Back in a moment Break: DRAKE – ESOG – HELLER LAW STORY 4: Calhoun National Guard Unit Activated for Deployment Soldiers from the Calhoun-based 1st Squadron, 108th Cavalry Regiment, part of the Georgia Army National Guard, are gearing up for an overseas deployment to Kosovo. Around 200 soldiers from the 108th have been activated from the unit's armories in Calhoun, Dalton, Cedartown, and Canton. The soldiers will undergo pre-deployment training at Fort Stewart, Texas, and Germany before arriving in Kosovo as part of the NATO Kosovo Force (KFOR) for a peacekeeping mission. The deployment is expected to last around eight months. A sendoff ceremony will be held on January 2, 2024, at the Calhoun campus of Georgia Northwestern Technical College. STORY 5: Apartment Complex Under Construction in Canton Madison Communities has begun construction on Madison Canton, a 252-unit apartment complex located near downtown Canton, Georgia. Situated at the intersection of Marietta Road and Jackie Moore Lane, the complex will feature a variety of amenities, including a clubhouse, fitness center, cyber lounge, and workspaces. Outdoor amenities include a pool and deck with grilling stations, a dog park, a dog wash, and pickleball courts.

Commercial: CHEROKEE CHAMBER - INGLES 9 STORY 6: Republican-Drawn Legislative Maps Come Under Fire The Georgia General Assembly's special redistricting session commenced with Democrats and watchdog groups criticizing Republican-backed proposed maps for the state House and Senate, claiming they are unfair to Black voters. Both maps aim to comply with a federal court ruling that declared previous maps violated the Voting Rights Act. Democrats argue that the proposed maps make unnecessary changes beyond the court order, while they have released an alternative map focusing on the specific districts identified in the court ruling. Critics also highlight extensive redrawing and incumbent pairings in the Republican-backed maps for partisan reasons. STORY 7: State Senate study committee recommends repealing CON law A committee in Georgia, comprising lawmakers, healthcare executives, and an insurance industry representative, has recommended repealing the state law governing hospital construction and medical services. The Senate Study Committee on Certificate of Need (CON) Reform believes that the decades-old CON law is hindering advances in healthcare delivery, especially in rural Georgia. The CON law, enacted in 1979 to reduce healthcare costs by avoiding duplication, requires applicants to demonstrate the need for a new medical facility or service in a community. The committee's recommendation for repeal or reform will now be considered by the full Senate during the 2024 legislative session. We'll have closing comments after this.

The second installment for 2023 property taxes was due earlier this month. If you're a homeowner, either you sent a check to your county treasurer or your bank paid the tax out of escrow. Homeowner tax bills were especially painful in 2023. Statewide average homestead tax bills went up 17 percent over 2022, a much bigger increase than in years past. So we wonder, now that 2023 is done, what will happen to tax bills in 2024?

What the ICA has been able to accomplish over the past 20+ years is exemplary. Whether it's stewarding or purchasing climbing areas or establishing trustworthy relationships with state and federal land managers, we should be proud to have the ICA as a part of our community. Illinois may not be the first place that comes to mind when thinking of climbing in the U.S., but Andrew convinces us otherwise.

In 1931, San Diego's idyllic image as a beach town with peaceful suburbs concealed a harrowing reality: a series of unsolved crimes targeting women, fueling fear and vulnerability. MONSTERS ON THE LOOSE tells the tragic and true stories of three women murdered early that year: Virginia Brooks, Louise Teuber, and Hazel Bradshaw.Local law enforcement, out-of-town criminologists, and investigators from what would become the FBI pursued hundreds of leads. Statewide, newspapers covered every angle and clue and sometimes played a role in the investigations. Yet, the killer(s) were never identified and brought to justice.In MONSTERS ON THE LOOSE, award-winning author and historian Richard L. Carrico pieces fragments of evidence together for three cold cases, shedding light on a dark chapter in San Diego's history.More than ninety years after the murders, Carrico emerges as an advocate for the victims, meticulously reconstructing their stories. Immersed in dusty files, long-forgotten oral histories, and newly discovered investigation records, his primary objective remains unwavering: to seek justice for the three young women. With no witnesses to the crimes, the significance of circumstantial evidence and speculation, both then and now, became paramount. And he may have even solved one of the murders.
