Pat Conroy to visit UNG

GAINESVILLE, Ga. -- Atlanta native and bestselling author Pat Conroy will participate in the University of North Georgia's tribute to writer Mary Hood next month.

Conroy, best known for writing The Prince of Tides, will give a reading in the Martha T. Nesbitt Academic Building on the school's Gainesville campus on Friday, Oct. 4 at 7 p.m.

Other participants include Hood and novelist Philip Lee Williams.

"As far as I know, Mary Hood has never written an uninteresting sentence in her life, and I've read and loved everything she's ever written. In the immaculate work of Hood, I've always found her choice of subjects both offbeat and surprising," Conroy said. "This conference in Mary Hood's honor will be a celebration of her splendid and ongoing career, and there is nowhere I would rather be than reveling with her throngs of admirers and literary disciples as we laud a most magnificent writer."

N. Ga. congressional runoff to be held Tuesday

N. Ga. congressional runoff to be held Tuesday

ATLANTA -- Republican voters in north Georgia will be heading to the polls to cast their ballots in the race for the state's newest congressional seat.

State Rep. Doug Collins, a lawmaker with ties to the governor, faces conservative talk show host Martha Zoller in Tuesday's GOP runoff for the 9th Congressional District, which covers Gainesville and parts of north Georgia.

Polls open at 7 a.m. and close at 7 p.m.

Just over 700 votes out of nearly 110,000 votes cast separated Collins from Zoller in last month's Republican primary. The winner of Tuesday's runoff will have a substantial edge in the general election given the GOP's strength in the district.

The candidates have focused heavily on proving their conservative credentials. The winner will face Democrat Jody Cooley in November.

Gov. Deal swears in Ga. Supreme Court justice

Gov. Deal swears in Ga. Supreme Court justice

ATLANTA (AP) - Gov. Nathan Deal has sworn in the newest justice of the Supreme Court of Georgia.

Georgia Court of Appeals Judge Keith Blackwell was sworn in Thursday morning in the House Chamber of the State Capitol.

Deal last month appointed the 37-year-old Blackwell to fill a vacancy left by Chief Justice George Carley. Carley's resignation as chief justice was effective Tuesday.

Blackwell had served on the Court of Appeals since he was appointed in 2010 by former Gov. Sonny Perdue. He is the 92nd justice since the court's creation in 1845.

Blackwell previously practiced civil and criminal law. He will serve on the court until 2014, when voters will decide whether to keep him on the bench for a six-year term.
