Cobb's police chief says the county needs more officers. And Kennesaw faces a decision on recycling   We'll have all this and more on the Marietta Daily Journal podcast!   Commercial     STORY 1:UGA   According to UGASports.com, redshirt sophomore Arik Gilbert was involved in a two-vehicle wreck Monday morning. The accident took place on campus at the intersection of Lumpkin and Baxter streets. Sources also confirmed to UGASports.com that Arik's Mercedes was totaled, but there appears to be no injury to the tight end. Arik was at practice Monday afternoon and he appeared to have no restrictions. Georgia is preparing for its season opener versus Oregon on Saturday. Arik, who returned to the team in January after sitting out last season, caught two touchdowns in the spring game and is expected to make an impact on the offense in 2022.                     STORY 2:police   What is the greatest need of the Cobb County Police Department? “More officers,” Cobb Police Chief Stuart VanHoozer said during a recent community forum. The department brought on nine new officers Thursday but is headed for a net loss of officers this year. The biggest reason, per Chief VanHoozer: retirements. According to the county, the department is currently short 85 officers, and the MDJ reported in May it employs more than 700 sworn officers. Chief VanHoozer said problems the department faced both prior to and during the pandemic are high attrition rates — losing staff to retirement or other departure reasons — and pay compression, which occurs when new hires' wages are similar to experienced employees as a result of the labor market outpacing raises over time. He thanked Lisa Cupid, chair of the Cobb Board of Commissioners, who was in attendance, and other county officials for helping to address pay for police staff. In its 2023 budget, the commission gave public safety employees a “step” increase, moving them up a pay level under the county's “step-and-grade” pay plan. This year was the second with a raise for public safety workers since the plan was instituted in 2020, and the department is working to address compression over a three-year period, according to Public Safety Director Randy Crider. Public safety employees not covered by the step-and-grade program — high-ranking police and fire officials, for example — saw an average raise of 3.3% in the 2023 budget. The department's successes did not go unmentioned during the forum. Deputy Chief Dan Ferrell, who oversees the department's special investigations and response division, touted the fact that the department has already taken more guns off of the county's streets this year than in any year prior. He also made clear one of his biggest priorities as head of special investigations.                 STORY 3:Recycle   City Council members face a decision on whether to keep curbside recycling for residents after this summer. If the service does remain, it will come at a cost. Republic Services of Georgia was the lone bidder to reply to an August request for proposals on the collection and disposal of solid waste, recyclables and yard waste. Two other companies attended a pre-bid meeting but declined to submit an offer. Republic Services, which is the existing provider in Kennesaw, would keep running the garbage routes but is proposing a price hike in recycling for items other than glass. To continue with full recycling service, Atlanta-based Republic would raise rates by $5.75 a month for every customer, regardless of participation, according to city Public Works Director Ricky Stewart. As a result, Stewart told Mayor Derek Easterling and council members at a Monday work session he recommends they approve the contract without the recycling program. Mayor Easterling said the issue facing council members at their meeting next week comes down to the contract they wish to approve. The monthly bill for customers is currently $29.15, including stormwater and streetlight service. As news has spread of a potential rate increase should recycling continue, citizens have begun reaching out to the mayor. He expects to hear more in the coming week.         STORY 4:Art  dk Gallery will kick off its September show with an opening reception on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. at 25 West Park Square in Marietta. The show will feature “All Creatures Great & Small” from artists Jeffie Brewer, Julia Burns, Lauren Chambers, Amy Cobb, Claire Dunaway, Jared Knox, Lorra Kurtz, Ellen Langford, Russell Miyaki, Lauren Pallotta Stumberg, Brenda Sulmonetti, Laura Surace, Jeff Surace, and guest artist Demond Matsuo. The opening reception will include a contest for Best Ears, Best Senior, Most Like a Painting, Best Wrinkles, Best Trick and more. Prizes will be judged and awarded by Bob Pressley Jr. of Barktopia. The evening will highlight the Humane Society of Cobb County whose mission is to promote humane welfare and responsible animal guardianship through educational community outreach, shelter and spay/neuter programs. Pets are welcome to the show, which will run from Friday to October 1. The opening recption will also coincide with Art Walk, a free self-guided walking tour of the Marietta Square's galleries, museums, cultural venues, restaurants and businesses on the first Friday of each month. During Art Walk, each participating venue hosts a local artist outside of its storefront in Marietta Square.                   