Best neighborhood to have it all BOA Award Winner

Pharmacy? Yep. Grocery store? Yes, and an organic one at that. Bars. Lots. A psychologist to talk about your feelings? Yeah, and in the same building as a dentist. Good neighborhoods have life’s daily needs in close proximity and are easy to walk around. LITTLE FIVE POINTS has all that, plus a strong dose of genuine Atlanta grit. Thanks to a grant from ArtPlace America, there’s now performance art in the streets. MARTA’s a 10-minute walk away, bumping it even higher in the rankings for a well-rounded neighborhood. www.littlefivepoints.net. less...

Last year CANDACE HILL, then a rising senior at Rockdale County High School, broke the world record to become the world’s fastest girl, running a 100-meter sprint in 10.98 seconds. And while most teenagers are still learning how to drive, Hill is deciding which shoe company would be her best sponsor. (She inked a 10-year deal with ASICS, turning pro and skipping college athletics.) The scholar athlete failed to place for the Summer Olympics in Brazil. But she took defeat and found a lesson, telling FloTrack: “You’re 17. You don’t have to compare yourself to others, because you’re a different age from them and even though you didn’t get the results you wanted, just keep your head held high.” www.twitter.com/candacedasav. less...

Best sports executive hire BOA Award Winner

Lisa Borders
When the WNBA needed to find a new president for the 20-year-old pro-basketball league, it made sense to tap LISA BORDERS. If the WNBA was looking for a leader with a contact list long enough to help boost its profile, they found her in the former Atlanta development executive, Atlanta City Council president,more...
When the WNBA needed to find a new president for the 20-year-old pro-basketball league, it made sense to tap LISA BORDERS. If the WNBA was looking for a leader with a contact list long enough to help boost its profile, they found her in the former Atlanta development executive, Atlanta City Council president, and philanthropic leader. The Atlanta native is a die-hard superfan who not only attends nearly every Dream game, but who also helped bring the WNBA team to the city. dream.wnba.com. less...

Kevin Gillespie has struck gold again with his down-home restaurant REVIVAL. The fried chicken and meatloaf may dominate the spotlight, but the real reason to visit Revival is the cornbread that arrives fresh with every meal. Revival’s rendition of this Southern staple comes as simple triangles cooked in cast-iron skillets. The basic appearance belies the complex interior of Revival’s cornbread, which manages to evoke both the silky texture of a soufflé and the creaminess of a thick spoon bread at the same time. It comes from a recipe passed down by Gillespie’s great-grandmother, for whom we should all give thanks. less...
