Common Signs That
You Need AC Repair in
Walthourville, GA

Once springtime rolls around, it’s very important that you keep your eyes and ears open for any potential warning signs that your A/C unit needs to be repaired. The last thing you need is to be caught off guard when June, July, and August are in full swing. Knowledge is power, and at Liberty Heating & Airworx AC, committed to keeping our customers in the loop about potential A/C repair warning signs. That way, you can take preventative steps rather than reactive ones.

Loud-Unusual-Noises
Loud, Unusual Noises

Don’t be alarmed if your A/C unit makes low-level noises throughout the day and night – these sounds are completely normal. However, if you hear loud, unusually abrupt noises coming from your unit, it may be time to have it repaired. Buzzing or rattling noises can mean a part is loose, while grinding or whistling can signal a more serious problem. Because these types of issues won’t work themselves out on their own, a professional is needed to diagnose and correct the problem.

Strong-Odors
Strong Odors

If you notice strange, smelly odors permeating throughout your home, your first instinct may be to grab the air freshener. However, unpleasant odors can be a sign that your A/C unit needs attention. Our A/C repair techs will let you know what’s going on and how a potential issue can be remediated with a quick diagnostic test.

Refrigerant or Water Leaks
Refrigerant or Water Leaks

Your A/C unit needs refrigerant to keep your home cool and comfortable when it’s hot outside. It’s common for condensation to accumulate as your system cools your home. With that said, if you notice pooling water or an active leak coming from your A/C system, it’s time to call an A/C repair tech ASAP. Leaks can cause extensive damage to your home, and the problem needs to be addressed quickly.

Heater Repair in
Walthourville, GA

South Georgia isn’t known for its freezing temperatures, but one thing is for sure – wintertime in Walthourville can get very cold. When the temps begin to drop, your home’s furnace works properly. Modern homes have come a long way since the days of wood and coal. Your home’s heater is complicated, and when one component fails, the entire system can be affected. In situations like these, it’s important not to panic. Instead, give Liberty Heating & Airworx AC a call. Our trustworthy team of heating repair experts have the knowledge and training to repair your furnace fast, so you can get back to enjoying your home.

Common Signs That You Need Furnace Repair in Walthourville, GA

Common Signs That You Need Furnace Repair in Walthourville, GA

Today’s heating systems are complex. At Liberty Heating & Airworx AC, our heating repair technicians receive ongoing training in all aspects of heating technology. That way, their skills stay sharp, and their techniques remain up to date. However, you don’t need to be an expert to spot common signs that your heater may need to be repaired.

As colder months approach in Georgia, try to be aware of the following red flags:

Expensive Heating Bill

You’re probably used to a more expensive electricity bill when winter hits Walthourville. However, if you notice a huge price jump over last year’s bill, it could be a sign that something is wrong with your heating system. Utility companies are known for raising prices gradually, but a dramatic leap is a cause for concern.

Uneven Heating
Uneven-Heating

Does your heater seem to work perfectly in some areas of your house but not others? Are some rooms too hot while others are drafty and cold? If so, your heater may need repairing. This is a common issue in older homes and requires an expert to inspect your heater and ducts for airflow problems.

Unhealthy Air Quality
Unhealthy Air Quality

If the air in your house is hazy no matter how much you dust, your heater may be the problem. A furnace that circulates mildew, dust, and other harmful particles isn’t working correctly. This issue is particularly bad for people with asthma or respiratory illnesses. If you haven’t changed your home’s air filter recently, be sure to do so. If the problem persists, it’s time to call Liberty Heating & Airworx AC.

New AC Installation
in Walthourville, GA

You and your family depend on your home’s A/C system to keep you cool and comfortable during the hottest months of the year. Unfortunately, breakdowns happen at the worst possible times – like in the middle of July when temperatures are over 90 degrees. If you have had to repair your A/C system more and more often, investing in a new cooling system will save you time and money in the long run.

