 Dunwoody Police Car Officer of the Year, Officer of the Second Quarter and Meritorious Service Medal: Officer Anthony ‘Kerry’ Stallings- On May 23, 2013 Officer Stallings responded to a call for service at the Manhattan Condominiums. Upon the officer’s arrival, he observed a woman standing on the fifth floor of a parking deck, having placed herself over the protective barrier of the garage, apparently preparing to commit suicide by jumping to her death. Officer Stallings immediately made his way to the fifth floor where he found the woman crying while standing with her feet halfway off the nine inch ledge. At this point, the officer began speaking with the woman and after several

Thanks to everyone for the feedback on the Adventures of Ice.  Please know there were a couple other buddies (without blogs) hauling people around as well.  I'm not sure if the Dunwoody Police ATV saw action or not.  All officers were probably in cars (warmer and safer).  Next time perhaps Chief Grogan can hand the keys to the ATV to someone willing to drive around and haul people.  I know Sandy Springs (much larger department) has a decent sized citizen volunteer program.  Maybe Chief can make the ATV posse honorary volunteers or something like that, allowing one to operate the DPD ATV.  This ATV may have seen action this week, perhaps in another part of

When many people acquire a new possession they often name said possession.  Babies fall into this category, as do pets.  Some people name their cars and trucks, and probably bicycles.  I acquired an Arctic Cat ATV a while ago, but never named it.  It's been to deer camp many times.  It's taken the kids for a short spin around the yard. It's been hauled on a trailer for many miles.  It's a 1999 Arctic Cat and its name new name is ICE.  ICEICE ran hard yesterday for nearly 12 hours, starting at 2 PM on January 28, and not stopping (except for refueling) until I shut him down at 1:30 AM on January 29.  Just two months ago this old beast would have stalle

The City of Dunwoody, in conjunction with DeKalb County, the City of Sandy Springs, and Sandy Springs CERT are warning residents that the possibility of snow and freezing rain exists for Tuesday, January 28, 2014.First, please be advised that the Ace Hardware on Dunwoody Parkway BikeWay has a large stock of sleds.  They have the round disc and the traditional long sleigh style.  I suggest opting for the traditional long sled, not the disc.  Make sure you have a rope or some para cord to attach to said sled because your kids are probably too lazy to pick it up and carry it (and pulling is easier anyway).  No returns on sleds so choose wisely.  Don't get the 'runner'

Thanks to the Great Mark Elgart for taking his boot off the neck of the children of DeKalb.  Of course his boot placement shifted to the torso, relieving some pressure but letting us know he still owns us.The Great Mark Elgart announces the DeKalb accreditation upgrade just as the General Assembly gathers at the Gold Dome. Will legislators be fooled into thinking all is well in DeKalb simply because Elgart says so?  Classrooms are still overcrowded, textbooks in demand, and the best teachers flee annually.DeKalb voters need to know Elgart runs our school system now, not Thurmond and the Board.

The aha! lady alerted us to the opening of Cafe at Pharr at Dunwoody so we headed over today.  A nice soup and sandwich on a cold rainy day is always a great idea so the DunwoodyTalk staff and some home-schooled kid headed that way.Service was quick.  We had our drinks within 90 seconds of sitting down.  We ordered and had food within 5 minutes.  The menu is the same as other locations - soups, salads, and sandwiches.The layout is the same as when this space was My Friend's Place - a walk up counter and tables with chairs.  If you are taking food out, go to the counter.  If dining in, have a seat at the table.The lunch options in downtown Dunwoody keep

Do we have a new controversy brewing in Dunwoody?  Take a look at Kerry's blog here:http://www.kerry4dunwoody.com/2014/01/heads-up-dunwoody-club-forest.htmlAt issue is tearing down a house, dividing the lot in two, and building two new homes. The new lots meet the 15,000 sq foot rule. Now that District  2 has a new representative on council perhaps Dunwoody Club Forest homeowners should contact him.  Also, will Save Dunwoody get involved? Surely trees will be cut, and deer will lose crucial rose bushes as a food source. Will we have requests for a bike lane in front of these newly zoned lots?It's a new year, and like clockwork, new issues.

Dunwoody Talk took note earlier in the week when Sen. Fran Millar posted this status on his Facebook page and on Twitter: Now, Fran has been around for a long time so he must understand the positions they’ve (GBPI, Georgia Budget & Policy Institute) advocated for over the years.  He must know where they get their funding (liberal George Soros).  He has to be familiar with their political leanings (extreme left agenda).  After all, GBPI has been working hand-in-hand with left leaning groups like FACE IT Cobb and EmpowerED Georgia.  GBPI’s reports are being used by FACE It Cobb and some of their school board members as the basis to oppose Gov. Deal.   As rep
