GNB Update

Here's what's happening for the first day of June on GNB...

Two key endorsements for a gubernatorial candidate. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that former Governor Roy Barnes earned those endorsements from former Atlanta Mayors Andrew Young and Shirley Franklin. Barnes is trying to win back the seat he lost to current Governor Sonny Perdue.

Governor Perdue puts his stamp on new water conservation laws. The Associated Press reports that the two-term Repulican governor signed that legislation into law Tuesday. The new rules will ban nearly all watering outside from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

A crumbling structure could soon come down in Albany. The Albany Herald reports that city commissioners voted to sue the owner of the dilapidated Heritage House Tuesday. In that lawsuit, the city will argue that the building is a threat to public safety.
