are expected to be extremely challenging for Flint Energies member bills, according to Chief Executive Officer Bob Ray.

“Since 2008, the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has generated at least nine new regulations which attempt to reduce coal-fired generation for power plants,” said Ray. “Just two of those regulations have already cost Flint members $105 million.”

“These regulations essentially prevent construction of future coal generation plants,” he said. “The new ‘Clean Power Plan’ which has been proposed gives Georgia no credit for already reducing emissions since 2005, sets targets for renewable energy and efficiency which will cost more than they save, calls for more natural gas generation but no more gas pipelines to get the gas into Georgia….and effectively destroys affordable energy for our members.”

Flint Energies Engages in Emergency Preparedness in October

REYNOLDS/PERRY/WARNER ROBINS/COLUMBUS-Flint Energies undertakes constant effort in emergency preparedness throughout the year, but several events in October have sharpened the skills of the cooperative’s employees, according to Sr Vice President Jimmy Autry.

“Each year, we plan a tabletop exercise where employees come to a meeting room expecting to see a disaster that needs a response,” said Autry. “It’s part of the inside joke is to call the tabletop event “Hurricane Jimmy” since I invent the challenge for our team.”

This year, employees gathered to respond to the multiplying disaster of tropical force storm winds, flooding rains and a security breach into the Warner Robins Service Center location. As the event unfolds, a disaster team of employees that is assigned leadership on the spot evaluates the needs and calls upon resources to respond.

'Haunted House' is the old police station


Warner Robins Police Department invites you on an extraordinary, extra-scary walk through their haunted house.

The last time the department hosted a haunted house was five years ago, but they've never done it like this before.

They're using the old police station as the building of terror. They've decorated the rooms with skulls, scary dolls, and blood stains.

Actors will dress up during show nights, frightening people along the way.

Designer Mike Jones says an old jail offers the perfect scare.

"Well it does give a good feel to it. Especially with the electric chair. With that theme. It's an old building, you can get a lot of good haunts in an old building. It's just something about it," said Jones.

He's designed haunted houses for 15 years.

"I've actually had people pee on themselves," said Jones
