Sheriff sale property found unavailable

NEW CASTLE — A New Castle man is facing charges for allegedly failing to have his property available for a sheriff’s sale.

The Lawrence County Sheriff’s office has charged Alvin Emery, 70, of 211 W. Moody Ave., with defrauding secured creditors.

The sheriff’s office was scheduled to sell a 52-inch television, a microwave oven and a 1994 gray Chrysler at Emery’s address on Dec. 18 last year. However, when the sheriff and his deputy went to the sale, Emery was not around, nor was his property. The sheriff’s office alleges he owes the victim $1,716.

He was issued a summons to appear in court.

Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal signed “unprecedented” legislation yesterday to expand gun rights in his state. Good idea?

Yes. Expanding the scope of where people can carry guns can help halt violent crimes and make those places safer.
No. Carrying guns into bars and schools is NEVER a good idea. I think it will lead to more violence.
Not sure, but I don’t plan to visit Georgia any time soon.
