Interstate 20: Atlanta's income divider?

Posted: 04 Nov 2013 06:39 PM PST

When you first move to Atlanta, everyone jokes not to live south of Interstate 20, an East-West interstate that bisects the city. At least that's what I remember being told when I first moved her five years ago.

 

Locals are right that some of the most affluent areas, like Buckhead, Midtown and Inman Park, are north of the interstate. And it's true that some of the more blighted neighborhoods are in the southwest sector, places like Mechanicsville and Pittsburgh. An uptick in crime there this year hasn't helped the area's reputation. And, the two neighborhoods even wound up on a 2010 list of the "Top 25 most dangerous neighborhoods" in the country. http://www.dailyfinance.com/2010/10/04/25-most-dangerous-neighborhoods-2010/

 

The local wisdom of staying north of I-20 stuck with me until earlier this year, when I moved to the wrong side of the dreaded barrier.

 

I live in a transitional neighborhood nestled under the curve of I-20, called East Atlanta. The streets are lined with a mix of homes, from flipped models and renovated bungalows to neglected properties and foreclosures. But what's more interesting is that when I walk around the neighborhood, 9 out of 10 people of all walks of life will say hi to me. We're a neat cross-section of people, and I love it.

 

While the interstate divides the city, it sure photographs well, as shown above. This is the bridge at Moreland Avenue, shot an hour before sunset today. Doesn't look so menacing, does it?

Dad and Me

Posted: 04 Nov 2013 11:37 AM PST

My father was stationed on the battleship Pennsylvania on Dec 7, 1941. He never talked about it. I was stationed on NAVFAC Eleuthera Bahamas from 1969 to 1971 and served as a communications watch supervisor. Our mission, since declassified, was to track Soviet subs as they patrolled our coast just miles offshore. We knew that if things went badly our country would experience an unprecedented holocaust. I couldn't talk about my mission because it was top secret at the time. My father died not knowing my secrets or me knowing his. What I would like you to know about military service is that many men and women can't talk about their experiences either because it is classified or because it is to horrific to relive.

Operation Just Cause

Posted: 04 Nov 2013 11:05 AM PST

My name is Mark Patterson and I served a total of 23 years in the Military both active and National Guard, Army and Air Force. I was deployed to Panama for Operation Just Cause when I was 18 as a Military Police Officer. I also served in Qatar during Operation Enduring Freedom. I have deployed to several counties and enjoyed every minute I was in the military. One thing that I want you to know about the military would be that the America's best and brightest serve their country with pride every day. Our military trains us to be good soldiers but it also trains us to be Great Citizens. Joining the Military transformed me and I have never regretted serving!

This Veterans Day

Posted: 04 Nov 2013 11:03 AM PST

This Veterans Day, we'd like to honor those who have served by giving them a space to share their stories. So if you're a veteran, we want to hear about your experience. The catch? You must do it by completing this single sentence:

My name is Larry A, I served in the _Vietnam War in the years _1968 69_, and the one thing I want you to know about military service is it taught me I am responsible for my decisions and how they impact the people around me, good and bad ones. Stand tall, make good decisions and never, ever dishonor your country.

For Love of Country!

Posted: 04 Nov 2013 10:18 AM PST

My name is 1SG Karl Morneau, RET, I served in Operation Iraqi Freedom 06-07, and the one thing I want you to know about military service is that we dont do it for ourselves. We do it for our Soldiers! We serve because we love our country! Military service is not for everyone. It's for that 1% who believe in this country and are willing to give the ultimate sacrifice to defend its principles. To all my Brothers and Sisters, Happy Veterans Day! Thank you for your Service!

Keeping FAMILY in Thanksgiving!

Posted: 04 Nov 2013 09:04 AM PST

Isn't Thanksgiving all about FAMILY? It was at one time, only about that.. Way before any "Black Friday Sale", families were spending this time together. It is sad to see that now businesses and corporations are changing that.

 

Why can't we keep FAMILY in Thanksgiving?

Colorado flooding seven weeks later

Posted: 03 Nov 2013 01:22 PM PST

I went back into Evans, Co.today just a short drive from where I live, seven weeks after the destruction wrought by the Platte River I spoke with a woman who's mobile home was destroyed as well as her friends home who was a Vietnam Veteran. He (the Vet) told me afterwards his home was ransacked and 10 thousand worth of tools were stolen as well as camera equipt. 953 children lived in this area most of whom are still in temporary housing, hotels, or relatives homes.
