Col­lege hasn’t paid em­ploy­ees for months

The Covington News - - Crime -

The girls were re-in­dicted by a grand jury in early Au­gust to start things over so that the case can go to trial more quickly. They are fac­ing ag­gra­vated as­sault, mal­ice murder and felony murder charges, which are the same felony charges they were in­dicted un­der orig­i­nally in mid-July 2010. no one could have pre­dicted a year ago.

Tail­back Ken Mal­come and full­back Mer­ritt Hall are the sur­prise picks to line up be­hind quar­ter­back Aaron Mur­ray when No. 6 Ge­or­gia plays Buf­falo on Satur­day.

One year ago, Mal­come quit the team for one day be­cause he be­lieved he had no chance to play.

Mal­come said he is glad he stayed at Ge­or­gia. He is lead­ing a tail­back com­mit­tee that also in­cludes fresh­men Todd Gur­ley and Keith Mar­shall.

Mal­come (6-0, 224) plans to be more than just a bridge from the 2011 fresh­man rush­ing leader Isa­iah Crow­ell to the new fresh­men.

“I want it a lot,” Mal­come said of the start­ing job. “I’m just ready to show what I can do as a run­ning back when I’m re­ally fo­cused.”

Crow­ell, dis­missed from the team fol­low­ing a weapons charge, has trans­ferred to Alabama State.

Mal­come played in only six games and had only 142 yards rush­ing last sea­son. Richt said Mal­come is more ma­ture and more de­ter­mined as a third-year sopho­more.

Richt said the change for Mal­come be­gan when he re­al­ized leav­ing Ge­or­gia “was not a good thing.”

“I said if you do come back, I just want to see the best Ken Mal­come, and aca­dem­i­cally, too,” Richt said. “He has just ma­tured a lot. I’m just proud of him.

AT­LANTA (AP) — Court records show that Mor­ris Brown Col­lege, which faces pos­si­ble fore­clo­sure, has not paid some of its em­ploy­ees for three months.

The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion re­ports that the his­tor­i­cally black At­lanta col­lege owes work­ers hun­dreds of thou­sands of dol­lars in back pay from an even longer pe­riod.

The school filed for bank­ruptcy pro­tec­tion this month, hop­ing to pre­vent cam­pus build­ings from be­ing auc­tioned.

Court records from the bank­ruptcy fil­ing show that Mor­ris Brown is also more than $30 mil­lion in debt to at least 200 cred­i­tors.

The school’s debt in­cludes $13 mil­lion in bonds is­sued in 1996 through the Ful­ton County De­vel­op­ment Author­ity. Ann Aaron­son, an at­tor­ney for Mor­ris Brown, said the school is hop­ing to work out an agree­ment with the bond­hold­ers to re­solve the debt.

AT­LANTA (AP) — Po­lice are in­ves­ti­gat­ing the fourth se­ri­ous wreck in­volv­ing a wrong-way driver in the past two weeks in metro At­lanta.

In the lat­est ac­ci­dent, two peo­ple were killed when a pickup truck head­ing the wrong way on In­ter­state 85 slammed into an­other pickup just south of At­lanta on Wed­nes­day.

The At­lanta Jour­nal-Con­sti­tu­tion re­ports that the col­li­sion hap­pened 3:20 p.m., shut­ting down I-85 in both direc­tions for a time.
