National School Psychology Week

National School Psychology Week takes place from Nov. 8-12. 

School psychologists work with parents and educators to help ensure children have the learning support they need.  They are trained to help students succeed academically, socially and emotionally by addressing issues such as learning problems, behavior and discipline problems, social skills, mental health issues, problem solving, school safety, crisis prevention and intervention. 

Houston County Board of Education (HCBOE) school psychologists are dedicated to promoting academic and personal success for their students. The HCBOE thanks its 11 school psychologists: Stephani Adams, Leslie Allen, Jim Elkins, Ellen Tanner, Chris Wellman, Margaret Humphreys, Jay Jimerson, Amy Brett, Kristen Peaster, Cory Smith, and Amy Smith.

Grand Jury Accuses John Williams of False Statement

A Houston County grand jury has accused Warner Robins city councilman John Williams of lying to police.

 

They indicted Williams Tuesday on one count of making a false statement.

 

That's according to Dublin Circuit District Attorney Craig Fraser, who was called in as special prosecutor in the case.

 

In June, Williams accused a homeless woman of stealing his cell phone at a Waffle House, but the phone was later found in bushes outside the restaurant, according to police.

 

After being charged, Williams sent the media and other city officials an email that accused police of retaliating against him for political reasons.
