The Hogansville Planning and Zoning Board had previously meet with Larry Townsel for the purpose of rezon- ing so he could build multi-family town houses on each of the eight lots. Each home would be two-family and have two stories. The Zoning Board approved the measure and it was sent to the council for their consideration. In a letter from Townsel's compa- ny, Toaster Investments, Inc., he states, "Our company feels that they would not only improve the undeveloped land, but also put alternative housing deci- sions for new HogansviUe residents." The houses would be two-stories with three bedrooms and two and half bathes with a total of 1452 square feet. DURING the hearing, Beth Drake addressed the council with "major con- cerns." Drake, a resident of HogansviHe since 1975, wanted to ask questions to the developer, but no one from Toaster Investments was present, so she asked the council.

She said the city has culverts run- ning under Blue Creek Road and drams into the deposit area. Then, she said, it runs into Yellow Jacket Creek. She said that people throw garbage into that area. Then she asked what kind of struc- ture can be built there where all the rocks are. It will have to be bulldozered and problems could come that would affect her land, she said. Councilman Larry Dorrough said the development will be no different than any other. "The developer is I Chamber Seeking More Volunteers Janice Cook, president of the Hogansville Chamber of Commerce is looking for a few good men. Or women, for that matter. "Hogansville is coming alive again. There are over 24 busi- nesses open on east and west Main Street downtown alone. New subdivisions are going in. The Chamber and allied civic organizations like the Hummingbird Festival Committee and the Hogansvine Charitable Trust had a very good year last year. We'd like to do as much or more this year but we're going to need help." According to Cook, the Hogansville Chamber of Commerce successfully organ- ized last year's Memorial Day ceremony, the Hogansville Christmas Parade, Picnics in the Park and a rehab of Calvin Hipp Park. And Chamber members were also active with the fall Hummingbird Festival that drew over 4,000 people to the small West Georgia town and in getting nearly $400,000 in Federal and state grants. "This year we'd like to add a concert by the LaGrange Symphony at our amphitheater, maybe a tour of homes and to continue the work on the park. But to do so we'll need more workers. "The Chamber's first meet- ing of the year is Thursday, February 8, 7 p.m. at the library. We urge all businesses and churches to join. But you don't have to have a business in HogansviUe to par- ticipate, only the will to make Hogansville a better and more interesting place to live. "Any and all interested are welcome. Don't complain about our community. Come on out and effect positive change. We'd particularly like to encourage minority participation. After all, we're all in this togethe," she said. "Please come to the meet- ing or call me at Gaby's Caf6 (637 5144). It's going to be an active and fun year." you've got FREE PHONE minutes.

'BookShare' Program For Hogansville Hogansville Elementary School's Friends of the Media Center Organization is having its first annual BookShare Program. BookShare is an amazing program that will put more qual- ity books into the hands of our children and onto the shelves of their school Media Center. Through the BookShare pro- gram you have the opportunity to purchase books from Hogansville Elementary's very own "Wish List," share them with your children, and then share them again by donating them to the school's media cen- ter. A bookplate is placed in each donated book to show your club, family or business's generosity for years to come. You may donate in your child's name or in your family name. You may wish to remember a loved one, a special individual, or place an encouraging message from your business or club. Examples: 1. Donate a book in honor of your child's birthday and share it with the class. The birthday child will check the book out first and then donate it to the Media Center after he/she enjoys the book. The bookplate will be a lasting reminder of that special birthday. 2. Give books in honor of special to recognize the gift.