As an Authorized Carrier and Goodman dealer – two of the most recognized and respected brands in our industry – we have the highest quality units available. We handle every aspect of your new A/C installation from start to finish. That way, you can focus on living your life rather than worrying about the next time your A/C goes out.

Curious when it might be time for a new A/C system?

Keep an eye out for these warning signs:

Dusty Furniture

Dusty Furniture

If you have kept your unit well-maintained and changed your air filter regularly, you shouldn’t experience this problem. If you do, and your system is old, it can be more cost-effective to replace it and have your duct system analyzed to fix the root cause of your dust issue.

High Humidity

High Humidity

If it feels unusually sticky in your home, like you just spent a few hours outside in the summertime, there’s a good chance that something is seriously wrong with your air conditioning. Your air conditioner’s job is to pull moisture out of the air to keep your feeling cool inside. When that process fails, it can increase your risk of mold and mildew growth – and that’s just the start.

Frequent Repairs

Frequent Repairs

When your repair bills end up costing more than a down payment on a new A/C system, it might make more financial sense to invest in a more modern unit. Compare how much it costs to have our maintenance technicians perform regular service vs. the cost of a new air conditioning installation. The results may surprise you.

The Walthourville Meat Market held their inaugural Community Day this past Saturday Oct. 30. It was a fun-filled day in which many vendors came out to support not only the market but the community of Walthourville in general.

The inception for the idea came from one of the owners, Ron De Leon, who wanted to give back to the community for all the support and success that they’ve received over the last 18 years.

Many vendors were on display such as Tamara’s Tidbits, Sticker Dawg, the Classy Mobile Hookah Experience as well as the Paparazzi jewelry boutique and a children’s clothing boutique.

The meat market also provided free hamburgers and hot dogs at the event in addition to bounce houses and face painting for the kids in attendance.

DJ Julian Stokes was also there to provide music. Market owners Ron and Nicole De Leon were very grateful for the turn out and thanked the community for the overwhelming support their business has received over the years.

“We’ve been so grateful and blessed to able to be a part of Liberty County that we just want to be able to do something for the kids and for the people to show appreciation,” said Nicole De Leon. “I want to continue doing this every year.”

Mrs. De Leon wasn’t alone in her efforts as her entire staff worked extremely hard to make this a memorable event for those who came out. She also named Liberty County Sheriff William Bowman, Chief Max Brown, Police Chief Al Hagan of Walthourville and Mayor Larry Baker as strong components for getting the event started.

Mayor Baker was showing his unwavering support while at the event.

He still acknowledged the presence of COVID-19, but was delighted at the turnout and how it did not deter the community from coming out and having a good time.

“This is very exciting to see everybody come out,” said Mayor Baker.

He also shared the same sentiments in seeing this event becoming a staple in the community for years to come.

“We want to continue with events like this. We want to invite and involve citizens of Walthourville and our neighboring cities."

Mayor Baker also used the opportunity to plug an upcoming movie night on Dec. 23rd at 6 p.m.

Mrs. De Leon’s staff was equally as enthusiastic and supportive about the event and have high hopes for the future of doing things like this for the community.

“It’s just something small to put a smile on the community’s face and just give back to what they do for us,” said cashier/ floater Jerilyn DeLoach. DeLoach was also optimistic for the future of this event and saw it expanding even further in the years to come.

“We have a new restaurant opening,” she said. “We’re going to expand the meat market. The parking lot is going to be bigger. I see a bigger and better business opportunity that puts us in a position where can give more back to the community.”

In addition to all the vendors, Together We Rise was also onboard holding a local fundraiser for the community to try and get a burn clinic set up in Hinesville.

“We’re working towards physical and behavioral health for our patients,” said Kathleen Arnsdorff, a representative for Together We Rise. “It’s an outlet that they can get the treatments without having to be in an office. It is a very long process for healing and it takes years for full development.”

Ms. Arnsdorff also would like to participate in the Community Day event year after year and bring up awareness of this cause and she is truly appreciative for the support she has received for her efforts.

