Brarnlett, who lives in Monroe County, said she flighted to Grady Hospital with burns suffered trying to put out a blaze in her kitchen on Tuesday. Re- portedly the blaze started from a pan on the stove. Joyce Smith was burned while trying to extinguish a fire in the kitchen of her home at 320 Maynard Church Road around 4 has been monograming for her own family. Walking around the square, she real- ized that there was no one serving this need conve- niently in Forsyth. She has p.m. on Tuesday. Monroe County EMS responded and took Smith to May- nard Baptist Church on Juliette Road so that a helicopter could pick her up and take her for treatment at Grady's burn unit. Smith was alert and members of her family were able to talk with her examples of monograms but can also custom design them. "Let me know what you want" said Bramlett. "Cus- tom gifts are great!" while they waited for the helicopter. Meanwhile, Monroe County firefighters put out the blaze at the home, and a family member made sure her dog was all right. There was no definite word on Smith's condition or that of her home at press time. A Forsyth man said he fell asleep causing him to wreck into a ditch on Hwy. 18 near Benson Ham Road on Sept 19.

The Towaliga River below the High Falls dam disappeared last week as assistant park manager Michaela Callahan-McCann lowered the water level because Hurricane Florence was predicted to drop eight inches on the area. She said she was trying to protect lake residents from flooding but noted they didn't get a drop of rain. The river is now returning to normal levels, she said. (Photo/Don Daniel) An incident entitled 'Juliette woman placed under arrest after fight at recycling center' on Page 4D in the Sept. 26 Reporter mentioned a "male center employee" as a witness. The witness was only a citizen using the recycling center and was not actually a center employee and therefore should have been referred to as a "citizen" rather than an employee. The Reporter regrets the error.
