News

One of Henry County’s commissioners has recently been undergoing some serious health issues, according to Probate Judge David Money.

Commissioner Wally Howerton, the newest commissioner for District Three, came on board in November.

Money describes him as a very conscientious guy about his job. However, a few weeks ago, he and his wife found out that he has serious health issues and has not been able to join tho other commissioners for the past three months.

“We just want to send our best wishes to him and encourage folks of faith, like many in the wiregrass, to be praying for Wally and Teresa Howerton and their two beautiful girls,” Money said. “It’s going to be a hard road for him.”

He also said he just wants the family to know that they are behind them, praying for them, and hopes he is able to join them soon.
