Hogansville Man Dies in Accident TWo Minor Wrecks Are Reported By Dan Stout Associate Editor A 31-year old Hogansville man died last Wednesday, July 7 from multiple injuries received in a one car crash. Gary Lee Jones of 507 Lincoln Street, Hogansville, was pro- nounced dead on arrival at the West Georgia Medical Center at or near 9:00 p.m. The tragic accident occurred one mile south of the city limits of Hogansville on U.S. Highway 29 near Hale Drive. The accident was inves- tigated by the Georgia State Patrol. Witnesses and physical evi- dence indicate the Jones vehi- cle was traveling at an exces- sive rate of speed. He was trav- eling north on U.S. 29 and left the highway on the west or left side and struck a series of trees. Jennifer Carter of Hogansville remembers that minutes before the accident, "a dark blue car passed me going 100 miles per hour." She recalls that it was still partially daylight and it was not rainiug at that time; however, the road surface was wet. Carter offered assistance until the police arrived. The Troup County Fire Fighters and EMT's used the "Jaws of Life" to extricate Jones from his 1997 blue Hyundai Elantra. He was wear- ing a safety belt. Jones worked in Peachtree City for Hoshizaki America as a machine operator. His parents are church mis- sionaries and initial reports indicate that they were over- seas at the time of the accident. The wife of Gary Jones works in Hogansville. The funeral was held last Saturday. Georgia State Patrol post 34 in Manchester worked two wrecks in North Meriwether County last week with slight injuries reported in both wrecks. Saturday morning July 3, Darlene Moore, 54, of Hogansville was traveling east on GA 54 behind Ronda M. Daniel of LaGrange. The Moore vehicle was fol- lowing too close, according to TFC M.B. Adcock, and struck the Daniel vehicle on it's left side while she was attempting at left turn into a private drive. After first impact, the Moore vehicle continued strik- ing the north ditch and coming to rest a in the highway. Both drivers complained of injuries, but were not trans- ported for medical treatment. Two GrantviUe women were involved in a two car accident Sunday, July 4 at 8 p.m., when a 1980 oldsmobile driven b Alice Marie Ellis, 43 was eastbound of Sewell Road where Sewell intersects with Foreit Road. When the Ellis vehicle attempted a left turn on Forest Road, the Ellis cutless struck the left side of Barbara A. Johnson's 1995 Mercury Mystique in the northbound lane.After impact, Ellis backed her vehicle back in Sewell Rood and stopped. The Johnson vehicle came to rest on the east shoulder of forest Rood. TFC L.C. Green issued a cita- tion to Ellis for failing to yield right-a-way and to Johnson for no tag.

Glen. , , , , , , , ,, , , ;rimes Publications Buys the Coweta Journal in Senoia i ' A sixth newspaper will join Star-Mercury group of Publications this week the addition of the Coweta al, a four-year-old weekly Spaper in Senoia, Georgia. ['1 e Journal was founded in 1995 and has been li each week since, homes mainly in East 'e nty border. ['1 e founding publisher was Baggarly, who was for- 'b., an editor with Trib Publications in Peachtree City. Baggarly will continue in the roles of publisher and editor at the Journal. Millard Grimes, president and CEO of the Star-Mercury group, said the newspaper will be printed at the Manchester plant, and its circulation will increase to 5,000 homes in the immediate Senoia area, which the Census Bureau reported last week was the fastest growing community in Coweta County from 1990 to 1998. Coweta as a whole was the fourth fastest growing county in Georgia. Grimes said the Journal's name will be changed to the Senoia Home News, effective with the edition of July 22, and a special advertising rate com- bination will be offered with the Hogansville Home News (for- merly the Hogansville Herald), another Star-Mercury publica- tion. "That will provide advertis- ers a convenient and economi- cal way to reach 10,000 homes in the Southeast Coweta and North Troup county," Grimes said. "Those are two very dynamic areas of Georgia. Senoia now has 1,500 people in its city limits and the area imme- diately around it includes more than 4,000 homes. "The paper will be delivered by mail to those homes just as the Hogansville Home News is being delivered to the 4,000 homes in its postal district. This offers a valuable, targeted audi- ence for advertisers. The news and photo content of the two papers will be upgraded and designed for the interests and information needs of people in those areas." Judy Steadman, a longtime advertising executive in Coweta and Fayette counties will be advertising director for the Senoia newspaper, and Nancy Hand, another former employ- ee of Trib Publications, will con- tinue as office and classified manager. "The Coweta Journal has survived in a tough competitive environment for nearly four years," Grimes noted, "and Tray Baggarly and his staff deserve a lot of credit. His other part- ners in the venture were Bill Todd, Pam Halland and Randy Todd, who have sold their inter- ests in the newspaper, but whose influence will continue to be felt." Grimes is a native of Coweta County and both his mother and father's families lived in Coweta for several generations.
