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
governor.

Stimulus Money Bringing Progress and Frustration to Buford Dam Road

FORSYTH CO., Ga. -- It's going to be a frustrating fall for many when a 3-mile section of Buford Dam Road is closed for a stimulus funded repaving project.

For five weeks beginning October 4, The Army Corps of Engineers will close their section of Buford Dam Road that crosses Lake Lanier. $1.2-million in federal stimulus funds will pay for a fresh coat of asphalt.

It is one of three road projects along the busy road that will overlap between now and the end of fall. There are estimates than 10,000 people use Buford Dam Road each day.

"I don't like the inconvenience," said Herb Stuhler, whose home is just west of where the section of Buford Dam Road will close.

Come October, Stuhler won't be able to turn right out of his subdivision to head toward Gwinnett County to visit family. He'll have to take a winding route to Highway 20.
