Money Recovered From the Trash

ZEBULON - Jody Harper at Amwaste got a call from a customer who had lost $1,000 when it ended up in the trash, and her trash had already been collected this morning. “I was crying myself as I was talking to her,” she said. The cash was in white bags with blue tags, and the woman asked if she could go digging through the dumped trash in a roll off container in order to find the cash.

Jody told her that she couldn’t because of safety reasons, but that she would have her guys look for it. Bob and Raymond were on top of the trash in the roll off container looking for the bags of cash and found them! “I was so thrilled for her,” Jody said. “It was a good day!”

Jody said that she has received calls about missing teeth and even an engagement ring over the years, and the stories haven't always ended like this. But today was a happy ending!

Happy Independence Day!
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - The 4th of July means a lot of things to different people. For some, it's a day to cook out and hang with friends and family. For others, it's a day to rest and watch or light some fireworks. For my family, it's a day to celebrate our freedom here in America as well as the sacrifices that have been made to keep us that way. Ponder on that this 4th of July.

Despite our many political differences, we are free to speak and assemble, to support who want politically, and we can speak out against our local, state, and federal government largely without fear of political retribution. Many countries do not have these freedoms. I am thankful for our veterans as well as our current military, law enforcement, and first responders who often work during holidays like this so we can safely enjoy some down time.

If you see someone who is serving this weekend (or has served in the past), take a moment to say thank you and maybe pick up the tab for their meal. A thank you goes a long way these days because we all know that freedom has never been FREE.

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."

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.
