Alan Dozier, GFC Chief of Forest Protection, said burning restrictions are the result of changes in the Environmental Protection Division's rules for Air Quality Control. "The basic reason for the ban is simply because smoke from outdoor burning con- tributes heavily to Atlanta's air pollution, especially in the summer," Dozier said. "Consequently, open burning in metro Atlanta and surrounding counties must be restricted." Local counties designat- ed for burning restrictions include Meriwether and Troup.

Schult Grantville Day 2002 on Saturday, June 8 will include an unusual activity -- a re- enactmentof the famous rob- bery of the BankofGrantville which occurred in 1932. There are also some unusual matters concerning the robbery itself, which isone of the most interesting heists I have ever heard of. These constitutethe "Four T's": the Teller, the Trail of Coins, the Typewriter Repairman,and the (Mythical) Tacks. The first astonishing thing I learned about this rob- bery is that thebank teller, Mr. Ed Brasch, is still living: he is now 96 years of age! Heresides in Grantville near the building which housed the bank. The robberywas quite a traumatic experience for Mr. Brasch because the rob- bers boundand gagged him and then locked him in the vault, where he remained for- several hours until the com- bination could be found. Finally, one of thebank offi- cials, Mr. Stewart Colley, was located in Newnan, whence he calledin the combination by telephone to the bank. You would think that if a band of robbers went tO the trouble ofrobbing a bank that they would be careful to secure the loot. But therob- ber holding the bag in the get- away car was so careless that he spilledthe coins onto the floor where some of them fell through a hole out onto theroad during the escape. It is unclear precisely where this trail of coins ended, but 0000ItllmN00rEcN.

Miss Rozelle Glanton (who was then 14 years old and is now 84 years 01d) saw the falling coins while standing in her yard, went over, and picked up seven silver dollars,which she then turned over to the Bank. Rozelle is the sister of Mr. TomGlanton (who also is still alive), who was the Principal of the Grantville High School for many years, and in whose honor the Grantvflle Municipal Complex was named. One of the robbers, Mr. R. P. Garvey, who was appre- hended after the chase ended in Greenville, served a prison sentence and then became a typewriter repairman. And, believe it or not, he returned to Grantville and succeeded in getting a contract from the City Clerk, Mr. O. E. Smith, Jr., to repair the City's type- writers ! ! Another interesting thing about the robbery is a legend which wasgenerated about it, namely that Mrs. Fanny Smith spread tacks onto the street in @ont of the getaway car to try to give it a flat tire. According to Gene Wilson (nee Smith), Fanny Smith's daughter, this did not happen. The Grantville Bank Robbery Chase went from Coweta County to Meriwether County where one of the criminals was killed (and the other two apprehended). The robbers wisely selected for their getaway car one of the fastes automo- biles of that time - The Whippet.
