Editor's note: TODAY'S EDITION IS A RE-FEED OF YESTERDAY'S NEWS. PLEASE BE PATIENT WITH US AS WE PERFECT OUR BETA VERSION.

The Georgia Online News Service (GONSO) has an offer we hope you can't refuse. For the next several weeks, we'll be sending you content by some of the most outstanding journalists in the state, most of them veterans of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Creative Loafing and other news organizations. The list includes Tom Baxter, Bill Osinski, Lyle Harris and John Sugg. Additionally, you'll find a diversity of opinion (edited by former AJC editor David Beasley) from the likes of Hollis Gillespie and Ralph Reed. During this trial period, please send your feedback to me: john.sugg@georgiaonlinenews.org or at 404-906-0852.

After the trial, you'll have the opportunity to become subscribers to GONSO. All of our content will be available to you along with the world, national and sports wire services of Reuters at a price well below that of traditional news services.

Today's stories are below. As we test GONSO, we'll be redistributing the same package tomorrow. If you have any technical issues, please apprise me of those, too. Starting Monday, each day will bring new stories.
