At the north end of beautiful Sugar Valley, located on 500 acres is Mountain Top Boys Home, a place designed to “help young men prepare to take an ethical and responsible citizenship role in the community.”

Gary Stout, executive director, was introduced at the most recent Rotary Club meeting by Charles Prater, program chair. Stout came to Mountain Top after being program director at Georgia Baptist Home for several years.

Stout says Mountain Top has the capacity to have 16 residents, all boys between the ages of 12-17 who are referred from Department of Family and Children Services or the Department of Juvenile Justice. The length of stay ranges from six months up to three years, depending upon the individual needs of each resident.

The program is licensed and inspected by the State and is governed by a Board of Directors. Staff are on duty 24-hours a day and consist of house parents, therapists and others.

What do you think should happen with the Calhoun Police Station?

The current Calhoun Police Station has been found to have harmful mold, asbestos and lead paint within its walls. The City of Calhoun had many options to choose from: rehabbing the current police station to bring it up to health standards; renting a building for the police to use as a station or buying property and building a station. The City Calhoun has dwindled those choices down to: purchasing the Fred's building and property on Curtis Parkway near the Calhoun Primary / Elementary school OR building on land offered to the City of Calhoun free of charge on McDaniel Station Road, across from the future site of the GBI Regional Facility. What do you think the City should do??
