Altamaha EMC Expands in Soperton

During the past week George McLendon and other employees of Altamaha EMC were clearing out the old Steve's Automotive shop. McLendon said that in time the building would be converted for office and warehouse.
The EMC already occupies the adjoining property where Mrs. Jeanette Johnson used to have her flower shop.

Unusual Axe Head Found Near Lothair




Harold Powell shows an old axe head he found this week while looking with Tommy Cullens on land owned by Tommy's son, Bubba Cullens. Harold and Tommy have spent many years collecting Indian artifacts and other old tools and metals.  Harold had one of the largest collections in the area, two or three thousand pieces all collected in Treutlen and adjoining counties, which he sold to Rick Towns of Wheeler County.
They will continue checking around about the pictured axe, but at this point it seems to be a splitting axe with hole for a handle. It is very rusty, but there is enough metal on the steel to prove it is brass clad, much thicker than brass plating. Look carefully inside the hole.
The site where the axe was found is about a mile north of Lothair off GA 199 along Red Bluff Creek.
If anyone has information about this type of artifact, please check with Harold and Tommy or leave a comment.

Recognize this barn?



Evergreen trees, rolls of hay, pecan trees, pretty brown horse, old shed, rusty tin roof, farm gate and equipment, even green cactus at the bottom right.  It's on Little Creek Road.
The bright, low sun of winter is lousy for people portraits, but can enhance outdoor scenes like this. Sharp dark shadows, texture of the hay. Just another part of beautiful Treutlen County, Georgia. All of you blog readers out in cyberspace, be envious.

No More News on Missing Girl

Hoax Slayer made the following comment about Ashley Lewis. No detailed information:


True, but outdated. Ashley Lewis did go missing from Kannapolis on New Year's Eve 2009. However, reports indicate that Ashley has now been located safe and well. It should be noted that two other teenagers that are also named Ashley Lewis have been reported missing in other parts of the United States and this is causing some confusion.

More about Ashley Lewis

Snopes has more about the North Carolina missing girl. Although it has been marked outdated, there has been a unsubstantiated  comment that she had been found.

On a Clear Day





On a clear day in Treutlen County airplanes and vapor trails can be seen, sometimes five at a time. The pecans have been hanging around later than usual, and they should hit the ground when the predicted 20s arrive.
