The weekend is here...Here's the news...
Ohio's loss seems to be Georgia's gain. Dayton, Ohio television station WDTN reports that nearly 600 employees at NCR must find new jobs by the end of September. The ATM manufacturer announced in June that it will move its headquarters to Gwinnett County.
There's controversy surrounding a southwest Georgia school system. WALB Albany reports that Randolph County school superintendent Bobby Jenkins and board chairman Henry Cook will spend four days in jail starting August 10. Superior Court Judge Kevin Chason found both men in contempt of court for not listening to other school board members.
