What to know as a very busy Monday gets under way:
  • Politics: Candidate profiles, Q&A for the Ward 1 Rome City Commission hopefuls. Topics: Downtown, economic development, transparency. Also: Today’s the last day to register to vote in Nov. 5 election.
  • Heard on the street: Caching translates into cha-ching for downtown restaurants (with an assist from Mountain Day). Plus: We take a bite out of that fast-food wait-time survey – and share some related details that somehow others left out about Chick-fil-A.
  • Two productions, Stranger Things and Black Widow, shooting in Rome again.
  • We have an update on the services for former youth pastor Ken Oates of West Rome Baptist Church. He is being mourned by many today.
  • Sports updates on John McClellan’s high school picks and how ’bout those Atlanta Braves?!
  • Rant of the Day: Is Rome coming unglued? From government to business circles, there are new concerns to discuss.
