Poncey-Highland eatery follows trend of raising menu prices to cover costs.
Several weeks after announcing it had to raise menu prices, the owner of Manuel's Tavern thanked his customers for their loyalty and support. "I want to thank everyone for the kind words and support for our open letter," owner Brian Maloof wrote on the venerable Poncey-Highland eatery's Facebook page. "The love shown by you has brought tears of joy and comfort to my mind. For the first time in a 6 months I did not feel alone in the struggle to secure the continuation of Manuel's." The note of heartfelt thanks follows the restaurant's Feb. 28 announcement that market conditions left him with no alternative but to raise prices. The changing landscape was so great that the restaurant, which normally would absorb those costs, could no longer …

Crespino Discusses, Signs Bio at Carter Library
Saturday, September 1, 2012
The political sins of the late South Carolina senator Strom Thurmond are notorious: he was behind the Dixiecrat Party of the late 1940s, the Southern Manifesto of 1956, the daylong filibuster in opposition to the Civil Rights Act of 1957, and the flight of white Southerners into the clutches of the Republican Party in 1968 that gave Nixon the White House. His personal sins are equally infamous, most especially his refusal to acknowledge his illegitimate African American daughter. Even before his death in 2003, historians had cast him as a curiosity of a bygone era. Emory University historian Joseph Crespino's Strom Thurmond's America is a stunning correction. Crespino shows not only that Thurmond's political sins and racial hypocrisies …
