Houston County's population could exceed Bibb's

Houston County's population is expected to surpass Bibb by this time next year.

That's according to current census numbers.

From July 2010 to last year, Houston County's population jumped six percent.

Bibb, on the other hand, actually dropped one percent.

Now, Houston County has a total of about 150,000 people.

The Williams are one family who are used to moving.

"This will be our 17th address," says Paulette Williams, unloading the suitcases from their car.

But now, they have a permanent place to call home.

"We just fell in love with the people, the neighborhood, and the community," she says.

Williams and her family moved to Warner Robins in 2004 when her husband was stationed at Robins Air Force Base.

Curfew extends with new fireworks law

As of Wednesday, it's legal to shoot fireworks between 10 a.m. and midnight every day.

According to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department, the curfew extends Friday, Saturday, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day from midnight to 2 a.m.

Fireworks may not be discharged within 100 yards of a nuclear plant or business that sells or refines gasoline products, the release states. Fireworks may also not be discharged indoors or near schools.

The new state law, the release says, preempts local city ordinances, which means the law overrides the city's noise ordinance.

Unless fireworks are being discharged within the areas or time frames mentioned, the release says the police cannot prevent people from shooting off fireworks during the allowed time frame.

Wellston Winds host Star-Spangled Concert


The sounds of patriotism filled the air in Warner Robins Wednesday night. The Wellston Winds hosted a Star-Spangled Concert at the Museum of Aviation.

The all-volunteer group is a community wind ensemble made up of musicians from throughout the community.

It includes everyone from high schoolers, to music teachers, and even former Air Force Band members.

Tonight, the group played various patriotic favorites, from 'God Bless America,' to 'America the Beautiful.' They also paid tribute to former service members with an armed services melody.

Officers say plan ahead for concert traffic

We are just a few days away from the much-anticipated Warner Robins Independence Day Celebration.

For the first time, the event will be held at the Museum of Aviation.

There are a few things to remember, though, so you spend more time enjoying the music and less time stuck in traffic.

"We've had to re-invent the wheel for this event," says Assistant Chief of Warner Robins Police, John Wagner.

With a new location, that meant a change in plans for traffic and patrol.

"Expect traffic delays," says Wagner. "That's 15,000 folks going to one place."

Parking will be in the field in front of Anchor Glass along with a handicap lot on Booth Road.

"It's not a place to sit and tailgate," he explains. "You're not allowed to bring your grill out there."

There are two ways to enter the parking area:
