COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - A national advocacy group has designated a Columbus bicycle shop as the most bike-friendly business in Georgia. The designation awarded to Ride On Bikes by the League of American Bicyclists has little to do with what the shop sells, or that it was the only bike shop in downtown Columbus when it opened 15 years ago.

ATLANTA (AP) - The candidates for Georgia governor are set to meet in their final debates before voters hit the polls in Tuesday's primaries. The five Republican candidates will meet first at 10:30 a.m. Sunday. The two Democrats get their chance Sunday at 1 p.m. Previous Republican debates have been dominated by tough talk on immigration and strong support for gun rights. The Democrats have mainly focused on funding for public education and criticism of cuts to the HOPE scholarship program.

JONESBORO, Ga. (AP) - A newspaper is reporting that police in Georgia have made two arrests in a fatal shooting outside a high school graduation ceremony. The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Clayton County Police spokeswoman Marcena Davis confirmed the arrests but said their names and charges are not being released yet. The victims were two women hit by gunfire following an argument after the ceremony at the Clayton County Performing Arts Center.

LYNCHBURG, Va. (AP) - Former President Jimmy Carter started his commencement address at Liberty University in Virginia with a gentle jab at President Donald Trump, who took the same podium a year earlier. Carter said his host told him Saturday's crowd was even bigger than 2017. Carter drew laughter when he said, "I don't know if President Trump would admit that." The remark harkened back to controversies over Trump's claim of a massive inauguration crowd.
