MDJ Script/ Top Stories for Nov 28th        Publish Date:  Nov 27th     Commercial: Henssler :15   From the Henssler Financial Studio, Welcome to the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast.  Today is Tuesday, November 28th  and Happy 64th Birthday to pitcher Dave Righetti.  ***1983 No Hitter*** I'm Dan Radcliffe and here are the stories Cobb is talking about, presented by Credit Union of Georgia.  It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas in Marietta Braves Light the Tree at The Battery Acworth Public Safety Cadets Honored for State Championship All of this and more is coming up on the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast, and if you are looking for community news, we encourage you to listen and subscribe!    BREAK: CU of GA    STORY 1: In Marietta, It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas Marietta Square in the Gem City has adorned itself with holiday lights for Marietta Winter Wonderland, featuring Christmas-themed events such as pictures with Santa, storytime, and cookie and milk sessions. Santa's Magical Moments offer children a 30-minute experience with Santa, including crafts. Pictures with Santa will be taken at the Marietta History Center, starting December 1. The Downtown Marietta Development Authority ensured all trees in Atherton Square Park are festively decorated. Glover Park hosts the Festival of Trees, where local schools decorate trees. The annual Christmas tree lighting in the Square is scheduled for November 30, featuring performances, an ugly Christmas sweater walking parade, and Santa's arrival around 5:15 p.m.   STORY 2: Braves Light the Tree at The Battery The Battery Atlanta celebrated the lighting of its 30-foot Christmas tree with two special guests, Santa Claus and Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker. The event drew around 5,000 to 6,000 people and featured live music, including Christmas tunes played by A-Town A-List. The tree is adorned with strobes and non-blinking lights, decorated in Braves and Battery colors. Snitker expressed his Christmas wish for another World Series title for the Braves, aiming for 2025 when Truist Park hosts the All-Star Game. This marks the seventh year of the Battery's Christmas tree lighting tradition.     STORY 3: Acworth Public Safety Cadets Honored For State Championship Acworth's Public Safety Cadet Program, led by Acworth Police Cpl. Eric Mistretta, recently won the state championships for public safety cadets at the Law Enforcement Explorer Association of Georgia's conference. The cadets were honored by the Acworth Board of Aldermen for their achievement. The program provides hands-on training in various scenarios such as traffic stops, burglaries, and active shooter situations, preparing the cadets for careers in law enforcement and public safety. The state championship victory broke an 11-year winning streak held by Cobb Police Department's cadets. The program aims to develop leadership skills and offers valuable social experiences for participants aged 14-20.     We have opportunities for sponsors to get great engagement on these shows. Call 770.799.6810 for more info.    We'll be right back    Break: ESOG – ELON – CHRISTMAS PIEDMONT   STORY 4: ‘Never Forgotten': Cobb Homicide Vigil Honors Victims and their Loved Ones The Cobb District Attorney's office and the Cobb Victim Witness Unit held their annual vigil for homicide victims at the Cobb Superior Courthouse, honoring over 600 victims. Families of the victims attended the event, receiving white roses and having candles lit in their loved ones' honor. The vigil, attended by law enforcement and support organizations, aimed to provide solace and community for those affected by homicides. The guest speaker, Amanda Planchard, shared her experience as the older sister of Charles "Chet" Planchard, who was murdered in 1992. The event facilitated connections and remembrance, offering support to families dealing with tragedy.   STORY 5: Kennesaw State Enrollment Surpasses 45,000 For the fifth consecutive year, Kennesaw State University's enrollment has increased, reaching 45,152 students for fall 2023. The university has witnessed continuous growth since fall 2019 when it had 37,807 students. Of the current enrollment, 5,763 students reside on KSU's Kennesaw and Marietta campuses. Kennesaw State, the third-largest university in Georgia, has experienced only one enrollment decline since fall 2014. The recent increase represents a 39% growth since 2014, with 40,395 undergraduates and 4,333 graduate students. The university attributes its appeal to diverse programs and expanded opportunities for research and experiential learning.   We'll be back in a moment  Break: DAYCO - DRAKE – INGLES 3   STORY 6: Nonprofits Highlighted With Trees at Town Center Mall Nonprofits in the Kennesaw area have adorned trees at the Town Center at Cobb mall for the second annual Festival of Trees. The event aims to raise awareness for various local nonprofit organizations by providing them with space to showcase their services. Fifteen organizations have decorated trees, each designed by their volunteers. The trees include information about the nonprofits and ways for residents to get involved. Pounce de Leon, a cat rescue organization, is one of the featured nonprofits, utilizing the opportunity to showcase its work and raise funds during the holiday season. The mall plans to make the Festival of Trees an annual tradition.   STORY 7: Black Friday Turnout Down From Years Past The traditional Black Friday shopping experience, characterized by massive crowds and early openings, is evolving. While sizable crowds were observed at Kennesaw's Town Center Mall and Cumberland Mall on the day after Thanksgiving, shoppers noted that the crowds were noticeably smaller than in previous years. Online shopping is often blamed for this shift, but Chris McCoy, senior general manager at Cumberland Mall, pointed out that Black Friday deals now extend beyond the day itself, spanning the entire week or even the entire month of November. The change has contributed to a more spread-out and less intense shopping experience, with crowds estimated at around a quarter of those seen five years ago. The impact of online shopping and extended sale periods is evident in the changing dynamics of in-person Black Friday shopping.       Break: Henssler :60  Signoff-   Thanks again for hanging out with us on today's Marietta Daily Journal podcast.

On today's special episode of The Georgia Politics Podcast, Jason Shepherd joins the show to talk about last Tuesday's election results and the passing of long time AJC conservative columnist Jim Wooten. On Tuesday, Republicans suffered a set of defeats in Kentucky, Virginia and Ohio and narrowly won the governors race in Mississippi. This, after a lackluster result in 2022 and a series of defeats in special elections and ballot referenda since then. What gives? Are there issues with the candidates? Messages? Or is there something more fundamentally flawed with the Republican platform? Kennesaw State assistant professor and former chair of the Cobb County GOP joins the show to discuss. Also, Jim Wooten, a respected journalist and military veteran, passed away on October 29th. A University of Georgia graduate, he served in the U.S. Army and had a distinguished career at The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. Beyond his career, Wooten and his wife renovated the historic home of former Georgia governor Eugene Talmadge and he remained active in GOP politics across the state.

MDJ Script/ Top Stories for Oct 6th Publish Date:  Oct 5th   Commercial: Henssler :15   From the Henssler Financial Studio, Welcome to the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast   Today is Friday, October 6th and happy 60th birthday to actress Elisabeth Shue. ***Back to the Future – I'm in the future*** I'm Dan Radcliffe and here are the stories Cobb is talking about, presented by Engineered Solutions of Georgia. Planning Commission holds Chastain Road mixed-use development until next month Harrison High teacher arrested on charges of sexual assault, soliciting sex from student Powder Springs municipal complex contract approved as construction continues All of this and more is coming up on the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast, and if you are looking for community news, we encourage you to listen and subscribe! BREAK: CU of GA STORY 1: Planning Commission holds Chastain Road mixed-use development until next month The Cobb Planning Commission has delayed a major development proposal that would bring warehouses, townhomes, age-restricted apartments, and retail space to a 57-acre site near I-575. The Chastain Meadows project by Strategic Real Estate Partners was put on hold for 30 days, with the commission wanting more time to evaluate traffic concerns and other details, as well as consider expert input on tree preservation. The proposal includes 365,000 square feet of warehouse space and 25 acres rezoned for residential use, but some residents and associations expressed concerns about the intensity of the development and potential clear-cutting of forested land. The case will be revisited at a later meeting........…….Get more stories like this from mdjonline.com     STORY 2: Harrison High teacher arrested on charges of sexual assault, soliciting sex from student A Harrison High School teacher and coach is accused of soliciting a sex act from a 16-year-old student, authorities said. Eric Taylor Butler, 28, who is listed as a social studies teacher on the school's website and as an assistant baseball coach on the Harrison High team's website, allegedly took steps toward a sexual relationship with the student, his arrest warrant states. Butler is accused of developing the relationship with the student over the phone, through text and phone calls, from June 2023 until this week, police said. Butler was arrested late Tuesday morning and booked into the Cobb Adult Detention Center, jail records show. Butler is charged with sexual assault by a teacher, principal, assistant principal or other administrator and solicitation of sodomy. He is being held in the Cobb jail on just over $55,000 bond.   STORY 3: Powder Springs municipal complex contract approved as construction continues The Powder Springs City Council has unanimously approved an amended phase-one construction contract with The Macallan Group to build a multipurpose center and a 120-space parking deck. The Marietta-based company previously renovated the historic Bodiford House into the Seven Springs Museum in 2015 and recently completed interior renovations of Acworth's City Hall. The new community space will cost $13.1 million, up from $12 million, due to increased building size and citizen-focused areas like an atrium and community room. The parking deck, not included in the project's bonds, will serve downtown visitors and Thurman Springs Park. Supply chain issues and inflation also raised costs. The complex will consolidate most city operations under one roof, while downtown property is being developed by Novare Group. Funding comes from bonds, capital funds, American Rescue Plan Act funding, and Special Purpose Local Optional Sales Tax revenues....................…..(pause)   We have opportunities for sponsors to get great engagement on these shows.

