Random Dunwoody tidbits that have crossed my desk.

Have you met Speedy?  He is a free range tortoise at Petland near Walmart.

I hope everyone is enjoying this holiday season, spending time with family, re-centering away from the daily grind in order to recharge your internal batteries.  I am doing the same but here are a few things that crossed my desk or items people have asked me about.

DeKalb Fire Job Fair - Jan 5th.

Grand opening of Chamblee's new favorite oddities shop Rainy Day Revival - Art show, Magic, Circus acts, Snake Lady, Aerial arts, Music, Food & Drinks - January 5th. Support the Arts!

Fox News Anchor & Dunwoody guy Bret Baier, Raps On Stage With The Sugarhill Gang but my favorite Dunwoody Rap star is still DHS class of 2015 grad Calvin Kennedy (Young PK) who at 16 with a few talented friends cut a rap album that is both fun and intellectually deep.  (Never Alone, Speed Limit, Nightmare & Bounce are all worth a listen.)

This warmed my heart for the Christmas Season.

Dunwoody High School is getting Lights - funded by community. Thank you!

Calling all Dunwoody Dads - Michael Wilensky to speak Jan 9th.

Time for me to try to lose a few pounds.

How fast can you solve a Rubik's Cube - Dunwoody competition is primer for worldwide fame!

New restaurants planned at Dunwoody's Crown Pointe (new Embassy Suites Hotel)

Another proposal to “redevelop and revitalize” Perimeter with a grocery store, restaurants and hotel?

Frustration after fake bomb threats target DeKalb schools.

The Heneghan family has been known to host a fire pit with the neighbors every once in in a while and the bride is overjoyed with our new Solo Stove fire pit for the driveway.

Dunwoody PD Daily Bulletin is always an interesting read.

Martin Luther King Jr. Day of Service - Brook Run Park event planned.

Council okays 900 condos, offices in Perimeter - I voted against this development because I didn't believe it fit the needs of seniors or handicapped because of distance between residence and parking.

Everyone knows that Dunwoody Police Chief has served for ten years but do you read his Top Cop Leadership Blog?  I do.

A special thank you to the DeKalb County Sanitation crew that removed a large deer carcass on Christmas morning from the side of the road.  Your efforts were greatly appreciated as one little boy thought he looked a lot like Blitzen.
