Iconic Nu-Way plans for reopening after fire still on hold

A year and a half after flames destroyed Macon’s iconic Cotton Avenue Nu-Way restaurant, it’s still unclear when the eatery might reopen and begin selling hotdogs again. The eatery shared a wall with another building, then-occupied by the Spivey, Pope, Green & Greer law firm. Gateway 75 LLC, owners of the neighboring building, have filed a lawsuit seeking payment from their insurer, Seneca Insurance Co. Nu-Way’s president, Jim Cacavias, said the restaurant company is waiting to see what will happen to the Gateway 75 building and with the possible development of the Willie C. Hill Government Annex building across the street before reopening downtown.

Golfing legend Arnold Palmer, 87, dies

Palmer rose from a blue-collar background to become part of the sport’s royalty – he was colloquially known on the PGA tour as “The King” – and frequent playing partner of U.S. presidents. He left an indelible mark on the world of golf in the form of nearly 300 signature – designed courses, and Arnold Palmer Enterprises, which handled his endorsements and other ventures, helped make Palmer the first golfer to make his name a worldwide franchise.

A farewell to golf legend Arnold Palmer, who died Sunday

For the last several decades of his life, Arnold Palmer had shown up at golf tournaments without much of a game and no chance to win. He would shoot his 80’s and 82’s, frown at the bogeys and smile at the crowds, and we would nod and say, “Good for you, Arnie.” The fact is, if he shot 90 or 100, he was still Arnie and that’s what we came to see. Him, not his birdies.
