In every city there are a handful of visionaries who know how to shake things up and make things happen. These are folks who go way beyond the daily obligations of work and home to change our city for the better. And in doing so, they make our communities better for all of us, whether its improving the environment or putting the life in our nightlife. Volunteers helping out evacuees from Katrina; Art in Freedom Park proponent Evan Levy; Beltine architect Ryan Gravel; party promoter J. Carter -- these are just a few of the Atlantans Creative Loafing has singled out for their efforts to improve the quality of our lives. In our book, they're Amazing ATLiens.
