Decatur Police Investigating Vehicle Break-ins

From Sgt. Ross of Decatur Police.

Decatur Police are investigating reports of seven vehicles entered overnight on the Garland Avenue, McClean Street and Brower Street. On 2-10-14 at approximately 7:00 am, a resident on a morning walk located a wallet in the roadway and observed several car doors ajar and called police. Officers canvassed the neighborhood and located seven vehicles that appeared to have been entered. All but one of the vehicles were parked in driveways. All of the vehicles were unsecured. A GPS unit and the recovered wallet were the only things stolen.                                                               

It is not uncommon for there to be a rash of entered vehicles during inclement weather, which we are currently preparing for in Decatur. Please remove all valuables from your vehicles. Please look out and check on vehicles in the area if you hear something in the middle of the night. Call police immediately if you see anyone going from vehicle to vehicle.

Black Hawk Helicopter makes emergency landing in Lilburn

 From ajc
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
It seemed like a normal Sunday for Stacey Schrader and her family as they went to church. When they returned to their Lilburn home however, there was something not quite right about what they saw.
“There were two Black Hawk helicopters in the field across from our house,” she said in a phone interview with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. (see photo)
Gwinnett County police said one of the helicopters had to make an emergency landing near the 4800 block of Five Forks Trickum Road. A Georgia National Guard spokesperson told Channel 2 Action News that a cockpit warning light came on.
Police said no injuries were reported and a second helicopter arrived to assist the temporarily disabled bird.

Marta Plans Shopping Destinations in unused Parking Lots

from ajc
 MARTA is gearing up to take a big step in its plan to entice more riders by allowing developers to build apartment and shopping destinations on underused parking lots at its rail stations.
 Along the lines of Lindbergh Center Station and One Atlantic Center, MARTA wants to launch five additional “transit-oriented development” projects in the next two years. Next on the drawing board is a development at King Memorial Station, which the MARTA Board will be briefed about on Thursday afternoon.
 If all goes as planned, Walton Communities would be issued a 99-year lease to take over a four-acre parking lot near King Memorial Station and build about 380 apartments there, along with some ground-floor retail space. A second transit-oriented development is in the pipeline for Avondale Station. Several more projects are expected to be announced later this year.

Towne Cinema in Avondale still for Lease


--Now and then photo shows the theatre when it was called Avondale "AVON"
The little theatre in downtown Avondale is still sitting vacant.
Check out story about this over at decaturish.com
This photo left is circa 1975 when theatre still had original Towne Cinema neon marquee.

From cinema treasures
Yes, the Towne Cinema was originally the Avondale Theater. Around 1966, the Avondale Theater came under the management of the late George Ellis. He altered the name and instituted a policy of art films and revivals. Prior to that time, the Avondale Theater had become run down and had a poor reputation.

Although Avondale Estates and the City of Decatur (which was incorporated as a city before Atlanta) bordered each other in DeKalb County, they were seperate and distinct communities. Their respective high schools were arch rivals.

What's Next for Jay Leno ?

 From Newser – Jay Leno will host his last episode of the Tonight Show tonight. A roundup of the news swirling around his departure:
  • Sandra Bullock appeared on last night's show, and offered a tearful tribute to Leno, according to the Hollywood Reporter. "You've always been so kind. That's saying a lot in this business, because we like to be mean," she said. "There's not been one time you haven't treated me like I had something to offer—even when the film was awful and you knew it."
  • The Los Angeles Times talked to Leno recently, and he says he's "not unhappy" about leaving. Successor Jimmy Fallon is "really good," Leno says, adding that he even thinks Fallon is "closer to what Johnny [Carson] was when he started."
  • As for what's next, Leno ruled out another late-night TV show. Instead: "I've always been a stand-up comedian that had a day job," he says. "This [Tonight] is my day job. I've always been on the road every single weekend—and the week too—since I got this job. So I'm back on the road. We leave here (today)." His first show is tomorrow.
  • But NBC News doesn't think Leno will stay off TV for long, and offers up seven likely gigs. Among them: variety specials at NBC, an interview show at CNN, a car show on the History Channel or the Discovery Channel, or even a current events show (think a somewhat conservative answer to the Daily Show) on Fox News.
  • On tonight's show: Billy Crystal, Leno's first Tonight guest from back in 1992, and Garth Brooks, the New York Times reports.

---- Best Wishes to Jay Leno.

The One Ring Scam

From ajc
By Clark Howard
clarkhoward.com


That missed call on your cellphone could cost you $30…but maybe not in the way you think.

One of my Facebook followers let me know about an old scam that has roared back to life. Years ago, crooks found a way to exploit a handful of international area codes that don't require a foreign code to dial up.

