The “Real Push”, I’ve been watching you skate since the “ATL movie”. You are the G.O.A.T of skatelyfe, so laid back and content on the floor, it’s clear that skating is your medicine for what you’re enduring. Stay strong and sexy “silver fox”!
Back in the day…late 70s early 82 my husband and I skated all the time…Leland Lanes skate & Bowling alley in Alabama…it was a great past time or a good late night date spot…skating relaxed me and kept my anxiety calm…middle 80s my kids dawned the Rollerblades…PUSH you’re a great inspiration…The videos are awesome and you glide so smooth with the sexy put in the moves…Much Skate Love to you always…
I have lived in Clayton County for over 20 years and had no idea that there were nine schools named after influential African-Americans. I absolutely love this. I cannot wait to take my neice!
So proud of Robin, she has earned every bit of this long overdue recognition, and deserves so much more.
Thank you for skating abilities, but most of all thank you for giving people hope who suffer from this syndrome. Thank you for being honest. Thank you for being a great single dad. May God bless you and keep you. A great role model.
Absolutely respect Push’s skills, style and his ability to be vulnerable. At the same time he appears to know who he is as a man and person, as his confidence (not arrogance) shows! ~ Angela (a big fan)
That’s my nephew! Love him
I’ve been a fan since a few years ago when a friend of mine showed me the “Glide with me” video. It reignited the love I used to have for skating, next to riding on the Harley, that was a feeling of freedom and expression.
I didn’t know anything at all about the guy in the video until recently, and still didn’t know much until this article, it really hit home for me, as I also have crippling anxiety, and also have been diagnosed with PTSD, those two things alone affect every aspect and facet of my life, but I’m not going to let it get the best of me. I’m going to”PUSH” through it and find my peace again. Thank you Push, for the inspiration and for sharing your story
Very inspiring story. I work as an academic advisor at Tallahassee Community College with college stude ts with exceptionalities, not disabiliies. Push is very very talented. He is the reason I picked up my skates again.
Thank you for sharing your story, your time and yourself. Keep “pushing”
I’m a huge fan of Push. What an extraordinary talented skater. I love watching his moves. What a handsome, smart, intelligent man. Keep up the amazing moves and never stop. Your breath taking and amusing to watch… Love you…
Thank you Push for overcoming your fear and sharing your story. I found you on tic tok one night. Watching you skate is relaxing for me. I hope to meet you one day.
As a huge fan of Push the more I learn about him the more I admire and see past the fame. His heart and passion as a HUMAN shows and inspires people with hope that you can be and do anything you want if you just P.U.S.H. A wonder testimony and the “world’s sexiest vanilla man on wheels”!! Keep pushing and shining for the world to see using your gift and healing in the process!
Always look forward to see your Push videos. Your amazing on the wheels ! God bless you
Your story was EPIC!it actually brought tears of joy.Its doesn’t matter what skin color you are, or disability,man look at you Now!Your skating ability is off the chain very smooth n lm a fan.keep up the good work lm so
proud of u.
I am a big fan of Push. The more I read about him the better I appreciate his style and art.
We never know what someone is going through or been through. Keep Pushing Push love your style. Poetry in motion
Your skating gives me joy and nostalgia. I loved my custom skates with blue and yellow Brook’s tennis shoes, yellow wheels and blue toe stoppers. I felt so free skating in middle school. Wish I’d continued. Thanks for spreading happiness! You are so fun to watch.
I admired you and your skating before I knew about the tourette. But admire you even more now for your strength and determination.
Thank you for sharing your journey.
Keep pushing forward and thank you for your post. I enjoy watching you skate. I wish I could skate with you one day. May God continue to keep blessing you. ❤️
Outstanding work. Skating with a purpose. Keep pushing the message in your very special way.
Keep on pushing you sexy thing lol love watching you..
We all have some type of imperfection, some visible some not. Who we are, how we see ourself & who we surround ourselves with in our journey will be our cure to peace and harmony. We were all created perfect, define perfect… Something to ponder ♥️
Huge fan of watching Push skate! I also have a neurological disorder (dystonia). Great article!!
I couldn’t tell you have Tourette’s syndrome. You’re so smooth on the skates. Continue to inspire our youths so they can be more active❤️
You are absolutely amazing. Continue to educate people with the information you have presented. You don’t realize the lives you have touched.
