    Joint STARS aircraft undergoing work at a contractor facility may have been sabotaged. A tersely worded statement issued by Robins Air Force Base on Tuesday indicated that workers at Northrup Grumman’s Lake Charles, La., facility have discovered severed wires on an E-8C jet. “To ensure the integrity of the maintenance process, we are working with Northrop Grumman to get to the root cause,” the statement added. “The matter is currently under investigation and more details will be released as they become available.”

    A controversy between Macon City Council and the city administration over houses built by the city with federal funds has been simmering for the past couple of years. Now the issue has come to full boil. During a City Council Public Properties Committee meeting last week, several council members blasted Mayor Robert Reichert and Wanzina Jackson, the city’s director of the Economic and Community Development Department, about repeat issues pointed out in city audits that are related to that department. The main question from the council: Has the city spent money from the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development...

    Macon city councilman Erick Erickson says he plans to vacate his council seat within the next six months. He says he's leaving council to start a new full time job: hosting a daily radio talk show on Atlanta's WSB. "It at some point will become impactful to my time on council," says Erickson. His show will air Monday through Friday from 9 pm. to 12 a.m. beginning this Tuesday. He says he's been working on the deal for several months but just signed the contract last week.

    Election Day is, at least in part, held together by rubber bands, pencil grips and duct tape. Not to mention homemade brownies and shortbread cookies. At the polls Tuesday, while Georgians are electing their next governor, behind the scenes and the voting machines, everyday office supplies and occasional baked goods will serve the democratic process as well as any public servant. On Monday, the back room at the Bibb County Board of Elections, what with all the hard-plastic bins crammed full of notebooks and how-to-vote postings and pens and electronic-ballot cards, seemed more like the drop point for a camping...

    A Warner Robins couple faces murder and cruelty to children charges after medical crews found their 2-year-old son starved to death inside their home. 23-year-old Sade Shamon King and 25-year-old William Thomas Davis III are in the Houston County Jail without bond. Investigators and neighbors say there are many unanswered questions about why D'Shawn Davis was isolated and neglected for nearly a year inside his Tiffany Place home. JoAnn Smith, a neighbor, says she was shocked when the couple who lived next door were arrested Tuesday and accused of starving their son. "Believe it or not. There's food in the...

    The Department of State is issuing this Travel Alert to caution U.S. citizens of the potential for anti-U.S. demonstrations in many countries in response to stated plans by a church in Florida to burn Qur'ans on the anniversary of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. Demonstrations, some violent, have already taken place in several countries, including Afghanistan and Indonesia, in response to media reports of the church's plans. The potential for further protests and demonstrations, some of which may turn violent, remains high. We urge you to pay attention to local reaction to the situation, and to avoid areas where...

    At the height of America’s worst postwar recession, in September 2008, a computer glitch caused the Georgia Department of Labor to issue 46,373 duplicate unemployment check deposits, a financial error that initially cost more than $12 million. Almost two years later, the state has yet to recoup all the money, according to a report from the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts. The Labor Department says it is still trying to recover $115,000.

    The Warner Robins Patriot ^ | September 29, 2009 | GENE RECTOR
    ROBINS AIR FORCE BASE - Frankly, the future of Joint STARS at Robins Air Force Base is sitting precariously between a rock and a hard place. On one side, the cantankerous, underpowered, 40-year-old JT3D engines that power the ground surveillance jet must be replaced in short order. Heroic -- and very expensive -- maintenance to keep the vital system flying can't continue indefinitely. Degraded aircraft availability, diminished flight efficiency and inadequate onboard power will eventually push the weapon system past the point of viability. On the other hand, the rising cost of re-engining...

    Tuesday, March 31, 2009 Washington D.C.: President Obama unveiled a new White House initiative designed to stimulate the economy, resuscitate ailing General Motors, and simultaneously support our federal and local undercover agents. “This plan brings Government/Business collaboration into a new era that breaches boundaries that were, up to this point, seemingly impenetrable.” The President said in an impromptu press conference late this afternoon. “As interim CEO for General Motors, I am in the unique position to offer the United States Government a deal too good to pass up!" “This Covert Agent Revitalization Plan (CARP) addresses the long overlooked problem of...
