    Glad to know about your blog. Wonderful resource.

  2. Mr. Williams: I stumbled on your blog today and find it a great resource for my neighborhood association in DeKalb Co. I did not see a RSS or other syndication option – can you provide one? I would like to distribute your contributions via CommunityRadar.com to benefit more residents and to spread the word about your sharing. Thanks! -Kim

    I like this website and would use it more, EXCEPT the grey typ and the light green type are nearly impossible to read. It looks neat and clean, but what’s the use if users cannot read it. In fact, the text b/n the header and the copy (the date and bylines?) is completely unreadable to me. the rest is just difficult to read.

  8. Jody, thanks for your comments. Look for a new format in the weeks to come. Kyle

    Does anyone know where all of the cells towers in GA are located? How does one find out? Txs

  10. Lisa, thanks for the question. I cannot verify their accuracy, but here are a few websites that might point you in the correct direction:

  11. How can we let you know of articles that may interest your readers. For example, the following article discusses proposed legislation to redefine navigable waters to include bodies as small as creeks and to include regulation of streams that do not flow year-round. http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/dec/15/house-bill-extends-epa-reach-into-wetlands/

  12. Laurel, just send me an email at kwilliams@bloom-law.com. Thanks for the tip. Take care and happy holidays. Kyle

  13. We are looking into buy a house where we can have livestock and growing vegetables. What zoning code should we look for?

  14. I wish to place an audiobook onto CD for normal CD players.

    However the size is too large for just one CD. Is there a way the quality
    may be reduced (mono?) therefore it is smaller, but nonetheless
    usable in a normal CD?

  15. I was doing online research on zoning done 46 years ago by Fulton County but is now land within the Johns Creek City Limit. The land was zoned for a funeral home but today the area is heavily residential (Case RZ-13-016 – goes to Planning Commission tomorrow 11-5) – where can I look – can you please point me in the right direction?

    Do you know about the legality of having 2 or 3 pygmy or dwarf goats in Douglas county? The property is 1 acre zoned for residential.
