Specialist expands treatment options at cancer center

People who are diagnosed with a malignant tumor can generally expect to be referred to at least two specialists: a surgeon, who will try to remove the tumor, and a medical oncologist, who will administer chemotherapy.

Rep. Deal pleased with extension of PeachCare

Georgia's PeachCare program is safe for another year and a half, after Congress passed an extension plan that had been pushed by U.S. Rep. Nathan Deal, R-Gainesville.

"We had introduced a bill early on, when it appeared there would be a stalemate," Deal said. "We felt like the states needed some certainty that they could count on in terms of funding, and 18 months was the most realistic time frame."

Funding impedes Hall trial

The thorny issue of defense funding for accused Fulton County courthouse shooter Brian Nichols has trickled down to Hall County, where a long-pending death penalty trial could be delayed another six months or more, a lawyer said Thursday.

Attorneys for Cornelio Zamites, charged in the 2005 kidnapping, rape and strangulation death of 4-year-old Esmeralda Nava, want a separate jury trial to determine whether he is mentally competent to stand trial on the charges. But first they need the money to hire an expert to evaluate Zamites.
