Here are the top 3 stories from Woodstock Town Lake today.
- A Cherokee County couple has been charged with exploitation, threatening an elder, trespassing, card fraud, and assault in connection with an ongoing case between an elderly mother, daughter, and son-in-law. The three have lived together in a home on Arbor Hill Road in Canton since their mother sold the house in July 2022 and moved in with the couple. The mother bought a car for the couple in the hope that it would help alleviate the “burden” her presence had placed on them. It is said that he began to demand money through A few days before Christmas, the couple are accused of kicking their older mother out of the house. (WSB-TV Atlanta)
- If you have kids over the age of 10, Woodstock Arts’ Every Brilliant Thing is a great follow-up to the mental health debate. A play about a boy who makes a list of life’s “wonderful things” to help his mother fight depression includes an opportunity for audience participation and a “wonderful things” list posted in theaters where items can be added. There are only 6 performances, so if you want to see it, please buy your ticket as soon as possible. (Free: Woodstock Arts and Subscription: Cherokee Tribune & Ledger-News)
- Yesterday’s rains caused flooding in several areas of the county, but thankfully no flood-related injuries have been reported. The Cherokee Sheriff’s Department posted an update on its Facebook page about downed power lines and flooding from Tuesday night through Wednesday. Heavy flooding across Bells Ferry Road and Johnson Brady Road was reported as early as yesterday afternoon. Visit the Sheriff’s Office Facebook page for photos and videos. Amazing.