Keep on pushing, can’t stop now. You’ve got the strength, and it don’t make sense, not to keep on pushing. Curtis Mayfield
I love seeing this man takes his tourette syndrome and skate sexuality shows how sxy he has brought to skating if push can do it so can you good luck
What a great testimony to resilience and passion! He is also pure joy to watch skating…poetry in motion.
Thanks 4 writing that piece on Push..helps us to learn a little bit more about the man on the skates
Thank you for doing this piece, I live in New Jersey and every time I get the chance to share this story it feels great! I love the 1884
Cass, thank you for your comments. I love 1884 as well.
Tis was an interesting read. For the longest, I thought she was the owner but it cool knowing the company is taking care of the family. I wish them the best of luck.
Is he a personal chef?
I am very happy to read about Ms. Elise. I expect great things from her.
WOW, I remember seeing her on American Idol. So good to read that she is still working hard at her craft.
What a read. This was a feel real good article. Keep it going SAM.
Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey is truly a masterpiece. The smoothness and richness of every sip take your taste buds on an unforgettable journey. It’s more than just a whiskey; it’s a testament to the legacy of Nearest Green, the first African American master distiller. The attention to detail and commitment to quality shine through in every bottle. Whether enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or in a classic cocktail, Uncle Nearest never disappoints. Raise a glass to history, heritage, and exceptional whiskey. Cheers to Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey! The story on Ms Eady-Butler was just a delicious.
What an amazing piece on Vickie. I am happy to see that she is doing well.
I remember Cynia when she was in middle school. I am happy to see that she is maturing and still working on herself. She is one of the most gifted singers I have ever heard sing. Good luck to her in all of her endeavors.
You all did not disappoint with this article. I felt pride reading about how well the company has done in such a short time. I was especially delighted to learn that the business is run in most part, by women. Kudos to Uncle Nearest Premium Whiskey. I said bye-bye to Jack when I met Uncle Nearest.
What an amazing story. I felt pride learning more about the Nearest Green legacy. Just incredible, now I have to go see what the whiskey tastes like.
I really enjoyed reading this article. I never would have considered using an acronym in the way in which Mrs. Parker shares. Thank you for a great read.
That whiskey is the best I have ever had. When I heard the story, I never imagined you all would share it as well. Lucky woman,she certainly hit the jackpot!
Love everything about G. Simone Parker. I remember meeting her in New York, she is a class act.
Beyond proud of this great leader and all she’s pursued in her time with the organization! She truly is an example of being the change you wish to see!
This is silly but if you can tell Sen. Warnock that he is in my prayers and that I made my whole family vote for him, that would be awesome. Hershal Walker is not a smart man but he is a good athlete. Georgia can not stand a new knuckle head at all.
Perhaps he will do something other than spend all of our money.
Let’s go to war! Keep on kNocking! Vote Warnock! Thank you for helping the team spread the word.
This is a very informative article. I never knew the details you shared. He certainly has my vote.
Let’s get him back to work. Vote Warnock, vote now.
I really wished you all asked him about his stance with ADOS (American Decedents of Slavery). The fact that he is inclusive is one thing but what about about our struggle NOW as a result of slavery. He can miss me. I am 24 years old, I am an informed black male. Raphael Warnock is not for all of us. I do, however appreciate the fact that he helped a brother.
Let’s keep him in office.
We are so PROUD of your Accomplishments..God Bless!
I must say, I genuinely love Tammary’s entire vibe. I’ve hosted events at B’Mari as well as went to a few. When I say being there took me to a space of enlightenment, encouragement and character building, it truly did.
Tammary has went above and beyond for THE ANKHISH EXPERIENCE, LLC from hosting casting calls to rehearsal. She’s a true rock thats stern and solid and all out of pure love.
Wonderful profile of an extraordinary woman. Thanks for sharing.
I Am so proud of you stay focus keep going never give up. I love you forever. Your uncle Robert Scott Jr.
A Jewel of A Person With A Heart of Gold!
South Atlanta needed this story and I am happy that he allowed you to interview him. Great job SAM!
Wow, thank you very much for this story. I never knew the senator ‘really’ fought for something real. I appreciate that helped that young man in need.
This is a very good read. Thank you for sharing this.
I did not know of his activism. I never heard the story of him and his rise.
Senator Warnock, is more than I knew. I am a traditional voter and a conservative. I am leaning towards the good senator. He seems to make the most sense for a better Georgia.
I met him in Fayette over the weekend. I was not impressed.
Happy to see Ian get a few flowers, finally! Well deserved. Here’s to many more.
Ian Burke’s story is finally being shared. I remember how good hearted he was back in the day. Congratulations and much success to him.
