The city recognized the 150th anniversary of the signing of the proclamation on Saturday; speakers reminded the crowd of the brutality of slavery, then and now.
Saturday's commemoration of the 150th anniversary of the signing of the Emancipation Proclamation in Stone Mountain City was a celebration of freedom, but it was also a reminder never to forget the horrors and reality of slavery, then and now. See the attached video for some of the remarks made during Saturday's celebration.

A city police officer who dislocated his shoulder during a tussle with a long-time suspect in the city was recognized Tuesday along with a concerned and helpful resident, city worker and two additional officers.
City of Stone Mountain Chief of Police Chancey Troutman on Tuesday commended a police officer who was trying to subdue a suspect reaching for his gun, and also recognized the two police officers, a city worker and a resident for coming to the policeman's aid in the November 11 incident. During the presentation at the city council's Tuesday meeting, Troutman said officer Jared Marlowe had caught up to a known and long-time suspect, Melvin Rhodes, after a chase into a city neighborhood.

It would cost $3,000 to pay for fireworks for the Christmas celebration in the city. Council members will revisit the issue in November.
The Stone Mountain City Council on Tuesday tabled the issue of funding fireworks for the area's Christmas celebration -- a $3,000 expense -- until it's clear whether the entity Main Street Stone Mountain has the resources to pay for the feature. Councilman Steve Higgins, who is opposed to funding the fireworks, said Main Street Stone Mountain has received a $2,000 donation from a chiropractor who used to be in the city, and that additional donations could be on the way, allowing Main Street to foot the fireworks bill itself (Main Street Stone Mountain executive director Susan Ryles was not present at the meeting). The item will be revisited at the council's November meeting. Resident Diana Roe Hollis, speaking during the citizens' comment …
