First, at least one of them was cut entering or leaving the place. Then they dropped a six-pack of beer they were making off with, according to police. That means that police will have both fingerprint and DNA evidence to work with. The only thing they were apparent- ly 100 percent successful at was getting In other police activity in recent days: Gas "drive-offs" continue to be a problem in the Hogansville area, despite the fact that the price of gasoline has dropped about 20 cents a gallon along Interstate 85 in the city in the last month. An employee at Money Back Store No. 4 reported a drive-off on June 22, and a clerk at the Hummingbird Station Chevron Station reported one on the same night.

Many may remember that it was just over two years ago that Mike Williams was recognized by-the Board of Commissioners for bravely performing in the line of duty. He and fellow firefighter, Joel Cross, rescued Tracy Clark of Leisure Cove from his burning home and performed CPR until an ambulance arrived to trans- port him to the hospital. Mike said that in his entire career he had not until that day "played such a" crucial role in saving someone." His valiant resuscitation efforts now he faces his toughest challenge. Both he and his wife Christy were injured when the motorcycle they were riding was struck by a car and now they are both unable to work due to the sever- ity of their injuries. Christie suffered a fractured wrist, but Mike's injuries are dramatically worse. He sustained a fractured pelvis and hip dislocation and although he has recently been released from the hospi- tad he is still unable to walk and willre- quire a prolonged rehabilitation period. In addition, they have two young chil- dren to care for and as you can imagine this has created a very difficult situa- tion for this family.