Congratulations, Ian! I love this article and it’s about time people heard your incredible story. You are destined for even greater things and I wish you the best in this next phase in your life!
Motown writing Legend Elgie Stover sent me to ASCAP in Atlanta and it was Ian Burke who signed me to ASCAP . His familiar friendly but no nonsense approach is awesome in an industry of stiff stuck up individuals . Now that I am an original music for film composer and producer I look forward to working with him . IAN has always been a solid source .
What can I say… He is just the man! This cover is so well deserved.
Ian knowledge and keen A&R ears and Approach to the artist needs and his able to translate as a music executive in the industry has made a power house to be around and a joy to work with for many years.
I learned a lot.
We were just listening to the Teacha when someone asked if we’d read this article. Nice job, good read!
Really good advice for people who need to know.
I met him in the dealership once. He seems like a nice person. The article is a good read.
This man should go downing history as one of the best. Happy to see him rising again.
Ian Burke is one of my personal heroes. He moved behind the scenes. He changed so many lives. I hope those artists realize his magic and are sharing the wealth.
With all of that said, are you going to run for sheriff again? Clayton County isn’t worth you. They deserve the corrupt man. You and your wife should have left that place a long time ago.
We all know you can please some of the people some of the time but not all of the people all of the time. With that in mind, I will support a candidate who considers not just ethnicity but also every age bracket. Think about it….Seniors pour a lot of money into the PTC economy. They need to be considered as an asset and not just discussed in regards to housing. People who lived here when you were a little guy…many of those are still here. It is home to them…many for 50 years. They were the pioneers, the visionaries, who made it the amazing town it is. I hope they will be considered when revamping things “in the name of progress.” Too often they are the forgotten….the very ones who made the community what it is.
People want to live here NOW for a reason. They like the present lifestyle or they most likely wouldn’t be here. SO SOMETHING I WORKING. I will not vote for anyone who wants to make overnight, radical changes to PTC just because it is a “cool concept”. Baby steps are much more palitable for many people. Positive and meaningful change comes in stages. I look forward to reading the platform of each candidate.
Finally, I want a city council who listens to the people. Seriously listens. And please…..who in the world wants more traffic on 54??? I cannot believe someone had the idea of building a bunch of apts, condos, etc (housing ) near Aberdeen. Traffic is already backed up from 54/74 intersection to the library!!!!! Who in their right mind would add more housing in that area????????? And please…can we get a better police presence on the paths, especially Battery Park and Drake Field? Can we do something about the fact that PTC residents pay taxes in order to give us these wonderful spots yet on the weekends parking is filled with cars from out of county, so much that there arent enough spaces for PTC residents?
Every community has it’s inherent issues. PTC is no different but none have what we have here. We are unique. Let’s keep it nice, clean, green, safe, and fun!!!! It is (still) magic, like the sign in my yard says. 🙂 I’m proud to live here.
Ian Burke is the coolest dude I ever met in the entertainment world. Happy to see someone spotlighting him. Looking forward to the bio-doc.
Ian Burke, it is about time he got his flowers. I have not seen anything else wrwritten about him, ever. Even when that TLC move was out.
Love me some TLC, finally happy to meet the man who envisioned that kind of girl group.
Congratulations on your successful career. Generally, your service is great.
I sure hope that you all can get him over here to South Atlanta.
Thank you for doing this story on the one and only ONE! I listen in on his hiphop temple every now and again.
Wow after reading its article, I see that Hawes was a real threat to Hill. I hope he runs again.
KRS1 the one and only the true Teacha
Yea, he is a dreamweaver, I wish I’d met him bak in the day.
very informative article.
The King of HipHop, the one hand only. Really good read.
His Facebook posts are really cool. He seems like a smart guy who really knows about policing. His suggestions could easily be implemented.
The Teacha! Word. Great article.
Wonderful read!! Enjoyed every bit of it.
I just learned about his Youtube channel Temple of Hip Hop.
Having lived in Peachtree City for 34 years, been a councilman, Mayor and state arbitrator, I am very concerned for the direction Peachtree City is heading.
Considering all the issues confronting PTC, I am declaring for Mayor of Peachtree City.