Now that scam has resurfaced as what's being called the "one ring scam." Crooks are using robocalling technology to place Internet calls that only ring once to cell phones.

If you pick up, the robocaller just drops the line. But the bigger danger is if you miss the call. Like so many people, you might think it's an important call and dial that number right back.

Bad move.

Senga opened at Ponce City Market

 From: poncecitymarket.com

 Have you seen it yet? Tommy Taylor's exhibit Senga opened in the gallery at Ponce City Market last Friday.  We celebrated with our friends at whitespace gallery with an opening reception in the space.  Thanks to those who joined us!

Senga is the Japanese word for line drawing and represents the site-specific installation.  The art of Japanese calligraphy has always inspired Taylor and is evident in this installation.  Taylor opted to "color outside the lines," extending his art outside of frame and canvas and onto the walls of the space, creating an interactive experience.

Senga is the first collaboration between Ponce City Market and whitespace gallery, which represents Tommy Taylor.  Gallery hours are Thursday - Saturday, 12-4 pm or by appointment (404) 849-8176 and will run until March 1, 2014.

Historic Briarcliff Summitt Renovation


From:evergreenpartnershousing.com

Briarcliff Summit Apartments was originally built circa 1900 as a hotel by Atlanta businessman Asa Chandler who is most well known for founding and building The Coca-Cola Company.

 This iconic historical structure operated as a hotel for many years but was converted into its current use as low income housing in the 1980s. The conversion of the property resulted in the creation of 201 units of affordable housing, comprised of a mix of studio, one bedroom and two bedroom apartments which serve elderly and disabled residents. It was also during this period that the property was placed on the National Register of Historic Places, solidifying its importance as a cultural and historic resource within the Virginia Highlands Neighborhood of Atlanta.

Evergreen Partners acquired Briarcliff Summit in August 2012 using the proceeds from a combination of sources including the sale of Federal and State Low Income Housing Tax Credits, Historic Tax Credits, new HUD 221(d)(4) financing and subordinate debt provided by Invest Atlanta (City of Atlanta). The property is currently undergoing substantial interior and exterior renovations, the result of which will significantly modernize the building functionally,but also preserve and stablize of its historic features. To help support the long term affordability at Briarcliff, Evergreen was able to secure a new 20-year Section 8 HAP Contract from HUD which provides much needed rental subsidy to 99% of the apartments at the property. The long term rental subsidy, coupled with our renovation plan for the property, will ensure that Briarcliff Summit remains a stable and high quality source of affordable housing serving the City of Atlanta for many years to come.

Kristian Bush’s first solo concert at The Buckhead Theatre

From accessatlanta.com
 By Melissa Ruggieri
 Chances are, fans attending Kristian Bush’s first plugged-in, full-band solo concert at The Buckhead Theatre Saturday night weren’t expecting a 7-foot clown to stroll down the center aisle, hop onstage and start singing Lorde’s “Royals.” But Puddles the Clown (aka Atlanta’s Big Mike Geier from Puddles Pity Party) usually pops up in unexpected places, so why not? The kooky detour about halfway through Bush’s 90-minute set was a contrast to the singer-guitarist’s sincere delivery and “VH1 Storytellers”-esque vibe, but the fun-loving Bush looked happy to cede the spotlight momentarily and provide backup, along with Larkin Poe’s Megan and Rebecca Lovell, for the recently christened Song of the Year. more

Daft Punk, Stevie Wonder and Pharrell Williams Bring Staples Center to Its Feet


Great comment by Pat Cassar: You're doing something right when you have both of the surviving Beatles boogieing down to your tune.
-- FROM: hamptonroads.com -- By Bethany Bickley The Virginian-Pilot © January 27, 2014 LOS ANGELES Daft Punk won the top honor at Sunday night's Grammy Awards, taking album of the year for "Random Access Memories." The French electronic pioneers capped the night with the win after taking song of the year for "Get Lucky." The two mask-wearing musicians hugged each other for several seconds before taking the stage with Pharrell Williams, Nile Rodgers and Paul Williams, part of the large crew who helped Thomas Bangalter and Guy-Manuel De Homem-Christo produce the album. They beat out Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis and Sara Bareilles for the award. Donning what looked like an oversized forest ranger hat, Virginia Beach superstar Pharrell Williams was among the first acts to present Grammys. He received seven nominations and took home four golden gramophones for "Get Lucky." MORE HERE

Decatur Time Machine - The Decatur Presbyterian Church 1940 and 2014



 CORRECTION ON EARLIER POST I posted this above church photo a couple of months ago and I wanted to correct the post, I listed it as Decatur First United Methodist, but this is Decatur's Presbyterian Church located at Sycamore and Church St. It was taken in 1940 from Church St. after a big snow fall Decatur had received.

This is a early Post Card showing the way it use to look, today it looks very different.

