Resurgence of Braves fans about to emerge

January 29, 2013

With Spring Training just weeks away, I can’t be picked on too much for writing a baseball column.
Some might raise issue since we haven’t gotten the Super Bowl played, but since there are no southern teams involved in that game, I’ll take the liberty of skipping ahead to the diamond.

Stretch of highway could be named after Turner, Gibbs

January 29, 2013

You’ve got to admit it. Having a street, road or highway named after you is a pretty amazing honor and means you’ve gone out of your way for the community and done something entirely remarkable for lots of people.
It’s something that makes your family smile every time they drive past the sign and something that the honoree can be proud of and humbled by whether they’re still living or have passed on.
