They’re back! Our Bronco was broken into this weekend- they took 2 pocket knives and a blue tooth speaker. Also, the car of our house guest was broken into late Sunday/early Monday. Both cars were parked in our driveway.
Address: East Lake Road near Ponce – Elena Braswell
Lost Dog in Vicinity of RR Crossing on East Lake Rd.
We haven’t seen our black French Bulldog, Violet, since last night (8/18). If you have seen her, please call 404-543-4034 or email email@example.com.
Just wanted to let folks know that the car snoopers are back at it. Our two cars were both rifled through last night/this morning. We both leave them unlocked and with nothing of value inside, so no damage or loss to report, but we all need reminding from time to time. I’ll be keeping my eyes peeled for suspicious persons.

OTF MEETING SCHEDULE
Nearly two years ago, the topic of “Cityhood” was first discussed at a Druid Hills Civic Association (DHCA) meeting. The residents of some DeKalb County neighborhoods to our north were forming initiatives to create new cities. We weren’t certain how Druid Hills would be affected but agreed that we should keep an eye on it because part of our neighborhood was included in one of the proposed maps.
I am writing to you now because Cityhood has emerged as the most profound issue our neighborhood has faced since the Presidential Parkway in the 1980s. As new cities form around us, the portion of Druid Hills in unincorporated DeKalb County could become isolated and face higher taxes and a disproportionately lower share of HOST funds because we will be left to fund mandated County services. If the new North DeKalb cities keep tax money for their own local governments, there will be less revenue for the rest of the county.
For those of you not following this serious issue, let me point out that two words – “cityhood” and “municipalization” — are being used to describe local governments created to handle some services now provided and controlled by DeKalb County. Leaders of these initiatives believe that many issues can be better provided at a local level. Our State Constitution mandates that certain services be provided by every county in the state, such as courts, jails, schools, and roads. Even DeKalb County’s Interim CEO Lee May has supported incorporating the entire county as a way to provide better government services. Read more of this post
The DCSD staff will be conducting a meeting to provide the Fernbank community with an update on the progress of the new school construction project next Thursday August 7, from 4:00 to 6:00 (as necessary), at the Fernbank Science Center.
