In the only incident reports obtained by the Home News in recent days, one resident complained about a trespasser and a local business owner complained about a "gas drive-off." Sammy Lillywala, owner of the Shell Mart at 1945 East Main St, told police that on Feb. 13, "an unknown young black (person) pumped $2 worth of gasoline into a vehicle and drove off without paying for it. The offender was driving a burgundy sta- tion wagon, LiUywala told police, according to an report dealing with that incident. That event occurred sometime between 4:45 p.m. and 6:30, according to the report. Asked this week about "gas drive-offs," Police Maj. Kenneth Knox said that, surpris- ingly, when gasoline prices go up, reports of "drive-offs" actually decrease in Hogansville. Don't ask him to explain it, Knox aid, "You'd think it would be the other way around." Mike Vineyard, 72, of 213 Johnson St., told police on Feb. 7 at about 7:45 a.m. that some- body ha d been trespassing on his property.

IDA Flap Remains Unsettled in Meriwether Continued From Page 1A President Kip Purvis named secretary. The first was approval of the IDA's new contract with the County Commission. It reduces the IDA's budget by $146,000 this year to $300,000 and means reduc- tions through the 2010 expi- ration of the contract: The amount will grow by 7 per- cent this year and next and six percent the next four years. Keller voted against Barnes for chairman and Board member Robert Hines abstained. The vote on the new con- tract was 4-to-l, with Keller oppdsed. The votes on Caldwell, Moreland and Purvis were unanimous. The vote to ask the gov- ernor to remove Keller was 3-2 with Keller and Hines opposed. Both of them were appointed by County Commissioner Charles Neely, who also got Caldwell appointed, then tried to get him to resign after he and Neely disagreed on some IDA actions. Tribble said 2hesday that his newspaper columns "reflect my personal opinion" and have always been truth- ful" to the best of his knowl- edge. He was "surprised," Tribble said, that the com- .mission chairman would have such a reaction to some- body's personal opinions. Immediately upon his re- election as chairman, Barnes said that the board had made several mistakes in recent months, including giving up on plans for an industrial park in northwest Meriwether County, The IDA board had to pay some $100,000 to get out of a deal to buy some 1,100 acres from Mead/Wesvaco the paper company refused to sell for the per-acre price set by a Meriwether County"spe- cial master" after the proper- ty was condemned at the IDA's request. Notice If you need prayer for sickness or whatever, God still answers in vari- ous ways. God works in mysterious ways, his wonders to perform. In the Book of Acts 19:11-12, Paul sent out anointed clothes to the sick and God healed them. God said, "I am the same yesterday, today, and forever." Psalms 107:20 states that God sent His word and it healed them. Isaiah 53:5 declares that with His stripes we are healed. 1 Peter 2:24 also declares that by whose stripes we were healed.Jeremiah 33:3 says, "Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not."
