Interesting Dunwoody related items to cross my desk.

Tonight - 7 pm

Common Core Meeting comes to Dunwoody High School tonight. State Board of Education member Barbara Hampton will host a public hearing on Common Core Tuesday from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Dunwoody High School.  The hearing will be the second hosted by state board members, who have been ordered by Gov. Nathan Deal to review the national set of academic standards known as Common Core.   To speak at the hearing, Board of Education officials say those attending must sign in upon arrival.

I am a huge fan of Dads' Bucket List - and really looking forward to the "Checklist Challenge" happening at Brook Run Park in Dunwoody on Saturday October 25th and the early bird registration ends on August 31st.   Wives, do yourself a favor and register Dad and the kids now as there is limited football happening that day (Georgia off week).  Prices go up soon.

A new indoor ice hockey facility is under construction at Northwood Drive & Roswell Road in Sandy Springs. (The site is basically at 285, opposite the soon-to-move Ruth's Chris Steakhouse.) Squire Inn, Inc. previously operated a Days Inn hotel on the property, but it was demolished in 2007. Former Sandy Springs mayor Eva Galambos referred to the development as "a first-class ice hockey facility." The facility will reportedly be 31,000 square feet and be open year round. Onsite amenities will include a rink for skating and hockey, locker rooms, a snack bar and a pro shop. The plan is to have the facility ready for guests late in the first quarter of next year.
