The Hazlehurst City Council’s regularly scheduled meeting.

Former State Representative Hinson Mosley of Jesup will hold a book-signing Oct. 17 from 9 a.m. to noon at Jaycee Stadium in Jesup.
“God Knew – The Authorized Biography of the Honorable Hinson Mosley, Georgia House of Representatives” was authored by Joy Waters Fowler with Hinson and Linda Mosley. The book was released Tuesday.
Mosley never should have lived to see his first birthday. The poor, Depression-era baby learned how to fight injustice in the cotton and tobacco patches of Southeast Georgia and grew up to be a war veteran and an influential lawmaker who served under three Georgia Governors.
Eighty-eight years later, Rep. Mosley is telling his life story through his authorized biography. He leaves no secrets untold and names names — exposing pockets of corruption in politics and sharing his personal testimony of hope for those struggling with their own sense of worth.
