Bakery To Bring Jobs To Hall County

GAINESVILLE, GA -- California-based King's Hawaiian will build a 111,000-square-foot facility in Oakwood.

The bakery and distribution operation is expected to create 126 new jobs over two years and an additional 100 jobs around 2015.

The company produces dinner rolls, sandwich and snack rolls and round bread.

The company expects to begin production at the new facility in fall 2011.

Gov. Sonny Perdue says the facility will provide a "considerable boost" to the state economy.

Bull Meter: Is Nathan Deal Financially 'Transparent'?

ATLANTA -- Republican Nathan Deal says his personal finances are now public.  Last week, he disclosed summaries of his income tax returns.  That, he says, supplements disclosure forms he submitted to Congress.  Deal claims it gives the public insight into his income sources -- including his ownership in a Gainesville salvage company that became part of a Congressional ethics investigation.

"It does show it on the Congressional disclosure form," Deal told 11Alive News.  We asked why he didn't disclose those details on his tax form.

"Well, I just don't think it's required that individuals who are not running for public office be disclosed as part of my disclosure," said Deal.  He's referring to his partners in the salvage business.  He says disclosing those details in his taxes would disclose their private business.
