Lyerly Officials Ask For Money
Monday, 20 October 2014 22:32
Lyerly Town Council voted unanimously on Tuesday to apply for a $25,000 Tillotson Menlo Charitable Foundation Grant to help pay for renovations to the building recently donated to the town. 
The family of the late Hill Caldwell recently turned over the downtown property which once housed the Post Office and later the Town Hall. The building will be remodeled and used as a community center. The Town is now trying to acquire an adjacent piece of property to use for parking.
Lyerly received a $25,000 Tillotson grant last year and used it to help pay for sidewalk repairs.
The Tillotson Menlo Charitable Foundation is a charitable organization which helps fund projects in small communities. It was founded by glove manufacturing pioneer Neil Tillotson and his wife Louise. The foundation has contributed to numerous organizations in the county.

Wednesday, 15 October 2014 20:25
Chattooga County residents who have a difficult time paying for basic health care have a new option.
Primary Healthcare Centers, a longtime provider of healthcare services in Northwest Georgia, has opened a clinic in Summerville. The clinic, which is open Tuesday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., is located in the Save-A-Lot shopping center on Ga. Hwy 27 North (next to Advance Rehab.)
“We had to do some remodeling, move in new equipment and get the offices ready, but we are very happy with the office,” said Sandy Matheson, community liaison with PHC. “Our landlord, Larry Howard, has been fabulous. We are excited about the office in part because we have plenty of room to expand.”
There are six examining rooms, including one for pediatric patients.
