  1. A guest came by and asked how one might order this item. You don't have to order it, you can go by A &M and buy it. They are in the business park just west of the hospital and if you're coming from Hiram, you'll have to go up to the next intersection on 278 at Palisades SD and make a U-e to get there. Need an address? Click on A&M's 'logo-image' anchoring the post and it will take you to a profile page where their address and phone number are immediately available. Hope that helps

  3. (Paulding County, GA) On Sunday June 7, 2020 at approximately 7:29 PM a 911 call was placed to Paulding E-911 reference a person shot at 99 Summer Glen Trail Dallas, GA 30157. When Deputies arrived on the scene they located the victim, Kevin Mack Murr, (W-M, 56 YOA), deceased inside the residence. Evidence at the scene suggested that Murr died as a result of multiple gunshot wounds. Deputies were able to interview all of the parties at the residence and determined that the suspect, identified as Clark Chandler Anderson (W/M, 22 YOA), was alleged to have shot the victim. Anderson is the son of the victim’s girlfriend. Detectives learned that after some type of domestic dispute occurred between Anderson and Murr, Anderson retrieved a handgun from a room inside the residence and fired multiple rounds at Murr striking him several times. Deputies were able to arrest Anderson on the scene without incident. Anderson was subsequently charged with the following offenses: -Murder (F) -Malice Murder (F) -Aggravated Assault (F) 2 counts -Possession of a Firearm During the Commission of a Crime (F) -Hindering a 911 Call (M) Anderson is currently being held in the Paulding County Jail with no bond.
  4. Paulding County Firefighters Rescue Victims Trapped in House Fire Dallas, Georgia, June 11, 2020. At 6:25 pm on Thursday, June 11th, Paulding County Fire & Rescue was dispatched to a residential structure fire located at 195 Hillside Drive. The initial 911 call, placed by a neighbor, reported heavy black smoke coming from the residence. 2 minutes later an occupant from inside the home called advising his stove was on fire and that they were evacuating - but that two family members were trapped inside. PCFD Engine 3 arrived on the scene at 6:30pm and encountered heavy fire coming from the front and right-side of the home with extension already into the attic. Family members met Engine 3 in the front-yard and advised that a 70 year-old disabled female and a 15 year-old special-needs female were both still inside trapped in the house. Fire Department personnel immediately commenced fire suppression and search & rescue operations. Engine 3 was able to quickly locate and rescue the trapped 15 year-old using a bedroom window where Paulding County Sheriff Deputies rendered first aid. Engine 3’s crew returned inside the structure, along with Engine 8 and Heavy Squad 1 who had arrived on the scene, and were able to locate and rescue the 70 year-old out of a rear bedroom window and down a ladder. Both victims suffered smoke inhalation but no life-threatening burns or injuries. Metro EMS transported them to Wellstar Paulding Hospital in stable condition. Although still under investigation, the preliminary cause appears to have been a grease or cooking fire originating in the kitchen. No Firefighters or Sheriff’s Deputies were injured. Personnel from the American Red Cross are assisting the family with temporary housing and providing necessities as the home was significantly damaged by the fire. Additional details will be released once the investigation is completed.
  5. Murder Arrest Made in Domestic Dispute (Paulding County, GA) On December 22, 2019 at approximately 12:44 AM a 911 call was placed to Paulding E-911 reference a possible suicide attempt. Deputies along with Fire/EMS personnel responded to 83 Braemill Court Dallas, GA 30157 where they discovered Daniel Akers, (W/M, 36 YOA) deceased at the residence with a gunshot wound to the head. As Detectives began their investigation they discovered some inconsistencies with what Akers’ wife stated in relation to what the evidence indicated. The evidence lead Detectives to believe that something else had occurred at the home rather than what was originally reported as a suicide. Due to the inconsistences in this case, the death of Akers remained an open and active death investigation pending an autopsy. Akers’ body was subsequently transported to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation (GBI) Crime Lab in Atlanta for autopsy. Due to the complexity of this case combined with the COVID-19 pandemic that temporarily closed government entities down, it took much longer to get the full autopsy results back from the GBI. However, on May 29, 2020 the autopsy report came back from the GBI Medical Examiner’s Office. The report determined that the gunshot wound suffered by Akers was not self-inflicted and that the cause of death was listed as a homicide. On May 29, 2020 Detectives from the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division secured warrants and arrested Lacy Jolee Boles (W/F, 37 YOA) without incident. She was ultimately charged with the following offenses: -Malice Murder (F) -Murder (F) -Aggravated Assault (F) -False Statements (F) -Tampering With Evidence (F) Boles was granted bond by the Paulding County Superior Court on June 5, 2020 and was released from the Paulding County Jail on a $100,000 bond on June 6, 2020.