According to an arrest warrant, Betts was driving a 2001 Ford Mustang at 100 mph in a 45-mph zone on the East-West Connector near Creekside Villas Way on August 26. He allegedly failed to maintain his lane, causing the car to leave the road, collide with a tree, and eject the passenger who was declared dead at the scene. Betts faces charges of first-degree vehicular homicide, reckless driving, speeding, and failure to maintain lane. He is being held without bond.   STORY 5: Local independent filmmakers launch campaign to bring project to life Cobb-based filmmakers, Matt Kohler and Richie Watkins of Red Fist Productions, are working on "Demons Within," a live-action series that combines dark fantasy and martial arts. The story revolves around a cursed warrior trying to suppress his inner evil to save a town from a demonic cult. They launched a Kickstarter campaign to gather financial support for the project, which features unique universes, masked villains, and stylized fight scenes. The funds will help with casting and securing filming locations. Kohler and Watkins have been developing the project for four years and are excited to see it come to life with the support of backers.   We'll be back in a moment Break: DAYCO – DRAKE – POWERS   STORY 6: Chattahoochee Tech Aviation Training Academy launching three programs of study for 2024 spring semester Chattahoochee Technical College is launching three aviation programs at its Aviation Training Academy in Paulding County for the 2024 spring semester. The programs include Aircraft Structural Technology diploma, Technical Certificates of Credit in Avionics Bench Technician, and Aircraft Upholstery and Trim. These programs aim to train students for careers related to aircraft structure manufacture, avionics repair, and aircraft upholstery. The Aviation Training Academy, scheduled for completion by December 2023, will provide the necessary facilities for these programs and help prepare students for high-demand careers in aviation maintenance and repair.   STORY 7: Kennesaw State looking for a few breaks to go its way Kennesaw State's football coach, Brian Bohannon, acknowledges his team's challenges and the need for improvement as they face Tennessee State for their homecoming game. The Owls have struggled with a 1-4 record, facing issues such as missed field goals, dropped interceptions, and bad snaps during games.

