Would you sign an online petition asking Cartersville leaders to request the Georgia Department of Transportation install a traffic signal at the Publix shopping center?
Ever had trouble navigating the traffic along Cartersville's East Main Street between the Publix shopping center and Starbucks?

"Drivers, both old and young/experienced and inexperienced, are required to cross fast-moving traffic (coming off of I-75) while also watching for other drivers, opposite of them, who are attempting the same dangerous driving maneuver," Zimmer wrote on change.org. "This is an extremely dangerous intersection that is in desperate need of a traffic light." The Georgia …

The Cartersville man not allowed to flip, toss and twirl his signs on public property in Cartersville is headed to Germany to train a group of sign flippers, according to his Facebook page.
The man who was at odds with the city of Cartersville over his sign flipping business for some time has gained national, and even international, attention for his tossing and twirling abilities. Cartersville native Julian Falkenstein started his business about four years ago, advertising for other businesses in Cartersville by flipping their signs on sidewalks or busy roadsides. Two years in, citizens' concerns for safety prompted officials to take a look at ordinances governing The Sign Flipper's main activity, The Daily Tribune News reported. Although Falkenstein addressed city leaders several times, the council, by a 5-to-1 vote, finally decided last year that the twirling or rotating of signs would not be allowed on public property. …

Darrah Photo is the first tenant in a historic Cartersville building being renovated for shops, loft apartments and maybe a restaurant.
