State Rep. Tom Taylor (R-Dunwoody) is ready to try once again to convince his fellow legislators that now is the time to put a constitutional amendment on the ballot to create independent school systems for Dunwoody and other cities throughout the state. But coming on the heels of the sound defeat at the polls of Gov. Nathan Deal’s Opportunity School District legislation, trying any kind of education reform is sure to be a tough battle, he acknowledges. “This is not a partisan issue, this is a local issue,” Taylor said. “The general consensus in the community is this is a priority. This is not a Dunwoody bill per se, but it is what’s driving it. But we need to realize this is not about a Dunwoody school system. This has to be a statewide effort.” Taylor first introduced the legislation, House Resolution 4, in 2013 after See DEKALB on page 14

The city of Dunwoody’s official website was hacked Thanksgiving Day, but no breach of security was made, according to the city spokesperson. A hacker by the name of “Jack Sparrow,” who claims to be part of a Turkish group, took responsibility for the hack on Twitter. The city’s website was down for several hours and images of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan and a Turkish flag set against a black background were visible on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25. The hacker also used another image on the website that stated, in part, “The city of Dunwoody website is currently offline for some Turkey Day maintenance.” The website was restored late Nov. 26. “We first noticed [the hack] on Thanksgiving Day. We worked to restore the site and about 12 hours later it was hacked again,” said Bob Mullen, city spokesperson. “There has not been a loss of data or records.” The same hacker targeted another municipal government this year in Killeen, Texas, where the military base Fort Hood is located. That city’s website was hacked twice.

The Georgia Supreme Court threw out the conviction of former DeKalb CEO Burrell Ellis in an opinion issued Nov. 30, ruling Ellis did not receive a fair trial. Ellis was convicted in July 2015 of perjury and attempting to extort a campaign contribution from a county vendor. He was sentenced to 18 months in prison. Gov. Nathan Deal suspended Ellis from the county CEO position and Lee May took over as Interim CEO. In the 30-page opinion, the state Supreme Court states, “We find that the evidence presented at trial was sufficient to enable a rational trier of fact to find Ellis guilty of the two charges upon which he was ultimately convicted – one count of perjury and one count of attempt to commit theft by extortion – beyond a reasonable doubt.” Although the state Supreme Court agreed with the trial court that Ellis’ constitutional rights to due process and equal protection were not violated, “we must nevertheless reverse Ellis’ convictions based on certain evidentiary errors that occurred at his trial. Accordingly, we affirm in part and reverse in part to allow for a retrial on the charges of criminal attempt to commit theft by extortion and perjury,’” the opinion states. Ellis served eight months of his sentence and was reSPECIAL Burrell Ellis leased in March. The DeKalb DA’s office issued a statement to the decision: “While we respect the decision of the Georgia Supreme Court, we are obviously disappointed. The case has been remanded back to the DeKalb County Superior Court for retrial, however the decision to try the case again will rest with the incoming district attorney [Sherry Boston]. We appreciate that the court noted that there was sufficient evidence to support convictions for perjury and criminal attempt to commit theft by extortion. Our office is assessing whether or not to file a motion for reconsideration.”

U.S. Rep. Price nominated to Trump’s cabinet; local pols may run for seat BY JOHN RUCH johnruch@reporternewspapers.net

