Break 1 : Slappey
Residents at the Villas at Loganville, an apartment community near Grayson, experienced a series of car break-ins over the weekend. Over 20 cars had their windows smashed, and belongings were stolen from within the vehicles. The gated community lacks surveillance cameras, and residents are unsure if the culprits resided there. Stolen credit cards were allegedly used to purchase firearms, ammunition, and gift cards, causing concern among residents. Police officers from Gwinnett responded to investigate the incidents, but no official statements have been made regarding the matter.

STORY 2: peachtree
Mayor Mike Mason of Peachtree Corners, who has been the city's leader since its establishment in 2012, has announced his plans to run for re-election. He aims to continue working on public safety, quality of life enhancements, and raising property values for homeowners. The city will hold its election on November 7, with three City Council seats and the mayoral office up for voting. Mayor Mason's campaign kickoff is scheduled for June 29 at Kettlerock Brewing. He highlighted achievements such as the city marshal program, license plate reader cameras, Curiosity Lab, and the redevelopment of The Forum. His goals for the next term include walkability improvements, housing redevelopment, property improvement projects, and revitalizing Holcomb Bridge Road's business corridor.
Story 3: anderby
Anderby Brewing and Distilling, a craft brewery based in Peachtree Corners, Gwinnett County, has announced that it will permanently close on July 3. Despite being one of the early members of Gwinnett's craft brewery scene, Anderby has struggled to sustain itself financially. The owners expressed gratitude to their supporters and shared plans for events leading up to the closure, including a painting event and other customer appreciation elements. They also emphasized their appreciation for their dedicated team. Anderby's closure will leave Gwinnett County with 12 breweries, with four of them located in the Peachtree Corners and Norcross area.

STORY 4: mccormick
U.S. Representative Rich McCormick, a Republican from Georgia whose congressional district includes northwest Gwinnett, has introduced the Aviation Weather Improvement Act to encourage the National Weather Service (NWS) to utilize new data for aviation weather modeling. The bill, part of the Weather Reauthorization Package, would require the NWS to incorporate "better commercially available data" in their aviation weather models. McCormick, a former Marine aviator, emphasizes the importance of accurate weather information for flight safety and aims to provide pilots with the best information for their flight plans. The bill also seeks to ensure that the government offers real-time turbulence data to support American businesses.
Story 5: seckinger
Seckinger High School has appointed new head coaches for boys cross country, boys track and field, and boys lacrosse for the upcoming 2023-24 school year. Matt King, who previously coached at Dacula, will lead the boys cross country program, while David Seawright will head the boys track and field program. The new boys lacrosse coach is David Lake. Coach King has achieved success at Dacula, including several runner-up finishes in the region for boys cross country and a girls team that won the 2021 region title. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Seckinger and will also assist with the track and field program. The school is excited to have these experienced coaches leading and developing their new programs.
Story 6: buford
The Buford High football team, known for its success in previous seasons, is experiencing a busy spring and summer recruiting period. With a talented roster, including top recruits in Georgia and nationally, college coaches have taken notice. The team's head coach, Bryant Appling, mentioned that around 60-70 college coaches have visited so far, and the number is expected to surpass the usual average of 115-120 coaches. Handling the influx of coaches while preparing for spring practice is a challenge, but Buford's coaching committee, led by recruiting coordinator Coach Davis, manages the process. Several players from Buford have received multiple scholarship offers, and they are now preparing for on-campus visits over the summer. One notable recruit is Eddrick Houston, a five-star defensive lineman ranked among the top 15 players nationally.
Story 7: nembhard
Dacula's Dana Nembhard had an impressive track and field season as a junior, expanding her repertoire to include the triple jump and long jump alongside the high jump. She excelled in all three events, winning the county high jump championship and triple jump at the county level. In the Class 7A state championships, she emerged victorious in both the high jump and triple jump, setting personal records along the way. Nembhard's outstanding performances, which included multiple first-place finishes, earned her recognition as the Daily Post's Girls Field Performer of the Year. She described her season as one of her best, highlighting her state championships and personal record in the high jump. Nembhard found learning the triple jump challenging initially but grew more confident with each competition.
