First Slice 4/23/13: Georgia Power to give wind energy a try

Posted By on Tue, Apr 23, 2013 at 8:30 AM

Atlanta Police have responded to, and in some cases disarmed, a number of suspicious-but-harmless packages throughout the city over the past week. WABE says that has occurred due to "hyper-vigilance" following the Boston Marathon bombings last week.

Atlanta Public Schools will begin its search today for interim superintendent Erroll Davis' successor. The city's school system will discuss the kind of replacement it wants at an initial meeting tonight with PROACT Search, a company it has enlisted for the hiring process.

APS also announced that it will enact around $45 million in pay and job cuts.

Georgia Power will soon try its hand at wind energy for the first time. The deal to buy 250 megawatts of energy would begin in 2016 and is expected to reduce customer costs.

The Department of Corrections has stopped Midtown Alliance from using people ordered to do community service as part of their court sentences. The civic organization, aimed at improving Midtown, used workers on probation to clear brush off of private property.

Atlanta Braves outfielder Jason Heyward successfully underwent appendectomy surgery. It's unclear when he'll return to the field.
