The new budget was approved without a dissenting vote or any discussion during the regular meeting. Mayor Wilson St. Clair did gavel to order the regular meet- ing of the Hogansville City Council promptly at 7:00 p.m. Monday, June 21. All city council members, Mayor St. Clair, City Manager David Aldrich, clerk Diane Carter, and attorney Dan Lee were present. The first business item was presented by Hogansville Police Chief Hilton Odom. At the last council meeting he was directed to study and investi- gate the parking on College Street near C's Pizza. Odom said, "Safety is the primary issue." City attorney Dan Lee was of the opinion that parking on the narrow street could expose the city to some liability. Council member Jack Dollar made a motion to not allow parking and the measure was passed S-0. The 71/2 acres of Mr. Lanier on Main Street was broht before the Hogansville Zoning Board on June 10 at a 4:00 p.m. meeting. They stressed to Lanier and his attorney the odor problems of natural gas in that section of East Main Street near the Archery Store. The board recommended that a public hearing be held on the zoning issue. The city council members agreed and the public hearing is now scheduled for August 2 at 6:30 p.m. This is the same issue already voted down by mayor and council. Lanier wants to place a Pine Harbor mobile home sales lot on the property. The Georgia Public Service Commission has returned to the matter of gas pipe in the city's system. They want two things. First, Hogansville will replace the 16 miles of cast iron pipe that still remains and that a gas leak sur- vey be conducted by the Southern Cross Corporation. The pipe is to be replaced at the rate of a mile per year for the next 10 years. The city manager felt that "this is a good and prudent request." The next Hogansville City Council meeting will be Tuesday, July 6 at city hall. WATERMELON TIME Ted Smith/Staff Grantville Councilman John W.

Herald Is Now Home News The Hogansville Herald has been the local newspaper for residents of the area since 1944. Now the newspaper is tak- ing a giant step forward to bet- ter serve the growing popula- tion and more effectively help advertisers reach this impor- tant market. First, the name has been- changed from The Herald to The Home News, to accurately reflect the role the newspaper plays, and also to provide a more distinctive identification from the Times-Herald of Newman, and several other Heralds in the area. The Hogansville Home News will continue the old Herald's tradition and role, just under a different name. Secondly, more than 4,000 copies of the Hogansville Home News will be mailed directly to city and rural route addresses and post office boxes served by the HogansviUe and Grantvflle post offices. These 4,000 editions will be free to the recipients and deliv- ered to their mail boxes each week, not thrown on the road- side or yard. Current paid subscribers of The Herald will now receive the Home News, including those outside the Hogansville- Grantville area. In addition, several hundred copies of the Home News will continue to be available for purchase at vari- ous retail outlets and vendor racks at 35 cents per copy. We welcome your com- ments, by mail or telephone. You may write to the Hogansville Herald (Home News), PO Box 426, Hogansville, GA 30230, or call (706)846-3188. ii the Pilot Club have selected different areas in our town to pick up litter.
