Happy Thanksgiving from Pike County Times!
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - Thanksgiving is a time that we traditionally think of family and friends, football, and eating way too much food. And these things, with the exception of eating too much, are good things.

But we need to take the time to think over our blessings this time of year. Do you have a roof over your head? That’s a blessing! Food? Electricity? Friends and Family who love us? Pets who love us unconditionally? Guess what? Those are blessings that are easily taken for granted if we are not careful!

We also need to take the time to love on those who have lost loved ones and miss them dearly this time of the year. Our next breath is not promised to any of us. Let’s make the best of today and every day of the upcoming Christmas season. Hopefully that habit of saying thanks and loving on people around us will become a habit that we can live out all year long!

J. Joel Edwards Public Library to Extend Amnesty for Overdue Books

ZEBULON - In the spirit of Thanksgiving the J. Joel Edwards Public Library will focus on some special patrons – those who have “long overdue items.” From time to time, patrons approach the front desk with items that they knew had been turned in but later evolved between the couch cushions, under the back seat of the car, in a packing box, at Grandma’s house in Texas, or in a child’s backpack. The 20-cents-per-day overdue fines have reached the maximum charge of $10 per item. Those fines can quickly become extremely overwhelming. Click here for more.

Happy Birthday to Pike County Times!
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - Happy 15th birthday to Pike County Times! On November 13, 2006, I had no idea that a blog post would eventually turn into a local online newspaper, but I answered my calling to step into politics, and it has changed my life.

I think that putting a spotlight on local politics has been a good thing overall too. Even reporting the bad can lead to changes for the good if we learn from the past.

Thank you to all who have encouraged and supported me in this endeavor. Thank you especially to my family for your patience on this labor of love. This newspaper wouldn't be possible without the support of both. ❤

Pike County Times Reauthorizes 2017 Freedom
of Information Act (FOIA) Request
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - Pike County Times became acquainted with Clayton Kuhles from MIA Recoveries, Inc. because of his work to bring home the airmen from the "Hot as Hell" crash that brought WWII Bombardier 1st Lt. Robert "Eugene" Oxford home to Concord in 2017. Kuhles discovered the crash site in 2006 in a remote part of India and the Defense POW/MIA Accounting Agency (DPAA) brought home remains from 1st Lt. Oxford. You can read more about his long journey home to Concord in 2017 by clicking here.

Pike County Times reported that the DPAA awarded a high bidder with a contract for Northeastern India Recovery Work in 2017. The solicitation was specifically to follow up on recovery of remains of WWII service members from sites in Northeast India where Kuhles had a lot of experience in recovery and a bid that was $428,000 less than the company who was awarded the contract. Kuhles placed a complaint with the Naval Inspector General, and Pike County Times placed a FOIA for information pertaining to this contract.

Pike County Times received an emailed letter from the Department of Defense FOIA Division advising that it regretted the delay in completing the request and asking if Pike County Times would still like to receive the information that has been requested along with its current caseload of 3,486 requests on August 28, 2020. (This request was one of 2,961 open requests on July 9, 2019.) The letter read as follows: "...we understand that due to the passage of time and changing needs of requesters, it is possible that you no longer have an interest in the documents you requested. Therefore, we ask that you review your enclosed request and confirm your continued interest in the requested information September 30, 2020." Pike County Times sent a letter authorizing the continuation of this FOIA by email today. When the information is finally received, Pike County Times will review and update the article.

BREAKING NEWS: Pike County Times Investigates
Former County Manager Ron Alexander
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - Pike County Times has walked through the hiring of many county managers over the years. Some employments have gone smoothly, and some have not. Pike County has a reputation as a bit of a revolving door of late with the exception of John Hanson staying for six years with Bobby Bickley staying six months before resigning and Ron Alexander resigning after only five months on the job. There was no exposé after Bobby Bickley left; it just wasn’t a good fit for him as county manager. But there were rumors of problems while Ron Alexander was here as county manager. Click here for more. This is the first of a completed three part series.

Griffin Police Department and the Media - PART I
By Editor Becky Watts

GRIFFIN - Pike County Times has covered news for Griffin and Spalding County when time allowed over the past several years. This investigation began because the Griffin Police Department (PD) began issuing press releases only on Facebook and not to the press at the end of January of 2019. The policy has since changed, then changed back, and then changed again, but lately Griffin PD has begun issuing regular press releases to the press again. In the course of this discussion over whether something can be called a “press release” if it is not issued and sent to the press, Pike County Times decided to investigate whether there was a difference in how the local and Atlanta media were treated as well as seeing if any news media were singled out for special treatment. This is the first part of a four part series of articles. Click here for more.
