Halo Desserts First Week Incredible!

Halo Desserts First Week Incredible!

Halo Desserts’ first full week in the bookstore has been incredible! I love when you dream about something for several years, then when it comes together and gets launched it’s better than you even dreamed! 

The grand opening last Saturday of Halo Desserts was a great success, but the end of their first full week was excellent. A sellout almost every day!! THANKS TO EVERYONE!

The June unemployment rate in Jones County is 9.5 percent according to a Georgia Deparment of Labor news release.

 

The lowest area rate, at 8.0 percent, was recorded in Warner Robins, while the highest, at 12.8 percent, was in the Heart of Georgia-Altamaha area near Dublin.

June marked the 47th consecutive month Georgia has exceeded the national unemployment rate, which is currently 9.2 percent, up from 9.1 percent in May.
