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 Johns Creek 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."

ATLANTA — There's a place in Atlanta where musicians can learn to play the bamboo flute, the guzheng, and even the erhu.
These instruments in the western world are known as the flute, 21-string Chinese plucked zither, and a Chinese violin, respectively.
Yao Lu, who owns the Magic Eastern Music Studio and leads its performing ensemble, said that's the beauty of sharing her culture through music.
"So actually, we try to make it (diverse)," Lu said.
Lu, along with other musicians and students, learned how to play conventional Chinese and East Asian songs with a creative edge.
"We play traditional instruments but we want to make the music not be too traditional," she said.
A master at the bamboo flute and the 21-string guzheng, she accomplishes this by adding western influences, including jazz and pop influences and electronic elements that fuse with older East Asian sounds. It's to help connect the growing and vast Asian audience that exists in Georgia.
"I think the Asian community is growing in the metro Atlanta area," Cindy Fang, a musician with Lu's Magic Eastern Ensemble said.
Fang, who has lived in Georgia for 10 years, started with the studio when she was young. The ensemble was founded in 2018 and the studio started a few years beforehand. Both musicians said the studio has gained new prominence as Georgia's Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) community continues to grow its presence.
With new organizations helping to bring the community together in culture and education, Fang said the ensemble stands out.
"We try to rebrand this kind of old, ancient, traditional music and we invite other communities and invite other ethnicities to listen to our music," she said.
Fang plays the shaoqin erhu, an instrument that resembles what's known as the traditional two-string Chinese violin with an electronic gadget. It is believed that Fang is the only shaoqin erhu player in Georgia.
She says the instrument helps the ensemble broaden its sound and attract new listeners.
"We're trying to (bridge) this kind of Asian, AAPI community with larger audiences," Fang said. "You can use the instruments to make it more diverse, (add more) music elements."
They've worked to get their music in front of more people which has translated into a fully booked Lunar New Year.
"I think she's pretty packed with all of the performances," Fang said of Lu.
The 15-day celebration kicks off on Jan. 22, when families ring in the Year of the Rabbit. Even before the celebration officially starts, Lu is visiting schools, and colleges representing her nonprofit, while also getting the ensemble performance-ready to play at festivals across Georgia.
"For me, doing the celebration is just doing my job, (playing) the instrument," Lu said about Lunar New Year. "I feel so happy because I like it."
Lu joked besides playing Lunar New Year shows, she also enjoys eating holiday food.
And the music won't stop once the holiday is over.
Later this year, they will have a concert at Aurora Theater in June and anticipate playing a gala in December.
They said keeping busy isn't a bad thing -- it's all part of bringing the cultural community together and giving people new music to appreciate.
"This is my favorite thing in my life," Lu said. "Just playing my instruments."
Lu is currently working on a new website that will soon be released. In the meantime, people who would like to learn more about the ensemble or the studio can visit Magic Eastern Music Studio on Facebook. Anyone who wants to learn is welcome to join.
JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Last year, the City of Johns Creek installed a fence at Macedonia Cemetery to enclose the site’s known graves. But Kirk Canaday, Johns Creek Historical Society member, knows there are more.“The first and earliest graves were near the [original] church,” Canaday said.There were two churches on the property.

JOHNS CREEK, Ga. — Last year, the City of Johns Creek installed a fence at Macedonia Cemetery to enclose the site’s known graves. But Kirk Canaday, Johns Creek Historical Society member, knows there are more.
“The first and earliest graves were near the [original] church,” Canaday said.
There were two churches on the property. Canaday said the original church was burned, and then a second, made of cinderblocks, was vandalized and torn down by Fulton County around 2001.
At a Jan. 9 meeting, Canaday urged Johns Creek City Manager Ed Densmore to clear ground of trees and seek services for ground penetrating radar to find additional graves. The meeting was the first to include family members of those buried at Macedonia.
Sabrina Aquell, who attended the meeting, has several family members buried at the cemetery. Aquell is related to Reuben Chandler, who has the earliest grave marker (1848-1893). She is also related to many of the Ousleys buried at the cemetery. Through stories passed down to her, Aquell said she has a strong connection to her grandfather, Sam Jones, who is buried there as well.
“Someone besides me, and families, [are] interested in my ancestors,” Aquell said. “It’s very important.”
Madyun Shahid, a descendent of April Waters — one of the few marked and documented burials on site — helped coordinate the meeting, which sought feedback from engineering consultant Eric Nelson and geophysicist Rauf Hussein.
Several factors affect the efficacy of ground penetrating radar, Hussein said, including ground leveling, wetness and casket material. Graves without any casket at all, like most at Macedonia, are the most complicated to detect, he said.
Canaday, alongside former Johns Creek Councilwoman Stephanie Endres, sat on his porch for four hours to formulate the cost of tree clearing and ground penetrating radar. They estimated the project at around $100,000.
The amount was later budgeted by the city, with some funds earmarked for the cemetery’s strategic plan completed last August. The heavily criticized report does mention tree removal to “create a more open environment,” but no ground penetrating radar was mentioned.
Canaday confirmed that probes have been employed by the Georgia Department of Transportation and New South Associates, but he said radar has yet to be performed, and that the process requires tree removal.
While Densmore said that removing a considerable number of trees would lead to erosion issues involving stormwater runoff, Canaday is most concerned with the northwest area where there are tree saplings, and whose removal will have less of an impact.
Nicole Washington, Impact Johns Creek founder, suggested that the project be targeted toward specific areas, rather than the entire site. Canaday wants to target an area that is around 50 feet by 100 feet on the north end of the site, where the original church was located.
Densmore explained the city’s bidding process for completing the ground penetrating project. Depending on the price point, he said he would have to seek other bids. But Nelson, who is based out of Little Rock, Arkansas, said he would survey the land at no cost.
Canaday plans to coordinate with Nelson for the site survey.
Joan Compton, Johns Creek Historical Society president, said preserving the current grave markers should also be a priority, noting their degradation over the years.
The strategic plan lacks a blueprint, she said, and the timeline to create the Macedonia nonprofit is questionable. The Johns Creek City Council recently approved plans to create a nonprofit intended to provide Macedonia stakeholders a formal route to make requests to the city.
“It could be summer before anything is done,” Compton said. “And in the meantime, those gray stones are sitting there in the elements face up.”

