Rescheduled Fireworks

The city of Chamblee has rescheduled its 4th of July fireworks extravaganza for tomorrow night (Saturday night) at 7:30 at Keswick Park.  The show is scheduled to begin shortly after dark, about 9:15 p.m. If it rains Saturday, they’ll try again Sunday.  There is no charge to watch the fireworks, however food vendors will be on site.  Folks tell me it is one of the best fireworks displays in the Atlanta area.

Dunwoody Resident Can't Get Enough

A good article in this week's Dunwoody Reporter on city resident and Sandy Springs police major David Bertrand, who also happens to be the All Saints traffic officer every Sunday.

David Bertrand admits there are times when his exercise program can seem, well, a little bit nuts.

Like when he’s in training. He doesn’t have time to run the distances he should, so he wears a 65-pound, lead-filled vest and carries a Goodyear tire across his shoulders to make his training runs around Dunwoody harder.
“It looks odd,” Bertrand admitted. “People think I’m very weird carrying that tire.”
Some drivers have even stopped and asked if he needs a ride to the nearest gas station to get his flat fixed.
