Gene Lowery, Probate
Judge and close friend to all who knew him, passed away Wednesday night
from cancer. Gene was a wonderful Christian who genuinely loved Catoosa
County and was a servant of the People. He was a Deacon at Peavine
Baptist Church and the funeral will be held there. When full
arrangements are known, I will post them here. Please continue to pray
for his wife, Sandy and two children, Steven and Casey.
Judge House will be
taking the final pleas on Thursday, April 17th at 9:00 am. After
that, there will be no further pleas taken. There are only a few
remaining cases on the Criminal Jury Trial list. All cases will be
sounded for trial Monday, April 21st.
The week of the 21st
of April has several scenarios involving the availability or
non-availability of Judges. The trial in Ringgold could spill over
to the 21st so if it does, there will be one Judge riding the Circuit
and one Judge holding criminal jury trials in Dade County. This
will probably not unfold until Friday afternoon. Please plan
The Short List on
the Dade County page shows the remaining felony and misdemeanor jury
trials remaining for the week of April 21st. All cases not specifically
continued by the presiding judge (Judge House) should be ready for trial

When To Print A New Calendar
When I make updates to the
calendar, I promise the date to the left will change. Most of the
time these changes are small and do not require a new printed calendar.
If I DO change the calendar to the point it requires you to reprint a
month, I will notify you here under the News banner. I'm just that
kind of guy.
