Republican Candidate for Governor Backtracks on "Open Mind" on Casinos

Atlanta, GA (AP)-- Republican gubernatorial hopeful Nathan Deal is backpedaling on casinos after at least one prominent Christian
conservative activist called to voice concerns.
Deal created a stir when he said earlier this month that he was
willing to keep an "open mind" about the possibility of casinos
in Georgia. This week, Deal spokesman Brian Robinson said the
former congressman from Gainesville "personally opposes casino
gambling" and doesn't believe they're the best way to spur the
state's economy. Robinson wouldn't say whether Deal would sign a
veto a casino bill if one landed on his desk.
The campaign of Deal's opponent, Democrat Roy Barnes, said
Deal's waffling shows he "is too unsteady for the job" of

Von Grey Sisters Hit the Stage with Sarah McLachlan

 ALPHARETTA- Kathryn, Annika, Fiona and Petra, the group of sisters ranging from 10-15, are like most teenage girls; they like to shop, read Twilight books and hang out with their friends. However, they're different; they're a bluegrass/pop/country group called "Von Grey" which just happens to be their last name.

"Real" Estate Broker Found Guilty of Fraud

ATLANTA-  Alpharetta real estate broker Robert Negrelli, 65, plead guilty in federal district court to making false statements during a 2005 bankruptcy case filed with the Bankruptcy Court for the Northern District of Georgia, earlier this month.

Negrelli, who once owned a real estate company in Alpharetta which "specialized in the sale of high-end homes and horse farms in the area" and was a licensed real estate broker deliberately falsified his income claiming to have earned, a mere, $81,000 during a two-year span. When confronted about his claims he admitted to making a significant amount more through his company, Negrelli Realty.

Kindergarten Students Stay Cool on 1st Day

SANDY SPRINGS, GA -- In Ms. Spizman's kindergarten class at Spalding Drive Charter Elementary School, there were brave faces and proud parents but no tears.

"We were here for Pre-K last year, so it's easier," said Rachel Simon, who snapped photos of her son Eli at his desk early Monday. "He's doing great."

"He's pretty excited, but he keeps it inside," said Matt Simon, Eli's dad. "He just wants us to leave."

Monday is the first day of school for more than 92,000 students in Fulton County Schools, the state's fourth largest public school system.

Students started their first day at least two weeks later than other school systems in Metro Atlanta.

To make up the time, the system's adding ten minutes of math instruction to every school day.

"It's thinking of the kids when they're extending the schedule, which works for me," said parent Brenda Thomas.
