Fortunately for Georgia, supernatural problems may be handled quickly and professionally by these guys:

The Georgia Ghostbusters

Something big is in the works, according to Governor Deal. It’s being touted as possibly the “largest new-business opportunity for the state of Georgia since Kia.” Who’s the employer? That’s a mystery.

More women are going back to school to get additional education, while more men are snatching up the few available jobs. Speaking of jobs, do you want to see my resume?

Meanwhile, RAFB workers are “voluntarily” retiring.

Troup County Schools are doing something right. The Georgia Department of Education recognizes thirteen schools for their success.

Atlantians . . . Atlantites . . . Fiddle Sticks. People in Metro Atlanta survive “Windpocalypse,” though many lose power.

The Food Lion’s roar is about to be fainter. Sorry, I didn’t want to make a joke about paw prints.

A drunk driver is brought to justice in southwester Georgia, thanks to hard work by the District Attorney’s Office. As an aside, the Judge who sentenced him has recently been arrested for . . . . a DUI!

Not in Georgia, but close enough, Romney is in Aiken, South Carolina today. And the Bibb County Chairman of his campaign recently spoke with a local tv station.

Keep. This. Snake. Away. From. Planes. . . or Plains.

    In regards to Food Lion closing stores, I wonder if this will include any Harveys Supermarkets (since they are owned by Food Lion’s parent company). They also sell the Food Lion store brands at Harveys.

    On the other hand, the company owns 3 supermarkets in Waycross; 1 Food Lion and 2 Harveys Supermarkets, so this was likely just done to save operating expenses and to keep the stores from competing against each other (all 3 are within a mile of each other).

    Surprise! The Feds have decided to replace Yucca Mountain with Stone Mountain.

  3. Audi was looking to build a plant. I have talked to a couple of VW/Audi upper guys today and they have said they know nothing about it, and if it did happen, they would most likely be the last to know. Disclaimer: I work for VW/Audi

  4. The first gen new beetles are ok, depending on engine choice. I heard from a fairly reliable source it will be America, most likely Southeast. Audi does not want to water down the brand with “assembled in Mexico” on the sticker.
