Here are the top five stories in Cumming today:

  1. Forsyth County’s 911 Center is being recognized by The National Center for Missing & Exploited Children as they have completed the Missing Kids Readiness Program. The NCMEC is a national non-profit that focuses on locating missing children and trying to prevent child victimization. The MKRP program is just one of the many things the non-profit has to offer in child safety, the organization also helped FoCo 911 Center with its missing child policy to better serve the public. The hopes are that more agencies in the state of Georgia will recognize the importance of this recognition and follow on completing this course and others alike in providing more safety for children.

  3. A car crash occurred Wednesday afternoon Cumming as 29-year-old William Wiggins did not yield for traffic as he approached the Blue Ridge Intersection and he pulled out in front of a pickup truck. The driver of the pickup truck saw Wiggins and attempted to avoid the accident but unfortunately, he was unsuccessful in avoiding it. Wiggins was pronounced dead at the hospital from the injuries he sustained, the driver of the pickup truck’s status is currently unknown. It was determined that no impairment or speed infractions influenced the incident, the investigation is still ongoing. (Cumming Patch)
  4. Now that spring is officially here more and more social media posts of black bears are circulating the internet and it is important to know how to stay safe if you see a bear in your neighborhood. The reason bears normally are strolling through the neighborhood is that they are searching for food so it is important to limit this attraction as much as you can whether you are securing garbage or cleaning your grills more thoroughly to name a few things. It is also important to know what to do if you are in a situation where you and a bear are in a standoff. A good method is making loud noises to attempt to scare a bear off or try to make yourself look as large and intimidating as possible, it is important to never turn your back to a bear or attempt to flee as that triggers a chase response.