Our priorities should be:
1. Police and fire: safety.
2. Streets and paths: every day driving, golf carts, walking, running, cycling, and related activities.
3. Spending: what we spend, where the money comes from and is it being spent efficiently. Needs versus wants.
4. Village concept, not LCI.
5. Preservation of green space and city planning.
6. Restoration of the planning commission.
7. Removal of city employees from the CVB.
8. Rewrite the WASA charter and remove elected from the board.
9. Review and rewrite zoning ordinances to eliminate precedence that allows developers to force unwanted development.
10. Defend First Amendment rights.
11. Understand state law forbids city government from performing economic development.
12. Traffic: the unfortunate reality is that we have no real solution to traffic congestion. Tyrone wants nothing to do with routing traffic through their city. Coweta has never been willing to assist Peachtree City. They have always wanted to dump their traffic through us. GDOT is not going to take any measures for us.
Many changes to 74/54 have been proposed. But none of them do anything to reduce traffic through Peachtree City. In fact, they make it worse. One proposal that will help somewhat is to connect Fischer Road to 85, but Coweta is not interested, leaving building a skyway from the east side of the city into Coweta with no ramps. Ambitious yet unattainable.
After all the issues we have seen over the last eight years we can no longer afford apathy or more of the same. Peachtree City is not a resort city, it is our home. It is time to defend it and return it to the vision that made PTC such a success, not an extension of Atlanta.
Good story. Interesting to hear from this perspective.
This article was interesting from many sides. I remember seeing his wife get arrested. After reading this story I kind of understand why Victor Hill wanted him out. He was an ‘elite’ officer. SWAT and reddog. I lived in Clayton county long enough to remember Hill when he was a police officer with Clayton County and when he became sheriff I moved. I still follow the news there. You all did a good job on profiling Mr. Hawes. For people who pay attention they know why Victor Hill was intimidated. Hill is a low level Trump, Hitler, and every other tyrant that ever STOLE power. He is a manipulator and it is a crime that all those people believe in Lil Vic. Looks like those people like the position, I mean Kool aide.
Please tell me where I can get copy of this issue. Does KRS-One live over here too?
What up doe Krs? I’m still waiting to hear from you
The overwhelming majority of Peachtree City is not being heard, just look at the turnout for the General Election last November vs. the turnout for the last municipal race.
Now to be fair, that’s kind of our own fault for not voting but all things considered, why bother to vote if none of the candidates is even trying to represent you.
My goal is to dramatically increase turnout by inviting all of our potential electorate to participate in the process, asking them to vote for me for a better future and giving them opportunities to engage in our local political process.
On to the topic of apartments,
I grew up in Peachtree City’s multi family housing; first in what was then called Gables Court and then Cobblestone Condominiums once my single mom could afford it.
You see l, we lived in Van Ness of of Battery Way until my parents divorced but my mom wanted to keep us in “the bubble” so she did what she had to do to make that happen. That included living in multi family housing so I’m not going to belittle her efforts or my own upbringing because some people think anything other than single family detached homes are filled with transients or whatever other adjective they deem appropriate.
On my policy position, I’m not in favor of large footprint, high volume apartment complexes. Not because of the “type of people” who live there but simply because the scaled economics required for upkeep and upgrades becomes a massive fiscal hurdle that is hard to get over.
I am however in favor of appropriately built and priced housing that gives both;
– the people currently commuting into this city for work a place they can afford to live. This accomplishes a few things.
1. This will reduce traffic from those commuting into the city.
2. It will increase our tax revenue through property taxes, splost and other sources of revenue.
– the older generation of people currently living in this city a reasonable step down from their large footprint homes while also allowing them an opportunity to stay in the city they clearly love.
This accomplishes a few things;
1. It allows our senior residents a chance to stay in the city they’ve invested their lives in.
2. It allows our senior residents to make good financial decisions regarding their housing situation; whereby they might not see wisdom in selling their 3,200 square foot home for $500k just to turn around and buy a 1,500 square foot home for $400k+ in places like Cresswind.
3. It gets those senior residents who are taking the senior tax abatement out of high priced homes where the reduction in our school boards budget is most impacted per household.
4. It provides an opportunity for young families to buy a home they can grow into AND also pay the full rate thereby ensuring funding for one of our top local attractions, our school system.
I hope this gives you some greater clarity on my stance.
Feel free to shoot me a message on Facebook or a text so we can talk further if you’d like.
Thank you for your gracious words, it’s my hope to do just that, restore Peachtree City’s identity, bringing back and empowering the Villages to evolve into modern day community gathering spaces!
the Teacha!!!!!!!! #myphilosy
Man, Ian Burke, the legend the man. I remember when I met him. A cool dude.
KRS-One! This was a great reminder of what hiphop is intended for. Thank you for the story.
Much love to KRS1.
