Parent Workshop Hopes To Bring Education Home

A small but interested group of people attended a parent workshop in Baldwin County Thursday night to learn how to turn the page in their child's education and read into what their kids are learning in the classroom.

"Just to be aware of what their students are going through. Their kids spend a lot of time in school," says parent Hope Beasley.

Beasley says even with two daughters in elementary school, she fit the parent workshop into her schedule, because she wanted to learn how to be more active in their classrooms.

"It gives the kids a sense of purpose to go to school. It helps them to realize 'it's good my parents are involved,'" she says.

Former Milledgeville Mortgage Company Employees Charged

Four former employees at a Milledgeville mortgage company were accused of stealing files and giving them to a new competitor in town.

Milledgeville Police Detective Wanda Holsey says four former Northside Mortgage employees were arrested last Thursday for allegedly taking the company's files and giving them to a new mortgage company in town.

She said Amy Budrys, Anthony Greer, and Jennifer F. McKenzie were all charged with theft by taking and computer trespassing. Deborah A. King has been charged with party to a crime of computer trespassing, she said.

According to Holsey, the four employees have been converting customers' files from July to the end of August.

Holsey says the owner of Northside Mortgage reported that on Sept. 1 the four employees quit with no notice, and moved to Dewitt Mortgage Company.
