Finding a certified, experienced locksmith is no easy task. Sure, dozens of companies out there will dispatch an indifferent "technician" that offers "quick" solutions when you lose your keys.

If you are a business owner in Georgia, you have the weighty responsibility of protecting your patrons and securing your businesses' assets. The most common way for entrepreneurs to keep their business safe is by having a commercial locksmith in Austell install quality, reliable locks on every entry point of your storefront. But, unfortunately, many business owners take the least amount of effort necessary when it comes to protecting their business.
Whether you own several franchise locations or have a single storefront, it only takes one break-in to make you realize the importance of installing high-quality locks for your commercial property. Sadly, at that point, it's too late - your ability to provide for your family and pay your bills has been compromised. For that reason alone, it's always better to be proactive about your businesses' security rather than reactive.

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) grading system was developed years ago to standardize a testing procedure to measure the durability and strength of a door lock. This grading system applies to both residential and commercial door locks. Composed of three different grades, the ANSI grading system gives homeowners and business owners a good idea of lock quality and reliability. ANSI examines six different qualities to determine a lock's grade:
These locks offer the highest level of security and are most often used by institutions like hospitals, schools, and even museums. These locks also have the highest life expectancy, though they can be much more complex and require an expert residential or commercial locksmith in cityname to install. In today's day and age, many more homeowners are opting for Grade 1 locks (like electronic locks) for the most peace of mind. This classification of lock must hold up against 800,000 cycles, six door strikes and a 360-pound weight test.
These locks are great for residential areas with more foot traffic, like a door that leads to an apartment complex or suite of rooms. These locks can also suffice for small businesses that need a higher level of security than Grade 3 locks. Use these locks when you want to secure access to areas with valuable equipment or sensitive documents. This classification of lock requires 400,000 cycles, four door strikes, and a 250-pound weight test.
This grade of lock is best suited for residential purposes and is considered standard door hardware. This kind of lock is the least expensive and should never be used in a high-traffic area like a lobby or storefront. However, these locks would be suitable for areas without much foot traffic like storage closets or areas without expensive merchandise. Because these locks are easiest to bypass, consider upgrading your Grade 3 locks with anti-bump and anti-pick technology. This classification of lock requires 200,000 lock cycles, two door strikes, and a 150-pound weight test.
A famous animator and movie director once said: "The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing."

Spartanburg, SC (RestaurantNews.com) Eggs Up Grill, a rapidly growing breakfast, brunch and lunch concept, will open a new restaurant in Austell, Ga. this summer.

They loved the concept and the food and said the opportunity was a perfect match with the simple operations, great support and work life balance.
“When I was growing up, our family ate breakfast together every morning before work and school to discuss the day, and I think that’s so important for families,” says Lorette Dessieux. “We are excited to create that same environment for the community of Austell – a place to enjoy the nostalgia of breakfast or brunch with friends and family.”
With indoor seating for 135 and outdoor seating for 24, the 2,800 square-foot restaurant is designed to make guests feel at home in a light, bright and cheery atmosphere. The Austell restaurant will serve guests seven days a week from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m., with dine-in, online ordering, takeout, catering and delivery options available.

MARIETTA, Ga. — A ribbon-cutting ceremony on Tuesday brought much-needed attention to a new food bank opening in the Cobb County community, where organizers said the need is greater than the resources.
Atlanta Community Food Bank said it expects the location to be open by the end of July at 1605 Austell Road and is hoped to be a lifesaver for the families in and around the Fair Oaks communities of Cobb County, just south of Marietta Square.
“This community, the Fair Oaks community just south of Marietta, has a really large Hispanic population,” Kyle Waide, President and CEO of the Atlanta Community Food Bank, said, adding later, "We really designed this location with that community in mind after working with other stakeholders in the community to really zero-in on this location.”
Waide said they look to meet the community where they are and offer culturally relevant foods for the families. He expects that 700 families a week would cycle through the local once it's open.
“We're seeing about 40% more people access food through our network than we did only a year and a half ago,” Waide said, “and at the same time, we're seeing a real big pullback in federal supports for these families."
And still, the bank is looking for ways to make the process easier on families; according to Waide, residents can make appointments to pick up food. This makes it easier to get in and out and not add another hassle to the family's day.
“They’re going be able to call or text to make appointments so that when they show up to get food,” Waide said, “they can get in and out very quickly and really get on to the other things they need to do to support their families."
With prices fluctuating, often towards the higher side, and fewer benefit programs available, Waide said this leads to "more people who are vulnerable and in harm's way." The new food bank center aims to be a bridge to a family’s survival and future.
“They will get access to really high quality, nutritious food at no cost to them,” Waide said. “They'll get connected to other benefit programs. They'll get connected to other community resources. And all in all, that'll help them build more stability and really get on a pathway to a brighter future.”
Waide said it will fill a gap in the food bank’s network in that part of Cobb, where the need is, as the food bank works to expand its network.
“We've got to find a way to get more food into the community to ensure that those families don't fall farther behind,” he said.