MDJ  Script/ Top Stories for Sept 26th Publish Date:  Sept 25th   Commercial:  Henssler :15   From the Henssler Financial Studio, Welcome to the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast   Today is Tuesday, September 26th and happy heavenly birthday to musician George Chambers. ***CHAMBERS BROTHERS - TIME*** I'm Dan Radcliffe and here are the stories Cobb is talking about, presented by Credit Union of Georgia Developer tweaks downtown Marietta apartment building's design Cobb to consider agreements with Smyrna on red light cameras, MARTA on mobile ticketing Philadelphia woman held at Cobb jail for fatal stabbing at Marietta motel All of this and more is coming up on the Marietta Daily Journal Podcast, and if you are looking for community news, we encourage you to listen and subcribe! Commercial : CU of GA – ESOG STORY 1: Developer tweaks downtown Marietta apartment building's design   Atlanta-based developer Bridger Properties has received an extension from the Marietta Historic Board of Review to refine its proposed downtown apartment building design off Polk Street. The initial design featured an 84-foot, 135-unit complex, but the revised plan reduces the unit count to 122, with the exact height yet to be determined. The new design incorporates a stepped profile, aiming to better align with city guidelines for the downtown historic district's building heights. The developer is also considering integrating the stair tower for the pedestrian bridge over the train tracks into the building. The project has received input from citizens and city officials, focusing on materials, massing, and scale to fit seamlessly into the historic district. The building would include one- and two-bedroom apartments, ground-level retail, courtyards, a pool, and underground parking. While some residents have expressed concerns about parking and the choice of apartments over condos, the developer cites financing considerations as a significant factor in the decision..…….Get more stories like this from mdjonline.com     STORY 2: Cobb to consider agreements with Smyrna on red light cameras, MARTA on mobile ticketing   Smyrna plans to install red light cameras at intersections along the East-West Connector and Spring Road/Cumberland Boulevard, pending approval from Cobb Board of Commissioners. The intergovernmental agreement specifies Smyrna's responsibility to install, fund, and maintain these cameras at county-operated intersections. Installation, originally slated for May, is now delayed until October. The cameras will be funded through $70 fines for red light violations, with any excess funds benefiting the city. Cobb County won't provide additional funding for this project. Meanwhile, Cobb is considering an agreement with MARTA to implement a mobile ticketing system on CobbLinc buses, following MARTA's existing system on trains and buses.   STORY 3: Philadelphia woman held at Cobb jail for fatal stabbing at Marietta motel   Keiyotta India Cooper, a Philadelphia woman indicted for murder in August, has been extradited to Cobb County, Georgia, where she is accused of fatally stabbing 37-year-old Dearish Morris at a Marietta motel in late June. The incident occurred during a visit to Morris's motel room, after which Cooper allegedly stabbed him multiple times and concealed his body when motel staff knocked on the door. She then fled the state in a vehicle borrowed from Morris. Law enforcement eventually apprehended her in Virginia. Cooper faces charges of malice murder, felony murder, aggravated assault, and theft by taking, and is held without bond at the Cobb County Adult Detention Center..............…..(pause)   We have opportunities for sponsors to get great engagement on these shows.

The church, founded in 1943 during WWII's Bell Aircraft expansion, saw its congregation grow and decline over the years. Lockheed-Georgia's arrival in 1951 brought prosperity, with the church having over 3,000 members. Economic downturns led to a decline in membership, which now stands at 375-400. The church recently embraced a focus on recreation and community outreach. Despite its smaller size, members believe in a promising future, celebrating their past while aiming to build a lasting legacy.   STORY 5: Kennesaw State falls at Tennessee Tech   Kennesaw State faced a disappointing 17-7 loss to Tennessee Tech in a football game. Tennessee Tech's crucial 83-yard drive in the third quarter, with mostly running plays, shifted the momentum in their favor. They repeated this success later in the game, securing their first victory over Kennesaw State in four attempts. This loss was a significant setback for Kennesaw State, as Tennessee Tech had been struggling in previous games, both offensively and defensively. Kennesaw State's quarterback, Jonathan Murphy, faced constant pressure, resulting in a low passing yardage of 76. The Owls' offense struggled, converting only 3 of 15 third-down attempts.   We'll be back in a moment   Break:   Ingles 8 – Dayco – Powers   STORY 6: Smyrna council moves forward on purchasing First Baptist campus   The Smyrna City Council has voted to approve an agreement for the potential purchase of approximately nine acres of downtown real estate from Smyrna First Baptist Church for around $12.1 million. While the deal is not yet final, the memorandum of understanding outlines the general terms of the agreement. The church's congregation previously voted in favor of the deal to help alleviate financial pressures and enable the construction of a new campus nearby. The city's plans for the acquired property include redevelopment for new businesses, housing, greenspace, or parking. Public input will be sought before any decisions are made. The city has various options for financing the purchase, including cash from the general fund or issuing municipal bonds. Councilwoman Susan Wilkinson opposed the deal due to concerns about certain conditions and the price.   STORY 7: Sports Update   In high school football, Buford secured a commanding 30-3 victory over Marietta, with Dylan Raiola connecting on two touchdown passes to KJ Bolden. Marietta struggled to gain momentum throughout the game. Carrollton dominated Hillgrove in a resounding 49-0 win, highlighted by JuJu Lewis' four touchdown passes. Hillgrove faced challenges on both offense and defense. Harrison orchestrated a remarkable second-half comeback, outscoring Pebblebrook 35-7 to claim a 42-17 victory.

