It’s been a little over a year since COVID-19 shut down the world, and after being postponed earlier this year, the 63rd Grammy Awards is about to start its pandemic-era awards show at the Los Angeles Convention Center in downtown Los Angeles.

Usually, the music industry’s top artists hit the red carpet in over-the-top designer outfits. However, as has been the case during this year’s awards season, Sunday’s Grammy Awards is looking a little different on the style front. Some stars dressed for comfort as they win awards at home, while others appeared on the red carpet in designer looks from a Grammys show pretaped last week.

Tucker’s efforts to annex area near Northlake Mall, remove term limits stall out

Tucker Mayor Frank Auman told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution he was surprised neither piece of legislation gained traction. He added that the DeKalb delegations know what the city wants and encourages them to revisit both ideas next legislative session.

Annexation

Since Tucker was chartered in 2015, the city has annexed properties, but it’s always done so based on public participation — not legislative approval.

In February, the city passed a resolution to ask the Legislature to annex 22 parcels to help alleviate service issues, such as land planning and roadway maintenance.

“It’s a real problem to get service delivery in there, which is really what cities are for, right,” Auman said.

Tucker is asking state leaders to allow the city to annex the area of unincorporated DeKalb that is colored orange on this map. The area is nearly surrounded by Tucker's current city limits.
