Russell Mitchell of BrookhavenYES answers five questions from Patch.

There is typically not a large showing of this demographic at the town hall and civic association meetings so I want to have a forum for information gathering that appeals to them. Verde is a popular spot for just about everyone in the area and the turnout and support has been great so far. A new city will…

Verde Taqueria passes secret shopping with flying colors
At Verde Taqueria, going green in a whole new way has never been more fun.

She shared that she was long overdue for a vacation, so help this Georgia girl find her way to a sandy beach with a nice tip or two. The rest of the staff demonstrated similar behaviors. They…
