In early May, Porterdale Police Officer Trevor Jones reported to his chief he was under investigation by the GBI and U. S. Post Office. When the results of a urine test came back positive, Police Chief Jason Cripps said he had no choice.
When a memorial escort was on its way to return K9 Sasha, a fallen police dog, to her home in Warwick, Ga., Holly Cripps noticed a white car had kept up with them for several miles. She saw a little girl, on her way from Roswell to Florida for a family vacation, holding up a white, handwritten sign from the window.
From 10 a.m. until 2 p.m., for a series of Saturdays (May 17, June 14, July 12, and August 16), the Mellow on the Yellow summer paddling series will be returning to Porterdale at the Yellow River. The length of the paddling is approximately seven miles.