U.S. Rep. Tom Price’s nomination as president-elect Donald Trump’s secretary of Health and Human Services set off a potential string of political dominoes to replace him. For the congressman, it’s a long-awaited to chance to replace Obamacare, a topic he frequently discusses in local Rotary Club and Chamber of Commerce meetings. For his Sixth District — which includes parts of Brookhaven, Dunwoody and Sandy Springs — it’s the beginning of a political shake-up as incumbent state legislators appear likely to run for his seat. State Sen. Judson Hill (R-Marietta), who represents District 32, which includes a part of Sandy Springs, announced a run Nov. 30. Two Democrats, Joshua McLaurin and Ron Slotin, announced campaigns. Slotin, a Sandy Springs resident, was a state senator in the 1990s and currently works in marketing for the Sandy Springs-based staffing firm BrightWell Talent Solutions. He said he’s running to “improve the quality of life for people in the district,” including traffic, schools and environmental protection. McLaurin could not be reached for comment. Among other locals cited as potential contenders are state Sen. John Albers (R-Roswell) and Bruce LeVell, a prominent Trump campaign operative from Dunwoody, who said they’re open to running. Price, a Roswell Republican, has held the Sixth Congressional District seat since 2005. He’s a medical doctor and a strong critic of the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, and its health insurance mandates and marketplace. His demands for an Obamacare replacement appear to be a main factor in Trump’s decision to nominate him to the health cabinet position. In a candidate statement to Reporter Newspapers for his re-election campaign this fall, Price said, “We see examples of Obamacare failing the American people every day. Premiums and deductibles going through the roof. Patients losing their doctors. Millions getting insurance cancellation notices in the mail. That’s why we’ve developed an alternative to Obamacare and it’s called a Better Way for Health Care.” In a Nov. 29 written statement, Price said he was “humbled” by Trump’s nomination and took aim at Obamacare. “I am humbled by the incredible challenges that lay ahead and enthusiastic for the opportunity to be a part of solving them on behalf of the American people,” he said. “There is much work to be done to ensure we have a healthcare system that works for patients, families, and doctors; that leads the world in the cure and prevention of illness; and that is based on sensible rules to protect the well-being of the country while embracing its innovative spirit. “The citizens of Georgia’s Sixth Congressional District have given me the privilege

of representing them in Congress,” Price’s statement continued. “I am so proud and grateful to live in and work on behalf of such a wonderful community and hope to continue serving our fellow citizens in this new role.” Possible contenders Price’s nomination must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate and he has not yet resigned his post in Congress. Assuming those events happen, local political sources say a special election will be held as soon as March 21 to replace Price and any incumbents who leave other offices to run for his seat. Long lists of possible candidates have been floated by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution and GeorgiaPol. Among the locals mentioned with varying degrees of likelihood were Hill; Albers; Sandy Springs Mayor Rusty Paul; Sandy Springs City Councilmember Gabriel Sterling; state Attorney General Chris Carr, a Dunwoody resident; and LeVell, the owner of Dunwoody Diamonds U.S.A., who had a prominent role in Trump’s campaign as a diversity spokesperson. Hill was the first to announce a candidacy. He did so Nov. 30 in a written statement saying he is running to “continue the Price/Isakson/Gingrich record of principled conservative congressmen representing our district.”

“I am asking for the votes of the citizens considering this important decision.” of the Sixth Congressional District because LeVell, in a phone interview, did not I want to serve them as a conservative rerule out a run for Price’s seat or some other former,” said Hill, who has served in the type of government service. “I don’t know. state Senate since 2004. “I am running for I’m all over the grid,” he said. “I’m trying Congress with a record of standing firm on to serve, whatever President Trump wants principles of liberty, limited government me to do.” and fiscal responsibility.

Holiday recipes bring comfort and joy

Buckhead location Opening Spring 2017

For many of us, the holidays mean the return of special foods, those favorite family dishes that hold special meaning. They’re the once-a-year treats that help tie families together and offer reminders of those who came before. Without these dishes on the holiday table, the season just wouldn’t be the same. We asked our readers to share some of their favorite holiday treats. They replied with recipes that would bring grace to any holiday table. We thought you might want the main course -- whether it’s turkey, ham, lamb, beef or goose -- to represent your family’s tradition, so here are some other dishes you can use to expand your holiday table and to incorporate some of the traditions of your neighbors. -- Joe Earle

My father’s mother, Inez King Herron Findley, was born in South Carolina in 1902 and lived most of her adult life in Anderson, S.C. She always made this dressing for holiday meals. My father and I both love it, so when she became too old to cook, I took over making it for family gatherings. It’s very simple and has a great flavor.

FRIED OKRA

Submitted by Gabriel Sterling of Sandy Springs Getting young kids to eat vegetables can often be problematic. I was no different when I was young. I did have one that I loved, though. I was a big fan of popcorn. So to get me to eat a certain veggie, my grandmother used to tell me it was “green popcorn.” The vegetable that my grandmother tricked me into eating was fried okra.

