15-year-old loading laundry for the needy


ID=30000929

It's something most people don't look forward to: the laundry. But one 15-year-old girl is spinning the chore around to touch the lives of people in need.

Caroline Gowan washed clothes tonight at Git-R-Dun Too laundromat in Warner Robins, but the loads weren't her own.

Eugene Tharpe says he doesn't have a job and washing and drying clothes can be a burden. "A blessing to me because you know when, when you aint got no other means. Clothes... dirty clothes just pile up, pile up, pile up, and you gotta wear some of those dirty clothes twice," said Tharpe.

Repairs to be made on Gunn Road in Warner Robins


Construction will be underway on Gunn Road starting Monday.

According to a press release, as part of the SPLOST Road Improvements Program, Houston County Public Works will be closing Gunn Road from Willow Way to Eagle Parkway from Monday until Sunday, July 19.

The organization urges the public to allow extra time for possible traffic delays.


Former council member to become police chief


Edward Tucker has already nailed down a new job. Right now, he is Centerville's Director of Police services.
Soon, he expects to become the city's police chief.

Until Tuesday, he was also a city council member, and that has some people in the community concerned because Tucker doesn't have police experience and some worry a conflict of interest exists.

Director of Police Services is his interim post. That's different from Police Chief.

Though he has 26 years of military experience, Tucker has never been a police officer or met the requirements that come with it, according to state requirements.

That's a point of contention for some.

And Tucker says a lack of training is something that's changing soon as the educator prepares for several lessons of his own.

Police limited in controlling fireworks noise


ID=29840083

Some Central Georgians celebrated Independence Day with legal fireworks, but others just wanted some peace and quiet.

Many people started shooting fireworks off on Friday and lasted all weekend long.

Over the weekend, Houston County's 911 center took 93 calls about fireworks.
They dispatched officers to 28 of them. That means, in most cases, law enforcement drove past the address, looking for anything illegal. They made phone calls to 10 more complaints. The rest of those calls received no action because they took place during the legal fireworks time periods.

Warner Robins Police propose fine for 'false alarms'


If you have a security alarm in your Warner Robins home or business, now might be a good time to make sure it's working properly.

Otherwise, it could cost you a fine.

The Warner Robins Police Department suggested an ordinance at the city council meeting Monday night that could reduce the number of false alarms they have to respond to.

With over six thousand false alarms documented last year Warner Robins police says it is costing them lots of time they could be on patrols.

One business they cited as an example had 67 false alarms last year because of their broken security system.

On the residential side, 29 was the highest number of calls. In that case, the motion sensor was set too low, where a pet kept setting it off.
