Boutiques boost business on Ingleside Avenue

The doors are opening to new shops on Ingleside Avenue. In the past year, three new boutique-style shops have popped up.

"This is going to be the boutique alley around Macon," says Magnolia Lace Co-Owner, Cindy McMichael. "It's going to be fun to shop here, where you can get clothes, home goods, antiques, all kinds of things."

On Saturday, Magnolia Lace opened its doors for business.

It is joining neighboring boutique, Jack and Darcy, which opened less than a year ago.

"There's a lot of potential," says styling manager, Ruth Watts. "Two new boutiques are opening next door, so we are very excited about the traffic that will bring in. There's art. There's food. There's hair. There's everything here."

Long- time shop owners along the street hope this will draw in new customers to the area.

Mandatory spay and neuter law in Macon

Monday marks the 14th day of Bibb County's mandatory spay and neuter law.

Sarah Tenon, the director of the Macon-Bibb Animal Shelter says in the past two weeks they have yet to give out any citations to violators of the new law, but she says they will.

Starting July 1, 2014, dogs and cats over the age of six months in Bibb County are required to be spayed or neutered.

Tenon explains, "If we got a call for a dog roaming at-large, we'll go out. If we can locate the owner, we would then talk with the owner, address the roaming at large issue, as well as inform them of the new law."

At that time, Tenon says they would issue the owners with a citation, and give them 60 days to spay or neuter their animal. If they do not comply, they face a fine of up to $500.

Tenon says they are not going door-to-door to enforce this, but she says something needed to happen.

Walmart donates 100 bookbags to Bibb Board of Education

The Walmart on Harrison Road and Gray Highway in Macon are making sure that some students will be ready to go back to school.

The two stores collaborated with the Title I program of Bibb Board of Education to donate 100 bookbags.

The bags were stuffed by the managers themselves who then made sure that everything, including the bag itself, was up to code.

Rulers, markers, notebooks, and paper were some of the items included inside the bags.

All the items chosen are on all of the supply lists for the Bibb County Schools.

"Just to be able to say to our parents, 'Here's another way for us to help you with your kids getting ready to go back to school,' but it's just a wonderful thing for us to say, 'Let us help you and let us make a difference in this community,' and that's what its all about," says Title 1 Education Specialist Joanna Gittens-Summerow.