Ingredients

Fried okra remains a staple side dish for football and holiday season in our family’s home. It is not difficult, but requires focus and a bit of cleanup.

• Okra

• canola or vegetable oil

In a bowl, mix:

In a separate bowl, mix:

• ½ cup cornmeal mix

• 1 large egg

• ½ cup all-purpose flour

• ½ cup milk

• 2 teaspoons cayenne pepper

• 1 teaspoon Tabasco sauce

• 1 teaspoon salt

Directions

• black pepper 1. Chop fresh okra (smaller pieces tend to be more tender) into about ½ inch pieces. Discard the caps (some fry those as well; I don’t). Place okra pieces in a bowl. 1. Pour canola oil or vegetable oil into a large frying pan (preferably cast iron). Use enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan with a layer ¼ -inch deep. 2. Set the stove on medium high. 3. After a few minutes, place a fork in the dredge and get a few drops on it and drop it in the oil. If it immediately beads to the top of the oil and begins to crackle, the oil is ready for frying. 4. Take a handful of the chopped okra and coat with the dredge. Transfer the dredged okra to the coating bowl. Fully coat and transfer to frying pan. 5.

RIVERWOOD INTERNATIONAL CHARTER SCHOOL CHOCOLATE PIE

Submitted by Allen Clark, food service director at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School I have been cooking since my parents bought a drive-in restaurant in Texas when I was 12 years old. It fed my passion for what I do and after a stint in the U.S. Navy, I went back to what I love. I was introduced to some great chefs in New York City and learned to cook. I have been an executive chef, restaurant owner and caterer. For 12 years, I cooked in the Braves Clubhouse for their players and coaches. I was working at Auburn University feeding their football team when I was offered the opportunity to interview at Mount Vernon Presbyterian School.

Ingredients

I took my honeymoon in Barbados and have many fond memories. The pie that I have shared is a tribute to the warmth of the Caribbean. It is sweet and spicy and perfect for a winter day with a bit of fresh whipped cream.

HOLIDAY RUM CAKE

From “the collection of Harry & Karen Meinzen McEnerny,” submitted by Karen Meinzen McEnerny of Sandy Springs.

Ingredients

Here is a family favorite. Harry was a terrific cook and always used recipes with a “twist.” We enjoyed this cake every season and also gave them away as gifts.

• 1 small package instant pudding: vanilla, coconut cream, or pistachio • 1 box yellow cake mix (plain yellow cake mix, not the kind with pudding already in it) • ½ cup light rum, Amaretto, bourbon or Grand Marnier • ½ cup water

Healthy Holidays!!

• ½ cup salad oil • 4 whole eggs • If desired, nuts, grated coconut, or raisins to taste

5 TIPS FOR OLDER ADULTS TO STAY ACTIVE AND ENGAGED DURING THE HOLIDAYS • Physical activity: Taking a walk after a hearty holiday meal is a good idea for those of any age, but it is particularly beneficial to seniors.

Glaze

• Healthy diet: Lean meats, such as turkey breast, serve as a healthy alternative to red meat. Other “super foods” for older adults that are beneficial in holiday meals are blueberries, flax seed, carrots, eggs, nuts and salmon.

• 1 cup sugar • 1/4 cup water

• Sharp minds: Designing holiday festivities around skill-based games such as Scrabble, checkers, backgammon or Wii, not only makes the event fun for party-goers, but it can also help seniors enhance cognitive function.

• 1 stick butter • 2 ounces liquor

Directions

• Social ties: While group activities in family homes or senior centers can be the focus of holiday celebrations, aging adults can also benefit from receiving daily calls or emails to help them feel connected to those they care about. • Calmness and Purpose: For some older adults, participating in a religious service helps them maintain a calm center and focus on their life purpose; others may prefer practices such as yoga or meditation.

Q:

What attracted you to teaching at

first?

A:

Having only had research assistantships in grad school, I often wondered how effective a teacher I could be. After working overseas for industry, I found the chance to have independent control over a classroom environment very appealing.

