Curfew extends with new fireworks law


As of Wednesday, it's legal to shoot fireworks between 10 a.m. and midnight every day.

According to a news release from the Warner Robins Police Department, the curfew extends Friday, Saturday, New Year's Eve and New Year's Day from midnight to 2 a.m.

Fireworks may not be discharged within 100 yards of a nuclear plant or business that sells or refines gasoline products, the release states. Fireworks may also not be discharged indoors or near schools.

The new state law, the release says, preempts local city ordinances, which means the law overrides the city's noise ordinance.

Unless fireworks are being discharged within the areas or time frames mentioned, the release says the police cannot prevent people from shooting off fireworks during the allowed time frame.

The sounds of patriotism filled the air in Warner Robins Wednesday night. The Wellston Winds hosted a Star-Spangled Concert at the Museum of Aviation.

The all-volunteer group is a community wind ensemble made up of musicians from throughout the community.

It includes everyone from high schoolers, to music teachers, and even former Air Force Band members.

Tonight, the group played various patriotic favorites, from 'God Bless America,' to 'America the Beautiful.' They also paid tribute to former service members with an armed services melody.

Officers say plan ahead for concert traffic


We are just a few days away from the much-anticipated Warner Robins Independence Day Celebration.

For the first time, the event will be held at the Museum of Aviation.

There are a few things to remember, though, so you spend more time enjoying the music and less time stuck in traffic.

"We've had to re-invent the wheel for this event," says Assistant Chief of Warner Robins Police, John Wagner.

With a new location, that meant a change in plans for traffic and patrol.

"Expect traffic delays," says Wagner. "That's 15,000 folks going to one place."

Parking will be in the field in front of Anchor Glass along with a handicap lot on Booth Road.

"It's not a place to sit and tailgate," he explains. "You're not allowed to bring your grill out there."

There are two ways to enter the parking area:

Centerville celebrates 4th of July early

The rain cleared out of Central Georgia in time for an early Fourth celebration for the folks in Centerville. The city hosted its 2nd annual Independence Day Celebration Tuesday night.

Hundreds gathered outside of city hall to celebrate the upcoming holiday.

People were able to enjoy many different food vendors, live entertainment from local acts and the headlining group, The Swingin' Medallions.

Children got their faces painted, jumped in a bounce house, and even tried to dunk a fireman in the dunk tank.

Houston deputies find pot plants


It started off as a search for a person who was supposed to be in court, but ended up as a drug bust. According to a news release from the Houston County Sheriff's Office, deputies were looking for 36-year-old Jonathon Johnson who was wanted for failure to appear in court. When they went to get him, the deputies smelled marijuana. They say they got a search warrant and narcotics officers found what they call a large marijuana grow operation at 122 Orchard Road.

Radio operators train for emergencies


Being in the dark is a situation many Central Georgians find themselves in each year.

Storms, fires, tornadoes and ice can also knock out communication. That's where The Central Georgia Amateur Radio Club and the Middle Georgia Radio Association come in.

The clubs held their annual Field Day operating event on Sunday in Warner Robins.

When a disaster strikes and power is out, communication is important. And if cell phone towers are down, Mike Cook says radio operators help keep people in touch.

"When communications are down for instance a tornado or something where there are no cell towers because they've been blown down or something like that, then we can communicate with law enforcement and hospitals," Cook said. "We can get ambulances and things like that."
