Atlanta soul legend Gladys Knight is no longer affiliated with a chain of restaurants that has carried her name since the 1990s. Gladys Knight Chicken and Waffles will now be called World Famous Chicken and Waffles, according to a report at AJC. Knight filed suit against the operator, which happens to be her son Shanga Hankerson, last year after he was arrested on tax evasion charges. The Downtown restaurant also failed another health inspection this week.
Keep Atlanta Beautiful Commission, a division of the Department of Public Works and a Keep America Beautiful affiliate, received the President’s Circle Award which recognizes affiliates committed to ending littering, improving recycling and beautifying their local community.
