Here are today’s top five stories in Woodstock-Towne Lake:

  1. Two Canton families found a shocking surprise in their children’s Halloween candy — sewing needles. We’ve heard the story for eons, but it’s never been anyone we know. Now it happened in real life. The two families found the needles in Reese’s Take 5 candy bars, and both incidents happened in the Great Sky neighborhood, off Reservoir Drive. Luckily no one was injured and no further reports were made. Please check your children’s sweets and contact the police department if you have any information regarding the incidents in question. (WSB-TV Atlanta)
  2. Officer Joe Burson, who was killed in an on-duty traffic stop in 2021, was honored with the renaming of I-575 at the Sixes Road interchange in his memory. The section of the freeway will henceforth be known as the Officer Joseph W. Burson Memorial Interchange, and signs will be placed there at the entrances and exits. Officer Burson, 25, served just 18 months with the Holly Springs Police Department before his tragic death. (Fox 5 Atlanta)
  3. The Cherokee Sheriff’s Office is searching for a missing person, Alexis Brianna Chandler, who has been missing since the evening of October 29th. The 19-year-old was last seen on the Adams Road area in the Freehome area of ​​the county and her vehicle was last seen on the Jonesboro Road area near McDonough. The sheriff’s office posted a picture of the vehicle and the missing person on their Facebook page here. If you have seen them or have information that might help, please contact Sergeant Robert Haugh of the Criminal Investigations Division at 770-928-0239 or 9-1-1 and reference case SO22-015334. (Cherokee Sheriff’s Office via Facebook)
  4. The Hub Transformation Project is in full swing. Traffic will be diverted around the new roundabout at Towne Lake Parkway and Mill Street during construction in the middle of the roundabout. This will realign Mill Street lanes to make room for curb and gutter work. Milling and paving will take place at this time and striping and signage will follow. The new traffic pattern will come into effect on the morning of November 9th. (City of Woodstock via Facebook)
