Georgians are part of a national movement to keep holiday cash at home.
“Look, Charlie, let's face it. We all know that Christmas is a big commercial racket. It's run by a big eastern syndicate, you know.” – Lucy van Pelt to Charlie Brown in “A Charlie Brown Christmas” Americans have worried about losing the true meaning of Christmas since at least 1965, when Charlie Brown lamented the holiday’s commercialization in a Peanuts special. This year, there’s a movement afoot to bring Christmas closer to home. An apparently anonymous essay circulating on the Web has drawn the attention of people in Georgia. It calls for buying local services as gifts instead of products manufactured in foreign countries: You see, Christmas is no longer about draining American pockets so that China can build another glittering city…

Council passes fee structure for Sunday alcohol sales
- Peter Cox
Wednesday, November 16, 2011
Dunwoody residents overwhelmingly cast their votes last week to have the freedom to buy booze on Sundays. The Dunwoody City Council wants to collect a fee for those sales. Monday, the council approved a fee schedule for licensing Sunday package sales. Package retailers that would like to sell alcohol on Sundays will be assessed a $1,100 annual fee for the right to sell liquor on Sundays. The city charges the same price for Sunday sales at bars and restaurants, a fee set in 2009. The annual fee is the same price as most other cities that passed the referendum on Sunday alcohol sales, city officials said. Stores currently pay $4,000 for an alcohol sales license. Councilman Robert Wittenstein found the fee structure for Sunday sales …

Majority of council supports putting it to voters.
Dunwoody residents are likely to get their say in the Sunday liquor sales debate this fall. Tuesday, the Georgia House passed a bill to allow Sunday alcohol sales, and the bill is now moving on to Gov. Nathan Deal, who has said he’ll sign it. For people in the alcohol sales industry, it is welcome news. “It would definitely be a good because we’ll be open another day,” said Pratik Patel, owner of the Perimeter Bottle Shop. While the issue has been bounced around for several years, he said he figured that sooner or later the bill would get approval. State law currently prohibits grocery stores and other retailers from selling beer and wine Sunday, though people can buy and consume alcohol in bars and restaurants on Sunday. But under the …

New Dunwoody restaurant features wings, pizza and Friday night fish fries
Buffalo, N.Y., has lent its name to that favorite of pub appetizers, wings. It's also known for its distinctive pizzas. But just because this is the South doesn't mean diners can't enjoy the same famous flavors right here at home. The owners of Galla's have brought the casual cuisine of their hometown to Dunwoody, recently opening at 1155 Mt. Vernon Highway. Since 2000, the business has been popular in East Cobb, and three years, they ventured into Chamblee. For this new location, they're not messing with a good thing: The favorites are all in place, starting with wings in 17 flavors, including Oriental sesame, honey barbecue and hot teriyaki. Buffalo natives will also recognize the "weck" rolls - short for Kimmelwecks, soft, doughy beds …
