For 25 years people have been able to get a hot meal in Warner Robins at the First United Methodist Church's soup kitchen.

At the 25th anniversary, 13WMAZ's Paula Rotondo found the celebration was more about a volunteer who's been there since day one.

Cynthia Parker says it all started in 1990.

Yes - How many times have you said “yes” to something and then immediately regretted it? Have you said yes to a job or a volunteer obligation only to realize down the road that it is interfering with the important things in life or you just can’t give it the time it deserves? Well, sometimes you have to say “no” to certain situations, obligations and even certain people in order to say “yes” to yourself, your family and your life. Stepping away from a nagging obligation is so much better for you (and them) in the long run. Determine what your motivations and values are in life and use those to figure out how you want to spend your time. Say yes to you.

Warner Robins woman suspected of stealing $1 million


UPDATE: Capt. John Holland says Maria Trenam may have stolen as much as $1.4 million from a Warner Robins business.

He said they're still investigating how she did it and what she did with the money.

But he said investigators suspect the theft started soon after she started working for Warner Robins Surgical Associates in April 2011.

He called her "a trusted employee." The alleged theft came to light after doctors complained of discrepancies in their accounts.

The more investigators looked into the case, he said,the more missing money they found.

The business is located at 1701 Watson Blvd.
