Crematory Open in Warner Robins


Last spring, a funeral home and crematory caused a lot of controversy in a Warner Robins neighborhood.

Many didn't want it near their backyards.

Now, that business is open.

Some people in the Rosehill subdivision, near Highway 41 and Russell Parkway, say they're finally at peace with the property behind their neighborhood.

Rosehill homeowner for eight years, Deborah Rogers, always gets along with the neighbors.

But when she first peered over the fence at her newest one, she wasn't so sure about the relationship.

Ferguson forum tearing down preconceived notions.

The events in Ferguson have opened up dialogues nationwide. Wednesday night in Warner Robins, one pastor brought that conversation to Central Georgia.

13 WMAZ was at a forum directed at helping African Americans shatter preconceived notions they have about law enforcement and their rights.

"You have a right to remain silent. You're innocent until proven guilty. It's their job to prove that you're guilty," Pastor Troy Wynn said.

He says it's impossible to control the actions of police officers if you get stopped, so the best thing to do is be respectful and be educated.

Local pastors discuss Ferguson, police, race

As the national spotlight shines on tensions in Ferguson, Missouri, a local pastor facilitated a discussion on confrontations between citizens and police and race relations in central Georgia.

Tuesday, 10 pastors from Warner Robins, Macon and Fort Valley gathered around one table.

They discussed their responsibilities as religious leaders to build better relationships between their congregations and law enforcement.

They also talked about the perceptions among young people, especially minorities, of police officers.

"What can we learn from the events in Ferguson?" Pastor Wynn asks, opening the discussion.

These individuals came together not just as church leaders, but also community leaders, as they emphasized the importance of leading by example.