“We’ve had an amazing support system through the community and everyone has reached out in a miraculous manner,” she said. “Everyone from all ages, all colors, all sizes, all different disabilities have come together to help us.”

Together We Rise will also be involved in another charitable fundraiser this Saturday at Gata’s on Saturday, Nov. 6, during the Georgia-Missouri game. There will be a cornhole tournament and they will be selling raffle tickets at $5.00 apiece or five for $20.

Keep Liberty Beautiful believes in saving our environment and supporting our community. KLB is conducting a shoe drive to keep old shoes out of our landfill and help the American Cancer Society from July 18, 2021, to September 18, 2021. With the partnership with Funds2Orgs, the shoes collected will have another life and not go to the landfill. We need 2,500 gently worn, used, and new shoes collected by our next Recycle It! Fairs. On September 18, 2021, the following fairs are at the Liberty County Community Complex in Midway and Walthourville City Hall. The collected shoes will benefit the American Cancer Society and small businesses. Anyone can help by donating gently worn, used, and new shoes at the KLB office, 9397 East Oglethorpe Hwy, Midway. We have a container at the front door 24/7, and it is checked every day.

All donated shoes will then be redistributed throughout the Funds2Orgs network of micro-enterprise (small business) partners. Funds2Orgs works with micro-entrepreneurs in helping them create, maintain and grow small businesses in developing countries where economic opportunity and jobs are limited. Proceeds from the sales of the shoes collected in shoe drive fundraisers are used to feed, clothe and house their families. One budding entrepreneur in Haiti even earned enough to send her son to law school.

“We are excited about our shoe drive,” said Dr. Karen Bell, Executive Director. “We know that most people have extra shoes in their closets they can donate to us. By doing so, we raise money for the American Cancer Society and support small businesses. We have the chance to help families in developing nations who need economic opportunities. It’s a win-win for everyone.”

By donating gently worn, used, and new shoes to the Keep Liberty Beautiful / American Cancer Society, the shoes will be given a second chance and make a difference in people’s lives worldwide. We hope you are up to the challenge to help KLB. When you turn in a whole bag of shoes with 25 pairs of gently worn, used, or new shoes, by August 21, 2021, you will receive a Keep Liberty Beautiful Microfiber Towel.

We are looking for partners to be drop-off locations in the community. We can provide you with a box and will collect the shoes when the container is full. The fun part of doing a shoe drive is getting friends and family involved! Do you know someone who owns a pair of shoes that they may not need anymore? If so, ask them to donate to our shoe drive.

As a reminder, we look forward to you joining us on August 21, 2021, to conduct the Great Georgia Pollinator Census from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the KLB office. Please RSVP at https://bit.ly/pollencensus to ensure we have enough supplies and food.

If you want more information on donating your shoes or on how you can volunteer with Keep Liberty Beautiful, email klcb@libertycountyga.com or call (912) 880-4888. Also, don’t forget to follow us on Facebook @keeplibertybeautiful or website: www.keeplibertybeautiful.org.

Editor's Note: This story came in after our Jan. 15, print edition had gone to press. It will be in our Jan. 22, print edition.

Standing-room only Monday night during Walthourville’s inauguration ceremony where the new mayor vowed transparency under his administration.

At least 200 Liberty County residents and officials gathered in Pleasant Grove AME Church’s multipurpose building with dozens more overflowing out the door.

The crowd came to see the city officially bring aboard its five council members and new mayor, Larry Baker. Walthourville had not had a new mayor since 2008.

Between all the greetings and after-ceremony photos, Mayor Baker took a moment to reflect on his new role and what it meant to see so many show up.

“That told me that the people wanted change,” Baker said. “I’m excited.”

Before becoming mayor, Baker served as a councilmember.

“My first election was in 1999, so I ran on the slogan Man for the Millennium. And now we’ve changed to another decade,” Baker said.

