• Wrens Police Chief Garry McCord resigned his position Tuesday, Nov. 14, after allegations were raised that he falsified a Stapleton officer’s pistol certification.

    Georgia Peace Officer Standards and Training Council Director of Operations Ryan Powell confirmed Wednesday that warrants had been issued for McCord and Stapleton Police Officer Thomas Farthing for the falsification of training records dealing with firearms training.

    “They have been notified that they have active warrants and I think they have until Friday to turn themselves in,” Powell said.

Opinion

Veterans Day is Saturday; and, there are events in our community for veterans on that day. While these events focus on our veterans, the public is welcome to attend. We encourage everyone, veteran or not, to attend as many of these events as possible.

The American Legion Post 229 will host a Veteran’s Day celebration at the Wrens Veteran’s park on Nov. 10 at 2 p.m. Retired Chief Warrant Officer John Wallace and State Sen. Brian Prince (D-127) are scheduled to speak.
