Re: “ATLwood: Famous people at a theme park

Steven and Lauren live in Inman Park at one of the apartment complexes. They were my neighbors pretty much. Two other cast members lived there also.

Re: “Lessons learned — and observations — from the Atlanta Beltline's Eastside Trail

Joe is correct on the lighter/darker finish of the Beltline trail, they announced that a while back and I even believe it was mentioned in a past CL article. I also agree with Joe on the lines...let's not throw some cheap paint on there to "help" direct ppl. Some still won't follow that even though "slow to the right" is a common theme in society. Example - ppl standing next to each other not letting you pass while on the MARTA escalator.

Re: “Beltline's Eastside Trail now features innovative, smart growth-y 'no trespassing' signs

Slower and atl native,

I live over by the Highland Bridge where they were tearing up the concrete yesterday and I asked one of the workers/contractors why they were doing that. He told me, "we have some very picky people over here and they weren't happy with the way it looked, I guess." So atl native was right on with his comment about it being replaced due to being subpar.

Also, while walking my dog under that bridge daily, I noticed that it seemed to have drainage issues along the side where the wall banks up. It would stay wet for days in that little gully for days after a storm and I'm wondering if that would cause problems in the future, due to water building up under the slab over time. Maybe that's why they tore it up. That's just my thoughts though.

Re: “Atlanta transit: Envisioning our future

I agree with this article 100% as it represents my view on the T-SPLOST wholeheartedly. This project list might not be the best, but it's leaps and bounds better than anything we've had going on in the past here in Atlanta. I support the Sierra Club most of the time, but voting it down because there isn't enough transit is a little fanatical. I think they need to stop and try to remember what city and state this is...there is no way in h*ll a future list would ever have more transit based projects than it has now. In addition, voting it down to revisit the list is just another delay and another step down the latter for Atlanta. The cost of materials/construction will continue to rise and other cities will continue to pass Atlanta by. The law says it can be revisited in 2 years, but they'd be lucky to do it in 4.

Re: “Adam Yauch of the Beastie Boys has died

RIP Adam Yauch (MCA).

Many memories filled with Beastie Boys' music, I feel their songs were a soundtrack to my life from around 13 to early 20's. My first accident was in my Mom's Buick while I was trying to find a song on my "Ill Communication" tape...sorry, ma, had to find my jam.

The world will miss you and Nathaniel Hornblower.

Re: “First Draft with Kevin Ward, Midtown Art Cinema's general manager

This is the only place in Atlanta I'll go see a movie. It seems to be the last place where the customers seem to be human...ppl aren't answering phones & talking during the film, and there aren't babies crying during the 11o'clock showtime. Plus, the beer selection is great!

Re: “MARTA Braves shuttle returns to save some suburbanites, some of whom couldn't care less about transit system, cash and time

Girl with a big left foot nailed it... I'm so tired of reading articles in the Marietta Daily Journal that bash MARTA/transit. If you want to live a rural lifestyle, than move to South GA. Metro will never be what it once was, it's growing, changing, evolving - live with it.