Comment: Anonymous said... Many thanks for posting the pictures of Decatur Presbyterian. The reason things look so different from then to now is that the old sanctuary from the 1940s no longer exists. The entire sanctuary structure was taken down and a new sanctuary built in its place. The stained-glass windows from the old sanctuary were saved and incorporated into todays' building.

School of Rock at Eddie's Attic Sat Jan 25 *** FREE SHOW ***

 From Eddie's Attic website
For more than a decade, School of Rock has been inspiring kids to rock on stage and in life. Founded as a single school in Philadelphia, PA in 1998, School of Rock has become a growing international franchise, operating 69 schools in the US and Mexico.
We believe the best way to learn music is to play music. We take students from the lesson room to the stage, developing both their confidence and musicianship with programs designed for all skill levels.
School of Rock teaches guitar, bass, vocals, keyboards, drums and combines weekly private music lessons and group band rehearsals to prepare students to take the stage in front of live audiences in an authentic concert setting.  
To date our students have played thousands of concerts, to more than 100,000 people, at such legendary venues as CBGB’s, The Trocadero, The Knitting Factory, The Whiskey, The Roxy, The Experience Music Project, The Big Easy and BB King’s Blues Club in Times Square. We have also had the great fortune to be able to perform at music festivals from Lollapalooza and Austin City Limits, to Zappanale in Bad Doberan, Germany.

Romare Bearden "A Black Odyssey" Through March 9 at Carlos Museum at Emory

 From: carlos.emory.edu
In 1977, Romare Bearden (1911-1988), one of the most powerful and original artists of the 20th century, created a series of collages and watercolors based on Homer’s epic poem, "The Odyssey". Rich in symbolism and allegorical content, Bearden’s Odyssey series created an artistic bridge between classical mythology and African American culture. The works conveyed a sense of timelessness and the universality of the human condition, but their brilliance was displayed for only two months in New York City before being scattered to private collections and public art museums. A new exhibition from the Smithsonian Institution Traveling Exhibition Service represents the first full-scale presentation of these works outside of New York City.

Curated by the esteemed scholar Robert G. O’Meally, this exhibition reunites the 1977 series in all its glory. It also expands the scope of the original exhibition with splendid watercolors and other relevant works from the artist’s œuvre. Included is a rare grouping of mid-1940’s Bearden drawings based on the other Homer epic, the Iliad.

This exhibition simultaneously expands our view of the Bearden canon and his influence as an artist, while reinforcing Homer’s continuing relevance as a poet. It also proclaims that to be black in America—and indeed to be American in our new global village—is to participate in a culture that knows no boundaries.

Look for More Changes at food court at Lenox Square.

 From Tomorrows News Today


Simon Property Group is making even more changes than originally thought within their food court Fashion Cafe.

Sbarro, an established pizza chain, that has been in the mall for over a decade, will close as of February 27th.  Sources say their lease is not being renewed.  Melville, New York-based Sbarro filed for bankruptcy in April 2011 and emerged in November 2012 but reportedly is once again in financial trouble. 

Subway is also allegedly on its way out.  (Thank goodness)

Chipotle Mexican Grill is hoping to be open in May in the space to the right of the new Chick-fil-A, following the chain's entry into metro malls.  Last year, the chain opened an immediately popular location within the Perimeter Mall food court in Dunwoody.

Pinkberry is also opening in the mall and will likely replace Delights, an independent ice cream / yogurt shop that has already moved once within the food court.  (Their former space was originally a  Freshëns but is now the home of the soon-to-open Freshii, a "health casual" concept entering Atlanta with its first location at Lenox Square.)

The new Fashion Cafe will sport new seating options and increased visibility and lighting.  Additionally, an outdoor dining area is currently under construction and should open in the spring. 
More changes coming to the food court at Lenox Square.

New Sugarloaf Mills Shoney’s to serve alcohol

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Shoney’s will open its first in-mall restaurant Thursday at Sugarloaf Mills in Lawrenceville. Another first will be full liquor service, the company said.
The new concept will be unveiled at 4 p.m. at the mall, at the junction of Sugarloaf Parkway and I-85.
Chief Executive Officer David Davoudpour said the opening represents a step toward Shoney’s “glory days.”
“We have developed a Shoney’s with more choices that appeal to everyone,” Davoudpour said.
Shoney’s is considered a family style restaurant, competing with IHOP, Cracker Barrel Old Country Store, Denny’s and Waffle House in metro Atlanta. Shoney’s has 165 restaurants in 16 states, including five in metro Atlanta.
According to research by Technomics, which tracks the restaurant industry, Shoney’s was the eighth-largest family dining chain based on 2012 sales, estimated at $319 million. IHOP led the category, followed by Denny’s and Cracker Barrel.
