The Man With a Million Acres
Topic: Local Information 5:23 pm EDT, Oct 27, 2012

Who knew?
He's from Kentucky, makes his own bourbon, drives a Ford pickup—and flies in a private plane. These are some of the few details that have emerged about Brad Kelley, 55, a deeply private billionaire. Reclusive billionaire Brad Kelley is hardly ever photographed. He doesn't use email. And he owns more land than the state of Rhode Island.

His primary home is in Franklin, Tenn., where he lives with his wife, Susan, and his three daughters. He bought his 8,176-square-foot house with a swimming pool and a tennis court on 26 acres in 2003 for $1.9 million.

PSA: Be careful who you give your Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder keys to
Topic: Local Information 8:56 pm EDT, Apr  4, 2009

Imagine this scenario: You've gone out of town for whatever reason, driving your Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder. (If we had a Gallardo, you'd bet that taking road trips would be high on the agenda). Anyway, you get to your hotel, surrender your supercar's keys to the valet, and go on with your business. When it's time to leave, they go to retrieve your car and ... it's gone. That nightmare is just what happened to Eric Vargosko when he took his droptop lambo to Atlanta's Intercontinental Hotel. The swank hotel in the upscale Buckhead neighborhood was the last place Vargosko saw his car until it turned up a month later, damaged.

Just as disturbingly, the hotel has refused to talk to Vargosko, and the media isn't having any better luck with them or the Atlanta police. With WWSB TV's consumer reporter on the case, a police report was unearthed which stated that a hotel security camera recorded a valet handing the Lamborghini's keys to two men in the wee hours of the morning. Whether the two men, part of a larger group of seven that had been recorded by the camera while exiting an SUV at 3:30 AM, were thieves or acquaintances of the valet is unknown. Denied satisfaction on the issue thus far, Vargosko's hired an attorney, and will be avoiding the Intercontinental during future travels.

Airlines threaten to move flights from Atlanta
Topic: Local Information 5:37 pm EST, Jan 19, 2009

The master lease agreements that apply to airlines at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport do not expire until September 2010, but talks between the sides have already heated up.

Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines Inc., the world's biggest carrier, and discount carrier AirTran Airways, a unit of Orlando, Fla.-based AirTran Holdings Inc., say that if their costs are too high they may be forced to move some connecting flights to other airports.
