GNB Update

Thanks for logging on to GNB for this mid-week...Here's the news...

Governor Sonny Perdue stands up for Columbus and NCR. reports that the governor came to the west Georgia city's defense Tuesday. The battle centers on whether or not federal stimulus money can be used to move NCR headquarters to Georgia. Vice President Joe Biden says those funds can't be used. The Ohio-based ATM manufacturer is opening a facility in Columbus later this year.

Albany is looking for a new downtown manager. The Albany Herald reports that city manager Alfred Lott fired Don Buie Wednesday morning. Buie was given the chance to resign, but refused, and was fired. The dismissal comes as the GBI continues its investigation into the alleged mismanagement of funds by Buie.

More of your federal stimulus dollars at work. reports that a stretch of the Fall Line Freeway will be built with federal stimulus money. The project will complete an unfinished stretch of the highway between Augusta and Columbus.