The club continues its mission of education and conservation.   STORY 3: Thinning offensive line puts wrench into KSU's plans   Kennesaw State's football team has faced challenges with its offensive line due to injuries this season. The original plan was to redshirt many players as the team transitioned into Conference USA and the Football Bowl Subdivision. However, multiple injuries, including those to starting center James Dawson and right tackle Seaburn Hines, have forced adjustments. While Dawson and Hines may return later in the season, Coach Brian Bohannon and his staff will have to shuffle the offensive line in the meantime. They remain committed to their plan but acknowledge the need to adapt as injuries affect the lineup.

The couple watched North Cobb secure its 486th victory, defeating Northside High School in Warner Robins with a score of 35-17. Jimi, originally from Sprayberry High School, humorously mentioned that he had to go to North Cobb to find a girl who would date him.

North Cobb's head coach, Shane Queen, acknowledged the Richards before the game and had them speak to the team afterward, emphasizing the importance of playing for something bigger than oneself.

Comstock, a newcomer to distance running, aims to pursue the sport in college while emphasizing education.   Meanwhile, North Cobb's volleyball team secured a significant win against Walton, ending a six-match losing streak dating back to 2014.

The county's Board of Elections has informed the Secretary of State's Office about the issue, and an internal investigation revealed that these ballots were not opened and processed as they should have been. However, the uncounted ballots would not have affected the election results. Five of the ballots were absentee ballots from the May 2022 election, and the remaining 13 were provisional ballots from the November 2022 election. It is unclear if this discovery is connected to the delayed mailing issue from last November.   STORY 3: Kennesaw Mountain HS Observes 9/11   Kennesaw Mountain High School held a 9/11 remembrance ceremony where cadets presented and raised the American flag to half-staff. The ceremony featured a moving tribute, including the playing of taps by student Alessandro De Cesare and a somber speech by Petty Officer Justin Richard, who is part of the school's Navy Junior Reserve Officer Training Corps.

Chattanooga built a 17-0 lead by halftime, but Kennesaw State made a second-half rally. Quarterback Jonathan Murphy led the charge, completing 12 of 16 passes for 181 yards and a touchdown. Kennesaw State came close to closing the gap, but a replay review nullified a crucial pass completion, ultimately sealing their fate. Despite their fourth-quarter surge, Kennesaw State struggled to gain yards, especially in rushing, with only 102 yards on the ground. Missed opportunities plagued Kennesaw State throughout the game, including missed field goals. Artopoeus shined for Chattanooga, connecting with Sam Phillips for two touchdowns, securing their halftime lead.   STORY 5: Woodstock Beats Lassiter   Woodstock secured its first win in 2½ years by defeating Lassiter 20-10. Chase Colina's 116 receiving yards, including a 56-yard touchdown reception, were instrumental in the victory. Woodstock's defense held Lassiter to just 27 total yards in the first half and 107 for the game. Lassiter managed to cut the deficit with a late third-quarter field goal, but Woodstock responded with a 31-yard touchdown pass from Peyton Lynch to Isaiah Payton. Despite a quick touchdown from Lassiter, Woodstock's defense held strong, with three interceptions and four sacks. Ryder Romijin sealed the win with a 42-yard field goal, and Peyton Lynch played a crucial role with 141 passing yards and 41 rushing yards.

