Since 2016, the Gordon County Sheriff’s Office has participated in “Project DAN (Deaths Avoided by Naloxone)”. The program is administered by the Medical Association of Georgia in response to the nationwide opioid epidemic. Through this program, in which the (Gordon County) Sheriff’s Office was a pilot agency, deputies are trained in the application and use of the counter-drug Naloxone (also known as Narcan). Recently, Sheriff Mitch Ralston recognized two deputies who took action in response to a drug overdose incident near Resaca on March 20th. The Sheriff presented Corporal Robert Garcia and Deputy Jeremy Borromeo each with a ‘Sheriff’s Meritorious Service (Lifesaving)‘ medal “for official actions which prevented great bodily harm or death”, stemming from a report of a woman who’d overdosed on opioids and had been found unconscious and unresponsive. The deputies’ rapid application of Narcan was credited for saving her life.

Calhoun Police in conjunction with the Georgia Governor’s Office of Highway Safety and law enforcement in the neighboring states of Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina are ready to put the hammer down on speeders during the second annual "Operation Southern Shield" speed enforcement. Officer will be pulling over drivers who are speeding on interstates, major highways and local roads from Monday, July 16 through Sunday, July 22. Chief Tony Pyle encourages motorists to drive safely and slow down, and added that during the operation, "if you are pulled over, don't ask for a warning because this is it. The speed limit on every road in this city and state is set to protect everyone who is traveling on them.” According to the latest data from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the number of traffic deaths reported in the state during last year's Southern Shield was 35 percent lower than the past several years during the weeks of July. Troopers with the Georgia State Patrol and local law enforcement officers combined to issue 12,469 speeding citations over the seven-day period and took 552 suspected DUI drivers to jail and also made 472 felony arrests during last year's Operation Southern Shield. While state and local law enforcement agencies will be handling their own speed enforcement operations across the five southeastern states, Georgia will once again join their law enforcement partners in Alabama, Florida, Tennessee and South Carolina for joint operations during the week.

Dalton Police say officers have opened a criminal investigation into the now-closed Georgia Beauty Academy after nine students have filed reports against the school in the last week, and 15 complaints have recently been filed with the state's cosmetology board. Those students showed officers signatures they say were forged on financial aid documents, according to investigators, who added that records from the State Board of Cosmetology showing at least one of the instructors at the school did not have the proper license to teach. The Federal Department of Education said the Georgia Beauty Academy failed to report a change in ownership in 2013. When the department says it discovered that this year, it revoked the school's ability to accept students on financial aid. Other beauty institutions have told students that their hours may not transfer, so at this stage of their investigation, police say it is hard to tell exactly how those students will be impacted.

Authorities are still looking for two men who are believed to have robbed convenience stores in Dalton, Calhoun and Bartow Co., Saturday (06/09). In Dalton, a man walked into a store and said he wanted to make a money transfer.

When another employee saw what was happening, a second male entered the store and told him not to move or "I'll pop you." The men were driving a red car, possibly a Ford Taurus. Investigators determined the same men pulled an armed robbery at a Hispanic owned business in Calhoun later the same day, getting away with $2,500 cash. They are also suspected in another robbery Saturday in Bartow Co. The men are dark skinned, possibly Hispanic or black. One is thin and wore a blue t-shirt and blue jeans with black shoes and a black baseball cap. The other wore a white t-shirt with a black stripe and white pants with white flip flop shoes with red markings and a dark baseball cap.

Police believe a stolen van used in a failed robbery at an East Ridge gas station also carried masked suspects away from another attempted ATM hit at a Calhoun bank early Sunday morning. Calhoun officers responded to an ATM alarm at the North Georgia National Bank around 4:25 a.m. Sunday. As police arrived, they saw a van sitting at the ATM. Its lights came on, and the vehicle took off, almost hitting a police car. While one officer secured the damaged ATM, others chased after the van, which has a Tennessee license plate with tag 347 H104. Officers lost sight of the van on Curtis Parkway near the Rite Aid. A car matching the van's description passed a traffic stop on I-75 southbound. Later Sunday evening, Calhoun police found a black mask behind the bank building, along with a red and black mask behind the Red Bud Road Rite Aid. The bank's key holder told police the suspects did an estimated $10,000 in damage to the ATM, but it appears they weren't able to get away with any money. Gordon County 911 says the van's description matches other ATM incidents in Hamilton County, Whitfield County, and Ringgold. The East Ridge Police Department (ERPD) say the van was stolen from a Kleen-A-Matic lot on Brainerd Road Saturday. Eight to nine suspects may be involved, according to the ERPD. If you have any information on this incident or other those behind it, please call Calhoun police at 706-629-1234.

