College tuition, fee hike reignites HOPE debate

College tuition, fee hike reignites HOPE debate

ATLANTA -- The Georgia Board of Regents has announced a hike in both tuition and fees for Georgia's state colleges and universities during a meeting Tuesday.

"It's highly likely that tuition will have to increase to meet the needs of the students and to meet the student growth we have experienced," said Regents executive John Millsaps before the meeting.

The tuition hike comes close on the heels of a major overhual of the popular HOPE scholarship program which means students will be left to pay the rising costs of college in the state.

State representative Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, who played a major role in revamping the HOPE scholarship, says tough choices had to be made to keep the program afloat financially.

"Students are still getting one of the best values in the country," State Rep. Collins said. "We feel like we've done what we needed to do to keep a program solvent for future generations.

INMAN PARK: Neighbors on edge after robbery

ATLANTA -- Neighbors in the Inman Park community are keeping their eyes open, looking for a man who robbed and pistol whipped a group of people leaving a neighborhood bar, earlier this month.

On Saturday, April 2, APD Zone 6 patrols were dispatched to the scene of a pedestrian robbery on the 800 block of Inman Village Parkway.

Police say Sarah Dowdey, Amanda Arnold and John Fuller were walking to their vehicles from Alberts when they were approached by a man with a gun demanding that they hand over their belongings.

The group said the suspect hit Arnold with his handgun then, after securing all of their belongings, advised them to turn around and run for their lives.

The suspect is being described as a black male, about 5'9, with a mustache and no beard.

Anyone with information on this crime should contact CrimeStoppers at 404-577-TIPS (8477).

Atlanta street food scene sizzles

ATLANTA -- It's almost "Street Food Thursday."

"Street Food Thursday" is a street food extravaganza incepted some time ago as a way to peacefully combat "newly revised" regulations on street food vendors in Atlanta and also to attract visitors for the Woodruff Arts Center.

The whole "street food" phenomena is somewhat new to the Atlanta area. What we call a street food vendor is referred to as a food truck on the West Coast or a bodega on the East Coast; however, Atlanta is working toward putting a new flair on those old concepts.

By holding a host of street food festivals, round ups, picnics and summits, Atlanta has already, perhaps unknowingly, created a street food culture. In addition to Southern "foodie-ism", this culture is surely ramping up to be one of great popularity.

Deadly storms spare Metro Atlanta

Deadly storms spare Metro Atlanta

ATLANTA -- Thousands of Metro Atlantans spent part of the weekend without power after severe thunderstorms pounded portions of North Georgia Friday. This same system has claimed at least 44 lives moving across the Southeast.

The storms weakened as they crossed into the Peach State and did less damage than the storms that slammed Metro Atlanta two weeks ago, but they still knocked down trees and power lines across the region.

About 1,800 Georgia Power customers were still without power Sunday morning in the Rome and Cedartown areas, which were hardest hit by the storms. Georgia Power said restorations were expected by 1 p.m. Georgia EMC reported no outages.
