    Don't ask, don't tell: Why Ga. won't survey teens on sex
    February 1, 2010 --

    Every two years, U.S. high school students answer questions in a CDC-sponsored survey that helps guide policy on sex education and teen pregnancy. But not in Georgia.

    Ex-Dodge sheriff charged with buying votes with cash, liquor & drugs

    September 26, 2009 --

    Cash, alcohol and — gasp! — drugs were used to buy votes on behalf of former Dodge County Sheriff Lawton Douglas in 2004, a federal indictment alleges. Douglas, who served one term and was defeated for re-election last year, and two others will be arraigned Thursday in Dublin on vote-buying charges. He faces up to 30 years in prison.
