Previously In Georgia Politics...

And The First Senate Candidate On The Air Is.... Karen Handel who purchased radio ads in Atlanta, Savannah, and Athens.  Hmmm, isn't that the markets that would cover the three Congressmen in the race?

And The First Candidate To Replace John Barge Is... Richard Woods who lost to Barge in the 2010 GOP Primary.  After much prayer and consultation, I have decided to once again enter the race for State School Superintendent of Georgia. It is my plans to file the necessary paperwork this week and officially launch my campaign on September 16. Your prayers for wisdom and traveling protection as Lisha and I once again begin this journey will be greatly appreciated and needed.

Meanwhile In The Syrian Saga... State Rep. Scott Holcomb appeared on CNN to weigh in. Syria is dominating 25 of the 24 hours in the news cycle, and Congressman Jack Kingston is taking an online survey to ask if you would "support military intervention in country?" Yu, however is a definite "No." Karen Handel also spoke on the Syria issue at Johnie MacCrackens pub in Marietta

Nullify Obamacare? That's what an online petition seeks. Georgians for Healthcare Freedom says they have more than 17,000 signatures so far. Studies show potential premiums could be all over the map. (Pssst. Hey, it might just nullify itself.) (H/t to Daniel Malloy at the AJC.)

On Tonight's Episode...

Broken Water Main Illuminates Another Of Metro Atlanta's Problems: Repairs to a broken 30-inch water main in the Clairmont Road area of I-85 snarled traffic yesterday, and Bob Webb of Fairhope, Alabama got caught up in it. When he arrived at his hotel he discovered it was without -you guessed it- water. He stayed anyway, saying: "I’d rather live without water than face their traffic out here,” said Webb, who is from Fairhope, Ala.“I bypass Atlanta whenever I can, and 4 o’clock in the afternoon is no time to be here. I would have stayed there without electricity.” People avoid Atlanta and would rather go without water than get caught in the traffic. The city too busy to get anywhere? 

Related: Some new Georgia cities appear to be doing quite well. Brookhaven Councilmember Rebecca Chase Williams reports that in Georgia's newest city, there's a brand new police department a takeover of parks from DeKalb County -and that her own property tax bill by $75. Are you listening, Tucker, Lakeside and Briarcliff?

Coming Soon...

Oh, what the heck, just put it anywhere! Savannah picks a location for a new arena, after thinking about alternate locations, then changing their minds back -without any study of those alternate sites. Does that hurt or help the chances of voter approval of a SPLOST to pay for the project? 

Do You Fear Me NOW? The City of Milton denied permits for three 15-story cell towers, and got dragged into federal court by T-Mobile. Milton won. Another victory that probably wouldn't have happened if Milton hadn't been incorporated.
