GNB Update

Good Monday afternoon at GNB...Here's what's happening...

A commissioner in one southwest Georgia county wants to put a stop to texting while driving. The Albany Herald reports that Dougherty County commissioner Jack Stone is considering legislation that would make that practice illegal. He brought up the proposal during the commission's work session Monday morning. A similar law proposed by state lawmakers would force drivers to pay $100 when they send texts while driving.

Multiple bills were considered by the General Assembly Monday. The legislation considered ranged from creating a metal theft registry in the state Senate, to probation suspension. The Senate Ethics Committee also brought its proposed rules for 2010 up for a vote.

Radio listeners in Warner Robins noticed some changes on their dial on their way to work Monday morning. The Warner Robins Patriot reports that talk station WNNG changed its call letters to WRWR AM/FM. The AM station operates at 1350, while the FM station moved up the dial 99.9 to 107.5. The parent company for WRWR, Georgia Eagle Media, also has plans to put a TV station on the air in June.
