Turning Year: Waiting for call of the cuckoo
Palestine in the year 303.
There must have been something about George, because 200 years later churches in Jerusalem and Antioch were dedicated to him. Icons portrayed him as a powerful defender against evil, with more than a hint of St Michael.
Richard I, the Lionheart, discovered the saint’s cult during the first Crusade in 1089. By 1530, there were St George’s Day processions in England’s major towns. But we lost our national day in the Reformation, when the veneration of saints was condemned.
There have been attempts at revival; one begun in the late 1800s gained ground into the 1930s. St George’s supporters came to the fore again in the 1990s, when there were fears about devolution and being drawn into a federal Europe.
Now, having rejected the possibility of a disUnited Kingdom, our relationship with the European Union is a hot topic once again. No sign of the dragon-slayer this time, though.

Bill Torpy at Large: All murders matter. The spotlight's just brighter on this one.
Bonnybrook neighborhood association (president). And so on.
He was the father of two and heavily involved in Antioch Baptist Church.
Simms was plugged in socially and politically. At the helm of the city’s liquor board, he was involved in very cantankerous proceedings to close some nightclubs in the early 200os, most notably, the gay-club Backstreet. It was a move that helped open up that area of Midtown to high-end development and curbed street crime. He was accused of doing the city’s bidding, although he’d note he was simply going by the book.
After putting a stake in Backstreet’s heart, he was called to the Atlanta Housing Authority to help orchestrate the break-up of the city’s projects, an emotional and controversial undertaking.
“He had quite a juggling act on his hands,” said community activist Joe Beasley, a friend and churchmate who bitterly disagreed with Simms on this one. Beasley said Simms was brought into the job “because he didn’t rub people the wrong way. He got along with people in all aspects of life. That’s an art.”
It’s an art for which he was well compensated — $236,385 a year before leaving office.
Remember, the urbane Simms might have been a giver, but he was no dummy.
But he never did forget the little things.
Neighbor Elfert Jackson said Simms was the first one to greet him after moving in, as did Rebecca Walker. Next door to her is Donald Richardson. Simms gave the eulogy for Richardson’s wife, Mahalia. Simms planted flowers for neighbors, got dumpsters for community cleanups, organized block parties. The lawns are all cut, the streets are litter free, the homes are well-tended. I found two instances where residents stopped break-ins from happening to their neighbors.
This is a neighborhood with pride in appearance. More so, it’s a community. Residents afford him a lot of credit.
Simms’ good heart sometimes worried neighbors. Walker said she’d pass his home and sometimes see sketchy guys helping with yard work. “I wouldn’t have done it,” she said. “But he was trying to help people who were down.”
He was burglarized at least a couple times.
Upon volunteering for Atlanta Victim Assistance, Simms bore in on the founder, Brenda Muhammad, to understand what it feels to be a victim. Her son was shot to death in an argument over a coat in 1989. The other teen, who also was black, was acquitted. She organized and has lobbied to make prosecutions tougher and to uplift victims.
Twenty five years ago, after Muhammad founded her first organization, my old colleague Cynthia Tucker wrote that the grieving mother “bravely stepped forward to provide courageous leadership on an issue African-American leaders have too long ignored: the war at home.”
The rate of killing has abated since but a frustrated Muhammad told me, “they talk about crime being down but it feels more heinous.
“We’ve been talking about it for too long. We just keep talking about it.”
