Watch: Peachtree City hosts State House hearing on law enforcement salaries

Peachtree City welcomed city leaders, state delegates, and other law enforcement professionals to city hall on Thursday, October 6, 2022.

The House Study Committee on State and Local Law Enforcement Salaries held a hearing in the Peachtree City Council chambers.

Thursday's hearing featured testimony from our very own Police Chief Janet Moon, Fayette County Sheriff Barry Babb, and other law enforcement officials on what can be done to recruit and retain officers.

Former WSB-TV anchor John Pruitt launches new novel at library

Former news anchor John Pruitt remembers well his experiences covering the civil rights movement in 1960s Georgia. Now those memories, from the early days of his journalism career, form the basis of Pruitt's new novel, "Tell It True."

Pruitt came to the Peachtree City Library, on October 4, to discuss and read excerpts from his book. The former WSB-TV anchor told the more than 30 people gathered that while the book is based on true events, the story is entirely fiction.

"Tell It True," tells the tale of two journalists following the murder of a Black serviceman in rural Georgia.

The Peachtree City Library has more events like Pruitt's visit planned throughout the fall of 2022. To find out more about the library's book clubs and future author spotlights, click here: https://peachtree-city.org/1085/Programs-Events
