Drowning In Georgia: It Doesn’t Look Like You Think

ATLANTA, GA — As Atlanta area residents head to the water this weekend — whether it’s a local pool, lake, or river — it’s important to recognize the signs of drowning, which may not be what you think. More than 3,700 Americans drowned in 2017, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics, more than 700 of them under the age of 14. In Georgia, the drowning death rate was slightly more than 1 per 100,000 residents, or 1.3.

About 10 people drown every day in the United States, where drowning is the fifth-leading cause of unintentional injury death, according to the CDC...

The Big Disconnect: What happened to Google Fiber in Atlanta?

After three years of stalled promises, Atlanta is fed up. Will we ever get Google’s high-speed internet?

Illustration by Wes L Cockx

What happened to Google Fiber in Atlanta?

It’s been more than three years since Google Fiber frenzy took hold of the Atlanta area. You might still have the T-shirt.

From Alpharetta to Avondale Estates, College Park to Decatur, folks fed up with chronically unreliable internet connections, abysmal customer service, and expensive monthly bills lapped up Google Fiber’s promise to change all that. And there was an altruistic component, too: Google Fiber would help close the digital divide in part by extending discounted or free high-speed internet to low-income residents.

If smiling politicians were a barometer, the January 2015 press conference to trumpet Google...

Georgia Weather Forecast: Spring Has Sprung (With Some Showers)

ATLANTA, GA — It doesn’t get much more "springtime in Georgia" than this weekend’s forecast, folks.

Warm temperatures, but not blazing hot. Mostly sunny, but with a chance of a few showers. When we’re sweltering in 100-degree summer heat and humidity, or bunkered down during "snowpocalypse" winter days, this is the weather we dream about.

After a high of 85 on Friday, we’re looking at things getting a shade cooler, with a high of 82 on Saturday and 81 on Sunday. And it will be mostly sunny, although a chance of showers rolls in on Saturday at about 4 p.m. and runs all the way through 2 a.m. or so.

Buckhead’s PATH400 trail welcomes a mural series with purpose

Livable Buckhead

Having a bad day? Week? All of 2018?

Perhaps a visit to the Beltline’s Buckhead cousin is in order.

Along the multi-use PATH400 trail, work has wrapped on a temporary art series designed to lend a little emotional and mental restoration beyond what normally happens when people and nature meet.

Livable Buckhead has teamed with Kaiser Permanente to tap local artists for five 25-foot chalkwork murals that stress mental wellness along the sound wall between PATH400 and the highway for which it’s named.

Participants from the Georgia Chalk Artists Guild—Chelsey Austin, Catherine Bozone, Katie Bush, Meg Mitchell, and Jessi Queen—rendered meaningful messages such as “It’s Okay To Not Be Okay” and “What We Think We Become” for the project.

The works will be displayed between Old...
