Open to thepublic, the cel- ebration for retiring Police Chief Moses Ector has been scheduled for 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Mar. 15, in Ca!yin Hipp Veterans MemoPial Park. During the celebration, any of those wishing to make a presentation to Ector will be encouraged to do so. Also during the celebra- tion, those desiring to do so can accompany Ector along a trip down memory lane, walking along East Main Street to the site of the old police station, which he worked out of as a rookie police officer. After the celebration, the parade of participants will be encouraged to continue to Jay's Place, across from Rite Aid, for a reception. This promises to be a moving experience not only for Ector, but for all those involved. For more information regarding the celebration, contact Michelle Toth or Linda Robinson at 706-637- 8990 or 706-637-6648 ByANDY KOBER Some people just fail to read signs. ' With work sehedutoia the railroad t oil.  East Main street, city Officials werepreed for- the road to be closed for several days. Signs were placed along Ga. Hwy. 54 from 1- 85 to the downtown area advising motorists, esper: eially tractor-trailers, that Main Street was closeff': to through traffic. This did not create a problem for small pas- senger vehicles as they could turn on Oak Street and cross the railroad tracks at East Boyd Road, See ROAD, Page 6A ROAD CLOSED, By Andy Kober WORK IN PROGRESS - East Main Street was closed to through traffic last week with work crews addressing issues on the rail- road tracks. The road was closed on Tuesday, M,a:. 4, with the anticipation it would only be closed for three days. It was still closed on Friday. New Burgesses Open on Main Street By tm/Kot OPEN FOR BUSINESS- Ribbon cut- tings were held last week to offi- cially open Scarlett's Attic and Best Little Warehouse, both located on Main Street. Both businesses are owned by Alan and B.J. Boyer. ByANDY KOBER On Friday, Mar. 7, two ribbon cut- .tings were held to officially open,new businesses on Main Street in Hogansville. i Attended by city officials, residents and visitors, the first ribbon cutting took place at Scarlett's Attic Antiques and More. Scarlett's Attic is located in the build- ing that previously housed Hogansville Pharmacy. WHILE THE outside has not changed much, the entire interior of the building has been refurbished and bears little resemblance to the pharmacy. The renovation is a grand example of an old building being repurposed. The building was purchased by Alan and B.J. Boyer and had a soft opening on Mar. 1. The second business celebrating a ribbon cutting was Best Little Warehouse Antiques, located where the Hummingbird Mall used to be. WITH HUMMINGBIRD Mall clos- ing, the Boyers decided to open a busi- ness in that building as well. The Hummingbird Mall actually featured a collection of vendors and some of those are anticipated to remain. There is room in the Best Little Warehouse for quality consignment and those interested can stop by store, or Born Again Antiques, or call 404-422-8504 to learn more. THOUGH both stores offer differ- ent merchandise and ufiique items, the inventories are best described as indus- trial, primitive, and rustic items, along with vintage lighting, collectibles, and antiques. SCARLETT'S Attic and the Best Little Warehouse are scheduled to be open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday. Both will be closed on Sundays and Mondays.