Exceptional

Educator

Q: Has the appeal changed? A: Not at all. I love what I do. Q:

What keeps you going year after

year?

A:

No two years are alike – as a teacher in an independent school I am able to “reinvent the wheel” every year and my courses (except for AP) will focus on different applications of a variety of topics. Westminster offers our students a 3-week Jan-Term class that allows teachers to try out new ideas. Last year I had our students build their own 3-D printers which they used to create original models of their architectural designs. This year I will be teaching students a course in creative welding.

My motto is exercise AND socialize.

IT’S ALL ABOUT HAVING FUN! Running 17 exercise classes each week, plus private sessions with people recovering from injury or surgery, would surely exhaust an average person. Of course, Mattie’s far from average. She’s a bundle of energy who loves to dance, works a variety of music into her classes, and joins Canterbury’s walking club whenever she can, especially when they’re training for the annual Peachtree Road 10k. She says residents and staff are so much like family that she’s always encouraging people to move here.

Mattie invites you to discover her Canterbury Court.

When it comes to the holidays, it’s all about family and friends. No contest. When we asked participants in our 1Q community survey recently what they thought was the most important way to celebrate the season, 78 percent said it was to spend time with family or friends. “Holidays are for a time of remembrance of what is important to you and cherishing what you have and what you have to give to others,” a 31-year-old Brookhaven woman said. Others agreed. “It’s the time I can spend with family and friends and celebrate our relationship,” a 26-year-old Atlanta woman said. And a 30-year-old Atlanta man thought warmly of the holiday season as the time for “going home to my mom’s house for old fashioneds and a warm fire.” No other choice offered in our cellphone survey of 200 adults who were spread across the communities served by Reporter Newspapers and Atlanta INtown even registered a percentage of replies in the double digits. Two other categories – “giving and getting presents” and “enjoying the music, celebrations and pageantry of the season” – placed second by each attracting 6 percent approval from the respondents. Just two respondents said they don’t celebrate the holidays at all.

“I love our family traditions. Gathering, lighting candles, eating latkes, showering grandchildren with love and presents.” --a 66-year-old Buckhead woman “I’m kind of disgusted by all the commercialism, and really try to downplay the gift-giving side of things and focus more on just feeling and expressing appreciation.” --a 50-year-old Sandy Springs man “Love and happiness!” --a 27-year-old Dunwoody woman “Sharing time with family and friends, making memories, tacky sweaters, sugar cookie decorating, and enjoying drinks by the fire!” --a 24-year-old Atlanta woman

1Q is an Atlanta-based startup that has developed a technology which sends questions and surveys to a cellphone via app or text message from businesses and organizations across the country. Respondents are paid 50 cents per answer, through PayPal, for sharing their opinions. Payments may also be donated directly to charity.

Here’s what some of those who responded to the survey had to say:

“Definitely going to see my family. My extended family lives in Minnesota. We all go to church, eat dinner together and open presents.” Lisa Cameron

“It’s nice to have everyone together. It doesn’t happen that often. ... We’re new to the area and working on establishing traditions, but we like to decorate the house [and] have a big dinner and a brunch for the kids after the gifts.” James Drago

City updated on LCI plans for Dunwoody Village, Georgetown BY DYANA BAGBY

streetscape improvements.

