Re: “AIU faces class-action lawsuit

I want to know more about the lawsuit as well. I was promised help getting a job in my field when I graduated and the only help I got required me to move my family to another state, sell my home, and hope for the best.
Is anyone on this lawsuit having to pay $400+ to be a part of this lawsuit? I have gotten a couple calls trying to get my loans forgiven but was told that I need to research it, as that might be a scam.

The drill should be called Andrew Jones, and the hole called the Gold Club.

I thought Kasim Ream was the name of Arthur's Johnson.

Re: “First Slice 6/30/16: Maybe Atlanta drivers suck because most of y'all ain't from Atlanta?

I see bad driving everywhere... as for murder in Atlanta we have a gang problem in the city and no one wants to address the issue... if you live in Cobb County what did you expect. You all had to find out last minute they were building a stadium near you. You shouldn't be surprised about the no parking o private property thing... haha I live in Gwinnett we have our own set of issues.

Typical Atlanta City action - much ado about nothing. Strain at a gnat and swallow a camel.
But if you must give it a name, let it be His Dishonor.

Re: “Atlanta's other transportation question this year: a higher sales tax to build out Beltline trails, streetscapes, and more

If anyone ever proposes any additional funding for Atlanta, I have 2 simple responses for them:
100 million dollar streetcar to nowhere anyone wants to ride it.
25 million dollar swimming pool in a poverty riddled part of the city.
(somehow the latter is even more absurd than the former)

Sorry but any new funding referendums should be DOA until we clean out City Hall.

I probably would agree if most of the idiotic stunts and driving tactics that cause accidents are from people who ARE from Atlanta. & I work in claims.

Re: “First Slice 6/30/16: Maybe Atlanta drivers suck because most of y'all ain't from Atlanta?

The worst driving that I have encountered in this country has been in the Washington DC/Baltimore corridor. The road rage all those government employees have is something else.

Re: “First Slice 7/1/16: Tests show more than a dozen Atlanta schools with elevated lead levels

Carstarphen has tried harder than Erroll Davis; proof? Kasim Reed hates her guts and stone walls her at every turn if he possibly can.

Is the APS admin machine the same? Oh yeah, that, fer sure... you can't fire ALL of them, no matter how badly it needs to be done...

Re: “Here's what the inside of O4W's new natatorium will probably look like

It is dishearting that there are those who dislike the post that is two above this one, concerning Kasim and his swimming efforts.

One has to understand that enormous amounts of tax dollars are collected and Arthur Blank and the Chamber have a very stressful job deciding how are tax dollars are spent.

As mayor, Kasim provides much needed stress relief with his thrice weekly nude swims for the bemusement of Arthur and the Chamber, which allows them to spend our dollars as wisely as possible.

Why someone would disparage Kasim Reed, and his valuable contribution to Arthur and the Chamber is most disappointing. Nude bemusement swimming to curry favor is an art form and Kasim Reed is due the credit he deserves for providing this valuable service.

Indeed, Kasim has given exemplary service to Arthur and the Chamber; let's honor that please.

Re: “Woodruff Park chess court shut down 'until further notice'

The issue is not the number of homeless at Woodruff Park but rather the lack of activities for the non-homeless in that same area. Let's face it: the Five Points MARTA station is one of the most horrible looking spots in the entire city and Peachtree Street leading to Underground has absolutely nothing going on there. The areas surrounding Woodruff Park just don't have enough going on. On weekends, Fairlie Poplar shuts down. What we need more of is restaurants and bars to stay open on the weekends and nights. We need more legitimate businesses that are bringing in money (the Walgreens is a step in the right direction) rather than shady pawn shops that abound in Five Points. More than anything, what the neighborhood needs is a gutsy chef who is willing to pick a really horrible location and create an amazing restaurant in the way that Kevin Rathbun took on Krog Street. 15 years ago, Krog Street was one of the roughest neighborhoods in Atlanta and today it's a stunning example of urban restoration. Same thing with Bacchanalia --- 20 years back, Westside was just an amalgam of old warehouses and today it's a thriving neighborhood. Five Points needs a visionary chef or several chefs who will bring money to the neighborhood; frankly, it's the perfect place for great restaurants because the Ritz Carlton and all the high end hotels in Downtown are just a few blocks away.