Commercial Commercial             BONUS: Cupid Cobb Chairwoman Lisa Cupid is taking a national leadership position. Here is Matt Goldin with more.     STORY 5: Pageant   Young ladies from ages 3 to 24 years old are encouraged to participate in the annual beauty pageant highlighting the opening night of the North Georgia State Fair presented by Superior Plumbing on September 22. The fair, which will run for 11 days, will feature many family events, exhibits, midway rides, concerts and special attractions. North Georgia State Fair ambassadors will be named for the following titles and ages: Tiny (3-4 years old), Petite (5-7 years old), Little (8-10 years old), Junior (11-13 years old), Teen (14-16 years old) and Miss (17-24 years old). Winners will be invited to ride in area parades during the coming year. Winners will be awarded a crown, trophy, title sash, flowers and passes to the fair. The early registration fee is $65 through September 21, when there will be an optional rehearsal. Full registration of $75 will be accepted one hour prior to each pageant on September 22. The new Miss North Georgia State Fair also receives a $1,000 cash college scholarship and advances to the Georgia-South Carolina State Fairest of the Fair contest next January. The Miss first runner-up gains a $500 cash scholarship and the second runner-up wins a $250 cash scholarship.                   STORY 6:  Kell ***Audio For He's a Jolly Good Fellow  BED***  After two years without its annual honoring of retiring staff, the Cobb County School District hosted approximately 170 former staff to thank them for their years — or in most cases, decades — of service. The district annually honors its retiring staff with a luncheon at Roswell Street Baptist Church. But in 2020 and 2021, the event was canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, Superintendent Chris Ragsdale and the Cobb school board invited those retirees back to be recognized. In September, the district will hold another banquet to honor the 2022 retirees.

A method for distributing money, garnered from the sale of assets, is expected to be discussed at a court hearing on September 9th before U.S. District Court Judge Steven D. Grimberg of Atlanta, according to court filings. There's no indication how much of the money from the asset sales, which are still ongoing, will be available to share between investors or when distributions may take place, court papers show. Losses to investors to date amount to about $68.2 million, filings show. In August 2021, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission alleged that John Woods operated the Ponzi scheme for more than a decade and defrauded more than 400 investors. John, who at the time was a minority owner of the Chattanooga #Lookouts #MinorLeagueBaseball team and had overseen operations of an investment firm in the city, allegedly collected $110 million from investors with promises of 6-7% returns. But the #SEC said in court papers that investments John made in a number of companies and in real estate deals, several in Chattanooga, were worth far too little for there to be any realistic prospect of paying back investors their principal, much less the promised returns. An SEC spokesman declined to comment beyond the court filings earlier this month. John in court filings has denied the allegations by federal regulators of running the Ponzi scheme and asked for a jury trial in the civil case. He has not been charged criminally.                     STORY 2:Fire   The Marietta @Fire Department was on the scene of a fire early Sunday evening at the Cobb courthouse complex in downtown Marietta. Five Marietta firetrucks responded to the scene. #CobbCountySheriff's Office said the fire was in Building D, Magistrate Court Building. The courthouse is closed Sundays. No injuries were reported. One eyewtiness said at the onset of the fire, flames could be seen coming from the roof of the building. As of 6:30 p.m., the blaze had been contained and firefighters continued to monitor for hot spots.                     