15 Women Now Allege 'Abandonment' by Warner Robins Obstetrician

Warner Robins attorney Kelly Burke says 15 women now allege that a Warner Robins obstetrician abandoned them when they went into labor.

When Burke originally filed a complaint against Dr. Paul Harnetty with the Georgia Medical Composite Board in October, there were two women.

Both of them said Harnetty cared for them during their entire pregnancy, but did not tell them until their delivery date or late in the pregnancy, that he could not deliver their babies. That's because Macon and Houston County hospitals say Dr. Harnetty does not have privileges to practice there.

Robins Air Force Base Hosts Pancake Flip

Thursday is Veterans Day, but officials from Warner Robins and Robins Air Force Base honored the troops a day early on Wednesday at the 2nd annual Pancake Flip.

Mayor Chuck Shaheen was amongst the officials who honed their flapjack flipping skills while cooking up the hotcakes and then tossing them to dozens of children waiting with over-sized plates.

Installation Commander Col. Carl Buhler says they cooked up the equivalent of 6,000 pancakes Wednesday.

But the event wasn't all about fun and batter--it was also about honoring those who serve. 

"We wanted this to tie in to the Veterans Day weekend," says Buhler.

Buhler says the Pancake Flip is a long-standing Air Force tradition that started about 60 years ago.
