Police dog better protected, thanks to Christmas present
Garland “Ray” Burton didn’t want much for Christmas, but his family had an idea anyway. A gift that would be special to him; a gift that would be meaningful to others. The family’s present to Burton was a custom-made K-9 vest that was given in his name to the Carrollton Police Department, and on Friday the 87-year-old Bremen resident, his wife Joyce and their daughter Georgiana Cox got to meet the recipient of the vest- Imala, a 7-year-old Belgian Malinois.

Susan Hayward Centennial
Back in 1958, a Carrollton car dealer and his wife moved to a farm off Old Center Point Road. His name was Eaton Chalkley; his wife’s name was Susan Hayward. In 2016, another Carrollton car dealer and his wife bought the property. Their names are Matt and Amanda Morris. Susan Hayward, whose 100th birthday is this Friday, and who died in 1975, had not lived in the house since 1966, when Chalkley passed away. They spent only nine years together, and lived an even briefer time in the mid-century modern house they built among the west Georgia pines. Today, however, the house is becoming a home to another young family. The place where tinsel once dusted the kudzu is coming back to life. For full stories, please visit us at Times-Georgian.com.
