Star Trek gets new life in Kingsland

KINGSLAND, Ga. -- In an old warehouse space a group of hardcore Star Trek fans have built an exact replica of the set used in the original TV series.

"Most people don't know we are here," said Camden County native and set designer Royal Weaver. 

"When they hear about us they're really surprised," he said.

The group, known as Farragut Films, has been building sets in Camden County for years. 

But they just moved their entire operation to Kingsland, and now have partnered with another production group to film episodes of Star Trek Continues.

Glynn County antes up reward for commissioner's killer

BRUNSWICK, Ga. -- Investigators from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Glynn County police were at the crime scene again Tuesday.

"We've had some leads, " said Chief Matt Doering. "I'm going to leave it at that." 

The body of Glynn County Commissioner Tom Sublett was found floating in the Frederica River and his vehicle inside Gascoigne Park.  The coroner said Sublett was bound and had a gunshot wound. 

"I will not comment on the evidence," Doering said. "I won't comment on anything of that nature."

Doering said Sublett's death is being treated as a homicide.

Bernice Roe, who visits the park regularly, said the killing has upset her community.

"I think it has impacted the community very deeply," Roe said. "He was a very loved man. He was a man willing to give of his time and his energy."

Glynn County commissioner's death investigated as homicide

ST. SIMONS ISLAND, Ga. -- A Glynn County community is waiting to find out what happened to a commissioner found dead Tuesday morning.

At about 10:30 p.m. Monday night, Glynn County Commissioner Tom Sublett dropped off a friend at his car in the Sterling area before going to hang out with a friend, according to Glynn County Police Chief Matt Doering.

Hours later, at about 2:30 a.m., Sublett's wife realized that he never returned home and Doering said Sublett's wife then contacted a friend Sublett had been hanging out with the night before.

That friend went looking for Sublett but was unable to locate him, and Doering said eventually Sublett's wife contacted police to report him missing.

Officers began to search for Sublett, Doering said, launching boats to search the river near St. Simon's Island.

Ken's Top 5 ways to avoid travel troubles

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- Heading into the busy travel season, many will turn to internet sites to book their travel plans. The reasons are obvious: to save money and to do it themselves. But before you hit the "book now" button, there are things to avoid so the travel plans do not become travel trouble.

1) Double check for typos. A small mistake such as misspelling your name can keep you grounded. Your ticket must match the information on your government-issued ID or your ticket will not be accepted.

2) Double check your travel dates when booking online. You may end up buying airline tickets for the wrong dates, the seats may be sold out when you try to re-book and the cost of changing could be costly.

3) Don't wait until the last minute to look for a bargain. You need to book your travel plans 14- to- 21 days ahead. Also, don't hesitate to compare fares with the different online sites.