Nick has the right vision for this town. We’ve had 10 years of failed ideas from the same group of political retreads who are simply out of touch with the past and present of the people here. We need to restore the Villages Concept that Joel Cowan put in place at the beginning. We need to encourage organic civic participation like there used to be. We need to revitalize the robust small business culture that once drove this community. That’s why I’m voting for Nick.
Who in PTC is not being heard? Also, earlier in your campaign, weren’t you supporting building apartments/“affordable” housing? That would get ZERO support from me and many others I know. Comment?
It is hard to believe that he did not promote himself more. What he did with those artists is miraculous. I would have never known who he was if you all did not share this story. Salute Mr. Burke.
I’m so sorry you’ve experienced that!
Everything rises and falls based on leadership, and that includes tone.
I promise, when I win, to set a new tone for out city’s future.
I am happy to know that a young person is competing for this seat. They need some young people and people of color to help show diversity and equality. Good luck to him.
I thought only racists live in that city. I won’t go there after dark. It is a very scary place for Asian Americans. Good Luck to the candidate.
I am happy to see Ian Burke get his flowers. He is so deserving and is very long over due. Job well done to you and your team.
Look at this KRS-One on the cover of South Atlanta Magazine! Congrats! Job Well done.
What a surprise to catch this article on my Facebook timeline. Thanks for sharing.
WOW! Incredible story. I’d been wondering when he was going to pop back up! So happy he made it and is doing good.
Look at what SAM is doing! KRS-One in the flesh! Great story.
Class is BACK in session! The Teacha is now sharing wisdom. Great interview.
I did not realize who this was until I saw all of the artists he produced/managed. And I bet this isn’t even half of the story. This is a good look. Congratulations on this BIG interview.
The real MC. KRS1! Seeing this article took me back to when it was real hiphop. The message in the rap. I am not mad at the youngins but they have a lot to learn about how music can create and then move a culture. Thank you for the story.
Incredible story. I felt like I was right in the vault with you. KRS is an absolute legend. I would have never known about Malcolm X at the age I did if I did not listen to his music. Back then I did not realize that I was being infused with thought that would shape my thinking about being black in America. Thank you Teacha, you are still dope.
Does KRS live in Atlanta now? D.E.A.T.H, never thought about it like that. I love that quote. Very happy to see that he is still in the game. Hats off to him. This is great! Love the story. Excellent writing.
Incredible! The legend…the Teacha KRS-One! I am so happy to see that KRS1 is still working to educate the community. His style of rap always inspired me. He had something to say that was real. I admire his journey. Continued blessing to him.
Ian Burke, NO way! Ian Burke. Man he is one of the original OG’s. He is a legend in Atlanta. I can’t wait to see his documentary. When is it coming out? What platform can I see it on? I will never forget how they barley mentioned him in the TCL biopic. If it wasn’t for him, we would not have TLC. Job well done. Good article.
Not his last dance at ALL! I believe this is the beginning of something really strong for Mr. Burke. I am so happy you featured his story in this issue. I am shocked that he interviewed. I never heard much about until I started doing research on the Atlanta sound back int he day.
Boogie Down Production! yea Baby!
I see the Teacha is still keeping it real. I was so shocked that he is still giving interviews. Glad he did. He should do a movie on his life. Reading is cool but video is better.
If only I could have been in the room when this interview was happening! Damn, KRS1 still killing the game. Good for him.
How can I get a hard copy of this?
still keeping it where it should be REAL! Great read!
The Teacha, hiphop’s philosopher. So good, seeing a story on him. Glad to know that he is still in the game. He should do a HipHop master class or something.
I really enjoyed learning more about the man behind the Atlanta musics sound. Thanks for a well written article.
Good read. Congrats Rich!
I have been ordering where Ian was and what he’s been up to. Thank you for this cover.
Marie’s passion comes through in her work. Keeping on doing your thing…..I get so many compliments on the headshot she took for me a few years ago.
As a resident of Henry County I am thankful for your service record and all that you can do for the county.
Finally, help for the southside. I hope that she stays. All the good people seem to leave Clayton County. I am one of those that moved out but I still keep up with the community and wish it well.
This is a timely, timeless piece. Relevant, so so relevant.
This was an interesting read. But is it really that big of a deal that you have to have commentary about getting a ‘hair-cut”?
Ramona.. You are such a special Lady and a wonderful Inspiration! Keep, Charlton dancing!
Awesome Story, Awesome Lady! Congratulations Ramona
I would like to become active in Clayton County NAACP.
