College hasn’t paid employees for months
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.
