Flight attendant recalls Vietnam War R&R service

In 1968, international jet travel was still a glamorous adventure, and Joan Policastro signed on as a Pan American World Airways flight attendant to get her taste of it.

Art center says it may have to add classrooms outside Dunwoody

Will everything be OK at the Spruill Center for the Arts? Only with a better deal, says its director.

But the nonprofit organization that owns it, Spruill Center for the Arts, says it’s squeezed for space and might have to expand outside Dunwoody without a better deal from the city for classroom space.

What was the terrible accident that held up Mt. Vernon Highway so badly today. I saw a helicopter also circling. I had to stop at Chick fil a, couldn't stand not moving in traffic at all and wasting gas, the car having to work so hard for nothing. Where did it happen. Thanks!
