Elizabeth M.Bounds
. With nearly30 years of prisonministries experience,Bounds believes pas-sionately that people can reformand has advocated for restorative justice.Her advocacy, though, goes beyond article writing andspeech making. The EmoryUniversity Christian ethics professor has been teachinga range of theology coursesto incarcerated women at therecently closed Metro StatePrison in unincorporatedDeKalb. And she has collab-orated with the Rev.

Her trenchant socialethical analysis connects issues of race, gender, class and sexuality tocontemporary issues.”A modest Bounds, who earneda master’s and doctorate fromthe seminary, was unaware thatshe had been nominated and was“pleasantly surprised” that shewon.Candler’s Dean

 by Daniel Beauregarddaniel@dekalbchamp.comA new mixed-use develop-ment in south DeKalb hopesto be a catalyst in revital-izing an area off CovingtonHighway that city ofcialssay has been long in need of increased services.Panola Slope, a develop-ment consisting of 22 brown-stones and 15 retail locationson the ground oor, is slatedto open in the spring and will be the rst of its kind in thearea.“South DeKalb isn’t reallyenjoying the same amenitiesthat they are enjoying in thePerimeter and Lenox areas.So, this being the rst sitewhere residents and retail cancohabitate, I think it’s goingto be a real important state-ment for our area,”
, CEO of neghborhoodrevitalization rm APD Solu-tions, said.
It’s semi-built because itwas foreclosed on before itwas nished,” Irons said of the complex. “It was owned by three different banks,which prevented it from re-ally being able to come back into commerce. We wereable to negotiate with allthree banks, put it under oneownership, and work withthe county to establish a newvision for Covington High-way.”At a groundbreaking cer-emony on Nov. 11, Irons toldthe crowd that to ourish theneighborhood would needcommunity support. Ironsand his staff then handed outcards for a time capsule, ask-ing that each resident presentwrite down what he or shehopes for the community inthe future.“In exactly 11 years on Nov. 11, 2022, we will come back to this thriving site andthis thriving community andwe will open that time cap-sule and we will see what youall had to tell them,” Ironssaid. The capsule was later  buried at the top of a staircase by the main building and cov-ered with bricks.DeKalb County Commis-sioner 
Lee May
said that hewas glad to see the complex,which has sat vacant for the past three years, nally being put to use.“The reality is, people aresometimes scared to bringsome projects to this part of the county; they feel it’s toorisky,” May said. “This corri-dor is in need of developmentand revitalization.”Irons said that PanolaSlope recently signed its rstretail establishment, a spe-cialty bakery and sandwichshop, and there are severalother contracts in the worksincluding a white-linen Italianrestaurant.When the establishmentwas rst built, Irons said thehousing units were listed at$449,000 but now they rangefrom $199 to $244,000. Healso said that there is down payment assistance availablefrom the county and other as-sistance APD will provide for those interested in the homes.
Leonardo McClarty,
 president of the DeKalbChamber of Commerce,
echoed both May and Ironsand said he hoped the com- plex would kick off a stringof similar developments inthe area.“I think Vaughn said it allin that it would be a catalystfor future development,” Mc-Clarty said. “At the end of theday, regardless of backgroundand ethnicity, people want tohave the same thing—theywant to have services andquality development in their community.”