  6. Paulding County Health Department offering free drive-up COVID-19 testing DALLAS, GA: Free COVID-19 testing is available to all Georgians who request it, whether they have symptoms or not. The Paulding Health Department, 451 Jimmy Campbell Parkway, Dallas, is offering free drive-up COVID-19 testing from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Fridays, and from 9 a.m. to noon on Saturdays. Anyone wanting to be tested should go to the health department, remain in their vehicle, call 770-443-7881, and say they want to be tested for COVID-19. A nurse will come to the vehicle, obtain contact information for follow-up, and collect the specimen needed for testing. Test results will be reported just as soon as available. “We encourage everyone to get tested for COVID-19 infection to determine who is currently ill and contagious,” says Dr. Gary Voccio, health director for the Georgia Department of Public Health Northwest Health District. “This helps us identify people who might transmit the virus. We can then isolate them to prevent transmission, ensure they’re cared for, identify and interview their close contacts, and quarantine and monitor these individuals as necessary to slow the spread of the virus.” The Northwest Health District is now conducting free COVID-19 testing at health departments or other sites in Bartow, Catoosa, Chattooga, Dade, Floyd, Gordon, Haralson, Paulding, Polk, and Walker counties. For the locations of all Georgia COVID-19 testing sites, please visit https://dph.georgia.gov/locations/covid-19-testing-site.

  7. Sheriff Gary Gulledge would like to announce the partial opening of the new Paulding County Sheriff’s Office and Jail complex. The new complex which has been under construction for the past several years is officially opening tomorrow morning to the public. Although full Jail operations will begin in the coming weeks, all other law enforcement operations will be conducted out of our new facility which is located at 180 Constitution Boulevard Dallas, GA 30132 (directly behind the Paulding County Courthouse). Sheriff Gary Gulledge stated, “We fully intended to host several public tours of the new facility, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing guidelines, we were unable to. We have been working on a virtual tour video that we will share with the public in the coming weeks via our social media pages.” He further added, “I am so appreciative to our community members for their support during this massive undertaking. This facility will fill the needs of Paulding County citizens for years to come.” As many of you may remember, the approval to construct the new Sheriff’s Office and Jail facility was voted on and approved by the citizens of Paulding County in the 2016 general election. The culmination of this project will be a complete enhancement of law enforcement services for the citizens of Paulding County. On Tuesday May 19, 2020 at 8:00 AM the lobby of the new Paulding County Sheriff’s Office will be open to the public. We want to remind everyone that social distancing guidelines will be strictly enforced and we encourage everyone to wear an N95 mask if possible. We will also be limiting the amount of people in our lobby. If you can conduct your business by phone, we still encourage you to do so. Please feel free to call us at (770) 443-3010 if you have any questions. We also want to remind everyone that our old Jail facility is still housing our inmates. If you need to bond someone out of jail or add money to an inmates account, please go to 25 Industrial Way North Dallas, GA 30132 or visit our website at www.paulding.gov/sheriff for more information. If you would like to conduct a video visitation with an inmate go to www.gettingout.com . Once the new Jail opens, we will make sure the public is aware of the change of address.
  8. Happened to be checking out something entirely different on Youtube when I came across this documentary on the 1918 Flu epidemic which killed about 3 percent of those infected - sometimes within hours of contracting the disease.
  9. I think what most folks don't really grasp is that a viral epidemic is kind of like food coloring being dropped in a vat of crystal clear water. You drop it in and it starts dispersing throughout the vat but rather slowly. If the vat of water is stirred, it disperses very quickly but even if the vat is left undisturbed, eventually that food coloring will be equally dispersed throughout; given time. This is as inevitable as the sun rising or the wind blowing. There is literally nothing we can do other than keep the water as still as we can until we either find a 'cure' or a vaccine to make its dispersal meaningless. But if we stir it all up, all 100 percent of us - none of whom on day one is immune - will have any protection. If we can slow down the spread by not stirring the pot, then some of us will get sick, some that illness won't be much (we think) but for those whose health is not great - heart disease, copd, diabetes, age greater than 60, the result is that from two to twenty percent of those in this group will die. Up until now and for the next few months, we have no real defenses. There is no cure. We may be able to cut the death rate among those in the group at risk in half (over even better odds?) but that is no cure. Life and death is the rub and what makes this literally a war against an alien life form that wants to kill us as part of its procreation. And, as in war, those plotting the society's strategy will make decisions by which some people live and others die. What the Kemp and the GOP are suggesting is that we all storm the virus and while it will kill what? 1-2 percent of the population? once we make the sacrifice, we can go on presumably like we did before. Of course don't count on being able to go back to the way things were. More than that, the history of pandemics has determined the likely outcomes of choices and most of the time, the strategy of a full frontal assault on a viral killer ends up slaughtering innocent people, needlessly. Why inflict that kind of suffering? Today, the AJC also reported that 80 percent of those hospitalized in Georgia were black. This may be largely because race, poverty and access to good health care run hand in hand but for those ill and dying, why should they be the one's to sacrifice.
