Page 2A May ,2019 R pOrter By Diane Glidewell news@mymcr.net Secure Self Storage at 51 West Adams Street in Forsyth offers over 20,000 square feet of climate- controlled storage to safely protect your belongings no matter what the weather is outside. Owned and managed by Monroe County residents Wes Cone and Todd Rivers, Secure Self Storage has been open for a year and has expanded to meet the needs of even more customers. Units are available from 5' x 5' to 10' x 25' (250 square feet) in the all indoor facility. It has a massive heating and air system and six de- humidifiers that keep the building and anything in it safe from the effects of heat and cold and from mold, mildew and insect pests. Secure Self Storage is the first climate-controlled storage facil- ity in Monroe County. Seeing the need for climate-controlled storage, Todd and Wes researched it, and when they had the opportunity to buy the former warehouse on West Adams decided it was the right place and the right time to meet that need. "There is a lot of positive growth here and we knew it was needed ' said Wes. "Both ofus live here, are raising families here, and could add the small town touch:' There is a full-time employee available to help if needed, but a customer can do everything online if he or she prefers. Secure Self Stor- age is fully automated, modem and streamlined. Renting, reserving, auto-pay can all be done online at sssforsyth.com. Wes and Todd love to show off the changes they have made to the facility that was first built in 1951 as a plant to make Carters baby clothes. It was bought by Trio manufacturing in the late 1960's and later became an event center known as Gallery 51, where many attended wedding receptions, par- ties, art shows and even the Forsyth Mayor's Ball. "It's an amazing feeling to see people walk inside and their jaws drop because of how good it looks7 said Wes. They gutted the building, dealed it out, replaced electrical work and put in a new heating and air system. The building has keypad entry, motion sensor lighting and a 20-unit era security system. Wes and Todd monitor the systems through their telephones. There are dollies and hand trucks available for customers to use, and the build- ing has all new lighting outside. There are new sidewalks and new unloading lanes for customers. The first phase of Secure Self Storage opened a year ago, and Phase 2 has been open about three months. "People have been so welcoming; they've taken care of us" said Wes. "The response has been over- whelming? He said several businesses are us- ing Secure Self Storage as the place to keep inventory on a permanent basis. Wes said their prices are at- tractive because they want people to see how convenient, efficient and safe the facility is, "They're go- ing to love us!"

Anita Martin.sued the city in Monroe County Superior Court on May 2 claim- ing she fell and suffered injuries on June 5, 2017 and claiming the city failed to warn pedestrians about a slope in the sidewalk along Lee Street in the area around Harbin Repmrs. Martin said she had gone to the CoTique Boutique on the courthouse square on June 5, 2017 and bought a T shirt. After she left, she fell on the sidewalk when she encountered an ufi- expected drop in elevation, said the law- suit. Martin said the sidewalk appears to be all one level because the concrete colors are the same, when in fact there's a one-foot drop. She said the drop is also partly obscured by a guardrail, calling it a confusing and unexpected obstacle. Martin said the city has no signs warn- ing pedestrians about the change in elevation. She also said that the city knew others had fallen there too and did nothing to fix the problem. Martin said she has suffered significant physical, mental and emotional pain and suffering as a result of her injuries, and that her husband John has suffered loss of companionship as well. Martin is represented by Macon attor- ney Katherine McArthur. Her husband John Martin, a former candidate for county commissioner, is also a plaintiff in the lawsuit. 2019 Bariatric & Metabolic Institute, Navicent Health Physician Group : 5:30PM, Bariatric & Metaboli~ Institute, Navicent Health Physician Group [ 777 Hemlock Street, Macon For information: (478) 633-5200 ALS Support Group 10AM, Rehabilitation Hospital, Navicent Health 3351 Northside Drive, Macon For information: (404) 636-9909 Breasffeeding Class 1PM, FREE Class To ?egister: (478) 633-BABY or NavicentHealth.org/pages/beginnings-classes Art'lherapy for Cancer Patients and Survivors 1PM, Peyton Anderson Cancer Center, Navicent Health ] 800 First Street, Macon For information: (478) 633-8537 Stroke Support Group 3:30PM, Rehabilitation Hospital, Navicent Health 3351 Northside Drive, Macon For information: (478) 201-6500 Traumatic Brain Injury Support Group 6:30PM, Rehabilitation Hospital, Navicent Health 3351 Northside Drive, Macon For information: (478) 201-6500 "lhe Pink AUiance breast cancer survivor group 12PM, Peyton Anderson Cancer Center, Navicent Health [ 800 First Street, Macon For information & reservations: (478) 633-8537 Parkinson's Support Group 2PM, Rehabilitation Hospital, Navicent Health 3351 Northside Drive, Macon For information: (478) 201-6500 Chemotherapy Orientation Class 10AM, Peyton Anderson Cancer Center, Navicent Health I 800 First Street, Macon For reservations: (478) 633-8537 Code Med Health Fair 10AM-2PM, Anderson Conference Eis~flaower Parkway, Macon Visit: NavicentHealth.org Center, 5171 Cancer WellFit 9AM, Wellness Center, Navicent Health For information: NavicentHealth.org/service-center/ wellness-center The Close Knit Bunch 2PM, Golden Opportunities at Wellness Center, Navicent Health For information: (478) 757-7817 Power Over Parkinson s 9:30AM, Wellness Center, Navicent Health For information: NavicentHealth.org/service-center/ wellness-center uloy l day Free Blood Pressure Screenings 9AM-12PM, Health Resource Center Library, Navicent Health I 877 Hemlock Street, Macon "Ihe Card Sharks 1PM, Golden Opportunities at Wellness Center, Navicent Health For information: (478) 757-7817 SmartStart Cardiovascular Risk Reduction Exercise and Education Program Reduce your risk for heart disease and stroke For information: (478) 633-9090 Wings Of Hope (G Hf[ supaOort for children and families) & Goodbye Too Soon (Grief support for mothers ~ho have lost cffiMren) WiU meet at q-he Medical Center, Navicent Health by appointment , For appointment with a transitions counselor" (478) 621-8328 Rock Steady Boxing for those with Par]tinson's Disease Mondays &Wednesdays: 10:30AM; Mordays & Tuesdays: 6:30PM, Macon United Boxing and Conditioning Club I 3301 RoffAvenue~Macon Must have a physician's clearance and physical therapist evaluation before beginning For information: NavicentMaconBibb@RSBAffiliate.com
