Sorry, I hope I'm not breaking ATS rules, I hit a draft button and thought I could continue later anyway....
the other strange things about these chicken houses were the fans ran continuously at night.
I'll get back to the chicken houses and answer your question about the neighbors.
A few months after I moved into 584, I noticed a neighbor had a for-sale sign on their property. Their house was the 1st on the left right as you
enter Harper Valley. The house never sold as long as I lived there.
The house to the right of their property belonged to the Harpers. A very old lady (80s) and a mongaloid (sp?) adult. Initially I saw a great deal of
both and later rarely. The Harper property was in trust and could not be sold at that time.
On up the road a piece was another Harper who had lived on the estate property for 21 years. One day in 2005 he up'd and moved w/out so much as a
goodby! The property is still abandoned.
Up the road on the left above the chicken houses down in a holler were the Omanions and in 2004 the house was about to go into foreclosure.
Unbelievable. They just about went crazy trying to figure out how this could have happened. They also owned a strip of land separate from their home
that adjoined the ex-coaches who wanted to buy that strip. They would not sell to the ex-coach. The Omanions' property went on the auction block in
2006 and they had to move.
A hop, skip & a jump on the right of the Omanions was Charles & Mallie Addicks. I rented from Mallie Addicks. Charlie contracted two forms of cancer
died w/in a years time, Mallie remarried, moved and rarely returns.
Mallie & I had a good landlord/tenant relationship. I did all repairs for reduced rent and first option to purchase, so I thought. I saw Mallie in
July of 2005 when she delivered paint for 584 and in August 2005 (1 month) I receive a telephone call to vacate the premises in 29 days. Yea, right!
I was told Larry Dyalremple (ex-coaches caretaker) had 1st option to buy.
584 remains vacant and has never sold. I checked the property tax records a few months ago.
Harper Valley is a county road that lead to a lake. At the entrance of the ex-coaches house is a hugh iron gate and electronic security equip.
Harper Valley is a very, very well maintained county road that runs approximately 3/4 mile to the iron gate. I was amazed at the number of times that
road was scraped. I attributed it to the ex-coach and his $$$$. but could not figure out why the iron gate against ordinances or laws that forbid a
county road from being blocked. Also, since we were at the "end of the loop" anytime the power went off it was back on in short order and all power
lines were continuously cleared. Amazing since it usually takes forever in such a remote, rural area. Just lucky living next to the ex-coach.
One of the most bizzaar events took place about a year after I moved and during the wee hours of the morning all the horses, dogs and whatever else
went crazy! It disturbed me greatly!
Right before the above event Ellijay lost power. Georgia Power lost about 3,000 residence and a greater number of Amicalola Electric Membership Corp
membership lost power. This is when it all started.
One evening at exactly 11PM I lay in bed when a great noise could be heard and I looked out my bedroom window facing Harper Valley and saw a cargo
plane flying just above the tree tops but it had no running lights! My whole body felt like a million pin needles were sticking into my flesh. Mark
(my husband) & I came out of the bed and onto the floor! Shortly after the sound disappeared we heard a man's voice talking (you can hear everything
on top a ridge) but only one man's voice; a clicking noise to the left then a clicking noise to the right covering a distance of about 500 feet
between the 2.
