We know, it's a bit early to start talking about candidates, but we here at DunwoodyTalk would love to see Nancy Jester as our next DeKalb District 1 commissioner.  She did a great job exposing financial issues within DeKalb's school system, and it seems that skill is needed at the county commission.The existing county commissioners won't want her there, investigating spending and contracts, so look for people outside of District 1 to support candidates not willing to take a stand for the taxpayers.We support Nancy Jester for DeKalb County Commissioner, District 1. Looks like the special election will be on the November ballot.O.C.G.A. § 21-2-540GEORGIA CODECopyright 2014 by The S

Elaine Boyer is no longer Commissioner Elaine Boyer.  She resigned from office August 25th, 2014.  DeKalb will need to schedule a special election so voters can choose the new commissioner.  Being the lone Republican commissioner Boyer rarely got her/our way on issues.  Not sure if the interim CEO will appoint a temporary commissioner for District 1, but I doubt it.  Not having a Republican in the room gives the clowns a couple of months of not having a watchdog of sorts to question anything. And looks like that DeKalb YMCA project just got the green light.  Can someone employed/elected in with City of Dunwoody please update us on Brook Run parks bonds money?De

Rumor on the street says a bank is interested in the property and is already in negotiations.  But expect a bidding war for the coveted spot.  A local cyclist is spearheading a group of investors to put in a Petals and Pedals franchise.  Petals and Pedals, with its corporate headquarters in Ashvile, NC (and its franchise arm based in Berkeley, CA) is a new concept sweeping suburbia.  The stores are half bike shop, half organic/locally farmed & grown green cafe. "We are seeing great franchise growth since UN Agenda 21 was signed into law by Executive Or

The Old Hickory House, a favorite of many locals, has closed its doors.  Most folks visited HH for breakfast. The evening crowd was light.  Local social groups, Old Men posses, bloggers, Red Shirts, and politicians all shared the counter, booths, and tables at Hickory House.  At the HH, all Men were equal, all treated with great care and respect, regardless of your order.  Guys like Farmer Bob would get a cup of coffee and a bowl of oatmeal, while DunwoodyTalk staffers would get Country Chicken with Gravy, a side of bacon, and  a Diet Coke in a to-go cup.Old Hickory HouseLot size is .8 acres and building approx 4200 sq feet. Valued at $1.1 million, up from $870,000
