First Slice 9/5/13: Deal accused of fighting Obamacare using $1 million from healthcare-industry-backed PAC

Georgia Tech has created 'Georgia Tech Starter,' a crowdfunding website designed to help raise cash for science research.

Better Georgia has accused Gov. Nathan Deal of using close to $1 million from a political action committee, allegedly funded by healthcare corporations, to fund the fight against Obamacare. The governor's attorney calls the progressive advocacy group's claims "ridiculous."

Georgia Public Service Commissioners Doug Everett and Tim Echols have proposed to give a $10,000 fine from telephone company Peerless Network of Georgia LLC to Care Net, an anti-abortion non-profit organization. According to State Attorney General Sam Olens, that would be illegal!

Gainesville school officials are considering storing assault rifles in their schools in case of an emergency. "These things happen quickly, they happen unexpectedly and in places and locations where we can't anticipate. Any lapse of time to get a weapon would be detrimental in an emergency," said Gainesville City Schools Superintendent Merrianne Dyer.

A water main broke, and caused havoc, last night on Clairmont Road. The road remains closed in both directions and the damage could take several days to repair.
