About Us - Calhoun Times

The first issue of the Calhoun Times came off the press Aug. 12, 1870. During the almost 14 decades the Times has made its weekly visits to the homes of Gordon and surrounding counties, it has had at least 21 editors and approximately the same number of owners. The founder and first editor of the Calhoun Times was Elam Christian. Of the list of men who have edited and published the Calhoun Times, J. Roy McGinty holds the length-of-tenure record, his association with the paper covering 50 years of its history, from 1929 to 1979, serving his last years as emeritus editor and guest columnist. Times Journal Inc. based in Marietta, Ga. acquired the newspaper in February 2015.

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??
