Atlanta Had Fourth-Most Growth From 2010

Here’s a temporary reprieve from Coronapol: the Census Bureau released data on the fastest-growing counties and cities of the last decade. No Georgia counties were in the top-10 fastest-growing counties. Atlanta is still the ninth-most-populous city with 6,020,364 residents as of July 1, 2019. That’s up from 5,286,718 on April 1, 2010. The extra 733,466

Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President

When we think of the greatest POTUS from Georgia we probably picture more of a Principal Chalmers-esque character than a Gene Simmons-esque one. However, as you’ll see in this exclusive preview of “Jimmy Carter Rock & Roll President”, the man’s got rhythm in his heart. The “rockumentary” will kickoff the Tribeca Film Festival on April

Congressman Lewis To Receive Top NAACP Award

The NAACP announced this year’s Chairman Award will go to Congressman John Lewis. Congressman Lewis will receive the honor during the February 22 NAACP Image Awards.

How To Explain This Rep. Trey Kelley Story

11Alive’s investigative news show “The Reveal” ran a story that, if true, is incredibly disturbing for Rep. Trey Kelley and Cedartown Police Chief Jamie Newsome. The condensed story: a reported friend of Rep. Kelley, Ralph “Ryan” Dover, hit a bicyclist in Cedartown who eventually died. Rather than call 911, Dover called Kelley. He too failed

Be BRAVE this Indigenous Peoples Day!

I never even heard of Ryan Helsley before last week.   The Cardinals pitcher apparently caused an upset in the athletic world after he boldly forced people to acknowledge something they already knew.  The Brave’s tomahawk chop is offensive and reinforces a stereotype created centuries ago.  Per usual, sports fans were more upset that their team

Sen. Isakson Leads Bipartisan Senate Delegation at Normandy D-Day Memorial

Photos are here. Copying from the press release: U.S. Senator Johnny Isakson, R-Ga., chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, this week led a bipartisan Senate delegation to Normandy, France, for the 75th anniversary of the D-Day invasion by Allied forces during World War II. The 17-senator delegation joined President Donald J. Trump and

Isakson Proposes Legislation to Expand Ft. Frederica, Kennesaw Mt. and Ocmulgee Mounds Parks

Apparently, Thursday was “Expand Georgia’s National Parks Day” in Senator Isakson’s office. He reintroduced legislation to protect and expand the parks of Fort Frederica, Kennesaw Mountain and the Ocmulgee Mounds. The legislative effort included Senator David Perdue and a bi-partisan coterie of Georgia’s congressional delegation introducing the same legislation in the House of Representatives. The Fort

More Stadiums

Credit to political commentator Robert Patillo, who likely knows far more about sports than I, for reminding us that we have had NINE professional sports team stadiums with very few national titles. Fulton County Stadium + Georgia Dome + Mercedes Benz = No Titles Omni + Phillips Arena + State Farm Arena = No Titles Fulton