  10. Major Donny Wix Retires From the Sheriff’s Office (Paulding County, GA) On Thursday April 30, 2020 Major Donny Wix retired from the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic an official retirement celebration was unable to occur, but his Deputies and other Paulding County Courthouse employees were able to send him away with well wishes from afar. Major Wix began his career in law enforcement with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office on November 5, 1984. During his nearly 36 year law enforcement career he served under four different sheriffs and had more seniority than any other active employee. Throughout his career, he has served in the following capacities: Jailer, Patrol Deputy, Warrants/Civil Division Deputy, the Chief Jailer, and in the Courthouse Security Division. Major Wix spent the majority of his career in the Courthouse Security Division where he served in every capacity up to the Division Commander. Throughout his career Major Wix helped streamline and modernize security procedures in the Paulding County Courthouse. Sheriff Gary Gulledge stated, “Donny was yet another pillar of this agency, I wish we could have sent him off with fanfare and a huge party, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were unable to. Once everything gets back to normal, we will host an official retirement ceremony for him and several others at a later date. I hope he enjoys time with his family and gets to relax as much as he wants.” Major Wix’s law enforcement career has spanned nearly 36 years. During his tenure as a law enforcement officer, he has seen many changes. We want to wish Major Wix a happy and relaxing retirement. Now he will have plenty of time to enjoy life and spend time with his family.
  11. (Paulding County, GA) On Friday April 17, 2020 a very small retirement reception was held in honor of Major Tom Murphy in the back parking lot of the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office due to the COVID-19 pandemic. During the gathering, Major Murphy was surrounded by a limited number of co-workers and his wife (keeping social distancing in mind) to celebrate his esteemed career. Major Murphy began his career in law enforcement with the Paulding County Sheriff’s Office and then moved over to the Dallas Police Department. He then briefly got out of law enforcement all together. When he returned to the Sheriff’s Office on April 3, 1987 he realized what his true calling was and remained at the Sheriff’s Office for over 33 years. Major Murphy worked at the Sheriff’s Office until April 17, 2020 where he officially retired. Major Murphy spent the majority of his career in the Criminal Investigations Division where he served in every capacity up to the Division Commander. Throughout his career Major Murphy went through thousands of hours of advanced law enforcement training to keep his investigative skills honed. Sheriff Gary Gulledge stated, “Tom was a pillar of this agency, I wish we could have sent him off with fanfare and a huge party, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic we were unable to. Once everything gets back to normal, we will host an official retirement ceremony for him and several others at a later date. I hope he enjoys time with his family and gets to fish and play music as much as he wants.” Major Murphy’s law enforcement career has spanned over 33 years. During his tenure as a law enforcement officer, he has seen many changes. We want to wish Major Murphy a happy and relaxing retirement. Now he will have plenty of time to enjoy life, spend time with his family, and do a lot of fishing.
  12. Yeah, I heard the undertaking business is set to boom, not to mention the overtime of those in the medical field are earning. But after the congress failed to bail out state and local government, I hear LEO, teachers and other local and state government workers will be being laid off not to mention the rise in state and local taxes to pay for the $5.00 N95 masks being confiscated and hoarded by FEMA. Of course we all know why Trump won't go along with a plan to help local and state governments; it is because the hardest his states and impacted cities are mainly in Blue areas. You know, NY, NYC, Boston, MA, CA, Seattle, WA, Oregon, Chicago, Ill ... I figure Gov. Kemp knows this and knows that Trump is going to block these kinds of transfers from the Feds to the states and if wants any money, he's got to get people out there generating sales taxes. But what can I say, We're No. 1 .... tired of winning yet?

  14. Parks, apparently where there are also playgrounds for the kids, are closed because the playground equipment, picnic tables and pavilions are or could have been reserved and rented before the covid outbreak even for events happening next week or the week after. To break those contracts the parks, pavilions etc. had to close when the emergency orders were given. This act of closing parks is further official effort to dissuade folks from congregating, Trails, which typically don't have pavilions and picnic tables, usually don't have fences along them and so have open access like public roads. Law enforcement is as aware of the issues with covid-19 as are we all. They are going to observe social distancing with those who are showing that kind of behavior on trails or walking on sidewalks or just down the shoulder of a road. OTOH, if you're hosting a rave for 50 friends - even in the country - then LEO may intervene and break up the party. But you can probably avoid arrest not because such an epic display of stupidity isn't worth documenting but because no one in LEO wants to throw dozens of IMMENSELY STUPID PEOPLE (who are probably infected they're so ====> STUPID <===== ) into the confines of a jail in the middle of a pandemic.
