    Faith-based TV show filmed in Woodstock enters post-production

    Faith-based TV show filmed in Woodstock enters post-production

    A German-based robotics company is building a new manufacturing facility to Canton, expected to create 137 new jobs in Cherokee County, Governor Brian Kemp announced.

    Becker Robotic Equipment, a global cable and robotic machinery manufacturer specializing in individualized robotic equipment, will invest over $30 million in the facility, which will house its North American headquarters.

    Headquartered in Dülmen, Germany, Becker was founded in 1993 with the aim of supplying accessories and integrated automated systems, mainly for the automotive industry. Becker’s new North American headquarters and manufacturing facility will be located at The Bluffs at Technology Park in Canton. The facility is expected to consist of three adjacent buildings and will be designed with clean energy solutions, such as solar panels, according to the governor's office.

    The company is looking to hire for sales and applications engineers, automotive project managers, non-automotive project managers, inside sales support staff, project engineers, office administrators, HR generalists, manufacturing technicians, and customer and service technicians.

     

    A six-episode series was recently filmed in Cherokee County, using the backdrop of local buildings, businesses and areas to help tell its story.

    “These Stones” is a Christian faith-based series written and produced by Woodstock resident Cheryl McKay Price. The series tells the story of a wayward daughter who, after her mother is killed, takes over a supernatural program to help others, according to its synopsis on IMDb.. Though she struggles to believe in God, she finds herself matching mysterious visitors from the past to those facing challenges today.

    The series was shot from September 19 to October 21 in various locations throughout Woodstock including the downtown area, Rootstock, Circle of Friends and a farmhouse in Canton. Scenes were also shot in Marietta. Price said she is hopeful for a release by the end of next year. The show features a cast of actors, most of whom are from Georgia. Several of the crew members and production team are from Cherokee County as well, Price said. Circle of Friends, a Woodstock coffee shop which employs people with intellectual and developmental disabilities, was part of the set in an episode about a boy with Down syndrome and his mother. At first, the mother is afraid to let her son integrate into society because he has been bullied, Price said. The boy wants to make friends, so the mom eventually lets him get a job at Circle of Friends and interact with other people.

    Price said she hopes there could be more seasons to the show, though the show’s first season is structured to tell a complete story.

    The screenwriter and producer said she enjoyed the process, and added that the Cherokee Office of Economic Development’s film office, led by Molly Mercer, was very easy to work with in helping her achieve her vision.

     

    The Cherokee County school board has won state honors for its communications initiatives.

    Herschel Walker brought his Senate campaign to Woodstock Thursday, where he spoke to supporters on the importance of voting for him and strengthening the military.

    Over 100 people came to Black Rifle Coffee Company Thursday night to see Walker, U.S. Rep. Barry Loudermilk, Sen. Lindsey Graham and other speakers, according to local law enforcement at the event.

    Walker, a Republican who is running against Democratic incumbent Sen. Raphael Warnock, started by thanking God, his family and everyone for attending. He urged everyone to vote for him in the December 6 runoff election. Walker first spoke about the problems he said he sees with the military, revolving around issues of "wokeness," COVID-19 vaccines and the need to "support the men and women fighting for this country and strengthen the military." Other issues he said he wants to address if elected include addressing racism and critical race theory and "not seeing color," "respecting law enforcement," reducing crime, controlling borders and inflation, as well as "putting Georgia and America first."

    Bryce Leatherwood from Cherokee County has made it to the top eight on NBC’s “The Voice.”

    Leatherwood was one of eight to move on to the next round from the Top 10 Live Playoffs this week. Three contestants will be eliminated next week. 

    Monday, Leatherwood performed Morgan Wallen's “Sand in My Boots,” and received enough votes to make the top seven and automatically advance.

    In the live shows, the top remaining artists compete against each other weekly during a live broadcast. In this round, the audience votes to “save” their favorite artists, rather than the coaches. You can watch Leatherwood’s performance on YouTube. “The Voice” airs at 8 p.m. Eastern time Mondays and Tuesdays on NBC and Peacock TV.
