    An east Atlanta gym is receiving backlash after the owner posted a sign on the window prohibiting police officers and military members from obtaining a membership. The sign gained attention when a former service member saw it on the window of EAV Barbell Club with profanity, and reported it to media outlets. The owner of the gym, Jim Chambers, claims the policy was put in place because the minority population he serves are uncomfortable in the presence of law enforcement. Chambers claims this policy has been in place since the gym opened. The self-proclaimed political activist told media outlets he...

    The federal judge presiding over the case of accused National Security Agency leaker Reality Winner has come down on prosecutors’ side in a dispute over rules of evidence, which defense attorneys have said could jeopardize her right to a fair trial. In a ruling Thursday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Brian Epps said defense attorneys cannot talk about classified information in open court, even if it has already been published in the news media. Epps granted prosecutors’ motion for a protective order designed to keep an alleged leaker from leaking further, and to force those defending her to tread lightly, lest they...

    According to Senator Ted Cruz, CNN’s threats to dox the Reddit user who created the Trump wrestling CNN video could be a violation of Georgia law. CNN discovered the identity of the Reddit user who made the video and essentially threatened to reveal his identity if he continued to post unsavory content. Cruz said if CNN tracked down the Reddit user through his IP address and then used that information to threaten him, they could be in violation of a Georgia law. CNN headquarters are located in Atlanta, GA. The GA Code explains that someone could be guilty of “Theft...

    A group of Georgia voters and a Colorado-based watchdog organization filed a lawsuit late Monday asking a judge to overturn the results of last month's 6th Congressional District special election and scrap the state's voting system, Colorado Politics has learned. The complaint, filed in Fulton County Superior Court, alleges that state and local election officials ignored warnings for months that Georgia's centralized election system — already known for potential security flaws and lacking a paper trail to verify results — had been compromised and left unprotected from intruders since at least last summer, casting doubt on Republican Karen Handel's 3.8-point...

At the time, you could get married at the age of 15 -- provided you had the consent of your parents or guardian -- and, thanks to Ringgold's 45-minute blood test, you could get married quickly. Word got out rapidly, and this tiny little town just over the Tennessee state line became known as the marriage mecca of the Southeast and the mid-Atlantic. It fulfilled the hasty youthful heart...
