Winnona Park Home Featured on Curb Appeal: The Block



Decatur, GA
Curb Appeal:The Block in Winnona Park

From the HGTV site: Vicki Johnson spent all of her savings moving into a home in Decatur, GA so that her daughter could benefit from the amazing school system. Unfortunately, that left her with no money to spend updating her home. Designer and architect John Gidding and his team have stepped in with a design plan that will take Vicki's breath away. The bright green and yellow house color are the most important aspects of the house that need to be changed but John's plan also includes a proper patio in her front yard as well. Down the street, Vicki's daughter's elementary school Winnona Park also benefits with a new entry way. In this special episode, we're not only bringing this block together, but also improving the environment for local students.
New side entry way for Winnona Park School.
HGTV : This episode was on last week,so look for this episode in the reruns, they show them during the week.

Property and Business owners plan to Clean up E. College Ave

Champion Newspaper
Written By: Jonathan Cribbs
A group of property and business owners under threat of annexation along East College Avenue plan to start tidying up the area this month with the help of a county commissioner.

On Feb. 27 commissioner Kathie Gannon will join on a small group of business owners who have protested several state representatives’ plans to annex a tract of unincorporated DeKalb County sitting between Decatur and Avondale Estates. The proposal would essentially bring Decatur’s borders east and Avondale Estates’ borders west along the small stretch of commercial property, making Sam’s Crossing the new border.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

The Avondale Estates Police Department is launching a program next month to encourage strong relationships between the department and citizens.

The Citizens Police Academy is designed to give civilians a better understanding of the department and its role and duties. The eight-week course will cover everything from traffic enforcement to firearms and use of force.

The program begins on March 16 and is open to residents and business owners in the city.

Bike-lane project for Decatur is a Go.

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution


A new bike lane from downtown Decatur to the city’s western edge is just months from breaking ground.

The city recently signed a contract with the state Department of Transportation, for the bike lanes along West Trinity and West Ponce de Leon avenues. Bids could be returned on the project in the next four to six months, said assistant city manager Lyn Menne.

The city will spend $65,465 of its own money, along with $261,860 in federal grant money, to build the lanes. They will eventually connect to city-planned streetscape projects downtown, linking to the PATH trail that runs along the railroad tracks, Menne said.

The Variety Playhouse aka The Euclid Theatre


An icon of Atlanta's little five points district, this opened around 1945 as the Euclid Theatre (you can still see this name painted on the east side of the building). The theatre became the Variety Theatre sometime during the 1950's.

From 1961 until the late 1980's the theatre stood vacant until George Ellis aka Bestoink Dooley acquired the lease and relocated his Film Forum from Ashley Mall to the site. The theatre wasn't able to compete with the multiplexes that were now booking art films that were previously the priority of the Film Forum. The theatre is currently part of the group that manages the Roxy and the Temple concert halls. In 2007, it was renamed Variety Playhouse.

New Avondale charter school to hold lottery for coveted slots Friday

Children in kindergarten through third grade who live in the Avondale Elementary and Midway Elementary school attendance zones. The school will expand by one grade each year through eighth grade.


by Maureen Downey
ajc

According to a press release:

The Museum School of Avondale Estates will hold a lottery on Friday to determine enrollment for the 2010-2011 school year. Applicants enrolled will become the first class of students for the new state-chartered public school.

The lottery will be held at noon at Avondale Estates City Hall, located at 21 North Avondale Plaza. Andrew Lewis, chief programming officer with the Georgia Charter Schools Association, will certify the results.

Because the number of applicants exceeds the number of spaces available, a lottery is necessary to ensure a fair process with equal access for all prospective students. The school is open to students who live in the Avondale and Midway elementary school attendance zones.

Students whose names are not drawn in the lottery will be placed on a waiting list to be enrolled if space becomes available.

The lottery is open to the public, and parents of applicants are invited to attend. Following the lottery, lists will be posted at Avondale Estates City Hall. Parents will also receive notification by mail and will have 15 days to notify the school of their intent.

