Voice of the Georgia Bulldogs dies
The voice of a legend has been silenced. Larry Munson, who was the voice of the Georgia Bulldogs for 42 years, died at his home in Athens late last night from complications from pneumonia. Most of Munson's career was spent with the Bulldogs from 1966 to 2008. Funeral arrangements have not yet been determined.
Riverwalk construction delayed
Columbus officials say construction on the damaged Riverwalk will not start until after the first of the year. The reason for the delay is so all necessary materials can arrive. The Riverwalk collapsed about three weeks ago because of work for the new Whitewater course on the Chattahoochee River. Construction is expected to take two to three months.
Alabama's immigration law challenge
A federal judge is reviewing a lawsuit claiming Alabama's new immigration law will leave some immigrants homeless. The deadline to renew their manufactured home registration is November 30th. But part of the law prohibits making contracts with illegal immigrants. The suit filed Friday by two Elmore County immigrants asked Judge Myron Thompson to issue an order stopping the enforcement of this section of the law.
