First Slice 6/11/12: KKK group wants to 'adopt' highway segment

The Ku Klux Klan say theyre here to help

1. State officials are in an awkward position after Union County's International Keystone Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, which sources tell us is one of Georgia's many book clubs, filed paperwork to adopt a section of highway along Route 515 near the North Carolina border. Options include shutting down the program, denying the application and bracing for a court battle, or telling the exalted cyclops and the gang "congrats."

2. Megachurch pastor Dr. Creflo Dollar Jr. told a packed World Changers International Church on Sunday that he never should have been arrested early Friday morning for allegedly assaulting his 15-year-old daughter during an argument. "Raising children in our culture of disrespect is a challenge," Dollar told members of the College Park megachurch on Sunday, according to 11Alive. "Like all of us who are parents [know], there are times when discipline and training our kids can become pretty intense." Dollar claims his did not punch or choke his daughter and that there were no scratches on her skin, as Fayette County Sheriff's deputies reported - just "prior skin abrasions from eczema."

3. The Marietta Daily Journal sat down with Gov. Nathan Deal this weekend to discuss the $1 billion Northwest Corridor Project which envisions building "reversible lanes" along I-75 and 575 in Cobb County to manage congestion. Construction on the road project could begin next year and open in 2018, around the same time the world will be out of gasoline.
