When Paul Sampleton Sr. discovered his 14-year-old namesake face down on the floor, not breathing, his arms bound by duct tape, he noticed something was missing: his son’s prized pair of Air Jordan sneakers, stolen from the Grayson High School freshman’s feet after he had been shot three times in the head.
Frank Wren is out as the Braves’ general manager, not because he failed to make some nice trades, or struggled to sign good players amid budget constraints, or oversaw a minor league system that produced no talent.

MACON — Michelle Nunn and David Perdue shared the stage together Thursday for the first time in their general election battle for the U.S. Senate, and both were itching for a fight.
But while Nunn, the Democratic hopeful, targeted Perdue, the Republican candidate focused his fire on President Barack Obama.
The forum, at the Marriott City Center here, was sponsored by the Georgia Chamber of Commerce, and the questions from the audience reflected Chamber members’ interests.
Moderated by former WSB-TV anchor John Pruitt, topics covered healthcare, immigration, transportation and the military.
On nearly every topic, Nunn turned her answer toward Perdue, slamming him for “embracing” gridlock and conflict in Washington rather than working for solutions. Perdue, meanwhile, might not have even uttered Nunn’s name, and instead was focused sharply on Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev.
“I’ve been very clear about my priorities this entire campaign,” Perdue said, adding that Obamacare must be repealed. “We have to get serious about this outrageous spending.”
Nunn, however, even in her opening statement, questioned Perdue’s strategy.
She said Georgia should elect her to “send someone to Washington to focus on partnership and getting things done. That’s not what I’ve heard from David.”
