First Slice: 4/23/12: Pick up your trash, Orange Crushers!

Posted By on Mon, Apr 23, 2012 at 8:42 AM

1. The annual Orange Crush beach festival on Tybee Island turned into a Sunday clean-up for residents and student volunteers. Police tell irked locals they can't do much about the litter or the crowds at the gathering of college students, which organizes by social media and word of mouth and doesn't require a permit.

2. An Atlanta lawyer who lives in Summerhill says the Atlanta Public Schools' new attendance zones might be unconstitutional. He and other parents want APS board members to reconsider sending the neighborhood's children to D.H. Stanton Elementary.

3. Private detention centers to house undocumented immigrants are not the types of economic development projects that will catapult your sleepy rural town into the 21st century.

4. David Pendered says metro Atlanta shouldn't count on the feds to help pay for some of the new road and transit projects that could be funded by a 1-percent sales tax.
