• Twenty-four-thousand square feet is a long walk. That’s the size of a building in Gibson up for sale the Glascock County commissioners want to purchase.

    The building comes with 5.8 acres of land; and, at $52,500, it’s a deal almost too good to be true.

    It was such a good deal the commissioners had to act quickly; and, act they did.

    A provision of the SPLOST referendum in place when the current commissioners took office was to provide a new space for the sheriff and staff.


There might not have been much of it and it might not have lasted very long but these local kids did their best to make the most of every flake of snow that fell Saturday morning. 



Dear Editor:

On behalf of the Jefferson County Ga Chapter SCLC, we would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to the citizens of Jefferson County and surrounding counties for help making the 2016 MLK Unity Parade a great success! It was an overwhelming joy to see everyone come out and celebrate the life of Dr. King by participating or being a bystander at the parade.
