Much more than a coach': Hundreds gather to remember 'Friday' Richards

Former athletes, coaches, colleagues and friends were moved to tears in the bleachers of Northcutt Stadium on Friday evening as they paid tribute to James "Friday" Richards, the man who influenced so many of them over his 64 years.
There wasn't a more fitting venue to commemorate the life of the longtime Marietta High coach than the field he stood on all those Friday nights - first in high school as the Blue Devils' star running back and later as the team's head coach.

Cobb County's Budget and our Future

Numbers and budgets are not everyone's "cup of tea," but if you live or do business in Cobb County, it's time to take a minute and study this issue. 

First,  click here to understand the current situation - how we got here and what the facts are. 

At issue right now is the County Government part of your tax bill, not the school portion. Hopefully, you were able to attend one of the many Town Halls meeting conducted by Cobb Commission Chairman Mike Boyce. 

So what's next?  

 There will be three Public Hearings on the proposed budget:
Tuesday, July 10th @ 9am
 Tuesday, July 17th @ 6:30pm
Wednesday, July 25th @ 7pm
All three hearings will be held in the BOC Room on the second floor of 100 Cherokee St., Marietta. The July 10th and 25th hearings will be held as part of the BOC's regular monthly meetings.

It is important for Mableton and other South Cobb residents to show up and be counted at this meeting! We have different needs and maybe different opinions than other parts of the County. Help your elected officials - the County Commission - understand how to deal with this budget problem. Their decision will shape our future.
