"The Beacon" No More.


What was once promised to be a cutting edge news paper for North Fulton has now officially closed it's doors. or "The Beacon" as it came to be known in it's paper form, relished in "shock and awe" media coverage. Going after and, according to some, responsible for igniting political chaos in Milton, Roswell, and Alpharetta via it's aggressive reporting.

In addition, some stories were published with incorrect information, angering those affected.

Residential newspaper delivery was also sporatic, showing up week after week and then nothing for months.

There are many rumors that have persisted regarding the demise of this once promising media outlet. However, with the internet now being the primary source for news coverage, it is no wonder so many other newspapers have ceased to exist as well.

We wish those at "The Beacon" the best in their future endeavors.

Good riddens. Fredericks and his paper didn't possess an ounce of credibility and wrote false information constantly without any regard to the art and responsibility of true journalism. Won't be missed and is proof what goes around eventually does come around.

Bye bye beacon!

Wow! What a great loss of a teaching tool.
I used it as a great example of muckraking and yellow journalism in my U.S. history classes. They owe me for three monnths of undelivered papers on my subscription.
