Milton Herald

Milton Herald The Milton Herald covers news most important to the residents of Milton including school, high school sports, city council, business and more.

The Milton Herald is one of the weekly newspapers in the Herald family of publications. Thirty years ago, Ray and Christina Appen bought a bi-monthly newspaper in Alpharetta called The ReVue, left their positions at The Miami Herald and moved to run the newspaper. In the following years, they renamed the paper The Revue & News and increased the publishing frequency to weekly. Following the success of The Revue & News, the Appens started publishing three more weekly papers, a monthy women’s magazine and a quarterly relocation guide. They even expanded outside of publishing to social media management, design and graphics services, digital newsletter management and web- site services. However, the core business remains community news publishing.

Milton and Alpharetta firefighters are battling a fire in the 17000 building of the Deer Trail apartments. An estimated 40 people will be displaced as a result, with the Red Cross called to help them find places to stay. There are no known fire-related medical issues for Deer Trail residents. Given the building’s location, traffic on Morris Road is not currently impacted.

The Roswell, Johns Creek and Cherokee County fire departments are supporting Milton and Alpharetta by helping field 911 calls for the city, while the Deer Trail firefighting effort continues.

This is the third straight night that Milton firefighters – with assistance from our friends and partners in Alpharetta – have battled significant fires in eastern Milton. On Friday night, an abandoned house on Highway 9 burned, and Saturday night firefighters worked a fire in the Avensong subdivision.
