It was another busy news week in Suwanee. Here's a rewind:

LANIER SEARCH ENDS: The story that has captivated the area recently came to something of a conclusion. Divers on Lake Lanier, which included members of the FBI, pulled the body of Griffin Prince, 13, from the murky waters on Wednesday evening. Griffin Prince and brother Jake, 9. of Buford died as a result of a boating collsion on the lake June 18. Service arrangements have not been announced.

It did not require an election to fill the unexpired term on the Suwanee City Council. Attorney Beth Hilscher, already known in civic affairs, was the only qualifier for the post vacated by Jace Brooks in May. Hilscher should be sworn into office sometime in July.
