Where were you on September 11, 2001?

ZEBULON - I haven't forgotten. And 21 years isn't enough to erase the anger or stop the tears that come to the surface when I talk about it. And I didn't lose a loved one there. I can't imagine the pain that they live with every day.

But I am the wife of an American Soldier who served two tours of duty overseas. Freedom. Duty. Honor. Service. Protecting our country. That's the American Soldier. Resilient. Strong. Faithful. That's the family of the American Soldier.

To those who ran to rescue others, you have my admiration and thanks because, while I know you would say that you were just doing your job, it's more than that to those who are rescued in the midst of the chaos. That same thanks and admiration go for our law enforcement, fire fighters, and first responders right here at home right now.

To those who lost loved ones in 9-11, I offer my prayers and condolences. Nothing can bring back your loved one, but I will remember with you. I will never forget.

Fly United States Flags at Half-Staff Honoring the Death of Queen Elizabeth II Immediately Until Sunset on the Day of Interment (currently unknown) A Proclamation on the Death of Queen Elizabeth II

WASHINGTON DC - her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II was more than a monarch. She defined an era.

In a world of constant change, she was a steadying presence and a source of comfort and pride for generations of Britons, including many who have never known their country without her. Queen Elizabeth II led always with grace, an unwavering commitment to duty, and the incomparable power of her example. She was a stateswoman of unmatched dignity and constancy who deepened the bedrock Alliance between the United Kingdom and the United States. She helped make our relationship special. The seven decades of her history-making reign bore witness to an age of unprecedented human advancement and the forward march of human dignity. Her legacy will loom large in the pages of British history, and in the story of our world.

As a mark of respect for the memory of Queen Elizabeth II, by the authority vested in me as President of the United States by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, I hereby order that the flag of the United States shall be flown at half-staff at the White House and upon all public buildings and grounds, at all military posts and naval stations, and on all naval vessels of the Federal Government in the District of Columbia and throughout the United States and its Territories and possessions until sunset, on the day of interment. I also direct that the flag shall be flown at half-staff for the same length of time at all United States embassies, legations, consular offices, and other facilities abroad, including all military facilities and naval vessels and stations.

IN WITNESS WHEREOF, I have hereunto set my hand this eighth day of September, in the year of our Lord two thousand twenty-two, and of the Independence of the United States of America the two hundred and forty-seventh.

BREAKING NEWS: City of Zebulon to Annex the VA Clinic
By Editor Becky Watts

ZEBULON - The City of Zebulon is in the process of annexing the new VA Clinic into the city limits of Zebulon. The VA Clinic is completed now, though it is not open quite yet, and that is the final step that was needed to begin this process that began many years ago with an agreement between the City of Zebulon and the Pike County Water and Sewer Authority. Click here for more.

UPDATED 7.23.22: Rumors are rampant that a halfway house for a substance abuse treatment is coming to Pike County based on the advertisement for the annexation of the VA clinic from Pike County into the City of Zebulon. Pike County Times spoke to the City of Zebulon and was advised that because the VA Clinic will be offering substance abuse treatment at the facility, there is specific language from OCGA 36-66-4(f) that is required to be in the public hearing announcement as follows: "...both the posted notice and the published notice shall include a prominent statement that the proposed zoning decision relates to or will allow the location of a halfway house, drug rehabilitation cetner, or other facility for treatment of drug dependency..." The City of Zebulon advised as follows: "The VA facility is not considered to be a halfway house as it does not have the capacity to house patients overnight for any type of treatment."

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.

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.

UPDATE 12.1.21: Nothing has changed. Persecution of one reporter continues by the Griffin Police Department, and the City of Griffin continues to allow it.
