ROSWELL, GA — The national job report for September was a disappointment to economists, who had expected more than the 194,000 non-farm jobs that were added during the month.
The September jobs report was even worse than that in August, when 366,000 jobs were created, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.
The national unemployment rate dropped 0.4 percentage points to 4.8 percent despite the September disappointment.
The latest available local unemployment figures are for August; that rate improved since July in the Roswell area and continues to be lower than it was the beginning of the pandemic.
The Fulton County unemployment rate was 3.7 percent in August, down from 3.9 percent in July. That reflected significant improvement from August 2020, when the unemployment rate stood at 9.2 percent.
The August unemployment rate in Fulton County was higher than the Georgia rate of 3.1 percent, according to the latest local figures from the BLS.
Nationally, 17.4 million jobs have been added back to the economy since April 2020. Still, the country is down 5 million positions (3.3 percent) from pre-pandemic levels.
The jobs report is based on survey data from mid-September, which may have skewed negatively due to several crises in the country, according to The Washington Post. At the time there were 150,000 coronavirus cases per day in the country; the number has since dropped by nearly half.
Parts of the country were also recovering from the devastating Hurricane Ida, and California is still dealing with the effects of ongoing wildfires.
Average hourly wages continued to climb in September, with a 17-cent gain to $30.85. Hourly wages have grown for six months in a row as employers look to fill vacant positions.
Employees have been more willing than ever to leave their employers. A record 4.3 million employees quit their jobs in August, according to the BLS.
The leisure/hospitality and professional/business service industries led the way for September job gains with 74,000 and 60,000 jobs, respectively. Retail trade jobs increased by 56,000 jobs after two months of little change.

ROSWELL — When the jack-o'-lanterns you carved from the best pumpkins plucked from patches and fields around Roswell this fall start looking droopy and sad, they still have life.
While uncarved pumpkins can last two to three months indoors, carved pumpkins usually only last a few days before they start to decay. Streets and porches all over Roswell are often filled with the wilting, sagging faces of jack o'-lanterns getting older by the minute.
But as with Christmas trees a few months later, there are many ways you can recycle these pumpkins that will help birds, wildlife and the planet.
Pumpkin seeds are a healthy and popular snacking treat for a variety of birds and wildlife, especially as the weather gets colder and food is harder to come by. As your pumpkin starts to soften and fade, collect the seeds from inside, and give them a day or so to dry.
Don't add any kind of seasoning, even salt, Birds & Blooms advises.
Then scatter the seeds outside, or put them in a birdfeeder or bowl. If you live in an area with bears or other harmful predators, try placing the seeds on an upper level that only birds and smaller animals like squirrels and chipmunks can reach.
2. Make A 'Snack-O'-Lantern'
You can also just cut out the middleman and turn the pumpkin itself into a "snack-o'-lantern pumpkin feeder," according to the National Wildlife Federation.
Just take the pumpkin, cut it in half, scoop out the middle, and attach the top and bottom halves of the pumpkin with string and several wooden dowels.
Fill the bottom half with either birdseed, pumpkin seeds, or both. See here for more detailed instructions from the National Wildlife Foundation.
You could also use the seeds for their intended purpose: making more pumpkins.
To save and store pumpkin seeds for the following year, place the pulp and seeds from the pumpkin inside a colander, according to Gardening Know How. Wash cold water over it, and pick out a few of the largest seeds.
Spread the rinsed seeds far apart from each other on a dry towel, and place that towel in a cool, dry spot for a week.
Place the seeds in a seed envelope, and place the seed envelope in a plastic container with several holes poked in the lid. Put that container in the back of a refrigerator, and get ready to plant your own private pumpkin patch next year.
Animals and birds love pumpkins just as much as people do, so why not give them a special treat? Simply cut the pumpkin into small, bite-sized pieces, and scatter them in a spot where you won't mind local critters coming to nosh, the National Wildlife Federation advises.
Again, this one is probably best to avoid if bears, foxes, coyotes, rats or any variety of predators and pests are a problem nearby.
If you feel more comfortable leaving the animal feeding to professionals, consider donating the pumpkin remains to a nearby zoo. Many zoos accept pumpkin donations after Halloween because they are a nutritious snack that most animals love.
If your pumpkin is truly on its last proverbial legs, put its nutrients back into the earth by composting it. Even if you don't have a compost pile, you can put it in your garden, and many areas offer municipal composting services. Just make sure you take out all the seeds first, lest an impromptu pumpkin patch begins to sprout out of the compost.

