Dalton GOP Sen. Payne Faces Primary Challenger From His Right


Shooting at Dalton High School


DALTON, Ga. – The Dalton Police Department is on scene at Dalton High School where shots have been fired.

Dalton Police report that no student was injured by the shooting and all students are out of harm’s way. They also report the subject, a teacher, has been taken into custody.

The subject had barricaded themselves into a classroom earlier today before firing a weapon. Local police and Georgia State Patrol responded to the initial call. Concerning those reports that have come about a student injured during the evacuation, the Dalton Police were adamant that no student was injured by the shooting.

Police are also asking parents to NOT go to Dalton High School as they say, “The area inside the school has been evacuated and there are no students believed to be in the school at this time.”

The evacuated students have been taken to the Northwest Georgia Trade Center where police report parents should go for their children.



Police Department Capture


Jasper, GA – Pickens County Sheriff’s Office found out that the Dalton Police Department was able to capture the suspects mentioned in our previous counterfeit post.

The individuals were caught at a Dalton BoJangles drive through attempting to pass additional counterfeit money. In addition, they had hit 4 other stores in the area within minutes of their arrest.

It appears that they have been traveling from town to town in the North Georgia area.
Arrested was Rachael Nicole Webb and De-Andre Jamahl Rice, both from the Cobb County area.










Great work Dalton!

Nettes Beat West Hall Send Seniors Out With A Win

Team FYN Sports

Last Night, the Nettes Fast Pitch Softball team hosted the Lady Spartans of West Hall at Nettes Stadium. For six seniors, it would be the final time they would step onto the home field. West Hall would start what would be a high scoring affair off early in the top of the 1st getting on the board and leading this one 1-0 heading to the 2nd inning. The Nettes would take their turn scoring in the bottom half of the frame sending 4 across to take a 4-1 lead after 2.

The Lady Spartans would counter in the top of the 3rd, sending 4 across themselves regaining the lead at 5-4. This lead wouldn’t hold for long as senior starting pitcher Jessica Ray would lead off the bottom of the inning with a homer to left tying things up at 5 a piece. The Nettes weren’t done as Angel Dement would step into the batters box and crank one out of the park to give the Nettes the lead back 6-5 as we would head to the 4th. In the 4th, the Nettes would add two more runs stretching their lead out to 8-5 as we would go to the 5th.

The bottom of the 5th saw the Nettes plate 4 more runs as they would make it 12-5 after 5. The Lady Spartans would add a run in the top of the 6th to make it 12-6. The final in this one would end up 12-6, closing the final chapter for these seniors home softball career with a win. After the ball game, Senior Night festivities would begin.

The six seniors, five players and one manager, would meet with their families at 2nd base then walk to the pitchers mound to be recognized for their achievements during their time at PHS and to be showered with hugs, gifts, and flowers from their coaches and teammates and even shed a few tears. These girls have one more region tournament to compete in next week in Dalton Oct. 6-11th.

To Kari Henke, Jessica Ray, Paula Pickett, Brooke Wilson, Kayla Howard, and Haley Kalson we say thank you for all you’ve done not only as athletes and students, but thank you for being incredible young ladies and role models. Good luck in all of your future adventures.

Opinion, Team FYN Sports

I have watched more football, than a Kardashian scouting ex-husbands in the last couple of weeks, and I feel like a lottery winner on Thanksgiving. Okay maybe not that good, but it’s been pretty amazing football. (more…)
