Fried Moon-Pies, Fritters and More Out in the boonies of Montrose

Fried Moon-Pies, Fritters and More Out in the boonies of Montrose

It is out in the boonies, and unless you know you are going there, you might miss it - well, maybe not - it is the only Southern-style home with an old stage coach house and Gypsy Vanner horses for miles around.

They'll make you anything you want - steaks, fish, shrimp, a Fried Goober - yes, a Fried Goober (a double decker peanut butter and jelly sandwich), Fried Moon-Pies, and they will serve them with an R.C. and of course, an endless supply of fritters.

Fritters at Saje Plantation in Montrose, Georgia is the diamond in the rough - a treasure in the middle of farmland and acres of field on the road between Cochran and Dublin, and it would be well worth the trip for a visit or two.

County January Unemployment Rate

County January Unemployment Rate

Bleckley County's unemployment rate for January was 12.5 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.

Dodge County's unemployment rate in January was 11.2 percent.

Pulaski County's was 9.6 percent.

That's compared to metro Macon's 9.9 percent unemployment rate for January.

But that's still less than a year ago, at 10.5 percent.

Sam Hall with the Georgia Department of Labor says the increases should not be cause for concern because seasonal workers leaving temporary holiday jobs play a major factor in the variation.