US Airways Hates Families and Kids says mother of two.

I found this blog story today about a mother and her kids who can't sit together on a plane, which I thought was good, it is a must read.


by Sierra on February 15, 2010

in Uncategorized

If you have kids, don’t fly on US Airways. We were on three flights of theirs yesterday as we slowly made our way from Boston to Tucson. Not once was I assigned a seat near my kids.

Now, I confess that when I saw I had a boarding pass for seat 5D and my kids both had seats in row 26, I was delighted. Who wants to sit between a two-year-old and a 5-year-old on a cross-country trip? Not me.

When I approached the gate agent to point out the error, I said, “Hey, I’m perfectly happy not to sit anywhere near these kids on the plane, but I’m sure you won’t really let me do that. Here’s my boarding pass, change my seat assignment.”

Greene's Fine Foods - Nuts, Candy, Gifts , Fun and Snow.


Decatur, GA

http://www.greenesfinefoods.com/

Kevin Gillespie, “Top Chef” plans to open a BBQ Joint.

Bravo’s “Top Chef” saved Kevin Gillespie from financial ruin. Business had been so slow at Woodfire Grill that there were nights last year when just a couple of diners – and sometimes none at all – came in.

“I can’t tell you what it feels like to work all day tweaking and getting things ready to share with people and then have no one show up,” he said. Trying out for the show was a last ditch effort to save the restaurant he’d bought with two partners.

“We’re sitting there, literally, praying that Bravo would call,” he said. “We kept borrowing money, scraping by. We wouldn’t have lasted six more months.”

Now that his “Top Chef” run has ended he’s enjoyed getting back into the groove at the restaurant – and has plans to open another one. Details are still coming together, so he couldn’t reveal some of the specifics, but it’ll be a barbecue restaurant that he and his partners will operate while maintaining Woodfire.

A Charming Winnona Park Bungalow


Decatur, GA.

Winnona Park is a historic neighborhood in the southeast corner of the Atlanta, Georgia suburb of Decatur. It is listed as a historic district on the National Register of Historic Places, [1] but it is not one of the City of Decatur's locally designated historic districts.

Winnona Park is located south of downtown Decatur; west of the Village of Avondale Estates, Georgia and the Forest Hills subdivision; and east of Decatur's Oakhurst community. It primarily consists of residences, but is also known as the home of Columbia Theological Seminary. Its rough boundaries are Mimosa Drive and the Decatur city limits on the south; East College Avenue and the railroad tracks on the north; South Candler Street on the west; and South Columbia Avenue on the east. In addition, the commercial buildings on the east side of South Columbia Ave. at East College Ave. have historically been part of this community. This commercial cluster historically housed the neighborhood pharmacy, gas station and barbershop.

The early families of Winnona Park also have historic links to Agnes Scott College, which adjoins Winnona Park on the northeast. However, the South Candler Street—Agnes Scott College Historic District is listed separately on the National Register of Historic Places. The City of Decatur has also designated South Candler Street - Agnes Scott College as a local historic district. Bounded by East College Ave., South McDonough St,, South Candler St., East Hill St. and East Davis St., it is no longer considered part of Winnona Park.

In addition, the Forrest Hills community east of South Columbia Avenue is located in unincorporated DeKalb County, and is not considered part of Winnona Park. However, the City of Decatur announced in 2008 that they were considering the annexation of Forrest Hills.

Junk for Cash

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Crumpled police cars, tractors missing tires, decade-old garbage trucks and a repainted ambulance fill a lot near I-285 and Memorial Drive.

It’s the “Island of Misfit Toys” for DeKalb County equipment. But officials hope the abandoned vehicles and other paraphernalia will find new homes and generate cash to help the county close an $84 million deficit.

The crashed trucks may only generate a few thousand dollars each, but every little bit helps, DeKalb County Commissioner Larry Johnson said.

“These are vehicles that have been wrecked or have too many miles to be considered safe on the road,” said Johnson, the County Commission’s presiding officer.
