Augusta-Richmond County's next mayor will make a bit of history, as one of the three men and two women vying for the office of mayor will be the first black mayor in the history of the consolidated government.
Two men were found with gunshot wounds early Saturday in Warrenville, S.C., authorities say.
Last week, the National Nuclear Security Administration began a process to place the multibillion-dollar, under-construction facility on standby in light of continuous federal funding drawbacks.
Looking down the list of candidates who qualified for mayor of Augusta and commission seats, I see there are four pastors. If all were elected, the mayor's office and five commission seats, counting sitting District 9 Commissioner Marion Williams, would be filled by preachers. God knows the city needs some divine intervention, but the meetings would never end.