An independent investigation of Roswell’s Oxbo Road project found extreme mismanagement that is costing the city millions of dollars.
The city is realigning Oxbo Road and nearby side streets and intends to build a safer intersection with South Atlanta Street. But work on the closed road stopped months ago. The project costs have zoomed past its $9 million budget to reach almost $14 million. In February, Roswell Mayor Lori Henry launched an investigation into mismanagement of the project.
A report by Jarrard & Davis law firm, hired by Roswell to look into the troubled project, found delays and cost overruns are the result of several factors including the failure to have a project manager, no utility relocation plan and failure to follow proper steps to purchase private property or access rights.
Henry released a statement on the investigation late Thursday afternoon and a link to the law firm’s findings.
“Mayor and Council were aware there were issues with the Oxbo Realignment project because of delays in construction,” Henry said in the statement. “However, I was surprised and disappointed to learn in the report of the extent of the issues with this project, particularly with the right-of-way acquisition.”
Councilwoman Christine Hall said she was shocked by the findings.
“It’s a travesty for the citizens,” she said. “This is horrible that anyone would operate in this manner.”
The Oxbo realignment is currently funded via a transportation special purpose local option sales tax project approved by voters in 2016.
The project’s timeline dates back to 2006 when it was included in the Transportation Master Plan, according to the law firm’s report. In 2009, the city paid $122,000 for a land survey and initial engineering services for the project.
In February, officials estimated Oxbo Road was costing the city nearly $14 million — a significant increase from the original budget of $9 million — due to issues including a $2.5 million legal settlement paid to property owners. The settlement was paid to Jason, Alfred and Benita White, family owners of Roswell Hardware Company, formerly located at the corner of South Atlanta Street and Oxbo Road. The city had defaulted on a temporary property ownership agreement after paying the family $3 million in 2017.
Residents have called the project located near historic downtown Roswell an “epic failure.”
The Jarrard & Davis investigation report shows several payments to property owners over the years from less than $10,000 to hundreds of thousands of dollars for the city to acquire easements or outright ownership. That was often necessary in order to relocate Georgia Power utility poles, according the city and the report.
In conducting transactions for property, the city didn’t follow state law, the report said. The investigation found properties were not appraised properly to set a basis for “just compensation” before beginning negotiations with owners.Given the numerous transactions, Councilwoman Hall said it’s difficult to trust the project’s inflated price tag.
“I don’t have confidence in that $14 million number … based on the sloppiness and lack of accountability and lack of responsibility for this project,” Hall said. “I would have to revisit (the expenses) to see what makes up that $14 million. It might be right. It might not be.”
Councilman Marcelo Zapata said that in addition to Oxbo Road he’s concerned about management of other major projects in Roswell such as the $50 million Roswell Historic Gateway Project.
“It’s very unfortunate what happened (with Oxbo), but people saw this coming,” he said. “We cannot make the same mistakes moving forward.”
In releasing the report to the public, Henry wrote, “...The report provides a number of recommendations that the City will be implementing immediately. I want to assure our citizens that the issues outlined in this report will never happen again. We will be looking at everything including process, procedures and personnel.”
The full investigation report by Jarrard & Davis can be found on the city website roswellgov.com/government/mayor.
Three “problems” cited in the investigation
In 2010, Roswell agreed to purchase an “old” 18-unit apartment complex at 15 Oxbo Road from a private owner for $700,000. The city appraised the property after the sale. That appraisal said that property was worth $700,000, but the city also agreed to give the apartment owner another city-owned lot that was sold in 2017 for $430,000.
In 2017, Roswell agreed to acquire the Roswell Hardware store property at 685 Atlanta Street for $3 million with the understanding a portion of the property would be returned to the owner in a developable state by 2020. The city failed to do so and paid the owners another $2.5 million to settle all claims.
In 2018, Roswell paid a company $300,000 for properties on Maple Street, including some it did not own. The city later paid the actual property owner another $375,000 for property and to remove buildings. The report says the company did not refund any money and the city has suffered at least $299,000 in damages.

Roswell will host the 2nd Annual Dia de los Muertos Festival on Saturday, October 30, 2021, from 2:00 to 8:00 p.m., on the grounds of City Hall, 38 Hill Street in Roswell. Visitors of all ages are invited to celebrate this traditional Mexican holiday, which will feature an afternoon and evening filled with fun, remembrance, and community spirit.
Dia de Los Muertos—or the Day of the Dead—is traditionally celebrated October 31 to November 2 in the central and southern regions of Mexico. The holiday is centered around remembrance of lost loved ones, as communities come together to celebrate their memory and pray for their safe spiritual journey.
This year's festival is presented in partnership with Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces. The City of Roswell hosted the first Dia de los Muertos festival in 2019 but was unable to bring it back in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The festival is free to the public, with the exception of food vendors and one special ticketed experience. Highlights include:
• Traditional Entertainment: Aztec dancers, Oaxaca Group and a mariachi band • Food: On-site vendors will sell Mexican cuisine, such as empanadas and tamales. • Face Painting: No Dia de los Muertos celebration would be complete without traditional candy skull face painting. Free, but tips appreciated. • Movie: "Coco," starting at 6 p.m. • Ofrenda: Visit a traditional altar honoring family and friends who have passed. • Costume Contest: Wear your favorite Day of the Dead costume and paint your face for a Catrina and Catrin contest to be held at 5 p.m. Cash prizes will be awarded for best costume. • Tequila/Specialty Margarita Tasting Experience: Showcasing the unique flavors of Mexico, this experience includes tasting tokens and a souvenir tasting glass (for the first 500 participants). For $35, you will receive eight (8) tokens that can be used to taste any combination of six (6) different types of specialty margaritas (4 oz. sample) and four (4) different types of Tequila (a Blanco, Joven, Reposado, or Anejo) (1/2 oz. sample).
Vendor, artist, and exhibitor opportunities are available. All vendors must be Day of the Dead themed, and products must be sold by the artist or direct representative.
