Organizing Your Photos: Have A Plan

Organizing Your Photos: Have A Plan

Last week we shared that the first step in getting your photos (digital and print) more organized is to gather them all in one place. Now that your dining room table is covered in boxes of prints and your computer is busting at the seams with your huge My Pictures file, what you do now?

As with any good organizing project, you need to take a little time to make a plan. Diving in willy-nilly may seem like the way to get started but it can lead to overwhelm and exhaustion fairly quickly.  Take a moment to survey the photos you have before you.

Mentally Ill Inmates Crowd Houston Co. Jail


Houston County detention officers say about a quarter of the people they take in need a hospital, not a jail cell.

They say the jail has become a holding tank for the mentally ill, and they're not equipped to treat them.

It's costing Houston County taxpayers thousands of dollars each day to keep the mentally ill off the streets.

During a recent class for new detention officers, chief detention officer Capt. Beth Shafer told them, "A lot of us don't have experience. We're not physicians."

Warner Robins man indicted in 1994 murder case


A Warner Robins man was indicted for murder Tuesday, 21 years after the crime was committed.

The indictment charges 45-year-old Homer Ridley III with one count of malice murder and two counts of felony murder, according to a news release from the Houston County District Attorney's office.

Summer Gleaton was found dead at her home on Terry Street on Dec. 1, 1994, the release states. Ridley is accused of drowning her in a bathtub while her wrists and ankles were bound, according to the indictment.

District Attorney George Hartwig wouldn't say what led to a break in the case. Both he and Warner Robins police chief Brett Evans declined further comment.
