First Slice 11-29-12: Healthy food at Hartsfield-Jackson

APD homicide arrests, guns in court, and more


1. Atlanta’s own Hartsfield-Jackson Airport has earned the rank of #12 healthiest airport in the country, according to a report from the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine. More than half of the airport’s 78 restaurants offer at least one low-fat, high-fiber, cholesterol-free meal on their menus.

2. Pro tip: If you’re going to the DeKalb County courthouse - or any courthouse for that matter - be sure to leave your gun at home.

3. Atlanta Police homicide investigators have been on a role this week. In addition to making an arrest in a months-old Grant Park homicide, at a press conference yesterday APD Lt. Paul Guerrucci announced arrests in two other recent high-profile murders. Investigators picked up Shaheed Huff, 30, in connection with a brazen daytime shooting death of Graham Sisk, 23, at the corner of Moreland Avenue and Ponce de Leon in early October. Orlando Hawkins, 21, has been charged with murder in connection with a late night shooting outside a Midtown nightclub that claimed the life of 24-year-old More Brooks, also in early October.

4. The Environmental Protection Agency banned oil giant of Deepwater Horizon fame BP yesterday from receiving federal contracts due to it’s “lack of business integrity” following the 2010 spill in the Gulf.
