@midtown resident - get a pellet gun and find a good vantage point to wait it out.
I live at 220 Renaissance Parkway. Last week as I slept a rat crawled across my arm. I am completely traumatized. The HOA refuses to exterminate my condo and it is my issue to handle. I was quoted $800.00 to exterminate my place. I thought about setting my own rat traps, but after reading these posts and article I have changed my mind. I'm the only person who has complained so HOA is not going to do anything to help me. I don't know if I should call the Fulton County Health Dept. or just handle it myself and pay for it. I don't want to cause trouble, I am just very scared. I have not slept since the incident.
Giant rats at 22 Peachtree Avenue Apartments (Buckhead Gardens). Habersham Properties keeps ignoring this infestation after numerous complaints. Little children and people are at risk, what can we do? where do we need to complain? PLEASE HELP! Habersham Properties should change their name to HaberSHAME Properties!!!
PLEASE HELP! For the sake of our children!!!
Thank you so much for sharing this story about Gretchen. We were friends in high school and I remember her as a wonderful spirit. I am grateful to have been given this glimpse of her life and some understanding of her suffering. It is inspiring to me as a "closet artist", to hear of her unwavering authenticity and commitment to her art. Even more inspiring though is her relentless struggle to heal herself. As a therapist, I am so sorry for the failings of our field to respond, over and over, to her cries for help. So sad and tragic.
All I know is for many years before this occurred papa roger had dedicated his life to god. And had been doing right to everyone that he had known. Even his children. And the talks that he had given me before he passed has helped lead me to begin a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. I have no doubt to where he went. And I have no doubt that I will be seeing him again one day!
As a recovering alcoholic myself, I thank you for your article. I find it sad that one person's comments were so negative. You have every right to tell your story to anyone you wish and not all of us who attend AA feel the need to hide our disease or the ways we found help in dealing with it.
I tell anyone who asks about that part of me and it has set me free. I never reveal others I know or see at meetings; each person needs to choose about their anonymity for themselves.
The awful stigma of addiction keeps thousands sick, however, so I feel it is PAST time for people to be open, honest, and real about this DISEASE that kills.
Rates are dangerous creatures, I will think this should be one of the priorities, in society today that maybe address.they spread diseases that cause death, bacterial and viral harmful to society.do you known what happening to our drinking water sewer? They are populated by these rates.I can see why Underwood is frustrated with those creatures, they are producing fast and spreading theirs diseases to human.job creation is the ways to go and republicans should think about what causing life not rejecting budget.
Thank you for sharing. This is great information. How much do contemporary abstract painter usually cost?
Humans have been drawn to mind altering substances since the beginning of time. Do you actually believe that will ever change ? He might be wearing tennis shoes and a plaid suit and live in abandoned buildings or wearing ostrich skin boots and Armani suit on his way to the White House.
Thanks for all the comments remembering the places I was, too. Does anyone have and wil post memories of Alias Gallery? First upstairs on the corner of Piedmont/Monroe and later at TULA.
I'm an artist alumn.

My sister was locked up with Felicia a year after she'd been arrested. My sister asked her why did you do this? and her response was, the devil had taken over her body, soul, and mind. I do believe that the devil can take over one's chain of thoughts in a second. She also told my sister she didn't want to her anyone, and that was not her intensions. She was definitely under pressure, by Mike Berry who definitely deserves more than anyone to be imprisoned. I don't think Mike Berry has any type of relationship with there son. In listening to this story, I seen a scared young lady who had no sense of directions. It's so unfortunately those guys lifes were lost to something so sensless. My thoughts and prayers will always be with there families.

I'm afraid James "Jimmy" Barron has failed to grow up. He's still doing that old bit about running cyclist off the road that they were so successful for while at 99x-crement.
I am Cathie, Mrs. Steve Tucker. I want to thank Scott Henry for doing this story, it needed to be told. I would also like to thank all of you who recognize and deeply feel the injustice that was done. But we all have a responsibility, as Americans, to right the wrongs of this country with our votes. Be informed, seek answers, stand up for your - our - rights when necessary. To the 'preppers', it will take a lot more than the war on drugs to start a revolution. To the ignorant like 'Cage', what can I say? I mean, really? And to all, I ask that we judge not lest we be judged. There are so many people out there with undeserved prison records. Good, honest people. We've been lucky, Steve has been lucky. God bless America, and may we all find peace when we lay our heads down to sleep each and every night.
Reading these articles makes me so mad. There full of so many lies. My dad was there, he was a hostage too and I've heard first hand what really happened without the governments cover ups. The one inmate who they admitted died was killed directly in front of my dad. When my dad asked an officer after they were released how many had died he replied none. My dad then replied "Well I know of at least one because these are his brains all over my shirt." He still wonders how many actually died. He heard stories from inmates while being detained that some bodies were being burned. Who knows if this is true, but he still wonders. There were so many cover ups and things people will never know unless they can talk to those who actually lived through it. I just wish people knew the actual truth instead of just what the media is allowed to tell them.
This is complete misjustice.
I'm reading this story 4 years after it was written. The Hotel is closed now and CL has reported that it's been sold to a developer. The fate of the Lounge is currently unknown. I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed this article. I find history extremely interesting. The accounts of your stay at this historic hotel was like walking into the past with you. I regret that I never have been inside the Hotel. To ride in the elevator car would have been a treat. I would love to read more article about historic places and their place in modern Atlanta. Excellent journalism I look forward to future articles of this nature.
What was the name of the club on N. Decatur Rd? It was in the same shopping center where Rainbow Grocery is now and I believe was then. I saw some great bands there. REM on New Years 1983. I became a fan for life. Just a huge room with a bar at one end or two and a stage. I remember I wore a t-shirt that was a big round Quaalude. I loved it. Got all kinds of attention.
LOL. Baby and the Pacifiers at the Bistro. 688 and everyone on the planet. Margaritaville so we could get drunk cheap and head up the street. The greatest juke box ever too.
This was really entertaining... Club life in Atlanta has not been the same since they closed the Buckhead club/bar district.
