Rev. Jesse Sims, director of the Hogansville Housing Authority, who at the time did- n't know of the undercover drug operation, told the Hogansville city council at their last meet- ing that there was a problem with drugs at the Sunset apart- ments. He said that it was so bad that you can get "curbside serv- ice" after 5 p.m. until 3 or 4 o'clock in the morning. He said that it was so bad that he could- n't rent some of the apartments over there. He said that many of the res- idents were "prisoners in their own homes." Sims said that it was even dangerous for police to go over there without backup. Sims said that there were drugs in the other two housings projects, Head and Melson, but Sunset was the worse. "This drug problem has been going on for three or four years," he said. He said that the police hard- ly ever patroled the area. City Manager David Aldrich disagreed. "Our police are absolutely doing their joffs." Last weeks statement by the city manager proved to be cor- rect after the drug operation came to a head. Aldrich stated after the council meeting that he would respond to Sims allegations at the appropriate time. Aldrich responded this week. "I am pleased to announce that the appropriate time is now," he said. "We have known for months that a large operation was tak- ing place here in Hogansville." We knew that the sheriff's department was conducting an undercover operation through Announces Dates 19, 1999 ; Fixing of qualifying fees ; 21-2 131 (a)(1) - 1 of the election year 23, 1999 ; Adopting calendar of events ; n/a - resolu- announcing election and fixing dates and fees 19, 1999 ; advertiseelection ; 21-2 132 (c)(3) - at least prior to the opening of the qualifying period 26, 1999 ; (Including qualifying fees) )tember 7, 1999 ; close qualifying for write in 21-2-133 - No later than the Tuesday after the first Monday in )tember 13, 1999 ; open qualifying for candidates ; 21-2- 2nd Monday in September 8;30 a.m. tember 17, 1999 ; close qualifying for candidates ; 21-2 (c)(3)(a) - Friday following 2nd Monday in September 4;30 ,1999 ; Public notice of election ; 21-2 9(b) - at 30 days prior to the election 1, 1999 ; (newspaper) ; 4, 1999 ; Close voter registratiop ; 21-2 224(a) - 5th the dates of the election 2, 1999 ; General Election ; 21-2 9 (b) - Tuesday fol- the first Monday in November 11, 1999 ; Run-off election ; 21-2 501(c) not earlier 14th day and not later than the 21st day following the to Close for Labor Day Library will close for the Labor Day hel- en Saturday and Monday September 4 and 6.

Aldrich said that he was sorry that the timing was such that Mr. Sims concerns could- n't have been differently. "I was trying to wait until the opera, tion was completed, the War- rents issued and the arrests made," he said. Aldrich said that it was dif- ficult to accept the scolding received at last weeks council meeting without rebuttal, but he said he knew they were doing the right thing and in time they would be vindicated. "I trust Mr. Sims has all the leverage he needs now to remove many of the undesir- able elements in Sunset Homes,"he said. "We will do all we can within the law to help assist Mr. Sims to rid Sunset Homes of drug dealers. "I strongly believe no one should , be held hostage in their own homes as Mr. Sims indicated," J.  , he said. CALLAWAY'S DION BOYKIN gains short yards against Macon.
