Pringles Can? Marshall Street, who was vis- iting her aunt at 106 Askew Ave., reported a confronta- tion between herself and her ex-boyfriend, Phfllip McMillian. The report states that McMillian drove up next door to visit a friend. At this time, Moses came to McMillian's car to "speak to him." At this point, Moses said McMillian became qpset, saying she was in her face using obscene language. Reports state McMillian got out of hiscar and picked up a stick and hit her twice. Then he got into his car to leave and Moses picked up a charcoal grill and threw it at the car, causing some paint damage. She then threw a Pringles can at his car and he got out and threw it back at her. When he tried to get into his vehicle, she slammed the door on his leg. He got out, picked up a stick to hit her. She grabbed him by the throat, but he hit her twice, got into his car and left. Officers said due to the difficulty in determining the primary aggressor, no arrests were made but war- rant procedures were advised to both parties. *Rashad Wright of Shell Mart reported to police that someone in a silver S-10 pick- up, pumped $5 worth of gaso- line and drove off without paying on Saturday after- noon Daniel Mitchell of 3494 Youngs Mills Road said Mr. Chapman, owner of the car- wash on Hwy 29 S. refused to repay him $3 after the machine failed to wash the soap off his car on Sunday. Since this was a civil mat- ter, the police didn't get involved. *Melissa G. Hoy of 404 Green Ave. told police she lost or misplaced or someone took her wallet between 5110/02 and 5/17/02. She said the laser time she saw the wallet was at the Gas Stop in Hogansville.

By Bryan Geter After working for nearly two years on the city's com- prehensive plan, the Hogansville council voted Monday night to hold a pub- lic hearing on June 3 at 6:45 p.m. so the public can voice their opinion on the plan. The Hogansville Planning and Zoning Board along with Tom Sills of Chatt- bhnt RDC have v, orked dili- gently on the ten year plan to come up with the best plan that will benefit the City of Hogansville. "I want to thank the Planning and Zoning Committee who has work diligently on this plan," Councilman Jimmy Jackson said. Mayor Wilson St. Clair asked the planning commit- tee if everybody was satis- fied with the plan. Committee Chairman Wesley Duffey said, "every- body is completely satisfied. *In other business, the council said it was okay for a deck to be added to the back- side of 406 East Main Street in the Historic District. St. Clair said the Historic Commission is more inter- ested in what is built on the front side or in public view than that which is out of site. The deck has already been built. Councilman Jack Ixeidner said that statewide, zoning boards now, want more multi- purpose buildings in the downtown area. City Attorney Dan Lee said it is perfectly legal for this to happen, but the plan- ning and zoning board need to draw up an ordhce on- cerning multi-use buildings. *The council voted unan- imously to go forward with the T-21 contract with the Department of Transportation. The work is mainly for streetscape, primarily new sidewalks and lighting for the city's commercial district, encompassing East and West main Street, Johnson Street and US Route 29. Leidner said the complet- ed project would cost approx- imately $480,000. Funds will come from funds of the Hummingbird Festival and other organiza- tions as well as In-Kind Work by the city. The City of Hogansville will hopefully, at most, pay only $20,000. Frazier's Inquiring Mind Wants to Know Police Facts By Bryan Geter Hogansville Councilman Bobby Joe Frazier brought up several items during the regular council meeting Monday evening. Most of his concern was about the police department. He asked Hogansville Police Chief Hilton Odom if all the police cars were up to- date with equipment such as first-aid kits, spare tires, jacks, fire extingu'.mhers, etc. /'ou " " are the boss, Frazmr said, "you need to check it OUt." Then he asked if all the cars have shotguns and Odom answered, "Yes." Have your officers had their hepatitis and tubercu- lous shots, he questioned. Chief Odom answered, "that is optional." Frazier continued, "Does the cars have flashlights, bat- teries for their radios?" Then he asked, when did your officers last have a"drug busr' in Hogansville, not com- bining with the Troup County Drug Task Force, but just his department. Odom assured him that his department works with the sheriff's drug task force because his officers aren't trained in that area and don't have the necessary equip- ment. Frazier asked what it would take to get the officers trained and equipped. 'vVhat do we get out of the raid when the county comes in," Frazier asked. "Do we get any impound- ed cars, etc.?" "Are you aware there is a dlnag problem in Hogansville2 he continued. Frazier said there are people on the streets in Hogansville saying they do what they want. "I resent being accused of these accusations," Odom stated, "I put my integrity against anybody's." Frazier also asked City Manager David Aldrich if he had completed the inventory at the city barn he requested at the last meeting. Aldrich stated each department head is working on this matter, but it was not complete as of yet. He asked Aldrich to check on the speed limit sign at Brooks Road. "They are See FRAZIER, Page 2-A lib
