"The total amount of the items that were confirmed to have been pawned is $3,060," according to the Smyrna Police Department.
An arrest warrant has been issued for a Cobb woman who allegedly stole more than $3,000 worth of electronics and other goods from a Smyrna home where she worked as a daytime caregiver. After the homeowner hired Sarah Ann Dinkel to take care of her children, "periodically items would come up missing," a Smyrna police officer wrote in a Cobb County criminal warrant. This went on from Oct. 1 until May 4, records show. The last straw came on May 4 when the homeowner could not find her Wii gaming system and the A/V cables on the back of her TV were in disarray, according to the warrant. The homeowner reported the theft, and provided a list of the other items that had gone missing since hiring Dinkel. The list included gaming systems and an iPad…

The latest in a series of Lockheed Martin F-35A high angle of attack (AOA) testing was recently completed. The testing accomplished high AOA beyond both the positive and negative maximum command limits, including intentionally putting the aircraft out of control in several configurations. This included initially flying in the stealth clean wing configuration. It was followed by testing with external air-to-air pylons and missiles and then with open weapon bay doors. The F-35A began edge-of-the-envelope high AOA testing in the fall of 2012. For all testing, recovery from out of control flight has been 100 percent successful without the use of the spin recovery chute, which is carried to maximize safety.

American Atheists plan to send the Georgia Department of Natural Resources enough popular atheist books to place one in every state park cabin. Tell us if you believe the books should join Bibles in the park cabins.
American Atheists, an atheist organization based out of Cranford, N.J., say they plan to send books on atheism to Georgia state parks. In a recent press release the organization wrote: American Atheists announced Friday that it will send the Georgia Department of Natural Resources (GADNR) enough popular atheist books to place one in every state park cabin in the state. The atheist books will be placed alongside Gideon Bibles already in every state park cabin as directed by Georgia Gov. Nathan Deal on Wednesday. The Bibles were initially removed following a complaint from former American Atheist President Ed Buckner who found nine Bibles in a cabin he had rented last month. But on May 15 Gov. Deal ordered Bibles to be returned to all cabin …
She said she was told not to tell anyone about the alleged sexual abuse.
A Smyrna man has been arrested in connection with the rape of a 7-year-old girl. Between Oct. 1 and March 13, investigators with the Smyrna Police Department said Jose Alberto Dealmonte raped the girl "more than one time inside her residence." During one incident, the girl told authorities that she tried to get away, but Dealmonte allegedly "grabbed her by the leg and pulled her back to him," according to a Cobb County criminal warrant. The girl said that Dealmonte told her not to tell anyone about the alleged sexual abuse. "Accused called it their 'secret,' " an officer wrote in the warrant. Dealmonte was arrested Thursday night on charges that include rape, child molestation and cruelty to children in the first degree, according to …
In a unanimous opinion, the state's high court today ruled in WellStar Health System's favor and threw out a lower court’s decision in a medical malpractice lawsuit.
James Jordan, whose wife died more than three years ago from ovarian cancer, was dealt another blow today in a medical malpractice lawsuit filed against WellStar Health System and a physician. In a unanimous opinion, the state's high court determined that a Cobb County State Court judge "was wrong" to order WellStar’s attorneys to give Jordan's attorney the transcripts of interviews they conducted with his wife’s physicians outside the presence of Jordan’s attorney. Nearly two years after Dr. James A. Sutherland Jr. performed an elective vaginal hysterectomy on Marilyn Kay Adams Jordan due to a uterine prolapse, Marilyn Jordan was diagnosed with advanced stage ovarian cancer in June 2008. She died in January 2010, and her husband sued …
