Pickens VA Clinic dedicates flag on 4th of July

flag

JASPER, Ga. – Today marked a special day for veterans in Pickens county as the VA Clinic not only celebrated Independence Day, but honored the day and the location as they raised, in dedication, a new flag on their flagpole.

flagThe American Flag was custom made by Annin with 100 percent American made materials according to the Va Clinic’s statements online. They said Annin was established in 1847 and is the largest and oldest manufacturer of flags in the world. Their flags draped Abraham Lincoln’s casket, were raised at Iwo Jima, and have flown to the moon.

The Marine Corps League North Georgia Mountain Detachment 1280  raised the flag and the Disabled American Veterans Chapter 47 Honor Guard of Jasper, Georgia conducted a firing salute. Mark Mitton lead prayer to start. Britney Walker sang the National Anthem.

The flag measures 30 feet by 38 feet and was raised on a 90 feet tall flagpole. Owner of the VA Clinic Building, Supervisor of the property, and the man who purchased and built the flagpole in front of the clinic, David Shouse said the event went far better than he expected as they filled every parking space and even had more parking on a nearby hill.

flagShouse said that when he was first asked to build a flagpole in front of the VA Clinic, he was told they could have a small one or something sufficient. Shouse said he replied at the time, “If we’re going to build a flagpole, then we are going to build a flagpole.” Since the construction, Shouse said they have flown smaller flags to let the pole settle and have some time before adding a larger one with more weight and wind drag.

However, Shouse said that the larger flag was not supposed to be delivered until August. But as the times aligned, and they were able to have it delivered last week, they pushed for a more meaningful day, July 4, 2020. Independence Day would become their day of celebration and dedication, for just as we celebrate our freedoms, our independence, and our rights on this day, so too would this day hold meaning for the clinic, and for the flag flying outside of it. A representation that Shouse said would mark a “modern VA Clinic that will provide local care to our veteran’s that have waited so patiently for something they deserve.”

The VA Clinic serves local veterans in, according to Shouse, a community with the largest veteran demographic population in the county and serving those veterans is a necessary service for such a place.

More than just a flag, it is the people who were there to celebrate the dedication, it was the presence of the Marine Corps League, the Veterans, the Honor Guard, the presence of people that made the dedication meaningful. For it is not a ceremony or a constructed symbol that makes something sacred. It is, instead, the people who honor that symbol, the people who recognize the meaning that make it so.

Previous story

There are now two confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Pickens County. One is a male currently quarantined in an undisclosed hospital while a female is quarantined at home, according to Rob Jones, Chairman of the Board of Commissioners for Pickens County.

The unidentified man works part-time at Mountain Education Charter High School. He was last on site was March 9. Jones said he has been updated on the situation and the man was not around any students.

“He worked one-and-half hours to three hours in the evenings,” he said.

Jones said there are no plans to change how the county is dealing with the Coronavirus.

“We’ve had pandemic guidelines since 2007, when Avian flu came out,” he said. The guidelines were created by health and government officials and guide officials on what steps should be taken. Jones said they are periodically updated.

Currently, all government offices are closed to the public. The courthouse remains open, but visitors must disinfect prior to entering.

Jones said they have cancelled some meetings and holding special called meetings. The Board of Commissioners are meeting for a work

“It is open to the public,” Jones said. “Legally, we have to have it open or we’re in violation of Sunshine Laws.”

Jones said they have trimmed the meetings down to just business, eliminating the Pledge of Allegiance and prayer. Nor will they take questions from the public, trimming the meeting down to an estimated 10 minutes. Those attending the meeting should enter through the side door directly into the meeting room.

“Residents can call us at the office,” he said. Jones added that the two cases are cause for concern, but the biggest concern is those who don’t know they have it.

This is not a time for panic, but a time for wisdom. Be smart, keep your distance from other people, wash your hands religiously, and monitor yourself and children for any symptoms. Working together as a community, we can minimize the effects of the virus. Once we learn the results of the test, a decision on what school will look like for the next 3 weeks will be made and passed on to you. MECHS will send additional information via REMIND messages and post updates to our website.According to a post from the Pickens County Sheriff’s Office, they were made aware of a confirmed case from a staff member of the Pickens Mountain Education Charter High School for COVID-19.

Pickens declares state of emergency; candidates weigh in

Community, News
Pickens Board of Commissioners

Pickens County declared a state of emergency in an emergency called meeting on Tuesday. This allows the Pickens County Office of Emergency Management to activate the emergency operations plan, specifically, Chapter 22, Civil Emergencies, located in the Pickens County Code of Ordinances to be put into place.

