December 2018 amed Time is one ~ ; time stolen from is ite q : 10 Reporter Well, glad to see de Jonah's on Johnston got to re-open after a little song and dance with the health inspec- tor. You know restaurant owners have to be careful with that ole boy -- our inspector, Larry Emery, played football for the Atlanta Falcons back in the day. Really! Now he's taking out germs and unhealthy kitchens like they're members of the New Orleans Saints. Emery returned kicks back in the day, and was pretty good at it in a day when the Falcons weren't good at much! That's one thing the new owner of Jonah's has in common with the health inspector -- they both played college sports. The new Jonah's owner, Eric Thomas, played soccer in college and won four state championships coaching a high school up in DeKalb County. Jonah's is putting in a lot of new T Vs for sports, so guess you can watch soccer OR football. Hey, you got New Year's plans yet?