dyanabagby@reporternewspapers.net

Plans to create a “Main Street look” for Dunwoody Village and the Georgetown/North Shallowford area of the city remain on course as part of a Livable Centers Initiative grant awarded to the city in 2010. The $100,000 LCI grant, from the Atlanta Regional Commission and matched with $50,000 of city money, and is being used to create more walkable areas as well as enhance development and redevelopment. Last month, City Council received an update from the ARC on how the plans are coming along as part of a five-year review to maintain funding. In the next five years, the city and ARC are working to achieve certain goals, including making improvements to Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, the Mount Vernon Road streetscape and Ashford Center Parkway/Womack Road; creating more green space in Dunwoody Village; studying Village-area parking; and creating more sidewalk and trail connections. Georgetown/North Shallowford LCI plans include: The Georgetown/North Shallowford area included in the LCI covers the southern portion of the city, stretching generally from I-285 and Cotillion Drive to Independence Square, centered along Chamblee-Dunwoody Road. Plans outlined in the LCI are to enhance the quality of development and redevelopment in the area and to transform the area from an automobile-dominated commercial center into a more balanced, multi-modal activity center. What has been accomplished in Georgetown/North Shallowford Road ■ Project Renaissance including residential development, Georgetown Park and Pernoshal Park. ■ Emory Healthcare lease and renovation. ■ Jewish Family Services Center renovation and expansion. ■ Townhouse development on Old Spring House Lane (in progress). ■ Georgetown Square Townhouse development (in progress). ■ Connection of parks via a greenway trail system. ■ Optimization and coordination of traffic signals. ■ Bicycle lanes on North Shallowford Road from Cotillion to Peeler. ■ Old Spring House Lane trail. Plans under design as part of the Georgetown/North Shallowford LCI ■ Cotillion Drive sidewalk/trail. ■ Chamblee-Dunwoody Road

DUN

Studies underway: Georgetown Square connectivity through the Georgetown Shopping Center; extension of Peachford Rd from North Shallowford Road to Chamblee-Dunwoody Road. Dunwoody Village LCI plans Dunwoody Village is located in the central portion of the city, clustered generally around the intersection of Mount Vernon Road and Chamblee-Dunwoody Road, stretching from Womack Road to north of Dunwoody Village Parkway. The LCI plans focus on creating a more vibrant, walkable Village center, maintaining the area’s unique identity and character and promoting linkages to local neighborhoods from the Village Center. What has been accomplished in Dunwoody Village ■ Chase Bank development. ■ Novo Cucina renovation. ■ Sherwin-Williams redevelopment. ■ 1420 Dunwoody Square renovation (office buildings). ■ Marlow’s Tavern restaurant and First Watch restaurant openings.

■ Village Burger additions. ■ Rezoning of aged office development into a new townhome development (on the east side of Dunwoody Village and just north of Mount Vernon Road). ■ Transformation of Dunwoody Village Parkway from a four-lane divided Parkway into a two-lane multimodal street with dedicated bicycle facilities, sidewalks, lighting and landscaping

■ Multimodal improvements to Mount Vernon Road including repaving, bicycle lanes and sidewalks ■ Sidewalk improvements to Chamblee-Dunwoody Road ■ Lane narrowing to better accommodate cyclists on Ashford Center Parkway ■ Traffic signal and ITS enhancements to traffic signals in the area ■ Purchase of DeKalb County property for stormwater retention

County schools vote to spend $561 million for improvements Continued from page 1 woody and Brookhaven. His motion died for a lack of second. Dunwoody High School will receive a two-story, 29-classroom addition for $16.9 million that the school’s council readily admits is not enough, but is a step in the right direction. “We are excited about the improvements planned for Dunwoody High School,” said Bruce Kaminsky, co-chair of the DHS Council. “Is it perfect? No. Is it better than what we have? Absolutely.” Kaminsky said the DHS council did request the BOE delay the vote on ESPLOST projects for 60 days, but now that the vote has been made members are ready to work with school officials to ensure the improvements benefit the students, staff and community. “We are encouraged that we will have input into the changes made because the county has told us we will,” he said. The funding for the new high school classrooms is described as a 600-seat addition. But Kaminsky explained that does not mean the school will be adding another 600 students. Currently the school has 1,826 enrolled, but has a proposed capacity of 1,503 students – meaning the school has 323 more students than it can sustain. DeKalb schools are projecting that in 2022, DHS will have 2,093 students. Working with the current student enrollment of 1,826 and subtracting that from the projected 2,093 students, the school will actually see a net gain of 267 students, Kaminsky said. “Six hundred seats is a headline number ... and people are assuming we will get 600 new students,” he said. “But if you look behind the number, you see that there will only be a net of 267 students added. “Certainly we would rather be at capacity, but these enhancements are in sync with new students,” Kaminsky said. “Of course, who knows what the actual numbers will be in 2022?” Improvements planned for DHS with ESPLOST funds include a kitchen extension, a cafeteria extension, a new media center addition and the paving over a retention pond on the school’s property to add another 160 parking spaces for students. Voters overwhelmingly approved a referendum on May 24 for $561 million to be raised by extending the 1 cent ESPLOST for five years. The board voted to spend $291 million on new facilities and school additions to alleviate overcrowding, with $260 million coming from E-SPLOST revenue and $31 million coming from Georgia Department of Education capital outlay reimbursements. School officials have said there will be a shortage of 5,600 seats at DUN

