Brooke Mullis Named Dublin Visitors Center Manager

A graduate of West Laurens High School, Mullis attends Middle Georgia State College and is majoring in business. Formerly, Mullis served as program assistant to Tara Bradshaw, Director of Main Street Dublin and Dublin Downtown Development Authority, where she fell in love with Dublin’s downtown. “As Visitors Center Manager, I can put my love for downtown to work and drive people to attractions throughout Laurens County.

NORAD: No fighter escorts for Santa this year

NORAD: No fighter escorts for Santa this year

As it has every year since 1955, the North American Aerospace Defense Command will be tracking Santa on his whirlwind journey to deliver presents to all the good little boys and girls around the world.

But he won't be escorted by armed fighter jets.

When NORAD recently launched its yearly online Santa tracker, the site featured a video showing the jolly old elf being escorted by U.S. fighter jets "bristling with missiles," as the Boston Globe put it.

That caused a minor earthquake in the Twitterverse about why Santa would need an armed escort. The answer: Russia.

But a NORAD spokesman confirmed to Military Times that the "missiles" are actually fuel tanks.

Big Rig Bees Find New Home

The second Wendy Adams heard the buzz about a bee-carrying big rig overturning, she flew into action.

So she hopped in her honey bee-mobile and soared to the scene of the accident, but saving the insects wasn't the hardest part.

Her next step? Helping the orphaned bees find foster homes. 

That's when new beekeeper Robert Young stepped in. 

This is his first time beekeeping, but says he couldn't pass up the chance to help. 

The beekeepers have been relying on their own resources but really could use a few of these key items including hay, sugar, and extra queens.
