Planned Braves stadium move highlights race, class

Saturday, 14 December 2013 08:09 Published in National News

ATLANTA (AP) — For the Braves, abandoning downtown Atlanta for the suburbs means moving closer to the team's fan base and developing money-making restaurants and amenities.

Team officials say it's simply good business.

Their decision also highlights long-standing disparities over wealth, where people live and transportation. Those facets of life are connected to race and social class in Atlanta. The Braves will be moving from an area that's predominantly black and relatively poor compared to whiter Cobb County — where the team says more ticket-buyers live.

Although it is long past segregation, the hometown of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King is far from integrated, and the city's politics, business and even sports teams reflect that gap. The Braves said they made their decision was not driven by race or class.

Ryan's budget plan: A bridge over the divide?

Saturday, 14 December 2013 08:07 Published in National News

WASHINGTON (AP) — Rep. Paul Ryan says his 2-year budget agreement with Democrats is the equivalent of taking a few steps in the right direction.

For Republicans lacking a clear national leader, the deal also may be a way to span the GOP's divide.

And it could put the Wisconsin Republican — his party's 2012 vice presidential nominee — in the role of bridge-builder before next year's congressional elections.

The budget plan approved by the House capped a year in which Ryan pushed his fellow conservatives to recognize the realities of divided government.

Ryan could eventually try to succeed House Speaker John Boehner or jump into the 2016 White House race.

Some conservatives oppose the deal but it could help him make the case that Ryan can get things done in divided government.

Ryan explains decision to back out of St. Louis

Saturday, 14 December 2013 08:01 Published in Local News

METAIRIE, La. (AP) — Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan says his verbal commitment to take a job in St. Louis was made hastily while he was still upset over his firing in Dallas.

He says he backed out because he owed it to himself and his family to make sure he found the best fit for his style as a coach.

Ryan says that after jumping between several jobs during the past half-decade, his next move needed to be one he believed most would last.

He says he admires Rams coach Jeff Fisher and his staff. However, Ryan points out that St. Louis uses more of a 4-3 scheme, while he prefers a 3-4 front.

On Sunday, Ryan and the Saints bring their sixth-ranked defense into St. Louis.
