The Georgia presidential primaries are February 5. However, advance
voting statewide starts January 28 and runs through February 1. You

until the day of the election. Photo ID is required to vote.

A Graniteville man has been arrested on sexual assault charges against children dating back to the 1970s. William "Bucky" Hicks is being held without bond now.

The Augusta Regional Airport celebrates its new terminal Saturday.
There's an open house from 1 to 5 pm. All the activities are free, and
