A look back at some top news stories from Suwanee and Gwinnett.

There was news galore last week in Suwanee and Gwinnett. Let's get a recap.

Officials at City Hall and Suwanee Police are preparing to launch CodeRED, a system that will allow residents to sign up for various alerts and emergency notifications. It's a "pretty slick system," City Manager Marty Allen said.

A Gwinnett couple with a background in caring for youths with special needs plans a day-program operation in Suwanee aimed at young adults.

A man charged with shooting a former Army buddy in Suwanee in December 2011 plans to enter a plea in Gwinnett Superior Court. The victim, Carmon McCurrie, has had several surgeries and still suffers emotional trauma from the incident. The defendant, Timothy Amstutz, has been incarcerated since shortly after the incident.

The student editors at the University of Georgia-oriented publication came back on the job after their recent walkout over a flap with board members.

In a close vote, Gwinnett District 3 Commissioner Mike Beaudreau was defeated by Tommy Hunter, a former county employee, in a runoff. However, there were news reports that Beaudreau was considering asking for a recount.
