The Week in Review
The top five stories from the previous week in the North Druid Hills-Briarcliff area.
- Armored Car Guard Dies From Gunshot Wounds Suffered in Toco Hill Robbery: It should come as no surprise that this story is by far the most well-read item published on the site since North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch launched in December. The most bizarre, violent, surprising and tragic incident to occur in the North Druid Hills area in some time. When law enforcement catches the guys who did this, we'll update you again.
- After Board Vote, Medlock Parents Weigh Next Year's Schooling Options: After the DeKalb County Board of Education voted to close Medlock Elementary School at the end of the school year, parents at the school are now figuring out whether they're going to send their child to a new public school or find some other option, including private school.
- Bagel Palace Hub of Neighborhood Bagel War: Patch contributor Diane Loupe wrote a nice story about the increasingly competitive bagel climate in North Druid Hills and the independent shop at the center of it: Bagel Palace in Toco Hill Shopping Center. The story was the second-most well-read story of the week.
- Archdiocese: Church School to Select New Head Before Easter: Immaculate Heart of Mary Catholic School off Briarcliff Road has received an unusual amount of press coverage over the last month since the principal, Tricia DeWitt, announced her resignation from the school over a dispute with the Rev. James Schillinger regarding the identity of an anonymous donor who pledged to give the school $1 million last year. Interesting story, and stay tuned to North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch for continuing coverage.
- Briarcliff, Emory to See 18,000 Runners on Sunday: This story is pretty self-explanatory. If you were driving around today, and you saw an abnormally large bunch of people running on the street, this is likely what you saw. If you didn't already know this: BOOM. North Druid Hills-Briarcliff Patch just newsed you. You're welcome.
