Car Show Pumps Proceeds to Ga. Transplant Foundation

The first annual Chip'n Away at Heart Disease Cardiac Car Show was an all day event in Warner Robins. 

The parking lot of the Houston Mall was the stage for proud owners to showcase their cars, trucks, and bikes.

Out of about 60 cars, one truck comes alive. But these classics usually lay dormant as part of the first annual Chip'n Away at Heart Disease Cardiac Car Show.

"All car shows we go to helps support causes but Coach Malone is a really inspirational friend," says Lynne Watts from Warner Robins.

Organizer Chip Malone supports a cause that's very close to his newly mended heart. Malone received a heart transplant two years ago on November 3rd. 

"Got my chest cracked twice, 58 procedures. God has really blessed me," says Malone.

According to the Center for Disease Control, heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women. 

International City Rivalry Settles Region Title

International City Rivalry Settles Region Title

It's time for one of the biggest rivalries in Central Georgia and across the Peach State, the annual City Championship in the Warner Robins-Northside football game. And this years there's more than bragging rights on the line, there is also a region title hanging in the balance.

Over on the Northside the Eagles enter the showdown undefeated and ranked number one in 5A. Big blue is powered by a strong running game and special teams play led by seniors Curtis Martin and Keyshawn Hill and a defense that boasts 4 shutouts and yields an average of less than 6 points a game. Trey Payne and Rodney Levine turn on for big blue on that side of the ball.

Warner Robins City Auction Saturday

Savvy shoppers, penny pinchers and bargain hunters beware. The City of Warner Robins may have just the deal for you.

The surplus auction kicks off Saturday morning, and you will want to come with your wallet in hand.

City employees open the gates at the city barn at 9 a.m. Saturday morning for folks to get a sneek peak of what's for sale.

You'll find something of everything, from power tools and toys to electronics, clothing and jewelry.

If you're in the market for traffic lights, signal boxes or metal signs, there is a stock of those, too.

All of it comes from city surplus and items confiscated by police.

Procurement Manager for the city Kim DeMoonie says they will sell until it's all gone.

She said, "It's a good day for everybody. They all seem to be happy. Some of them get aggrivated when other people bid against them, when they really want something. Overall, it's a very good event."

Lawyer: Accused Houston Co. Couple are 'Good People'

William and Cheri Cox's attorney says they are stunned and confused by being charged with stealing more than $500,000 from an elderly neighbor.

James Rockefeller of the Rockefeller Law Center says the Coxes are "good people, who were trying to help someone out in the neighborhood."

A Houston County grand jury last week accused the Coxes of more than 30 counts of stealing money from 80-year-old Herbert Marquiss, who has dementia.

Rockefeller says Marquiss gave them the money voluntarily, because he was grateful for their care.

According to Rockefeller, Marquiss mostly interacted with Cheri Cox. He doesn't understand why William Cox is charged with any crime.

"He had very little interaction with the victim, or purported victim," he said.
