The trial of former Atlanta Public Schools Superintendent Beverly Hall, whose been accused of playing a lead role in the school system's 2009 cheating scandal, will be delayed until August so she can continue to receive treatments for Stage IV breast cancer. "She's under a great deal of stress. She wants to go forward and try and vindicate herself if her body allows and if her strength allows," Hall attorney Richard Deane says. "But this is something that her doctors have made clear - that she just was in no position to go forward."

Days after jurors awarded $700,000 to Stacey Kalberman, Georgia's former state ethics commission who was reportedly forced out of office in retribution for launching a problem into Gov. Nathan Deal's campaign, the governor has decided to overhaul the state's commission. "It has been an ineffective commission for a very long period of time," Deal yesterday said in Athens. "Just recently I think we heard they have not disposed of a single case in many, many months, which in my opinion is inexcusable."

Invest Atlanta has put out a call for proposals for a mixed-used, transit-oriented development around the Edgewood-Candler Park station along DeKalb Avenue.