secondary schools in Region 1 between now and 2022. Region 1 includes the Cross Keys Cluster in Brookhaven and the Dunwoody Cluster. “This blueprint will enable the DeKalb County School District to provide our students with first-class facilities and services that they deserve,” Superintendent Stephen Green said in a statement. “But our work is far from finished. We will engage the community every step of the way as these projects move forward. Our goal is to build trust, and complete quality projects, together.” Peachtree Charter Middle School also will get a 450 classroom addition valued at $14.1 million and Chamblee High School, where many Dunwoody students attend the charter school, will get a 600seat addition for $21 million. Kaminsky said he and the council are confident in Green and the transparency of the school administration. “Every school has needs, but there are only so many dollars to go around,” he said. “This is not optimal, but we are looking forward to moving forward to improve the school for our students, staff and the community. We do believe this is a big step in the right direction.”

Double Zero

A BY MEGAN VOLPERT In the past two years, the Castellucci Hospitality Group has opened Cooks & Soldiers in West Midtown, shuttered Double Zero Napolitana in Sandy Springs, opened a revised Double Zero concept in Emory Village, and announced plans to fill the Cockentrice vacancy in Krog Street Market. The original Double Zero location was meant for families, business lunches and lovers of authentic Neapolitan pizza. They ran bocce ball tournaments on the patio out back, and while the place may have been salvation for suburbanites seeking great wine and lovely plates while stuck with kids in tow, there was something about the cavernous gray space that never felt quite like home for

a family as warm and colorful as the Castelluccis. So they decamped for the more boisterous and crowded environs of campus life at Emory Village, occupying the old Ink & Elm space. After knocking down a bunch of walls to properly let in the sun, CHG also knocked down some of its own sense of refined traditionalism and chose instead to offer a more eclectic menu of small plates.

You can still get really excellent pizza at Double Zero, and with Slice & Pint next door, the kitchen has been ramping up its creativity to offer pies that go beyond the usual. We ordered a sausage and pear pizza where the pork sausage was local, the pears were lightly pickled, and the basil was super bright. If you want a plate all to yourself, DZ continues to do fresh pastas that suit the seasons. We tried the mafalde pasta, with mushrooms, peas and fennel, and well as the tortelli with butternut squash, apple butter, walnuts and pickled apples. Pickling is really having a moment in Atlanta, and the kitchen here is on top of it. The small plates are reasonably priced for the neighborhood, ranging from $6 to $17 and including a variety of vegetarian options. Standout plates are the burrata and the oxtail. Every Italian place requires some version of the burrata, and DZ’s goes all-in on the wintry delights of plum slices and scallion pesto. It’s a sweet but sassy interpretation with a nice sour-

B

dough bread and a fluffy cheese, a classic dish with unfussy modern updating.

D For the more adventurous, there’s the oxtail. Finely cut and not at all tough, the protein luxuriates in a bed of celery root puree, layered under frisee greenery and shredded Greek kataifi dough, then garnished with grapefruit. A finely textured and thoroughly playful vision of a shepherd’s pie, this dish truly shows the forward thinking going on in the kitchen. As for dessert, look beyond the flourless chocolate cake to the butterscotch budino and the pine nut tart, each $7. Budino is basically pudding in a jar, but it’s so thick and richly creamy that two people can share it and be full before reaching the bottom of the jar. The pine nut tart is an utterly more palatable adaptation of pecan pie, all the texture with a mercifully reduced sweetness. Did I mention the cocktails? Bless the bar manager, Nicholas Dolby, for hilarious names like the Stregasaurus, delicious riffs like the Architect’s old fashioned, and surreal new seasonals like El Pistolero.
