Johns Creek Herald

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

The Johns Creek 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.

Chief... I want to trust you I want you to be a fair and honest chief and man. I pray for your strength. let this be news to you Black people need you. your town, county, state, and the country needs you. Be strong and look at both sides of the issues, try to understand what Black families see. the Police have the power, the law, and sometimes the willingness to kill and or abuse. for as long as I've been alive some White people have gone out of there way or (maybe without knowing) to give the impression Black lives don't matter. Please do not lose your job over words. just do the job. We have never met and will probably never meet but... and I don't know why I just have a good feeling about you. Be strong and please be safe. Be careful what you post there is no good way for someone in your position to talk about race today.
I am so glad I do not live in your racist city. Yes, brian weaver is a racist and exactly what is wrong with his country.

The stretch of road on Kimball Bridge between Jones Bridge and Old Milton recently added and abundance of sidewalk lights. While the recently added sidewalks on Abbotts Bridge between Jones Bridge and Parsons has zero street lights and no plans to add any? Why? It seems Kimball Bridge could keep every third light on both sides of the road having plenty of light and add those removed to the section along Abbotts Bridge. Curious why the overkill in this one area and nothing on the other section?
Please spread the word and plan to attend!!! Newest and best craft fair in the area! You don't want to miss it!!!
