Perdue defeats Kingston in Georgia Senate runoff

Russell Pkwy repaving could continue for two weeks


Russell Parkway repaving between Moody and Hwy 247 continues.

The work will continue for 10-14 working days, Warner Robins' Ruby Holmes says a city engineer told her.

That construction completion will depend on weather, and crews plans to work on the weekend to help make up for lost time due to rain.

Initially, a news release stated the work was expected to finish Monday.


Robins Federal Credit Union Blood Drive could saves over 95 lives

Robins Federal Credit Union Blood Drive could saves over 95 lives

Warner Robins, GA — The American Red Cross collected 32 pints of blood from Robins Federal Credit Union employees, members, and members of the community at a blood drive held on Thursday, July 17th at Robins Federal Credit Union.

Each unit of blood has the ability to save up to three lives. That means the blood collected at Robins Federal Credit Union’s semi-annual blood drive has the potential to save 96 lives.

The American Red Cross recently issued a state of emergency notice due to dwindling blood supplies. Natural disasters across the state of Georgia have contributed to the low supply. To find a donation location, please visit the American Red Cross website.

Group intends to give away 2,000 backpacks filled with school supplies this Friday.


The Warner Robins Housing Authority intends to give away 2,000 backpacks filled with school supplies this Friday.

According to the agency, the giveaway is part of its annual July Bash. The backpacks are free to any child who needs it, not only those in Warner Robins.

Executive Director of the Warner Robins Housing Authority Sheryl Frazier said about 40 volunteers showed up last week to help stuff the bags.

"We stuff them with supplies from elementary, middle school, and high school so we have all three groups. So we have bags for each educational level," said Frazier.

She says volunteers plan on doing more than giving away backpacks. They will give free haircuts to students, face painting, free food. There will also be a moon bounce house.

"People can bring their children out and then spend the day enjoying the activities," said Frazier.

City says those conducting a traffic study for the intersection need an extension.


Mayor Randy Toms says those conducting a traffic study for the intersection of Moody Road and Leisure Lake Drive are asking for an extension, one council members are willing to grant.

Some say it's one of Warner Robins' more dangerous intersections

Warner Robins Council met Monday night, and all members agreed to give Wolverton and Associates more time.

Toms says Wolverton and Associates will start on August fifth in order to include school traffic and get accurate results.

"They asked for a couple more weeks so that they could incorporate some more of the school. They want to get the study done during the time when people are in school because that increases the traffic," said Toms.

Mayor Toms says all other terms of the contract with Wolverton remains the same.
