Starting off this week we have two 50% chance of rainy days to try and cool you off but then the heat and humidity just go up by the end of the week. Sounds like a perfect day to take an ice bath with the heat index possibly getting over 100 degrees!! It might be a good weekend to just stay inside watch a movie with lots of fans and AC running! #rainystaringoff #sunny #humid #tryingtostaycool #highheatindex #over100 #AC 


  1. Judge blocks Georgia ban on hormone replacement therapy for transgender minors 


A federal judge has granted a preliminary injunction against part of a new Georgia law that bans doctors from providing hormone therapy for transgender individuals under 18. U.S. District Court Judge Sarah Geraghty ruled in favor of several transgender children, parents, and an advocacy group challenging the ban. The injunction blocks enforcement of the ban on hormone therapy until further court orders or a trial. The judge cited the potential harm to transgender minors, including risks of depression, self-harm, and suicidal ideation, as outweighing any harm to the state from the injunction. This decision follows a trend of legal battles over similar bans in other states........

Weird news: 

  1. Georgia Man Arrested for Stealing His Neighbors’ Entire Front Porch 

A man in Georgia is facing a felony charge for allegedly stealing a complete wooden porch from his neighbor. The porch owner stated that despite the abandoned appearance of his property, the porch and other items were not available for taking. The porch, valued at $3,000, was approximately 8' by 10' and not attached to a home at the time of the theft. The accused, Robin Swanger, reportedly ignored "no trespassing" signs and took the porch. Deputies had been searching for Swanger due to suspicions of theft when they were called to his home for a domestic disturbance, resulting in additional charges of domestic violence and battery......

  1. 'T. rexes' race to photo finish at Washington state track 


More than 200 people participated in the 2023 T-Rex World Championships at Emerald Downs, a live horse racing track near Seattle, where they ran a 100-yard dash dressed in inflatable Tyrannosaurus rex costumes. The event, initially a pest control company's team-building activity, saw a close finish with three competitors crossing the finish line together. Ocean Kim from Hawaii emerged as the winner, followed by Colton Winegar of Idaho and Seth Hirschi of Renton. The T. rex-themed event celebrates the prehistoric creature's popularity fueled by Hollywood's "Jurassic Park" movies, despite the fact that the actual T. rex lived around 65-67 million years ago........

Here are some things you're talking about: Call us with your thoughts or story at 404.997-8655 

From Georgia Folk and Farm Life: 

Wade Peebles “Almost every brand and every type of store-bought pickles no longer use the word "pickle" on their label. Now, don't go check this out in your refrigerator unless your pickles were bought very recently, as this is a fairly new phenomena.  

But if you go to your local supermarket and peruse the "pickles," you will see pickles of all kinds described as "spears," "chips," "sweet," or "gherkins," or "dill," etc., but the word pickle is no longer there. Pickle companies will not give a reason for dropping the word pickle from their labels.  

That is odd, and it seems they all made the change to abandon the word, "pickle," at about the same time. If you don't believe me, head down to the Piggly Wiggly and see for yourself, and report back to us, please. I know some of you think I am pulling your leg, but this is absolutely true.” 


People commented: 


Marcus Toole “Marketing consultants have to earn their keep somehow.” 

Debbie Vaughn Cole “I guess the word pickle is no longer politically correct! I wonder who was offended by it????” 

Sue Betts Trammell “A pickle, by any other name, is still a pickle.” 

Darby Gates “When the corporations are jarring up fake ingredients, it's fitting they give them all fake names. Now--go look at your meat in the grocery store. Where does it say "beef", "chicken", "pork"…" 

Nathan Johnson “#picklesdontexist apparently, it happened in 2017”

From What's Happening in Paulding County: 

Laura Courington “Briar Patch is closed permanently! Who’s happy and who’s sad about it?” 


Pattie Battin “I've always heard mostly negative things about that place (bad food, terrible service, small dining room compared to the kitchen size), and the car line to get into the parking lot was almost always into the street when I drove by. Because of this, I could never really bring myself to go.” 


Seth King “never really like the people so i’m indifferent” 


Gaby Stoneburner “the only thing decent there is the ranch” 


Taylor Downey “They couldn't have closed because of money because cheap food and only paying 9$ an hour to employees must have been making a good profit. Ican say this is one place that never raised the pay for today's cost of living.. briar patch make 9 or 10 an hour or McDonald's 12 starting or chickfila 17 starting.. I'm surprised they even had folks willing to work with the crappy pay” 


Jana Ragsdale “It’s very sad that they closed. I will miss their specials. Prayers for their family. 

Also, very disappointed in all these rude and immature comments about a local business and family.”
