The Chatter Box

By Deborah Bennett

This week is the time to get rid of your scrap tires at no cost!

City and county residents who have scrap tires lying around their properties may drop them off at the Jenkins County Landfill, 3199 Paramore Hill Road, at no charge. Those dropping off tires must have a valid driver’s license with a Jenkins County address and Jenkins County vehicle registration.

I often see old tires lying beside the highways and on properties. This is the perfect time to dispose of them.

Graduation is just around the corner and The Millen News is beginning to work on its graduation issue, which will be May 24th.

Put your graduate in the spotlight with a special message and photo for just $39. The deadline is noon Friday, May 5th. You may e-mail your photo and message, along with payment information, to: themillennews@gmail.com or drop it by the office at 856 Cotton Avenue, 8 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

Payment must be made at the time the order is placed.

Businesses may also purchase congratulatory ads. Just call the office to place your order.

Happy birthday this week to: John Herrington III, Jonathan Hall, Brandon Hooks, Benny Hall, Rosalie Dwelle, Debra Perryman, Barbara Burke, Joyce Hodges-Hite, and Joe Law.
