Get Organized: Make a List

Get Organized: Make a List

Every since I was a little girl I have been in love with writing lists. My mother and grandmother were great list makers with columns of words sprinkled around the piece of paper. Today I still love a handwritten list as my ever present notebook of list proves.

However, my list writing days may be soon be over. Now there is a great online resource for printable lists of every kind imaginable - ListPlanIt.com. The categories of lists available on ListPlanIt.com range from family matters to financial planning to time management to fun.

Flint Appliance Center Store to Close

Flint Appliance Center Store to Close

 

The Flint Appliance Center at 924 S. Houston Lake Road in Warner Robins will be closing, before Apr. 30 or when the existing inventory is gone.

“Flint has been providing appliance sales as a member service since 1998,” said Sr. Vice President Jimmy Autry. “But we’ve made the decision to exit the appliance business this spring.” Autry said that Flint’s Appliance Center had weathered the economic downturn for more than four years, but that closing the store was the best decision for members in the future.

“We had some very good years serving our members in the decade of the 2000’s, peaking in 2006,” said Autry. “But the market has not rebounded enough for us to continue.”

Autry noted that the Flint Appliance Center market was constrained somewhat by a legal ruling that dictated the store only sell to members of Flint Energies. For this reason, the Reynolds location of the Flint Appliance Center had closed soon after it opened in 1998.

Crawford, Peach County Jobless Rate Released

Crawford, Peach County Jobless Rate Released

The jobless rate for Peach County in December 2012 was 10.6 percent.

Crawford County's jobless rate was 9.3 percent.

According to a state news release, unemployment rose to 9.2 percent from November's 8.7 percent rate, but it was down from December 2011 when the rate was 9.5 percent.

Officials claim the rise comes from a combination of factors, including a "slight increase" in new layoffs and a reduction in the area work force.

The uptick reflects a similar statewide trend. However, the jobless rate across Georgia only rose one-tenth of percentage point while metro Macon's rate jumped five-tenths of a percentage point.
