Georgia Republican Gov. Sonny Perdue and Democratic U.S. Vice President Joe Biden stood together on at least one issue Thursday - an effort to improve communication and attract industry in North Georgia.
A judge on Thursday sentenced a former Jefferson police captain to a year in prison for having a gun while using crack cocaine, but declined to increase the sentence for a grenade found in the ex-officer's car.
The model car lay shattered on the basement floor, its pieces scattered in every direction.
For weeks, a young Tod Peavy had tinkered and toiled and thought of nothing but this car. But his foster mother resented the red roadster. She hadn't given it to him. Instead, a holiday well-wisher purchased the present for an anonymous foster child, and caseworkers put the toy in the boy's hands for Christmas.
