• Wrens City Administrator Arty Thrift made a presentation to the Jefferson County Board of Commissioners during its work session Monday, Feb. 2, explaining to the commissioners the need for the county to either close Lucky Bridge Road or lower the road 15 feet. 
    “We’ve received a notification from the Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) Communication about our airport. Specifically, the approach from the west,” Thrift said.

Community

Patricia Edwards of the Jefferson County Historical Society said last week the society has plans to bring local history to life. 
On Saturday, March 25, the society’s museum at 112 W. Broad Street in Louisville will be open from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. with demonstrations of crafts and skills used in the past. Edwards said she and others are working to bring vendors to the downtown area.

Opinion

It’s a game changer; and, one we’re glad to see. 
Parental Accountability Court (PAC) is a program designed as a means to help parents behind on their child support become self-sufficient, moving from being a burden on the courts to a person who not only can pay but who does pay child support.
We join Jefferson County Chief Superior Court Judge Kathy Palmer, Wadley Police Chief Jimmy Butts and Jefferson County Sheriff Gary Hutchins in welcoming the PAC program to the county.