Savannah Mayor Van Johnson was in the number Monday night and later personally congratulated the Walthourville mayor. Johnson called Baker “a good friend for years,” referencing their work together during Georgia Municipal Association events. Johnson said it was important for him to take the time to be present.

“What affects Savannah affects Walthourville and what happens in Walthourville, Liberty County affects us in Savannah,” he said.

Johnson added that he was confident in Baker’s leadership.

“He’s a fine man who really loves his city, willing to work hard. He’s shown that before when he worked on council and I think the citizens of Walthourville are blessed to have him,” Johnson said.

Public involvement was important to Mayor Baker.

“We want to make sure that every citizen is involved,” Baker said in an interview after the ceremony. “We want to invite everyone in from Day One.”

Baker’s inaugural address also emphasized transparency, accountability, and being “excellent stewards of the citizens’ dollars.” He announced plans for a new public online finance system, to be called the Walthourville Wallet. He also plans to have a new multi-purpose facility built for youth and senior citizens.

Baker told Monday’s crowd that he was eager for what’s ahead and that he was “humbled, honored, and grateful,” for the citizens’ vote of confidence.

“I stand on the shoulders of great mayors before me who have guided this great city,” Baker told Monday’s crowd.

Of those mayors included Baker’s grandfather, Rev. Henry Frasier, Sr.

“Ladies and gentlemen, I love Walthourville and I look forward to working with our esteemed council members,” he said. “I assure you, the city as a whole will be at the forefront of every decision that we make.”

Baker makes Walthourville’s fifth mayor since the city incorporated in 1974.

Monday night’s inauguration included council newcomers, Bridgette Kelly and Sarah B. Hayes. Veteran councilmembers James Hendry, Charlie L. Anderson, and Luciria Luckey Lovette were also installed.

A former fire chief from Georgia has joined the Mason Fire Department as its new fire chief – the first to take up the full-time position created during last March’s Town Meeting.

Anthony Burns was sworn in during the Mason Select Board meeting Tuesday, after having been with the department for a few months as assistant chief to outgoing Chief Flip Phalon to learn the department and about the town before officially taking on the reins.

Phalon was instrumental in installing a full-time position at the fire department after taking on the role of chief in January of 2021. He requested the town budget for a full-time position in the department – asking at the time that the full-time role be the assistant chief, with plans that he would retire at the end of the year and the assistant chief would become a full-time chief. In advocating for at least one full-time position in the department, he cited flagging numbers and a need for a dedicated employee to bolster the department and focus on recruitment and training, which has been a constant struggle for small, volunteer departments.

At the time, Phalon said he knew he would be looking outside of the community for a candidate, as no one on the volunteer department was interested in a full-time position. Burns was that outside candidate.

In 2021, the town approved a budget with $55,000 for a full-time assistant chief. Select Board Chair Pete McGinnity said the town intends to request a $65,000 salary in the fire department budget for the coming year for the chief’s salary. The board has also offered Burns the opportunity to roll the town’s emergency management director position into the fire chief’s position, at a higher rate of pay, starting this spring.

Burns was born and raised in New York, where he got his first taste of firefighting in a volunteer department in 1994.

“It’s kind of funny, my grandfather was a firefighter, my dad was a firefighter, and it was the only thing that really fit,” Burns said Tuesday. “I was in college for public justice, and spent more time at the EMS bay and fire station than at the college. It just fit.”

Seventeen years ago, he moved to Hinesville, Ga., to take a job with the Hinesville Fire Department, starting his professional firefighting career. He also served four years in the International Paper Fire Department, and as a fire science department head at Savannah Technical College in Georgia.

His most-recent role was as chief of the Walthourville Fire Department in Georgia, a town of just under 5,000 people.

“I love everything about it. Being in control of chaos, when everyone’s losing their head,” Burns said. “And being there for people is what my family has always done. It’s just something that we do.”

Burns said he recently completed a bachelor’s degree in public administration, with a focus in emergency management, and began looking for new opportunities in the fire service closer to his son and grandchildren, who live in New York. He applied for multiple positions in the Northeast, including in Mason.

