Lake Claire Fight To Save “Grandma Gorden” Continues

Wow, this story really brings me back.   Gotta link back all the way to February 2008 to unearth the last piece of DM coverage of this issue.

In yesterday’s AJC, Jamie Gumbrecht headed over to the oft spray-painted trees along DeKalb Ave in Lake Claire, asking “What ever happened to…Grandma Gorden?”.

More specifically, what happened with that dispute between a property owner and area residents over a small patch of greenspace that is also the home of a named, elderly pecan tree?

And even though, we’ve since entered into what’s now commonly referred to as the “Great Recession”, it sounds like the legal battle is still going on.
