Re: “Habitat for Humanity's plan for Sylvan Hills draws neighborhood's ire

In their defense, there is already plenty of affordable housing in Sylvan Hills and the surrounding area. Drive around and see for yourself.
And lots and lots of empty homes in a well built, post WWII neighborhood.
Most of the houses there are brick and some have been empty for many years.
Flooding the market with 40+ lower cost houses would be detrimental to those residents who have stuck it out and put in the sweat equity to rehab their neighborhood.
I can understand their apprehension.

Re: “APD to rethink approach, tactics to stop urban dirt bike and A.T.V. riders

Sometimes in a free country, a little freedom gets out, even when it is against the rules. I hope the riders stay safe and enjoy their fun. Fun never lasts long.

Re: “GPB to WABE: 'We are responding to the high demand we have heard for years'

"We are also very proud of the relationships GPB enjoys with colleges and universities across Georgia - -The University of Georgia, Georgia Institute of Technology, Mercer University, Armstrong Atlantic State University, Georgia Regents University, Chattahoochee Technical College, The University of West Georgia, and now Georgia State University. Each of GPB's college and university relationships is different from the other; however, each is formed with the intent to provide new learning environments for students."

Is that a list of colleges that GPB has stolen radio stations from the student bodies? I know they did the same at West Ga.

Re: “WRAS deal disregards history and GSU students

The same takeover was done at WWGC -FM91 in Carrollton in the early 90's. The Dept head was an old Public Radio man and was not fond of the music. First they changed to format from alternative to Top 40. But they were really not happy still having three Rap shows. Then the station went GPB and they got rid of the huge music library. Sold it and gave it away.
The student body and WWGC staffers fought it, but it was a done deal. We suspected that the dept head or someone in charge was getting kickbacks or some type of finder's fee from the deal. GPB wanted to expand their broadcast range. I believe this is their modus operandi.
Student run radio is a learning tool, just like the Biology lab or the Chemistry lab. Taking that away from them is a step backward for their learning experience. Student run radio should be run and programmed by the students. Good luck, WRAS.
