1,700 Mile Biking Teen to be in Pulaski Tuesday

1,700 Mile Biking Teen to be in Pulaski Tuesday

 Summer time for most 18 to 19-year-olds normally includes hanging out at the beach, the pool and doing as little to nothing as possible.

Matt Stoltz isn't doing that. Though he says he enjoys doing the “typical teenage stuff,' like listening to music, sports and playing his guitar, the 19-year-old isn't your typical teenager. He will be a sophomore when school starts in the fall at the University of Wisconsin.

Since July 1, Matt has been on a summer adventure that some dream of, while others might think a bit crazy. He is biking across country. 1,700 miles, and when we say biking, we don't mean, on a motorcycle. He is riding his bicycle – you know, the kind you pedal.

That's eight states, 2,172 kilometers, 8,896,800 feet, 24,714 football fields and 94,647 basketball courts.

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.
