First Slice 5-26-14: Cobb Braves stadium vote takes place tomorrow

Plus, MARTA brawl


  • Atlanta Braves
  • Surrounding the stadium on the hill is complete darkness

The Cobb County Commission tomorrow night will decide whether the county should take on nearly $400 million in debt to help build the proposed Atlanta Braves stadium. Surprised by the meeting announcement? Details about the vote, which will be followed by the issuance of the bonds later this year, were released after 6 p.m. on Friday. You won't hear any criticism about the sudden vote from the transparency champions at the Marietta Daily Journal, however.

R.I.P., Arianna Sikes, former Atlanta City Council policy adviser.

MARTA officials are investigating a brawl that recently erupted on a train and left a transgendered woman naked. One of the women involved in the scuffle claims she was targeted because she was transgendered.

Shed a tear for Bliss, one of Atlanta's all-male strip clubs. It has closed its doors.

Beware fake tickets for graduation events!

Finally, happy Memorial Day. The CL compound is closed until tomorrow. We'll see you then unless major news breaks.