“It was very similar from the department I was leaving, and there was a lot more to build here,” Burns said about why Mason was his ultimate choice. “A big factor in which one I took was that the job had to be right and the location had to be right. And Mason fit those criteria.”

Burns said he has a solid foundation in the department, which has 28 members, who are all fairly active and engaged in the service. He said he plans to provide more opportunities for training, and to hopefully grow a command structure that will lead to any of the firefighters in the service having the opportunity to replace him when he eventually retires, if they want to pursue it.

Outside of the fire service, Burns has a side business with his wife, Linda, doing engraving under the name Red Line Industries, and exploring the landscapes of New Hampshire with his wife for her photography hobby.

The Great Georgia Pollinator Census is a project that anyone can be a Citizen Scientist! On August 20th and 21st, 2021, we all can help the University of Georgia Extension protect Georgia's pollinators, one count at a time! A citizen science project is where Georgians count insects that land on a favorite pollinator plant for 15 minutes, putting these insects into categories:

Carpenter bees

Bumblebees

Honeybees

Small bees

Wasps

Flies

Butterflies/moths

Other insects

The project goals are to create or add to sustainable pollinator habitats across Georgia, increase the entomological literacy of our citizens, and generate valuable data about our pollinator populations. You can go to https://ggapc.org/ to find out more about pollinators and where to report your count. You can also come to Keep Liberty Beautiful on August 21, 2021, to conduct the Great Georgia Pollinator Census from 10:00am to 12:00pm. Please RSVP at https://bit.ly/pollencensus to ensure we have enough supplies and food.

So, you may ask yourself why we are doing the census to count pollinators. Well, pollinators really need our help. They are losing habitat worldwide due to many farming practices detrimental to pollinators life and the vast destruction of native landscapes. We are losing more pollinators every year. This isn't just a severe problem for homeless pollinators. It is a human problem, too. If we do not find ways to provide life for pollinators like butterflies, moths, bees, and beetles, which are a significant part of our ecosystem. We lose flowers, other plants, and foods that depend on pollination by these busy little creatures. The substantial decline in these pollinators will affect all of us. Here are some ways that you can help save our pollinators:

Just planting flowers and more native plants in your garden, your yard, or even in planters will help provide pollinators forage.

As you plan your gardens during the year, consider adding pollinator-friendly trees and plants to provide food and habitat for them like milkweed, goldenrod, lilacs, lavender, sage, verbena, wisteria, mint, cosmos, squash, tomatoes, pumpkins, sunflowers, oregano, rosemary, poppies, black-eyed Susans, passionflower vine, honeysuckle, Fuschia, and bush sunflower. Maple trees are also quite popular with pollinators too. Check out regional opportunities on the web for pollinators and native plants.

Try to have a succession of blooms throughout the spring and fall. The pollinators will love you for it. Also, they love to have a little plate or birdbath with pebbles and water that they can climb on and hang out on.

Also, do not worry about having that perfect, weedless green lawn. Some weeds, like dandelions and clover, are popular with our pollinator friends.

We all can help rebuild pollinators communities with simple changes to our landscapes. Check out our website: www.keeplibertybeautiful.org for more information. Then, contact us at Keep Liberty Beautiful at (912) 880-4888 or klcb@libertycountyga.com to get involved today.

A friendly reminder that our next quarterly Recycle It! Fairs are scheduled for Saturday, September 18, 2021, from 9:00am until 1:00pm at two convenient locations:

Liberty County Community Complex, 9397 East Oglethorpe in Midway

We will also host a Shred It! Day as well at the Walthourville City Hall site. You must be in line by 12:45pm. Don't forget to donate your shoes from now until September 18, 2021. We hope you plan to join us this Saturday, August 21, 2021, to conduct the Great Georgia Pollinator Census from 10:00am to 12:00pm at the KLB office. Please RSVP at https://bit.ly/pollencensus
