GNB Update

Here are the goings-on for Tuesday...

A public transportation bill could be pushed towards passage. That's according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The AJC reports that the Atlanta Regional Commission is making a last-ditch effort to get the legislation passed. An e-mail alert sent out Monday says only one week remains to convince lawmakers that transportation is a crucial issue. ARC representatives are in meetings for the rest of the week.

Milledgeville is looking to move on from the Ben Roethlisberger case. Macon.com reports that residents in the middle Georgia college town have grown weary of the scrutiny surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback. On Monday, Baldwin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright announced he would not prosecute Roethlisberger for the alleged rape of a female student at Georgia College & State University.

Professional baseball could soon return to southwest Georgia. The Albany Herald says that the Peach State League is considering using the Paul Eames Complex on a trial during the independent minor league's trial season, which starts in June. The South Georgia Peanuts of the South Coast League were the last team to play in Albany. That happened in 2007.
