Guerry Clegg: Braves’ news has been depressing

It might seem unconventional that something traditionally meaningless can mean even less. Unconventional? Welcome back, Atlanta Braves. They threw convention out sixteen months ago when they started disassembling the roster piece by piece and rebuilding for 2017 at the earliest.

Guerry Clegg: No joke. Norton, Lady Cougars doing OK

Doctors eventually ruled out a heart attack but determined that his collapse was stress related. So the Lady Cougars just started blowing teams out. They did it again Saturday, crushing Young Harris 68-49 for their sixth consecutive win. The average margin of victory in that span: 16.3 points.

Guerry Clegg: Falcons have plenty of areas to fix

Seems like it was forever ago that the Atlanta Falcons were relevant. Five consecutive winning seasons, four of them leading to the playoffs. Just one win -- and possibly just 10 yards -- away from returning to the Super Bowl for only the second time in franchise history.

New senior housing community described as a 'cathedral for God's children'

Officials hosted Wednesday morning a grand opening celebration for Patriot Pointe, the city's new public housing complex for senior citizens. The senior community replaces the old Chapman Homes housing area and offers one- and two- bedroom apartments to residents 55 years of age and older. The complex is part of a two-pronged project that includes the demolition of the Booker T. Washington Apartments at Victory Drive and Veterans Parkway and the building of a new public housing complex on the northern end of that land. The southern end, fronting Victory, Veterans, Fifth Street and Sixth Avenue is planned to be used for commercial development.