“What this document will do,” Rob Jones, chairman of the Board of Commissioners, said, “is to remind people of the condition we are in.”

Pickens declares emergency

Pickens County has issued a Declaration of Emergency, allowing only essential businesses to remain operative while encouraging people who can to work from home.

Four people in Pickens County have contracted COVID-19, according the Georgia Department of Health. So far, 1097 people in Georgia have been infected and 38 have died while 361 are hospitalized.

We are the only hospital for several counties,” said Jones. “We have to do something to not get overrun.”

What it means

The declaration states that “all individuals currently living within unincorporated boundaries of Pickens County, Georgia (the “County”) shall shelter at their place of residence.”

“All persons may leave their residences only for Essential Activities, Essential Governmental Functions, or to operate Essential Businesses.” These functions are described in section 10 of the document and states these are activities or tasks necessary for health and safety.

According to a press release, the “shelter in place” directive will limit personal contact. The Centers for Disease Control and the Georgia Department of Health encourage people to shelter in place and to practice “social distancing”– remaining six-feet apart for others.

All businesses, except Essential Businesses are required to stop except “Minimum Basic Operations.” The declaration clarified this businesses may continue to operate if their employees and contractors work at home.

What are Essential businesses

Essential businesses include:

Healthcare, including pharmacies, drug stores.

Grocery stores, certified farmers markets, produce and farm stands, food banks, convenient stores, any store selling canned, dry or fresh foods.

Food cultivation including farming, livestock and fishing.

Restaurants in the county are required to become to-go only per the recent Declaration of Emergency signed by the Pickens Board of Commissioners.

Businesses that provide food, shelter, and social services and other necessities of life for economically disadvantaged or needy individuals.

Newspapers, television, radio and other media services.

Auto sales, gas stations, auto-supply, auto-repair and other related services.

Banks and related financial institutions.

Hardware stores.

Construction and maintenance service providers.

Mailing and shipping services.

Educational institutions for distance learning.

Laundromats, dry cleaners and other laundry services.

Restaurants and other that prepare and serve food, restricted to carry-out.

Businesses that supply products for those working at home.

Businesses and manufacturers that supply other essential business with the suport supplies neccessary to operate.

Services that ship goods directly to residences.

Airlines, taxis, car rentals and private transportation providers.

Home-based care for seniors, adults, or children.

Residential facilities.

Professional services.

Childcare facilities.

Retail liquor, beer, and wine stores.

Food manufacturers and distribution centers.

“We’re wanting to keep as many businesses open as possible,” said Jones.

Jones said the decision to declare an emergency comes after meetings with health officials. He said Piedmont Mountainside Hospital reached out to several civic leaders in phone meetings, including administration, public health, and the sheriff’s department to update each other’s respective offices.

“It’s worked out very well,” said Jones of the system.

Repercussions

While Jones doesn’t think it will be necessary to involve law enforcement–he is confident the residents of Pickens County will continue to do their best to adhere to the suggestions, the measure does give the county the power to step in.

“I don’t think it will come to that. The public is already doing the best they can in this particular time of history,” he said. “Maybe this will be a helpful- little wake up call.”

Observations from the campaign trial

One candidate doesn’t agree with the move, saying it’s just reiterating with Governor Brian Kemp said earlier.

shouse

David Shouse, candidate for Chairman of the Pickens Board of Commissioners, said he felt the declaration of emergency was simply rehashing what Governor Brian Kemp had done.

“I think it came across as a fear tactic,” said David Shouse, who is running against Jones in November’s election. “It caused a lot of confusion and anxiety with the citizens. I would have handled it in an entirely different way.”

For instance, Shouse said he wouldn’t have “waited weeks into this pandemic to address my community.”

Kris Stancil, another candidate for Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, said that while he may not agree with everything that has or has not been done “a time of crisis is not the time to jump in and criticize.”

Kris Stancil

Kris Stancil, candidate for Pickens County Chairman of the Board of Commissioners, says he supports any measure that will help save lives and take care of people.

Stancil also said he isn’t privy to the information current commissioners have when they make decisions but his focus is helping people, so if the declaration helps, then he supports it.

“The more we can all stand united in difficult times, laying opinions and politics aside, the more we can accomplish in my number one objective, taking care of the people.”

Jones said the move was necessary. “We’ll do what we can to keep our lifestyle sustainable, but we have to start right.”

“As precarious as this time is, we are trying to keep people safe,” Jones said. “Common sense must prevail. Don’t panic.”

He said departments such as roads and building inspectors are still operational, but have separated into teams so if one team gets sick, they will have someone available for necessary county work.

“All the government entities are running, there is just no public access to the building,” he said.

