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.

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.

Chase Colina's 116 receiving yards, including a 56-yard touchdown reception, were instrumental in the victory.

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 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. Both projects aim to enhance campus facilities and better serve the growing university community.

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. Legal challenges to Georgia's congressional map are ongoing, which could potentially impact the competitiveness of the district for Democrats like Richardson. …Back with final thoughts after Break: Henssler 60 Signoff: Thanks again for hanging out with us on today's Marietta Daily Journal podcast.

The county's attempt to have the case dismissed was denied. However, Judge Ann Harris ruled that Commissioner Keli Gambrill, the original plaintiff, lacks standing to sue. Two Cobb residents, Catherine and David Floam, were added as plaintiffs and were found to have standing. The case will continue with the Floams as the only plaintiffs. The lawsuit centers on the county's use of home rule powers to redraw district lines, affecting voters' representation.

Churella discussed how many railroad executives resisted the switch to diesel engines, leading to their decline in the industry. The transition was driven by companies like the Electro-Motive Division of General Motors and General Electric, which recognized the value of diesel technology. Churella's lecture highlighted the importance of managerial culture in driving technological change. Attendees found the lecture accessible and informative about the progression of rail technology. Story 6: commish Republican Cobb Commissioner Keli Gambrill's lawsuit to uphold the Cobb redistricting map has taken a new turn.

Gambrill's attorney, Ray Smith III, has been indicted in a separate legal matter involving Donald Trump and others attempting to overturn the 2020 presidential election results in Georgia. Despite this, Gambrill continues to have Smith represent her in the redistricting battle. Gambrill asserts that the Democratic majority on the Cobb Board of Commissioners acted on the advice of county attorneys in enacting home rule powers to redraw the maps. The legal case is ongoing, and there are differing opinions about Smith's involvement and its impact on the lawsuit.

The academy's full staffing led to higher costs, straining the county's budget. To address this, the academy plans to seek increased revenue sources, including higher member fees from partner agencies. The board approved the funding 4-1 from the general fund, with a reimbursement requirement. Commissioner Keli Gambrill expressed concerns over the timing and suggested prior awareness from the sheriff's office.

Courtney Knight, a board member and leader of the affordable housing task force "Advance Cobb," discussed the issue.

Commercial : ESOG STORY 1 hot Cobb County may face a heat advisory as temperatures are expected to rise into the upper 90s. Metro Atlanta is anticipating its highest temperatures of the year starting today, with the heat potentially lasting through the weekend and into early next week. The National Weather Service is monitoring the situation to determine if a heat advisory will be issued for Cobb County and other metro areas. The heat index, which combines relative humidity with air temperature to represent how it feels to the human body, is a major concern. The NWS will issue a heat advisory if the heat indices exceed 105 degrees. Rainfall could provide some relief, but if not, there will be uncomfortable heat indices, posing a risk to those outdoors or without access to air conditioning. Residents are advised to stay hydrated, take breaks in the shade or indoors, wear light clothing, and check vehicles for children or pets left inside.

Read more about this at mdjonline.com Story 2: digest The total taxable value of residential, commercial, and personal property in Cobb County, experienced a significant increase of 15.7% last year, driven by rising home prices. This growth marks the steepest increase in 21 years and follows a 12.3% increase the previous year. The higher property values mean increased tax revenue for Cobb County, its cities, school districts, and community improvement districts. While rising assessments may lead to higher tax bills for property owners, many jurisdictions in Cobb do not plan to raise their millage rates. However, exceptions include the city of Mableton, Cobb County School District, and the city of Marietta, which have implemented slight increases or reductions in millage rates. Homeowners can appeal their assessments if they believe there was an error, and this year has seen a record number of appeals filed. Despite high home values and a decrease in the number of houses being sold, the demand for homes remains strong, while inventory remains low in the Atlanta market.
