Countdown to Relay For Life of Paulding County: One Month to Go!

16 Apr 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page


Dozens of Paulding County schools, businesses, churches and other groups are gearing up for next month’s American Cancer Society Relay For Life event in Dallas.

In all, more than 70 teams have signed up to raise money in the fight against cancer, and so far, they’ve raised more than $55,000. That number will increase in the days leading up to and following May 16-17’s Relay event, which will take place at Veterans Park, currently under construction in front of the Watson Government Complex in Dallas. Relay For Life of Paulding County is set to be the first major event to be held at the park.

Many teams in attendance will continue their fundraising efforts during the event or commence on-site fundraising projects. The public is invited to attend and their support of their Relay teams of choice is welcomed. Team fundraisers include food and drink sales, so attendees who bring their appetites will be able to purchase snacks and even full meals. Other team fundraisers include raffles, novelty items sales and more.

Relay participants and other attendees will be able to enjoy Veterans Park’s many amenities, including an amphitheater, half-mile trail, restroom facilities and more. The park is serving as the site of Relay For Life of Paulding County after being held at White Oak Park in Dallas the previous two years. Prior to that, the event was held at Paulding County High School.

Relay For Life’s opening ceremonies will commence the evening of Friday, May 16, with the event continuing until Saturday morning, May 17. In addition to teams’ fundraising efforts, events scheduled for throughout the event include live music, a luminaria ceremony and other activities into the night and until Relay’s closing ceremonies.

More than 750 community members so far have signed up to take part in the two-day event, and throughout the entirety of Relay, there will always at least a handful of participants walking on the trail. Having at least one team member walking at all times underlines one of the main reasons why individuals and teams take part in Relay For Life: “Cancer Never Sleeps.” Members of the public who have not started or joined a Relay team are welcome to join team members in walking around the track to show their support for those in the fight against cancer.

Merchants Drive in Dallas blocked by tree

07 Apr 2014

Posted Image


April 7th, 2014 promises to be one of the wettest days of the year and ... also among the windiest.

That combination conspired to block GA Business 6 on Merchants Drive just east of the intersection to GA 61 and Dallas Post Office.

Dallas maintenance workers were observed weilding chainsaws and other heavy equipment at 10:20 a.m. in their efforts to clear the street which was totally blocked.

VIDEO REPORT ON FIRE ON TODAY'S FIRE ON MACLAND ROAD

27 Mar 2014

Posted by PUBBY in Fastread page




UPDATE:

Winds high enough to unfurl the big flag at a nearby car dealer, low humidity and the use of an outdoor burn barrel were responsible for a fire, the smoke from which could be seen as far south as Ridge Road and as far west as Dallas.

Traffic was tied up from shortly after 2 p.m. when the call was first made until after six as fire trucks blocked macland road fighting the fire with a contingent of 25 firefighters.

Destroyed in the blaze were two homes and two out buildings on this parcel of property east of GA 92 on Macland Road.

Fire Fighters poured gallons upon gallons on the blaze, eventually turning the black sooty smoke to a ligher, whiter haze that was hovering on the grounds around Hope United Methodist Church on Marietta highway. Among the sources of water used to douse the blaze was water pumped directly from the lake on the property.

The wind, which swept the fire across the property threatened to catch woods on fire and spread to the Evans Mill subdivision just north of the property but the Fire Department deployed one of the five fire companies to head off any further spread.

Fire Department spokesperson mary Ann Phipps reported there were no injuries suffered by either those fighting the blaze or the residents.

For Paulding.com, I 'm G. Patton Hughes reporting.

A fire at an unknown location northwest of Hiram is filling the sky with smoke and drawing multiple fire engines this afternoon. The fire broke out about 2:30 p.m. and the billowing black smoke can be seen from as far south as Ridge Road south of Hiram, said Curtis Carlin, who provided the video.

We are headed to the scene and hope to post more information as details become available.

As always, members are encouraged to post their observations of this horrific hot happening.