Piedmont Mountainside to install a trailer to assist ER

Press Release
mountainside to install trailer

Piedmont Mountainside Hospital plans to install a trailer to provide services for those who don’t have respiratory symptoms.

Piedmont Mountainside plans to install a trailer at the hospital, expanding their emergency department. According to Sheriff Donnie Craig, who released the information, this move is precautionary “if the need arises.”

“This trailer will not be a testing center,” said Craig in the press release.

The trailer will be reserved for people who aren’t displaying respiratory symptoms and provide a way for people who don’t have those symptoms to be isolated from those who do.

Craig also reminded residents to call ahead and provide symptoms when scheduling a time to be tested. He states that testing centers will expand and must follow guidelines. Information on where those new centers are located will be released when they become available.

“The most important thing people can do to slow the spread is to stay home and away from gathering of people as much as possible,” Craig said.

He posted a video on the department’s Facebook. To view the video, watch here.

“The video is several minutes long and may appear to be directed toward younger people, but it is extremely helpful in understanding the measures that are being taken,” said Craig.

The Georgia Department of Public Health has updated numbers of cases throughout the State of Georgia and show 287 statewide positive confirmations with 10 deaths reported. Currently there are zero reported cases in Pickens County.

Craig added they will continue to monitor the situation.

Georgia’s law makers are in self-isolation after one of their own tested positive. Read how they are taking it one step at a time.

Local businesses come together to help

pickens county closings public health emergency

JASPER, Ga.–Two local businesses have teamed up to help both businesses and individuals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

Sharp Top Social Media is partnering with The Old Mulehouse to #supportjasper by encouraging patrons who go out to eat to first, tip their server more than usual, then to purchase a gift card to that establishment. The next time they dine out, they leave that server a tip and the previously purchased gift card while also purchasing a gift card from that establishment.

“I’m passionate about small business,” said Taree Darby, owner of Sharp Top Social Media. “So when Old Mule House reached out to me to see what we could do, I was all for it.”

They are seeing success. Many small businesses are reposting and encouraging everyone to get involved.

“We’re really coming together in an amazing way,” said Darby.

She said the idea was based on a post by Jeff Dollars, who encouraged his followers to tip extra and buy a gift card to pass to the next server the patron has.

Pickens County fatal fire ruled accidental

News, Press Release

ATLANTA – Around 4:00 A.M. on the morning of February 9, the Pickens County Fire Department
responded to a residential fire located off of Derby Lane in Jasper, Georgia. After extinguishment,
emergency personnel discovered the body of Katheryn Patrice Singer Avery, 66, in the basement of the
home.

“The 2,000 square-foot, single-story home was nearly destroyed by the blaze. Most of the top floor had
collapsed into the basement by the time extinguishment efforts began,” said Insurance and Safety Fire
Commissioner John F. King. “Though it cannot be directly linked to starting the fire, careless smoking while
in use of oxygen is likely to have played a role in the cause.”
The body of the deceased was turned over to the GBI Crime Lab, where an autopsy is set to be performed.
Two other individuals were able to escape the home, with one suffering minor injuries and the other escaping
unharmed.

Investigators with the Insurance and Safety Fire Commissioner’s Office are assisting Pickens County Fire
Department with this investigation.
Avery is the twelfth victim to perish in a Georgia fire in 2020.

UPDATE-Peace officer arrested on alleged child molestation charges

Community, News, Police & Government
peace officer child molestation

A former law enforcement officer remains in jail on aggravated child molestation charges following his arrest on Tuesday.

According to records obtained from the Pickens County Sheriff’s Department, Gaylon Earl Mathews, 57, remains, pending a bond hearing. He was charged with two counts of aggravated child molestation and one count of child molestation.

Mathews was a certified peace officer who reportedly worked at a school in Cherokee County, but he lived in Jasper. He was not employed in a law enforcement capacity in Pickens County. Attempts to reach the Cherokee County Board of Education have been unsuccessful.

After the initial arrest, PCSO asked GBI (Georgia Bureau of Investigation) to take over due to the suspects history in law enforcement.

GBI Special Agent Dustin Hamby attested in three separate warrants that Mathews knowingly committed aggravated child molestation from Nov. 1 to Dec. 21, 2014 and March 14 to April 15, 2015, with a child under the age of 16. Mathews also allegedly committed child molestation from Nov. 1 to Nov. 31, 2014 with a child under the age of 16.

O.C.G.A. separates the charges by establishing that aggravated child molestation leaves a physical injury on the child or involves the act of sodomy. Child molestation is any immoral or indecent act performed in the presence of a child under 16. It also includes the use of electronic devices to transmit immoral images to a child.