The summit will address topics like access to capital and workforce development, making it valuable for both existing business owners and aspiring entrepreneurs.

The first project involves the construction of a new 600-bed residence hall on the Kennesaw campus, costing $50 million, in response to increased enrollment and demand for on-campus housing. The Summit II residence hall will be adjacent to The Summit student housing and is expected to open in time for the fall 2026 semester.   The second project allocates $12.3 million for the renovation of KSU's Stillwell Stadium, home to the Owls' baseball team since 1984. This renovation, funded mainly by private donations, includes a complete overhaul of the stadium, with a new turf playing surface, improved lighting, safer fencing, new dugouts, media areas, concessions, and an expanded seating capacity of 1,500. The reconstruction coincides with KSU Athletics' move to Conference USA in the 2024-25 academic year.

The incumbent is Rep. Rich McCormick, a Republican. Richardson's supporters have created a campaign committee called "Jerica for Congress" and launched a campaign website and social media accounts. She has scheduled a kickoff event for September 14. Although the 6th District was previously represented by Democrat Lucy McBath, redistricting has made it a safe Republican seat.

Hernandez rear-ended another vehicle at a red light, failed to move his functional vehicle to the shoulder, and engaged in a heated altercation with the other driver until police arrived. He resisted arrest, kicked an officer in the face, and displayed signs of impairment, including incoherent speech, unsteadiness, and bloodshot eyes. Marijuana and empty alcohol bottles were found in his car, but he refused to cooperate with blood or urine tests. Hernandez also made threats during his arrest.

Col. Michael Parks, the new commander of the 94th Airlift Wing responsible for Dobbins, emphasized the importance of the base's surroundings and potential encroachment. While there are no plans to change the base's mission, continued growth and encroachment could pose challenges. The Pentagon is considering relocating part of the 81st Readiness Division to Dobbins, potentially bringing 700 more soldiers and a $78 million investment. Attendees were urged to lobby congressional representatives to avoid short-term funding via continuing resolutions. Lockheed Martin's Marietta plant, adjacent to the base, is experiencing growth and recently secured a significant aircraft order from Australia, ensuring production until 2030.         STORY 5: Cobb School District says reading bowl still on while questions remain The Cobb County School District is refuting reports that the 2024 Georgia Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl (HRRB) has been canceled due to controversies surrounding books. The district confirmed that preparations for the HRRB, open to students in grades 4-12, are underway and will commence in January. Concerns arose because some teachers and media specialists fear repercussions after recent incidents, including a teacher's termination for reading a book on gender inclusivity and the removal of two books from school libraries for containing sexually explicit content. The removals have created a climate of fear among educators who worry about job security. The district denied these allegations and requested specific details rather than media reports to address the claims.   Story 6:  Kennesaw State gets long-awaited game with Chattanooga Kennesaw State's football program will finally face off against Chattanooga, a fellow Football Championship Subdivision (FCS) program located less than 100 miles away, after previous scheduling difficulties. The matchup is significant for Kennesaw State as it transitions to the Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) and Conference USA next year.

As a result, students were kept in their 4th-period classes for an additional 15 minutes. The school's principal, Diona Brown, assured parents that the situation occurred in an isolated area of the campus, and no students were at risk during the incident. After the police department's assistance, the school resumed its normal schedule, and the principal promised to maintain open lines of communication with parents regarding any matters affecting the school and their children.     STORY 5: art The partnership between Wellstar and Augusta University Health Systems (AUHS), announced in December, officially commenced operations. This 40-year agreement will see Wellstar invest nearly $800 million over the next decade in AUHS facilities, including Augusta University Medical Center. This partnership aims to enhance healthcare across Georgia, expand telemedicine programs for rural areas, and address the state's physician and nurse shortage. Despite criticism from some state lawmakers, Wellstar defends its hospital closures, stating that they were due to aging infrastructure, low patient volumes, rising labor costs, and the loss of coronavirus relief funds, making them distinct from the new partnership with AUHS. The unified system resulting from this partnership will be called Wellstar MCG Health.       We'll be back in a moment   Break:   Powers  - Ingles 2 - JRM   Story 6: ksu   In the season opening college football game between Kennesaw State and Tusculum, Kennesaw State's quarterback, Jonathan Murphy, made an impressive play midway through the third quarter.

