Benefit Breakfast for Cancer Patient's Wish

Sarah Kinsaul is a bubbly 6-year-old whose favorite color is pink and enjoys writing and coloring.  In March Sarah was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma, a type of bone and soft tissue cancer.  She has endured several rounds of chemotherapy and surgeries to remove part of her upper thigh in effort to get rid of the cancer. Sarah also has a wish to go to the Walt Disney Resort in Orlando, Florida.    

In partnership with Kid’s Wish Network the Warner Robins Police Department is teaming up with the Houston County Sheriff’s Office to make Sarah’s wish come true. 

Both agencies are hosting a Benefit Breakfast at FATZ Café on Watson Boulevard on November 20 from 8:00 a.m. until 10:30 a.m. to raise money for Sarah’s Disney World wish.  Breakfast includes pancakes, sausage links, maple syrup, butter and a choice of coffee, tea, orange juice or milk.  Tickets are $7.00.

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.

Williams Apologizes to Lee for "Cotton Field" Comment

WARNER ROBINS, Ga. --   Two Warner Robins City Council members, at odds over a comment about a "cotton field," shook hands Monday night.

John Williams publicly apologized to Daron Lee for the exchange that happened two weeks ago during a pre-council meeting.

Lee said he forgives Williams but can't forget the remark.

Speaking to the audience and Lee, Williams said, "Mr. Lee, I apologize for interrupting you. I apologize to America and the people of Warner Robins for my part in it. Nothing racial intended."

Williams told Lee he was "sorry" for a comment he made two weeks ago. During that exchange at the last council meeting, Lee told Williams he wasn't in a "cotton field."

Williams replied, "You should be."

Williams said Monday night, "I'm sorry for it, and I apologize." Then he reached out to shake Lee's hand.
