Are you a photographer, either amateur or professional, who would be willing to donate your services during Fall Fest weekend this year (October 23-24)? If so, we want to talk to you. The job requirements are simple: walk around the park with your camera taking photos, and then provide high res copies of them to us. We can't pay you, but we'll give you a t-shirt and loads of gratitude. Contact Kate if interested.
Learned this from the Candler Park Market page on good ole Facebook:
Don't forget to mark your calendars for Saturday the 10th. We'll be having our annual customer appreciation day from 12 noon until 4pm. We'll have free food, drinks, door prizes and lots of samples from local vendors. Don't miss the fun!
From the AJC:
In part ceremony, part promotion, Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed officially removed the “interim” from George Turner’s title by naming him the new Atlanta Police Chief.
But the interim tag was crucial in Reed’s decision. The mayor said that since he appointed Turner to temporarily hold the office in January, the performance and morale of the police department has been markedly improved.
Overall crime is down 14 percent and violent crimes are down 22.7 percent over the last six months, Reed said.
Hi all, just got some revised dates from Mark Clement for the upcoming Candler Park movies in the park. Please update your calendars accordingly so you don't miss the fun.

Circulated via email from a resident on Nelms:
On Friday evening at approximately 1 am, a young woman was held at gunpoint by five teenage African American males. The assailants pointed two guns at her and demanded money. When she stated she had none, they told her to get out of her car and then they jumped in and drove away.
The police were called and a report was filed, but as of today we have not heard if progress in finding them has been made.
We can only assume that they were waiting for anyone to pull up anywhere on the street to steal from.
