Senator Marty Harbin Introduces Legislation to Protect Girls’ Sports

ATLANTA - On February 25, Senator Marty Harbin (R-Tyrone) introduced legislation on Thursday to protect girls’ sports. This legislation would prohibit biological males in public or private schools from participating in athletic programs designed for females when competing against a public school. Harbin said, "Science clearly shows that men have a biological advantage over women in the arena of competitive sports. It is not fair to young women who wish to compete in sports to have to do so against men. This legislation protects a girl’s right to play sports on a level playing field.”

BREAKING NEWS: City of Zebulon Boil Water Advisory Has Been Lifted

ZEBULON - UPDATE 2.16.21: The Boil Water Advisory has been lifted for the City of Zebulon.

UPDATE 2.8.21: The boil water advisory is still in effect for the parts of Zebulon that had low or no water pressure. Samples have been sent off, and they should know something soon. What had happened was... The City of Zebulon is providing water and sewer to the new VA Facility north of town. The water lines must be installed below the sewer lines when boring under the highway to connect the east to the west side. When the water line was turned off in order to do the work, valves from the 1990's blew off because of the back pressure and needed to be replaced. The original problem has been remedied with the installation of thre new valves, but the City is still waiting on word from the state on the status of water samples that were sent in to be tested. The boil water advisory remains in effect until that time.

Southern Rivers Plans to Offer Internet

ZEBULON - Pike County Times has been covering internet and broadband initiatives in Pike County. Yesterday, a new possible outlet for internet was pointed out to Pike County Times online. Here is the result of a quick couple of emails to Erin Cook, Director of Marketing/Member Services Southern Rivers EMC:

"Southern Rivers Energy has been working on a plan to build a fiber network with a partner that will provide reliable, affordable high-speed internet to all of our members. We are still in discussions but have signed a non-disclosure agreement so we cannot share any other details at this time. We hope to be in a position to share more about the plan as well as a timeline, sometime after the first quarter."

Many thanks to Southern Rivers for being open with this. Pike County Times will provide more information as it becomes available since it is working from old DSL lines like so many other customers throughout the county.

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.
