Athens Power Rankings for the Week of Mar. 9

Welcome to Athens Power Rankings. In the spirit of sports rating systems, through painstaking analysis, we rank the top movers and shakers in the Classic City each week. Who’s hot? Who’s not? Find out below.

1. Brett Atchley

The CEO of AthCon—scheduled for this weekend at the Classic Center—is expanding the sci-fi/comics convention. Read more in this week’s Flagpole cover story.

2. Tim Denson

The former mayoral candidate has been a busy little bee, going straight from bonding out of jail for protesting in Atlanta to the Athens-Clarke County Commission meeting last Tuesday, where he agitated for Sunday bus service.

3. Tim and Carrie Kelly

They’re starting a board game cafe downtown, and from the looks of the Facebook feedback, it’s going to be a hit.

4. Bain Mattox

The unofficial Mayor of Normaltown stays on the list for a second straight week. Look for a review of Automatic Pizza on Wednesday.

5. Knowa and Mokah Johnson

Check out a photo gallery of the third annual Athens Hip Awards, organized by the Johnsons.
