"People here generally like to hop in their over-sized vehicles and drive where they want to go when they want to go, even if it means there's a strong possibility of sitting in traffic for hours."
Area voters spoke loud and clear in Tuesday's election, with over 70 percent of the voters soundly voting NO on the penny sales tax increase to support area public transportation initiatives. Whether you were on the yes or no side of the issue, what we can all agree on is that Atlanta area traffic is nightmarish, one of the worst in the nation, and is unacceptable to the vast majority of drivers. However, the bottom line is that building new infrastructure doesn't necessarily guarantee people would choose to use public transportation as a means to get from point A to point B anyway. We're in the South after all, in a city deep seeded in tradition and in general, with a population resistance to change. And unfortunately, people here …

Sunday, July 17, 2011
When professional tennis comes to Peachtree Corners today, it'll bring a decidedly local flavor. Not only were Georgia Tech’s Guillermo Gomez and University of Georgia’s Wil Spencer granted wild card entry into this weekend's Atlanta Tennis Championships at the Racquet Club of the South, so was Kennesaw native Robby Ginepri in a field whose seven Americans include defending champion Mardy Fish and former UGA star and 2010 finalist John Isner. The best known name locally might be Ginepri, a 2005 U.S. Open semifinalist who reached the second round of last year's Atlanta Championships against Fish. “I’m so thankful to be back playing tennis and for the opportunity to play in front of my hometown fans in Atlanta,” Ginepri said. “It’s a great …