A lot of the buzz surrounding the Texas football program this week has to do with the upcoming festivities during Junior Day, which begins on Jan. 21. Texas and head coach Steve Sarkisian will be hosting at least a couple dozen visitors among potential targets for the 2024 and 2025 recruiting classes during Junior Day this weekend.
Among the highlighting visitors for Texas’ Junior Day this weekend are the elite five-star IMG Academy running back Jerrick Gibson, five-star Waco Connally cornerback Kobe Black, four-star Allen edge rusher Zina Umeozulu, and four-star Hoschton Mill Creek (GA) edge rusher KingJoseph Edwards.
And those are just the highlighting visitors from the 2024 class for the Longhorns on Junior Day.
There are going to be multiple 2025 recruits on campus this weekend for some important unofficial visits too.
Moreover, one of the key storylines to watch during any Junior Day weekend this early in the offseason is the prospective offers that the coaching staff sends out. We’re likely going to see somewhere in the ballpark of at least a half-dozen offers sent out in the coming days, largely thanks to the visitors that make it to campus for Junior Day.
With that in mind, here’s a look at an evaluation of three 2024 Junior Day visitors that Texas should offer this weekend.
LSU’s new OL commit Khayree Lee Jr clearing the Rummel defender completely out of the play. pic.twitter.com/5yHm3DAdrl
— dylan is on vacation (@DillySanders) November 12, 2022
Offensive line coach/offensive coordinator Kyle Flood and the Longhorns are now in the early stages of finding the next class of “big humans” to man the trenches. Texas has keyed in on some early in-state targets along the offensive line that the fans are starting to get familiar with, including four-star Copperas Cove offensive tackle Michael Uini and four-star League City Clear Springs interior offensive lineman Blake Ivy.
But there are going to be some out-of-state offensive line recruits in the 2024 class that are on campus for Junior Day this weekend that Texas fans should start getting familiar with too.
Among the most physically impressive out-of-state offensive linemen visiting Texas for Junior Day this weekend is the towering 6-foot-5 and 340-pound LSU Tigers three-star interior offensive lineman commit Khayree Lee. The Marrero John Ehret product is one of the largest and most physically gifted interior offensive linemen that Flood and the Longhorns are hosting this weekend.
Yet, Lee hasn’t received a Texas offer as of the time of this article being written late in the morning of Jan. 20.
I would anticipate that he is certainly an offer candidate heading into the weekend given the reported (per Gerry Hamilton of Inside Texas) increase in communication between Lee and Flood in the last few weeks.
On film, Lee shows that he is incredibly strong and powerful which allows him to move bodies seamlessly off the line of scrimmage. He’s an excellent run blocker that can push opposing defensive linemen back multiple levels up while also showing the ability to be pulled when the situation calls for it.

Lee has good footwork and is surprisingly agile for a lineman of his size and stature. That agility allows Lee to thrive as a pulling blocker and a blocker out in space. He’s also able to utilize that strong lower half to hold his own in pass blocking.
Last but not least, Lee is a very versatile offensive lineman that can play multiple different positions in the trenches. His natural spot where he’s taken the most reps at John Ehret is at left guard. But he also has the size and mobility to play at the offensive tackle position.
To sum this up, Lee looks like the perfect interior offensive lineman that could fit the SEC mold that Flood and the Longhorns want as they prepare for the transition out of the Big 12 in the next couple of years. Texas should offer Lee now to strike while the iron is hot.
