Found at www.GeorgiaStateParks.org/LeafWatch, the travel planner is filled with top trails and overlooks, mountain cabins and campsites, fall events and hiking safety tips. Shutterbugs are encouraged to share their favorite shots on the Georgia State Parks’ Facebook page and Instagram, tagging #GaLeafWatch and #GaStateParks.

Local State Representatives J. Collins and Micah Gravley, along with State Senator Michael Dugan, hosted a Town Hall Meeting at the Mirror Lake Golf and Tennis Club House on August 28. Local constituents were invited to learn what had been going on under the Gold Dome and to ask questions, voice concerns, and share comments. The three legislators addressed a packed house.
       

Gravley, representative for District 67, which takes in portions of Douglas and Paulding Counties, introduced himself. He was sworn in in 2013 and is in the middle of his third term. He serves on the committees for Public Safety, Non-civil Judiciary, Economic Development and Tourism, and Juvenile Justice. In private life, he owns a consulting business. He stated his method of writing, sponsoring, and voting for legislation: “I always ask myself how will the laws I am passing affect my kids. What opportunities will be available to them in this state?”
