How do we get the media to retract some of these stories as happening in Smyrna? I think it gives a bad impression of Smyrna.

The address of the lady that hurt her daughter is Smyrna 30082, but it is clearly in Mableton. The school zone is Floyd Middle & South Cobb High. Many things are reportedly in Smyrna, but are clearly outside of the city limits, or what is considered by local residents to be Smyrna. As far as living in Smyrna for 8 years & not seeing a city limit sign? Seriously? There is a huge one on Atlanta Rd. at Ridge Rd. where Tires Plus is. It's been there for many years! You should really get out more often!

Brian. Smyrna's had a bad impression for years. It's just living up to it. Don't blame the media. Blame Smyrna's poor leadership.

My husband was robbed at gun point by two black males on Saturday night in the parking lot of the Glen Park apartments by the 100 building. If anyone has any information please contact Det. Tucker at the Smyrna police department.