Four years after the arrest of three then-Calhoun High School students for allegedly attacking a female classmate at a post-prom party, the case's prosecutor said he needs more time. About 12 months, to be exact. Appalachian Judicial Circuit Assistant District Attorney Steve Spencer explained during a status hearing in Gilmer County Superior Court on Tuesday that the ages of the accuser and witnesses complicates the case. They were all high school seniors at the time of the party, in May 2014. Several moved out of town to go to college. Spencer said he needs to wrangle them up at a time when they will all be in the area. He suggested next summer, when they might be on break from college. Defense attorney George Weaver, who represents Fields Benjamin Chapman, argued that Spencer has already had enough time, while Steve Williams, who represents Andrew Isaac Haynes, and Jesse Vaughn, who represents Damon Avery Johnson, have said the state hasn't provided them with any evidence. During the hearing, he told Judge Worcester that the lawyers need to hold pretrial hearings as soon as they can. Spencer then said he and the defense attorneys could create a schedule by the end of next week. Superior Court Judge John Worcester agreed that the case has sat idle for too long. In July 2014, a grand jury indicted the three men on charges of aggravated sexual battery and sexual battery, and also indicted Chapman and Haynes on a sodomy charge. The attorneys held hearings in October 2014 and January 2015. Since then, the criminal case has mostly been quiet. In May 2016, the accuser filed a lawsuit against several parties, including the three men, the owners of the home where the party took place and the Coosawattee River Resort Association. The insurance company for the home's owners settled with the accuser in November 2016, as did the insurance company for the neighborhood association in February 2017. Court filings do not show the sum of those settlements. In May 2017, court filings show, State Farm paid the accuser $100,000 on behalf of the Chapman family, as well as Haynes, Johnson and Andrew Harper, an alleged witness to the sexual battery. During Tuesday's hearing, Weaver said he filed the motion to quash the indictment because the prosecution made severalprocedural errors. He said the state spelled the defendant's name several different ways and mixed up Chapman and Haynes in the accusations. Weaver said the grand jury also did not return the indictment in open court. After the hearing, Williams said he believes the case could end before the lawyers agree on a scheduling order. If and when the case goes to trial, if convicted, combined, the men face up to 10 life sentences.

STATE & NATIONAL NEWS

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention says a popular Kellogg's cereal has been linked to a salmonella outbreak that has infected 100 people in 33 states. The CDC announced Thursday that customers should avoid Honey Smacks, tweeting, "Do not eat this cereal." The agency says it found salmonella in samples of Honey Smacks, which has been subject to a voluntary recall by Kellogg since mid-June. It says that regardless of expiration date, the cereal should be thrown away or returned to a retailer for a refund. The CDC says at least 30 of the people infected in the outbreak have been hospitalized. It says most people infected with salmonella develop a fever, cramps or diarrhea within 12 to 72 hours of being exposed to the bacteria.

North Georgia business executives recently toured the new Appalachian Regional Port site in Murray county.

Officials in Chattanooga are advising people to wash their hands after they have seen seven cases of Hepatitis A since early May. Hepatitis A usually spreads by the fecal-oral route through ingestion of contaminated food or drinks, close person to person contact with an infected person and sexual contact with an infected person. The liver disease is curable with a vaccine.

Always remember to "Look before you Lock!" One of the biggest weather related risks during the summer months is the possibility of a child dying in a vehicle from heat stroke. The temperature inside a vehicle can rise 20 degrees in as little as 10 minutes, and 50 degrees in an hour. The inside of a car acts like an oven, where actual temperatures inside the vehicle can reach 120°F in minutes and approach 150°F in as little as an hour! This can cause heat stroke in only minutes, particularly in children. Studies have shown that "cracking the windows" provides little (if any) relief.

Georgia's new Hands Free Law went into effect on July 1st. The law does not contain a 90-day grace period for enforcement.

Penalties for violation of the Hands Free Law: $50 and 1 license point on 1st offense; $100 and 2 license points on 2nd offense; and $150 and 3 license points on third/subsequent offenses. People can find more information on the Hands-Free Georgia Act at www.headsupqeorqia.com and specific questions can be sent via e-mail to info@qohs.qa.qov.

Federal health officials are warning parents about the dangers of teething remedies containing the drug benzocaine. The FDA is asking manufacturers to stop selling their products intended for babies and toddlers. Benzocaine is a topical anesthetic found in brands including Orajel and Anbesol. Health Officals said that the drug can cause rare but deadly side effects in children, especially those 2 years and younger. The pain-relieving ingredient can interfere with an oxygen-carrying protein in the blood. Officials reviewed 119 cases of the blood disorder linked to benzocaine between 2009 and 2017, including four deaths, according to the FDA. The government agency said it will take legal action against companies that don't voluntarily remove their products for young children. Manufacturers are expected to comply as soon as possible.

In light of recent tragedies at schools around the nation, and even right here in Northwest Georgia, out of concern for residents, Gordon County Sheriff Mitch Ralston is taking positive, proactive measures to protect students and citizens in Calhoun and Gordon County. By submitting requests in an open letter for funding from the County Board of Eduacation, his office is calling for two dozen more officers for the express purpose of being on every school campus to make certain that our community doesn't have to endure a horrible event like so many other towns and cities have been facing recently.

Sheriff Ralston closed his letter by remaining open to any ideas or suggestions from others that could help keep our community and our kids safe.

#FakeNews is being spread by a Facebook page claiming to be the city of Calhoun, Gordon County. (In the fine print they say that the page is a "satire".) Here is a link to the REAL City of Calhoun's Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/cityofcalhounga/. We first reported this story to you back in late February, when the fake facebook page claimed that Calhoun's GEM Theatre was showing a "free Spansih language with English captions" version of the new movie "Black Panther". We hate to say we told you so, so rather we informed you thusly, because now the satirical page has claimed that venemous snakes are lurking beneath the Gordon County Courthouse sewer, and after that post was shared more than 170,000 times, it propmted area residents to call Mayor Jimmy Palmer's office.
