The Best Little Free Newspaper. The Sandy Springs Reporter

Real Estate Agent with Atlanta Communities Real Estate Brokerage GREC #208281

 I live in Sandy Springs and I like to stay up to date with what's happening around the area.  I've seen a lot of those free neighborhood newspapers over the years but they never caught my attention much. 

For some reason though, the new Sandy Springs Reporter comes across with a fresh voice that I really like.  I always look forward to the  next addition coming out.

The thing that caught me by surprise was the police blotter section.  I usually can't stop laughing at some of the stuff that Lt. Steve Rose of the SSPD writes up.  There's always some extra commentary about how the perpetrator screwed up and got caught. Sometimes he adds a moral to the story. In the latest addition there was the following.

A man called the police and said that he was in fear of his life, of his wife, because she "aggressively brushed up to him." He said as the day went on, things progressively got worse to the point that she was "snatching things away from him." The officer recorded the complaint and then gave the man a brochure for "Man Camp".

It's a fairly new paper and they don't have much of an online archive yet. Hopefully they'll get a better online version.  I find so much good information about what's going on.  There was a story about a wonderful old estate that is just a mile away from my home that is hidden from view from the street.  I would have never known about it except for this story.

If you want the inside scoop on what's going on or what is planned for Sandy Springs, you have to make sure you read the Sandy Springs Reporter.  They also have the Buckhead Reporter which is also very good.

Tim, I love to find root for the underdog who's doing a great job.  Your paper sounds like that.  I'm commenting so I can return and read the story about the estate later.
