Star Bright Raises Money Recycling Shoes for Dogs in Need

Star Bright Raises Money Recycling Shoes for Dogs in Need

Star Bright Animal Rescue is not a shelter, it is a foster- based rescue. They utilize volunteers in the Georgia and New England area to foster homeless animals that would otherwise perish in Georgia Animal Control facilities. Their ability to help animals is directly related to the availability of foster space. Please support your local shelters and animal control facilities first and then let them know they can still help in your search for a new pet.

Star Bright has partnered with ShoeBox Recycling to give old shoes a new life. Have your recently gone shoe shopping? Parents, did you go back-to-school shopping? Ladies, you know you have pairs in there you will never touch, you really need to clean that closet out!

“Today brings back a lot of great memories,” said Autry. “But the most important memory is that of members working together to create a lasting organization to meet their own needs.”

Celebrating its 75th year of service in 2012 (incorporated in 1937), Flint Energies www.flintenergies.com provides energy services to residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural members in parts of 17 central Georgia counties.

Houston County Faces Wildfire Threat

Houston County Faces Wildfire Threat

Forecasters warn the threat of wildfires is high across much of Georgia, and any fires that develop will likely spread rapidly.

The National Weather Service issued a red flag warning for high fire danger from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. today.

The warning covers North and Central Georgia, where winds are expected to gust up to 25 mph.

The "red flag" warning covers all of Central Georgia's counties. The warning says people should take care with outdoor fires and contact local authorities before burning.

13WMAZ meteorologist David Ernst says a measuring station at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport has gotten 7.92 inches of rain this year. That's more than 6 inches below normal and more than 4 inches less than last year.

He said Central Georgia has seen sustained wind speeds of 10 to 15 mph.

Forecasters say humidity will be low, helping to create potentially dangerous fire conditions.
