Warner Robins City Councilman John Williams is in good spirits today after being hospitalized at Macon Coliseum. Williams tells 41 NBC, his heart stopped twice yesterday morning, and his defibrillator activated both times.

If you're driving in Jones County without up-to-date tags and registration, you won't be driving for long. The Jones County Sheriff's Office just bought a new mobile tag reader that scans hundreds of tags a minute.
Managing traffic in Jones County is easier these days for Deputy Angel Feliciano. Feliciano operates the newly purchased Mobile Plate Hunter 900. A supped up cop car uses three high speed cameras and a computer database to pinpoint drivers who hit the roads illegally.
"This thing reads well over 1500 to 1800 tags per minute," said Feliciano.
It was a tough Christmas for the family of a missing Twiggs County man. 47-year-old Troy Burnett was last seen a week ago on December 19th. After a search by the Twiggs County Sheriff's department found no trace Burnett, the family and authorities turn to the public for help.
"Well we haven't had a Christmas," said Ida McClinton, Troy Burnett's mother.
Burnett was last seen in Twiggs County by a neighbor on Highway 80. Twiggs County Sheriff's Deputies and family members continue to search for Burnett near his home on Galamore Mill Road. The family says Burnett takes walks almost everyday.