STORY 3:UNLV   Even after #UNLV football's largest margin of victory under Marcus Arroyo, the third-year head coach said he wasn't afraid to admit that there were still some areas that need improvement. But for now, he took time to enjoy the #Rebels' 52-21 season-opening win over Idaho State Saturday at Allegiant Stadium. Michigan State transfer #RickyWhite made an impact in the second quarter, starting off by hauling in a 72-yard touchdown pass from Brumfield. All 182 of his receiving yards and both touchdowns came during UNLV's 35-0 showing in the second quarter. Ricky is a former standout for #MariettaHighSchool. The Rebels have a bye next weekend and travel to face #California in #Berkeley on September 10th.       STORY 4:Princess ***Audio MDJ Cinderella*** ***Audio Cinderella Instrumental BED***  The Marietta High School Theatre hosted aspiring #princesses and their parents Saturday for a morning of dancing, singing, and fun at the Once Upon a Tea Party fundraiser show. The Marietta Performing Arts Center was packed Saturday as students dressed up as different themed princes, princesses, and sidekicks from the #Disney character world and beyond. Music from princess-themed movies played as cast members at the school danced and performed on stage, as the auditorium of the center was transformed into something befitting #WorldPrincessWeek, an annual event going on at #DisneyParks this week. The Once Upon a Tea Party event was introduced five years ago when Holly Smith, the schools' head theater director, met another teacher at a convention who shared the fundraising idea with her. Similar to a Disney character breakfast, the event starts with the student performers walking about the set up tables in the lobby, visiting with kids as their princess personas while they enjoyed cupcakes and coloring. The crowd then gathered in the auditorium where students performed different numbers from Disney shows, concluding with the kids being brought on stage to learn the waltz from different characters. The students rehearse for a period of three weeks, starting production work and auditions in July, practicing two to three times a week. The students were eager to dive into their roles, only needing a combined 12 hours of rehearsal time before they were ready. The funds raised through the event benefit the booster organization of the theater department. The booster organization helps cover the cost of department productions, costumes, props, field trips, conferences and college scholarships. Last year, the booster organization was able to provide two college scholarships to students.                 Commercial Commercial             STORY 5:International The #CobbInternationalFestival returned this weekend for the first time following a two-year hiatus due to #COVID-19. The event center of Jim R. Miller Park saw heavy foot traffic for the entirety of the six-hour event. People were eager to soak in all of the local and international music, shows and a wide variety of international cuisine offered by the many vendors surrounding the pathways. Returning for the first time since its debut in 2019, the festival shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Michael Brantley, director of Cobb County Parks and Recreation. Michael said he and his team recently noticed more people wanting to get out of the house and do things, and they knew it was time to restart the festival. Parks and Recreation coordinated the festival, according to Cobb County Commission Chairwoman #LisaCupid, and pulled staff from across different Cobb County agencies to help plan the event. Vendors paid a fee for each table set up.. Lisa Cupid spoke to the crowd early Saturday afternoon, officially kicking off the event. She invited different consulate representatives on stage to share greetings in their native languages, including members from South Korea, Ghana, Nigeria and Canada, to name a few.                   STORY 6:  Kell    #Kell is on its first winning streak of the Bobby May era. The #Longhorns jumped in front early while holding #Allatoona to just 113 yards of offense and taking advantage of four Buccaneer turnovers to win 21-9 on Friday in their home opener at #CobbEMC/#CorkyKellStadium. It allowed Kell to continue the momentum it gained from beating Cherokee Bluff to begin the season in last week's Corky Kell Classic. Allatoona threw two interceptions in the second quarter — the second coming on an attempted touchdown pass — and changed quarterbacks. However, what hurt the Buccaneers the most was a bad snap midway through the second quarter, which Kell's Nelson Woghiren scooped up and returned 59 yards for a touchdown. Allatoona's lone touchdown of the game came midway through the fourth when it recovered a high snap from Kell at the Longhorns' 1-yard line. Quarterback Saadiq Teel punched it in on the next play to cut the Kell lead to 12 points. The Buccaneers' only points of the first half came on a 47-yard field goal by Grey Kelley.   .         Commercial Commercial Thanks again for listening to today's Marietta Daily Journal podcast.
