2020 Baccalaureate Service Is Cancelled

ZEBULON - It is with a broken heart that Prayer Power is announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Baccalaureate Service. After much discussion and counseling, we have made this decision out of an abundance of concern and caution for the health and well being of the graduates, their families, and all those participating in the service. Since the Governor extended his executive order until August 11, Prayer Power feels it is only prudent to cancel the service. We pray that all of the graduates understand why we are doing this and that they will follow God's will in their lives.

Prayer Power is planning to have a 2021 Baccalaureate Service, God willing.

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.

Tax Assessment Info for Pike County Residents

ZEBULON - Chief Appraiser Greg Hobbs spoke before commissioners in the April 28, 2020 meeting about the tax assessment that was coming for property owners in Pike County. Scroll down to his notes and then click on the letter that Appraiser Hobbs sent to Pike County Times at my request after that meeting. Tax Commissioner Donna Chapman spoke at the budget meeting tonight and advised that the county is looking at a 12.243 rollback, but the impact of this year's budget is going to be on the homeowner. There hasn’t been a reevaluation in 10 to 15 years when it’s supposed to be done every 3-5 years. Commercial will be done next year, but this year the homeowners will be hurting this year. The deadline for appeals in July 17.

Chief Appraiser Greg Hobbs walked through the process tonight. For people who say overnight my home value went up $100,000, he said that some of them did because they needed to. He asked residents to look at the value and see if that is correct. If there is a problem with the value, let them know. And the value came from surrounding properties in your neighborhood. The tax number hasn’t been set up for the county yet. He asked that residents come to the office and sit down to discuss things if they have questions. The number to the office is 770-567-2002.

My Thoughts on H.B. 734: Entreaty for Common Sense
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - HB 734 is entitled the "Ethics in Journalism Act" and is supposed to create journalism ethics board that will govern media entities throughout the state of Georgia. This letter basically walks through my reasons that the legislation is bad and encourages any who are already signed onto this legislation to walk away from it. This legislation is in clear violation of not one but two constitutions, and it deserves a very loud rebuke in the public square. Click here for more.

[Note from the Editor: This editorial was written last year and still stands against this terrible legislation that is in the hopper for this year. I sent my Entreaty for Common Sense every single co-sponsor on this legislation and did not receive even one response. You can monitor this legislation through Georgia General Assembly by clicking here.]

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

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 series of articles. Click here for more.
