Tony Barnhart at St.Luke's; Roundabouts

The city of Dunwoody is blessed to have some amazing churches, as well as amazing cooperation between the churches. I am a member of All Saints, but always feel just as welcomed at Dunwoody Methodist, Dunwoody Baptist, etc.

Saturday morning I was at St. Luke's for breakfast and to listen to my good friend Tony Barnhart talk college football. Tony was a longtime writer for the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. He now divides his time blogging for the paper, hosting his own show on CBS College Sports Network, co-hosting Talkin' Football on CSS (Comcast) and appearing on CBS Sports' Saturday coverage of college football. A few years back when I was in television full-time, I co-hosted a college football show with Tony. It truly was a pleasure getting to know him.

Back to Saturday's breakfast. No real surprise that Tony is picking Alabama to win the SEC West and Florida to win the SEC East. He thinks Alabama will meet Ohio St. in the national championship game. As for Georgia and Georgia Tech, Tony feels that each will have a better season than many of the preseason publications predict. Let's hope that's the case (hey, I may be a Longhorn, but I still pull for the locals. When Georgia and Georgia Tech do well, it makes for a much more entertaining football season).

Will Dunwoody Become a City of Roundabouts?

Interesting article on Councilman John Heneghan's blogsite about "roundabout" intersections and the possibility of Dunwoody incorporating them to help with traffic flow. Click here to read. I like the concept, as well as thinking outside the box. If Dunwoody hopes to solve traffic issues without widening roads, thinking outside the box is critical.

Bob,

You seem to have a big Asian following, based on the comments here.

I think Blogger Bob must have handled the lease agreements for the Chinese immigrants flooding the Dunwoody Health, Wellness, and Massage parlors. These are congratulatory notes, for sure.

Perhaps Blogger Bob could explain the mysterious disappearance of the happpy ending attributed to Dunwoody code enforcement??