However, in the same game, during the fourth quarter, Kennesaw State's Deonte Morris intercepted a pass and had a clear path to the end zone. Instead of scoring an 80-yard touchdown, he dropped the ball right before crossing the goal line. His teammate, Jordan Miles, picked up the ball and was credited with the touchdown. Despite the mistake, Coach Brian Bohannon emphasized the lesson learned and the importance of hustle. Morris may be teased by his teammates but has hopefully learned from the experience. The Owls went on to win their opener 38-7   Story 7: gilbert   Nebraska tight end Arik Gilbert, a former Georgia transfer and highly-rated prospect, was arrested in Lincoln for his alleged involvement in a break-in at a vape and liquor shop.

Gilbert was arrested without incident after he crawled through a shattered glass door. He is charged with burglary, which is a felony, and faces a potential 20-year prison sentence. Gilbert appeared in court via Zoom and decided to represent himself, but the judge appointed the public defender's office to represent him.

Kenny Payne and the Louisville Cardinals were dealt a tough blow when 2023 five-star guard Trentyn Flowers announced he is leaving the program and instead will play for the Adelaide 36ers of the NBL in Australia, citing a desire to play point guard as the reason. What does this mean for a Cardinals squad that only won four games last year, but brought in multiple talented transfers and freshmen? And will this trend of players going to the NBL instead of college basketball continue? While some players are headed overseas, there are also plenty of international players coming to the states, including Luka Krajnovic who will play for Mark Few and Gonzaga next season. UCLA has five international players, Arizona has three, and Kentucky just added Zvonimir Ivisic, another sign of college basketball's changing times. We close out the show discussing Amir Abdur-Rahim, who takes over at South Florida after turning Kennesaw State from a one win team in 2019-20 to a 26 win team and a near NCAA Tournament darling last year.

She is accused of using a knife to cut the neck of Brian Byrd on July 30 at a residence on Charlotte Drive in Mableton. A responding officer found a blood trail leading to the front door and, after getting no response, entered the home and detained Alexander. Byrd had sustained a bleeding neck laceration and head wound. Alexander is facing charges of aggravated assault with intent to murder and obstruction of law enforcement. She was arrested on site and is currently held without bond in the Cobb County Adult Detention Center.**Hiram man charged with shooting at police officersJoahan Aragon, a 21-year-old Hiram man, has been charged with firing five 9mm rounds at police officers during their investigation of another incident. Armed with a Glock 17 pistol, Aragon allegedly fired at officers while also being in possession of 24 grams of marijuana with the intent to distribute. The incident took place on July 30 at 2750 S. Cobb Industrial Boulevard SE in Smyrna. Aragon struck a wall four times, and one shot was aimed at officers but missed the building. He had a black bag in his vehicle containing marijuana, a digital scale, plastic bags, and $965 in cash.

