GNB Update

The first Friday post in a while...Here's what's happening going into the weekend...

Some new development near one Georgia campus. The board of trustees at Mercer University approved the plan Friday. It will cost $10 million to build. The new facilities on the Macon campus include a mix of residential and retail development.

Expect more hard times in 2010. That's the word from Georgia's school chief. Georgia school superintendent Kathy Cox says that the state's schools will have at least two rough years before education funding gets better, according to the Associated Press. She says that $39 million must be cut from the budget. More furloughs and bigger classes could come as a result of those cuts.

Some good news for several Albany schools. The Albany Herald reports that Robert Cross Middle School in Dougherty County won the Academic Bowl title Thursday. It beat rival Merry Acres by 50 points. Both of those schools, as well as two others, will advance to the regional tournament in Moultrie next month.
