These Boots Were Made For Walking

These Boots Were Made For Walking

OK, I know it’s not exactly boot weather right now (Hello, flip flops!!!), but it is the perfect time of year to make sure your boots will be ready for walking in the fall.

Flint Energies Turns 75 Years Old

 

REYNOLDS/WARNER ROBINS/UPATOI – Flint Energies turns 75 years old today, according to Sr. Vice President Jimmy Autry. The not-for-profit member-owned electric cooperative received its charter from the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) on Apr. 23, 1937.

“Today brings back a lot of great memories,” said Autry. “But the most important memory is that of members working together to create a lasting organization to meet their own needs.”

Celebrating its 75th year of service in 2012 (incorporated in 1937), Flint Energies www.flintenergies.com provides energy services to residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural members in parts of 17 central Georgia counties.

Peach, Crawford Counties January Unemployment Rate

Peach, Crawford Counties January Unemployment Rate

Peach County's unemployment rate for January was 11.6 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

Crawford County's unemployment rate in January was 10 percent.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.