A freight train in Georgia crashed into a semi-truck after the driver failed to clear the tracks in time.
Surveillance video shows the driver of the truck on the road before making a left turn onto the railroad trucks at Veteran Memorial Highway and Austell Powder Springs Road in Austell, Georgia on Tuesday morning, according to CDL Life.
A number of passenger vehicles who saw the train coming backed away to give the truck enough room to move ahead, but the driver continued through the railroad tracks as the crossing arms lowered, a bell blares and warning lights are activated.
The truck made it midway through the tracks when an oncoming Norfolk Southern freight train running at full speed slammed head on into its back.
An explosive sound is heard before the truck falls to the side and its cargo falls to the ground. The truck driver, who has not been identified, walked away uninjured.

It is unclear what the name of the trucking company involved in the crash is.
The video went viral with many familiar with the area sharing their experiences with the dangerous intersection. Some expressed empathy for the driver while others felt that the truck driver made a poor decision.
'Having lived in the town where this happened and being very familiar with this intersection, I can confirm 2 things,' someone wrote, in part, on Redditt.
'The intersection is horrible with traffic stacking up and, second, this truck driver is not the only one to have issues here.'
Another person chimed in. 'Agree. Terrible intersection. It’s a big spaghetti legacy mess of industrial stuff and civilians driving through it.'
Someone else added: 'Poor guy was just confused and unaware,' they said.
'Grew up in Cobb Co. Georgia. Trust me, this is not the first time this has happened on that stretch of road,' another added.

UPDATE January 14 --
WEATHER SERVICE: Tornado hit Austell area
A National Weather Service team toured the damage in the Ivy Log area of Austell following Thursday's storm. They determined an EF1 tornado with 110 mph winds hit the area. The mile-and-a-half-long path started in Douglas County near the damaged warehouse in Lithia Springs and moved eastward into Cobb.
Fifty homes were damaged in the area, with 16 destroyed or significantly damaged. All the homeowners had insurance, and the Red Cross was working with other families on any immediate needs.
There was damage across the county from the storm. Those who did not call 911 and have not been visited by damage teams should report their circumstances in our portal at https://arcg.is/nL448 ----- UPDATE January 13 --
We are fortunate that none of our Cobb residents were seriously injured during the storms that caused so much devastation across the state this week. Cobb Emergency Management and GEMA officials formed a damage assessment team that surveyed the hard-hit Austell neighborhoods earlier today.
Watch the video for details of that assessment and to view images of some of the storm’s destruction.
For those in Cobb who suffered damage to their homes or property and did not call 911 or meet with the assessment team, please report your details to us at https://arcg.is/nL448.
* The team found 50 homes damaged in the Ivy Log neighborhoods alone. Of those, 16 are considered destroyed or damaged enough to be uninhabitable.
* No serious injuries were reported. One person was hit by debris and checked out at a hospital. A second person suffered a cardiac event and was also treated at a hospital.
* A National Weather Service team will likely decide next week if the damage in Austell was from straight-line winds or a small tornado. There was no active Tornado Warning in the area at the time.
* Cobb DOT crews worked much of the day across the county to clear debris. They opened 25 roads the night of the storm and handled another 26 calls today.
* Damage was reported in all corners of the county. Please use the reporting tool listed above to ensure we have a complete view of the storm’s impact. ----- January 12 --
A fast-moving storm rolled through Cobb County on January 12, damaging dozens of homes and businesses, and closing multiple roadways. The most significant reports came from the Austell area, where damage reports were concentrated around the Oak Ridge Parkway / Blairs Bridge Road area. Damage assessment in that area will continue into the night. No significant injuries have been reported.
No Tornado Warning was posted for the area at the time, so the county's outdoor warning sirens, activated by computer, did not go off.
Residents are asked to report damage to our online reporting portal at https://arcg.is/nL448. This can be accessed by phone or computer and will allow those who have not called 911 or aren’t sure if their damage has been recorded to report it to us. A damage assessment team will then follow up with them.

AUSTELL, Ga. — The Cobb County Planning Commission approved a rezoning request by an Atlanta-based company as part of a process to build nearly 60-home subdivision in Austell on Tuesday.
The rezoning request is aimed at a series of parcels off of Maxham Road.
Drapac Investments, an international property investment company, requested rezoning for a 19.45-acre section of land in Austell to build 59 single-family homes.
According to the materials submitted by Drapac to the county, the land would be built on what is currently an undeveloped wooded lot.
As proposed, Drapac would develop the area into a set of single-family homes, in an attached and detached subdivision.
While the rezoning was approved Tuesday, a final site plan must still be submitted to the District Commissioner.
Additionally, the investment company would have to complete a series of other checklist items to gain approval, based on the staff recommendation.
On top of the site plan, Drapac would have to forego any variance requests, have a maximum density of four units per acre, all detached single-family houses, receive and submit Fire Department comments and recommendations, as well as the same from the Water and Sewer Division, Stormwater Management Division, and Georgia Department of Transportation.
The zoning files state that the locations would be developed for “affordable single-family detached or attached residential dwelling units,” including combinations of duplexes, triplexes, and quadraplexes.
Overall, the residential criteria in the materials submitted to the county say the area would be able to have up to 63 units, based on a buildout approved in March 2016.
The original proposal included 97 units, according to the documents.
According to the plan, the neighborhood would have any potential students be in the district for Mableton Elementary School, Garrett Middle School, and South Cobb High School.
As far as build and aesthetic, the “architectural language” of the proposal lists Modern Farmhouse and Craftsman style designs for the homes, according to a render packet received on May 18.
While the rezoning was approved on Tuesday, a final consideration will be before the Cobb County Board of Commissioners on June 20.
