Editor’s Note

This Saturday marks a somber anniversary – 20 years since the attacks of 9/11. In Dunwoody, police officers are donning badges with the words “Never Forget.” In Sandy Springs, the mayor is asking for a moment of silence at 8:46 a.m., the same time the first hijacked plane hit the World Trade Center. Other events are planned throughout the city, including a temporary exhibit at the Atlanta History Center. 

Our top stories this week include record turnout for youth sports in Sandy Springs and a Q&A with a Dunwoody-based screenwriter. 

Also, we are seeking nominations for our “20 under 20” special section in January, highlighting students ages 19 and under who are contributing to their community in a significant way. Please submit your nominations here.
