Springfield Construction Update; Men's Night with The Crier's Dick Williams

The new construction at 4899 Springfield Dr. is well underway (elevation sketch above). The footings and foundation have been poured, and framing is scheduled to start next week. Builder/owner Ken Mooney tells me the 4-bedroom, 3-1/2 bath home will have 3,750 heated square feet on the main two levels, with 1,850 square feet in the basement. The home will be Energy Star-rated, and soon will be listed for $749,000. Ken has two similar homes in the Oak Grove area that are nearing completion - if a prospective buyer wants to view, first hand, the level of finishes (floor plans below).

Crier Editor Speaks at Men's Club
I was at the All Saints Men's Club dinner on Monday evening to listen to featured speaker Dick Williams, editor of The Crier, Dunwoody's neighborhood newspaper for over 30 years (Dick has owned the paper since 1996). Dick took a few moments to give me grief about my Longhorns two-game losing streak, but spent most of the night talking politics - his favorite subject. If you've never met Dick, it doesn't take long to realize he's as conservative as they come. On the national scene, Dick predicted the Republicans will pick up at least 50 seats to take control of the US House, and said the GOP will come close to gaining control of the Senate as well. For more of Dick's political views, watch The Georgia Gang on WAGA-Fox 5, every Sunday morning (of course you can also hear Dick sing with the church choir every Sunday at the 10:30 Mass at All Saints).