He was arrested on July 30, booked into the Cobb County Adult Detention Center, and released on a $30,000 bond.**University System of Georgia contributes more than $20 billion to economyIn fiscal year 2022, the University System of Georgia (USG) reported a total economic impact of $20.1 billion, marking an increase of $800 million or 4.14% from the previous year. This impact comprised $14.2 billion from direct spending by students, colleges, and universities, while the remaining $5.9 billion represented the multiplier effect benefiting local communities. The USG's 26 public colleges and universities significantly contribute to Georgia's economy by creating both on-campus (32%) and off-campus (68%) jobs, totaling 159,034 positions. The economic study, conducted by the University of Georgia's Terry College of Business, also revealed that USG institutions collectively generate an employment impact equivalent to the state's top five employers combined. Additionally, graduates of USG programs are projected to earn over $1.1 million more over their lifetimes for bachelor's degree holders and $1.4 million more for those with master's degrees, according to a companion study by Terry College's Selig Center for Economic Growth.Report: Cobb growing slower than metro AtlantaCobb County experienced a population increase of 6,100 residents from April of the previous year to April of the current year, according to a report by the Atlanta Regional Commission. The county's population reached 785,349 on April 1, with a growth rate of 0.78%. This growth was slower than the broader 11-county metro Atlanta region, which grew by 1.3%. Over the past year, the fastest population growth was observed in Atlanta and the region's exurban counties, particularly Cherokee (2.5%), Forsyth (2.1%), and Henry (2.1%). The report suggests that metro Atlanta's population growth is attributed to strong employment opportunities, with a 5.4% increase in the employment base since the pandemic began.Roller-coaster ‘hoteling' of Georgia foster children at record lowGeorgia's foster care system currently has only seven children "hoteling," according to the Commissioner of the Georgia Department of Human Services (DHS), Candice Broce. "Hoteling" refers to temporarily housing foster children in state offices or hotels. This number has fluctuated, with a recent high of 95 children and a record low of seven as of Tuesday night. The state legislature allocated $10 million to address this issue in the fiscal 2024 budget. A bill was also passed to establish a uniform process for placing children in the custody of the Georgia Division of Family and Children Services (DFCS). The DHS is launching a pilot program to aid families in accessing treatment and services. The reunification of children with their parents remains a primary goal for DFCS. The study committee plans to continue meetings to make recommendations for the upcoming legislative session.KSU's economic impact exceeded $2 billion last yearKennesaw State University (KSU) had a significant economic impact on Georgia, totaling over $2.03 billion in fiscal year 2022, which was a 10.3% increase from the previous year's $1.84 billion. The university, with 40,162 enrolled undergraduate and graduate students, is the third-largest in Georgia after Georgia State University and UGA. The University System of Georgia's report stated that KSU's economic contribution stemmed from various sources, including personnel and operating expenses, student spending, and community purchases driven by the institution, its employees, and students. KSU's employment of 15,917 individuals led to the creation of 2.8 additional jobs in the local community for each job on campus. KSU's president, Kathy Schwaig, highlighted the university's positive impact on the state's economy through academic programs, research, enrollment, and partnerships.Kell's Brown commits to South FloridaCJ Brown, the 6-foot-2 point guard from Kell High School, has committed to playing college basketball at the University of South Florida. Brown, a three-star recruit, announced his commitment on social media, expressing gratitude for the offers he received from various college coaches. He will join South Florida's basketball program, which is now part of the American Athletic Conference. Brown was a key player in leading Kell High School to a 28-2 record and their first state championship. He will play under the coaching of Amir Abdur-Rahim, the former Kennesaw State coach who recently took over the South Florida program. Brown's commitment comes after receiving offers from several other schools, including Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Mississippi State.Girls Cross Country Preview: Marietta in position to repeat as state champion The Marietta girls cross country team is in a strong position, having secured their third consecutive state title with five titles in six years. Their success is attributed to a close-knit and hardworking team culture. The team's dominance was evident in their recent state championship win, scoring only 33 points with top placements. The majority of their runners remain young, with only one graduate out of the seven who competed in the state championship. Marietta's youth shone through last season, with notable performances from freshmen and sophomores. Their success has made them a consistent threat in the state, despite competition from rivals like Harrison and Walton. Overall, Cobb County has a strong presence in girls cross country, with several schools making significant impacts in state championships. **Georgia ranked No. 1 in preseason coaches pollThe University of Georgia's football team, the two-time defending national champion, has secured the top spot in the 2023 preseason coaches poll. In the USA TODAY Sports AFCA Coaches Poll, Georgia received 61 out of 66 first-place votes. The Bulldogs, led by Coach Kirby Smart, will begin their season against Tennessee-Martin on September 2nd. Michigan holds the No. 2 position, its highest preseason ranking since the poll's inception in 1991.
