The vicinity of Alpharetta Georgia was once the county seat of Milton County Georgia. Milton County merged with Fulton County during the great depression because of financial difficulties. If you have looked at a map of Fulton County you have wondered how it got its odd shape. This merger is one reason.
Alpharetta is a major city in northern Fulton County. Alpha is greek for first and retta means town, so those who named the city had visions of Alpharetta being a first town. Indeed Alpharetta has not only grown to 50,000 citizens, its daytime population is more than double with its thriving business climate. Before 1858, the area was referred to as the New Prospect Camp Ground, and consisted of a few wooden structures including a school, and many tents. It was a popular trading post and alsio an area central to many cotton farms. Residents in these days were independent and industrious, with no charismatic leader taking the name, instead the generic but unique name of Alpharetta was put to the state of Georgia and approved by the legislature on December 11, 1858. Today. Georgia 400 is the main artery leading from Atlanta through old Milton County and the City of Alpharetta. To the southwest Apharetta is bordered by Roswell and by Johns Creek to the southeast. The town of Milton is to the northwest and the next major town to the northeast along Ga-400 is Cumming Georgia. Also to the southeast are a community called Big Creek and the Mathis airport, part of Suwanee or Duluth.
The Mathis Airport has a runway of 1800 feet and is governed by visual flight rules or VFR. Calling itself a barnstormers airport with a dogleg runway, it was created by the Mathis brothers sometime in the late 1950’s or early 1960’s. The current airport designator is GA47. Alpharetta has a police department located on Old Milton Parkway and six Fire Stations that provide fire and emergency services. The city also has its own Public Works and a Parks and Recreation division. Additionally Five City High Schools including Milton, Alpharetta and Chatahoochie top a robust public education system in Alpharetta, which otherwise would depend on Fulton County and its mixed bag of public schools.

Mark the Mover really appreciates what websites like Yelp.com and Kudzu.com as well as Google have accomplished with their reviews. The important websites have done a remarkable job of ‘keeping it real.’ You may have noticed that when looking at consumer reviews for products and services on the internet, sometimes you find websites and reviews that look too good to be true, and they probably are too good to be true. Even at Amazon they seem to have some credibility on the reviews, in that you will see good reviews and bad reviews. At Mark the Mover we have to admit that not all our reviews are five stars. Sometimes we don’t do as good a job as we should have done.
Consumers have come to recognize fake reviews and real reviews. One of the reasons that websites like Yelp.com tend to do a better job with reviews is that they have formulas to determine when a company is creating fake reviews for themselves. It is easy to see when every review is just too rosy, when they fall on the same day, or when all the reviewers only reviewed one company. Some of these things are apparent when we look at reviews, but other things like the address of the computer where they review was submitted are part of the internal workings of the review websites, and some websites do a better job identifying fake reviews with such information.
