In these hard times, yard sales are a great way to inexpensively furnish your house, find a new bike, build your record library or simply get a bunch of cool crap. You’ll see yard sales all over town, but VIRGINIA-HIGHLAND is nearly always worth the drive.

Regular CL readers know that we love us some BELTLINE. It's always Beltline this, Beltline that, Beltline cure for cancer, etc. There's just one hitch: It doesn't exactly exist yet - and won't for years to come. The city recently inked some land deals in the southwest quadrant, but half the Beltline property has yet to be acquired and some of it is still being used for freight traffic. City poobahs say the Beltline will have full-on light-rail transit, but many skeptics believe it simply will be a greenway and bike path. And the financing proposals are more than a little shaky. So, what’s the Beltline ever done for us? Well, it gives us something to hope for and dream about - it gives us a reason to believe that, someday, Atlanta will be a better place.www.beltline.org. less...
